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

Sacred Heart Prep

The Gators are coached by two former Cavaliers, Joe Thompson and Johnny Christmas, who clearly have instilled in their team the desire and grit necessary to succeed in lacrosse. Sacred Heart Prep follows the lead of do everything midfielder Sean Mayle and plays hard-nosed scrappy lacrosse.

#7 Sean Mayle, 2014
Sacred Heart Prep, California
Position: Midfield
Sub-Position: Two-Way / Wing/ Off-Ball/ Face Off
College Commitment: Denver
Rating: Legit

Sean is the man! There is no other way to say it. He does more for his team than any other player I saw in the Jerry Langkammerer tournament, and I would bet he does as much for his team as anyone in the country. Sean is an impressive athlete with superior speed, a quick change of direction, and a powerful frame. His skills are on par with his athleticism: right and left hands are indistinguishable from each other, he shoots hard and accurately on the run or with time and room, he is a great low angle finisher, and he faces off successfully with multiple moves. Despite his skill and athleticism, Sean's most notable asset is his relentless work ethic. The kid plays hard from whistle to whistle and never comes off the field. By the end of the game Sean's number is barely visible through the grass stains on his uniform. When the best player on a team is also the hardest working you have something special.

#1 Andrew Daschbach, 2016
Sacred Heart Prep, California
Position: Midfield
Sub-Position: Two-Way/ Wing
College-Commitment
Rating: Legit

Andrew is going to be a monster. He is only a freshman but is already built like a man. Andrew is a strong dodger, whether down hill from up top or working from the wing to get his topside move. After Andrew runs by his defender he can finish on the run.

#17 Noah Kawasaki, 2014
Sacred Heart Prep, California
Position: Attack
Sub-Position: X/ Off-Ball
College Commitment:
Rating: Watch List

Noah is a high-quality finisher both in tight and with time and room. His time and room shot is a text-book high to low shot buried in the far corner. When it comes to finishing inside Noah works hard to get angle and is not afraid to sell out and dive. He drives hard from behind, has a quick change of direction, and runs through checks. Noah is also effective with out the ball and often finds himself open with a good look at the goal.

#23 Brian White, 2014
Sacred Heart Prep, California
Position: Midfielder
Sub-Position: Wing
College Commitment
Rating: Watch List

Brian is a shifty dodger who can run by his man with ease. Once he beats his man he is ready to unload a powerful time and room shot, find the slide and split the double, or hit the open man with a feed.

#9 Frankie Hattler, 2014
Sacred Heart Prep
Position: Attack
Sub-Position: Wing
College Commitment
Rating: Watch List

Frankie is a dodger who looks to create offense for himself from behind with his strong topside move. He has a big time and room shot that he blows by goalies. When it comes to inside finishing Frankie has room for improvement; he is great at getting to the goal, not so great at burying the shot when he is there.

Marin Catholic

Marin Catholic is an athletic lacrosse team that likes to push the ball in transition, play aggressive defense, and create offense with the team's two workhorse midfielders. I had the opportunity to watch them play several times during the Jerry Langkammerer Invitational tournament at St. Ignatius and then again against San Rafael.

#4 Chris Hill, 2014
Marin Catholic, California
Position: Midfield
Sub-Position: Two-way mid, Wing
College Commitment: Navy
Rating: Player

Heading into the JLI Chris was hampered by a leg injury which limited his playing time in the first two games. Despite not being full strength Chris was still productive. In the third game, when he was finally healthy, Chris showed himself to be a strong athlete. He has good speed, a quick change of direction, and a hard accurate shot on the run. Chris can run by defenders from multiple positions in the offensive zone (up top, wings, and from X) as well as catch and shoot with time and room.
