2016. Middie. Mt. Lebanon. Yale commit.
Brian Ward does this.
There are current senior middies that don’t look as good as Ward did as a sophomore.
There hasn’t been a more dominant player in Pittsburgh since Jimmy Mullen (Class of 2005), who not surprisingly was a Mt. Lebanon midfielder and also went onto play in the Ivy League, Dartmouth.
With Sam White and Brian Kelly gone, Ward could be poised for a monster season from a point production standpoint. And, if you’ve seen him play this fall or winter, you’ve seen someone who is dodging with full confidence that there isn’t an individual or double team in Western Pennsylvania that can stop him.
God bless the opposition.
Enjoy watching an apex athlete for the final three months of his high school career.
Levi McCrady – 2016 – Middie – Fox Chapel – Brown commit
No player has commanded more attention from his section opponents over the last two seasons than McCrady. No reason that changes in 2016. Given some graduation losses, if Fox Chapel returns to the playoffs, you could easily make a case for McCrady as league MVP, which is of course a different award than PoY.
Calvin Sargent – 2017 – Attackman – Moon – Cleveland State commit
Despite the obvious weaknesses of D2 relative to D1, if Sargent puts up 70 plus points it would be difficult for him not to garner consideration for PoY. Similar situation as McCrady. Doesn’t have the same talent around him as Ward. Will be the best player in D2 this spring thanks to an undeniable motor and smooth stick skills.
