3d Rising - Player Evaluations from 3d Lacrosse, 4/18

3d Lacrosse specializes in superior training for individuals and teams and operates events and tournaments as well as select travel teams. The organization, founded by former Division I coach Jamie Munro, assists players and coaches using a compre≠hen≠sive system of lacrosse development that exposes young players to the tactics and strategies implemented at the NCAA level. 3d Lacrosse applies the "Box/Field Hybridô Development System," which Munro pioneered at the University of Denver.

LaxPower will carrying periodic player reports from 3d Lacrosse. Field staff attend high school games around the country and provide player evaluations and ratings. The ratings are either legit (likely a Division I scholarship player), player (likely a Division I recruit), and watch list (has the potential to be a Division I player; need to see more, needs to grow, mature, or develop to be sure-fire D1).

We begin the series of player evaluation reports with one from Massachusetts on Roxbury Latin and one from Georgia that involves multiple teams participating in the seventh annual AJO4Lax Fest at Pope High School.

Roxbury Latin School (Boston, MA) by Greg Weigel

I recently had the privilege of working with the Roxbury Latin team for a week at 3d SpringBreak. Apart from being a very coachable, hardworking group of kids, there are some players with real ability.

#9 Sean Lowry 2015
Roxbury Latin, Boston, MA
Position: Attack/Midfield
Sub-Position: Dodger, Feeder, Finisher
College Commitment: Duke
Rating: Player

Sean is a dominant player who is one or two steps away from being an unstoppable force. He has the speed, athleticism, and size to be a prototype midfielder but it is meant to be an attackman. Because of Sean's physical stature and impressive time and room shot people will over look his two best qualities: inside finishing and vision. Like many slick attackmen Sean is a fantastic low angle finisher driving up field with either hand. In tight Sean is a clever player who uses fakes, hitches, and fake roll backs to beat his man; if he becomes a better face up dodger in space he will give defensemen nightmares.

#11 Alex Abelite 2015
Roxbury Latin, Boston, MA
Position: Defense
Sub-Posistion: On ball, Face offs
Rating: Watch List

Alex is a big physical presence who brings the heat each and every play. He can become over extended at times but plays solid physical defense for the most part. Alex had the opportunity to work with Dave Jenkins while on SpringBreak and has been dominating the face off X ever since, winning the draw cleanly and playing forward to himself for a fast break. If Alex gets more comfortable moving backwards, and continues to develop at the face off X he could be moving off the Watch List.

#2 Rob Shaw 2014
Roxbury Latin, Boston, MA
Position: Goalie
Rating: Watch List

Rob is a really solid goalie; he makes the saves from deep that he should make plus a few of the spectacular ones on the crease. Clearing is an asset for Rob; he throws a strong, accurate outlet pass. However, he could be faster at getting the ball up and out to his middies off of saves. Rob is the clear leader of the defense. He is an effective communicator who does not ask his defense who the "hot" man is, he tells them.
