Warrior National Prospect Invite Launched to Recognize Outstanding High School Lacvrosse Players
Two-day recruiting showcase provides new forum for NCAA coaches to scout prequalified players
PORTSMOUTH, NH. – April 5, 2016 – To provide an additional way to get “best in class” high school student athletes in front of prominent NCAA lacrosse coaches from every division, LEGACY Global Sports is launching the Warrior National Prospect Invite. This two-day lacrosse showcase will be held on July 19 and 20 in Richmond, Va., and is presented by Warrior Sports, a premier manufacturer of high-performance, cutting-edge gear for lacrosse athletes.
To be eligible to participate, high-achieving “uncommitted” high school lacrosse players from the 2018 and 2019 graduating classes must be nominated via the Warrior National Prospect Invite website. Nominations are free of charge and are open to anyone, including parents, family, friends and the players themselves. Accompanying each nomination will be a coach referral attesting to that individual’s athletic acumen and personal character.
An independent panel of coaches, school administrators and recruiting experts will evaluate all nominations received, and will select a diverse group of high school boys and girls that demonstrate exceptional lacrosse skills and sportsmanship on the field, achieve a certain academic standard, and display integrity and respect in the classroom and community.
“What makes the Warrior National Prospect Invite so exciting is that it provides NCAA lacrosse coaches with a terrific opportunity to scout uncommitted ‘best in class’ players that have met a rigorous selection criteria,” explained Chris Boland, general manager of the Warrior National Prospect Invite. “We’ve made it easier for coaches to find outstanding talent for their colleges and universities by prequalifying the student athletes and giving them a two-day lacrosse forum in which to demonstrate their skills.”

Regional representatives for boys and girls will include Amy Cross (Wm Penn Charter), Sean Delaney (St. Joseph’s Prep), Brian Farrell (Boys Latin School), Eileen Ghent (Monmouth University),Bo Perriello (St. Anne’s-Belfield), Tom Rooney (Half Hollows Hills West High School), Chelsea Rosiek (St. Bonaventure University) and Andrew Whipple (Pittsford High School).
