Million has the 2023 championships scheduled already.

Is he keeping the 2022 championships for a 3rd year?

Will the 2024 great 8 tourney survive another year as well?

I hope all three happen this summer.

Will the 2023 91 MD 2023 team be playing in it?

If he does lets hope the brackets are seated better than this past year!1

This was actually a nice tourney.

Millon will do what he always does; bring kids in from Texas and put his team in the easiest bracket. If this is a legitimate 2023 Tournament and looking at the best 16 teams in the country; 91 2023 MD should not even be considered.

Who will be the 16 to represent the 2023 National Championship Tournament?

ease up! officiating was very biased. conflict of interest exists when a tournament participant operates the tournament

Let's be clear, it is not an "age group", it is grade-based. Big difference. US Lacrosse sanctioned tournaments will be the future

Not when the clubs refuse to form age-based teams.

Wanna bet! Despite what you may think, MD does not rule the lacrosse world. Holdbacks will be able to play in their grade at school, but will be required to play on age in club ball. Playing fields will be level

Bet all the money you want. If you think this only happens in MD your mistaken. US Lacrosse tried to derail it numerous times. WSYL also tried last year with this age group by changing the cut off date after all the try outs ended and teams finalized .Finalized by using WSYL age previous age cut off. Which is why top teams from MD and other states did not attend. MM tournament had the best teams playing each other. Which is exactly what every top coach wanted. I do agree that the refs where very biased especially in the playoffs. Every game was very competitive. EVERY TEAM had at least 1 holdback . If you want to play Elite level and try out and pay the money you don't get to bash the system you agreed to play under. There is a ton of other very good AA ,REC teams and leagues to join. ELITE teams do play on a level playing field. Im sure everyone agrees change needs to be made but until then it is what is.

Elite teams that play grade based lacrosse are not on a level playing field. If you can put a player that should be in the 11th grade on the field with on age 9th graders - that is a HUGE advantage. Happens all the time in Maryland. Crabs, FCA, etc. thrive off it.

Many of the kids reclassing are doing so because they are late bloomers and do want to compete with kids the same size speed and strength. Should they be allowed to reclass?

So now we have moved on from the holdback law to the double holdback theory. Sure, Scrooge, Jason, and Freddy Kruger all held their kids back twice. I am sure that they were all willing to pay two additional years of "elite" school tuition - in Maryland, no doubt - given all of the residual checks they have coming in.

Can we just stop with the holdback nonsense? Let this Maryland forum remain pure of lacrosse heart, a place where we talk scores, strategy, and game play. A place where us enthusiasts can go to escape the incessant whining we see over in the grade based forum. Okay, this may be too big of an ask, so can we just dispense with the crying and complaining?

My boy only cares about wins and losses. He has never come to me complaining about the age or size of his opponents. He has, however, asked me how he should play a particular situation or player who is much bigger than he is because he simply wants to do well on the field. He wants to compete, win and learn like all of your kids, but you all want to come on here and whine about how tough the lacrosse world is for Little Freddy. Please just stop it!! Help your kid be the best that he can be in any on field situation and shut up about the rest. I hope that the most of are as sick of this !@#$ as I am. Stop making excuses for why your child can't see the field and help him develop. Learn the game so that your able to assist him. Get up a 5am and workout with him. Do what you need to do, but please go back to the 2022 forum if you want to whine.

Do you complain this same thing for basketball season, football . You clearly give your kid every excuse in the book. There is 13 year old boys on the football and basketball teams that are bigger than most adult men. Most big adult men. What do you tell your kid during those sports. 1 year difference with boys has such as big maturity difference even boys the exact same age the difference can be huge. My son will never complain or back down from either. Especially with high school is right around the corner

“We don’t bring in 30 teams because I don’t think 30 can win it, I do think however there are 16 that can. We have a neutral and experienced selection committee, a spectacular venue, it is going to be another really exciting championship.” said Mark Millon, event founder.


I wonder which 16 Teams MM will be inviting?

Everyone should just keep their mouths shut until all of the rosters are posted. Rumors, etc will be laid to rest and you freaks who constantly look up rosters can argue about which kid went there and how that team is now going to dominate, yadda, yadda, yadda, yadda, yadda, yadda until the moon goes down. I guarantee you care about this sh*t more than your kids do.

The holdback issue makes lacrosse a joke to many people that do not play it along with many in the sport. Youth sports was never made to give an advantage to select kids that are heldback for whatever reason. Its a huge advantage while young and gets less as you get older. There will never be a stoppage of people voicing their opinion on how wrong this is. It is wrong and common sense tells you it is.

Even in HS there is some advantage when you are grouped with you grade. Look at the UA tryouts. The 9th and 10th grade teams are overwhelming holdbacks in areas (Balt, DC, Philly) where this is common. It is so bad this last summer that even the guru of recruiting Xanders complained on twitter about how someone had to get this holdback issue under control. That is pretty bad when he says something!

I was thinking the same thing! In one sentence you're saying "how could team 91 know they are the best team"... "the season hasn't started but Looney's is the team to beat". This just shows the caliber of parents on this forum!

Again not knowing the movement of anyone but Looney's I am not sure how you can even make that statement. Sorry I disagree that your sons team is the LIKELY team to beat since the season starts 8 months from now and no one has played a single game. Good Luck Looney's dad.

Because 91 should have been a B team last year and went 0-6 in HOCO. They have lost kids from a team that went 0-6. How could they possibly be more than a B team this year?

I did not say Looney's "is" the team to beat. I said "likely". That is based on the movement I know about. My point was more how could someone say 91 md was a B team without seeing the teams play this year. Sorry I didn't pick your sons team as the potential team to beat.


Because 91 should have been a B team last year and went 0-6 in HOCO. They have lost kids from a team that went 0-6. How could they possibly be more than a B team this year?


What did they lose and where did they go? There was definitely some talent on that team last year just not enough of it to compete at a AA level.

And this is how a lacrosse forum is started! To give all of these parents who feel so strongly about their opinions an anonymous place to express them. Clearly the only thing wrong with this sport is the loser parents who don't have enough guts or class to stick up for their kids to a coach instead of an anonymous forum.

Could be but my son was at those tryouts and trust me when I say it was one of the worst run tryouts my son took part in this year; coaching is an obvious issue here. Completely unorganized and we chose not to come back for day 2. I would also say if the kids that left made Crabs, FCA and Looney's AA teams......the new players more than likely are not as talented. This club as it stands is an A/B team based on what I saw.

Mark Millon is insane; plane and simple. Anyone playing for him will soon learn how miserable of an experience it will be! Unbelievable knowledge but has no clue how to coach or speak to kids; embarrassing to say the least.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Team 91 MD - 09/12/17 10:24 PM
My son has played for Mark for four years. Is he tough? Yes. Is he demanding? Yes. 90% of our players have been with him for that long and my son, for one, will give him 100% credit for his evolution into a very good player. If it were the misery slog that outsiders describe, kids would leave but they don't because they love playing with each other and they really enjoy the results of their hard work. I'm sure true for players on Hawks, Madlax etc... where I think there are a lot of outsiders looking in and making absurd criticisms.

For the person who keeps talking about the Texas kid. When did Texas become such a power house in lacrosse that your so worried? Maybe he wants to become a better lacrosse player and his parents have the means to have him play in MD. BTW. He was on the roster all year.

It becomes an issue when 91 is paying for flights but doesn't have money for practice fields for the non chosen teams come summer time. It isn't a well kept secret that the club is flying the kids in.

Break his arms is not screamed out on the field by any decent coach. Only morons scream that. And knock his block off isnt screamed out on the football field by any modern coach. Only morons do that .

Ladies and Gentlemen I give you the Team 91 Philosophy; WIN AT ALL COSTS. No reason to teach these young impressionable young men; who are 10 to 14 years of age mind you, how to overcome major obstacles; including bouncing back from mistakes both on and off the field, good sportsmanship, how to be humble in victory and defeat, to teach resiliency, to prepare them for life's challenges or how to simply have fun playing the game they love......NO at Team 91 we will just use your $1800-2500 fee to fuel the jets and fly kids in from Texas to so we can WIN. Oh MM you sir where have you gone?? Good Luck 22 and 24!!

Seriously people -- it is about the "Millon" brand. This organization is "Team 91" in name only. MM is about MM, and his focus is on himself, his kids and his business. Whether he screws Breakers, Team 91 or anyone else in his way is to be expected. So, bringing in kids from out of State, or out of the country, or from another planet -- if it enhances in his opinion -- his brand, his business future, and his oh so fragile ego, is to be expected. It is NOT about winning at any cost. Rather, it is using winning at absurd costs and abandonment of any sense of values, that serves his real purposes. That we all pay absurd amounts for his gaming -- as is the case with Crabs and other elite organizations that are brand centric -- is the American way. Good business plan, with an abundance of clients who are too self absorbed to figure it all out.

Kids are leaving. And coaches. Maybe that's why only 19 kids tried out for the 2022 team this year.

My son playED for the 2022 team. I have stood on the sideline and heard him say this exact statement among other things to his 2022 players first hand. My son has told me many other inappropriate things he has said at practice or during games to his players. A video of it was posted that clearly had his voice saying it, but he had youtube take it down. You just cant play it off and its a truly pathetic to put it on the other 91 coaches. Most of the 91 assistant coaches I have spoken with are embarrassed by his behavior and I'm guessing you know that. You probably also know that is EXACTLY why two of his 2022 assistant coaches left as soon as the 2022 Championship game was over. The damage control on inappropriate behavior needs to come from MM not you. Or else he is going to make you look like a complete stooge in a couple months.

Texas parent here whose son plays on MD 2022 team with MM. For the record, we pay for tuition, our OWN flights and try out for the team, no free rides, sorry to disappoint. I bet that is a shocker to you all. To your surprise, Texas is no hot bed for lacrosse, though there are some great teams and players, that is why we have made the decision to travel to MD, as well as LI, to expose our son to the best competition. For those that are upset that boys from TX travel to MD to play on teams that they try out for and make, since when do you decide who can and can't play on MD teams. Through Team 91, our boys in Texas have been trained by both NY and MD coaches. On these occasions, several of the boys have had the opportunity to try out and play with NY and MD teams. A few of us, who can, want our sons to have a better lacrosse experience, so what is the problem?

You guys should not worry about anything. Your 8th graders will soon go to a public or private HS that has a lacrosse team, they will practice 5-6 days a week, get quality coaching/training and play against top talent every week. Meanwhile, my son, who lives in TX, will go to a HS that does NOT have a school sanctioned lacrosse team. Will not have anything close to the coaching your kid receives and will continue to play in a recreational club environment. So, my apologies for wanting my kid to get the best training and experience in MD while he can.

I'm not on the sidelines with the team, so I can't confirm or deny what MM has said. What I can tell you, is that Mark has provided an awesome opportunity for my son and has been open and honest with me as well as my son. We have enjoyed getting to know our MD families on our team and most importantly, my son has made some pretty cool friends during this experience.

Instead of coitizing MM and his program, cheer on your kid’s team and don’t worry about what Team 91 MD is doing. Each of us are doing what we think is best for our sons. Better yet, look for me on the parent sideline to say hi and chat, us Texans are pretty-friendly!

Mr. M

If MM weren't such a detestable person, no one would care what he did. Because he is such a lunatic, his every move is scrutinized and your kid and his TX buddies are just collateral damage. No one has any animosity toward any of the kids on Team 91 just like there was no animosity toward the Breakers kids before Millon raided their cupboards. I hear a lot of kids moved on from that 2022 91 team and if that's true, that says more than all the posters on this forum.

No, of course not. However, I also do not want my children to walk away from employers and organizations in the manner you have. There is something to be said for moving on peacefully.

Meanwhile, my son, who lives in TX, will go to a HS that does NOT have a school sanctioned lacrosse team. Will not have anything close to the coaching your kid receives and will continue to play in a recreational club environment. So, my apologies for wanting my kid to get the best training and experience in MD while he can.

I'm not on the sidelines with the team, so I can't confirm or deny what MM has said. What I can tell you, is that Mark has provided an awesome opportunity for my son and has been open and honest with me as well as my son. We have enjoyed getting to know our MD families on our team and most importantly, my son has made some pretty cool friends during this experience.

Instead of coitizing MM and his program, cheer on your kid’s team and don’t worry about what Team 91 MD is doing. Each of us are doing what we think is best for our sons. Better yet, look for me on the parent sideline to say hi and chat, us Texans are pretty-friendly!

Thank you for this post. Kudos to you for making the commitment to play for an out of state team. It is 100% understandable to look out of state when in state isn't able to provide you with the level of play you are looking for. I can only imagine the stress it puts on your family, with all of the travel and time and money. Welcome to Maryland. Good luck to your son this coming season. I hope he has a good one with the team.

