Massachusetts is loaded with top prep and high school talent, dominating the region with the bulk of the top players heading into this season.
For the next 10 weeks, New England Lacrosse Journal will prepare for prep and high school lacrosse season by counting down the best prep and high school players throughout New England. Starting today, and continuing every Monday, we’ll count down the 100 best players in Massachusetts. Beginning Wednesday, we’ll begin counting down the top 100 players collectively from the other five New England states.
We conferred with coaches and scouts throughout the state for this comprehensive list of the best prep and high school players in the state — from private, to MIAA, to club teams — heading into the 2018 season.
New England Lacrosse Journal has always done a terrific job covering lacrosse in all of New England.
This year they took on a BIG challenge on ranking the top 100 High School Players in New England Schools.
Laxachusetts Top List with 45 Players:
Without a doubt a project that will always come under scrutiny but great for the game in our region and great to identify some of the top players in the region.
We are very proud to lead ALL clubs programs in New England with the players named to the top 100 list. The next closest clubs on the list had 24 players listed. (which is a great accomplishment).
Laxachusetts proudly has 27 players in the top 50 list and a total of 45 players named to the top 100.
We certainly feel we could have had a lot more on the list but we know that any of our players not named to this list will just use this as motivation to lead their team this Spring.
Congrats to all of the players from all over New England and all of the Club and High School Programs.
Shout out to our 45 boys for making the list. Keep outworking the competition.
