I walked past one of the Hawks players after the game who did much of the scoring, and he looked at least 14 to me.

Would a Hawks parent or somebody who knows the roster care to estimate what percentage of the team is 13 or 14 year old?

Time to face reality......

7th grade and 8th grade are difficult years in club lacrosse for on age players. If your son wants to play for and be a top level player, you need to hold him back short of him being born Sept, Oct, Nov and even then, there are many holdbacks born in that month. Sad statement, but so true.

All the naysayers can come on here and sprew what they want. That is what top level teams and players are now,,majority holdbacks with a few on age in there.
