Lots of behind the scenes and scores to be settled. But it really comes down to a perceived downward spiral in the program and the need to right the ship.

1 season is not a spiral. 1 year is clearing out the previous coaches methods. You need at least 4 years to really say it was the coaching. What's up with GP?

It should be interesting to see whether the Trigg and Giblin moves causes a realignment in the dmv lacrosse universe.

Probably because the league is run by NL and they don't want to financially support a competitor that is hurting their business. Probably also influenced that the other clubs don't think it's necessary to play in a fall league.

Perhaps, as a young team last year Landon took some hits but this year the senior and junior classes are very strong. Prep will still be down and Bullis lost a ton of talent but returns more than Prep.

The more interesting thing is checking out how effective the new coaches will be - Prep, SSSA and St Albans. My prediction is that SSSA maintains a near-top finish, while Prep plummets and St Albans wins more than one IAC game this year.

Love the enthusiasm but SSSA lost 15 seniors and their coach. It's going to take them a few years to reload.

My bet is on Rubeor and Loyola - talent moving in. Spalding & Phipps also making noise with the young guys, but too early too tell.

Very good programs, but they went 1-4 last year against MIAA - A schools combined. ( and not even the best MIAA schools)

I'd include Howard and Westminster on the list as well.

These programs would probabiliy go .500 or below in the MIAA A conference, But I'm pretty sure they would win B/C conference. Speaking of AAco, what happened to St Marys last year, didn't they go 1-15 or something like that the year after winning the A conference?

Trig is the Donald Trump of Lacrosse. Loud, non PC and calls it as he see's it.

In the land of PC and over sensitive metrosexuals that is the DMV...it's just impossible for an old school style Coach like him to stick around.

I'm sure the phones were ringing off the hooks with complaints since he took the job at SJC. Mom's complaining because he wouldn't let them on the field to apply cold compresses to Billy's neck during his water break. I've see it all on these fields and it's absolutely ridiculous. A new generation of entitled sissy boys that can't wipe their own @ss without mommy.

These three dipshi@s at SJC couldn't even remember to drink water and stay hydrated for practice. What's the stupid administration do?

I KNOW!! LETS FIRE THE COACH AND SAVE FACE!!

Typical and pathetic.

As the parent of one of these "[lacrosse]", you have no idea what you are talking about. Running three kids into the ground was not what got him fired. It was just the last straw. And if I were a betting man, I would bet that you are said coach.

There is an obvious line between teaching kids grit, toughness, character, etc. vs. meat head abusive practices on the field.

Not one. Not two. Three. Let that sink in your feeble brain for a second. You think SJC wants that liability? You think other successful coaches have kids riding ambulances to the ER? The answer is an obvious NO.

And obviously it is the kids fault for not hydrating "properly". Perhaps if they were allowed water, they could stay hydrated?

Duhhh!!! You should be doing that anyway you mental [lacrosse].

That's the problem, dumb parents = dumb kids that don't even know what proper hydration is or do know and are irresponsible.

No personal responsibility and all of their problems are always everybody else's fault.

Let me guess...your kid's meal of choice prior to a practice/game is Starbuck's, McDonald's...or a few Doughnuts that some moron parent brings.

DMV moron parents are the real issue here and why Coaches hate dealing with you.

That works if it was one kid. He was trying to be a tough guy and prove some point God only knows what. But he clearly was trying to push the kids and it blew up in his face. You are correct kids are soft these days and he just showed he is a idiot by not seeing this coming. Let me say it again three, 3, III that is how many kids left on their backs. He is a fool.

Re: Boys High School - 10/07/16 07:08 PM

I wasn't there so I don't know what did or what did not occur. I've heard 50 different versions of this story already so I'm skeptical as to what the truth really is. Any story pertaining to BW is usually at a minimum 98% bullsh#t regurgitated by some turd who's kid isn't even affiliated with the club.

I don't see the relevance of 3 at all. It's impossible it wasn't a personal lack of responsibility on the kids part because there couldn't have possibly been 3 dehydrated kids out of 30?...C'mon, give me a break.

2021 tryouts this year...there were four (4) kids that bowed out to the side lines in the first 20 minutes because they were dehydrated. I always find it hard to believe that a kid would show up to a practice, no less a tryout dehydrated...but it happens. To me it's totally unacceptable because as an athlete it's a no brainer and can turn into a serious situation fast. But again, dumb parents = dumb kids. In their defense though...those kids did bow out when they started feeling sick.

If HS kids are too dumb to properly hydrate, too dumb to bow out when they start feeling sick or too dumb to run off and get water when they need it....that's called natural selection.

Kid's migrate to BW because they want to be challenged and want to get better...to get to the next level. That doesn't mean the coach is God!! So even IF Trig didn't call water for everybody at once...if you need a drink you go grab a f#$%ing drink....or did Trig have a gun to their heads too?

Uber liberal, PC and SOFT DMV parents are the underlying issue and they are breeding.

Uber liberal, PC and SOFT DMV parents are the underlying issue and they are breeding.
Some kids, especially younger ones, do not know what proper hydration is and certainly do not know to show up to a likely grueling practice already hydrated. Does BW provide preparation guidelines for practices, post-practice recovery guidelines, etc for parents who are not and have not been athletes? Also, seems like reps are more important at this time of year. Certainly, no amount of conditioning now is going to pay huge dividends in spring. Young players should start conditioning for spring in December and January, so it is strange they have such intense practices now. Another thing, no kid is going to take a break during one of these "practices" if everyone is essentially part of a long-running and constant tryout to make a tournament roster, if they even go to those. One note on the yelling and name-calling etc - it appears most of it is geared toward the parents watching these sessions. "My Johnny is getting the treatment and he can handle it." Parents even chuckle at his name-calling which then feeds on itself. Even the toughest, hard-nosed kid doesn't need all that to motivate himself. Very strange dynamic. Certainly DMV kids are more pampered than most, but coaching youth, high school, college, and even pros has evolved to largely do away with this neanderthal approach that people continue to label as "old school."

Re: Boys High School - 10/07/16 09:26 PM

This is a high school practice, right? I am assuming Trig didn't give up his st johns coaching position because of an incident at a Blackwolf workout. Is it possible that partying the night before could be a contributing factor to these high school boys being dehydrated? (Really, by high school, they are clued in to being hydrated for a workout under normal circumstances). If so, maybe the coach was trying to deter that sort of behavior in the future? I just have not heard of the need for multiple ambulances at a practice before, and it makes me wonder about the real story. This scenario would not surprise me at all.

Please stop trying to justify TRIG's behavior. 3 kids went to the hospital! Where are the DC police on this? Reeks of child abuse

I can confirm 100% the amount of ambulances is true. And there was a report of some kind by a police officer. No telling where it went. If this is so common how many ambulances has anyone seen at any other schools this year or last? Then when we find a story of one ambulance at a local school this year or last then lets ask if it was 3 kids and 3 ambulances that showed up?

Re: Boys High School - 10/11/16 02:31 AM

Do people know whether player hospitalizations are a routine thing during practices run by this coach? It is my understanding that he has been coaching high school teams and club teams, and running camps, for a while. I have heard a lot about his verbal abuse, and I have even heard of a Blackwolf Lacrosse camper vomiting from an intense workout, but this is the first I have heard of the need for ambulances (three!). Why would this have been such an extreme practice? Was it super hot? It was this fall, not summer, right?

It's all hooplaa....trumped up BS. You have to realize who the parents and the kids are in this situation. All liberal, limp wrist whiners that NEVER consider themselves to be part of the problem. It'a always someone else's fault...who can we blame for this.

The kids were not properly hydrated....end of story.

Verbal abuse...lol.

Yeah, if you're an idiot...then you get called an idiot. HS, College, NFL, NBA....and in REAL life too.

If we could lose the PC agenda in America and tell more people the truth....you're an idiot....the country would be in a much better place. All you DMV Billary supporters have a nice Tuesday...Idiots.

It's all hooplaa....trumped up BS. You have to realize who the parents and the kids are in this situation. All liberal, limp wrist whiners that NEVER consider themselves to be part of the problem. It'a always someone else's fault...who can we blame for this.

The kids were not properly hydrated....end of story.

Well you could be correct us DMV people are to soft. But it just shows how much of a IDIOT he is to think he could remove all the softness from these kids in one fall practice. So even if you are correct in your statement of soft idiot 15 to 18 year old kids. He is the bigger IDIOT for not knowing his team. So lets cut the PC BS and call him the IDIOT he is the adult and the super smart expert coach. So he is the IDIOT.

If conditions were so harsh at practice, how did the other players manage to make it through without a water break and without needing medical attention? Were the three affected boys new to sports? Do all the players -- the dehydrated three, as well as the others -- believe the end result, Trig's resignation/firing ( don't know which is accurate) was warranted? Does the team have a new coach?

The point is their are 200 or so high schools in the area on the same day holding fall workouts. How many of them had 3!!!!!!! kids drop. And at a lacrosse power house school do you really think random bums would be at a Lacrosse workout not going to happen.

They had a chance to be competitive with Trig, but that ship sunk. Too many hyper sensitive wimps, non hackers and gender confused parents over there.

Sad but true. Trig would have turned SJC into a powerhouse. SJC parents weren't willing to go the Dark Side. As opposed to DJO.

The point was they play in a elite conference with tons of money behind the teams. You still did not answer the point that no other coach had any kids dropping like your boy did. He is a known jerk and soft kids or not he is and was a ticking time bomb.

Re: Boys High School - 10/12/16 02:07 PM

Those kids dropping was an anomaly for Trig and a very strange one at that. Nobody here will ever know the truth, but I can certainly speculate. More BS than a barnyard.

Regardless of that, all the Trig haters have stated that it wasn't what got him fired. Again, the hyper sensitive wimps, non hackers and gender confused parents were not happy with a non PC coach that spoke the truth and actually held a high standard for his athletes.

These are the same morons who think that their glass jawed kid's are going to play at the D1 level. Through osmosis? It really is comical, how dumb these people are.

So now SJC is back to being a laughing stock and the three cherries who fainted are back playing Xbox in mommy's basement full time. One thing NOBODY has mentioned here and it's no surprise is that the other 98% of that team is totally pissed that their coach got the boot. You know, the kids that don't aspire to mediocrity, take the game seriously and want to play at the highest level in college.

GREAT JOB parents and administrators of SJC!! Even your supreme overlord Hitllary Clinton has more balls than you do.

Looks like SJC took a risk for faster results and it totally backfired. Kinda like your supreme overlord Trump. Lets see how that turns out for the GOP. SJC should have stuck with Horsey, at leaset he's a stand up guy and a good role model for young althetes.

And what did they out him for? Telling the kids to pull their pants up and stop speaking in ebonics?

I feel kind of sorry for the SJ team left without a coach. Aren't the boys pretty upset at the parents for forcing him to leave (if that's what happened), or did they all really dislike this coach? It seems like people -- great players, reasonable parents -- flock to him to play for Blackwolf.

Well they do not mind playing for him at BW the kids go to 3 practices and 2 tournaments and verbal and never show up again.
But kids having to deal with his behavior for 4 years of high school the SH*t show who is TRIG can not be lived with for 4 years. No matter how tough you are raised.

I can buy this. But lots of the general "bad" stuff should have been known before hiring. If the administration knew it, as they should have, why hire him in the first place? Did he get fired for this one practice, or was it more than that? Such a short time as coach there for it to have gotten so bad so fast.

Well when you come in and step on any and everyone you see the first day things can go south really fast. He insulted all the parents the first day he met them. Heck even the hardest college coaches are nice to the parents when they come to meet the kid an parents.

Another moron that has no idea what the F#ck they're talking about.

You @[lacrosse] wipes never quit with the disinformation do you?

That's ALL BW does is practice. They aren't professional tournament attendees like most clubs. It's practice, practice, practice and then hit a few select tournaments.

3 practices? You need to just say no and get your ignorant lips off that crack pipe.

Again, nobody posting this nonsense have kids affiliated with the club. You hear the drivel, but in your travelings...do your own asking around and you will find that any kid who is actually on a BW team or regularly attends clinics loves Trig. The kids that seek out BW all play or aspire to play at a high level and love the fact that non hackers and half steppers that think they are going to just chill and go through the motions are run out on a rail with their ding dong parents in tow.

Yes, even the vast majority of the SJC team loves Trig. Unfortunately, their replacement will be some PC yes man that couldn't lead himself out of his own shorts to take a sh@t.

The owner of Under Armor has put Millions of dollars in to this high school and he pushed for the best coaches. So common sense says for them to fire him in the first 2 months of school he must be a complete nut job. Why would the guy risk firing him this early unless it was clear he had to. These are the only facts you need to know. School got Millions of dollars told to go find best of the best coaches and to win games. They hire Trig and then the fire him 2 months later. The why and how is just not really important. Do you think the school wants more millions? I would say yes and they still fired him after 2 months.

We all know where the best talent migrates to and it's NOT and NEVER will be SJC.

EVERYONE hated him at SJC. Experienced players quit the team rather than deal with him.
Kids leaving BW in droves. No responsible parent will let their kid play for Trig.


Just let it go bro. So your son plays for the Cav's. It is a step up from EKLC, he's having fun with his friends and gets all that cool shwag!!

You keep e-mailing the Coach at Christopher Newport and I'm sure he will get back with you.

OUCH, ripped the scab off there brother.

That's ALL BW does is practice. They aren't professional tournament attendees like most clubs. It's practice, practice, practice and then hit a few select tournaments.

3 practices? You need to just say no and get your ignorant lips off that crack pipe.

Listen, I've played for him for my HS team, and I have tons of friends play for him at Blackwolf. He gets the best out of some kids because he gets them pissed off, but others curl up and really get screwed up from him. His practices are on a completely different level, and he just doesn't know when to let up a bit. He's much more suited to the role he had at SSSA, where he's not in complete control, and a better coach can keep him in check a bit.

SJC is a dump? I guess you haven't been there in a while. Its not the way it was in the 80's or 90's. Facilities are quite nice, better than some colleges have and better than some private schools in the area. I'm sure SJC will find somebody to take over for Trig. He sounds more suited for that ridiculous club of his.

SJC has won conference titles in basketball, tennis, baseball soccer and field hockey in the last 1-2 years. And played in the football championship this season. So not a stretch at all for them to pursue a winning lacrosse program. And they can do it. Maybe not on the Gonzaga/Prep/Landon level. But if Bullis can get this good this fast, SJC can do it.

WCAC has a blue-chip lacrosse program in Gonzaga. DeMatha, Paul VI and SJC can be the next level below.

IAC has blue-chip programs in Landon & Prep (and Bullis this year). SSSA & Episcopal next level below.

Been hearing this same song for YEARS. Spalding has an endless well of "potential" and just a handful of A conference wins EVER.

Zero lacrosse tradition, a crappy location, and much more attractive lacrosse alternatives to the north and south make it tough for me to see how this ever gets turned around. And isn't the coach just marking the days until he can leave Glen Burnie and return to Severn?

