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

#25 Brayton Wadella 2013
Pope High School, Marietta GA
Position: Attack
Sub-Position: Feeder, finisher
College Commitment: Arizona State, MCLA
Rating: Player

Brayton Wadella had 2 goals and 1 assist. Wadella has played midfield in the past, but now has settled at attack. His background between the restraining lines is clear in the way he prefers large sweeping dodges up top with big hands free shooting. Wadella has a powerful shot which is going in if he gets it on cage.

#2 Joe Harmon 2014
Pope High School, Marietta GA
Position: Goalie
Rating: Watch List

Joe Harmon is a right-handed goalie who played consistently between the pipes with both high and low saves. The score could have been a lot closer with a less competent keeper. He's capable of quick outlet passes off a save as well as intelligent settled clears. What I like about Harmon is that he is relaxed and really seems to enjoy his time in goal.

Game 2: Centennial High School 13 / Lambert High School 8

Centennial High School, Roswell, GA
Bryan Wallace is a CC and the Director of Lacrosse for this 6A program. A product of Minnechaug Regional High School, where he was an All American, he continued his lacrosse career at UMass. He is the Operations Manager of the LB3 Lacrosse Club in Georgia. The Knights entered this game 8-0 and clinched the 6A Area 3 #1 seed and home field advantage for the playoff season. What is most exciting is that they carry a roster of only 23 players heavily weighted to sophomores and juniors, so Centennial should be a legit state championship contender for the next couple of years.

Lambert High School, Suwanee, GA
Rich Wehman is a CC and the Director of Lacrosse for this reclassified 6A program. A product of Ward Melville High School, Wehman attended the Naval Academy where he was a 4 year starter and 3 time All American at attack. He began coaching at Lambert in 2008 and led the Longhorns to back-to-back state championships in 2011 and 2012. They entered this season riding a 42 game winning streak, but stumbled early in a loss to Northview. Centennial handed Lambert their 4th loss for this season. With assistant coaching depth exemplified by Jason Breyo (Delaware) and the largest feeder program in the state (600 boys), Lambert is a behemoth that's here to stay.

#3 Nate Solomon 2015
Centennial High School, Roswell, GA
Position: Attack
Sub-Position: Feeder, finisher
Rating: Player

Nate Solomon accounted for the majority of Centennial's points in this convincing win over defending state champions, Lambert. He had 5 goals and 3 assists and was named MVP of the game. In my opinion he was the top performer at the tournament. As the X attack man for Knights, Solomon is a great distributor of the ball and finisher. Not so much a one on one dodger as a savvy player who is in the right place at the right time. I had the opportunity to watch Solomon at the 3dBC Mid-Atlantic tryouts in January and was as impressed there as I was today. He plays for LB3 South and will be at Nike Blue Chip and Maverick Showtime this summer.

#12 Zack Levy 2015
Centennial High School, Roswell, GA
Position: Midfield
Sub-Position: Face off, dodger, feeder
Rating: Player

Zach Levy dominated at the face off X and had 3 assists. He was able to pop the ball forward or pull it backward as suited the moment. I was most impressed with his acceleration on an alley dodge down the right side where he dumped the ball back to #22, Austin Prescott, on the crease for a goal.

#6 Alex Prescott 2014
Centennial High School, Roswell, GA
Position: Midfield
Sub-Position: Feeder, finisher
Rating: Watch List

#22 Austin Prescott 2014
Centennial High School, Roswell, GA
Position: Attack
Sub-Position: Feeder, finisher
Rating: Watch List

The Prescott twins accounted for 5 goals between them. Alex had 3 goals and Austin had 2 goals. These boys are big athletic players, with great dodging and finishing skills. Austin is a lefty. Both play football for the Knights, Alex as a wide receiver and Austin as a safety. Definitely worth keeping an eye on how these sophomores develop.
