#28 Matt Pinto, 2014
Kent Denver, Colorado
Position: Defense
Sub-Position: LSM/On-Ball Cover-Guy/With Ball
College Commitment:
Rating: Watch List

Matt plays lacrosse with a chip on his shoulder. His is an angry, violent brand of lacrosse that punishes ball carriers with aggressive checks. Matt's background in hockey is evident on the field. He hockey passes ground balls to himself, toe drags passed riding midfielders, and relishes the physical side of the game.

#7 Zander Ellis, 2015
Kent Denver, Colorado
Position: Attack
Sub-Position: Wing Dodger/Off-Ball Catch and Shoot
College Commitment:
Rating: Watch List

Zander is an athletic attackman who gets topside by facing up and attacking his defenseman from the wing or on roll back moves from the wing. He is an accurate time and room shooter and moves intelligently off ball to find open scoring chances. Zander tries to fold the ball inside too often on close shots rather than reach around the goalie to the backside. He has good vision and looks to throw skip passes from his low left wing on man up.

College Commitment:
Rating: Watch List

Marcus is a technically proficient goalie. He is rarely out of position and calmly stays back on his line to make saves. Marcus throws a hard, accurate outlet pass. He is an effective communicator of ball location and slide packages.

Cherry Creek

Anyone playing the Bruins this year was in for an athletic challenge. This team was deep with seniors that dominated the first two midfields. Freshman Henry Adams and Junior Ryan Arthur headlined a talented attack unit. As a team Cherry Creek was extremely efficient shooting the ball.

#28 Dylan Johnson, 2015
Cherry Creek, Colorado
Position: Defense
Sub-Position: On-Ball Take-Away/With Ball
College Commitment: Denver
Rating: Legit

Dylan has fantastic measurables! He is tall, fast, strong, and athletic. Dylan is an aggressive defenseman who likes to pressure all over the field. He pressures ball carriers and pushes hard with the ball in transition. Dylan has breakaway speed in the open field and can be seen pulling away from the pack multiple times a game. Because of his aggressiveness and youth he is prone to making mistakes by overextending; either going over the head and getting beat or carrying too far with the ball and turning it over.

# 42 Henry Adams, 2016
Cherry Creek, Colorado
Position: Attack
Sub-Position: X Attackman/Wing Dodger/Re-Dodger
College Commitment:
Rating: Legit

Remember the name Henry Adams; this kid is the real deal. Henry has the whole package: a lightning quick change of direction, an explosive first step, inside finishing, faking, shooting on the run, and X-ray vision. He throws a shooter's feed and puts his finishers in good situations. Henry does not have tremendous straight line speed but compensates for this by using re-dodging, quick directional changes, and dirty fakes. Henry ended the season with nineteen goals and sixteen assists while shooting fifty-four percent (fifty-four percent as a freshman!).