Why the 9th grade class ranking? Is this mean McD will dominate for next at least 4 years..maybe more. or ???

Re: Boys High School - 12/21/16 12:58 PM

McDonogh will be good, especially when they recruit players from out of state and that will only increase. Calvert Hall is loaded with talent but I agree, as long as coaches keeping promising recruits varsity spots it will cause dissension. The Spaulding win over the Public state champ further adds to the claim that no public can compete with the MIAA/IAC.

Agree that Calvert Hall potentially has a mess on their hands. Maintaining peace and avoiding dissension will take tremendous effort.

McDonough will be the dominant team in the MIAA going forward. Everyone else is playing for second place.

Gilman will be greatly improved, especially if some of the 9th graders are allowed to play on varsity.

Spalding has won grand total of three A conference games in the past three years and one of these was by forfeit. When you include the forfeit W, they are 3-25 in conference over that period. Historic trajectory from previous years is equally sad.

As a AA County lacrosse fan, I think it is great some of the current dads are enthusiastic about the 2017 and I wish them luck. Pumping the team up on an anonymous message board is fun but let's see that "potential" win a few meaningful games. Spalding dads should come back once they start logging some W's and tell us "I told you so"...

Transfer to where? In many cases, they have been promised $ in addition to playing time. In Baltimore, the only school with open roster spots in 9th grade is BL.

. My my, could this be the bald daddy of the former Crab middie, you know, the one that posts "getting ready to throw the rusty gate", "turn and rip" and los of other such BS. If it is, remember, your kid should be a sophomore but instead he is a freshman and was way in over his head on the varsity football team. Wait for spring, same thing will happen. He is probably a good kid, big for his age but that's it, just big. He seems to be a much better person than his obnoxious father. "Call this the truth".

MIAA teams are loaded with players that should be College Freshman. They clearly have an advantage over public schools with very little should be college Freshman on their roster. That and MIAA pulls kids from anywhere and Public's are restricted to certain areas makes your statement not only this year but probably any year. For any public school to even compete against the top MIAA schools is an huge accomplishment.

It happens occasionally. Hereford beat or tied MCD five years ago when MCD was in the middle of the pack in the MIAA and Hereford was a perennial State Champ. I've seen both Westminster and Severna Park get killed by MCD in early season games. Too much depth in the MIAA. Top talent at top publics could start and sometimes star anywhere.

Do you realize you are telling the MIAA A Champion from the year before last to drop down?

Is that the new standard? Miss the playoffs one year from winning the best conference in the country and you should drop down to B?

Lilly and Phipps will make the over glorified Baltimore schools suck it up again in a the next 3 years. Count on it!

I was just thinking the same thing. St, Mary's won the league in 2014 now you want to drop them to B? Not to mention they don't play the holdback game like the schools up in Baltimore. Get a clue.

St Mary's has a lot of young / new guys. They will be back in the mix following one down year that came after a pretty convincing championship run in 2015. St. Mary's best 2020 is still 14 years old, BTW.

These were my rankings for the 2017 lacrosse season. St Mary's will be a bottem year team this year. The "go back to b conference" was for intended humor, but they will not be "in the mix" this year. They are talented and coach Lilly will take them far.

Long Island:

In the 1980s our A conference team rode the bus up there from Maryland and beatdown two of their teams within a 24 hour period. Got the h out of there after the final whistle.

29 years later drove up there with my daughter's team. They opened a can of MD whoop-[lacrosse] on the run-and-gun, stick-swinging Island girls and won a tournament at Hofstra. Got the h out of there after the final whistle.

You Long Island guys need to get off the MD message board and hit the wall.

That's funny....In the 80's my LI team went down there with Yorktown and West Genesee team and all 3 of us killed MD. They were basically scared to death to play us. They couldn't handle the physical play. Probably why all the reclassing started. Now when my son's team goes down he plays kids 1-2 years older. You MD guys need to face reality. Keep playing down.

I don't know who you played but if you didn't play LB in the 80s you missed the boat. LB pretty much ran the table in the 80s (7 out of 11 SHIPs between 80-90 with 2 runner ups).

Class of 2019 has 49 of the 71 D1 schools with at least one name on the Verbal list. What does this tell us? Is it good or bad news? Several have only 1 to 4 names. A few have 10 or more names. What are everyone's thoughts on this data? How many kids have the rumored none public Verbal not on these lists?

68 of 71 schools in the class of 2018 have at least one Verbal. But more then several only have 4 or 5 names. I would of guessed most schools would be at 11 or 12 names by this date for this class. What are your thoughts on this?

Re: Boys High School - 12/27/16 04:45 PM

Looking at the class of 2017 seems to be all teams have at least one Verbal. the Top 100 kids seem to be mostly at the same schools which makes sense. But lots of schools have at least 1 top 100 ranked kid. The ranking are what they are a guess I get that. Does the college football top 100 list get spread out over more or less teams?

2017 MIAA Results
McD v CHC in the final - both have more talent than they know what to do with. The team that avoids dissension and blow ups in the locker room and with the parents likely wins it all.
Dark horse to win, St Pauls b/c they have the best fogo and the best goalie.
BL, Gilman and Severn play for the 4th spot in the semis but that is as far as they go.
Arguing about who has the best 9th grade class is irrelevant as few, if any, of those kids will play varsity.

There are many, many good players on the public school teams. They just don't have the critical mass to play the best MIAA teams competitively year after year.
Posted By: Anonymous

Re: Boys High School - 12/30/16 12:54 PM

The MIAA schools are allstar teams by design. Comparing them to a Public school is just stupid. Public schools with good feeder rec programs have very good HS programs. These very good HS programs keep the private school kids, hence they maintain dominance. This dominance makes many subpar HS coaches look like heros. Many of the best Harford county kids go private as our rec program is diluted into all the High schools. Just look at the MIAA's as many Harford county kids on them. Example, St. Pauls goalie who is referenced above. Just keeping it real.

nough.

Its not that you arent trying hard enough.It's that if you dont do prefirst/reclassify or both in MIAA, you will generally never play or start.
Only the True gifted players dont do prefirst/reclass and play. But even many of them do.
It is part of the life of a MIAA lacrosse player. Most teams are loaded with them. BL a couple of years ago entire starting lineup had been reclassed or done prefirst. But it wasnt like they had a huge advantage as the other teams had their share of heldback players too.

17 year freshman? That is a joke because it's a myth. Yes there will be some that turn 16 during the school. Plenty who will be 16 during summer. A 17 year 9th graded would be barred from playing sports as a senior. The 16 years are bad enough. No need to exaggerate.

Not as common as some on this site lead you to believe. Thru coaching or knowing the kids I am generally familiar with the birthdays of 12 of the baltimore areas 2020 kids with college commitments. 6 of those were born after 9/1/01. 4 were born in summer of 2001. 2 will turn 16 during their freshman year. So there are plenty of "correct age" kids - even in Maryland that get opportunities.

As for the post about a 2020 kid that turns 17 March, there was a fair amount of negative banter towards a particular Crab player turning 16 last spring. His bday became public due to making the UA team. His bday is 3/01 not 3/00.

This is not to say that hold-backs for sports is not a problem or that it's not higher among certain MIAA schools. Just offering perspective as opposed to exaggeration.

If the McD coach's son - who is a terrific player - did not play on varsity as a freshman, what makes you think those players will make it/play? That team is loaded with excellent upperclassmen.

That is why in the MIAA being held back is a big big plus. Cant compete on age .
And then we have this debate about public vs private in MD. That is a joke. For any public to even compete with private schools here, they should be given a medal.

Your logic makes no sense?? Even by your own knowledge it is common.
I know this is hard for private school parents to understand, but being born in summer and doing prefirst is being HELDBACK from first grade. So 6 out of 12 turn 16 in 9th grade school year.
So with your logic...50% of players are held back. That is more than common. That is 50%. And my experience with MIAA teams is that most starting lineups are more than 50% of heldback players.

And do you think those 6 would make it as on age players in youth lacrosse?? Meaning that they would have to play as the youngest like 99% of players do in their youth. And with that I along with many others can see why parents with exact same age kids are upset. Why cant their children get this special advantage too. Or kids born in Jan, etc who are not starting or playing due to a special advantage of a select few. Youth sports in Lacrosse is at a low moral point with this grade based team concept. Put your head in sand but it is.

Not just a lacrosse issue. Holdbacks are big in basketball and football as well. MD 8th grade football team just won national tournament in FL with over 50% of Team being 15. Cheaters will always find a way to cheat. That's why they are called cheaters. Don't stress. It all levels out by junior year for most kids.

Re: Boys High School - 01/04/17 03:56 PM

I would agree, Severn. This is CHC's year. MCD lost too much on offense: who's going to carry and dodge for them? SP has no D and even less heart, Gilman looks like a middle school team athletically. BL has a weak D and no depth on midfield. Loyola is the sleeper pick: lots of good players but not many great ones. CHC may go undefeated in the A Conference this year.

McD will give CHC all they can handle...Severn has 3 horses, Gilman will finish higher than them. BL lost too much and no D, SP has depth, need help on D, regarding their heart, it comes from the coach...it's his last year, he's been too laid back, maybe he steps it up for his last year. Loyola may surprise

Always thought in the last few years St Paul's had huge potential that was wasted by coaching. There very talented offense was very predictable and easy to defend. I dont think they did anything different in running their offense last few years. That is coaching. I think it was time for coach to go. Either he is tired or burn out. Didnt look like they had any fire at all on team. Frankly the team would be better off with a new coach this year.

CHC will always be held back by Kelly's favoritism and coaching. BK is an awful coach. You could fill this message board with parents who hate that family because they got screwed by the kellys Andy always has McD ready and Gilman has several horses. BL lost too much as did Loyola. It'll show on the field.

I agree that Landon plays very good lacrosse, but bullis will be on top of the IAC this year with GP coming in 2nd

Bullis had a fantastic season in 2016 but graduated a ton of players. GP is still trying to get back to a consistently high level. Landon is due for a great season if the team plays to its potential and could be in the running for #1 end of year ranking.

LOL. The IAC is very down this year. Landon has an excellent team and will win it easily. Bullis lost a ton of seniors and will not be in the mix.

As for Prep, STA and/or SSSA could easily be ahead of them this year.

You know zero about the IAC.

You could find 22 kids there and in a few years of coaching become dominant. Prennial top 10 nationally in basketball and football. They have the athletes, but they reach for the NFL and NBA.

Truth on Kelly. If your not stroking him and on the inside circle then your kid doesn't play regardless of talent. CHC has loaded up and spent the money to bring in big 2020 class. On paper they should win but ask 2020 Crabs about who wins on paper. Don't see CHC in championship.

Tough to be a 2020 playing at CHC or FCAa. They are a talented group but at what cost? Most of the kids on the two teams will never see the field especially if they are on age kids. A lot of politics and not really about the kids and developing them. Seems more about giving the core group playing time together pre UNC.

I don't really know much anyways. And I know that some of the best players come to the "mainland." Severn and St Mary's benifits the most out of this, but the hawks 2020 navy commit lives on the eastern shore but goes to McDonough. I imagine he lives there, as the commute would drive anyone insane

Re: Boys High School - 01/16/17 11:56 PM

Talbot has a strong team. Usually on par with Kent Island. Not always. Worcester Prep very strong too. As far as club.....Kaos U13is good A level. Quiet Storm has a strong HS JV. Dark Horse and Triple Threat usually have a decent team among the many age groups. Eastern Shore teams aren't grade based. Not enough kids over here. Giovanni, McD/Hawks 2020, is a 5 day boarder. He has played for several clubs over here before graduating to Hawks. He is even better on the football field, gets perfect grades and a helluva artist. I have a Looneys 2021 player that played several teams over here too. It's pretty sweet living on this side. I only cross the bridge for lacrosse and the airport.

Hill Academy is indeed a sports academy. They offer hockey or lacrosse and it's located in a suburb of Toronto. 90% of the lacrosse players commute to the school from the greater Toronto area. The other 10% do come from other parts of North America. The boarding students are not their best players, either.

They have 3 lacrosse teams: middle school, junior varsity and varsity. The JV and V are divided based on grade and not ability. The 2019's and 20's are on JV and the 2017's and 18's on V.

The school is very demanding. Past players have gone on to Harvard, Cornell, JHU, UNC, etc. Hill Academy players can be found on many college rosters at every level. It isn't for everyone and the staff is very up front about that. It is intense. Maybe some students only last for one semester for that reason.

As far as recruiting goes my guess is that the reputation of the school speaks for itself and players come to them. How hard does McDonogh, Boys' Latin, Calvert Hall, etc. have to work to recruit players? Probably a similar situation.

Hill school offers quality pre-MIAA season competition to many of the A Conference teams during their spring break swing thru the states. Love to watch them multiple times when they come thru Baltimore in March. Speaking of BL, I'm interested in hearing any "educated" opinions on how coach Brian Farrell's second year will be? Anybody have a read on that team?

I found some online, you didn't specify what age but nonetheless, the lacrosse programs are 7-18, as there is no high school lacrosse there. Also buying stuff will be incredibly expensive due to the shipping cost.

http://alohalax.org/app/index/list/?org=ALOHALAX.ORG

This from what I looked up is the only youth lacrosse organization that I could find. They serve grades K-12 boys and girls. There are a lot of military children from my understanding.

http://hawaiilacrosse.com

This is an adult league, personally if you want to play. They hold a tournement every year that draws attention from MLL players. A lot of them play recreationally in the tournement.

There is no club lacrosse, but Aloha Lax sends a team to the mainland every year.

Hope you have a nice time.

It wasn't exactly a down year, they won a single game the entire year. Severn made it to the final 4 of the MIAA. You guys just pass off severn until they beat St Mary's 17-4 and make it to the final 4. St Mary's has to take 3-4 years to be relevant.

Severn did have a nice season in 2016. I might point out that they were 3-24 in the conference in the three seasons before 2016.

AA county will be fun to watch in 2017. I know St. Mary's and Spalding have improved their teams from 2016. I hope Severn has too.

The bad thing about laxpowr is that they don't give recent wins a higher weight than wins at the beginning of the season. So teams that lost their 1st 3 games show up on the same as teams that lost their last 3 games.

I like the guarded optimism but be careful getting ahead of yourself, young Bear.

Some people said the same sort of thing about a talented BL team a few years ago (and the parents even printed up championship t-shirts ahead of time) and then a very loose eight-loss Loyola team took them down in the MIAA finals.

PVI has had great players the last 5 years but they have not got it done on the field. So hearing they have a great Midfield is Par for the course. Lets see if Coach can get them to play as a team and win big games. I am in the wait and see camp.

I'm pretty sure PVI beat Landon this past fall at Landon in the semis of the East Coash HS Showcase before losing to eventual champion Hill Academy. I realize it was fall ball but still a good measuring stick for both teams...

Hey Paul VI Dad... enough of the shameless promotion of your sons team. Your team has had very good individual players for years, while under performing. I think you need to let the team prove it on the field before declaring them a legit contender. Obviously the experts disagree with you from the results of the IL Regional Poll.