1. Everyone is allowed to spend their money the way they see fit, or have your son play for whomever you want.

2. Did you not see the video of the Madlax game where MM is heard telling his kids to break the kids arm?

3. MM is a jerk and a terrible role model. If you want to compromise your family values and give your money to MM and have your son be a part of his team, that's your call, but don't expect people to exempt you from criticism

4. There are plenty of great Texas teams and coaches. That is disgusting the amount of money you spend to travel up here. Why not have your son play for a great team in TX and give the money you would have given to MM, and give it instead to charity that can actually do good.

Mr. Texas M,

What do you think about MM telling his kids to break a 5th grader's arms? Must feel good having your son play for this guy.

Yeah, there are coaches from B'more and LI all over...even Tay-haas.

You don't have to leave your state to find a group of re-classed horses that can ball.

Texas Mustangs...formerly the Texas 3D Team is a prime example. They flew into MD for Crab Feast and whooped up on a lot of local teams.

he wont have to play in Texas, there are plenty of MD high schools that he can either live with the coaches or board at the school, just not sure your in the right program to make that happen unless he likes Gilman

You are a [lacrosse]! Move on ..... its been confirmed that MM was not the one that yelled break this arms. AND if you had listened to the tv broadcast of the final four you would have heard it used multiple times throughout the games by the announcers. You are an idiot who never played lacrosse and are posting living through your B level talent son who couldn't cut it at Team 89+2!

Anybody that has seen the video can clearly see that Millon was the one that yelled "break his arms." But let's say for the sake of argument, he didn't yell it. Instead the coach standing directly next to him yelled it. Does it really make it any better that Millon would permit one of his assistants to yell the same thing??

How about the [lacrosse] comments? The 9th grader comments? The "you won't make it at the next level" comments? No matter how disgusting lacrosse has gotten, it is still not ok to bully a kid on the other team.

Agree. We all know who said it..Even if it wasnt..It was the coach next to him., Who tells a 5th grader to break another 5th graders arms??

Nobody "deserves" more PT because they've been around longer. It's a meritocracy. The best players play. If you're steaming on the sidelines because the kid doesn't play, tell him to get better.

What a nightmare dad. Playing time is not determined by who attends more practices.

MM does not insist that players try out that he knows are good enough to play and start. He'd prefer it but is not unreasonable given summer vacation schedules. Also relevant to the earlier posts re number of kids at MD91 tryouts. He gives a couple kids he knows very well a pass.

What color is the sky in the world you live in, because last time any person with even half a brain checked, life ain't fair. You don't like it, tell your kid to get better to take playing time away from the kid. Otherwise shut it.

Which is it? MM is a jerk for being too tough on his players. Or MM is enough of a talent evaluator to know that very good players will still be very good players two months later and shows some heart due to family commitments. Do you think MLax or 91 Long Island or Hawks will cut their top kids if they have a conflictfoe tryouts?

Every director is entitled to run his/her program as they wish. At this point -- especially at the older groups (22 through 18) these kids have been playing together for several years (3 or more). MM and others know what they have, what they need, and what they want. The kids that have been with the program for several years have nothing to prove at tryouts. The program director will screen the applicant pool and see if anyone fits his/her needs/wants list. That simple. And yes, seniority matters inasmuch as that seniority has helped kids entrench themselves, establish a resume, and track record. Your notion is romantic at best, and not needed.

How does the 2023 team look this year? We all know 22 and 24 will be solid and the 25 team as well. 2023 division seems to be loaded every year and I was curious to see what improvements this team has made since tryouts were held.

Didn't tryout the first year or this year, but TX boys always start the game.


Texas player can come up to Jersey.. we have good coaches and welcome the Hot Moms from The Great State. MD is just pissed off they have to look at "Baltimore Cutesy"



That would be a lot of money to spend to play in the armpit of America! I'm sure the mom's would enjoy getting stared down by all the NJ grease-ball papas.

For those that are upset that boys from TX travel to MD to play on teams that they try out for and make, since when do you decide who can and can't play on MD teams. Through Team 91, our boys in Texas have been trained by both NY and MD coaches. On these occasions, several of the boys have had the opportunity to try out and play with NY and MD teams. A few of us, who can, want our sons to have a better lacrosse experience, so what is the problem?

You guys should not worry about anything. Your 8th graders will soon go to a public or private HS that has a lacrosse team, they will practice 5-6 days a week, get quality coaching/training and play against top talent every week. Meanwhile, my son, who lives in TX, will go to a HS that does NOT have a school sanctioned lacrosse team. Will not have anything close to the coaching your kid receives and will continue to play in a recreational club environment. So, my apologies for wanting my kid to get the best training and experience in MD while he can.

I'm not on the sidelines with the team, so I can't confirm or deny what MM has said. What I can tell you, is that Mark has provided an awesome opportunity for my son and has been open and honest with me as well as my son. We have enjoyed getting to know our MD families on our team and most importantly, my son has made some pretty cool friends during this experience.

Instead of coitizing MM and his program, cheer on your kid’s team and don’t worry about what Team 91 MD is doing. Each of us are doing what we think is best for our sons. Better yet, look for me on the parent sideline to say hi and chat, us Texans are pretty-friendly!

Don't understand how this is relevant. It is standard practice at most clubs that not all players need to try out. MM may or may not be a lot of things but, he is knowledgeable enough to see highlights, a kid once or twice and know if he is skilled or has potential. Each team has a personality and sounds like you are not a great fit for the team if you are so frustrated and attacking your sons team mate. This is club. It is not about equal playing time. It is about whoever is the best player in a certain scenario being on the field. MM has no issue with doing that. The high school 91 teams struggle greatly with that concept which has been their downfall along with daddy ball, but he is pretty open about it and he is not there to be your friend. He wants the best team. You chose to stay.

The damage control on inappropriate behavior needs to come from MM not you. Or else he is going to make you look like a complete stooge in a couple months.


At this point anyone parent that would allow their child to play for this organization needs to have their heads examined!! The club is an embarrassment from top to bottom. Wake Up 91 parents; is this the kind of example you want your son to follow??


We choose to have our son play for this club and do not need our heads examined. We have been around the club scene enough with several of our kids and if you are looking for the perfect personality in a Club director, we can tell you that it will not be found at most clubs with access to the best tournaments. If you find a good club director and the coach for your sons team is also a good fit, congratulations. Our son does not play on one of MM teams so can not speak to that but the man has never said a negative word to our son or the other players who train with him through the off season skill and box sessions. Is he the most personable guy? No. Will he go out on a limb for any player who is not his own son? No. The club has quite a few faults as do most. But he is also not the monster these boards make him out to be. We pay for a service the club offers and it has been successful for our son on many levels. There is no perfect club out there. If my son were verbally abused by a coach or we felt that our coach was disrespectful to other teams, we would be gone but that is not the case. We know FCA, crabs and Looneys well and they have coach and other issues at our sons level and we chose 91 as you have chosen the best for your son presumably. To blanket statement an entire club simply shows your ignorance about the sad realities of club lacrosse that if you really son has talent is the world he will live in for many years and as such it is up to you as his parent to teach him the Appropriate example you want him to follow.

Your son does not play for him, he isn't a personable guy, he won't go out on a limb for your kid, but you think it's a stretch that some of these posts about him are false? Go watch him coach a game and report back.

As a matter of fact, if you knew how the club worked, you would know that the teams share fields so we do have quite a bit first hand experience with watching him coach, being coached during skill sessions and have watched many games at tournaments and hoco. If the hoco league had an issue with him and if the refs reported it the way I am sure you believe it to be, they would have banned him from the league and tournaments. You don't like the man, you don't like his teams, you don't like the club and that is fine and there are others that share your views but there are many who do and they would wish you well at another club as you continue to grow in the game with your son. Clearly 91 is not the club for you but there are a lot of good kids and families that you broadly trashed with your words. You seem to be adept at picking apart the bits and pieces of something and that will make your experience and your sons miserable. Your son is watching you as his example remember. We wish only the best for you and your son. Hopefully you will find what works for you.

Better than all three. Should be easy wins. Will score at will,

Rumor is this team is loaded and full of 'studs'; it will be interesting to see how they do this weekend against some pretty decent competition.

Better than all three. Should be easy wins. Will score at will,

Last spring team was 0-6 in HOCO Bethesda Blue 4-2, Club Blue 4-2 and won the championship over Crabs, not sure about VLC but how would those be easy wins and scoring at will?

I’m guessing it was sarcasm but we will know for sure on Sunday. My guess is they go 1-2 or 0-3. VLC which is a top A squad may be their only win.

Good prediction. 1 and 2 but surprised the win was over Club Blue

VLC beat Team91 7-1 and lost to Bethesda 5-2. Looks like Team91 is the single A team.

Club Blue just had a bad day. They only practice 3 times in the fall so they were a little rusty. And I'm not a Club Blue dad but I was at that tourney and saw them play.

I also heard they actually had a few kids from Texas come up; unreal MM. Desperate times call for desperate measures. VLC is surely not a AA; they will even tell you that, and my guess is Club Blue did not have their full compliment of boys for the Falls season.

Not Team 88+3 they just bring in the Texas boys to fill holes; they needed a supplemental tryout in order to field a team in the Fall.

At which age group? 2022, 2024 and 2025 are pretty solid teams. (5-1, 5-1, 4-2 in Hoco league play last year, even better in a few of their summer tournaments). Assume you are referring to the 2023s?

I think the 2025 Team is solid and well coached; 2026 should be playing A along with the 2023. The 2022 and 2024 are very good but at what cost? MM is a win at all cost kind of coach; he preaches loyalty but will cut your kid in a heartbeat; just ask the goalie and FO kids from last year. I guarantee you after the Fall Tournaments he is already looking to replace kids on either of those teams. He forgets there is more to coaching then W's, but it is all about promoting his two boys who are the focal point on each team.

The 2022's got killed by Madlax last weekend and then beat a couple crappy teams. They lost a lot of kids from last year's team and don't be surprised if they struggle in HoCo this year. Lot of good teams out there.

They are still good and will not "struggle" as long as BWI is open and they have all their players. They played with a starting attackman, and 2 unbelievably talented starting defenders missing. Don't underestimate them at all. M is not smart for chasing away 8 players and 2 coaches at the end of last season with his mediocre coaching, anger and constant negativity, but several talented kids returned and maybe, just maybe, he learned a valuable lesson about youth lacrosse. <--Doubt it, but don't underestimate the athletes he managed to accumulate and hold on to.

You are right about everything, except the former 91 goalie and FO kids left M, not the other way around. 91 won 80+% of their FOs the past 2 years and had a dedicated, well-rounded starting goalie. The goalie stopped playing club lacrosse altogether because M made the sport miserable for him. The FO player upgraded head coaches and moved to Roughriders. Everything else in your comment was spot-on.

He said that he upgraded coaches. Reese over MM is definitely that. And while RR does not have many good teams other than the 22s, neither does 91.

Can’t really speak to 2022, but the 2024 squad has an overwhelming majority of the team who has played for, and enjoyed playing for, MM for years with very few kids leaving.

RR 2020 is a competitive team, they lose to the top few teams, but normally light up the second tier teams. They seem to be caught in the middle.

Really? And who does your kid play for? Probably 91 with no other than MM as the head coach. The players that went to RR will increase their lacrosse IQ with quality coaching, will be treated with respect and will be encouraged to become better players and human beings. Not one kid would ever get that from MM. He is a total disaster and really should be banned from coaching youth lacrosse. His behavior is totally unacceptable. He only cares about coaching his kid and if you watch any of his games. all of the offensive plays are designed to go to his kid who plays attack. Really pathetic. Plus the FOGO who went to RR did not play this fall due to a football injury but will be ready this spring.
So again the question, who does your kid play for, 91 or did he get cut from RR? Plus your comment is very close to trashing a kids youth lacrosse team. Your family must be so proud of you.

Thanks genius. Don’t need the video because I was there and my son plays for 91. It wasn’t him. It was someone else, and the kids, speaking for my own, didn’t take it literally because they aren’t morons. Do you think “knock his block off” means an instruction to decapitate a player?

You can cleanly hear him say " here comes the 9th grader " too...or do you deny that too Mark

I think it was more like “oh great, give it to the 9th grader”. Is that phrase really worth relitigating six months later?
Again, I was there. So were two officials who never flagged anyone on the sidelines and presumably heard everything more clearly than any parent or Zapruder video camera operator from across the other side of the field.

I am a Madlax parent that was at the game. It is all in the past. No hard feelings. We have dropped it, and everyone else should too. It was a hard fought game and emotions were running high. It is what passionate coaches do. Madlax's 2024 team has played T91MD several times since, and MM and the rest of his coaching staff were class acts. (Although MM should tell his right close defender that it is not a good idea to yell things at the stands.)

Well said. True for Coach C from MadLax as well, contrary to all the nonsense on here...

2023 finally played a legitimate AA team that had all their players and lost 13-1 against the Hawks. On a positive note they beat South River; a decent A team, 8-7. Guess the Texas boys couldn’t make it this weekend.

