Hawks are one of the “beast” teams in the country. If you knew, what you think you know, you would know that. Get with it Lax know it all.

It never is with teams that cant win them. W's are contagious as are L's. Good Clubs prefer W's.

Every team in Maryland can look at their current roster and guess which one of their best players will try out for Hawks next year, simply based on how many selfies the kid and parents post on social media. Its a groupie affect. Plenty of teams and events to play for outside of your club experience now, but team jumpers follow the hype. Much less hype than it was 3 years ago, just takes those types a little longer to catch up.

You're correct the rankings are skewed towards teams that won more games and strength of schedule.


B.S... It is all political.

Wrong. But now that you mention it, the 2022 91 team from MD was magically added to the softest 3 team bracket! Must be nice?


That is a fact^^^

Do you have any facts to back up your complaint? Rankings provided by IL are very detailed on how they come up with their rankings, maybe I'm wrong, but I just don't understand your reasoning.

Seems to me that the MIAA kids were "rationed" a bit in the 2020 rankings....no more than 2 per team I believe for the teams who had kids on the list. A few uncommitted kids made it in front of a ton of committed ones who were productive starters on high school teams which does seem to scream that teams who played IL events had players who got "the nudge" so to speak. And there doesn't seem to be very much consideration for strength of schedule for some of the kids who made it into the top 100 vs ones who didn't. I've heard tons of folks complain before about kids from the east coast getting all of the props....walk a mile in some of their shoes before you complain. When you live in a hotbed area this is what happens.

Club rankings? Really? Who cares except flat B hammerhead bag daddy-ball line-x truck coach. Clubs exist to make money and sell the dream of D1 glory. They don’t give a rat’s butt about your kid. Only a handful of kids are going to play in college and only a portion of them will ever see meaningful time. The 9th grade holdback phenom is tomorrow’s bench warmer.

I agree this should be moved to a club discussion and not in the HS thread. However, as much as parents want to bash the clubs, the top programs place 12-18 kids a year into college programs. Of the HS teams most of the kids recruited also play for the top clubs. It is very rare that a college player did not play for a top club. Check the commit list of the top clubs, they are not just selling the dream, they appear to be delivering it as well.
