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

#8 Nick Hallmark, 2014
Marin Catholic, California
Position: Midfield
Sub-Position: Two-way mid, face off
College Commitment:
Rating: Player

Nick is a really athletic two-way middie. His fingerprints are all over the game; he faces off, plays stout 1 on 1 defense, clears the ball, creates offense with his dodging, and finishes plays with his shooting. Nick has a big shot with time and room but can also finish on the run or dump the ball to the open man off a dodge. Nick relishes contact and seeks it out both on offense and defense.

#7 Shane Kunst, 2015
Marin Catholic, Marin Catholic
Position: Goalie
Sub-Position: Quick
College Commitment:
Rating: Watch List

Shane is an enigma, or maybe just young. Within the course of a game Shane will make some incredibly athletic saves that show off his absurdly quick hands, then turn around and let in a softy. My theory is that there are some shots too slow for Shane. He is there and back before the ball actually arrives (like an overzealous hitter out ahead of a breaking ball). Because of Shane's athleticism and quick reaction time he makes some game changing one on one saves on the crease. As Shane matures and becomes more consistent (saves and clears) he has the potential to be a big time goalie.

#20 Sawyer Cairns, 2015
Marin Catholic, California
Position: LSM
Sub-Position: On-Ball/ Cover guy, With-ball
College Commitment:
Rating: Player

Sawyer is a kid who plays a lot bigger than his measurables. He has a high lacrosse IQ that allows him to seemingly always be in the right place. Sawyer has impressive straight line speed as well as a quick change of direction that allows him to stay with change of direction moves from up top. When the ball goes to offense Sawyer is comfortable handling the ball and is proficient at creating offense in transition. On one play in the San Rafael game Sawyer picked up the groundball from the wing, carried into the box, and then proceeded to shoot off the crossbar and into the net. Sawyer has a very active stick when the ball is in the air and does an awesome job of getting a piece of anything going across the middle.

#22 Sean O'Keefe, 2016
Marin Catholic, California
Position: Midfielder
Sub-Position: Two-way mid
Rating: Watch List

Sean made me do a double take when I checked his age on the roster. To say that Sean does not look like most freshmen would be a gross understatement. He is a big, fast, athlete with decent skill. Look for Sean to be moving off the Watch List as his skill approaches the level of his athleticism.

#25 Austin Colvin, 2014
Marin Catholic, California
Position: Attack
Sub-Position: Wing Player, X Attackman
College Commitment
Rating: Watch List

Austin is a slick Canadian style dodger who is loath to use his left hand. He dodges hard from X and regularly gets the topside. Austin is adept at finding clever ways to get the ball into the net including diving, one hand wrap arounds, and behind the backs. Feeding generally seems to be an afterthought for Austin. However, he had several good looks and put his teammates in positions where they could catch and finish.

#13 Paul Callahan, 2015
Marin Catholic, California
Position: Defense
Sub-Position: On-Ball/ Cover-guy
College Commitment:
Rating: Watch List

Paul is an intimidating, physical defenseman. Whether it is with his stick, or with his big frame, Paul seems hell bent on the physical destruction of whomever he is covering. Paul moves his feet well to maintain his topside position and throws solid checks onto his attackman's gloves and then leaves them there for a bottom hand lift. Paul has the size and attitude to be a solid defenseman; however, he needs to improve his lacrosse IQ, and his foot speed.
