His game sounds a lot like Zed's.from the Iroquois tryout article
Chase Scanlon, Midfield, Silver Creek High School (N.Y.)/Seneca, 2018
With a tall, thin frame Scanlon almost seems to glide around the field effortlessly. And his ability to cover ground in the open field is very impressive, especially as he barrels down on a defense with the ball in his stick. The predominately right-handed midfielder showed very well in transition, making the right decisions and not forcing the issue. When things turned to even numbers and he was asked to dodge, it wasn’t pure speed that got him an edge, but rather his ability to make contact and slip off defenders. It was hard to tell he was one of the younger attendees based on his comfort level and the pace at which he played.

Chase Scanlan, Midfield, IMG Academy (Fla.), 2018 – Syracuse
Chase plays a really creative and fast brand of ball. He has slippery moves, using toe drags, and roll backs, constantly playing off the leverage and momentum created by his defenders contact. Tough, and resilient on his dodges, just when you think he is being bottled up is just when he has you right where he wants you. He has long legs and can run the field. His height and range allow him to see the field and he’s not afraid to make a feed across or inside after he using a hesitation to freeze a defender. A very crafty stick, he had multiple behind-the-back goals, a behind-the-back assist and was making plays with one hand while absorbing double teams. He definitely resembles a young Zeddie Williams with his size and the bounce in his step and his open-field play, where he just gets after the ball and makes plays and shows a lot of stamina, Taking a look at some of the guys in his family, look for Scanlan to fill out and become a monster threat from the midfield. The Syracuse commit could be one of the most promising in their current 2018 class.
