Brandon Gamblin enjoyed a prolific scoring performance at this past summer’s Empire State Games.
The UMass-bound midfielder finished the tournament with 17 goals in six games as Long Island won its fifth straight gold medal.
Gamblin should also have a huge impact this coming varsity season.
He’s now a member of the Sachem North Flaming Arrows after transferring from Hicksville.
Since Sachem North was the lone team to beat West Islip last season, and Gamblin’s arrival gives the Flaming Arrows 10 college commits, there are big expectations for this season.
Chris Kieser provides an interesting and information breakdown of Class A in Suffolk for Inside Lacrosse today. You can check it out here.
You may be surprised how he picks as the No. 1 team in the preseason, especially considering West Islip has won four state titles the last five years.
Then again, given the circumstances, maybe you won’t.