Re: Boys High School - 02/26/17 06:30 AM

Public school practices start this week. Most promising this year for AAco are South River and Severna Park. Last 4 country championships went to these 2 schools, severna park won states in 16, last time SR won states was 14. Annapolis looks promising,but they lost a lot of seniors, nt enough depth. Broadneck could be a serious contender, if they don't choke again in the playoffs. South river won the Maryland indoor lacrosse league this year.

Private schools in AAco:
Severn looks the most promising out of all of the schools. St Mary's is talented, but I don't think they are good enough to garnish a winning season. It'll be hard to bounce back from a 1-15 record last year. Severn made a final 4 run last year, and put themselves in the right position this year to go right back to the final 4. Severn won the Annapolis indoor league, undefeated and student coached during the indoor season. Spaulding has improved... But by how much?

As a committed D1 player in 9th grade I would hope there would be an opportunity to practice with the varsity team. This is where kids elevate their game. A JV squad could lower that overall player trajectory a little.

Spencer was a very good lacrosse player and very good athletic even at 5-10. He would have probably started on varsity even at 5-10 if the three attackman in front of him werent Stanwick, Heacock and Chell. Three D1 starters! He elected to play JV and shine and hone his skills.
So he really wasnt a late bloomer in what people consider it. He was just a outstanding athletic who was a late grower.

MIAA had a late start with tryouts not until 3-27. Most team made final cuts this weekend hence a lot of returning starters only got a run or two. Hard to access a team without knowing what the coach is trying to achieve.

Play on JV or ride the bench on Varsity for a D1 commit. I think the choice is obvious - play. Most of the MIAA schools are stacked with talent - just because you are good Freshman commit it doesn't mean that there are not quality players in 10th-12th grade.

Not exactly close. Some Baltimore teams have some one year holdbacks on their roster, can range anywhere from 2 to about 6, on a total roster of about 22-25 players. Hill Academy players are, for the most part 2 years older than Baltimore teams. Most all of their roster have players that are a one year holdback and now are doing a PG year at Hill. So it is not even close to being equal. I would bet some of their players are 20 years old or close to it.

Re: Boys High School - 03/21/17 05:29 PM

I strongly agree with you! But, whenever someone complains about the holdbacks the most common response is that is does not matter now that they are all in high school! You cannot have it both ways - snowflake! There are many more than 2 - 6 per roster!

Snowflake? Really, snowflake. How old are you, probably 10 or 11 and you are probably a girl talking like that.
I personally don't give a rats a*s if you agree with me or not, your weak pathetic opinion means nothing to me. And for your comment about the number on rosters, you are again wrong, that is about the average number on many club teams, just depends on the team as to the number. How's the weather in Canada?

Re: Boys High School - 03/21/17 09:11 PM

Whoa! I was being sarcastic about the snowflake comment! I was making light of the current in vogue response by the pre-first / holdback defenders. I found it comical that a MIAA parent would call out another team's overage kids. So you are saying age does matter? Please convey that to your cohorts! MD / public school attendee!

There are more than 6 holdbacks on many Baltimore MIAA teams. There might not be 6 playing as HS seniors instead of Freshman in College, but there are many more holdbacks from 9th thru 11th. If you think otherwise your child must have graduated over 5-10 years ago. The new norm and getting stronger is the amount of kids heldback on teams..

So it is not even close to being equal. I would bet some of their players are 20 years old or close to it.


My son is doing a PG year at The Hill Academy this year. Guess what, he turned 18 this past fall. He said there is one player on the team that is 19. Sorry this information doesn't fit into your paradigm. The team is good due to dedicated professional coaching and very driven players, not because the players are older.

Great game tomorrow at Landon: Brunswick (Conn) comes down with 17 D1 commits. Both teams considered top 5 or 10 in country and weather looks great. Kudos to both coaches for scheduling this.

May I ask why your son is doing a PG year? Is it for academics or to further enhance his game? If for academics, I applaud you forgiving your son the opportunity to gain and grow in the academic world. If for game enhancement, will the payback be worth the cost, I know the Hill Academy is expensive. My son is a hs freshman, does ok in school but I wish his grades were at a higher level and if they remain at this level a PG year may help him. He tries hard and is focused on his school work, just takes him a little longer.

The final score was actually Landon 11, Brunswick 6. It was a great game, loaded with talent. The Brunswick goalie did an outstanding job, despite the final score. The Landon FOGO went 18/20, the defense played outstanding, and it was a total team effort.

May I ask why your son is doing a PG year? Is it for academics or to further enhance his game? If for academics, I applaud you forgiving your son the opportunity to gain and grow in the academic world. If for game enhancement, will the payback be worth the cost, I know the Hill Academy is expensive. My son is a hs freshman, does ok in school but I wish his grades were at a higher level and if they remain at this level a PG year may help him. He tries hard and is focused on his school work, just takes him a little longer.


The first thing that the folks at The Hill Academy will tell you is that it is not for everyone. My son is a very good student but he is there to enhance his game. By doing a PG year it made his senior season meaningful for recruiting purposes. It's expensive, probably the equivalent of boarding at McDonogh. But not nearly as expensive as the New England boarding schools or IMG. If you look at it strictly in monetary terms then no, the payback is not worth the cost. I might recover maybe a quarter of the cost with his athletic scholarship. But I knew that ahead of time. Very few will ever recover the amount of money spent on lacrosse.

Again, the school is not for everyone. Several kids that started at the school at the beginning of the year are no longer there. The lacrosse and competition for playing time is intense. Although the vast majority of kids are Canadian, there are a handful of Americans. I believe some attend for a year or two and then head back home with enhanced lacrosse skills to play on their HS teams.
The Hill staff works diligently to place each player in a college program. They know everyone. Check out their website and give the school a call. I would encourage you to explore all your options, though. There are many ways to do an extra year of HS. Your son needs to love lacrosse to consider the school, otherwise your're wasting his, and your, time.
If you want to get an idea of how Hill plays as a team, they have games at Salesianum, LaSalle College Prep and St. Joe's Prep from 3/30-4/1 this week.

55K is for the Hill School in PA which is different than The Hill Academy in Ontario. When you convert to USD it comes out to about 36K. Still, it's not inexpensive!

That's crazy. 200 grand plus for 4 years of high school. Crazy. But like anything else, some people have or make boatloads of money. If it helps the kid athletically and much more important academically and the cost of the school for that family is insignificant, that's great. Good luck to your son.

This is so stupid. I hear the kids saying the cup slows them down. I tell them they are not fast enough if this is the case. Both my boys, Attack and LSM, wear a cup. You, as the parent, should enforce this if the coaches will not.

MCD played Landon in a scrimmage and Bullis in a game. I thought Bullis was too one dimensionally offensively. Landon seemed to have more offensive depth, a more physical D and a better FOGO.

Despite constant hype from optimistic dads, Spalding is barely hanging on in the A conference.

Record of 3-24 in the conference in 2014-2015-2016 and one of those wins was by forfeit. No lacrosse tradition, bad location, etc...

Laxpower goes back to 2005 and I see 2 winning seasons overall and 10 losing seasons. It's sad, really.

Is lacrosse the primary reason parents send their kid to private? If yes, they deserve not to get expected return on investment. Anyone who sends their kid to private schools primarily for sports has some reevaluating to do.

Good Counsel will never compete with the big boys. The clubs that the players play for (Maryland Xtreme and Zingos) are not top caliber clubs. Madlax, BLC/DCE, VLC, Blackwolf, Club Blue are where the players are that matter.

The whole Wash Post is way off, they have to pay homage to the publics always do for the readers. PVI would beat every public on the list, and yes Robinson and Saverna Park too.

I'd guess the real top five would be:

Landon
Bullis
Gonzaga
PVI
Prep

But the Post wouldn't ever do that.

Lets start this topic on this page. With the new rule about early contact with kids. Will this decrease or increase the numbers of holdbacks? Will this let us move 3rd to 9th grade lacrosse back to age based not grade based?
How will this rule affect D2 and D3 recruiting?
Posted By: Anonymous

Re: Boys High School - 04/17/17 01:10 PM

I think it will dramatically reduce the reclassing of kids for lacrosse purposes. The verbal commitment is no longer available in the 8th grade - so why do it? Everything will go age based because the motivation for grade based (ability to play the holdback game) just went away as well. Organizations (cough - crabs) that built their team on the holdback scheme better come up with a new trick.

What staff is going to coach up and manage all these studs? Are they bringing in a wave of high level coaches too? I wonder if any parents asked questions like this before committing their kid to life on I-97.

I've seen this movie, know how it ends. I've been hearing almost this exact quote for years re Spalding. Heard it circa 2010 regarding Spalding's 2014 and 2015 classes and again around 2013 regarding Spalding's 2017 and 2018 classes (should be running the show around now, how's that going?). Just last spring the dad of a 2019 was gushing about Spalding stockpiling talent and a New World Order in AA County with Spalding at the top of it.

Please stop talking about potential and show me something on the field. Spalding can start Tuesday night against the Saints. Let's see it.

reclassing & hold backs have been happening long before ER. Crabs were more dominant before grade based teams.

The grade based club ship is going to be tough to turn around. I hope it does but I don't think pushing recruiting to Junior year means it automatically will. My hope that there is less interest in jumping into club at 8/9 years old. Hopefully rec/town lacrosse sees a resurgence. Club lacrosse shouldn't even be a thing until middle school

It could be interesting to see if any of the kids that have been made offers already accept them through intermediaries and then actually announce them. Remember these are rules on timing of communication NOT timing on when a kid can commit. ie a 2021 player from LI announce yesterday he committed to Michigan. One would assume that UM compliance department that would make sure they don't run afoul of NCAA for lacrosse

The IWLCA site says that it is effective immediately and that the NCAA will notify everyone early this week. I don't think it can be immediate if no one is notified.


Quote from Friday "NOTE: The NCAA has confirmed via email that the proposal was passed, effective immediately, meaning all recruiting contact begins September 1st of a prospective student-athlete's junior year. Any recruiting contact with younger PSAs is impermissible under the new rule. An official NCAA interpretation is expected early next week."

Re: Boys High School - 04/17/17 06:45 PM

Re: new rules for recruiting. Grade-based will remain because the college coaches still need to go shopping even if the official commitment and contact happens later. The club coach (and private HS coach) will have all the power as the unofficial communicators. Read between the lines - what is still allowed?

Do you think that if your 2021 goes to a clinic at a college, they will ignore his superior talent or make note/let it be known through unofficial channels that they are interested? It's just creating a log jam in the junior year plus postponing facing the inevitable for some players. Now by the end of the sophomore year, players have to accept that they are D2 or D3 level players. There is going to be more anxiety for the kids who are on the bubble - waiting for the Grade A talent pool to be depleted.

There should be far less de-commitment since kids will have to prove themselves both athletically and academically before they can officially commit.

What will happen to the industry built on evaluating and ranking talent? Or do they become more important to save the college staff time for that very short market window for the top talent?

But to keep it in perspective, BL 2021's are 15 and some close to 16 years old. I know three BL 2021 players and they all transferred to BL to repeat seventh grade. Those three should be 2020's and are 15 or will turn 15 by early summer, few are close to 16. This is BL remember, the leader in HS holdbacks.

Thanks for keeping it in perspective. Not sure what the heck that had to do with which 2021 class is better. There are 9 Crabs 2021 players on BLs plus a few other very good players. I highly doubt Spaulding comes close to that but who knows.

Spalding has been saying they are great for years with absolutely nothing to show for it. They start 8 seniors this year and aren't going to win a conference game. The 2017 class has maybe 2 or 3 miaa wins over the past four seasons. Every year same song.. they claim this is our year and we all know how it always ends...
The "amazing" 2021 class is a group of kids who think they are better then they are from a club team that has lost as many games as they have won the past two years. Their parents and spalding coaches have been telling them they are amazing... same ending to that old song is coming once again. For anyone to say they could win a championship let alone two in a row has never seen miaa lacrosse. The only team from AA county to ever win it is St Mary's a couple times and I'm not sure if Spalding has ever even made the playoffs and Severn has had a couple nice runs including last year and likely this year but far more 0/1/2 win conference seasons.

Parents are going to learn that at some point the kids need coaching to develop and win games so either their babies aren't that good or the coaches aren't developing them but something is very wrong at spalding.

Unless you have a full team of on age Athletic superstars ..you cant beat the Senior laden ( Juniors held back) and College Freshman ( seniors held back) of the top teams in MIAA.. The McD, BL, St P have to much talent along with these older players.

Unless you have a full team of on age Athletic superstars ..you cant beat the Senior laden ( Juniors held back) and College Freshman ( seniors held back) of the top teams in MIAA.. The McD, BL, St P have to much talent along with these older players.


What's next, holdback argument for college lacrosse. Weak.

Where do folks get information? Doesn't make sense to be a 16 year old on BL 21 class....would not be eligible to play senior year if that was the case. 2021 Class kids are born 2002-2003 or later. And your comparing Spalding vs BL? Come on...The previous posters said plenty on that comparison.

Actually the stupid one is you. Spalding historically doesnt have near the talent as the Northern Balt teams do,nor does it have near the older players that they do. Spalding is 9-12 without any private schools nearby who do the prefist and reclass thing. BL, McD, Loyo,CH,Gilman all are close to each other. BL.McD.Gilman.Friends.Calvert School all do prefirst grade along with the some MIAA schools doing the reclass thing at 8th grade...You have you head in sand if you dont think this helps out MIAA HS teams in the that area.

Maybe Spalding is getting better talent now. But it will still need to field older teams to be consistently competitive. Not always as occasionally younger guys do win. So maybe the Stupid ignorant jealous one is you..who wants to act like being older makes NO difference.

Only someone stupid would pick a team of talented HS juniors and HS Seniors over a team of talented College Freshman and HS seniors.
You want to make it a holdback issue when it is a simple case of talented older kids having a better chance of winning.

Are you seriously talking about holdbacks in HS? First off, BL only starts 3 or 4 seniors. And other than the FOGO, they aren't their top players. HS is a four year grouping of grades. Now that's not fair either? Good grief

Still laden with holdbacks, but a equal playing field within the MIAA and IAC.

The fact that Spalding and St. Mary's can even compete in the MIAA with all the prefirst/reclassed kids is a miracle. Hopefully the NCAA recruiting rule change will put an end to the 8th grade repeat/transfer nonsense that is so prevelant right now. Gilman has a 17 year old freshman on their varsity squad. 17 in the 9th grade!

Arguing about hold backs in a league with prefirst in most of the curriculums is really pointless. Majority did prefirst, minority held back later, even less did neither. Stupid, weak argument.

Correct. And this was the MIAA schools secret among most people until the youth grade based lacrosse leagues started. No one knew or cared outside of MIAA schools about prefirst/reclass . It only effected school teams playing each other in Middle and High school . Even the Crabs who were loaded with private school kids had an age based U13 and U15 team back then.