He only cares about coaching his kid and if you watch any of his games. all of the offensive plays are designed to go to his kid who plays attack. Really pathetic. Plus the FOGO who went to RR did not play this fall due to a football injury but will be ready this spring.
So again the question, who does your kid play for, 91 or did he get cut from RR? Plus your comment is very close to trashing a kids youth lacrosse team. Your family must be so proud of you.

Why ru so bitter? You sound like some jilted high school teen. Go wash out your drawers so we can all troll in peace

RR's base is public school kids who couldn't make top clubs and parents who can't afford to send them to top private schools. Public school trash kids and families.

91 md holds itself out as an AA team, which lost every game in hoco, but takes pride in a goal victory over a hoco A team. Website material for sure!

Let it go dad and enjoy the club that your son plays for now or cheers for from the bench.
Nobody is claiming this team as world beaters, relax.
Yes they beat the best A team in HoCo last year, I can imagine what you would have said if they lost.

Funny. Didn't you catch the recent articles about the precious private schools you pay for?!? Elitist hotbeds which you are demonstrating so effectively with yoûr comment. RRs base is Howard County public school kids, one of the best school districts in the country and one of the wealthiest per capita. People do not HAVE to send their kids to private in that county as they are already in an excellent academic district.

Probably same guy who likes to come on here and trash the club and MM regularly when he is bored or unhappy with his own situation. Not worth engaging with as he clearly has that as a single goal. Each family will go to whatever club they are most comfortable with for their own reasons and this guy does not get that or perhaps he has not yet found a home and wants to make everyone else miserable with his garbage. Just ignore it.

No reason to leave excellent schools for the sake of a sport and pay tuition or put your kid in a carpool for two hours a day. Playing for your community school has a lot of value to many kids and their families-tangible and intangible. Not everyone feels the need to pay money for a lax education or want the homogenous nature of the Baltimore privates. Those with talent will get found assuming they want to play in college and here is a news flash..not everyone wants to play in college but actually just enjoy the game. RR has had some pretty significant players on their teams. Your broad base brushing of things to support your own agenda gets old - to each their own. There is no right or wrong.

2nd and 3rd tier club ? You clearly are bitter about something. All of there teams play right at the top of what division they are in and the 2022 team is easily top 5 if not 3 in the state. Maybe go back and lookout the record for Howard High School lacrosse over the past 10 years too. Won a state tilted 3 years ago and has been in the mix every year.

Bitter guy is clear about his disappointment in RR and his lack of knowledge about the club and their kids/families. Nothing anyone says is going to matter to him based on his or his sons experience with them. He will learn it does not really matter in the scheme of things but HIS attitude around the fields and other parents DOES matter. So many parents ruin the experience and the opportunities their son may have by thinking their kid is better than they are or by criticizing the better players on the team every chance they get. Every team has at least one. Moving on...

2022 Roughriders has the best coaching around. Maybe 1 or 2 kids tops would make the Hawks who are supposedly the best team. The Hawks practice at least 30 times more and go year round. The Hawks have 10 Holdbacks compared to 1 for RoughRiders. Hawks always struggle against Roughriders.

Didnt the 2022 MD 91 win Naptown? Beat LI Express I think or Primetime.


As far as MM goes he does seem to focus the offense on his son to the detriment of the team. My son played against him at NLF down at IMG last year and the kid couldnt get to the net the entire game. My son is a good D Pole but not great and handled him easily. Saw a ton of better attack at the 22 level that week.

Totally disagree about your negative comments on the player. He is very talented, technically sound and has an extremely high lacrosse iq. A showcase is not the best format to properly evaluate any player, as it is pick-up games and heavily depends on team composition, player chemistry and usually comes down to selfish play. He is one of the best attacking players in the age group and consistently shows it in club play.

Comments about specific CHILDREN are not supposed to be on these forums. We are all sure your son is a fabulous D pole because you have told us he is but putting down another kid to make your own sound better has no place on these boards. As to your other comment, every good coach builds his offense around his best players or sometimes even one player. Most kids tend to do better with their team mates around them rather than at the individual events for many reason but one big one is the teams are not organized enough for real team play with everyone wanting to do their own thing. Every player on a team can not have the offense run through them. Problem is on most teams, parents can not get over their own children not being that "quarterback" to recognize that there is always going to be better players out there and plays tend to go through one or two of the best players that know the plays, have a good IQ, are proven and can close against both good and bad teams within the team environment.

Biggest Money Crab out there is this promotion by 91; this platform was utilized to train the 22 and 24 teams. MM was maybe at 2 or 3 practices the entire season.

Yep. 2023 is a joke. AA? These parents pay exhorbitant fees for the kids to lose every game in hoco but they can say the kids must be AA because they play in the AA division. Daddy coach. Weren’t good in A the year before either.

The bottom left hand picture on that flyer, clearly shows him teaching a 12 year old to cross-check down on the hip-bone of another player. He encourages players to do this sort of stuff off-ball when refs are not looking to "get in their opponents heads"! A picture worth 1000 words.... not limited to, but including "BREAK THEIR ARMS"! If you keep an eye on his 2022 "prized player" long enough, you will see him start to trash talk and do these things when a defender successfully shuts him down. Training the next generation of elite, whiny, lax things.

And the mental abuse these kids endure at every practice and game is a crime. The best player on the team isn’t even MM son; I’ve watched that kid get belittled and humiliated in front of the entire team by this lunatic. MM should be banned from youth lacrosse period!!!

You would think with a good 25 team they would be able to have a 2026 team.

If the kid stays than I’m sure the kid and parents want that style of coaching. If you are the dad than pull the kid. If you’re not the dad that zip it.

The stories of him in practice are legendary for all the wrong reasons. The sideline behavior has been well documented on social media. The incident with the kid on the opposing team a couple years ago was the most embarrassing thing I've ever see, He has clearly not read the "Respect the Game" section of his USL handbook.

That was our response after an unhinged rant* at one of his camps - no more money to MM for camps or showcases. Although did find it amusing to have his right hand man (AS) subsequently try and convince me to have my son join 91. Yeah, no thanks.

*And for those who defend it as a "coaching style"...it had nothing to do with coaching and everything to do with "protecting" his son.

He is one of the most respected coaches around. He is a HOF player. Little respect people.

Hardly respected by anyone in youth lacrosse; he seriously needs to be investigated.

AS is a good coach. My son plays for him on the 26 team. Honestly the problem is the overall lack of talent on the team. Certainly not the coaching.

The bottom left hand picture on that flyer, clearly shows him teaching a 12 year old to cross-check down on the hip-bone of another player. He encourages players to do this sort of stuff off-ball when refs are not looking to "get in their opponents heads"! A picture worth 1000 words.... not limited to, but including "BREAK THEIR ARMS"! If you keep an eye on his 2022 "prized player" long enough, you will see him start to trash talk and do these things when a defender successfully shuts him down. Training the next generation of elite, whiny, lax things.

This is fascinating because 2025 FOGO currently has a fractured hip. MM made him play yesterday anyway. They poor kid could barely hobble off the field. It was so sad.

You have no idea what you are talking about with this picture thing: it is a box flyer. you can moving pick and cross check in box. So, pretty sure he's teaching the young kid how to play the game correctly.

As he shouted out give it to the 9th grader ..the opposing player was a holdback 9th grader his team was playing against..Of course the hypocrite held his son back the next year to be a " give it to the 9th grader". His whinning about his son and the constant give it to him is legendary.

It is almost comical the way he acts and treats players that play with his sons. This I overheard after a game. His son had got a minor injury from a check and sat out last half. Another player scored a couple of goals while in his position. This is exact words I heard. Both players and Dad of player were talking. The Dad told MM his son was happy to score some goals in Victory. The response...just a perfect MM response. He looks at his son and tells him he cost him two goals by pulling him. Nothing to boy who scored them. That sums up his coaching reputation .

Anyone associated with MM and Team 91 acts like a total butthead and this is clearly demonstrated by the response "GO HIT THE WALL". What would you say if this was a sewing team, "go thread the needle".
You people associated with MM and 91 are just a coverup cloud for him and his poor attitude towards others except his prize son, who has been held back at least once.

No bud, need no help there. I would never let a young man be associated with MM, he is the one with several psychological issues. Wait, is this, could it be, MM himself. Wouldn't surprise me.

ok dad, on Sept. 2nd come back here and tell us which Div 1 schools contacted your son. Then, after he selects the ones he wants to visit, tell us which ones made an offer and how much (% of tuition). That will be the true test. And, in case you don't know, your son will be contacted either via text or email @12:01 am Sept 1st, maybe a little sooner that that but it will really get confusing and exciting if he is high on the list of schools you think he is. Trust his head HS school coach, as he can and will be an in between for your son prior to 9/1/21. If it were me, I would not put too much faith in MM or anything he says or does, have seen him in action before and it isn't all out for others.

Never said he would have offers by Sept 2, how much he does or doesn’t get is irrelevant, the point is you don’t have to get cut by 91 to think Millon and Austin are clowns. Even kids like my son who start and play a ton can’t stand those guys nor do I as a parent. I can’t stop any college coaches from contacting those guys but would never ask them to contact a coach on my son’s behalf

Nor did I say he would have offers by Sept 2. It is revelant how much a recruit is offered (again % of tuition) as this is an indication of how much the coach wants the recruit. They will start at a lower % and read your reaction. They usually never give their best offer first unless they are viewing your son as their top recruit. Again, have your son contact his HS coach, do it over the summer and advise him which schools he is interested in and ask if he could be an advocate for him. Most HS coaches will gladly do this as will most decent club coaches. Notice I said decent. Also, the military schools can make contact starting July 1. Sometimes this is a good indicator of how a player is viewed, not only by the military schools but by the top tier Div1 schools. Just something to keep in mind.

Thanks Coach, While MM is a the HOF and AA , he has a terrible reputation among many in the lacrosse community at youth level. If you are willing to put up with his antics ( especially on teams with his siblings) then go for it. I have seen his antics in person at games as have many others, most prefer to avoid it.

If your kid is that good, why stay with those clowns? There are quality teams around with coaches who aren't a-holes all the time, and who would advocate on your kids behalf.

“Break his arms” is a term that has been used in lacrosse forever! Who ever is crushing Millon on this thread must have a son who didn’t make the team or more then likely wasn’t good enough to tryout , How many programs have as many kids going to play top D1 lacrosse as 91? Or better yet how many club teams had as many kids make their high school varsity team, and all played, as freshman. No program comes even close to 91 Md. The complainer’s son, probably the face off kid who quit awhile ago because he couldn’t compete on 22’s . Also how many clubs have helped as many 26’s get into private schools on scholarship then 91 Md?

Ok Mark, are you finish telling so many false stories. The term break his arms has NOT been around lacrosse forever, seems MM likes to use it when his kid was younger and a player from the other team got close to his kid.. PLENTY of other top club teams (from Md. and elsewhere) have a very impressive list of top Div. 1 commits. Many from Md., surpass Team 91 in the total # of top Div. 1 commits. There are also MANY club teams with MORE players PLAYING VARSITY as FRESHMAN, more that Team 91.As far as Team 91 getting many 26's into private schools on scholarships, that is pure BS and you know it. Most of the 26's that you are referring to are reclassing and repeating a year. So, if this isn't MM himself, why don't you get your facts straight before you come on an anonymous board and state so many inaccurate facts. And, why don't you stop trashing other kids on this or any other board. If you are going to state so many falsehoods, have the guts to show your name. Man, you really drank the 91 kool aid. Simply pathetic.

Ok Mark, are you finish telling so many false stories. The term break his arms has NOT been around lacrosse forever, seems MM likes to use it when his kid was younger and a player from the other team got close to his kid.. PLENTY of other top club teams (from Md. and elsewhere) have a very impressive list of top Div. 1 commits. Many from Md., surpass Team 91 in the total # of top Div. 1 commits. There are also MANY club teams with MORE players PLAYING VARSITY as FRESHMAN, more that Team 91.As far as Team 91 getting many 26's into private schools on scholarships, that is pure BS and you know it. Most of the 26's that you are referring to are reclassing and repeating a year. So, if this isn't MM himself, why don't you get your facts straight before you come on an anonymous board and state so many inaccurate facts.

So in hindsight are you saying don’t bother trying out for the 2025 Team 91?I guess I just lost $75 for their tryout fee. Awesome.

"Break his arms" is not some common term in YOUTH lacrosse. It is Hilarious Mr MM to say that. I still like the "Give it to the 9th grader " you shouted to the opposing 7th grader, just class, pure class .

As a father of a former member of team 91 Md I can say a couple things. My son learned a lot from being a part of that program and is very proud to have tried out and made probably the best team around. His experience was positive albeit difficult at times, and it definitely got him ready for HS sports. Love MM, AS and the rest of the coaches or detest them, they’ll make your kid a better player.

my facts are all accurate! You obviously have no idea about anything lacrosse related club, high school or college. “ Break their arms” is used all through lacrosse… even Carc and Quint say it on TV. Name one other club that has as many players who made varsity as Team 91 or as many D1 ( top D1 ) commits. You are a coward posting anonymously and making false accusations about things you have no clue of.

