3d Rising - Player Evaluations from 3d Lacrosse, 5/28

#4 Matt Emery, 2013
Saint Ignatius Prep, California
Position: Midfield/ Attack
Sub-Position: Two-Way/ Alley Dodger
College Commitment: Virginia
Rating: Legit

Matt is the most impressive athlete on the field in any game, but not the most dominant lacrosse player as he seems content to just be on the field for long stretches. The result is that Matt has not come close to maximizing his potential. At other times Matt decides he wants to be a game changer. One play sticks out in my mind: Matt slid from the crease, flattened the ball carrier, picked up the groundball, raced away from the pack, and roped a shot into the top corner. It was an incredible play! Matt is a match up nightmare for any team: he has a quick first step, a big shot, and vision.

#20 Jack McGovern, 2013
Saint Ignatius Prep, California
Position: Defense
Sub-Position: Cover-Guy/ On-Ball/ With-Ball
College Commitment: Holy Cross
Rating: Legit

Jack is a fast, athletic defenseman. He is aggressive in all aspects of his game: on-ball defense, groundballs, and clearing/ transition. Jack moves his feet well and maintains topside position which allows him to throw strong disruptive checks without losing position He handles the ball and uses his speed to run by riding attackman/ middies in transition to create scoring chances for himself and team mates.

#10 Chad Bell, 2013
Saint Ignatius Prep, California
Position: Midfield
Sub-Position: Two-Way/ Wing
College Commitment: Boston University
Rating: Player

Chad is a shooter. Whether it is on the run or with time and room he is capable of unloading a hard accurate shot. Chad has a lightning quick first step and the straight line speed to accelerate past defenders off his move. He moves intelligently off the ball to find space and as a result finds himself with good looks at the goal.

#19 Peter Alimam, 2015
Saint Ignatius Prep, California
Position: Midfield
Sub-Position: Two-Way/ Alley-Dodger/ Face-Off
College Commitment:
Rating: Legit

Peter might only be a sophomore but he does not take a backseat to anyone on this loaded SI team. He is an athlete who wears many hats. Peter is an effective face-off man, has a big time and room shot, and can create off the dodge for himself or others. When the opportunities are there Peter is ready to throw timely and accurate skip passes.

#14 Marcus Holzberg, 2013
Saint Ignatius Prep, California
Position: Midfeild/ Attack
Sub-Position: Off-Ball
College Commitment:
Rating: Watch List

Marcus is listed as an attackman but was used as a midfielder when I saw him play. He has a big shot with time and room, and likes to rip it side arm high. Marcus moves effectively off ball and sets himself to score by having his feet and body turned ready to unload when he catches the feed.

#22 Riley Burke, 2013
Saint Ignatius Prep, California
Position: Defense
Sub-Position: On-Ball Cover-Guy/ Off-Ball
College Commitment: Colby
Rating: Watch List

Riley is not big by defenseman standards. However, what he is missing in size he makes up for in speed, quickness, savvy, and stick skill. Riley moves his feet well and plays excellent position defense.

#8 Harris Moore, 2013
Saint Ignatius Prep, California
Position: Midfield
Sub-Position: Alley Dodger/ Two-Way
College Commitment: Washington and Lee
Rating: Watch List

Harris must be a scary sight for defensive midfielders when he gets a head of steam from up top. He is a big physical presence on the lacrosse field. Harris dodges hard down the alley and creates good opportunities for himself to score. However, he needs to improve his decision making and reduce his turnovers.