But once HOCO decided to have a youth grade base league. Everyone in the lacrosse community understands it now and most besides the apologists think it is wrong in youth sports.

As always the apologists come out with their usual strawmen or excuses.The only horror is in your mind that these select kids will have to play at their age grouping during their youth. No one knew or even cared about the prefist mentality of Private schools. And no one cares even now as it pertains to private schools. It is a good thing for private schools as curriculum is very strong. And Privates dont want to spend extra time or extra resources constantly getting kids ( majority boys) up to speed.
But how did that become an excuse to let these select kids get an advantage in YOUTH lacrosse. Not private school lacrosse..but Youth lacrosse for everyone?? Apologize away...

This is a HS forum, not youth. Your argument for youth, though, still should be with the league and not the players/families. Sounds better to blame apologists, strawmen, whatever you want to label folks, but this is a rules issue. A parent of a youth in a particular grade is going to check that grade on the registration form, and they are not compelled to add plus one because their kid is in a different curriculum than a public school kid. No, they aren't select, they are just human. The parent of a 4th grader is not going to check 5th grade to make you happy. Some that know the game will play their kid up, because sure, you really want to play as high as possible to get the best competition, but most ding dong parents are just there to drop off and pick up have no idea what we are even talking about in this argument, so they just simply fill out the form to the best of their knowledge. It is a rules issue. But remember, if you were to win a rules argument, youth age brackets are typically in 2 year increments, which on average is greater than the private vs. public (what you call holdback) differential of about 1yr-18mo average. Have fun with this stupid argument, though.

The only question is will Severna Park win the state championship game by more than 10 goals or only 5 to 10 more.

Wrong. 16. Will still be eligible for MIAA as Senior, which will be the ultimate documentation that your math was off by 1.

McD frosh FOGO drives....I have to think he will be 17 soon.


Before you go trashing or making false statements, why don't you get your facts straight. This young man is from Florida and is still a Florida resident with his parents. At McD he is a boarding student and obviously lives in Md. during the school year. He just got his drivers license as he just turned 16. Florida law, learners permit at 15 and must be kept for one year than at 16 a provisional drivers license.
People like you are just so full of sh*t and hate. So now its your turn, where did you get your infothat states he will be 17 soon? Come on dbag, lets hear it.

Not a lie. Well documented. And everybody hates Gilman.


how's it documented? on the pages of this anonymous website?


Why do you care how old a kid on varsity is as long as he did not hit his 19th Birthday before starting his senior year? That's the only rule for miaa.

I believe that is the rule for most HS's. People get so wound up about this. Maybe there are some advantages for middle school grade teams but HS is HS and your are going to have at least a 4 year variance across players ages and even more in college if they're lucky enough to play at that level...

Fake News. Spalding does not compete in the MIAA.


McD frosh FOGO drives....I have to think he will be 17 soon.


Before you go trashing or making false statements, why don't you get your facts straight. This young man is from Florida and is still a Florida resident with his parents. At McD he is a boarding student and obviously lives in Md. during the school year. He just got his drivers license as he just turned 16. Florida law, learners permit at 15 and must be kept for one year than at 16 a provisional drivers license.
People like you are just so full of sh*t and hate. So now its your turn, where did you get your infothat states he will be 17 soon? Come on dbag, lets hear it.



uhhhh.... he's driving as a freshman, so he's 16.... my son was 14 as a freshman.... turned 15 during summer before soph year.... I am not the original poster but ... its pretty clear (even according to you) that these guys are creating an advantage... it's ok though ... it will all work itself out... I've watched a few of these guys continue to accelerate their growth as players... and I've seen just as many of them ride the pine a little more every season as their peers catch them. It all works out. The coaches will field the best players no matter where they are on Ty Xander's list.

Amazing that people are still using a kids age as an excuse as to why their own kid isn't able to perform at a higher level.

If you just turned 16 as a freshman in high school and you are starting on varsity in the MIAA which is the most competitive lax conference in the country and playing against 17,18 and 19 year olds, where is the advantage? I personally give the young man credit for competing regardless of the result at seasons end.

If my memory serves me correctly this same kid started on varsity as an 8th grader in Florida and was the top FOGO in the state going nearly 80% on the season. Where was the advantage last year when he was 14-15 competing against 17,18 and 19 year olds?

I give credit where it's due and I most certainly don't make excuses as to why my son hasn't been recruited, sits the bench or didn't make the varsity squad, maybe the people on this site that are so critical should stop making excuses for their kids and accept the fact that they just may not be good enough to play varsity or college lacrosse.

My son plays lacrosse for Gilman. There is not a 17 year old freshman on the lacrosse team. I believe the young man in question turned 16 recently. To my knowledge, there are two reclassed boys in the entire Gilman lacrosse program. Most of the boys at Gilman are born after 9/1 and age appropriate for their grades.

He was an 8th grader in Florida... as per your post... different place than Baltimore. That said, I agree with you. He is starting in the best hs lacrosse league in the USA. Props to the young man and like I said, he may well accelerate his growth as a player. He is certainly set up for success.

My point is that age works itself out for the most part and matters less and less as the kids progress through high school to the next level.

Not a rule in the wcac. Check out Gonzagas roster the last few years. Plenty of 19 year olds playing.

Spalding won't have a choice, if they win zero conference games AGAiN this year the conference will move them down. Just look at that record and add 9 losses to it which they will have this year.
The 2021 class they keep talking about is a joke, nobody other than spalding coaches and the kids parents think they are good. They can't even win a hoco game

I was wondering why they havent competed in years. They have been the bottom feeder of the Balt County teams for years. They have a prefirst class?? Maybe enlarge that class and take some reclassed players. Everyone else is

Fat Crab and the Gilman kid interviewed by us lacrosse magazine about the recruiting rule change. Mr. "Selling the dream" and his holdbacks don't like the fact their reclassed kids actually have to perform against kids who have gone through puberty - boo hoo.

Why do people get wound up? Other than local bragging rights nobody GAF about HS lacrosse. Recruiting happens at the club level and the 18 year old still has an advantage against the 16 year old there.

Saying "they're all in HS now" is the primary deflection tactic of a holdback parent.

Holding your child back works unfortunately. Many coaches and parents associated with MIAA have held their sons back for years in prefirst. They know the drill. And many are not summer birthdays as the apologists love to point out. It gives them a boost and if they are a decent player as they get older in their age group..they are a good player when playing down in grade. When HS rolls around many of these players are usually starters on JV at the very least. They usually get more playing time and reps at youth level. After that it is up to them. But there is a reason that starters even in HS are usually Seniors and Juniors..They are older..so being held back is an advantage even in HS. Maybe not as much , but it is.

If you could and you kid is really into lacrosse...You would be a fool not to reclass him in 8th grade if you didnt do prefirst. But even better if you are in Baltimore and a lacrosse person, start your child late. It can only help if he like lacrosse later.

It's obvious, and comical, when a public school parent tries to explain pre-first, desperately trying to tie it to sports. Just for the record, no, parents aren't holding their kid back in pre-first (at 5-6 years old) because one day they may get an advantage at middle school, or high school sports. Just no. Most kids at this age haven't even started sports, or spend most of the time picking dandelions on the field of whatever sport they did get signed up for, so no, most people aren't just arbitrarily shelling out an extra 25-30k just yet!! Now, for those that can gently remove head from arse for just one moment, let me try to help you. After kindergarten, the schools will conduct a conference with the parents, and most kids in private school are recommended for prefirst. Some object, and move on to first grade, most don't. Unless your kid is really big, really late birthday, really smart, or you are really poor or really old school, most just do it because it seems like the right thing to do (you know, maybe follow an evolving educational system, rather than just do what the government has done for 100 years). Private school is just simply more challenging, so not surprised there is an extra grade, for those that wish to do it. And, no, kindergarten and first grade teachers don't give a monkey turd about MS or HS lacrosse. They care about childhood development, as in social and academic. This whole reality is why we see many lateral transfers from public to private, or some repeating in MS, because they are behind the pre-first kids. Sure, there are some kids and parents out there with a big chip on their shoulder when they step out on the lacrosse field as a holdback, but the schools make very thoughtful decisions when it comes to evaluating a kid's option to repeat a grade. The argument as it pertains to the club lacrosse brackets should be a rules argument with the league, not criticism to parents or players for the educational decisions they make as a family.

Question: Who at Spalding is doing to coach / develop / lead this incoming legion of stud Jimmy Laxalots? Last I checked there was no real alumni core at Spalding and the head coach was advertising for assistants on Twitter (while counting down the days until he can upgrade and go home to Severn)

Well perhaps you care...but it does not matter. Club play is what matters, if your goal is recruiting, and there a 2 year gap is still an advantage.

Only one making excuses is you. No one cares about prefirst and what you do with your child for any reason in school. Even for sports in school. Who cares. What people have an issue with is the select kids being able to play down in YOUTH sports. Do you get that.. The majority of kids did not do prefirst or go to private school... Why do these select kids get an advantage other children same exact birthday and age dont get?? This is YOUTH sports..all should get it or none..pretty simple concept except to long winded apologists like you who want to bring strawman arguments into this issue.

I am very familiar with the MIAA Balt private schools. They are great schools to educate children. I had one finish and Two still go to private. And if you dont think that sports is thought of when these kids do prefirst...well you either are ignorant or have your head in sand. Of course other factors are also responsible as some children dont even play sports that do prefirst. Most schools encourage strongly the parents of kindergarten boys to do prefirst if they are born in the summer.

spalding has won 2 miaa games in the past 3 or 4 seasons so of course they are going to hold out hope some 7th graders can help them. If a parent has any interest in lacrosse they should be sending the kid to Severn, St. Mary's or Severna Park. The 21's they are getting are team cancers, just ask any Hawk parent.

....why does everything have to have a such a toxic slant......the poster above had an opinion that there were strong classes heading to Spalding, just an opinion , thats all...nothing provocative ....next thing you know we are talking about team cancers.....lol.... really?

The interesting thing is those that are actually in the game - like the coaches, players, trainers, ADs, parents (mostly) have great respect for each other, and the sport - and genuinely get along - its a lacrosse family- they compete hard and walk off the field friends that do business together, help each other, and do whatever possible to make a student-athletes journey a great one...

It gives them a boost and if they are a decent player as they get older in their age group..they are a good player when playing down in grade. When HS rolls around many of these players are usually starters on JV at the very least. They usually get more playing time and reps at youth level. After that it is up to them. But there is a reason that starters even in HS are usually Seniors and Juniors..They are older..so being held back is an advantage even in HS. Maybe not as much , but it is.

It's obvious, and comical, when a public school parent tries to explain pre-first, desperately trying to tie it to sports. Just for the record, no, parents aren't holding their kid back in pre-first (at 5-6 years old) because one day they may get an advantage at middle school, or high school sports. Just no. Most kids at this age haven't even started sports, or spend most of the time picking dandelions on the field of whatever sport they did get signed up for, so no, most people aren't just arbitrarily shelling out an extra 25-30k just yet!! Now, for those that can gently remove head from arse for just one moment, let me try to help you. After kindergarten, the schools will conduct a conference with the parents, and most kids in private school are recommended for prefirst. Some object, and move on to first grade, most don't. Unless your kid is really big, really late birthday, really smart, or you are really poor or really old school, most just do it because it seems like the right thing to do (you know, maybe follow an evolving educational system, rather than just do what the government has done for 100 years). Private school is just simply more challenging, so not surprised there is an extra grade, for those that wish to do it. And, no, kindergarten and first grade teachers don't give a monkey turd about MS or HS lacrosse. They care about childhood development, as in social and academic. This whole reality is why we see many lateral transfers from public to private, or some repeating in MS, because they are behind the pre-first kids. Sure, there are some kids and parents out there with a big chip on their shoulder when they step out on the lacrosse field as a holdback, but the schools make very thoughtful decisions when it comes to evaluating a kid's option to repeat a grade. The argument as it pertains to the club lacrosse brackets should be a rules argument with the league, not criticism to parents or players for the educational decisions they make as a family. [/quote]

Only one making excuses is you. No one cares about prefirst and what you do with your child for any reason in school. Even for sports in school. Who cares. What people have an issue with is the select kids being able to play down in YOUTH sports. Do you get that.. The majority of kids did not do prefirst or go to private school... Why do these select kids get an advantage other children same exact birthday and age dont get?? This is YOUTH sports..all should get it or none..pretty simple concept except to long winded apologists like you who want to bring strawman arguments into this issue.

I am very familiar with the MIAA Balt private schools. They are great schools to educate children. I had one finish and Two still go to private. And if you dont think that sports is thought of when these kids do prefirst...well you either are ignorant or have your head in sand. Of course other factors are also responsible as some children dont even play sports that do prefirst. Most schools encourage strongly the parents of kindergarten boys to do prefirst if they are born in the summer.

Just because someone chooses to send their kid to a third world school with a curriculum from the stone age, doesn't mean I have to tell my private school 2nd grader to pretend he/she is a 3rd grader at lacrosse practice.

with all of the talk about holdbacks and the age limit can anyone at all give just one instance when a good player that was held back like everyone says missed their SR season because of age? I have NEVER heard of this happening and with all holdbacks that people claim you would think you would hear about that....must not be an issue

No one ever double holdbacks. It is just a common fabrication when a really big kid dominates a smaller kid.

That's because most coaches know it exists and they look the other way in case they ever have a player like that. This is an anonymous board but I have heard it directly from the mouth of an MIAA lacrosse coach. They don't check. Don't ask, don't tell.

Coaches all know each other. No one is making an issue of the rare kid that is 19.

Hillarious that all these 2020 holdbacks that go to MIAA schools that aren't committed now have to wait til their Jr. Year to be able to pound their chest on Ty Xanders twitter account. The holdback game is the scourge of youth lacrosse and hopefully the ER rule change puts an end to it.

Even more hilarious are the ones who were held back in 7th for "academic reasons" and have yet to get an offer from anyone.

Well if it was for Academic reasons they will benefit from being held back. And ask yourself a question " what does it say about me if I am happy when a child is harmed from his parents choice?" My point being you should insure your anger is pointing at the correct person in these cases not the child. They are kids and should never have to read or feel any judgement from strange adults on a anonymous site or in person. People point out all the time that their is no money to be given out in lacrosse so why is your anger so high?

What's hilarious? Are they being more productive in school? Are they getting better grades? What parent in their right mind would want an 8th grader to get an offer from a college! Sounds like you are either envious, or for some reason really really like to worry about other kids. That's weird. Getting an offer Junior year sounds great. Again, you said hilarious, and I'm not even seeing anything you should be concerned with; I hope you aren't sitting around thinking there is some great contingency of people out there that are suffering, and somehow thinking you are getting amusement from it! Fake dreams. Get a life!!

You obviously don't know the game. There are still many 19's out there that will be making commitments this Fall, so to think there is some great travesty out there with 20's is a false hope. You either are good enough, or you aren't. There are great placements Junior and Senior year at D1, D2, and D3. Relax, worry about yourself dude. As you look out the side and rear windows, there's something coming right at you out the front. Try to enjoy something real, my friend.

