"Pretty embarrassing we haven’t been there in years." Desko has us back recruiting top notch defensemen the last couple years. Desko has gone all the way to Oregon to pick up the best of the best. Get ready for great success in the near future. We Are The Orangemen.Gonna be a really interesting fall. This team has some talent but a few kids really need to step up. Was wondering what you gentleman think who has to step up at each position. Give some names. I personally think the goaltender (whoever starts), cook, bomberry,,, and Quinn are going to be what brings this team over the top. We need to make it back to championship weekend. Pretty embarrassing we haven’t been there in years. we are CUSE
I’d agree except that kid at Yale is a midget and highly successful because of how fast/quick he is. Cook has that blistering quick twitch speed that I think is going to make him very hard to cover.I've watched Cook play, I'm not sold on him. He's 5'6 and I'm not sure he can go against 6'3 ACC defensemen. we shall see
I'm not sure why you're mentioning Owen Hill as a possible attackman. He scored 15 goals for the Hill Academy as a senior, and I thought he was a midfielder. And I will go ahead and sleep on Aburn. We hardly saw his name mentioned for any Boys Latin game and we hear a lot from Boys Latin. If he sees any time it is probably in an off-ball role, because we don't have much in that department now and that seems to be his natural role.Lots of expectation for the 2019 Orange adding some blue chips to a young talented team who certainly entertained last year! A solid def returning Kennedy, Mellen, Bomberry, Dipietro, Fernandez, Fusco, Helmer, Murphy and Cunningham.
The major factor is can we find some solid SSDMs, we have been spoilt in this position in past years but we need some guys to step up, I hate when we play close def or LSMs with shortys (although it is the correct coaching decision) I just think it shows that we are not recruiting correctly. With this years rule changes will it transpire that this is less important. I hope Dami steps up as he had an up and down first season but would love to see him succeed. I’d also keep Dearth at this position.
I am Kind of excited to see twins back on campus although I don’t think the Kims or anyone else can emulate the Gaits.
Cook can really compete for the 3rd attack spot and I think he’ll be a player that Desko talks about come the fall press conference. But don’t sleep on Seebold, Hill, Beckman or Aburn.
I’m not going to hype Mangan or Fiorini but they are a great size and can shoot but I’d still like to see Quinn break through and we have some depth at the midfield position.
Fresh blood at the faceoff X with Thornton and Washington should push Varello.
The general midfield size has improved with our freshman and we have really got a lot of attackman battling for 4 spots! As usual expect some Freshman to RS which again if I am being hyper critical the coaching staff have to be confident in their recruits and only recruit for open spots! It’s a bit of a mess. I think we ran too many players last year with a large roster but we need to let the horses run and the likes of Trimboli, Dordevic and Curry should be running the show for the majority of the game, if we don’t this may effect recruiting down the road.
Desko doesn't recruit the D, Rogers does and frankly, he does a majority of the recruiting. Most kids dont interact with Desko till they have a visit on the hill."Pretty embarrassing we haven’t been there in years." Desko has us back recruiting top notch defensemen the last couple years.
