Rock Canyon

I have seen Rock Canyon play on three separate occasions this season. They are a scrappy team that plays hard until the last whistle and can never be counted out. Against Kent, Rock Canyon scored four unanswered goals in the last four minutes of the game to win by two. Rock Canyon relies heavily on Hopkins bound attackman Wilkins Dismuke.

#9 Wilkins Dismuke, 2013
Rock Canyon, Colorado
Position: Attack
Sub-Position: Wing Player, X Attackman
College Commitment: Johns Hopkins
Rating: Legit

Wilkins is a scorer! He is an incredible time and room shooter who can score from just about anywhere on the field (and shoots like he knows it). He is a smooth no look/low angle finisher, and has a devastating leaner. Wilkins has good size and uses it effectively to get his defender off balance by dodging physically. He also is a proficient face up dodger who looks to dodge inside out from the corner for topside or slip underneath his man and force a slide. Wilkins has a ridiculously slick stick and uses fakes, behind the backs, no looks, and multiple throwing angles to keep the defense guessing. One aspect of his game that really surprised me is Wilkins' speed; he is faster than he looks and separated from the pack several times in the open field. Wilkins is the clear leader of his team both physically with his play, and emotionally with his passion.

#10 Colton Jackson, 2015
Rock Canyon, Colorado
Position: Midfield
Sub-Position: Two-way mid
College Commitment: Denver
Rating: Watch List

Colton is like a diamond freshly pulled from the earth; he has all the innate physical tools to be a great lacrosse player but needs some polish. The most glaring weakness in Jackson's game is something that I think will eventually become a strength: shooting. Jackson is a hard shooter with good technique; he just needs a few more thousand reps to get his accuracy dialed in. Big, fast, athletic, and aggressive are all adjectives that could be used to describe Jackson.
