PLAYERS WHO IMPRESSED AT TRYOUTS: John Duffy- The athletic lefty and Loyola commit was impressive showing his ability get to the cage and had a nose for the goal. Jason Simaan- showed a dominance at the face-off X that should help the west gain possessions. Garrett Bullet- The Rutgers was one of many poles that stood out on a team that is strongest on this side of the ball. Bullett is fast, tough and aggressive. Nate Marano- The Denver commit is tough, physical and long and creates matchup problems for defenses. Marano can do a little bit of everything and has a strong left hand. Connor Mccroskey- The Harvard commit is a true quarterback behind the cage and sees the plays before they develop. He is quick and shifty from behind and his vision is uncanny. He is also relentless in his riding.
COACHING STAFF: Jono Zizzi (Torrey Pines HS, CA), Matt Plitnick (Columbine HS, CO), Beau Pich (Brophy Prep,AZ), and Alex Weber (Harvard Westlake School,CA).
