First, we would like to dedicate this Top 50 to our dear friend, Macy Jaggers. Macy recently passed away and she was a huge supporter of not only our work but she loved the game of lacrosse. She will be sorely missed. Rest in Peace to one of the best Lax parents ever.
Secondly, we are excited to bring this list to you. We attended events at the beginning of September up until December.
We saw players that we’ve been itching to see all year and they are on this list.
The one thing you’ll notice is we have more goalie representation on this list. The goalie play this fall was off the charts. The same can be said for the faceoff guys. We enjoyed some great face-off matchups this fall including several when we attended the training session at our proud sponsor, Inner Circle Lacrosse.
The Top 50 is strictly players we saw at events and were impressed with. That includes club events, showcases and the play days which we loved the most.
There’s no politics with this Top 50 or personal bias towards a player or a particular club team. It’s just the kids we saw. So please don’t come to us wondering why a certain player isn’t on the Top 50. If they aren’t it’s because we didn’t see them play in person.
We attended a ton of events this fall for the sole purpose to make sure we saw all the players from around the nation to be considered for this Top 50.
These rankings are also made up of the players who made our “Top Players Who Impressed” from various events.
Our very own Tom Peace evaluated, took notes and got feedback from many evaluators at these events. Tom has been in the lax recruiting business for over 10 years, whether it be as a journalist or as a recruiting coordinator for the top junior colleges in the nation. So this list will be done the right way.
We took into various different factors for this list. How a player scored a goal or caused a turnover was just one factor. We also looked at how a player dealt with adversity, how they communicated with coaches/ referees and teammates. And we even researched if a player was a multi-sport athlete and did well in the classroom. Basically, we did our homework.
Please enjoy these rankings. And we wish you a Happy Holidays!
