John Stucky, 2014
Bullis, Maryland

Boston University Commit
Position: Midfield
Position within Positions: Face Off
Rating: Player

John Stucky will have an immediate impact for Boston U. next season. He is very effective when moving without the ball, often resulting in a quality look. It is also evident that Stucky knows his role well on the offensive end of the field. He possesses a strong repertoire of moves to shake his defender and get to the cage. He is valuable asset at the faceoff X for the Bulldogs as well.



Brad Peters, 2014
DeMatha, Maryland

Brown Commit
Position: Goalie
Position within Positions: Quick
Rating: Legit

Brad Peters is going to be a very powerful net minder in the Ivy League for years to come. It seems that, regardless of his technique, he almost always finds a way to stop the ball. Peters is very quick and constantly sacrifices his body to make saves. As a goal keeper, Brad possesses a clear understanding of his job description, which is to stop the ball at all costs. His vision when clearing is also very solid. He always makes the right decision when moving the ball up field, allowing DeMatha to get back on offense.



Scott Bruner, 2015
Howard, Maryland

Uncommitted
Position: Attack
Position within Positions: Finisher Feeder
Rating: Player

Scott Bruner will be a welcomed asset to any college team he decides to sign up for. He is a very strong and multi-talented player. Scott's most redeeming ability is his left-handed cannon for a shot. When he drives to the cage, he protects his stick very well, leaving nothing for defensive players to check. Bruner has quick feet and moves well without the ball. Scott is also an aggressive rider, always trying to find a way to get the ball back to the Lions on offense.



Andrew Dirks, 2014
Archbishop Spalding, Maryland

Delaware Commit
Position: Goalie
Position within Positions: Big in the net
Rating: Legit

Coach Bear Davis will be sure to miss this stellar net minder as he makes the leap to the Blue Hens. Dirks sets up in a sound and balanced stance, staying on the balls of his feet. He also does a great job after making a save, distributing the ball with the offense in mind at all times. Dirks is constantly pushing the ball up in an attempt to catch his opponent in a numbers game. He moves fluidly from pipe to pipe and frustrates the shooter by covering a lot of the cage.



Brett Malamphy, 2014
Arundel, Maryland

UMBC Commit
Position: Midfield
Position within Positions: Face Off
Rating: Player

Brett Malamphy can beat you at the X in a variety of ways. Whether it is winning it to himself or calmly pushing out to a wing, he simply gets the job done. Malamphy does a great job of winning key face-offs for his team, which allows Arundel to build quick offensive transition. A lot of Brett's wins steal momentum from his opponent and build confidence for his team in the process. The Retrievers are getting a valuable weapon to add to next season's roster.



Jason Ashwood, 2014
Hereford, Maryland

High Point Commit
Position: Attack
Position within Positions: Finisher Feeder
Rating: Legit

The Panthers are getting a very explosive player next season. Ashwood has a great ability to squeeze the ball into spots the goalie thinks are covered. He also possesses a hard and heavy shot. Jason is a fierce asset in the riding game. He has a superior handle and is efficient when driving to the cage, wasting minimal space. Ashwood is a proven winning player, as he is part of three straight Maryland state championships.
