The final roster is set for the most exciting and significant lacrosse weekend in the West. The Adrenaline All-American game featuring LXM PRO will take place at Orange Coast College June 8th in Costa Mesa, CA.
The fun-filled day of lacrosse will begin early Saturday morning with a youth through high school tournament that corresponds to the LXM professional series. Each team will play a total of two games leading up to a double header- LXM and Adrenaline All-American games.
The full-length LXM professional game will begin at 4:30 PM featuring the top pro players in the game including Kyle Harrison, Sam Bradman, Tim Desko, and Matt Russell. Following the LXM game at 7 PM, lacrosse enthusiasts will get to watch the top 50 seniors west of the Mississippi play a competitive full length North vs. South all-star game. This game is the only chance for fans to truly see the pride of the entire west compete in one location.
The two stacked Adrenaline All-American rosters are composed of 45 NCAA D1 players and 5 NCAA D2 & D3 players.
“We are very proud of this event,” said Alex Cade, President and CMO of Adrenaline. “It feels great to be able to provide a setting that combines the best players in the game at the professional and high school level for fans to enjoy.
“For the western United States this is the most significant event of the year and a true tribute to Western lacrosse and the players and coaches that make it so great. We are very thankful for all the sponsors who have rallied around and shared our vision for this type of event”
The Adrenaline All-American game has etched itself as the pinnacle in the careers of the best western High School lacrosse players. The game is the perfect celebration of the illustrious success of these young men, who are all heading off to play at the collegiate level.
“What makes this game so special, is that most of these boys have come through the Adrenaline ranks at one point in time and we are proud to have had even a slight hand in their success and development over the years,” said Jono Zissi, Recruiting Director for Adrenaline. “These young men have left an indelible mark and are the perfect ambassadors for the western lacrosse movement.
“They have laid a solid foundation for the younger generations to build on, and we wish them nothing but the best as they head to the next level.”
Thirteen years ago the initial efforts from Adrenaline were focused on encouraging recruiters to travel west to watch western players in their own element. What has kept recruiters coming back are the current western born NCAA players that are having a powerful impact on the collegiate game.
Many of these western born collegiate players who we all watch throughout the spring are previous Adrenaline All Americans and born of the Adrenaline Recruiting System. Notable past All-American players who have already proved themselves worthy contenders at the next level are Challen Rogers, Michael Hernandez, Tanner Scales, and Dakota Rohlin.
The 2013 rosters include players from nine states and one province: Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Texas, Minnesota, Nevada, and British Columbia. Key players in this year’s All-American game include Kieran Eissler (Hopkins), Lucas Gradinger (Maryland), Wilkins Dismuke (Hopkins), Matt Emery (Virginia) and Mike Schlosser (Michigan).