And from a parent of a kid who plays on age/in his actual class I say thank you. Because of all you families (and clubs) who decide to play your over age kids “down” my kid gets to play “up” against them. Who’s going to be better and tougher in a few years?

I know exactly what I am talking about. I am the one who gets them into the private schools and Im not affiliated with 91 and yes I recommend they hold back a year so they can get up to speed acedemically before high school. Typically we are lucking to get 1 out of 35 public school applicants in any private school. Facts are facts! You can go back to your little tizzy rant about Milon but his is the only program in Maryland where we find kids ( multiple) who are capable of making varsity as freshman. I have already heard from numerous top D1 coaches about 91’s 2024s.
I have also helped a few kids from other club teams find a private high school and who played as freshman.

"Gear" is a matter of taste and for many they feel 91's gear is just trashy looking. MM feels so proud of that gear, like he is a top designer of gear but in the long run just plain trashy looking.

If it is his kid getting hit, he loses his mind, tweets, blogs, writes emails, etc. If it is a 91 teammate, it is simply get up or you are soft and you should probably quit the sport. If it is an opposing team, then all bets are off, break their arms. Never seen a coach get into more confrontations with other coaches, officials and parents from his own program.

I guess his parents follow his lead, a 5'4" 2026 dad was going nuts on the sidelines last weekend. It was outstanding, yelling at the other parents & refs, chest-bumping, and high fives. All I could think about was Brad Williams stand up.

I’d take Millon’s kids over any of your three HOF’ers you mentioned. He’s a great coach and parent, along with his wife. His kids are not only talented atheletes but also great students…. unlike the HOF’ers kids.

Most successful coaches,I’m not saying all, are extremely aggressive at times.

Think Tierney, Corrigan and Petro!

Team 91 Md 2024 had 12 Freshman make varsity ( all MIAA ) and played significant minutes on their school team. Nine were new to their private school and 91 assisted each to get into their schools working with the high schools to find the right fight.

2025 haven’t lost a game in a few years (I think their won vs loss is close to 50-0).

2026 is extremely competitive team that continues to get better and with the new additions will compete for the top along with Hawks. Also have already assisted 6 players into private schools for eighth grade.

All other younger teams have excellent players who are competitive now and will continue to grow.

Team 91 is the most competitive club.

We are one of the out of staters that have been mentioned (bitched and cried about forever). We are very fortunate we could move to Maryland and go to a top MIAA school. We chose 91 after doing research on the other clubs in the area and chose 91 for the reason of the facts I stated above.

You are delusional and obviously very envious of Mark Millon. He has built a solid club program in about five years. Please provide us with another Baltimore club teams stats from top to bottom that compare.

You can’t unless they ask you. Sorry there are a bunch of decent lower level clubs for your son.
Looneys, Breakers and FCA might be a less talented players where they’d let your son sit on the bench for $2500.00.
Good luck and let me know if you need a referral.

Don't kid yourself. 91 does not develop players. Their model is addition by subtraction by offering prospective players reduced fees.

Please enlighten us how MM ruined your sons lacrosse career? The one team he coaches is 2025 which is the “1 team based on their winning NLF. Not one kid has left and they are constantly being asked by others if they can join.

I have no kid playing on any club teams but I watch them all.
Looneys is a sh@t show and players are bailing right and left.
FCA refused to play in any of the top tournaments. And their lower aged teams are terrible with Dad’s coaching Daddy ball.
Crabs is a waste of money for any team until the eighth grade.
Hawks is hit or miss.

No one has to "enlighten" you or any one else. It is very obvious who is posting these, it's king Laxxt head himself, MM. He is just plain wrong for any level of youth ;lacrosse and he is not a good ambassador for youth lacrosse.
Now I question you, list the names of all the kids you have assisted in getting a scholarship into a private MIAA school. Only need to do it for the years 2023, 2024 and 2025. Also list all of the MIAA schools. We will be waiting Mark M.

2. FCA plays In all the best tournaments based on reputation
3. Crabs 8th grade teams and above are always nationally ranked
4. Hawks pre high school teams are tops
5. 91 teams are a joke unless MM has a kid on the team

My son plays for 91 and he goes to and starts on a private school team and Millon played ZERO role in him going there. Not a slap at MM because we never asked him to help, but he had nothing at all to do with where mine went, any scholarship or none of that.

Yep, MM can no longer avoid his reputation. Too many other clubs at this time.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Team 91 MD - 08/06/21 04:01 PM
If I recall correctly the "younger clubs" for 91 put up about 3 goals per game, give up about 12 per game, and are known for running 0-4, 0-5, 1-4, etc in tournaments set up by Millon himself.

I mean, continuous failure and trial by fire is one way to grow athletes. Not most athletes, but some I guess.

To be fair I also don't think that qualifies as MM "destroying" lacrosse careers. If your kid is semi-elite and gets sick of losing to elite talent, he can work to get better, get better coaching, or go to another team that will help him do the first two (most likely needs to do all 3).

Haaaa Haaaa Haaaaa! Rig the tournament? Kind of like when MM yells and screams from the sidelines for a call...to the SAME referees that he is paying because it is HIS tournament. How any parent would allow their son around him is beyond me.

It amazes me how little you know about youth lacrosse. All tournaments are rigged (set up) for the host team to make it to the semifinals. If any one disputes this you have no idea how things work. Here’s a shocker all tryouts- UA, Nike and all showcases have their teams picked before tryouts begin and some don’t even show up for tryouts and make the team.
I love having Mark Coach my son. We left another “elite” club to join 91 because of Marks teaching. He is one of the best instructors of the game , if not the best. Ask Grant Ament and a few other PLL players that worked with Mark individually. My son was a slightly below average player, as most kids are, to 91 helping us get him into an elite private school and now being recruited by all the major colleges offering substantial money ( and there’re many others on the 91 teams that feel the same).
Before you bash someone personally, who you don’t know, you should know some basic background facts. Please name me another club that has as many D1 commitments as Team91 2022! Please name the club and number of kids committed. It’s all due to Mark getting the buy in by the kids to want to be better.
I’m sure you’ll come back with the “break his arms” BS. Again this shows your lack of knowledge of the sport. This is an extremely common term when teaching defense in youth lacrosse... similar to ear holing someone in football. Break his arms is mentioned in most TV broadcast by every announcer.
Please grow up and stop bashing someone you don’t know. You are so envious of Mark it’s beginning to look like a one way man crush!

Calm down Mark, Thanks for sharing that information once again. Oh yea, Quint/Amish/Carc always use " Break His arms" during their Broadcast, I always wonder how you state that with a straight face, well, I wonder how you get away with some of your antics coaching youth lacrosse along with the blatant favoring of one player above all others , Then on the other hand, I guess you are just being you !

So your son is in the recruiting process being offered substantial money from all the major colleges? If he's a 2022 then he would be committed already. If he's a 2023 no conversations around money could have occurred.

I've been playing and coaching for close to 40 years at just about every level. I've never ever heard a coach say "break his arms" . Not once ever. Not heard it on a broadcast. Agree that Millon is an excellent teacher of the game, He'd do well to modulate his crazy side - which we all have.

Grow up.... set an example for your kid to grow some balls. I’m sure your kid is pissed now that you pulled him from the team. And you f@clef up your kids chance of playing in the MIAA and he’s stuck playing for Westminster High ( hero on high).

What I find amazing is you attempting to validate the term Break His arms. Nothing like a 10 year old running down the field while an opposing coach yells " Break His Arms" , " Break His Arms" ,, yea, I bet that is the proper term all the parents want used on their 10 year old sons. LOL.

Are there any 91 teams any good outside the two his sons play for?

I lost all respect for the man when he refused to present the Championship to our 2026 team. He presented every team but ours because he was butt hurt. I never seen a man whine and pout like a spoiled brat. We havent played in a Mark Millon tournament since

None. Focus on 2025 & 2023 or whatever the older one plays for this year. He has played 2022, 2023, 2024 & in the early days 2021-hold back 1 year, 2 year....

So your son is in the recruiting process being offered substantial money from all the major colleges? If he's a 2022 then he would be committed already. If he's a 2023 no conversations around money could have occurred.

Yes ... we know who is ponying up in a year!! Academic advisors at his school are already working with him to get the academic scholarships that are available at the schools. It’s pretty interesting how this works. I hope you realize a lacrosse scholarship is very little money. It’s the financial aid and academic scholarships that pay the bills. You can probably count on your hand the actual number of players that received a true full ride scholarship from any school.

Seriously ?? You actually need to ask that. So many people have come forward with remarks about his blatant favoritism. It is a Big Yes.

Frankly most parents know that there will be some, but his is off the charts. One easy quote that was put out was a boy had scored two goals after taking over for his son who had a minor injury. MM told his son in front of the other player, sorry I pulled you, I cost you two goals. Guy is who he is

I cant see how you are confused after reading some of the comments. MM has a history of being everything you do not want a youth coach to be or do. If you are ok with that...go for it. Most arent.. Not about being tough , yelled out, etc,,,it is a basic way to coach youth lacrosse along with the over the top protection, remarks and favoritism to his siblings

Ok .... I remember . Mark isn’t typically around for the younger kids tournaments. Too bad that happened. I hope you give the Millon Tournaments another chance. They are by far the best. Small number of teams, elite clubs and always played at great faculties. I’m only a parent not affiliated with the club.

BS.

D1 has 12 full scholarships split among 45 kids.

You didn’t get a full ride.

Unless your kid got need or academic money, in which case MM didn’t do squat in those departments.

Thanks Coach - you’ve done more to destroy the hopes and dreams of young boys than build them up. Your sideline meltdowns are both legendary and embarrassing. Btw you’re youngest isn’t even the best on the team; maybe you should have someone break that other kids arm.

At one time when Ty Xanders was somewhat impartial , he made a huge deal at the UA event a few years ago about the huge age differences in players in same grade. Even said that it needed to be addressed. The post was taken down after MIAA and local Club coaches ( All with holdbacks/prefirsts) let him know the ways of the MIAA and modern top clubs.

I do find it amazing the difference in ages.

I don’t know about this kid but I received a full scholarship.... all four years! And I said I wanted no roommates, so they gave me my own room from day one. My parents refused to do any financial aid paper work or go for any other form of aid. I only considered four schools and all offered the same. At the time some state universities didn’t allow “tiling “ financial aid.

So please don’t comment on things you know nothing about. You don’t know how every program works the money. So tell your kid to work harder, hit the weights, take supplements , eat right, do you intervals and grow to be 6’3” weigh 210 and run a 4.5 forty.

Was this in the 2000’s? 4 schools offered you full scholarships and a private room? Were you a top 3 recruit? Was it even for Lacrosse? Or , sounds more like Football
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Team 91 MD - 08/13/21 01:27 PM
One of my very first practices in college I cut across the crease twice and scored our head coach (inducted in the hall of fame twice ) went ballistic on the crease defenseman for allowing me to cut through unscathed. He started screaming at the defenseman that if ever an offensive player entered the crease someone better break the cutters arms. To make his point he grabbed the defenders long pole and started beating the defenders arms screaming “break his arms”. He didn’t stop until blood was visible.
Needless to say I never cut across the crease again without looking for a long the long pole.

Break his arms is a common term in lacrosse. So if your kid is a defender teach him how to “break arms”, “chop their legs off”, “ear hole him’, “take his head off”, “break some ankles”, “ send him home in a body bag” etc etc.
There is another Hall of Fame Coach that use to ask his defenders as they came to the penalty box “ did you bring me a piece of the guy” or did you “draw blood”, if the defender said yes coach would say good job and do it again when you get back in.
To the guy who said he’d been coaching for forty years and says he never heard “ break his arms” on what planet and what sport did you coach?

Yes in the 2000’s... just stopped coaching. There are still some kids with full ride lacrosse scholarships.
I was also very lucky mine was also guaranteed until I graduated. Scholarship money can go up or down annually . All schools are different. For example after a year at Utah your tuition switches to the in state tuition rate. When recruiting you need to know the schools you are competing with and how they can shuffle their dollars.

Ty Xander’s went to St P and I’m sure he knows the ins and outs of the MIAA. Your obsession with hold backs is border line psycho !! The extreme age gap is caused by the public school parents who fast track their kids into school early for the free day care. This is why the true hold backs was created. If and when these kids are recruited or apply into a private they are so far behind academically because of the lousy public school education they are held back in order to catch up academically and age.

Your obsession with defending kids that are over a year older than other youth players is border line crazy. The laughable line that holdbacks are created by public school children goes beyond any imaginable excuse. LOL ..

MIAA schools are the holdback engine of Baltimore. Always have been, Nobody even cared until all the little prefirsts/holdbacks/reclassed wanted to play down against the on age public school kids and fellow MIAA on age players, This came with explosion of grade base lacrosse. Until then the holdbacks played each other, no one cared.

