The fun-filled day of lacrosse will begin early Saturday morning with a Youth & Middle School tournament. Each team will play a total of two games leading up to the Adrenaline All-American game.
The All-American game will allow lacrosse enthusiasts to watch the top 50 seniors west of the Mississippi play a competitive full length North vs. South All-Star game. This game is the only chance for fans to truly see the pride of the entire West compete in one location. The game will be broadcasted live on The Lacrosse Network (TLN).
Players will receive the full Adrenaline Treatment with customized uniforms, and Adrln lifestyle-weargear packs. In addition, sponsors Cascade and Maverik have jumped on board to provide custom helmets and gloves for the event, while Headwrapz has conjured up their best design to date! Players and their families will be treated to an awards luncheon where each player will be recognized for his individual accomplishments. The banquet will also feature keynote speaker, Keith Wilford, from the Wilford movement.
The stacked Adrenaline All-American rosters are comprised of 55 NCAA D1, D2 & D3 players. “We are very proud of this event. It feels great to be able to provide a setting that rewards the top high school players for their years of hard work and all of their accomplishments. For the western United States this is the most significant event of the year and a true tribute to Western lacrosse and the players and coaches that make it so great. We are very thankful for all the sponsors who have rallied around and shared our vision for this type of event” says Alex Cade, President and CMO of Adrenaline.
The Adrenaline All-American game has etched itself as the pinnacle in the careers of the best Western High School lacrosse players. The game is the perfect celebration of the illustrious success of these young men who are all heading off to play at the collegiate level. “What makes this game so special is that most of these boys have come through the Adrenaline ranks at one point in time and we are proud to have had even a slight hand in their success and development over the years,” says Jono Zissi, Recruiting Director for Adrenaline. “These young men have left an indelible mark and are the perfect ambassadors for the Western lacrosse movement. They have laid a solid foundation for the younger generations to build on, and we wish them nothing but the best as they head to the next level.”
Thirteen years ago the initial efforts from Adrenaline were focused on encouraging recruiters to travel west to watch Western players in their own element. What has kept recruiters coming back are the current western-born NCAA players that are having a powerful impact on the collegiate game. Many of these collegiate players who we all watch throughout the spring are previous Adrenaline All-Americans and products of the Adrenaline Recruiting System. Notable past All-American players who have already proved themselves worthy contenders at the next level are Ryan Laplante, Challen Rogers, Michael Hernandez, Tanner Scales, Lucas Gradinger, Aaron Madaisky, Kieran Eissler, & Dakota Rohlin to name a few.
These past players have set high expectations for the talent in Adrenaline All-American game, but this year’s line-up is equipped to rise to the occasion. The 2014 rosters include players from nine states and one province: Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Texas, Minnesota, Nevada, and British Columbia. Key players in this year’s All-American game include Jake Seau (Duke), Justin Anderson (UNC), Colin MacIlvanie (Maryland), Trent Schulte (Bellarmine), Joe Lang (Harvard), Peirre Byrne (Notre Dame), & Joe Reid (Denver).