Actually baseball is a money sport. Most lacrosse players dont have the ability to make it in baseball, basketball or football at D1 level or beyond. That is why all this " grade based garbage" goes on now with the private school parents. They know little johnny cant make it without some kind of edge over other players same age.

If you think lacrosse is the only sport where kids reclass or are held back you clearly don't know what you're talking about. Every sport has it, especially football, more than lacrosse. And before you say lacrosse is the only one where it affects youth levels remember what forum you're on and think about all the football hotbeds where most kids play for their middle school. Stop with the complaining that this is a lacrosse / private school issue. It happens in all sports around the country.

Spoken like a true private school elitist idiot. Private schools excel at Lacrosse not because of the quality of good players but because of the quantity. Many publics have excellent players, just not enough of them. In cases where they do - severna park for example, they can certainly give the privates a run for their money.

After 100k+ in private school tuition, congratulations on your sons's comittment to Concordia-Ann Arbor university.

Uh - there are huge number of kids in the MIAA that re-classed just so they could shine against younger kids and get verbal commitments. That game didn't pay off too well for the ones that aren't committed...

And if you dont think that sports is thought of when these kids do prefirst...well you either are ignorant or have your head in sand. Of course other factors are also responsible as some children dont even play sports that do prefirst. Most schools encourage strongly the parents of kindergarten boys to do prefirst if they are born in the summer.


Just because someone chooses to send their kid to a third world school with a curriculum from the stone age, doesn't mean I have to tell my private school 2nd grader to pretend he/she is a 3rd grader at lacrosse practice.



Of course not at school. But in the outside world of youth sports they go by age. Ooops..Not youth lacrosse. They give special privileges to select kids that were heldback in school and let them play down..Ooops I mean it is within the rules


Spoken like a true parent of a mediocre public school player. Chin up, buttercup. There is always baseball.


Actually baseball is a money sport. Most lacrosse players dont have the ability to make it in baseball, basketball or football at D1 level or beyond. That is why all this " grade based garbage" goes on now with the private school parents. They know little johnny cant make it without some kind of edge over other players same age.


Actually no. I doubt there are many mid-westerners or aspiring baseball/football players on here, but welcome. This is actually simply an argument caused by differing school curriculums in the mid-atlantic at private vs. public schools, now spreading North and a bit South. Whatever you are talking about probably goes on in other sports, but this is a lacrosse forum. Lacrosse players love to play lacrosse, but typically are looking for a professional career outside of playing sports for money. Lacrosse in college is for competition, better collegiate opportunities, social and future professional connections and opportunities. No, lacrosse is not typically a fall back sport that we play because we couldn't make it in a money sport. Lacrosse players who play this as their primary sport typically make that decision as a youth, because they love the sport.

You obviously don't know the game. There are still many 19's out there that will be making commitments this Fall, so to think there is some great travesty out there with 20's is a false hope.

As you look out the side and rear windows, there's something coming right at you out the front. Try to enjoy something real, my friend.


Uh - there are huge number of kids in the MIAA that re-classed just so they could shine against younger kids and get verbal commitments. That game didn't pay off too well for the ones that aren't committed...


Fake news. Now we are basing the future success of a kid, or lack of success, on a collegiate career that hasn't occurred yet! The race is to get to the finish line, hon, not get told half way through that you don't have to race anymore. Go enjoy your life, stop creating fake milestones in other peoples' lives, and trying to enjoy some non-existent disparity. You did reach the finish line of being a loser, so you can rejoice in that, however.

Oh my lord, just let public school club lax players freakin play down -1 year from their grade already, if they choose. After one season, they'll start complaining that it doesn't make sense to play outside of their grad year anymore, because they aren't with their classmates, and as they approach HS the system has to be grad year, because it is the only way to make recruiting and tourneys relevant....oh wait a minute.....sh*t

numbers of kids who reclass by repeating 8th or 9th grade is not huge. a handful each year. kids who had a prefirst - probably around 25% of each class - give or take 10% depending on which school.

50% of boys in my one of my sons grades in lower school did prefirst. Other son is was closer to 1/3.. Was less as they got older and let more students in.

And many are not summer birthdays as the apologists love to point out. It gives them a boost and if they are a decent player as they get older in their age group..they are a good player when playing down in grade. When HS rolls around many of these players are usually starters on JV at the very least. They usually get more playing time and reps at youth level. After that it is up to them. But there is a reason that starters even in HS are usually Seniors and Juniors..They are older..so being held back is an advantage even in HS. Maybe not as much , but it is.

It's obvious, and comical, when a public school parent tries to explain pre-first, desperately trying to tie it to sports. Just for the record, no, parents aren't holding their kid back in pre-first (at 5-6 years old) because one day they may get an advantage at middle school, or high school sports. Just no. Most kids at this age haven't even started sports, or spend most of the time picking dandelions on the field of whatever sport they did get signed up for, so no, most people aren't just arbitrarily shelling out an extra 25-30k just yet!! Now, for those that can gently remove head from arse for just one moment, let me try to help you. After kindergarten, the schools will conduct a conference with the parents, and most kids in private school are recommended for prefirst. Some object, and move on to first grade, most don't. Unless your kid is really big, really late birthday, really smart, or you are really poor or really old school, most just do it because it seems like the right thing to do (you know, maybe follow an evolving educational system, rather than just do what the government has done for 100 years). Private school is just simply more challenging, so not surprised there is an extra grade, for those that wish to do it. And, no, kindergarten and first grade teachers don't give a monkey turd about MS or HS lacrosse. They care about childhood development, as in social and academic. This whole reality is why we see many lateral transfers from public to private, or some repeating in MS, because they are behind the pre-first kids. Sure, there are some kids and parents out there with a big chip on their shoulder when they step out on the lacrosse field as a holdback, but the schools make very thoughtful decisions when it comes to evaluating a kid's option to repeat a grade. The argument as it pertains to the club lacrosse brackets should be a rules argument with the league, not criticism to parents or players for the educational decisions they make as a family.

Only one making excuses is you. No one cares about prefirst and what you do with your child for any reason in school. Even for sports in school. Who cares. What people have an issue with is the select kids being able to play down in YOUTH sports. Do you get that.. The majority of kids did not do prefirst or go to private school... Why do these select kids get an advantage other children same exact birthday and age dont get?? This is YOUTH sports..all should get it or none..pretty simple concept except to long winded apologists like you who want to bring strawman arguments into this issue.

I am very familiar with the MIAA Balt private schools. They are great schools to educate children. I had one finish and Two still go to private.

There are some nice athletics for sure, and many are better than student athletics at some other college sports. But come on..Very few are going to play D1 football or D1 Basketball no matter how hard they try. Listen we need a sport for the 5-8 to 6-1 white guy. This is it!

BS on the number of reclassed kids in the MIAA is small. Just watch the players on FCA, Loonies and Crabs migrate to grade below. It's how the game is played in Baltimore.
Posted By: Anonymous

Re: Boys High School - 05/02/17 12:24 AM

It's played elsewhere as well. My guy is on grade and is only one of four that is not pre-first, reclassed or both. The facts are the facts and those kids are committed to top academic D1's or Committed to the process at the IVY's, the end justifies the means.
One thing I have seen is that the age difference advantage is collaspsing materially. I am not sure if there is much room for the late-bloomers, but I am sure that a reasonable amount of kids will pass the early commits, hopefully coaches will find them.

Everyone talks about this re-class thing or pre-first etc. like its a huge crime, Lacrosse has become a huge money maker for schools, coaches etc and now the parents should use it for what its worth. And this is what I mean, if you re-class your child for whatever reason and it helps him athletically, academically, and helps him get into a great school of his choice then as a parent you did what you should do. There's a very prominent lacrosse family whose kids have graduated from JHU, UVA, Georgetown, Rutgers, Boston U all because of lacrosse. Based on those degrees I would say the investment they made more then paid off. btw I wish my parents held me back more...this work thing sucks!

I thought Spalding was going to be contender this year? This was FINALLY supposed to be the year. They are now 5-10 overall and winless in the conference, with St. Pauls, and McDonogh looming. What is going on? Who is steering this ship of alleged studs?

This would be a good moment for one of the Spalding dads to put down his red cup and remind us of how great they are going to be some day in the future. For your own safety and for the safety of those around you, please hold off typing until you get out of the traffic jam on I-97.

And Severn was really supposed to be good this year and was ranked at the top before conference season started. They are still looking for their first win as well. Can no one coach these kids in AA county?

And then their coach went to Loyola. That St. Mary's team was full of seniors with a dominant fogo. That is the only time St. Mary's was ever even in the finals so lets not pretend that they were "in the A conference mix every year". Other than upsetting St Pauls they haven't done anything this year either.

Have no fear... some stud 2021s are swooping in to save the day over at Spalding. Sure, this group can't put together a winning record in the Hoco league as eighth graders but their dads tell me they are really REALLY good.

Gonzaga had a down year. And WCAC was weak. Paul VI continued to under deliver with the alleged talent that they are supposed to have. Would St. John's even win a game in the MIAA???


Yup they would.



Future is bright for SJC with Trig gone.


Does anyone know what clubs the St Johns kids play for?



Yeah, Blackwolf.

Less than any team in the US. Could a Paul VI parent please tell us how you can do so little? Do you guys not practice? No one doubts the talent but you almost have to try not to win with all those kids.


You can watch the games and see what it is. Look at the hustle for the ground balls and apparent lack of offensive strategy other than dodge until you can shoot. They do have some great talent but there is some underlying hunger/pride missing. Even losing faceoffs outright does not account for the lack of conversion in man-up situations and winning ground balls when the F/O is a draw.

When I google Joseph S Trigiani, I find an old article about a 26yo convicted child abuser. Is that the same Trig? Why is he coaching children?

Until they have a national playoff for all top teams (Hill, Culver, Top MIAA, LI schools). You will continue to get #1 teams with a relatively weak schedule.

Did you? Not much of a test other than Bullis in conference. No other top 25 teams. MIAA wins from teams that won't even make MIAA playoffs.

Yes I did

According to Inside Lacrosse which is the only publication that currently has Landon at #2, they beat
Bullis (#7) (twice)
St. Ignatius (#10)
Brunswick (#12)

They also beat the top 4 teams in the WCAC
Robinson and Churchill are public school teams that will go far in their states

The MIAA is down this year, especially considering that Calvert Hall is the current top team in that league with 2 losses. Please don't pretend that they would be Landon this year. Landon has 5 UA All Americans in the their starting 10. They're completely stacked this year.

Not a Landon dad, but they would beat any MIAA team this year.

If you were at the Landon/BL scrimmage you wouldn't be saying that they would definitely beat any MIAA team this year. That's just nonsense.

The scrimmages Landon had with BL and McDonogh this year were just that--scrimmages in which Landon's entire bench got to play, at length, and provided great training to all involved. The expert polls ranking Landon at #1 in the nation (and McDonogh and BL below that both nationally and regionally) reflect the experts' belief that if these scrimmages had been actual games, Landon would have emerged the victor over both of these excellent MIAA teams.

The polls don't mean that at all as I'm sure they didn't see the scrimmages or many other games that Landon plays. Maybe because they don't play anyone. You honestly think they could go through the MIAA without a loss?

A playoff is needed. If these teams can fly all over the country for in-season games, they surely can do it for a couple playoff games. Until then, you will continue to have these relatively untested teams at #1.

Needed? Why, so the dads from the winning team can come on here to brag? I wouldn't say needed, especially as kids are getting ready for exams or graduation. Needed is a strong word. What other HIGH SCHOOL sport has a national playoff?

FWIW, we played both Landon and McDonough.. We only lost to Landon by a few, even with 2 top players out and losing every faceoff, but we got destroyed by McDonough - wasn't even close. McDonough is definitely the better, more rounded team. Before the Landon homers start spewing # of commits and UA players, I'm not disputing that Landon has great, individual players, but McDonough, and the top MIAA teams in general, just play beautiful, team oriented lacrosse. The IAC lags behind in that respect.

Geico is sponsoring the national championship later this month. GP, Hill, IMG and others are participating. They just need everyone else to get on board.

And McD finished 3rd in the MIAA. Landon is a middle of the pack team in Baltimore. It's a shame they like to play the bottom of the barrel of MIAA teams in the regular season each year.

Why is there so much POT smoking in high school lacrosse. My son plays for top MIAA team and the amount of drugs but mostly POT is unimaginable. I know this will spill into politics but I just don't see the same amount of drug use with other athletes. It's really sad to see these kids start this terrible habit. How can you call yourself an athlete and smoke pot the majority of the year. Legalizing it around this country is a huge mistake for our youth. I think more high school coaches need to band together and try to get their players away from this gateway drug. Problem is though, a lot of coaches do it to I think. My son plays basketball and football as well and those teams don't have even close to the numbers of athletes smoking POT. Get it together lacrosse coaches. Stop this nonsense.

Testing for eligibility is the only way. No marketing or threats alone will work. It's become too mainstream, and unlike most serious vices, access and penalties are easing. Serious athletes would stop if they were going to get tested, or at least threat of random testing. I'm a complete hypocrite now that I have kids, but nothing good ever happens because you are high or drunk. Moderation and safety are the most realistic expectations, unless you are fortunate enough to have a kid that is extraordinarily responsible.

You can call it what you want, but you need a new head coach and pronto.

Nah, we like our head coach, assistant coaches, school, and extended pvifamily. Oh, and we've never won a championship.

Screw that. I hope the McDonogh holdback cheaters smoke the Calvert Hall holdback cheaters tonight. Brian Kelly ha jumped so deeply into that holdback cesspool. At least all Andy does is bring in kids from all over and put them up in the dorms...

Money wins and Brian Kelly has out spent all other MIAA schools to load his team up just in time to support his boys. But you can't deny talent at CH. honestly, the B and C conferences are low level lacrosse. JC is ok but much slower and smaller game.

To win in MIAA A division you have to offer money. Period. The schools that don't fall behind.

Please look at Landon's schedule and let us know how they are the best team. Very soft.

Re: Boys High School - 05/26/17 03:10 PM

There is a reason they are ranked #1 in just about every poll--beat 2 top ten teams--Brunswick and St. Ignatius; and twice beat Bullis which sits in top 20 and would be top 5 if didn't lose twice to Landon. Easiest game for Landon was win over Churchill, who lost on a last second goal in MD state champs....

I agree Landon's schedule is soft. No chance they are better than mcdonough or calvert hall. They are a mediocre team when they dont win 90% of face offs.

Bullis is average at best. Saw them get abused by McDonogh. Not even remotely competitive. I'll give you St Ignatius, but Brunswick? Ok, I suppose. The MIAA teams they played really struggled this year.
It is hard not to give them top billing I guess but they are FAR from the "best team ever" as others have intimated. Not even in the discussion.

Well Lacrosse has always been a sport dominated by wealthy so it makes sense that Landon has a good team. What else is Landon competitive in. Hmmmm. Crickets. I still think they lose to CH or McDonogh.

