Morgan on Barton: "Jon has a combination of good size and quick hands in net. He also has a knack for playing very well in big games. Jon also has a very quick outlet which will add to our up-tempo transition game. At times this Jon showed the ability to play at the level of any goalie we saw this summer. He comes from a great high school program, so we know he will be ready for the high level of competition he will face here."

Scott Corcoran, Defense, (Wilmington, Mass. /Austin Preparatory) 2010 & 2011 Boston Globe All Catholic League All Star and Scholastic All Star ... three year varsity starter..59 ground balls and 28 caused turnovers in 2011.

Morgan on Corcoran: "Scott is a very aggressive defender who is relentless on ball and will bring an added toughness to our squad. He has the ability to play down or up at long stick midfield due to his athleticism. Scott has the ability to cause turnovers and is very solid in transition. He will probably be one of the more athletic defenders on our team next year."

Ryan Poirier, Midfield/Attack, (Warwick, RI. /La Salle Academy/Brewster Academy.) 2011 All American ... .Adidas All American 2010 & 2011 ... .1st Team All State 2010 & 2011 ... 2011 Overall point leader in Rhode Island ... finished career with 75 goals, 70 assists and 145 groundballs.

He will give us another offensive player who can get to the goal and has a very high lacrosse IQ. Ryan also has shown that he can play well off ball as well as get his teammates involved. Being the top point scorer in RI last year shows he can consistently perform at a high level."
