    Is it Cam's kid?

    Cam was a beast in college. His shoulders were as wide as he was tall. He could shoot the ball about 5"s off the ground from midfield to the goal.

    Troy Lauder, M, Salisbury School, Conn./SweetLax 2016 - I could spend a day talking about the players on the SweetLax 2016 team, which features many of the best players in Rochester. But what a dynamic and exciting player Lauder is. He's a tough, sneaky shortstick defender, but can do a lot more. Lauder would invert on some possessions, showing tremendous vision as a setup man working from X. He also showed off his great shot, once scoring on a low-to-high yank from outside. He's also excellent on ground balls and plays a really tough game. It should be interesting to see what kind of player he is when he gets to Syracuse in a few years.

    Troy Lauder, Transition, Haudenosaunee


    Lauder, who hails from the Kahnawake reserve, was one of the Iroquois’ most important two-way players. Able to play physical defense and use his athleticism, Lauder was tasked with marking some of the better Canadian offensive threats when he was on the floor and showed his Division I potential with excellent speed up the floor, awareness playing defense and in transition and showing the flare for the big play on the offensive end. Lauder scored one of the most impressive goals of the weekend, corralling a loose ball below the crease and then extending his body for a completely horizontal dive from behind to stuff the ball into the net near the end of Sunday’s game against Canada. Lauder, while also logging a lot of tough minutes on defense, was a major contributor for the Iroquois on the opposite end of the floor, putting up two goals and two assists in the first go against Canada. Lauder attends Salisbury at a 2017 and is committed to play at Syracuse.

    Love the reference of his ability to play "two-way," with speed and finishing in transition. Old school Syracuse-brand lacrosse.

    A two paragraph sequence from the article caught my attention:

    ********
    Lauder is frustrated, as he sees politics and image playing as motivating the decision to leave him off the team.
    “The way I see it, is, I thought they wanted to win,” he said. “I thought everybody’s goal is, ‘we want to win.’ But after all it seems like, ‘how do we want to look?’”

    The Eastern Door wrote a story during last year’s world indoor championship about National Lacrosse League defencemen Bill O’Brien, whose father is Onondaga, but mother is Irish-American, and was left off the Nationals squad in place of three other non-passport holders.
    ********

    Troy speaks of "image" and "how do we want to look," and I found it vague.

    Does the next paragraph basically hint to a ethnic/racial bias against him? Not sure why else O'Brien's mother's heritage would be brought up.

    Wow! Way to keep the D honest with a half-second glance. Allows for the 1 v 1, and he had his way. Great move and field awareness.
