I can’t comment on how he played because I didn’t see him by when my son played them I heard parents discussing him quitting because they lost every game. Funny though the first game without him the team won. They jumped on us early. I guess the primadonna couldn’t take the heat. They must have moved a kid to their team because a new pole arrived at halftime. He was very good.

Yes he did leave and our sons team won the first game after he left In our next game kids played great again but lost almost single handedly to Spalina Hope for the kids sake he left for the right reason Overall fun few days with many great players and yes few of boys had a game last night but most stayed

Overall a solid event - teaming up by commitment was a great way for players to play alongside future teammates. Lots of talent on the field, as much on display during the drills as during the games. Hero ball got a little out of control in last 1-2 games, as uncommitted kids try to force their ways on to some tape - not the most enjoyable to watch but not unlike any other showcase out there.

As far as trying to tear down some of these kids individually - that is just nauseating, and I suspect a way to declare the "rankings a joke" because someone's kid is not ranked as highly as daddy wants. My son has played for years against and occasionally alongside all three players torn down in this post - all there are top talents. MD bound goalie and D and among top in class at position. The LIDS kid gets so much grief on this board and I can't imaging how small of a person goes that route. Maybe he is not at top 3 at position, but he can put the ball in the net and plays high IQ off ball when sharing the field with the almost otherworldly top 3 guys.

Of course college coaches don't care about the rankings. It would be gross incompetence to rely on them rather than their own work. But to come to a board to snark on 16-17 year old kids to make you feel better about your own kid's ranking or lack thereof says a lot more about the poster than the players referenced.

Good post. Here's my take on the event. Solid (a strong B grade) but not as much depth as the Juniors Open (which was an A). More Showcase "me ball" vs the Open where everyone was told on day one, you're being evaluated on your ability to be a "we" guy. Also this Showcase pre-commitment vs post for many of the top players. In other words, not every 4 or 5 star is going to push the accelerator to the floor every tournament after he's committed. That's just human nature and reality.

I agree. A lot of talent but also a lot of hero ball. At some times hard to watch.

Do forums like this exist for revenue sports - football, baseball, basketball? If so, do parents of real athletes in those sports act like the parents in this forum? I can’t imagine they do.

No, stakes are much higher and talent is evaluated at a different level. Parents let the talent talk. Athletes in money sports look like stakes horses instead of the $ 1000 claimers playing lacrosse.

You’re wrong and quite bitter if I must say. Slainte was formed for the 2022 players playing UP on 2021 Black because they will graduate. The rest of the team was filled with players who were invited. Move on

Here is what I will tell you and it was obvious this weekend The Hawks are much better without the BL player. Ball movement was better no selfish dodging or erratic shooting and team lacrosse was great as was evenly distributed playing time. Just didnt get an Inside Lacrosse writeup for our team

The above has got to be someone trolling the Hawks. No Hawks' coach or parent could be so notIntelligent as to put up such a post - hopefully. In the unlikely event that the post is for real, how 'bout getting off the BL player's back. I'm sure he didn't walk on the Hawks a couple months ago without invitation.

Crazy posters! The kid is super talented (speed, quickness, shot velocity). The bigger the game, the better he plays. On top of it all, he's a really nice kid: all of his teammates at BL and on the club circuit really like him. Does he try to do too much by himself sometimes, sure. That comes with the territory when you have a ton of talent. Regarding the write up comments, the kid can't help he has a famous dad. He doesn't dictate who gets written about. Give him a break. His coaches (high school, college and club) will refine his game further (yes he has room for improvement as does every high school player) and he (assuming he's not super injury prone) will be a star at the collegiate level.

Definitely agree with most of this unfortunately for him he is very injury prone as he is always hurt the hype he gets is from his dad and is why most feel he is way over hyped . Put blame more on hawks coaches that allow him to be a ball hog as well as him just going on the field whenver he wants instead of waiting for coaches to call midfielders on
