Team Previews and Players to Watch

MDLX Events and Madlax Media are proud to present the DMVLAX ‘Virginia Summer Lacrosse Championships” a one of a kind event that will feature all of the top public schools in the state of Virginia, many of which were ranked in the DMVLAX Preseason ‘Top 20’. What makes this event special, is that we are allowing all Class of 2020 players to join their squads one last time on the lacrosse field. The tournament will take place at the state of the art Evergreen Sportsplex and the entire event will be covered by the Madlax Media staff. Featured below are the teams attending and which players you have to keep an eye on, as this Championship series features a bevy of future Division 1 talent!

WARHAWKS LACROSSE (Madison) 

It would be unfair to not start this list with the VHSL 6A defending state champions, who were ranked  #9 in the DMVLAX ‘Top 20’ as they looked to repeat as state champions. The two players to watch, according to Head Coach Aaron Solomon are close defensemen Joey Jorgenson and attackman Pat Ruffalo. A team captain and All-Region honoree, Jorgensen is a 6’4 beast of a defender who is a matchup nightmare for opposing attackmen. On the offensive side of the ball, Ruffalo, who was awarded All-State honors for his 88 point performance his junior year, including the game winning goal in the Regional Championship. Ruffalo, who is incredibly versatile and plays with a high motor  is bound to play at Essex, a Juco powerhouse before transferring to a D1 program. 

RAMS LACROSSE (Robinson)

Robinson, the DMVLAX ‘Top 20” #11th ranked team has been the face of Virginia public school lacrosse for some time, winning countless state championships and producing PLL star Jack Rowlett. But the Rams haven’t won a state title in a few years since the emergence of Madison and Oakton as powerhouse programs; however, the Rams are loaded with talent as always and are surely one of the teams to watch out for. The two players to watch for the Rams are attackmen Brett Jackson and A/M Charlie Reynolds. Jackson, who was recently named to the Baltimore Under-Armour underclass team is a massive left with an absolute cannon of a shot that he is able to get off in a millisecond. While Reynolds is only a 2022, he might be the most talented player in the entire event. A freakishly athletic player who can operate both at X or up top, Reynolds is ranked in the Top 50 Recruits in the class of 2022 and will surely end up at a Division 1 powerhouse. 

COUGARS LACROSSE (Oakton)

Oakton shocked the world in 2018, winning their first state championship since 2006. The program has been on the rise for the last few years and they should compete for a shot at the ‘Virginia Lacrosse Championship.’ The players to watch for the Cougars are their two stud midfielders Blake Marcey and Alex Lanier. Marcey, who is committed to play at DIII Power Christopher Newport, is a dual sport athlete who is a physical dodger and can play both sides of the ball, but excels dodging from up top. Lanier, who alongside Marcey is a team captain is an explosive midfielder with an excellent first step and a groundball machine in the middle of the field. 

WOLVERINES LACROSSE (West Potomac) 

While West Potomac doesn’t have the storied past of the programs previously listed, they are a program that has been on the rise the past few years, winning their District a number of times; however, their 2022 class is by far the best class that they have ever had and are a program to keep an eye out for in the Virginia public school seen the next few years. Offensively, the player to watch is Adian McClanahan (Mid 2022), a tall dodging midfielder who is excellent at dodging down the alley. The player to watch defensively may be the best defensemen playing tomorrow despite only being a 2022. George Stamos, younger brother of former Wolverine and VMI bound Attackmen AJ Stamos, is a beast of a defensemen, and one of the best players in the entire 2022 class. After dominating at the Under Armour underclass games last year, Stamos’s name has been on every college coaches radar. 

CAVALIERS LACROSSE (Woodson)

Woodson has been one of the top programs in the area for some time now, producing a number of Division 1 players and winning the 2017 VHSL 6A State Championship. The two players to keep an eye out for on the Cavaliers are their pair of stud attackmen, Carson Hoffman and Scott Sloan, both of which were 4 year letterman and part of the 2017 State Championship Team. Hoffman, who is bound for DIII Christopher Newport this fall earned 1st Team All-Conference honors last year leading the Cavs in goals and finishing second in assists. Sloan is bound for DIII Ursinus College, a program on the rise having won their conference last season. Sloan has fantastic vision, leading the Cavs in the helpers department, and finishing the year #16th in the DMV in assists according to the Washington Post. 

