Are you serious? Many lacrosse players play football in the fall, but lacrosse is their main sport and that's what may be key in getting into the college they want to attend. When 9/1 hit and a school called and asked you to visit, then answer couldn't be "Hey, I'm playing football until December, but please hold me a spot until I can come visit". Seriously?!? It's not about how much scholarship money he's getting. It's about losing his spot at he school he covets. WOW. just WOW. Shame on you

I just went through this with my son. He was a top recruit and 9/1 was deluge of calls and emails. 5 visits crammed into one month was a bit much. 8/1 makes perfect sense to me - no need to miss school, practices, etc. if you can visit in August.

Shame on you! It's your dream, not his. Stop trying to make yourself believe something different. You forced him to miss football to pursue your dream.

I am not the dad, but think I know who it may be. And if it isn't him then there are a few in his shoes. And btw pursuing football is the dads dream, taking the season off was the sons idea. Although he may have helped the team it would have also been decisive to the football team. (And skipping football was probably a great move)

As much as I like the new waiting game, I don't. Thought this was America, think the whole NCAA needs to be revamped or done away with. Think letters of intents need to be reworked. Title 9 needs to be revamped, wonder why SEC schools don't have lax.

I don't like one and done rule in college, why can't Zion go straight to pros nor do I like Ncaa football players having to wait, Trevor should be a Giant..

So much for a free country. Collusion at its best I say!!!

Having a sophmore going through this, it is pretty frustrating. He has no idea where he stands from any of the prospect camps we have been to, a few of the schools where he wants to check out have camps the week of finals, so that is out, and football is an option for him to pursue in college (according to his football coach), so he doesn't know what to do this fall. The team will need him, so he won't be able to miss and they are looking to repeat as champs this season. Let us know where we stand so we can move on, or at least work on the aspects of the game to have a shot. I don't have a problem with signing being Sept 1, but the no communication is BS

I'm out of this date rang but I thought a coach at a camp can give you feedback. Why else would you go, sure to be seen and see if you like the Coach, but instruction and critiques to work on your game. I Am okay if coach doesn't say we will be keeping an eye on you. But at the same time he should be able to do just that. But, The idea that is lost on many is a camp should be used to play, learn, get better and get feedback.

If h likes you there are many ways for you to know

By the letter of the rules they are not allowed to communicate more than general interest to the kids Club or HS coach. The coaches are not supposed to offer their evaluation of the player to the club or HS coach and can only ask for the club or HS coache's opinion on player. It's terrible. I agree that if they don't want to allow offers until 9/1 that's fine. But he lack of communication is terrible and forces families to blindly spend money all summer attending camps that your son may be interested in but you have no idea if it's reciprocated.

Shame on you for making your son miss the football season for recruiting. How much scholarship money are you intending him getting? Sorry, but YOU are at fault here. No way you should have forced your son to skip football. I blame this on parent no one else. You could have very easily emailed the coaches and explained the issue as so many have before. Is your son on any radars? If he is the coaches are all very understanding about it. WOW, just WOW.

This would be great for the players if this indeed gets passed. It would allow parents/players to scale where they stand but I can see how this could hurt club programs. But at the end of the day, it's what is best for the parents. Great post and good to see others using this platform in a positive way.


Having a current junior who had to miss Football and more importantly school because the coaches want the recruits to come when school is in session. I think changing the date to 8/1 would be great. Would be able to visit schools that are interested and would not have to miss school.[/quote

Shame on you for making your son miss the football season for recruiting. How much scholarship money are you intending him getting? Sorry, but YOU are at fault here. No way you should have forced your son to skip football. I blame this on parent no one else. You could have very easily emailed the coaches and explained the issue as so many have before. Is your son on any radars? If he is the coaches are all very understanding about it. WOW, just WOW.


Are you serious? Many lacrosse players play football in the fall, but lacrosse is their main sport and that's what may be key in getting into the college they want to attend. When 9/1 hit and a school called and asked you to visit, then answer couldn't be "Hey, I'm playing football until December, but please hold me a spot until I can come visit". Seriously?!? It's not about how much scholarship money he's getting. It's about losing his spot at he school he covets. WOW. just WOW. Shame on you


Shame on you! It's your dream, not his. Stop trying to make yourself believe something different. You forced him to miss football to pursue your dream.



What I meant was my son missed a few practices and days of school because of recruiting visits. He played football, he loves the sport. Would help if the date of 8/01 instead of 9/01 for contact.

Polar Bear League at Carey finished yesterday. Some good, spirited, winter lax to keep the boys busy.

Doubt that was from either team. Much respect for each other on those two sidelines. Just like what was said about Carey's Polar Bear League, a good opportunity to get the sticks in the boys hands and play. Thanks to all the teams that came out to play. Lets hope the weather gods stay with us during the spring.

A few things get me fired up. The way the states predetermine the sectional pairings for States. and the way Suffolk sets its regular season schedule.

States - The website below is not as updated as I would like, but some stats to highlight the travesty that Sect 8 and Sect 11 (long Island) can't play for a state title. if there is a more recent matrix please provide. Why would you never have the 2 best sections play each other for a championship is beyond me.

http://newyorksportswriters.org/reference/boys_lax_playoffs_sec_totals.shtml

SHAME ON YOU NYSPHSAA, THE PROOF IS IN THE STATS, YOU STILL SAY DISTANCE COST AND CONVENIENCE IS THE DRIVING FACTOR FOR SECTIONAL PAIRINGS, I SAY ITS YOUR SHEER LAZINESS TO CHANGE AS THE MAIN FACTOR. WHY NOT DO SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE IN YOUR AUGUST POSH/VACATION MEETINGS INSTEAD OF GAMBLING ON SOMETHING DIFFERENT. It seems like the only cost considerations and conveniences were found on the upstate sections. Saddle up boys you need to go Upstate to go win. Now don't get me wrong, I love they have to travel it is an invaluable experience onto itself, but imagine a Sect 8 vs Sect 11 state final on LI. There is arguably no better divisional sports rivalry in the country. Everybody but Chaminade and St. Anthony's would love that!

I know each year teams are different and you boys up in Victor and Westchester have done incredible things while in A/B/C but at the same time hotbeds are hot beds and it isnt fair that arguably the two best sections in the state will never play each other for the championship.


That rolls into my next rant, why cant Sect 11 take a look at the home and away advantages teams get over others. There is no way in heck a team should be given home field advantage in multiple years over any specific team, NO MATTER what your rank is. Yes, Sect XI has a matrix which allows them to enter the teams by ranking and the predetermined schedule pops out. But why cant the human element come into play and adjust for things like home and away. The teams have to play that day, and most of the times if varsity is playing at one school JV is at the other , so field usage isnt the issue. Whats the deal, It cant just be sheer laziness on Sect XI, can it.

You could have a senior class that has never had a home game in their entire time in high School. Wonder what the record is for the home team, pretty good huh, sure is they have "Home Field" advantage. HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE OR ACCEPTABLE to never have a home game against a rival. More pathetic when it involves top 10 teams!
