Here are some excerpts about NorCal laxers from Inside Lacrosse write-ups on the Denver Team Camp:
Class of 2014
Joe Rodriguez, Attack, Team NorCal Elite (Bellarmine Prep, Cali.) – Fast, aggressive and working well from X, this kid stood out as a quarterback-type attackman who was the best creator from the attack position on his team, and then went on to look solid the All-Star game. A righty with nice vision, good feeding abilities, athleticism
and able to go right and left, he’s another Cali kid to watch.
Class of 2013
Eric Stagg, Midfield, Team NorCal Elite (Canyon Crest, Calif.) - A prototypical future Division I midfielder, Stagg's got all the tools to excel at the next level of play. Tall (estimating about 6-2), athletic, and a strong dodger, showing some great speed down the lanes, Stagg is an example of the players coming out of the West these days, especially, California. He's also got a nice long-range shot, scoring on a big righty blast in the All-Star contest. He drew top long-stick middies throughout the first couple of days, and really looks the part of and plays like a
Division I midfielder.
Class of 2012
Mike Hernandez, Midfield, Brady’s Bunch (2012/Michigan) - A tall (6-3), strong, fast midfielder, Mike Hernandez turned a lot of heads throughout the weekend, but broke a lot of hearts, too, when coaches learned he was already committed to Michigan. He had a tough game against Claremont, as the Canadians devoted lots of attention to him when he was on the field after scoring with ease at first. But the Michigan-bound California native is one to watch. Dodging from up top, he’s got a tremendous face-dodge and can finish down the lane with a hard, accurate shot. A real athlete from the midfield.