The top private schools have always had an older entry date then the public schools.
Historical research/data has proven out that the private school students get into better colleges and will make 35-40% more in earnings . This was NOT caused by club lacrosse just the smarter better clubs learned to tap into it. I’m sorry your son is short and fat like his mother and has cankles like you. If you were good parents you would stop making excuses for your children. Dont blame others for your inability to provide advantages. If your son does not make his varsity team his freshman year kiss top D1 programs good bye. You should start looking at the lower DIII programs.
It would be great if there were two levels of clubs a private school league and public school league.

Please guys, don’t feed the trolls.
Private school vet here. I also find that people that think like this are usually first generation private school kids who are born somewhere else like Ohio and are thirsty to to fit into the Baltimore Private school crowd. They will do anything to perceptibly fit in. It’s not where
You went to school, it’s where your gran went to school.

Using Pat Spencer as an example proves hold backs works. First he went to a private school not a public. Second he was a hold back and possibly a two time based on his age. Third do you know why his family chose to drive him all the way up to BL each day. I bet it wasn’t for lacrosse since he didn’t make varsity until his junior year.
I’m sure Spaulding, StM and Severn were much closer to his home.

There are a lot of D3 schools that need to fill their rosters too. Some new programs you may want to check out in the Midwest. And college club lax is always a good option too. There really is a place for everyone to play in college if you want to.

The fact is …You sound like the “stunad”! It Sounds like you shouldn’t be teaching your children anything! You are what is wrong with our society! Privileged brat kids may be better at lacrosse because of paying to stay back 2/3 years in privates. It certainly does not make them better human beings. A lot become privileged sounding stunad adults , like yourself. As soon as you teach your children to be humble and lose superiority attitude, the better!

You really need to step away from the keyboard or your phone or whatever it is that you are HIDING behind. No person that is decent, would make these comments. And if it is a kid, that's WAY more disturbing then it being an adult. If you think your behavior is funny and you are just trying to get a rise out of people - you need serious help.

Facts are facts !! Look it up. By sending your child to a public school you are setting up your child’s future of failure. Plus public school lacrosse is terrible. Less then 5% of the players on Elite high school clubs attend public school and they sit on the bench and have to pay the full fee.

No movement just additions from top prep boarders. 91 does not cut existing players. They are committed to development and never give up on the players that commit to them, However they are honest to the kids who might not play in games that much so the families can decide what to do. 99% have stayed . If it’s up to the kid that number is 100%.

Maybe since you have that outstanding education, you could read the Baltimore Sun that posted an article on 8/13 about some Catonsville (PUBLIC) men committed to Towson & MD...what are your excuses for that happening (since you say there are "exceptions").

Obviously your higher education didn’t teach you to read…one to Towson AND one to MD. All this does is show how your comment that you have to go to private to play D1…then you back paddle to TOP 5 (not in your original statement). So, what now? Top 1 school?

Glenelg high school has multiple players on D1 rosters. Marriotts Ridge has multiple D1 players on current rosters. Mt Hebron has multiple players on current D1 rosters. Sept 1 coming and all three programs will have multiple D1 commits by the end of September. Sit your MIAA *** down.

Not to feed the pre-pubescent troll here, but every graduating class now has its own IG where the seniors chime in on where they are going to college/university.
I have been monitoring this for a few years as we wanted to see what kind of value we were getting for our own kids education.
Let me just say either I'm impressed by Dulaney and Towson High Schools and somewhat underwhelmed with Maryvale and NDP.
So many kids from these privates end up going to College Park and other safety/local/ not-too-far-away schools {Delaware?}. Not too many who go onto T-20 or even T-50 schools. No NW or UM or Chicagos'?

That is the non talked about truth at these private schools. Majority go to decent good colleges. UMD, Delaware, Loyola, etc. Of course some go onto IVY's , But not like it used to be. Gilman used to be a Princeton, Ivy powerhouse, not anymore.

If your child is brilliant and you can afford it,,,Private at Gilman, McD and a few more are worth it. Average student maybe even above average, if you are loaded , go private, if you are not loaded...save your money, you will get into same schools and much more money in your pocket at end.

Privates are not the same cache as before. Plus the Ivy's along with many top colleges have a huge list of diversity slots to give out along with the Asians killing it on SAT's.

1. LOL if they can afford anything above the 3 cheapest Catholic HS in Baltimore (I think Mercy, Curley, St. Joe) they can afford Delaware out of state. The true Baltimore privates cost the same as out-of-state tuition for UD.

2. If those kids were on (any) scholarship at those private HS and did not parlay that into college scholarships, then that's on the students, HS counselors, coaches, and parents to fail to make that happen. Having aims at a school like 'Nova is great but either over-perform in HS (to get funding) or "be rich." Those are the two pathways. Maybe it was never a realistic option for those kids. Honestly. I sure couldn't pay full freight at Villanova for my son.

3. No matter how many times you try to put Towson U in the same category as UMD (for lax or for educational value) the two are not the same. "What about the Severna Park kid who is playing at Towson?!" Do you know how many Severna Park kids are at Towson? A lot.

If the kid is good enough, doesn't matter where he plays in HS.

If it’s up to the kid that number is 100%.

First of all this is not factual whatsoever. 91 helmets were all over 2027 and 2028 tryouts all over MD including the rec clubs (LTLC, KP, Sidewinders, Claws, HoCo Pink). What kind of experience does a AAA player have at T91 that has his parents rushing back to get him in A or AA ball? That seems bad.

Weirder yet was that the 2028, 2029, 2031, and 2031 T91 tryouts had about 60 total players show up for 88 roster spots. Including - like somebody mentioned - a whole pile of Swarm kids that came with a new dad coach.

And no, 91 may not cut an existing player but they will intentionally not play a kid to encourage him to leave. As in, the score is 12-1 with 2 minutes left and they still don't put the kid in. Maybe that's what you call being "honest to the kids who might not play in games that much."

In other words I would disregard "top prep boarders" Dad of a T91 2023 kid. T91 has the goods, bads, and uglies of every other AAA or elite club across the age groups. It's almost stereotypical - national champ caliber HS teams and totally neglected MS age teams with dumpster fire coaching. Like everywhere else.

Zero difference.......if you never leave Maryland. If you go anywhere else in the world, it means everything. It's like the opposite of the Hopkins effect - where the degree is worth more, the farther you move away from MD.

But yeah, your son's NYC or Chicago or LA or Dallas employer will put more stake in his UMD degree than his Towson State Teachers College degree. I attended both. They are not the same.

That's probably a fun 1-off story, but I'm also interested in why 12 T91 2029s left this fall. And I assure you they did not go en masse to Crabs (2029 team also folded), Hawks, or FCA.

FYI - 50% of parents including the non-lax folks at Baltimore privates are not paying full tuition and receiving some form of financial aide - they # is > than 50% at some of the more expensive schools.

Is that due to the coaching they get at 91?

The answer to all things 91 related is MM; he only knows one way to coach and that is tearing down kids. My guess is the kid/family had enough of his BS.

That is totally correct. And Spot on for a big contributing factor. But MM did said 19 out of 21 players are starting for MIAA and going D1.

Many 91 players I know walk on eggshells for fear of one screwup = benching. So instead of playing their game, they play tentative and safe.
I'd guess that style of coaching has at least something to do with it.

Lets give him some credit, there are two players that get excellent coaching and have ball go thru them at every opportunity , of course at expense of all others,

Now that McD head coach has joined the Predators, wonder how this will effect 91 teams ? Looks like Preds may be getting some future McD boys, cant be good for MM.

MM will 100% sell the 91MD to 3-Step or whoever, once his rockstar 2025 class has largely committed to college programs. Won't be long (Spring 2024?). Look at the (non) emphasis on any of the younger teams. It's not tracking towards "longevity" or what have you.

Every ‘91 team younger than ‘25 had a bad losing record last year. McDonogh coach knows it. He’s not keeping his eggs in one basket.

I believe he has another son on the 2025s, so (duh) that team gets a lot of coaching and focus as well, there has been a lot of attention paid to getting high quality talent to support son #2.

Like somebody already posted, I am sure MM has batted away offers to buy Millon events and T91MD for the past few years, he has built a good product, and it's not like buyers were pitching to Aloha and Hogan and NOT to Millon.

But yeah the common sense option would be for him to hit eject on both LLCs once he feels that his 2025s have been well recruited.

Only a few fans left of MM. May not be a feeder but McD captured his most prized player and anything and everything will be done to support the player.

Not sure what insanity you are talking about. McD coach has done the coaching rounds with various clubs including Crabs. This is just another club to recruit and make some money from.

And probably biggest reason, McD Coach doesnt want to get left behind on the best up and coming Club in Baltimore , Predators. Talk of Northern Baltimore lacrosse community.

That's true, he was part of the exodus from the land of the King Krab Pharoah this fall. Crabs will be on the upswing once BL fills those dorms in another 10 months. For now they are stuck out in the mud at low tide .

Much like a (non medical) diploma from JHU, that Crabs helmet has more appeal far away from Baltimore than it does in Baltimore. I don't love the Crabs org and don't mind if they fail, but I've personally met a pile of parents relocating from GA, FL, VA, NC and TX and looking at the North Baltimore Schools, for a "lax school" for Boden or Brayden or Brody or whoever their kid is. Curiously BL is more successful at recruiting these kids than the other schools. Most of those families will seek to ingratiate themselves to King Krab because they know those yellow helmets from Instagram. Crabs will be OK whether the kids are from Timonium or Texas or Tanzania.

91? LOL not so much.

So far 13 kids on 91 2023 have received offers and have made their decisions …. More to come!

20 from 2022’s received scholarship money from the school they chose; two others are going preferred walk on route.

2024’ we’ll see but may be the entire team. This is the first team at 91 that has been on board from day 1. This team is a true testament to great coaching!!

91 coaches player development. It’s not about winning the rigged tournaments.
Now let’s see how it matriculates into college. A great program to follow.

Well, I guess they could play down like other clubs do just to have a great record (cough, Team MD). All of those 91 teams are playing in Elite or AAA.

Those 13 23's keeping their decisions under wraps for some reason? I've seen 2 - Marist and Jacksonville and great for them.

It’s not about wins or tournament trophies it’s about coaching.

2024’s don’t win many tournaments but has the best players top to bottom.

It’s not about winning !!! Records mean nothing .

Clubs mean very little and do very little to develop players. They are important in marketing players during the summer at events. Clubs are marketing machines not lacrosse academies. High schools develop kids. High school coaches develop players. 91 does a great job of marketing kids.

Honestly none of this is relevant. Your son playing on T91 at age 9 or 12 almost makes it *less* likely they will be on T91 in 9th grade when all the rec rosters collapse and search out a home for college recruiting........and find a home at T91 who then goes out and wins big games. The T91 records at the younger age groups just don't mean anything because those kids won't be playing for 91 in the future.

Well stated, one fall my son played on a club that had 4 practices and 15 games. That is not "developing players" lol. In too many fall ball games, the boys are either playing soft because they are up by 12, or playing deflated because they are down by 12. However, the clubs and tourneys make a pile of money, the sponsors are happy, and for a few players, some buzz is generated. All that is great & fine, but the idea that it's "for player development" is a joke.

D1 scholarships lol. Our MD boys in the 2026-2029 range are probably at the end of MD/NJ/NY/NE scholarship dominance as the programs in CA, TX, GA, and FL grow to fill up roster slots in ACC and Ivy League schools. Our sons may beat that wave of kids to college but it's coming.

I don't know about all that but I know that they are running a business and that right now, the #1 recruit in the country is in their backyard, and his dad runs events where they could do more business, and runs a club where they could do more business. And in addition, to that MM is a PR machine himself.

If I were running ECD I would align myself with MM Jr. Yes I would. And they have.

Asked my son the other day what was going on at 91.

His response- “No one wants to play for 91 anymore.”

All the kids who came over from 91 on my sons team this year pulled their decals off before tryouts. So something is going on over there. Things go in and out of trend. Or it’s just run it’s course. Seems like 91 is the new Looney’s.

Are you kidding me?

Most of the kids that are vacating probably weren’t making the cut at 91. Their 2024 team is one of the better teams in the country (arguably the best in MD) and their 2025 team is hands down the #1 team in the nation.

The better kids will come to the 26’s and 27’s next year.

Go play for your AA program and continue to bash the best.

Kids sense middle school club lacrosse doesn't matter if its not fun. Since lacrosse and school is their whole world, its confusing. Then they have enough of being told about the next level and what ifs. They dont care. They just want to play with their friends and have fun. If they are good enough and grow, HS lacrosse will be awesome. If not, then MM will make them world class miserable robot cone dodging mini a-holes.

My son told me that as well..............which is ironic, because if you look at 91s IG feed during tryouts week, they are quick to show closeups of the kids trying out for 91 with Crabs, FCA, HoCo helmets.

For the younger age groups the "tryouts" were pretty much the existing 91 kids plus some kids from Perry Hall / Swarm. All black helmets. Maybe 80 kids tried out, total for 2028, 2029, 2030, 2031. MM better get those numbers up if he wants a good price for selling the club in another 18 months!