Landon is this year's IAC Founders Cup co-champion, given annually to the school(s) with the best combined finishes in both IAC regular season and tournament play in 11 sports. Varsity tennis went undefeated. Rugby won its championship. Varsity soccer is stacked with talent for next year. If that's what you call crickets?

If you think that McDonogh's astoundingly huge endowment is not being utilized to recruit lacrosse players, then you're crazy. As far as the girls' lacrosse program goes there, approximately one in four lacrosse players that come out of the middle school will actually make the varsity team because the girls' varsity team is almost completely recruited from the outside. Don't kid yourself about any sport at McDonogh and the amount of scholarship dollars that are spent to get kids enrolled and on the field.

It is one of the few MIAA schools that can recruit from far away and board them. With a graduation class of 60-80 boys it is hard to compete against the other MIAA schools with much larger boys graduating.

No MIAA teams either. Not much of a "National" championship without Baltimore or LI teams. Of course a Canadian team was in it so "national" was used kind of loosely anyway.

Re: Boys High School - 06/06/17 12:18 AM

It would be interesting to see where these kids played up until 9th or 10th grade. That's when the fat crab and the money junkie BK at FCA brings the best players to play at Vail or in the Crabs tourneys. This will change in the next few years. Crabs model is in the sh*tter with the new rules and many have figured the Kelly [lacrosse]...

Re: Boys High School - 06/06/17 03:48 PM

The Crabs club is a successful business, generating revenue thru club, camps and tournaments. FCA is a charity, they pay coaches next to nothing (most time is donated) and they bring in college talent for the summer to coach for a small stipend. Both formats are working and will continue to work. The track record of these clubs putting boys into the right colleges is unparalleled in the Baltimore area...go a little south and Annapolis Hawks are a top program. The kids will play where they are coached and developed to move on to a Div 1 program (or D3 if the right fit). I am sure BK donates more $ to the FCA program then many make in a year. Good family, club has right values...only knock is the club does feed many young men into Calvert Hall (but McDonogh has boarding and other schools have fallen behind in the recruiting aspect).

FCA bait/switch kids every year, promising them spots on the AA teams at tryouts, then switching them at the last minute once they have basically turned down offers for other teams to the A teams, which are kept around to fund the lavish AA team trips. Next, and once they establish their AA rosters at the HS level, they pick up kids all through the year, over-filling the rosters, and families find out late in the year that instead of their son playing in 3-4 Summer events, all of a sudden they are only invited to 2, or 1 in some cases where they can get away with it. Lastly, the director's relatives and select friends are consistently allowed to play on multiple teams at multiple brackets, taking away legitimate spots for other players that are either not invited, or pushed down to the A teams. There is plenty of lacrosse to go around, and the players that do this are usually very good, so it is just ridiculous and selfish. Other than that, they are very holy and special.

They are in your pockets constantly... Fund this mission. Fund this family....Blah Blah....It's a cult that always wants your money more than any other club.

All clubs need to rent office space in the most expensive parts of Baltimore County too, right? I mean, what would god say if they had to ship in boxes of for-profit apparel to their houses or backs of their escalades? God loves when charities lease storefront space in Glyndon.

FCA Lacrosse office is in a nondescript business park in Towson off Joppa road not Glyndon. Which houses they're 6 full time staff members. No one on staff has an Escalade or anything close to being that nice. Actually they do ship most of their apparel to their houses and then sell it below retail online. Any other inaccuracies you'd like me to correct?

You should get your facts straight before writing on these things. The office space in Glyndon was donated and FCA was lucky enough to use it for years. FCA's office is not there anymore. The original post was correct that FCA is a non profit with all of the coaches volunteering their time and the college kids coming back for the summer are there to invest in the young players on each team. Rosters are bigger in the summer on the high school teams because most of these teams are made up of young men who play varsity (actually play) for their high schools and don't feel it is necessary to play in 8 tournaments each summer for their club team. Also, many of these players are also playing for their high school teams in tournaments like NHSLS. This plus Under Armour underclass (many selected this year play for both FCA and Crabs) makes for a busy summer & only choosing to play in 3 tournaments for FCA makes sense.

All clubs need to rent office space in the most expensive parts of Baltimore County too, right? I mean, what would god say if they had to ship in boxes of for-profit apparel to their houses or backs of their escalades? God loves when charities lease storefront space in Glyndon. [/quote]


You should get your facts straight before writing on these things. The office space in Glyndon was donated and FCA was lucky enough to use it for years. FCA's office is not there anymore. The original post was correct that FCA is a non profit with all of the coaches volunteering their time and the college kids coming back for the summer are there to invest in the young players on each team. Rosters are bigger in the summer on the high school teams because most of these teams are made up of young men who play varsity (actually play) for their high schools and don't feel it is necessary to play in 8 tournaments each summer for their club team. Also, many of these players are also playing for their high school teams in tournaments like NHSLS. This plus Under Armour underclass (many selected this year play for both FCA and Crabs) makes for a busy summer & only choosing to play in 3 tournaments for FCA makes sense. [/quote]

But it makes sense for your kid to play for two different teams in two different brackets, instead of any one of the qualified kids that are stuck with you because their parents make them go to your school. Whatever argument fits your agenda, hey there, big guy. Chickens coming home to roost. You pissed off a lot of people with your hypocritical ways. Your turn in the hopper, brother. Bless you.

Re: Boys High School - 06/06/17 08:16 PM

Here's a testimonial for you.....my kid has played for FCA for years and we chose for him to attend Calvert Hall because we know the quality of coaching that he would receive there. We really didn't even consider other schools because we knew what we wanted would be found at Calvert Hall. No one tweets our arms or threatened us.....we chose it.

Furthermore, no one who works for FCA is earning anything close to what other clubs are paying directors and staff. Every FCA staff member raises his or her own salary and they spend an average of six months doing that before they even work their first day with FCA.

But that's cool if you just want to hate because your kid didn't make the team he wanted to make.

Just another sham organization. Keep doing God's work, my man, which somehow translates into lying to tryout families and playing relatives on multiple teams during the same season, because that is not self-serving at all.

Any bunch of turd burglars can call themselves a ministry. It's a shame how they string kids along with poor coaching through middle school on the white teams, then abandon many good players at the early HS levels. That's ok, there are actual real good folks out there, doing the work that you advertise, instead of pretending.

All clubs need to rent office space in the most expensive parts of Baltimore County too, right? I mean, what would god say if they had to ship in boxes of for-profit apparel to their houses or backs of their escalades? God loves when charities lease storefront space in Glyndon. [/quote]


You should get your facts straight before writing on these things. The office space in Glyndon was donated and FCA was lucky enough to use it for years. FCA's office is not there anymore. The original post was correct that FCA is a non profit with all of the coaches volunteering their time and the college kids coming back for the summer are there to invest in the young players on each team. Rosters are bigger in the summer on the high school teams because most of these teams are made up of young men who play varsity (actually play) for their high schools and don't feel it is necessary to play in 8 tournaments each summer for their club team. Also, many of these players are also playing for their high school teams in tournaments like NHSLS. This plus Under Armour underclass (many selected this year play for both FCA and Crabs) makes for a busy summer & only choosing to play in 3 tournaments for FCA makes sense. [/quote]

Someone above mentioned the Underarmour team and how many FCA/Calvert Hall kids are on the team this year. Of course...it is BK coaching but there is no coincidence I am sure. Many did not try out when they learned he would be coaching as it would be FCA antics all over.

Your telling me the undefeated MIAA Championship team had players make the UA team. That makes zero sense. Why would UA even have BK coach? Not like UA team coached by an FCA coach last year full of FCA/Calvert Hall players won their age group. Oh they did.

Under Armour while having many great players on their teams. Does seem to be heavy with players from teams the coaches ( Head and assistants) have in HS or Club. It is a fact. Not that many other good players dont make it. It is just that the majority on any one team is laden with their players ( who are also usually really good). Supposedly the coaches arent allowed to discuss their own players while determining teams! LOL. Yea ..You scratch my back I will scratch yours!

This is more of an issue at the 9-10th grade teams than 11-12th grade teams to me. But it varies depending on region.

I'm from nova and I agree with both sides. Yes, PVI does have very good coaches but they have also have SOME players who are overly entitled and think very highly of themselves. I disagree with the original statement though. PVI, if anything, has the second most stacked roster behind Gonzaga, PVI consistently pulls top players from VLC because most of the coaches coach for both teams. If any school does the most with the least it has to be St. John's. There's no way you can only have 3 senior recruits and beat a recruit writhered Gonzaga team in the championship, it's unheard of. Not to mention St. John's just got their head coach (coach speaks) this year.

On the field, Spalding has racked up just two conference wins in his three year tenure as head coach and zero in the past two seasons.

I feel sorry for any gullible 2021 or 2022 players and parents who were pulled in. If you signed up your boy at Spalding because of lacrosse and because you were wowed by "potential" + shiny facilities + head coach from the MLL you are trying to build a castle on sand.

AND I hear there are some new dad coaches inbound. Enjoy!

That is completely false about John Carroll. They have tried to move up and been denied by the A conference committee. If you knew anything about how it works, the conference schools AD's have to vote on the move, once they get a majority then the move happens provided there is an opening. When friends moved down that should have created an opening but they went to a new alignment.

This was Spalding's 14th year in the A Conference, I would be very surprised if they have 10 conference wins in that time span. It was a move spurred by the desire to upgrade facilities, one stud on the basketball court and one stud on the lacrosse field. In soliciting donations, the promise of the A Conference was used as bait. A definite "Field of Dreams" scenario that has never quite materialized.

"You cant handle the truth"...
That is exactly what happened and if you would like why don't you talk to the AD's at Gilman, Calvert Hall, BL, St. Paul's just to name a few that voted against it. They did vote against it for the right reasons because at the time JC did not want to make the commitment that was needed. Now I think they have demonstrated that they have. I personally think JC would struggle ( be in the bottom 4 pretty consistently) in the A conference unless they could get 95% of the lax players that r going into Baltimore, but heck that's what has happened to St Marys, Spaulding, St. Joe and Severn..even Gilman the last few years.
That's why the A conference is arguably the best conference top to bottom in the country. Never an easy game.

Like it or not phipps hasn't won a single game in 2 of his 3 seasons and just wait until the Bayhawks owner comes to town. Nobody has ever seen daddy ball like him and it's play his son or phipps doesn't play for the Bayhawks. It's a bad web that's being woven up on new cut road.

This is a ridiculous comment, two players left the team during the season. A back up attackman and a defenseman who had concussion issues. Another defenseman quit during tryouts because he wasn't going to start. Hardly staggering numbers.

Landon has no daddy ball issues--just a dedicated father and son who coached the 2017 team to #1 national ranking in a number of polls. 2017 team played unselfish ball and the mantra that no one player is more important than the team was understood by all. 2018 team will be incredibly strong too.

The MIAA has BL, Calvert Hall, Loyola, McDonogh, St Pauls and Gilman( not lately) who usually are the dominate teams.

JC is going to get hammered playing A. They will move back down in 4 years when they get tired of losing most games by 10+ points. You ain't playing Curley and girls school of the blind anymore. JC lost to MSJ last year and that was with better JC team. It's gonna be ugly. But like previous poster said, it's just another bottom feeder that will never sniff a playoff seed.

Great coaching, new facilities, less tuition, nicer area, girls, great education - sure, that all sucks. The coach has won like 9 straight championships between there and Hereford, and they are already very competitive at many sports like Wrestling, Soccer, Bball, and almost all of the girls sports. Many families are 1/2 hour or 40 mins away, just other direction. With club ball environment the way it is now, I can see parents balancing the benefits vs necessarily being in the hunt for championship, which really isn't why folks pick the other schools either.

Its pretty sad when parents/players on the sideline at UA today are repeatedly joking about the Baltimore teams holdbacks. Watching 17 year rising 10th graders play vs. on age kids from all across the country is a blot on the sport. Sad.

Baltimore and the whole Holdback thing has become the talk of many regions. It is sad when it takes away the great lacrosse played by these High School boys.

Most people think ( justifiably in my opinion) that the Balt teams are loaded with holdbacks. So a 2020/2021 team is actually a 2019/2020 team. And their 2019/2018 team is basically a college Freshman team with a few HS seniors!

Its HS and most just shug their shoulders and laugh.. But many think just like I do..it doesnt seem quite right..

Funny...But if you look at many of the teams,,. Many of the players are either from the coaches Club team or HS team. Most are good players. But for sure their is some bias in selection.

I watched the Command Long Island team play this afternoon and they are impressive. A final against Baltimore would be an epic youth lacrosse game likely rivaling the DC vs Baltimore Command game last year.

Not sure how many 17 year old boys are playing for rising 9th and 10th grade Balt team..but Balt team has many many 16 year olds that will be 17 during 10th grade school year. Most of kids are from private MIAA schools so it follows that they are a holdback/prefirst/reclass

Majority of 10 graders for teams are 15 now and 16 during school year. But I bet Philly and NJ have some holdbacks playing too.

So not Fake News about holdbacks..but probably not many 17 year old kids playing. But who knows..maybe one or two for Balt??

. It's not some bias, its all bias with B Kelly. He is full of himself, had become the holdback king of club lacrosse, taking the lead over from Crabs. Sure most of the players are good as most are holdbacks and older than other 2020 teams. The FCA is a farce and he and others hide behind this crap, they are way far from religious, almost the opposite. The Calvert Hall team is full of his favorites and believe it, he plays favorites. How in the [lacrosse] he ever got coach of the year or whatever it was has many shaking their heads. He is not a coach with a high lax IQ. He is just good at throwing out the BS.

Posting DOB on the rosters like they did last year would demonstrate what a joke the grade based classification actually is - clearly that's why they stopped doing it. The Baltimore team's leading scorers are all reclassed. 10th and 11th graders pretending to be 9th graders.

"some" bias is being a bit generous.... cheers to those who truly earned their way on to the team with exceptional play at the tryouts.

Life doesn't go by the birthday buddy system. Education has evolved, not yours apparently. High School is by grade, not by age. Are you going to carry your stupid argument to college, men's league, grandpa league, and retirement home shuffleboard?

HS is by grade. But apologists like you never seem to respond to what he actually wrote. He is correct. The rising 9th grade Balt team could be a age wise 10th grade team. While the majority of the other teams are not able to do that.

And the stopping of age by player is a clear indication that many dont want it to be known. If it is no big deal why do they leave that information off??

Baltimore is correct in playing as rising 9th graders and are within the rules. And if it was a few overage players, dont think many would say a word. But it seems like the entire Baltimore team is a year older than the teams the are playing,,,,,Well the rest of us get to remark about how we feel when there is that much a difference between teams when playing by grade.

Wonder if Duke got their Freshman class and played any top HS senior team what would be said.. It is only 1 year difference...shouldnt matter.

Well said, and I thought the same thing.....if everything is completely ok then why the change in the publication of the birthdays? Obviously there is shame involved when you are unable to compete on age, no matter how much name-calling and attempts to bully the rest of us the holdback parents do.

