Saint Ignatius Prep

Head coach Chris Packard has built a juggernaut in San Francisco. Saint Ignatius Prep is loaded with upperclassmen talent. They are highly athletic and disciplined group who do not hurt themselves by making mistakes. SI plays great team defense, and even better team offense. Everyone on the field has bought into the system and everyone gets their looks as a result.

#12 Charlie Ford, 2013
Saint Ignatius Prep, California
Position: Defense/ LSM
Sub-Position: On-Ball/ Shutdown/ With-Ball
College Commitment: Georgetown
Rating: Legit

Charlie has to be on the short of best long poles in the country. He is a great athlete, who moves gracefully for a big dude. He throws strong disruptive checks, and never looks out of position whether he is playing LSM or close defense. Charlie handles the ball with confidence and rarely makes bad decisions in the clearing game. I would like to see Charlie be more aggressive with the ball in transition.

#31 Cyrus Scott, 2014
Saint Ignatius Prep, California
Position: Goalie
Sub-Position: Quick
College Commitment: Colgate
Rating: Player

The backstop of Saint Ignatius Prep' defense is junior goalie Cyrus Scott. Cyrus is quick in the goal, does a great job of matching sticks one on one, and makes the saves from distance that he should. He throws and accurate and timely outlet pass, creating transition when it's there or exercising restraint and patience when it's not. Cyrus is big time athlete and a major asset for the defense; SI uses him to shut players so they can double off the end line.

#9 Spencer Evans, 2013
Saint Ignatius Prep, California
Position: Midfield
Sub-Position: Two-Way/ Alley dodger
College Commitment: Harvard
Rating: Player

Spencer is big, fast, athlete who uses all that size and athleticism to dodge down hill and bury the ball in the net. He is a strong alley dodger, with a textbook high to low shot on the run.

#2 Joe Lang, 2014
Saint Ignatius Prep, California
Position: Attack
Sub-Position: Wing/ X Attackman
College-Commitment: Harvard
Rating: Legit

Joe Lang was built to destroy defenses. He is incredibly polished for a high school attackman and possesses a diverse skill set. Joe has a greasy quick change of direction, straight line speed, a laser shot with time and room, and spectacular vision. He is comfortable dodging from anywhere on the field but does most of his work from X or the left wing. Joe has no problem getting his topside move and is devastating with his side arm shot on the run. As one SI athletic trainer told me, and I witnessed for myself, "Joe scores at will."
