ESPN color commentator Paul Carcaterra had the following to say about each of the four.
Paul Rabil: “Paul is setting a new standard by which all future midfielders will be judged. He has an uncommon blend of pure athleticism/skill and is truly a once in a generation type of talent.”
Peet Poillon: “Peet’s quickness, ability to separate himself from defenders and his unique shooting style make him a scoring threat every time he steps onto a field.”
Kyle Sweeney: “Kyle is possibly the best long stick middie of all time. The definition of shutdown defender meets offensive ignitor, Sweeney continues to change the outcome of games from the middle of the field.”
Drew Adams: “Drew is a true tactician in the cage and is masterful at playing all angles. He has the unique ability to turn a game around by not only making the save but converting the possession into a transition offense.”
“Their success is a true reflection of their commitment and dedication to the sport,” said John Gagliardi, president and founder of Maverik Lacrosse. “In our opinion they are not only all-stars, but pioneers of the game and we are thrilled to have them represent Maverik both on and off the field. ”