Millon makes his money through events. Running a franchise of 91 helps him fill up those tournaments. The club world keeps evolving. The community programs are doing a better job of providing club level lacrosse at a lower cost for grade school and perhaps into middle school. These private clubs should focus on having elite teams starting in 7/8th grade

This is certainly true in Maryland. Private school lacrosse has a disproportionate value relative to lacrosse players wanting to play in college @ D1. If you are a very good youth player and go to a public middle school, your best path is to find a private. Spalding, Calvert Hall, Loyola all have open doors to diverse populations. They are great educations and have great lacrosse programs and coaches to mentor your sons.

Bearing in mind that "finding a private" is not universally easy.

I recall St. Pauls admission approval is about 10%, Loyola is about 20%, Calvert Hall is about 25-30%. Loyola's MIDDLE SCHOOL is about 30%.

At any of these schools with a MS, remember that 1/3 of the MS kids matriculating to HS "play club lax" and most of those play AAA/Elite ball. And the coaches know who they are. So it's not like the coaches are running out to find 8th grade kids with 3.1 GPAs from public MS and get them admitted because they can shoot with their left hand. They have 15+ kids per year who already can handle the academics, understand the rules of conduct, and are "fast enough" and can "basically play at a HS level."

Now.......will they cut those MS kids at JV and Varsity for studs who show up out of the public school system (or Texas)? Yes, 100%. With no remorse. But it's up to your son to be that stud.

This is certainly true in Maryland. Private school lacrosse has a disproportionate value relative to lacrosse players wanting to play in college @ D1. If you are a very good youth player and go to a public middle school, your best path is to find a private. Spalding, Calvert Hall, Loyola all have open doors to diverse populations. They are great educations and have great lacrosse programs and coaches to mentor your sons.

All the AIMS (Association of Independent MD & DC Schools) have doors open to diverse populations. While some families are fortunate to be able to afford the tuition, those families that can't are offered a financial aid package with their admission letter - sometimes a little, sometimes a full package based on financial need. Academics, arts, athletics all are taken into account as admissions offers are made.

Some schools go after athletes with $$ even though the family can afford the tuition. MIAA rules discourage athletic scholarships, so the schools with money to offer athletes call it "merit aid" and kids get recruited. One school will offer a few thousand in merit aid, and the same kid will get offered a full ride elsewhere, even though the family has the ability to pay. It shouldn't be that way, but it is.

The open spots at each private HS that has a middle school can vary from year to year. I believe there are fewer spots all around this year as parents continue to look toward the independent schools after bad experiences with remote learning in the publics.

The coaches at my son's school have been watching the MS boys for years and have some of them working with varsity players to learn their positions/offensive schemes/etc. Our school likes to develop from within, others like to recruit. Like local club teams - some recruit away from other teams to build a wining team, others stick with the kids who have been in the club and help them develop.

Some schools continue to recruit boys through high school in order to offset attrition or to bring on a talented recruit. This happens more at some schools based on the philosophy of the athletic department, similar to teams in the NFL. Some teams like to draft and develop, other teams pay for talent in free agency.

Another factor among the MIAA/IAAM schools is the number of college counselors and the counselor/student ratio. Private schools are keenly aware of why parents make the investment - primarily college admissions. The prep work for college is given a high degree of attention, and the number of kids a counselor has in his/her portfolio is much smaller in the private schools. Public school counselors may work with hundreds of kids in each grade year, private schools a few dozen. This makes a big difference, as the private school counselors have more time to develop relationships with the college admissions folks. If a kid is in contact with the coaching staff, and the counselor is talking with admissions, the chance for a successful recruitment is much higher. Check out the MIAA group on Facebook, in which you can see the connections between local private schools and colleges.

Hopefully this is helpful info to some of the folks on here.

It depends on the year. This year there are a smaller number of slots than usual due to a large eighth grade moving from MS to US. Generally, the new student admission pool is below 20%.

With 500 kids K-12, uhh yeah. About 20-25 matriculate from 8th to 9th at SP, leaving 10-20 total spots for new 9th graders, most of whom are coming in from K-8 private schools......not public schools.

Be an athletic stud, a legacy kid, or roll in with a 3.9 GPA from public school. Being "the best 3rd line middie on the T91" and a 3.1 at Dumbarton ain't going to cut it for 9th grade admissions unless you are talking Spalding, Palotti, Curley, or MSJ.

And yeah, what this is all about, is college admissions and future alumni donations. You will donate more money back to St Pauls if St Pauls gets you to Yale instead of Frostburg. #facts

There are nearly 1400 students at The St Paul's Schools, from preschool through 12th grade.

Ten years ago, the SP middle school classes were roughly 50 boys. The ninth grade entry point usually meant adding another 30-ish boys to the class.

There are roughly 70 boys in the 8th grade at SP this year. Upper school classes are limited to about 85. A few boys will leave for other upper schools, but most will stay. That means maybe 10-15 boys will be admitted.

They have ties with 3? clubs plus girls clubs because field rental is an easy source of income.

Acc to Google they have a $78 million endowment from which they only pull about 3% per year, which most years is interest income...and only some of it.

SP admitted something like 15 new boys into 9th grade and 5 new boys into 10th grade this past year. As the other guy said, that # will be lower this coming spring.

I'm sure they admit some total duds like any other private school but it's not like they are just opening up runways for new students to roll in....or that they need to.

$78M in endowment, but they need field rental income?

Rock, Predators and Koopers- Every kid from those clubs are on the St P's recruiting lists.

I find it very hard to believe they are only bringing in 15 new kids between 8th and 9th grades. I don't know a lot of St P people but I know 2 new freshmen, personally? Hmmm....

No Koopers or Rock 2028 teams. Only Predators. You can expect kids to come over next year from other programs with the addition of McDonough Coach in the Preds program. I bet the bottom half of that team gets cut with better talent coming in.

Everyone I know looking to get into St. Paul's has. Their lax roster seems to have a reasonable number of players from public Middle Schools (which I think is great)

I also see lots of Towson and Dulaney kids getting into top schools and academic programs. Not so much top lax schools, but they are getting the education they need to succeed and have a lower chance of turning into [ChillLaxin].

Kid quit on his team and didn't play the last game? Went home? Sounds like the parents have a mental case. If you gonna move, at least play out your commitment. Sounds like privilege to me. Waaaaaaa. As a parent and former coach, no one wants a kid who quits on any team. Good riddance.

As a parent and former coach, I could care less about his commitment to the "team" (the club).

In fact I think it's far worse. Bailing on your boys partway through the day because you're not feeling it is weak, it shows that you are the kind of friend who can't be depended upon in a crunch. Young men don't learn this behavior from themselves nor from each other, this attitude comes from parents with no heart and no ethics. It's why all of our offices are full of 22 year olds who quit 4 months after they get the job. "Oh it was getting hard." See ya.

I heard from a friend's son that he only played 2 of their 3 games the other week, going home before the last game because he didn't feel like playing the 3rd game. Heaven help any other players on that team if they tried to do the same (or while playing taking poor shots every possession resulting in the D being exhausted due to short possessions) The question shouldn't be why did a player leave, rather why have any stayed?

He left because he was puking from being over served at a party the night before

Kid quit on his team and didn't play the last game? Went home? Sounds like the parents have a mental case. If you gonna move, at least play out your commitment. Sounds like privilege to me. Waaaaaaa. As a parent and former coach, no one wants a kid who quits on any team. Good riddance.

As a parent and former coach, I could care less about his commitment to the "team" (the club).

In fact I think it's far worse. Bailing on your boys partway through the day because you're not feeling it is weak, it shows that you are the kind of friend who can't be depended upon in a crunch. Young men don't learn this behavior from themselves nor from each other, this attitude comes from parents with no heart and no ethics. It's why all of our offices are full of 22 year olds who quit 4 months after they get the job. "Oh it was getting hard." See ya.

Boys will be Boys and especially if they are number one recruit. Cant teach talent

Take it from me, a D1 dad. You’re not gonna make a D1 team if you can’t go hard Friday night and still drop 3G and 3A Saturday afternoon.

Kid who left before the last game isn't the pole that went to FCA - that kid left before the start of this season. The one who left is the #1ranked 2023 player who picks and chooses who he plays for and when. The rest of the team is held to a different standard of behavior. He comes and goes as he pleases.

Like most MIAA players, ONE.. The majority of MIAA players are one time holdbacks, not two if heldback...yes a prefirst is a holdback the same as a 8th or 6th grader repeating.

Why wouldn't you be looking for somewhere else if your kid plays for Team 91?
The talk of player development is BS. And the Team 91 Youth/MS teams are terrible:

'25- #1 team in the NATION!!!!
'26 1-5
'27 1-5
'28 1-6
'29 2-5

Team 91, overall record: 5-21
.192 win percentage.

That's a lot of mediocrity. And that's being nice.

MM is proud of what his two chosen ones have accomplished not the team , LOL.., The rest ,, well the results speak for themselves. People talk about ML and the owner, at least he has results that are above Average at several age groups.

They have to be better than the middle school and youth teams.

Generally speaking, the youth side is an afterthought that might occasionally win a game against lower tier, but they are really just a way to help pay the bills for the HS teams.

MM 2923 kid was a no-show for his team today at NLF because he didn't feel like playing today. So he's a '23 who made 2 of 6 tourney games this fall. I wonder what would happen to anyone else on the team doing the same? Yet whenever he shows up next, he'll be on the field 100% of the game. Great team player.

Stop your moaning. Why does he need to show up? Not like it means anything. The talent is there for all to see when there is a need. No sense showing it all the time.

There is a reason he is number 1 recruit in country. He earned it. Talent is off the charts, Rest of team will be somewhere else soon.

Are people so jealous of him. Most lacrosse people I talk to say he is overrated. Not one person I have talked with said he at the top. Is it due to him ? or does the dad have residuals coming into play. I watched the recent gopro on him. D ate him up, didnt even cause a slide.

Talent is above average but still within limits of the "chart". MM marketed him, that's the only reason he landed as the top '23 recruit. Interesting that he chose to go to a school who has a '22 commit from Chaminade who plays the position very similarly, only is a better finisher.

Rest of team plays better without him and likes being able to do something other than "get the ball to MM" and watch him dodge and shoot. It's actually a win to not have him there in terms of team play. Playing "down" with this team he tries to do too much and turns the ball over or takes poor, low percentage shots that are easily saved. He might be shooting 15%. He has crazy quickness and ability, but plays selfishly and carelessly with this team. I guess he's practicing for the PLL.

Correct. But he will be getting nowhere fast as the heir apparent Dino Jr, is aloof and so full of himself, MM will get no traction .

The answer to that, based on my climb up the corp ladder, is "When they slip from #1 to #2 in the pecking order." All of a sudden, the adoring crowd has gone home, and the support network of "whatever you need" evaporates or at best, sends you their hourly billing rate.

A big part of being #1 was repeating 8th grade. Dad knew he couldn't be the #1 '22 as JS had that locked up already and MM may not even have been top 10, which just wasn't good enough for dad. Now he claims he chose Duke b/c his education is of utmost importance, although in MS and HS lax was definitely all that mattered.

Stop your moaning. Why does he need to show up? Not like it means anything. The talent is there for all to see when there is a need. No sense showing it all the time.
Wow Mark. God help your son when he grows up.
When will people realize that that kind of arrogance is just flat out ugly and unappealing.

The answer to that, based on my climb up the corp ladder, is "When they slip from #1 to #2 in the pecking order." All of a sudden, the adoring crowd has gone home, and the support network of "whatever you need" evaporates or at best, sends you their hourly billing rate.

So true!

No one repeats 8th grade because education is important. Either they flunked because nobody at home placed any value on education or sports is their #1 priority and education is secondary. Of course they'll claim the fact that they pay an extra $40K proves they "value" education.

Plenty of kids at private schools repeat 8th grade. Usually the school advises the parents to do so.

McD required McCabe to stay back due to his age. He entered public school system a year early so now he’s actually on age. He was the youngest in his class at McD before reclassifying. BTW he is one of the top 5 students academically at McD.

Great kid but 10000% not true. He will be an 18 in a few months. My son grew up with him. No big deal but your facts are absolutely not true.

So far from the truth. He was actually on age before holding back and frankly not even a summer on age student, much earlier. So the reality is , he is older than most he plays against including most summer holdbacks.

He may be one of the youngest at McD, but only if the rest are also holdbacks. SP would not allow him to re-class because he was doing well in school and athletically. McD was happy to allow it, might even have encouraged it, but it's not because he was too young. March 2004 birthday. He started public school on age, but even then he was too good to attend the public school for which we was zoned - they bussed him outside of his school zone.

Most boys at McD born after March are holdbacks, and that is in the 75-90 % range. They only have 45-70 boys per grade. Generally from the two grades my sons are involved with. I would say over 50% are holdbacks.

