Earlier this year, Mike Malave was all set. The standout midfielder from Shoreham-Wading River committed to Bucknell in January. But by the midway point of the year, the situation that once seemed settled became anything but.
There will be no shortage of MLL players at John Jay High School this coming month. Current and former Major League Lacrosse stars Kenny Nims, Matt Madalon, Jeff Bigas and Chris Daniello will be participating in an elite training clinic sponsored by Prime Time Lacrosse.
When James Barlow first started playing lacrosse as a fourth-grader, he hardly could have imagined where it would take him. The senior attackman at Kingswood-Oxford in West Hartford, Conn., has given a verbal commitment to Towson University.
To be the best, you have to play the best. Ossining senior Mike Zavarella knows that as well as anyone. The list of the standout attackmen he has gone up against reads like a who’s who of the top seniors in the nation, including Darien’s Case Matheis and John Jay’s Mike Daniello.
Combine outstanding stick skills with good size and what do you get? An attackman with the necessary ingredient to play at the next level. Meet senior Lewis Thompson from Newtown (Conn.) High School.
The commitments are continuing to roll in at a hot and heavy pace, folks. In the last hour alone, we learned of two major ones.
At 5-foot-7, 145 pounds, Rob Caffrey is usually one of the smallest players on the field. But the Lakeland/Panas attackman has come up big time and again for the Rebels. Last year, the quick and elusive Caffrey registered 70 goals and 33 assists to help the Rebels win the Section 1 Class A championship and [...]
Jake Froccaro is a fundamentally sound player with a great feel for the game. But lax IQ isn’t the main reason the standout from Paul Schreiber High School in Port Washington is the No. 6-ranked rising junior in the nation by Inside Lacrosse. Froccaro is an extremely skilled and talented athlete whose highlight reel is [...]
The commitments continue to roll in, gang. If you checked out our Updated recruiting review and commitment rundown just tonight alone, you learned the college destinations of the following standouts from the Hudson Valley/Long Island/Connecticut region: * Lakeland/Panas high-scoring attackman Rob Caffrey will join Providence College of the newly formed Big East Conference. * St. [...]

If you check our “Updated recruiting review and commitment rundown” each day, you know this. Over the weeknight, we had a couple of major verbals. First, I learned yesterday that attackman/midfielder Jake Froccaro from Paul Schreiber Senior [...]
Quick question, gang. Especially those of you in the Hudson Valley region. Name the Section 1 program that has produced the most Division I recruits the last two years. If you guessed Somers, you are correct. Senior attackman Kieran Donohue became the sixth Tusker player who is or will be continuing his career at the [...]
Lacrosse is spreading from East to West — and from North to South. Case in point. Rollins College, which is located just outside Orlando in Winter Park, Fla., on the shores of Lake Virginia. The Tars are set to start their fourth season as an NCAA Division II program. And some help is on the [...]
Nothing can give a team a lift like a big save. Gabriel Weissmann made plenty of them last season for Horace Greeley, keeping the Quakers in plenty of games. After one more season with Greeley, Weissmann will take his talents to the next level.
Sachem North has been making a lot of noise but on and off the field of late. Last year, the Flaming Arrows started the season by upsetting the nation’s top-ranked team, West Islip. Yesterday, Sachem North’s number of Division I-bound seniors swelled to four with the commitment of defenseman Alex Harris to attend Stony Brook.
