    JT Stirpe, Attack, Vestal (N.Y.)/Orange Crush

    Stirpe showed himself as a high-IQ, skilled and quick attackman who can feed and score off the dodge and has an excellent stick that’s hard to keep up with. He carries with an intensity and he moves the stick fast in his hands. And one thing that’s noticeable is that he can change hands effortlessly, which helps him makes the most out of the most basic of dodges. He’s very slippery and he goes hard to the cage and looks to feed before he commits to getting to the cage. And he does consistently find ways to break down a defender, with a quick change of direction, a split and the ability to release the ball from low angles on the run. We saw him put together a multi-point game early in the day, first assisting on a goal in front by carrying with his head up, going hard at his man and rifling a short pass on the money. He scored a goal by bursting to his left off a hitch, jumping and banging the ball inside the far post just a couple yards above GLE. Stirpe rides like crazy, and he helped make life tough on a number of clears for the opposing team. He helped break up one that to a goal because of his efforts. He is slippery, good off the ground and can make plays rapidly in set offense and unsettled scenarios. He sees the field and anticipates the action. He makes a lot of plays, some of them without the ball in his stick, to help his team.

    Have heard some less then promising comments about Stirpe this summer. Was told he has struggled with turnovers and there is some concern about his ability to handle the mental aspects of playing high end Div 1. Obviously he still has 2 years of HS ball to go. Hoping for continued growth and development.
