SALISBURY 2019

Postby MrLax2U » Sat Sep 01, 2018 5:21 pm

To initiate our new forum I thought I'd quote from Dom Starsia's 50 years of lacrosse memories:

— It was early 1993, my first spring at Virginia and, in the snow, Roanoke was playing Salisbury on the Astroturf at Scott Stadium at 11:00am on a weekday morning. There was a short, stocky attackman from Salisbury who had ten goals that day in his first college contest. Tough as nails and couldn’t miss…..Jason Coffman broke every national scoring record and went on to the most decorated career in college lacrosse history.


Is there someone on the 2019 fall ball try out roster who can compare?

While not a scorer, from what I can tell, curious of the impact of Onondaga transfer SSDM Riley Ford. Could he be a solid replacement for Troy Miller?

Without being a Debbie Downer, sorry to say, but probably not. He was a generational talent.
Even with all the incredibly good talent there's been through the doors of Maggs the past two decades, there hasn't been one like him since.
And that is considering some VERY good players/scorers.

Great clip, Smell; thanks. Who was # 10 the goalie. A behind the back outlet pass... Wow.

I have to disagree on 1995 Gulls being the best ever D 3 lax team. I thought it was 2016 Gulls because they beat an absolutely great Tufts team for the NC.And what an ending.

Or maybe the 2012 team with the 2nd and 3rd point and goal scorers in Salisbury history.

I think you have to look at the numbers.
Got to like 2012. Thay had 12 All Americans.
7 first teamers.
Kids who didn't start were being named AA.
I think it's safe to say that's probably never happened in any other program.

2012 (12)
Sam Bradman (1st team)
Matt Cannone (1st team)
Ryan Clarke (1st team)
Tyler Granelli (1st team)
Erik Krum (1st team)
Dean Rossi (1st team)
Andrew Sellers (1st team)
Evan Hockel (3rd team)
Parker Dickerson (HM)
Tony Mendes (HM)
Zeke Smith (HM)
Alex Taylor (HM)

I'd love to see a historical, year-by-year roster break down for the Gulls to see which year had the most total eventual AAs on each roster.

Smell, you made me reconsider.

On a man to man analysis: Pick one (2012 or 2016) for your team. My picks:
Bradman no contest
Cannone v Blondino; the numbers say Cannone but he had Bradman to play off. Blondino
Clarke v Cirillo; Clarke led the great comeback against the Stangs but I say even
Mendes v Bromwell; Bromwell bigger, stronger
Granelli no contest
Krum v Kalama; Kalama
Rossi, Smith and Sherr v Tucker, Nowesnick and Leeds; RSS for me but Berkman may differ.
Sellers v Dabbs; Dabs but in a foxhole I’d want Sellers next to me. Tough and mean
Taylor v Reymann; even
Hockel v Ternahan; even
Dickerson v LaClair; LaClair a one man clearing machine

I think if they played, Bradman and Granelli tip the scales.

Berkman and the Gulls have a mountain to climb in 2019; probably higher than last year.

Gone are Tucker and Nowesnick, anchors of the close D plus the entire rope unit. Worse, the fist at the end of the rope, LeClair, was a one man clearing machine. And as we saw in the NC game the Gulls had trouble clearing at times plus Man Down was weak.

Offense is young with experience but the ending of the NC game was a bunch of wild shots. Shoulda slapped the Cardinals with a couple and at least sent the game to OT. No finisher. Years past the Gulls would ‘ve shredded a zone. Worse, they saw it in the earlier CNU games and didn’t adjust. Or maybe couldn’t.

Half the starters are big and fast enough to play defensive backfield in the SEC. Attack are under weight and need someone to crash defenses. Bromwell and Snyder are capable but play like gentle giants. Five offensive middies have potential and Berkman makes great lacrosse players. We’ll see.

Okay at goalie and XO needs work.

CAC has become a dangerous neighborhood. Hornets, Battlin Bishops, Stangs, Bullets, ShoMen, Cavs will be Gunning for Gulls.

Any word from fall ball and when the 2019 schedule will be released?

Noticed Gulls Maroon & Gold game scheduled for next Friday, Oct 26. Anyone headed down for this? Interested to see how they replace Nowesnick/Tucker.

Not sure who's healthy and in the mix but Borkowitz, Apgar and Murphy would be a good start with DiPeso, Kness and several others fighting for PT.

I'm also curious to see what Berkman does with Bromwell who seemed to get more confident as last season wore on. Size, speed, quick hands and a rocket shot.

And Snyder. A confident, concentrated Snyder could be an AA and lead the charge to #13 but.... Good start last year but then as others started to gel he regressed. Seemed to lose confidence.

Maroon and Gold game last night. The weather was not the greatest! I'd like to hear from somebody that went...the good, the bad, and hopefully no uglies!?

The word in SeaGull land after fall ball is that the offense is in great shape and defense needs a lot of improvement. The opposite from 2018.

The offense is deep and very good. If the defense can hold an opponent under 14 goals, offense should be able to carry the game. And I'd expect shot % to increase substantially above 2018 32%

It'll be interesting to see if anybody makes that giant step to be a legit POY candidate. Just about all of them have the size, strength and speed but greatness is 90% mental. Did the last 5 minutes of the 2018 NC game lite someone's fuse?

2019 is shaping up to be a very competitive year. Probably nine teams in the South are contenders and half as many in the North. Parity is creeping in. Two months to go.

Also heard offense could be high powered. Moroney maturing nicely and can rip from anywhere - similar to Cirillo back in the day (also donned #2). Ferarra running with Moroney and Melton in M&G game. Lots of upside with this kid. Eager to see what he can do.

1st mids should also bring firepower, especially if Bromwell makes the jump from 2nd mids. I like the thought of Bromwell/Gwin/Wongus on that 1st line.

As I have mentioned before, it's hard to replace two players like Tucker and Nowesnick but Borkowicz brings experience as a junior and he was paired with Sophs Apgar and Kness during M&G. Hoping Murphy is rehabbing well and gets on the field early - wonder if it will be up top as in 2017 on down close. Gulls GK Warren should see more shots with a young defense so needs to be ready to hold opposition to < 14 Gs as MrLax suggests.

Don't think you will see any POY candidates out of this group. Senior class is good but no elite players like Blondino, Tucker, Ternahan as in years past; Junior class has many strong contributors; Soph class still has many trying to find their way; Fresh - who knows??
