The last week or so we have been reporting the names of those senior standouts selected to play in the fourth annual Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic on Saturday, June 27 at Towson University.

Those nine are Ian Braddish (West Islip), Connor English (Manhasset), John Fennessy (Yorktown), Jeff Frocarro (Port Washington), Joe Marasco (Somers), Steven Murphy (Floyd), Nick O’Reilly (South Side), John Ranagan (Yorktown) and Matt White (Ridgefield)

Congrats to all. Thanks for posting the complete rosters Joe and great job getting the scoop on this last week.
Impressive list. Just for fun if we had to pick a consensus #1 player who would it be? Perhaps John Greeley? Thoughts?
Good question Laxalot. In terms of complete players I’d have to go with JoJo. Hey that rhymes. In all seriousness I can’t imagine anyone having his combination of stick skills and athleticism.
The best player in the country is Nicholas Galasso. But since he’s a junior I will pick a senior for you. Just so happens to be a UNC recruit as well. I’m talking about midfielder Ian Braddish.
Impossible to pick one. Too many variables. I think Braddish has huge upside @ UNC – fast as lighting and a tall lanky frame that will fill out there but there’s no way to say he’s the best right now. I’d need to see Greeley against better competition – Lafayette has a very easy schedule and he did not play well in the Empire tournament, or at least in the games I saw. I go back to my original comment – impossible to pick 1 player.
Thanks for your unbiased opinion Lion’s Den. Hah.
Braddish is a nice player but when.it comes to all around game the best I’ve seen this year is Frocaro (sp?) From Port.
Frocarro is a hoss beast and will do big things at PTON
Froccaro a perfect fit for Princeton’s controlled offense where faceoffs are key
Bradish I mentioned above
English may be the best pure shooter I have seen @ HS level which fits UVA to a tee
Murphy the best athlete of them all
Biggest upside? Athletism? Fennessy from Town without question. All state football stud picked up a stick 1st time at 14! are u F-ing kidding me? Ask LI all time goal scorer Cohen from Syosset what he thinks after 23 ate him for lunch at last years state semis
Husker – My comments were regarding LI players only (which I thought was obvious).
But you are starting to sound like a parent! 😉
Taz- I dont care what your comments are. I’m just making mine. I’ve never met the young man and i have no kids (that i know of). Towson got a BEAST
Congrats to all these hard working student atheletes! You’ve done all your supporters proud. While I do not know them personally, I’ve seen Fenn a few times and see him as quite a wonderful young man, from a great family.
i second the motion just a great job all around watch them all throughout the years all well deserving congrats.
Yorktown HS graduation is the same day at the Under-Armour game. Ranagan & Fenn will both miss their graduation to attend the game. As neither one of them are my kids, I am curious as to what people think is the better event to attend. I know this is a lax sight but I am hoping y’all will keep it real and think about the boys when answering.
I would go to the game…high school graduation just isn’t that big of a deal compared to this kind of opportunity (seriously graduating high school isn’t too challenging).
