Lake Mary High School (FL)

Florida Crabs

The Benjamin School (FL)

Creator's Game

Really excelled in a defensive role as a freshman at Benjamin helping lead the Bucs to a State Final appearance in 2022. Also has some offensive ability; although we love the thought of him as a college SSDM, he has great athleticism and wouldn't be suprised to see him blossom into a very capable 2-way middie at the next level.


Extra Points: Multi-Sport Athlete

Plays Varsity Soccer


 

Tucker Chappell

Defenseman

Episcopal School of Jacksonville (FL)

Baltimore Crabs

True Florida

Florida Crabs

FC Crush

St. John Paul II Academy (FL)

Ponte Vedra High School (FL)

Florida LC Black

Florida Crabs

PVAA Jaws

Has become a presence down low in defensive sets where he uses his size and athleticism to deny looks from the inside. Seemed to mature before our eyes during the summer of 2022, haven't seen him too much since, but we are sure he is worth taking a look at. Hoping to cross paths with this prospect sometime this autumn to see how his progression is coming along.

 

Jackson Christ

Midfield

Jupiter High School (FL)

True Florida

WLTW

FCA


Moved to Jupiter from Omaha, NE in the 6th grade when he was introduced to lacrosse. You wouldn't know he has only been playing lacrosse for 5 years unless someone told you. Complete grinder, constant effort, never seems to be out of position which makes him a strong competitor. DSLR especially likes him on the defensive side of the ball, but the 2-way middie also finds a way to be quite productive offensively as well.

St. Thomas Aquinas High School (FL)

American Heritage Schools Plantation (FL) Laxachusetts Black

Team Carolina


Standing at 6'5" the righty has all the tools to be a real difference maker on the next level. We haven't caught him in awhile now but saw that Inside Lacrosse named him a Standout Player at the 2023 Prime Time Summer Invitational so we trust that the progression is there.


 

Luke Fenderson

The righty is very elusive using his quickness to get into prime scoring areas and his shiftiness to get strong looks on the cage.

Evan Finkle

Attack/Midfield

American Heritage Schools Delray (FL)

North Broward Preparatory School (FL)

True National

True Florida

Fury LC

Casey Powell World Lacrosse Foundation


Have always enjoyed watching this kid dodge through defenders. He has a way of coming out of his rolls with his head up looking for cutters. His heavy perimeter shot also helps free up space down low where he enjoys rolling underneath defenders for closer looks. Uses good angles to find soft spots in the defense when attacking the cage. A strong competitor who will wear you down with his resiliency. Never takes a play off, especially aggressive on the ride.


Extra Points:

Dual-Sport Athlete

Plays Varsity Basketball


 

Elias Franks

Montgomery Bell Academy (TN) No Excuse Lacrosse


Muscles his way to winning face-offs with a nice low approach and uses good athleticism in transition after gaining possession.

Jack Frischmann

Midfield/Face-Off

Phillips Andover Academy (MA) Allatoona High School (GA) 3d New England

Thunder Blue

Georgia Tigers Elite

Team South (National All-Star Games)


Good heads up player who uses quick changes of direction to free his hands so he can find the open man or take it to the rack himself. Unpredictable since he uses both hands very well. Can also do damage on face-offs. No doubt he is getting serious attention from college coaches.


 


TJ Goberville

Defense/LSM

Oxbridge Academy (FL) Florida LC

Florida Crabs

Sea Dogs

True Empire Elite

Krakens Sweetlax

Sweetlax Leatherbacks

Boca Jets


Good righty defenseman who uses speed and strength to help prevent offensive players from getting into prime real estate.

His 6'4" frame should fill out nicely when he gets into a college weight training program.

Plays Varsity Basketball at Oxbridge


 

Luke Hobbs

Defense

Topsail High School (NC) Team 91 South

Team 91 Carolina

Braden Houlihan

Attack/Midfield

Marvin Ridge High School (NC) Team 91 South

Team 91 Charlotte

Team Carolina


The 6'5" lefty is a menace to opposing defenses as he will burn you with a strong shot on the run from the outside, but can also use his size effectively when navigating around GLE. Sees the field well and is pretty good at slipping out of doubles. Has the potential to be a big time offensive threat in college.


