3d Rising - Player Evaluations from 3d Lacrosse, 6/03

#26 Brad Nordstrom, 2014
Brophy Prep
Position: Goalie
Sub-Position: Quick
College Commitment: Fairfield
Rating: Player

Brad is strong goalie who sees the ball well and makes saves using his quickness and athleticism. He throws a great outlet pass. Brad looks to get the ball up and out to his middies quickly and helps create a lot of transition for his team.

#21 Daniel Young-Miller, 2014
Brophy Prep
Position: Midfielder
Sub-Position: Two-way mid
College Commitment:
Rating: Watch List

Daniel is an athletic midfielder with a lightning quick change of direction. He is an old-school two-way midfielder; he plays strong defense, clears the ball, and plays offense where he is a strong down hill dodger from up top. Daniel has an adequate shot on the run but is a much better feeder. That's not say he can not shoot at all. When given time and room opportunities he can heat it up.

#34 Ryan Geller, 2013
Brophy Prep
Position: Defense
Sub-Position: On-Ball/ Cover Guy
College Commitment: Marquette
Rating: Player

Ryan is a big, strong athlete. He handles the ball well and has no problem clearing the ball by himself, either running the ball over or throwing a long accurate outlet pass up field. Ryan moves his feet well and played strong defense, maintaining his topside position against everyone not named Joe Lang.

#24 Ben Cummings, 2014
Brophy Prep
Position: Attack
Sub-Position: Dodger
College Commitment:
Rating: Watch List

Ben is a really athletic kid who has reasonably good skill. He has a quick change of direction and can be an effective dodger when he chooses to be. He is a smooth inside finisher but shoots low to high too often from the outside. Ben's risers are impressive when they find the net; they just do not go in enough.

#19 Robby Leonard, 2013
Brophy Prep
Position: Defense
Sub-Position: On-Ball/ Cover Guy
College Commitment: Arizona State
Rating: Watch List

Robby is another athletic defender stalking the box for the Broncos. He can handle the ball and is not afraid to push in transition. Robby plays solid position defense, moves his feet, and punishes attackman with angry checks. However, like many hard checking young defenseman he can become over extended at times.

Redwood

I had the occasion to see Redwood play three games in early April in San Francisco. The first game was against nationally ranked St. Ignatius, and "the Giants" did not disappoint. In what has to be one of the games of the year in Northern California, Redwood had the lead in the fourth quarter only to lose in OT after allowing a game tying goal with under twenty seconds left.

#4 Patrick Tracy, 2014
Redwood, California
Position: Attack
Sub-Position: X Attackman/ Wing
College Commitment: Brown
Rating: Legit

The first time I ever had the opportunity to watch Pat play was in a heartbreaking one goal loss in OT to St. Ignatius. He only had one goal in the game but was clearly the most important player on the field for either team. Pat is the straw that stirs the drink for the Redwood offense. He is a quick, shifty ankle breaking dodger from behind or the wing and does an awesome job of facing up and attacking his man in space. Pat goes hard to the goal and is ready to make a play after he has run by his man whether it is with a slick feed, a big side arm rip on the run, or a smooth fake and finish. If he learns to use pop outs and fake roll backs more effectively on the corners Pat will be unstoppable.