Both of you should get your facts straight before posting. Kids who are both rising ninth and rising tenth graders are eligible to try out for the Command division for the UAAA team. This age group covers a two year span as does the Highlight division.

As for the argument about why B Kelly was selected as coach of the year....it just might have something to do with the FACT that he's the head coach of a team that won the MIAA A championship this year.

Stop hating.

. Ok hating at all. I don't give a rats [lacrosse] if he won the MIAA A championship, he is a sneak, liar to you face and is now the holdback king of club lacrosse. He is just as bad as Ryan M of Crabs. Ask around, away from CH or that fake FCA, and you will hear what B Kelly is really like and thought of. Plus he enjoys a low lacrosse IQ. He wasn't the reason CH won. Now the above is FACT. Sorry to bust your bubble.

Re: Boys High School - 07/02/17 09:38 AM

Get YOUR facts straight. The Command division is for rising 9th and 10th graders. The Baltimore team has more that shall we say - ehem - a few kids who are reclassed 1 or 2 times. Only in the bizarro world of Baltimore private schools/club lacrosse does this seem normal. More than half the Command could be on the Highlight team. Full beards and driver licenses are the things most of these kids have in common.

Don't be clueless. Lacrosse is not special when it comes to holdbacks. It is just as prevalent in football and basketball, if not more.

What's very funny is that I just watched the replay of the UAAA Command final and one of their players was announced as a 2021 yet my 2020 son has played against him for several years now. Interesting that reclassing is happening in other places too!

It was only a matter of time. Talking with people from different parts of the country about lacrosse ...One thing always seems to come up when teams travel to Baltimore to play in tournaments. The Baltimore holdbacks. Pretty sad ..

More will be doing this.

I ran the B/D's for last year's event for the Command division. Normal shaped bell curve with the median and mode occupying the August/Sept months (Pre-first kids). The Baltimore team was on average 2 months older, with the South team being the oldest. LI team was the youngest.

Ummmm, the median is the middle number in a set. So if all of the kids from Baltimore kids are born in August or Sept and if everyone that plays lacrosse from New [lacrosse] is born between July 15th and July 31st(everything I read talks about how much younger they all are) they would balance out and the rest of the lacrosse playing country would put the median somewhere in the February time frame.

Let me know if I am wrong..But my interpretation is that .

Out of 112 players that are 2019 last year,,,, 34 were heldback, prefirst, reclassed or whatever you want to call it .....Thats a bunch!!

So 30% of players couldnt play if they went by USL age guidelines of Sept 1 or like most schools of a Sept 1 start for beginning of school . I know its HS so age doesnt matter but it looks like reclass works.

Out of 15 players that are 2020 last year ,,, 5 were heldback, prefirst,reclassed or whatever you want to call it.

Thats 33% of players .......

So basically around ONE THIRD of all players in Command last year were heldback!!!!! WOW!!!!

And to add to that, around One third 33% of All players are born From Sept -Dec from both 2019 and 2020..So you have a good shot if you are on the older side for proper age of your grade.


Being older works according to this. At least for UA .. Strong conclusions that if your son is born between May and Aug and you/he is interested in lacrosse...Might want to hold him back!

State law in MD, cut-off date for school enrollment is 9/1...

Original Class of 2020 = September 1, 2001 - August 31, 2002.

I would think almost every team in the Command division was made up of mostly 15 and 16 year olds, and maybe even a few 17 year olds. These are high school grade based teams so the reclass argument doesn't really matter, nobody was breaking the rules unless you're already going into 11th or 12th grades and played down on a Command team. There were many kids who are going to private schools in both the Command division and the Highlight division who were identified by their new year of graduation.

I actually think, lacrosse aside, that the 9/1 start date is good for kids academically as well.

If true..pretty sad state of affairs for Lacrosse when you cant even field these HS teams with mainly age appropriate kids for their grade. I know its HS..but really..this many kids heldback on team?? SAD!!!

This is why we are having an epidemic of players being held back prior to HS to play down. SAD!!!

Most of the true players on that team are going to St. Mary's or Severna Park. Very few to Spalding.

Re: Boys High School - 07/18/17 10:00 PM

Easy to explain. I think "a team that won a title 3 seasons ago" is the key. As in it's in the past. How many championships in how many MIAA years? Additionally "made the playoffs last season" how did that workout for you? Embarrassing and a laughingstock, your defense gave up 22 goals (6-22)!!! Yep. That P.O. game was a real close one, a GB here or there and maybe you only lose by 12 or 15.....comical.

you don't explain that how makes them irrelevant and you probably won't be able to. how is 3 season ago "the past", then you want to ask about the past 30 years, yes they got blown out in the playoff game, but they qualified for the playoffs with a team of juniors and sophomores, so i think they will be in the hunt for the playoffs again this coming season (thus making them relevant), as far as championships I believe it is 3 with 2 or 3 championship game appearances and several playoff appearances with an overall winning record in conference play. you can take all of the jabs that you want (sounds like your kids wanted to go to St. Mary's and couldn't get in) but to say they aren't relevant is just inaccurate.

Hard to hide from those 22 goals given up by your all world defense and goalie. Amusing.......rose colored glasses.

Didn't know Phipps was an all star but he is a good person unlike the vast majority of STM parents.

I continue to be very entertained by the winless Spalding fans who are all puffed up and talking smack because SM lost had a bad loss in its playoff game. It is an odd perspective but I guess its all they have to go with at the moment.

Spalding should hope that most of the Hawks 2022 team goes there. Considering the Hawks 2022 beat the Hawks 2021 6 of the 8 times they scrimmaged this spring. They need the 2022s to mentor the 2021s and pick up their slack.

It isn't a player or defensive unit issue at STM. It is without a doubt a coaching problem. They got out coached time and again in the 2nd half of games. The coaches have the names, but cannot coach. Anyone who has watched them since Ben R. left will tell you that the coaching is bad at best. The boys got to the playoffs in spite of the coaching staff.

Now Spalding, how many years has Phipps been there? And how many MIAA wins? Glass houses. Beware of glass houses. and if you guys do not win this year, it could be some long cold springs before winning has a chance again.

See, all this crap is strictly adult egos and lunacy. The kids at ABS, STM, Severn, SP etc... all just played on the same club teams, had a blast and get along. Most of the kids have friends from each of the schools and support one another. Do they compete like [lacrosse] on the field, you bet. But this chatter is all adult crap.

Just some insider info, my son transferred to Severn this year (we moved from Massachusetts, he played for the UA all American team there and laxachusetts and he's committed to navy, he'll be class of 2019.) he goes to football workouts at Severn too, where there are a lot of young men who also play lacrosse. According to him, they(lacrosse/football players) want to hire Ubriaco, the Assistent Head Coach at Severn. Most of the kids are optimistic about lacrosse at Severn this year (lost a lot of close games to quality opponents) and football (went 6-5 last year, lost 2 out of 5 by 3 points or less, and had about 4 players transfer in to play football on varsity this year.)

Sorry,the kids want to hire Ubriaco, the assistant head coach at Boys Latin, that was my mistake, and no he is on age, he is in the class of 2019 in Massachusetts, severn doesn't play the holdback game.

Severn does have quite a lot of navy commits, I'd say there's about 4-5 on that team.

It would be a surprise if Severn hires Ubriaco. He was Shrivers right hand man for years and was in line to be the next BL coach. For some reason they decided to forgo him and hire their current coach. If BL could not associate him as the head man of there program, Severn should ask some tough questions as to why. The Baltimore people know why, Severn just needs to do their due diligence.

Severn's 2017 poster boy / captain / Ivy League commit was a hold back.

Every School in MIAA plays holdbacks/prefirsts ...It is the degree that they participate that separates the schools.

I doubt he denies it. McDonogh is both boys and girls. Hard to compete against the all boy MIAA schools in Balt County without playing the same game as them.

Funny on Kudda , Booker was interviewing the McDonogh player of game . He heard it was his birthday and adsked him his age. Player said he was Nineteen. It was March.

Yes, he was a holdback. As were all three of that family's kids - including their daughter.
Not something Severn encourages as a strategy to gain advantage.
Holdbacks there are the exception, not the rule.

And BTW - Ivy League. How'd that work out for him? All-around student-athlete leader and great kid.

3. OK, that is true. But he's a really good kid and it worked out great for him.

Prediction for Severn 2018: Regression to the Mean.

Some more holdbacks would definitely help the Admirals.

I was at the Boys Latin Championship game a few years ago. Talking to a few parents from BL about the team. This was prior to youth Lacrosse going grade but MIAA schools were loaded with prefirsts/holdbacks. Parent told me that only one player out there for BL shouldnt be a college Freshman right now.
Most people in Balt didnt care, nor aware of this as youth was age and MIAA only played against each other and other schools like them. Plus it was HS.

Apparently these players growing up didn't have any issue with youth being by age. As that is how they all played in their youth. Once they got to HS they played by grade.

Hardly.. Every year we hear about Spalding, Severn getting ready to make a run. And every year its BL, McD, St Pauls or Loyola ..Gilmans program has been in shambles for years. And St Marys was a one off.

Well age based was U-15, U-13 and U-11 then. So no, it didn't matter because when they held back in 8th grade they were still in U-15. No one seemed to care then.

Do you have any idea how many great players McD and CHC have in the queue? They are recruiting and getting kids committed to top schools. The other schools will have ups and downs but McD and CHC are going to be good, every year, for the foreseeable future.

Spaulding will not see a playoff game thru 2021. McD and CHC too strong. BL has a never-ending supply of talent. SP has it's ups and downs but always better than Spaulding. Loyola and Gilman will be strong over next few years. Even Severn is better. Spaulding may, and I stress, may challenge MSJ. Only John Carroll will be a game Spaulding could win

2021 doesn't matter last year..that was 8th grade. McD easily fills holes in 9-12th with recruitment of top player or players.

It's not about critical mass, it's about alumni support and scholarships. Until MSJ, JC, and Spalding start paying for players (sorry giving support to players), they will always be second tier. The problem is that these schools will give financial support to great poor athletes and so they do have great football and basketball teams, but the lacrosse kids are usually ok financially so they don't get the recruits.

The other schools don't pretend it's about helping the deserving kids and families, they just want the Ws.

He isnt leaving until season is over..So long time to find someone. More than likely new coach will have some ties to Loyola. MIAA coaching is a grind with being rewarded a god like stature in the Baltimore High School lacrosse world.

So, what is about the club team, as opposed to the high school team? Your response was to the question about MIAA B/C versus A. Using the hypothetical of that same player, is he better off starting/playing more for they A team as opposed to riding the bench for the AA team? I assume the answer is yes and that it makes more sense for him on that A team to play against the AA teams in tourneys to get the exposure of the college coaches? We now the drill with D1 and DIII. Do NAIA coaches recruit at summer tournaments? What about MCLA? Do NAIA team give scholarships? Do MCLA teams waive club fees?

Friends has two division 1 commits on their senior class and a top 100 kid headed to Hopkins. I also hear they have some nice young kids coming up. You can get recruited anywhere, if you can play. It's about finding a place where you will become a better player and grow academically and socially.

John Haus, DC at Loyola B to Hopkins and UNC, More kids go straight collegiate positions now rather than go to high school first. More $$ in college coaching now vs. past. Faster path to HC in college.

second question is the question about postion,playing time or how the coach is treating your son?

Playing time questions should only be handled by the player. period. Its about the kids learning to deal with authority figures or even getting cut. I've had kids get cut from JV teams as a freshman only to make all state as a senior and play D1. Getting cut was my son's "fuel" for his high school athletic career. Not a fun time in our home but a great life lesson about taking tryouts dead seriously.

Re: Boys High School - 02/28/18 02:34 AM

Got the advertisement for UA tryouts this summer. Who actually thinks these are real tryouts for all positions.
If you look at the players that make teams, majority revolve around coach and coaches of teams. Not just their players but players they know or other coaches they know.

To me it looks like a tryout for no more than half of the team. The rest are already in the tank. Is my perception right??

If you look at the players that make teams, majority revolve around coach and coaches of teams. Not just their players but players they know or other coaches they know.

To me it looks like a tryout for no more than half of the team. The rest are already in the tank. Is my perception right??

And of course with MD teams the age factor is an issue too. My question is more related to actual picking of players


Well known fact. Many stay away from the Baltimore tryouts for this reason. Your estimate of half is conservative.

Undoubtedly true but shouldn’t a surprise. I think the evaluators try to be impartial but if you’ve watched a kid play or coached against a kid (for a year or years in youth lacrosse), you have seen even more of them than a tryout allows. There are plenty of non-MIAA evaluators but the top players largely play in the MIAA-A and on the top club teams and so aren’t a mystery and hard to disguise them with a number pinney. So it stands to reason that coaches from the top programs have top players there or are familiar with them otherwise. I’m sure the Long Island evaluators and coaches are similar. Team 91/Express etc players from Chaminade or St Anthony’s are not only some of the best players, but likely to be well known to the coaches. Would be true in hockey or soccer I suspect... Is there a hidden bias, all else being equal, if a kid is wearing a Loyola or BL or McD lid vs a Fallston kid? Probably. But it also means that kid probably plays with or against top talent every day which just isn’t true with every team in MD. (There’s a good video on YouTube on the UA tryouts)

Well said and factual. I am an evaluator and your spot on. Comes down to the kids that play against the top competition regularly are given the benefit of the doubt. and 9 times out 10 they are the better players and show it. Just the way it is.

Baltimore tryouts during finals week 5/30-31 5pm -9pm w/ SAT Exam on Saturday. Will be tough during cunch time for these kids. DC's tryout 6/12-13

The problem is people lie, they say we are not looking at the helmet only the pinnie number. I remember five years ago 2 evaluators said my kid on that day was one of the 5 best middies at the try outs, also they tell you if you don't try you can't make team, also BS. All the kids pick were on the Turtles and 91 Orange.

True making the team is a crap shoot if you're not plugged in and elevators know you. However I have heard of surprise picks every year. College coaches do come these evaluations (at least in Baltimore and probably LI, Philly etc) so there is an opportunity to at least be in front of these guys. And it's open to all no matter what school or club...

May be open to all but the team is pretty much decided based on politics and cliques. In Baltimore region it is a waste of time and most kids know that. The "in" kids know they are shoe ins and the other kids who think it is an objective event go and become the token 1 or 2. The quality players without the right last name or legacy stay away as the ball never gets passed and the attitudes are sky high. Better to stay home and hit the wall to prep for team events.

Re: Boys High School - 03/01/18 02:47 PM

Man its only $190. How much field time do you get for this amount? and how many fields are being played on at a time? and how many coaches are really there to watch these tryouts? This might be a good deal?

With the change in recruiting to later years, it seems like this is a solution looking for a problem. So my kid's team loses more games in HoCo as an 8th grader, he'll get better for it and the advantage goes away by sophomore year in H.S.

$190 is a waste if the only motivation for participating is making the team. I see UA tryouts as an opportunity to compete against the best kids in the region. If a kid plays like one of the best the college coaches in attendance will take note - even if he doesn't make the team. And if he doesn't he'll know he has work to do

Re: Boys High School - 03/02/18 02:03 AM

You get an awesome t-shirt for $190!