 

Lincoln Huskey

Midfield/Attack

Boiling Springs High School (SC) Team Eighteen

Southeast Sonics

Sweetlax Riverhawks


Agile and fast lefty who is very shifty with the ball using quick rolls when dodging to shake defenders. Possesses a real nice outside shot, and can handle the physical aspect of working down low. Definitely has what it takes to be a college athlete as you can see the work this kid must put in when you watch him perform.


Extra Points: Dual-Sport Athlete

Starting QB on Varsity Football team at Boiling Springs


 

Alex Juhnke

Defense

Montverde Academy (FL)

Windermere Preparatory School (FL)

Florida Crabs

Lacrosse Club Orlando

Sweetlax Gray

Team Florida (National All-Star Games)


Nicely sized at 6'2" he uses that long wing-span to disrupt passing lanes. Quick feet make his especially tough to dodge against. Good speed and hands when getting it across in transition. Solid, physical defenseman who should be seeing plenty of interest from college coaches.


Extra Points:

Dual-Sport Athlete

Played Varsity Football at WP


 

Sam Juhnke

Goalie

Montverde Academy (FL)

Windermere Preparatory School (FL)

Florida Crabs

Lacrosse Club Orlando

Lucas Kirkman

Attack

Jupiter High School (FL)

True National White

True Florida

LI Express


The righy is an offensive threat who reads the field well and has a good motor. We can see where wrestling and martial arts help to give him strong balance when working around GLE against bigger opponents.

Avid Martial Artist who studies Okinawan art forms


 

Brady Knutson

Midfield/Face-Off/LSM

Myers Park High School (NC) Team 91 South

Very impressive performance at the 2023 Southeast Fall Showcase earning him All-Star honors and a DSLR Top 10 Player Who Impressed nod at the event. Followed it up with another great outing at the Southeast HS Invitational where he even showed some versatility playing pole. The 2-way middie is a real grinder on both ends of the field and should be getting some serious looks by NCAA coaches.


 

Connor Kraemer

Goalie

Wando High School (SC)

Team 91 South

Team 91 Charlotte

Charleston Elite

Sweetlax Carolina

Trilogy Ice

Goaliesmith


Quick hands help him to make difficult saves with a calm demeanor. Has good field vision and clearing game, developing more consistency as he matures will see him blossom into a fine 'keeper on the next level.


 

Cole Lazzara

Attack

IMG Academy (FL)

Cambridge High School (GA)

Mount Pigsah Christian School (GA) Florida Crabs

Hilltop Lax

Thunder

Team South (National All-Star Games)


Got on our radar a bit late but after getting a few looks on him we really like the way the attackman works around GLE and goes to the cage from in tight. Unpredictable since he uses both hands very well. Yearning to see more, but we've seen enough to know this kid is going to get some offers to play at the next level.


 

Brendan Leonard

Attack

Charlotte Catholic High School (NC) Team 91 South

Team 91 Charlotte

Team Carolina


Another DSLR Player Who Impressed at the 2023 Southeast Fall Showcase, the righty has shown that he is capable of finishing in a variety of different ways. Seems to be equally effective working as a dodger or being an off-ball threat.


Extra Points:

86 point Sophomore season at Charlotte Catholic

41 goal Freshman season at Charlotte Catholic


 

Anthony Long

Midfield

Weddington High School (NC) Team 91 National

Team 91 South

Team 91 Charlotte

Team South (National All-Star Games)


Gritty 2-way middie tough on both ends of the field. Moves well with the ball and has the ability to fill the back of the net. Was an offensive and defensive beast at the 2023 Southeast Fall Showcase where he was recognized as a DSLR Top 10 Player Who Impressed at the event.


 

Sully McDonogh

Attack

IMG Academy (FL)

Coral Shores High School (FL) Mad Dog NJ

Rebels National

UNRL National


Hard working righty crease attackman from the Keys who works hard off-ball to create scoring chances down low. McDonogh is now attending IMG Academy which should greatly enhance his development. Keep your eye on this one.


Extra Points:

Avid Surfer


 

Elias McLaughlin

Attack

Fellowship Christian School (GA)

Thunder National

Thunder Blue

Team South (National All-Star Games)

Team Jamaica


Has good speed which makes him a serious threat with the ball in his stick, lands bombs from deep commanding respect from the perimeter which frees up a lot of room in tight for him to work. A lot to like about this righty, we don't expect him to remain un-committed very much longer.


