Maybe it is because of the growth of social media, but I don't recall as big of a deal when Lyle and Miles got to Albany as we are seeing with Tehoka. Maybe it is because the overall team is better and the expectations are higher now than in 2011?

They wouldn't be making it such a big deal if it wasn't for the success and attention Lyle and Miles brought over the four years at Albany, and the success they are having professionally.

It is going to be the leadership of Connor and the seniors that will make the difference. We have the skill to achieve what we haven't achieved in the past which is going to the final four and further. Fields has the opportunity to do what the Queener and Thompson squads didnt.

Be nice to know if all recruits are on campus and participating - Has Coach Marr mentioned any of the rest of them. The two Def from Cali for example? WOuld like to know how they are fitting in?

I don't know of any recruits who didn't make it to campus.

 

As far as other recruits take this with a grain of salt but based upon what I hear from campus, which isn't a ton, andwhat I saw this summer, the more immediate impact players are obviously Tehoka, and then several of the midfielders.

 

The two freshmen goalies are very good, and should provide a lot of competition going forward. TD has the job until hegraduates but Jones appears to be very capable.

 

Just based upon the summer tournament and having seen Tanner Hay play in person in high school ball, I would say the impact defensive players are in the 2018 class. The kid from Avon shut down an UA AA and a very high ranked middie going to Ohio State, and he won a few face off's. The other pole this summer, blanking on his name right now, but he is slightly smaller, but more athletic version of Burdette.

 

Wanted to edit and say as far as what I have been told the freshmen poles are doing well, but that there are a lot of talented, more experienced guys ahead of them so wouldn't expect any of them to make an impact this year.

GreatDanes06, you made me very nervous for a moment ... "this happened" ... I said, "uh-oh" ... sigh of relief, followed by a "wowzers" ... not my sport to play, but certainly can appreciate the skill/artistry ... sooooooo, looking forward to the spring

I didn't get a lot, but sounds like with the extra scrimmage at Syracuse the coaches substituted more liberally in

both games. I don't know what the goalie breakdown was against Hopkins. The one thing that there are really missing sounds like Osika's big body on defense. Sounds like some work to be done on coordination of slides with Osaka, Lasda, and Glancy lost to graduation.

 

I don't know if any starters didn't play.