BOBCATS LACROSSE (Battlefield) 

The #14 Ranked team in ‘DMVLAX Top 20’, Battlefield has been a mainstay in the Virginia Public School lacrosse scene for some years, notably for upsetting Long Island powerhouse Cold Spring Harbor years ago and producing multiple time All-Patriot League LSM Parker Baddley. The players two watch for the Bobcats are both on the defensive side of the ball in the form of two uncommitted 2021 studs, Brandon Dappen (Def/LSM) and Nathan George (Goalie). Dappen is a defensemen who to put it simply, this kid is just a pleasure to watch.  Really smart defender with good feet and great command of the defense. He does all the little things right and can lay the hammer on checks – in a good way. George is netminder with fantastic fundamentals and has the unique ability to track the ball and drives his hands through. He has a good command of the defense and can get the ball out quickly on the clear.

STALLIONS LACROSSE (South County) 

The Stallions have been a state title contender for some years now, having been a dominant force in the Patriot District; however, they have never been able to put all the pieces together. The Stallions have produced some incredibly talented players who have gone on to have fantastic careers at the Division 1 level (Kevin Quigly, Bryant;  David Symmes, Army; and Bryce Nalls, Quinnipiac). Despite the success of all of these players, the Stallions might have their best player to date in the form of 2022 midfielder Brock Spalding. Brock is the younger brother of a former Stallion stud Dillon Spalding who currently plays football at Virginia Tech. Spalding is an incredible athlete with a very versatile skill set and high motor. While he already has double digit offers for football, don’t be surprised if Brock ends up as a Dual-Sport athlete at an ACC/Big 10 program. The other player to keep at eye out for is attackmen Shawn Bounerba, a shifty player with excellent dodging ability and an incredibly accurate shooting stroke.

CHARGERS LACROSSE (Chantilly) 

The Chargers have been one of the top Virginia publics for the last two decades, winning multiple state championships and numerous regional titles, but their last state title came in 2013, and last regional title came in 2015, so the Chargers have something to prove tomorrow. The key to Chantilly's success starts with their netminder, Cameron Goodloe, one of the Top Ranked goalies in the entire DMV, who is committed to play at Michigan. Goodloe has a huge frame and fantastic handspeed, giving him the ability to keep the Chargers in any game.  Anchoring the defense in front of Goodloe is another D1 commit, Daniel Morris, a fantastic cover defender with the ability to push the ball in transition. Morris is bound to play for VMI.

'Friendly Fireworks' Game Previews

Madlax Media is proud to present the DMVLAX ‘Friendly Fireworks’ hosted by MDLX Events, a one of a kind play-day featuring some of the best club teams in the entire country! Madlax will be hosting Next Level 2023, DC Express 2022, and Next Level 2021 on July 6th in three back to back games, all of which will be live streamed on the Madlax YouTube for College Coaches, families, and fans to watch! Every one of the teams playing is either ranked nationally by US Club Lax and has nationally ranked players according to Inside Lacrosse and the Madlax Media DMVLAX Player Rankings. To provide some insight and analysis into the three matchups, here is our preview that includes key matchups, players to watch, and much more! Enjoy, and be sure to tune into the livestream on Monday, July 6th at 3:20 PM est!

Game 1 Preview: 

Madlax DC Dogs 2023 vs. Next Level Spartans 2023 @ 3:20 PM

The first game of the day features a matchup between two Top 20 teams in the 2023 class according to the U.S. Club Lacrosse Rankings, as the #16 ranked Next Level Spartans take on the #1 ranked Madlax D.C. Dogs. 