MM was against holdbacks the first few years his kid played. Talked trash about holdbacks. Then he quickly got on with the program as it is written in the MIAA, hold im back or suffer.

Of course a school charging $40K is going to love having kids spend an extra year under their roof. Not surprised that they encourage it.

Spoken like an apologist to the holdback world, who wants to justify his reasoning ,..He is right when it comes to the majority of boys who want to play lacrosse. they hold them back for sports. There are a lot of students who are held back for education, most dont have anything to do with lacrosse.

And the bottom line is,,,do what you want with your child, but that gives you no right to play down against other children in youth sports. I bet you think that is ok too? LOL

I don't have a dog in this fight, but rules are technically not being broken when the spring youth leagues and tournaments are based on grade year. In my opinion, US Lax should just settle on the full birth year, not a 9/1 cut off.

What does that mean? The full birth year? Are you saying 1/1? It's been discussed a million times and the January - March parents love it and the October, November, December parents detest it. The only date which will satisfy the age argument is the actual birth date where a kid moves up the day of their birthday. The kid is the youngest and progresses to the oldest. Then the January parents detest it because little Tommy goes from probably the biggest and fastest to probably on the slower and smaller side. It's never ending.

Travel/Club soccer is by birth year. So, if you were born in 2009, you play on a 2009 team.

Sure the Jan kids have and advantage. But that advantage is limited to a 1-year age difference. Instead of the (2 year+) difference we are currently seeing in club lacrosse when it is split by grade.

The argument is for birth year. That’s not arbitrary. It’s the calendar year…literally the start of a new year. This is how every other sport aside from lacrosse handles it.

Not true. "The Age Determination Date for a Little League Baseball player is the actual age of a child on August 31 of the current year. " The January 1st start date of the calendar year is the ultimate example of arbitrary. What is the argument against using the actual birth date of the player? The kid has a birthday - they move up to the next age level. The only minor argument is the practice schedule might change. Tough, practices change all the time.

USA football uses 8/1 and I think basketball does to. There goes the birth year argument.

USA Soccer is based on the European model of soccer development. You also are usually required to not play any other sport in their top clubs and academy teams. USA soccer is over the top in their quest to compete against the European countries with 10 times less people.

Going by a 9/1 Birthday or maybe 8/1 is close to the start of majority of schools in this country and keeps all kids in their proper age grade. Common sense says that is best solution.

School has nothing to do with it, you're already against grade based. Let them make some new friends. If you're born in 2009, you play on a 2009 team. It would work.

Your argument for European soccer model is flawed, Most soccer players go onto a club team , not school to compete. Total different model. Year ( Jan ) makes sense as its the easiest to rate players and the world soccer youth plays a strict age based all over the world. So easy to determine age based on that. 2001. 2002. etc.

Most of our USA youth sports boys go onto college and play. So it makes sense to try to get as close to grade as possible ( Sept , Aug ) without the crazy holdback world becoming to much of a problem. Youth makes sense to be Sept or Aug. Common sense

Actually there is no "rule" to break because HS does not follow UL Lax guidelines for age, they follow grade. Club lax doesn't follow US Lax rules for age, they use grad year which is a moving target when kids choose to reclass. "Rules" aren't being broken, they are being used to give an advantage to a player by allowing them to compete with/against generally younger players.

Those that are held back for reasons other than sports are usually held back a much younger ages than 8th grade. Like all elitists', it's OK to be against something for others while feeling entitled to do what you want - when you are the greatest, why should the rules for those below you apply?

That rings true to many in this area as the main drivers of playing down in youth sports is the " Character Driven " students/parents of the MIAA private schools in Baltimore.

Classic example of the hypocrisy is the debacle of Gilman football a few years ago. Old Poogy recruited top football players who overwhelmed and destroyed the other MIAA schools, Their solution, not play Gilman in Football. While they are on the winning end with recruitment, alls ok,,,soon as they start getting beaten by bigger and stronger players, quit... And that is at the High School level not youth.

My son plays on an academy team and also plays lacrosse and basketball. No issues. Ties in events go to the “In season” sport. The coaches get pissed from time to time. If they don’t like it, they know they can bench my kid. But they haven’t yet.

You don’t think the parents holding the kids back earlier than 8th grade have an agenda and know exactly what they are doing? I know “lacrosse families” who know when their kids are born they will be doing this at a younger age. In elementary school as to not make it look obvious. They know about the “real advantages” of that extra year or two younger. Makes confidence in the kid younger being the best early. Also, extra training year. Real Advantages!!!

I’ve heard people discuss this. I was shocked. But it definitely happens all the time!!! Rules need to be changed to make it fair for “on age” kids.

[/quote] Classic example of the hypocrisy is the debacle of Gilman football a few years ago. Old Poogy recruited top football players who overwhelmed and destroyed the other MIAA schools, Their solution, not play Gilman in Football. While they are on the winning end with recruitment, alls ok,,,soon as they start getting beaten by bigger and stronger players, quit... And that is at the High School level not youth.[/quote]

Not quite. Poggi recruited from across the country for athletics, and brought in kids who were physically exceptional - much bigger, stronger, and faster than the other kids in the MIAA.

If a recruiting pool is a roughly 20 mile radius surrounding a school, the coach can expect a certain number of strong athletes to matriculate each year around which to build a team and a program, and expects to compete with other schools with the same constraints.

If the recruiting pool is the entire US, then it isn't an MIAA team anymore - it is a US team, and it looks more like college recruiting than a local high school. It was like a D3 school playing an NFL team. - it wasn't just unfair, it was unsafe.

There were other problems with the approach. Parents who had paid tuition since lower school suddenly had to watch the ringers come in and displace the kids who had grown up in the school. Kids who were solid players in middle school were unable to play much in upper school due to the recruiting program.

It was costly - the coach insisted on a certain number of scholarships each year in order to feed the machine he built.

It caused problems in school, as many of the recruited players struggled with rigorous academics.

Other schools complained, but the MIAA couldn't do much. Eventually, the other schools saw the only choice was to opt out.

Notice they didn't stop playing the other MIAA teams - just the one that had an unfair advantage.

Eventually, things changed. Poggi moved on. The other MIAA A conference teams returned to playing against Gilman.

Sounds like the state of MIAA lacrosse right now.

These schools cant compete with kids from just a 20 mile radius.

Open the dorms, let kids live with assistant coaches.

Except no MIAA schools ever stopped playing Gilman in football. They waited until Biff went to St. Frances, then they refused to play them.

Sounds like CHC & BL. Make BL play in the A conference for every sport then and see if they use those dorms to recruit for every sport, as well as "The International Students".

The "golden seal" that Biff broke (along with, I recall, the girls softball coach at McD who successfully recruited out of state "more than usual"), was bringing "more than the unique case" out of state ringer into Gilman. Suddenly it was 6 kids. Then 10. And as the guy posted above, that's when the Gilman crowd started to bark.

But the comparison "Oh the racism" to the St. Frances thing is nuanced. Biff saw - and exploited - racial sensitivities by going to St. Frances and saying, "If it was fine for me to recruit 10 out of staters to Gilman, why can't I recruit 25 to St. Frances?"

Which would be a great debate, except that 10 was a problem at Gilman.

6 would have eventually been a problem at Gilman. But yes as long as it was 1,2,3 studs, the Gilman folks were as happy as could be with their Texas recruit. Would the MIAA schools have pitched a fit if Biff brought 1, 2, or 3 studs out of state to St. Frances? Maybe so, and if so, that would be racist.

Also (not sure whose comment), it's not 20 miles. It's more like 60-70 miles but the gravity is weaker away from the school. Kids come from across the shore to attend St. Mary's. Kids from PG, Annapolis, and PA attend Loyola, Gilman, and McD. Once the commute starts to hit about 40 miles, the more local schools should be able to recruit more effectively (Gunston on the shore, GP/Bullis/DeMatha in PG/MoCo). Nobody's taking a bus past DeMatha to attend Calvert Hall every day. Or taking the MARC past Georgetown Prep so they can get a seat at Gilman/Loyola.

You get a Budweiser "Real Men of Genius" award for somehow tying this thread back into T91!

Valid question, too.

But I think the only true box programs north of DC are associated with Navy (league), MABLL (Arrows), Warthogs, True's "Atlantic Rage" or whatever, and whatever (if anything) Aberdeen Box has going on. Not sure of what "league play" will realistically pop up for our sons' age in January.

It's box practice, not games. They do some brief scrimmages at the end of the practices.

Sounds like the MIAA schools and their holdbacks didnt want to play against bigger and more athletic High School students from Gilman. I guess it is ok when the holdbacks in youth have the advantage and are running over on age youth players, not so OK when someone else ups the ante against them in HS and turns the table.....Total Hypocrisy of holdbacks .

Poggi did not recruit from across the country at Gilman - he recruited initially from the counties surrounding Baltimore, then expanded to the DMV. He didn't start recruiting nationally until he got to STF.

No, he insisted on a certain number of slots for football players; not tuition. He and donors covered the tuition expenses. And I assure you Gilman wasn't worried about any cost.

Many? Again, this is untrue. Look at the schools Biff's Gilman kids went to. His last team at Gilman sent 2 kids to Stanford, 3 to Navy, 2 to Cornell, 1 to Michigan....

Not in any meaningful way. No box pads, or true box play. Some pick down play taught, but really just MM telling everyone how important box is and he is the only coach in Balto who knows how to play it. Other better options if you are really interested in playing box games and tourneys against Canadian and Native American teams.

It’s because they’re cowards - try to mess with a kid instead of talking trash to the other team’s coach because MM knows he’d get smacked down. He suffers from short man syndrome. 5’8” on a good day, so pick on bigger high school kids to feel tough.

I wouldn't be surprised to see him cash out after the 25's and let his oldest son AS take it all over - he runs it all now anyway. More money and fewer headaches running events and training camps until the other MM graduates and takes over. Mis-Atlantic lax is too saturated now with fresher faces and his reputation is too well known here so he'll probably wind up focusing on CA, TX and other growth areas that crave the name recognition without the baggage of his personal reputation being known. Then he'll retire and spend his days watching footage of himself in his glory days by his lonesome self.

His brand isn't that strong.
He's been out of the game so long its all stale now.
Pictures of him wearing those old helmets and uniforms, didn't age so well.

I thought you were talking about shots as in shooting the ball. He takes 50 of those a game with 40 of them ill-advised/executed. The ones on the mark are outstanding though so his highlight reel is one for the ages. Watch a full game and take TOs into account and it's a different story. Dino will have some work to do to change behaviors.

He will never see the field at Duke. To many turnovers and not enough athleticism. He will make a great scot team player with his stick skills. MM will have him out by second year. My prediction

You have GOT to be kidding me with this Dad's Country Club nonsense, Mark.

Did we hear stories like this about Joey Spallina? No. How about the #1 2020 recruit (Brennan O'Neill)? Or the #1 2019 recruit (Shellenberger) No. Or the #1 2018 recruit (Epstein)?

How about Lil Millons 2023 local contemporaries:
#4 Christmas, MadLax
#9 Kabiri, MadLax
#11 Wade, DC Express
#13 Marsh, Crabs
#14 Fyock, Hawks
#16 Burns, MadLax
#18 Weller, MadLax

No you do not. You do not hear stories about those kids blowing up other kids' opportunities, then deciding not to show up for the next one. I don't even put it on Lil Millon. This entitled behavior has Dad's fingerprints all over it. Winning matters, meritocracy matters, but character counts. A lot.

Yup, same with 2026 - bring in Texas kids who hog the ball, never practice with the team, and take time from players that are good and there every practice, and they wonder why they don't win more at tourneys. The regular kids DESPISE those kids. They have ZERO rhythm with the team. They don't even hang out with the team while they are there. Parents were not happy last weekend. Even when they screwed up, which was often, they went right back in. Pathetic practice.

Two choices... work harder and beat them out or run from the competition and find a new club. Paying doesn't guarantee a playing time.

Thanks Coach. When would you be able to compete
with them? It's not competition when they just show up on game day for the prime tournaments. Competition is having the opportunity to grind day after day on the practice field with your true teammates. Competing open and directly and knowing where you stand based on the side by side work.

This is an accurate statement when referring to rostered kids who show up week after week and give the other boys a challenge they can either work toward, or shrink away from.

But this is a bone head statement when referring to some rando giant Texas knuckleheads who showed up and the kids on the roster have not even had an opportunity to judge, "what the heck is this, and who the heck is that guy?"

And all this coming from the official club director of "We Never Cut Kids Who Work Hard!" (we just make them miserable enough to not show up for tryouts the next year).

In HS exposure events, teams aren't even looked at. Everyone should have a chance to play/be seen. Sounds like 91 is interested in winning games to boost their brand over supporting their players in being seen by coaches. Alow, as a parent of a player who has played as a guest multiple times, paying team members should ALWAYS have priority over non-paying guests.