Extra Points:

Recorded 71 goals, 41 assists, 112 points at FCS during Sophomore season

Earned U.S. Lacrosse All-American honors, Sophomore season


 

JT Murphy

Midfield/Attack

Cannon School (NC) Team 91 South

Team 91 Charlotte

Carolina Miners

Southern Stars Lacrosse Project


Really like how this kid works off-ball to create offensive opportunities. Uses his speed when dodging to get space to finish. The lefty possesses nice size at 6'3" and we feel he should mature into a good offensive weapon at the college level.


Extra Points: Dual-Sport Athlete

Plays Varsity Soccer at Cannon


 

Caden Paradine

Midfield

Christ School (NC) Hickory High School (NC) Team 91 National

Team 91 South

Team 91 Charlotte

Team South (National All-Star Games)


A real smooth operator, the righty 2-way middie looks like a natural dodger, really good size and speed make him extremely difficult to matchup against. Our assumption was that he would play for his dad who is the HC at Lenoir-Rhyne, but standing at 6'4" with that speed he is likely receiving D1 offers as well. Surely won't be an easy decision.


 

Alexander Ponchock

Attack

The Benjamin School (FL) PrimeTime

Team USA U-18 Select Team


Good dodger and initiator from x, but also works very well off-ball. Will likely be looked upon to be the primary dodger from behind the goal for the Bucs now that Brady Quinn has graduated and moved onto Loyola. Made the Team USA U-18 Select Team showing us that there is still a lot more ceiling left in his game.


Extra Points:

Recorded 40 goal Sophomore season at Benjamin


 

Finley Radding

Attack

The Walker School (GA) 3d Georgia

Florida Crabs

Thunder National

Thunder


The righty is quite a well-rounded player, good perimeter shooter with a strong off-hand demanding a lot of attention from opposing defenses despite his lack of size. Sees the field especially well, can be an off-ball option, but shines with the ball. Has a knack for rolling underneath much bigger defensemen to get close-up crease finishes. Good speed prevents him from taking too much of a pounding. Definitely has the skills to play in college.

 

Landon Rasmus

Midfield/Attack

Jupiter High School (FL) True Florida Black

WLTW

Florida Crabs

Sweetlax Florida

Jupiter Sails

Team 91 Florida


One of the smartest players out there, kid has a real vision on where to go to get the defense out of position. He also sets his teammates up for scoring chances with some truly incredible feeds. Great off-ball player who sets timely picks and frees himself up with intelligent cuts. Has a real flashy stick and can make a goalie look silly 1-on-1 or beat him with a bullet from the perimeter. Undersized but not out-worked, will make a positive impact for the right college program.


 

Harper Richardson

Face-Off

Hoover High School (AL) Thunder

3d Georgia

Silverbacks

Bama Lacrosse United

Vulcan LC


Creates a lot of opportunity when he wins the face-off clean, good speed helps him to makes plays in unsettled situations, while strong stick skills help him get through the wings after grabbing the gb's.


 

Ethan Sands

Face-Off

Saint Andrews School (FL) True National True Florida

Team 91 Florida


Explosive at the face-off dot using a variety of moves and capable of creating unsettled situations with his legs. Battles hard through the scrum when he doesn't pull it clean. Sands is starting to mature into one of the better face-off specialists out of Florida.

Mason Theis

Midfield The Westminster Schools (GA) Thunder National

Thunder Blue

Team South (National All-Star Games)


Very strong 2-way middie on both sides of the ball, hard to beat defensively and skilled creating offense off transition. The righty has a strong off-hand which keeps defenses guessing.

Nick Wallace

Face-Off

NSU University School (FL) Team 24 Lacrosse

Powell Lacrosse

Florida Swashbucklers

Upstate Salt Kings

The Faceoff Academy


Kids is a grinder who puts in the work that keeps expanding his ceiling. Uses several moves to beat his man clean and is good enough to burn you if you sleep on him, but smart enough to value possession and move it along to the attack instead of taking unnecessary chances. Has matured into one of the top '25 Face-Off Specialists in Florida.


 

Logan Weiss

Defense/LSM

Saint Andrews School (FL)

North Broward Preparatory School (FL)

Enjoyed a fabulous Freshman season in 2022 where the speedy righty excelled in the SSDM role. Haven't seen a lot of him in the last year but he appears to have some pretty good hands and we believe he is going to blossom into a dominating 2-way middie (if he hasn't already) on the college level.


Extra Points: Dual-Sport Athlete
