How do I get him on the Duke lacrosse team? If he has good grades does that get him on the team?

You keep reclassing until he is RANKED #1 in the grade then SEPT 1 wait for all the calls to pour in.

Absolutely not. I actually laughed at a dad who said his kid was playing up. I had to remind him that his son was my sons classmate before he moved to private school.

Sit in your vehicle and notice the usual group of fathers standing watching practice with their hands in their pockets, mostly wearing a baseball cap to hide their balding dome, along with a hooded sweatshirt. Some of them sport team or H.S. apparel, but the majority of them look like complete As^&%$#! Then when the kids walk off the field, they stare as if a group of hot women are walking by them.

Only Delgado is and always has been on-age on that IL 5-star list. Once the DOB was shared last year for top 10 recruits, it made it clear to all you either holdback (or double holdback) or aren't going to be a top recruit.

So basically you sit in your car watching them watching their kids? Staring at them as if they’re hot women? Kind of the only way you could notice right?

Does it matter if he did? Nothing we can do about it and complaining won't change the prep school system anyway.

Delgado is not a reclass, just a good player who didn't cheat

Curious as to how the re-classes fair in college. Do they consistently stay at a higher level or do they tend to level out and get surpassed. Would love to see the top 100 ranked from HS jr year through college and see how much movement there is. What the average delta in ranking is for holdbacks vs on age.

It seems that way only because there are so many of them. This year the best 3 of the top ranked freshman are on age and killing it. This year it is more difficult as well because there are so many post graduates playing. See, you don’t have to be a cheating lost do great!

The older kids, ones who have been older their entire youth lacrosse career have had huge advantages this whole time. They stand out because physically they are better than their younger teammates, which helps them get pushed through to the good showcases and the top of all these lists and get noticed very early on. It’s not a coincidence that the 22 top 10 IL players had birthdates ranging between 3 birth years some 18 years old. Some of these kids were driving, or had permits, in middle school while the on age 13 year old were just hitting puberty.
I applaud the on age players, because those are the ones who are truly the best players! I imagine a good portion of the 23 class will reclass or PG to get out from under this Covid mess. On my sons travel 23 team, 13 of 19 are reclassing after this summer. The other 6 players are already reclassed.

You can't just throw that out there and not name the team. Based upon the high number already reclassed and the relatively small roster size, this sounds like the team that JS coaches.

Does it matter what team it is? This amount of reclassing is going to be the norm, not the exception.
Did you happen to catch the latest “Top 23” from the NLF list? It’s a 22 Mid who’s already committed to Princeton, who is reclassing to 23 (but still a 22 and still in 11th grade). There will be a ton of reclassing over the next few years.