He shows up and plays for us whenever he feels like it and others who are trying to get looks with 100+ coaches watching don’t get in the game at all

As he should ! He is the No 1 recruit .. Live with it

You have GOT to be kidding me with this Dad's Country Club nonsense, Mark.

Did we hear stories like this about Joey Spallina? No. How about the #1 2020 recruit (Brennan O'Neill)? Or the #1 2019 recruit (Shellenberger) No. Or the #1 2018 recruit (Epstein)?

How about Lil Millons 2023 local contemporaries:
#4 Christmas, MadLax
#9 Kabiri, MadLax
#11 Wade, DC Express
#13 Marsh, Crabs
#14 Fyock, Hawks
#16 Burns, MadLax
#18 Weller, MadLax

No you do not. You do not hear stories about those kids blowing up other kids' opportunities, then deciding not to show up for the next one. I don't even put it on Lil Millon. This entitled behavior has Dad's fingerprints all over it. Winning matters, meritocracy matters, but character counts. A lot.
Agreed. He is no different than a child beauty queen being placed in parents by their parents. Although in this case, he does share many of big M's personality traits.

Parents are consumers. If they are paying for a product and aren't satisfied, they should move on. Club lacrosse is on borrowed time. No more fleecing or bullying parents into buying their product. Time to find a real job MM!

It's one of the reasons their younger teams aren't attracting the local talent they used to. They know the rug will be pulled out from under them in the 7th grade, with out-of-towners that aren't held accountable.

The college coaches at a recent recruiting event in MD got quite the show. One high profile recruit was leaving the field after a lackluster game and a close loss, but was heard chirping the opposing team, "You know my name!" Lots of me. Not a lot of we.

Kids these days are watching too many slow-mo vids of themselves shooting in helmet and gloves in the back yard and think that's real lacrosse. It's why their h/s teams always underperform.

These parents aren't doing their kids any favors. They really believe what their dads are telling them. Gonna be a huge wakeup call for these kids in college and ultimately life.

Many clubs are struggling to attract the local talent because because for all of the talk bout "developing players" the only focus is on winning at all costs, even at the young ages. It's highly unusual to see the year-over-year turnover that 91 has in the HS ages though. Teams are generally settled down by then, but 91 has a revolving door of players exiting and new ones entering even up to their Jr year. There has to be some real issues for that to be going on at what's supposed to be a "top" level club.

If it was #9, he better learn to deal with having a mark on him not only by teams he plays against now, but also as a Freshman within his own team in college. Seniors love nothing more than adjusting the attitude of freshman coming in with a chip on their shoulder based on their youth lacrosse accolades.

Not defending it at all.....but if you think it's absurd (which it is), like many things in life, it means the product is not *for* you. The product is intended for two demographics:

1) Parents/kids who want to "feel like they're on a winning team" (and tell Buffy at the Clubhouse alllllll about it), but aren't worried that their kid is getting low value (and reduced visibility, low playing time, etc) out of the paid experience.

2) Parents/kids from outside the DC - Boston corridor who want to "sub in" on a "high profile east coast team" to increase Barrett VI's chances of being seen by a coach or recruiter outside of their town in eastern Iowa. And who don't mind knowing they're being used *specifically* to help the club boost its national ranking.

The product ( ML, True, Crabs, 91, Hawks, and many others) is not there so your son Greyhson Salyx, who rightfully snagged a 1st line spot on an elite team, can show off his dominance. No, no, no. Greyhson Salyx and the other "real starters" are there to support the guest players, who are there to help cement the club's ranking for the year. And the copacetic "go along" parents are there to bankroll the whole thing. It's its own very absurd ecosystem.

Dad is partnered with them on several events. Coverage and professional videographer is all paid for by daddy. Of course on the other side, they do nothing to support getting game film to the team.

It is comical the coverage they give him. Everyone that has any knowledge knows what a joke it is . I will say, it gives many of us , plenty to talk and laugh about while making fun of the situation and ECD. Round two of the next chosen one will be here in next few years with the lapdogs at ECD doing their puppet dance again.

Which would be fine if they could make all of the practices. Let a local kid on the team skip the practices and see how it plays out. When they roll in from out of town they're treated like they have made some special sacrifice.

Congrats to the young man.

I doubt this has more than 10% due to Millon, as every year, UMBC aggressively recruits McDonough, Curley, MSJ, Spalding, and Severna Park HS for above-average or better local athletic talent who can hang with the academics and make up the core of their unit. This kid would have been seen by UMBC coaches with or without Millon. Again, congrats to the kid for showing out when it counted, and being ready & able to play at the next level.

Lol sorry but Millon had nothing to do with this young man’s development. His own work ethic and his fathers support got him to UMBC. The kid is a class act and hard worker.

“Fire” indeed!

Not to be confused with team “Lit”, or team “No Cap”

Some say MM is Cheugy.

But the key really is sweet swag and making sure the team name reflects just how current, hip and cool it is, so the kids social media can be off the hook, 100. Double underline.

You can call yourself whatever you want when you haven't lost in over a year

You can't knock MM's marketing skills - #9 is in the news all the time (and on the cover of US Lacrosse Magazine) I'm sure he'll be announcing a sponsorship deal soon. Strike while the iron is hot.

This. There are many negative things that could be said about 91's operations, coaching, culture, etc.

But branding and marketing are being managed multiple levels better than any other club in the region. Including national teams.

Crabs, Looneys, and even Koopers and Breakers have had (actual) genius one-off ideas about branding and marketing over the last 20 years, but Millon kills it consistently. I'd rather my kid intern at Millon's company than play for his teams lol.

I’m not sold that the 27 are anywhere near elite level. If they are out there, they won’t do well.

A couple kids from my sons old teams play for them. All of them are good, not great kids. None of them are standouts.

27’s win 1 game a year in hoco but do play well against other teams. But the 27 elites are pretty good: hawks, NL and ml are top 15 against club teams. National teams aren’t included.

None of the players they brought in are upgrades at the positions they play. In fact, expect the offense to be the same or possibly even worse. Biggest problem on that team is lack of accountability and personal responsibility, beginning with the two dad coaches on the sideline who have their heads buried in their phones during games and practices. They add nothing resembling value to the staff.

Consider yourself lucky. We fell for the 91 sales pitch for 2028. 27 kids on the roster. Multiple dad coaches (we followed one there, promised an "elite experience"). I feel like the club is keeping us in the dark about what bracket we are playing in, to stop us from complaining. We literally have no idea if we will be in Elite, AAA, or AA.

Positives so far: had a bunch of good box lax practices, and Millon does show up for workouts semi regularly, which the boys seem to like. Most of the kids seem to have a good attitude but with basically 30 of them, hard to keep them all straight.

To Millon's credit (and ultimate demise), much harder to add "you're on the team, just show up to these 7 tournaments" out of state ringers when 91 is fielding teams in key ringer states.......NC, GA, TX, FL, SC (Charleston Elite is "partnering" w 91), and on and on.

Ironically due to the top down structure of Crabs (91 teams are all franchises), King Krab uses this to his advantage aka "if MD Crabs needs a player, how about you provide us with one" as it pertains to VLC, FL Crabs, and now Cavs.

Texas kids ruin the chemistry and are not liked by the other players, or parents. Zero integrity of the coaching staff to play these kids all game. They don't know plays etc....but yet play all game. Pathetic.

Millon probably accidentally included a longpole in that kid's T91 official tactical schwag bag, and the rest is history.

They play all game because the TX kids are better.

But it's also correct. If your son has played <1 year on T91, you can be excused for believing the "we develop players" sales pitch. Once you have done a full year including going to tournaments 4 states away where your kid doesn't step foot on the field for 2 days because of "drop in" players, you have nobody to blame but yourself. Your kid's club dues pay for TX kids to fly to MD for tournaments. Now you see it.

And to be fair to MM, it's not like this is the only club that has this practice........even as young as 4th grade.

I don’t understand why people tolerate 91.

The teams are not good at the youth ages whatsoever and the drama seems to be at an all time high for every age group.

In the Baltimore/Harford County ecosystem, it's parents who:

1) For whatever reason (like status, or facilities, or coaching), don't want their kids on the AA and AAA rec clubs (HoCo, KP, Bel Air), and,
2) believe that other vanilla AA and AAA clubs like Koopers, Predators are "not serious enough" (though they are no worse than 91 at the youth level), and
3) the kids were cut from FCA and Crabs, leaving few local AA/AAA options given #1 and #2

It's that simple. Team 91 is a "situation you find yourself in" unless you're a dad coach, which is slightly different logic (and 91 loves dad coaches).

The pre High school teams are for the kids that get cut from the other teams. 91 is a true pay to play team for parents that care more about the lacrosse than the kids do. 91 will actually try to convince you that dad coaches are better than non-Dad coaches. I happened to stay after my kids game on Sunday and watched a bit of the 91 vs. FCA white game and all 3 daddy coaches pretty much played their kids the entire game. Two of the boys were not very good at all and the other was the Goalie. You tell me, should a team that is carrying 27 kids, have the coaches kid on the field while better kids sit on the bench?

If you want your kid to start, step up and hire Austin for individual training. It may set you back $300-$500, but he will start. That’s yet another thing 91 offers that no other club can match. Haven’t you been paying attention?

Sounds like you are talking about the 2028s. Where they tried not to publicly announce Dad Coach #1s name before or during tryouts because he led a 1-7 AA squad last year and was "bringing his best kids" to AAA 91 (Who went 1-7 last year). There were a pile of red flags from Day 1. Be a more informed customer....seriously.

I love to clown on MM, and there is plenty to clown on, but honestly this is a good practice. Helps remind everyone of what he wants the culture to be....or at least what he SAYS he wants it to be. Culture comes from the top. And honestly, reminding the parents of good conduct is on like page 3 of the USL coaches handbook.

I couldn’t agree more, although his sideline behavior tends to be worse than any of the parents.
Do as I say, not as I do.

He sends one of these out every season at some point. Can’t have the parents acting like he does and he does not want parents calling him out on any of the BS stuff he or his staff do.

What are the implications for a Committed player who gets themselves kicked out of their high school and misses all or part of their season?

Depends entirely on the reason for the expulsion & the college. Georgetown accepted Allen Iverson out of prison with GED.

Ok, you seem a bit obsessed! If you really want the answer, then reach out to the family. I’m sure they would love to hear from you. Finding answers on an anonymous forum is desperate. Desperate, like how badly your son wants to play. Your son is the GPA booster for the team and a sideline cheerleader. My advice for you is to HIT THE WALL.

In the Baltimore/Harford County ecosystem, it's parents who:

1) For whatever reason (like status, or facilities, or coaching), don't want their kids on the AA and AAA rec clubs (HoCo, KP, Bel Air), and,
2) believe that other vanilla AA and AAA clubs like Koopers, Predators are "not serious enough" (though they are no worse than 91 at the youth level), and
3) the kids were cut from FCA and Crabs, leaving few local AA/AAA options given #1 and #2

It's that simple. Team 91 is a "situation you find yourself in" unless you're a dad coach, which is slightly different logic (and 91 loves dad coaches).

The pre High school teams are for the kids that get cut from the other teams. 91 is a true pay to play team for parents that care more about the lacrosse than the kids do. 91 will actually try to convince you that dad coaches are better than non-Dad coaches. I happened to stay after my kids game on Sunday and watched a bit of the 91 vs. FCA white game and all 3 daddy coaches pretty much played their kids the entire game. Two of the boys were not very good at all and the other was the Goalie. You tell me, should a team that is carrying 27 kids, have the coaches kid on the field while better kids sit on the bench?
If you want your kid to start, step up and hire Austin for individual training. It may set you back $300-$500, but he will start. That’s yet another thing 91 offers that no other club can match. Haven’t you been paying attention?
Ahhhh......another MM anonymous forum comment.

Sounds like you are talking about the 2028s. Where they tried not to publicly announce Dad Coach #1s name before or during tryouts because he led a 1-7 AA squad last year and was "bringing his best kids" to AAA 91 (Who went 1-7 last year). There were a pile of red flags from Day 1. Be a more informed customer....seriously.
Don't get me started on the 91 2028 team. Coach #1 and Coach#2 and Coach #3 kids don't come off the field the entire game. And all their kids are AA players at best. Which is fine but maybe not so good in Elite.

I am not a lacrosse prodigy, but its probably for the best that the goalie stay on the field the entire game.

Do your homework and try-out for a team with non-dad coaches.

Ha, I was going to say the same thing. They have one goalie, and his dad coaches him. I don't think his dad plays any other real coach role but I could be wrong. Nice enough guy (the dad) too. Purposefully not discussing the kid because he's a kid.

Easily the least problematic of the three dad coaches unless he's playing a greater role than he was several months ago.

I know plenty of Dad coaches that understand their kids limitations and do not play them the entire game. Is the problem Dad coaches or is it dad's favoring their kids over better players.

With 30+ teams in the 2028 age group good luck finding non dad coaches that want to dedicate their time. For me I think the problem should be Know your team and play the kids that give you the best chance of winning.