Following up a dominant fall with a Club Nationals Tournament Title in January, the D.C. Dogs earned the top spot in the US Club Lacrosse Class of 2023 Rankings. The Dogs are a well balanced unit at every position but the players to watch offensively are Colin ‘BBQ’ Burns (Att, Georgetown Prep) the quarterback of the offense with tremendous vision who seemingly finishes everything, and Caulley Deringer (Att, Episcopal), a lefty sniper/slasher who can shoot from anywhere on the field. Defensively, the Dogs are led by Mac Christmas (LSM, Georgetown Prep), the #1 ranked player in the ‘DMVLAX Class of 2023 Rankings’ and Declan Monahan (G, Gonzaga), a brick-wall of a keeper who commands the defensive unit. But the Dogs’ biggest strength might be their midfield. Larry Horning, Rafer Bradshaw and Dylan Frost make up a 1st line that might be the best in the country; however, what makes the midfield unit truly great is that they can run both 1st and 2nd lines interchangeably. 

In order to pull the upset against the Dogs, Next Level will have to rely heavily on its absolutely stacked defense, which features four poles ranked in our ‘DMVLAX Class of 2023 Rankings’: #2 Pasha Hakimi (St. Albans), #15 Will Cohen (Landon), #17 Nico Schemer (Landon), and #18 Will Abramson (Landon). The player to watch in this group is the long-stick midfielder Hakimi, whose size, athleticism, and ability to push transition make him a force between the lines and one of the top players in the entire class. Down low, Will Cohen, younger brother of Hopkins bound Jake Cohen, commands the close defense. One of the key matchups to watch in this game will be at the Faceoff dot, as the clash between two of the top 2023 Faceoff Specialists in the country, Jackie Weller (DC Dogs, Georgetown Prep) and Tre Moore (Next Level, McDonough) will surely be a tightly contested battle at the X.

Game 2 Preview: 

Madlax Capital 2022 vs. DC Express 2022 @ 5:00 PM

In our ‘DMVLAX’ Featured Game of the Day, the US Club Lax 16th ranked nationally Madlax 2022 takes on the 9th ranked DC Express in a matchup that is sure to provide fireworks on the field. Both teams are loaded with players nationally and regionally ranked by Inside Lacrosse, US Club Lax, NLF, Madlax Media, among other media outlets. As such, this game is can’t miss! Enjoy the preview of both teams below.

Madlax 2022 is an offensive powerhouse, led by an attack unit made up by the NLF’s #39th ranked player in the country Will McCullough(SSSAS), a shifty lefty with a beautiful outside stroke, who is joined by the massive lefty Zak Ohlerking (Landon), and Whit Crawford(SSSAS) who has tremendous vision as a facilitator. Their midfield is led by the NLF’s #53rd ranked player, Charlie Reynolds, a freakishly athletic midfielder with a fantastic outside shot and Brock Spalding, another beast of an athlete, who holds multiple Division 1 Football offers and has the potential to be a dual sport athlete at the next level. Defensively, the player to keep an eye on is Charlie Muller (Bullis) the #51st ranked player in the country according to NLF. A massive, bruising defensemen, Muller is a force both on ball and in slide packages. Commanding the defense is Tristan Lenard (G, Patriot), a keeper with tremendously quick hands and fantastic clearing abilities.

On the other hand, DC Express maintains a more balanced unit from top to bottom. While they do not have the same amount of juggernauts that Madlax has, Express has incredible depth at almost every position. At attack, they are quarterbacked by Eliot Dubick, the #20 ranked player in the ‘DMVLAX Class of 2022 Rankings’, and younger brother of former UMD star Louis Dubick, but their biggest weapon on the offensive side of the ball is #3rd ranked James Mattan (Att, Gonzaga), a 6'2 beast of an attackmen who was one of the catalysts to the DC Command Team winning the Under Armour Underclass games. Defensively, the player to keep an eye on is Ryan Splain, the 4th ranked player in the class, who is a rangey long stick midfielder with tremendous takeaway ability. Their biggest strength; however, comes in the form of their 1st line midfield, made up entirely of players ranked in the DMVLAX ‘Class of 2022 Rankings’ and features Tucker Wade (Bullis), Cameron Brown (Landon), and Marcus Pedone (Richard Montgomery), who make it impossible for opposing defenses to pick who to pole. The key for Express to win, will be the play of Faceoff Specialist Mac Eldridge (Georgetown Prep) who is widely considered one of the best Fogos in the entire 2022 class.

DMVLAX TOP 20 Power Rankings - EVERY MONDAY ALL SEASON

These rankings are created from the votes of many DMVLAX head coaches. Players & Parents - be sure to encourage your head coaches to vote via email, dmvlax@madlax.com.  Click HERE to see teams eligible for DMVLAX rankings. It is all the teams in US Lacrosse Potomac Chapter. 