All kidding aside I thought it was a good event (DC). I would say that the evaluators have their team already set, so the outsiders (public school and mostly on age kids) have a very remote chance of making the final roster unless they are really exceptional and have an opportunity to shine. The evaluators are primarily the private school (IAC & WCAC) coaches and they know all of the private school kids. I would agree that most of those kids are the best players, so it is hard to argue with the results and final roster. A lot of talented kids to choose from for the final roster.

Attended the DC UA tryouts last year and my son was selected to play in the final cut down game, but did not make the final UA team representing DC. Which was fair! I thought he deserved to be in the final cut down game, but did not standout well enough to make the final roster. A moral victory I guess! He is a on age, public school kid and is committed to a mid-level D1 program. It was a great event to gauge his abilities with his peers. Especially for the public school kids that aren't blessed with the daily competitive environment that the private kids are exposed to.

There were three or four preliminary games then approximately 40 kids are selected to play in the final cut down game before the final roster is chosen to represent your region. I think there were about 200 kids trying out for each team of rising 9th/10th graders and 11th/12th graders for DC.

He isnt leaving until season is over..So long time to find someone. More than likely new coach will have some ties to Loyola. MIAA coaching is a grind with being rewarded a god like stature in the Baltimore High School lacrosse world. Well it is if you win constantly, if not prison wardens have better things said about them.

Question has any MIAA Head coaches gone on to coach at College Level?


John Haus, DC at Loyola B to Hopkins and UNC, More kids go straight collegiate positions now rather than go to high school first. More $$ in college coaching now vs. past. Faster path to HC in college.


There have been a ton of assistant coaches go on to the college ranks, the question was MIAA Head Coaches, John was also head coach at Washington College and now Lebanon Valley

He isnt leaving until season is over..So long time to find someone. More than likely new coach will have some ties to Loyola. MIAA coaching is a grind with being rewarded a god like stature in the Baltimore High School lacrosse world. Well it is if you win constantly, if not prison wardens have better things said about them.

Question has any MIAA Head coaches gone on to coach at College Level?


Ubriaco is new coach for the Dons

May be open to all but the team is pretty much decided based on politics and cliques. In Baltimore region it is a waste of time and most kids know that. The "in" kids know they are shoe ins and the other kids who think it is an objective event go and become the token 1 or 2. The quality players without the right last name or legacy stay away as the ball never gets passed and the attitudes are sky high. Better to stay home and hit the wall to prep for team events.

The evaluators are primarily the private school (IAC & WCAC) coaches and they know all of the private school kids. I would agree that most of those kids are the best players, so it is hard to argue with the results and final roster. A lot of talented kids to choose from for the final roster.

Attended the DC UA tryouts last year and my son was selected to play in the final cut down game, but did not make the final UA team representing DC. Which was fair! I thought he deserved to be in the final cut down game, but did not standout well enough to make the final roster. A moral victory I guess! He is a on age, public school kid and is committed to a mid-level D1 program. It was a great event to gauge his abilities with his peers. Especially for the public school kids that aren't blessed with the daily competitive environment that the private kids are exposed to.

There were three or four preliminary games then approximately 40 kids are selected to play in the final cut down game before the final roster is chosen to represent your region. I think there were about 200 kids trying out for each team of rising 9th/10th graders and 11th/12th graders for DC.



Anyone know whether the NXT Baltimore Showcase June 14 @ Towson U is quality event? I know their Philly showcase gets a lot of college coaches. This one was new last year. Would it be a good one for mid D1 or D2/3 prospects?

There is no one that has a detailed lacrosse recruiting website like Xanders. Just cause you dont like him ( did your holdback kid get overlooked) doesn't mean his site isn't informative. Like all recruiting websites, he gets it right sometimes and other times, not so right.
And for Xanders to say something about overage private school players is something. That means it is out of hand as most of us can see. His main emphasis is on private schools and their players.

Confirms what most of us think. The players are already picked. Its just a tryout for a few players. Your approach is a good one. Does let some players go against outstanding players they would normally not see. $190..is probably worth it just for that.

.. it was pretty comical listening to Shriver an Corrigan stressing the freshmen or sophomore grade of some of the BL players ...minor detail that maybe 1 was a true sophomore or freshman age wise. Better to remain silent about grade as everyone knows the real deal. At least in college they refer to players as "redshirt freshman" , "5th year senior" etc.

Re: Boys High School - 03/09/18 02:27 PM

It's HS. Who cares how old they are? As long as they aren't 19 when they start their senior year it's within the rules. BL has an amazing load of talent in the current sophomore and freshman classes. I get that complaining about the holdbacks in middle school grade based lacrosse. So what is a freshman went to prefirst and is 16? That means they are the age of a normal sophomore playing against a lot of juniors and seniors. My son is on age, but this whining is ridiculous. They're in high school.

Well you are correct but also missing some of the point. How many people on this site know of a High school coach or college coach who had their own kids reclass/ start school late at any sport not just lacrosse? I can think of at least 4 coaches I know of. Now ask yourself why would people in the know reclass / start kids late? They know how this game works. If you reclass you get 20 to 40 more Varsity games played. Because you are really 15 and a half as a Freshman you get on the field your first year in high school. The 14 year old freshman has to play JV lacrosse. Do you think it helps to get that top D1 spot when you get to say you are the schools leading scorer or near the top of the list at these better programs? My point being the advantage does not go away when high school starts.

Re: Boys High School - 03/15/18 11:42 AM

Now that is funny. BL started the holdback and has perfected it. They began allowing holdback transfers in the 80’s and 90’s... way ahead of their time. When St Paul’s joined the party, they began doing it earlier and more often. BL remains the ONLY school that will allow a kid to do the same year again at their school when there is no academic justification whatsoever. The result is their athletes hold back early and often and across the board are a year older than a normal student.

I heard about the drug issue in Anne Arundel County and this is proof that the issue is REAL. Lol

.500? Please tell us what league games they will win. Out of the 10 A league games I see 2 wins.

And don’t include the 2 B league games. Joke

DeMatha? Rabil must have played.

Big Changes? If I was the AD I’d start with the coach. 16 wins in 3 years is not good. 6 wins tops this year.

Maybe hire “Bigsy” from API.

We really should get back to talking about relevant MIAA, WCAC, and IAC programs.

Better take his son to Calvert Hall or ask Spalding to move down to the B league.

Please know the history of the league before you come on here with pipe dreams.

You got that right!! The attack will be lead by Sasquatch , Nessie and Yeti !! They are strong tall and unstoppable . Some claim they are re-classed...but I have from good sources they only did a prefirst.

The two new coaches D B Cooper and Teddy Kaczynsk are probably the smartest coaches in the MIAA league.

Spalding has the best 2021 Goalie
Spalding will have the best kids from the 2022 Hawks who are the best team in the country. They have the 3 Hawks defense starters. The best 2022 faceoff guy in the country, the Hawks best middie and the Hawks 2 best attack. All from the best team in the country. More coming. Remember the 30 mile rule. They will poach top McD and BL kids plus a few out of state surprises.

1)Believe me- no one is listening to you . MiAA Varsity is not the same as 8th grade club. When Spalding wins more than 1 game in league play then we all wil congratulate you.,
2) way to sell out the teammates of the 2022 Hawk team- lacrosse is a team game last everyone checked - they don’t win games with out the rest of the team.
3) Coaching at the Varsity level wins games and most importantly it loses games. There has been a ton of loaded teams that never won anything. Know the history of this league -
4) championships are won by Baltimore teams with St.Marys adding 1 every 10years or so.

Current freshman were in sixth grade the last time Spaulding won a conference game on the field.

Just a few days ago they lost at home 16-1 to a middling Dematha team.

And now a bunch of spoiled 14 year olds and their helicopter dads are going to turn around this decades-long train wreck?

They will be lucky if they don't get relegated back to the B Conference.

The one faceoff guy is but the better one who came from API is going to spalding. The attack going to St Johns is very good but 5th or 6th best attackmen on that Hawks team. Yes, St Johns picked up great Hawks kids

I find it interesting that some of the UA "lock picks"/IL top 20 players from the 2020 class are not cracking their varsity starting line ups. How can you be "deemed the best in the country" at your position and not starting on your HS team? Something isn't adding up.

It’s actually simple. HS coaches know these kids and know the leagues they play in. Number of upperclassman who are already committed as well. Playing a few minutes in Varsity game vs every minute of Jv. Those kids are getting better all year long and will be a force when it’s time.
UA is great and all but the evaluations are nothing like your HS coaches .

You can only pretend to be something your not for so long.

Brutal commentary
Who is pretending anything with that program? They won consistently at the B level which makes them eligible to move up. What else did you notice about them? Do you have a kid that plays there? Every MIAA A teams schedule a ton of out of league games. Thats how the season works. Im not sure anyone thought they were going to come storm the league. Since you are an expert, there is more than a few A teams that go without winning a single conference game each year. Give it a few years and see what happens. What is your issue with the program? Pretty sure no one else has the anger and dislike you clearly have for a program that is in its first year in the conference. Sad commentary and a bit cruel.

Pretty impressive showing by both Gilman and MCD yesterday. Look for both of these teams to fair better than some had expected. Gilman has a nice FOGO, strong first line middies and a solid D. MCD hasn't played full strength yet as they've been without their top middie and FOGO for both the Chaminade and Culver games. How Gilman and MCD fare vs CHC and SM will be an early indication regarding where these teams will end up.

Bashing aside -- IMHO John Carroll will likely have a good, perhaps not great, program going forward. Lacrosse in the Hereford area recreationally has grown by leaps and bounds and those kids are getting good coaching at the different levels of play. Hereford HS has been a solid performer in recent decades, and Fallston HS is a powerhouse and regularly challenges for State titles. Having the opportunity to play on the "A" level at a conveniently located school in North Hartford County combined with the fairly reasonable tuition at JC might provide a very effective recruiting platform where better club players end up there, pass on their local public high school, and thereby raise the already good baseline of JC and make them competitive. I would not write this program off, and can certainly see a path where they might improve -- but at the expense of the local public schools.

Yeah I guess people don't realize that Hereford and Harford County are two completely different things. If Hereford kids are going to private school they drive down 83 to BL, Gilman, CHC or Loyola.. Why make the same drive just to go to JC?

Bashing aside -- IMHO John Carroll will likely have a good, perhaps not great, program going forward. Lacrosse in the Hereford area recreationally has grown by leaps and bounds and those kids are getting good coaching at the different levels of play. Hereford HS has been a solid performer in recent decades, and Fallston HS is a powerhouse and regularly challenges for State titles. Having the opportunity to play on the "A" level at a conveniently located school in North Hartford County combined with the fairly reasonable tuition at JC might provide a very effective recruiting platform where better club players end up there, pass on their local public high school, and thereby raise the already good baseline of JC and make them competitive. I would not write this program off, and can certainly see a path where they might improve -- but at the expense of the local public schools.


No comment on John Carroll, but don't think many kids are going to drive from Hereford Zone in Baltimore County to Bel Air to attend school.

Cheaper tuition, better chance of cracking the lineup.

I think it was more of the battle at the face off x. Severn' navy commit Jacob Jarosz won 23 out of 26 total face offs which ended up with severn dominating time of possession.

BL lost to Gonzaga. Lost the second half 9-2 I think. With MIAA play starting this week they need to get going. Seem to be over rated in the polls.

As Club Lacrosse filters out to many other areas , the MIAA will not be near as dominating as it has in past. No to say it will not have great players and great teams. But the day of dominating every team is over. Players from everywhere are getting great training and traveling to play other good teams. The college landscape is changing along with it. Many teams have players from all over the country now.

Tough to make that sort of comparisons with the bottom feeders. Spalding is barely hanging on as a member of the A conference and Loyola might have already quit on their coach which is ironic because he is quitting on them.

I watched the defending WCAC champion get absolutely dismantled by St. Mary's a couple weeks ago.

I thought the MIAA was arguably the toughest league out there but I am from LI so I could have heard that from some bias friends. Where do you go to find Maryland/VA High School lacrosse scores?

The MIAA is the toughest league around. These people are crazy. Sure teams lose from time to time. But no public school would have a winning record in the MIAA. Not even close.

Of course they wouldn’t as no public school actively recruits players for high school sports, offers scholarships or provides the ability to hold players back. The coaches also coach mainly for the love of the sport/kids and are of a different background than the private school coaches. It takes a lot of resilience for an elite public school kid to pass on the private schools who come calling. It is rarely a funding issue as the best are offered full tuition at certain schools. More power to those kids. The discussion was not whether the public schools teams would have a winning record but they do have quite a few very talented kids who can help cause an upset here and there and when that happens they should be applauded as they do it with a different foundation.

Talking pretty tough and predicting a 4-6 conference record. Understand that this would recommend a high water mark for a moribund team. Still pretty funny.

"New Cut" is that a fancy word for Glen Burnie?

Let's unpack this situation...

Heralded recruits (and their dads!) arrive at "New Cut" this fall. This has happened before. In fact, when those stud 2022s roll up to school they will be greeted by a set of hyped but under-achieving upperclassmen whose dads had hand-delivered THEM to Spaulding just a couple years ago.

So now you have a caustic mix of daddy coaches and daddy boosters, none of whom have a long-term connection to the school and all of whom either left somewhere else disgruntled (Didn't like the coach. Didn't like playing time. Were not asked to coach, etc.) OR are so new to the sport they are clueless about Spaulding's reputation (on and off the field).

Mix in a young coach who is deeply wound into the club system and everything positive and negative that comes along with that. Oh, by the way, the coach is a Severn alum and will eventually end up back there (let's be real about it).

Sounds like a soap opera I can't wait to watch unfold over the next few years. Please keep Severna Park on the schedule.

Easy there girl. Just cause you couldnt get in, doesnt mean that you can trash the school you know nothing about. Study hard and try again next year. Academics and MIAA lacrosse at Spalding just may not be for you. Everyone has a place in society, yours may be home schooling and badmitten.

Re: Boys High School - 04/14/18 07:40 PM

The Hawks 2022 team are so good for a couple reasons. First off, they practice more than everyone else. That's great that the parents are willing to get the kids there so many days a week year round, but in high school everyone practices the same amount amount so that advantage is out the window. Secondly, they have a ton of holdback kids. That advantage is also gone in high school. Every year we hear about how all these great club 8th graders are coming to Spalding. And every year Spalding stinks. It's a crappy public school charging private school prices. The real talent will always head up to Baltimore or down to DC.

That would be hilarious if Ripley takes over at Spalding. I honestly hope that happens for the comic relief.

plenty of Hawks at both schools, but definitely a change in 21 and 22 classes.
a few reasons for the change,
one dad took his ball and went home when he didn't get his way at Saint Mary's
one dad tried to package a coaching deal if his son went there

i'm sure there are many other myriad reasons and I'm sure we will read about them in the next two pages
