Here are the players who impressed 6-10 from the Lax Madness event.
We ended the Fall Tournament circuit by covering a great event with tremendous talent on display.
The events we covered this year have been well run and mindful to the COVID-19 restrictions.
Lacrosse Stadium Series organized Lax Madness and was hosted by De_Turf in Federica, Delaware.
The event was originally booked in Anne Arundel County, Maryland but due to rising coronavirus cases and the county shutting down events, the folks from Lax Stadium Series had to move Lax Madness.
“We were very pleased with the success of the Lacrosse Stadium Series, Lax Madness.
The goal for this the tournament was to provide a safe, competitive recruiting event for both the players and college coaches,” said event runner Will Dalton from Lax Stadium Series.
Several teams dropped out, but teams from Anne Arundel County and couple others were able to attend the event in Delaware.
We got to view a new club program, the White Rose club based out of York, Pennsylvania.
Also in attendance, was several teams from Anne Arundel Co., and they included, the A-town team which was (Annapolis High), Bayside (Broadneck HS), Southern HS and Prostart which mixture of players from around the Maryland area as well as several teams comprised of players from St. Mary’s Annapolis. And then from Harford County, Md were the Cougars (Fallston HS), and MDLL (Maryland Lacrosse League).
“We are really excited about the future of Lacrosse Stadium Series and looking forward to hosting our next event this summer, The Champions Cup.”
All of the programs there had teams comprised of players between the 2021-2024 grad years.
Here are the 10 Players who Impressed us from Lax Madness.
Bobby Keane – 2023 – Midfield – St. Mary’s Annapolis (Md.) ProStart
Keane has the skills and Lax IQ to play at the top collegiate programs in the country. Bobby has a nose for the ball and does a nice job creating offense.
Nick Creisher Goalie 2023 York Catholic (Pa.) – White Rose LC
Creisher made some unbelievable saves. Had good command of the defense and made sure to call out where the ball was. The White Rose 2023 team was impressive as a whole.
Tommy Wilk- 2022 – Goalie – Mount St Joe HS (Md.) – Prostart
The goalie play was really good at Lax Madness. Wilk shined every game we saw him play in. Good work ethic, fundamentals were solid, didn’t get rattled when he let in a goal. The MSJ junior goalie should be on college coaches radars.
Jacob Nottoli – 2022 – Midfield – St. Paul’s (Md.)
Nottoli has all of the tools to be a star lacrosse player at the next level. Jacob can run on Midfield and hold down the offense at attack without a problem. We’re looking forward to seeing Nottoli play more in 2021 for the Crusaders.
CJ Marek – 2022 – Attack – Kent Island (Md.) – Prostart
Marek another nice lacrosse player with good field sense and a laser shot on cage. CJ does a nice job moving his feet and getting GLE for a good shot! The Saints and coach Lilly will have a solid squad in 2021.
Mike Constantino – 2022- D/LSM – Northern HS (Md.) – MDLL
Constantino – showed fight, he showed great fundamentals and he showed up when causing a turnover and sticking on his attackman. Mike will continue to get better.
Landen Hyatt – 2022- Attack – St. John’s College HS (DC) – Prostart
Hyatt is a smooth operator around the cage and moves great towards cage to score. Good field vision. Unselfish. Determined on the ride. Great day for Hyatt at Lax Madness.
Jack Gulley – 2023 – Midfield – Red Lion HS (Pa.) – White Rose LC
Gulley hustles well. Creates offense and will make smart decisions with the ball or off ball. Isn’t afraid to fight for a GB. Red Lion has some impressive talent.
Brady Gauntner – 2022 Goalie – Southern HS (Md.)
In the game we saw Gauntner play he showed us his toughness. Southern was getting shelled and despite letting up some goals, albeit the defense was struggling, Brady didn’t give up. The junior netminder made some tough stops as well.
Aiden Doyle – 2021 – Attack/Midfield – Broadneck HS (Md.)
Doyle is a big tough kid. Aiden complemented his toughness by playing sound offense and making things happen. Scored a couple nice goals. We were impressed with his total makeup. The senior attackman is a kind of player you want on your side.
