This Defenseman From Texas Is An Absolute Beast

Texas has been pumping out talent and sending players to play at the next level for years. A few reasons can be attributed to the prime hotbed of athletes and coaches with east coast roots. Case in point, Cade Saustad. Cade is a 6’4″ defenseman who happens to be coached by Max Bartig and Nick Disimile, former Syracuse and Loyola players respectively. Cade is just entering freshman year and is already an absolute stud. He could certainly work on his left hand, but he’s got the wheels, field awareness and takeaway skills to compensate for those faults. After all, he is only a freshman and he will only get better. Check out the great highlight tape below and judge his skills for yourself.

Lacrosse Playground

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
