Your unbiased, professional source for lax recruiting.

Our groundbreaking, imitated, but never duplicated Recruiting Rundown, launched in 2009.

Get caught up on the latest news right here, right now by visiting’s groundbreaking, imitated, but never duplicated Lacrosse Insider. It’s the No. 1 source for recruiting news, analysis and objective information in the NY/NJ/CT tristate hotspot and the entire lax galaxy, featuring nationally respected, award-winning multimedia news and sports director, manager, producer and editor Joe Lombardi, the author of the latest edition of “Lacrosse for Dummies.” Access Insider here.


Two years ago, in the fall of 2014, we introduced our LaxLessons Top 100 tristate player rankings.

We did so underscoring the reality that rankings — whether team rankings, player rankings or even restaurant rankings (any type of rankings you can think of, in fact) — are not an exact science. Treating them as if they are is not only unrealistic, but irresponsible and exploitive.

So we unveiled our list in groups of 10 to make up the 100. There was no No. 1 player — or No. 100 for that matter — but 100 players we pinpointed as the best of the best in the four high school classes.

Determinations were made in a fair, unbiased and impartial manner — with the emphasis and spotlight where it belongs: on the players, and not us.

A first indeed when it came to lacrosse player rankings.

Our goal was to initiate a thoughtful discussion and get folks thinking in the months leading into the start of another season of varsity action in the nation’s No. 1 hotspot for the lacrosse, the NY/NJ/CT tristate region.

So we are happy to announce our Tristate Top 100 preseason rankings will be back on our Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section this coming week.

In addition to the Top 100, we will once again also including a large bonus group of players.

If there is a player or players you would like to nominate for Tristate Top 100 consideration, please email us at
