3d Rising - Player Evaluations from 3d Lacrosse, 5/19

Jack Beare 2014
Episcopal School of Dallas, Texas
Notre Dame Commit
Position: Attackman
Sub Position: Off Ball Attackman / Finishing Specialist
Rating: Legit

One of the more excitable players in the Texas High School Lacrosse League is, without a doubt, Jack Beare. The crafty and capable crease finisher has made a living getting his hands free and putting the biscuit in the basket. A smart player who finds space, Beare understands his role and excels at it. Committed to play for the Fighting Irish, he looks to continue a successful lineage of consistent crease men as Ryan Hoff and, now, Ryan Mix who have done a great job for Notre Dame around the cage. Beare has also worked on his ability behind the cage. He understands that defenses are looking to get his hands free so his vision ability to distribute has also continued to improve. With the weapons at hand over at ESD, it makes sense to move the ball with purpose which he frequently does. Beare has been finishing since his freshman year where he started almost immediately. Hopefully, he'll help ESD finish a successful, post-season run.

Sam Romano 2015
Episcopal School of Dallas, Texas
Syracuse Commit
Position: Midfield
Sub Position: Alley Dodger / Split & Go / Athlete in Transition
Rating: Legit

Romano stepped onto the scene last year as a freshman and left an indelible mark as a midfielder with a serious presence. Now a sophomore, Romano continues to be a factor for the Eagles. As a first line midfielder, Romano has the ability to accelerate and immediately create separation from up top. If the slide is late, the shot is coming and with some serious pace. Earlier this year, Romano threw up 5 goals against a Plano West squad that had shocked ESD the year before. Kid knows how to make a statement. Against their primary Southwest Preparatory Conference rival, St. Marks, just a couple of weeks ago, Romano led all scorers with a 2g, 2a effort to help ESD to their first win against the Lions in 8 tries. A true sign of a great player is the ability to make everyone around you better. After being late on Romano's initial dodges, St. Marks decided to send the slide early. Romano made the requisite adjustments, distributing and getting his teammates involved. Only a sophomore, Romano certainly has room to grow. Nevertheless, right now he is one of the most athletic players in the league. It will be fun to see him continue to develop.

Foster Huggins 2014
Episcopal School of Dallas, Texas
Loyola Commit
Position: Defense
Sub Position: On Ball Cover Guy / Speed and Skill
Rating: Legit

Down low for the Eagles, Foster Huggins draws the #1 against each opposing squad. An explosive and tenacious, on-ball, cover guy, Huggins covers serious ground. Naturally right-handed, Huggins holds his stick with his dominant hand at the bottom matching up with his stick up field on dominant righties. Kid is strong and can definitely hold his own when heavy carriers try and body up. Covering Loftus everyday in practice doesn't hurt either. Not only does Huggins do a good job from a cover stand point, but he is excellent at getting the ball off the carpet and getting it going the other way. Once the ball goes on the ground, it is up and out quickly. ESD enjoys pushing transition, and Huggins gets the ball where it needs to go. If necessary, Foster has no qualms bringing the ball down the field and distributing. Huggins is smart, plays hard, and competes at a high level. He will be a solid contributor at the next level.