POWER RANKING NOTES 3.16.20:

Gonzaga remains at the top of our latest DMVLAX Power Rankings, as head coach Casey O’Neill’s squad took down national power Boy’s Latin a shootout. Bullis remains as our #2 despite falling to McDonough last week, they also throttled DMVLAX’s #10th ranked DeMatha by a score of 17-6. The St. John’s Cadets continued their undefeated roll last week, defeating IAC power and DMVLAX’s #6th ranked Landon Bears in a close-knit battle. Georgetown Prep regains the four spot after crushing Inside Lacrosse ranked Gilman 15-8, while St. Stephen’s drops to five but remains undefeated at 3-0 following a win over the Hun School. Bishop Ireton continues to climb the ladder, adding a decisive win over Potomac to their resume and taking the #12 seed in our latest poll. DeMatha falls to #10 after their lopsided loss at the hands of Bullis.

 

This will be our last DMVLAX Power Poll until the seasons have recommenced. We are unsure of each league’s plans for the continuation of their seasons; however, we will cover any updates diligently. We wish you all the best of health and well being in these times.

Preview:                                                                                                                        

Our Madlax Media DMVLAX Game of the Week features a marquee matchup between two of the top programs in the DMV, as #3rd ranked St. John’s hosts #6th ranked Landon in an WCAC vs. IAC showdown. In this matchup last season, the Bears defeated the Cadets in a back and forth battle by a score of 8-6.

We predict this year’s game will once again be a low scoring affair, as both defenses have been stout thus far this season. St. John’s has allowed only 8 goals against in their first two games this season, with much credit due to Harvard bound net-minder George Alvarez, who has been a brick wall between the pipes thus far this year. While Landon has given up a total of just 12 goals against in their two games thus far.

Landon looks to rebound from a 9-6 defeat to MIAA powerhouse St. Paul’s, in which their offense appeared stagnant and they were outmuscled in the groundball battle, while St. John’s hopes to keep their hot streak going following wins over DMVLAX’s #5th ranked Georgetown Prep and Philly based Penn Charter.

The biggest factor to keep an eye on in this matchup is how well Landon’s top defensemen Hopkin’s commit and Inside Lacrosse’s #16th ranked junior Jake Cohen matches up with arguably the best attackmen in the DMV, Georgetown commit and Inside Lacrosse’s #20 ranked senior, T.J. Haley. The other factor to keep in mind, is the health of Landon’s top midfielder, Penn commit Stephen Bou, who has been battling an injury and is a game time decision.

RECAP:
In one of the more exciting game of the season so far, St. John's holds off Landon 11-10 at home in a back and forth game that had 5 leads changes. St. John's improves to 3-0 and continues to improve. Eight players for SJC scored a goal proving their depth is as good as any team this spring.  Landon had two shots to tie the game in the final minute, both inside 10 yards by Graham Hertzberg, but George Alvarez, the SJC goalie, shielded them off making his two biggest saves of the game by far to capture the win. The SJC bench stormed him at the buzzer and almost t dog-piled him in an incredible nail-biter ending. 

Senior, Trent Stewart, earned game MVP honors scoring 2 goals and dishing out 2 assists in an impressive and confident fashion from the midfield. TJ Haley, the recently ranked DMVLAX, #1 attackman, QB'ed the offense and controlled the game as he normally does in dominant style. Riley Figueiras did a great job holding Landon's top attackman, Joey Graham, to only 2 points. Brian Katz and Blake Boyd also scored to goals for SJC. 

Landon was led by Graham Hertzberg, #3 Ranked DMVLAX attackman, once again who had 4 goals. Cooper Johnson (OWU) senior middie threw in 3 impressive goals while ZAk Ohlerking has 3 slick assists versus the pesky SJC Zone defense. Nich Kopp, FOGO, continued his winning ways going 62%. He has been a bright light for the Bears all season. Jake Cohen, Ryan Giles and Cullen Brown (who had to guard TJ Haley and did a fine job) played very well on defense but it wasn't enough as they allowed 11 goals.
