2020 NLL Draft: Stamper's Mock Draft
4 Halifax (Compensatory pick—Matt Vinc)
Harrison Matsuoka, LT, Okotoks Raiders Jr A & Stony Brook
The Thunderbirds have plenty of forwards, so adding another defender—and in this case one with serious transition chops—makes sense for them. I feel like they might be interested in Dodds, too, though. While the right side is already pretty young, his grit and finishing ability might help get the most out of the other elements of Halifax's offence.

+
Speed.

-
Hasn't had much chance to compete on bigger stages than the RMLL.

Comp
Damon Edwards. Matsuoka takes after the Toronto Rock player's ability to apply his blazing speed to create transition but still have the control to shoot accurately.

The problem is the same: commuters, and residents who go home on the weekend. If you are either of those types of people, you are no friend of mine. Perhaps having a train station directly on campus was a bad thing all along. And the school keeps admitting these types of loser students.

Commuters: these are likely the poorest students in the entire student body. Whenever I ask people why they commute, the answer is always the same: money. Many say that even if the school opened up 15 new dorm buildings, they still would never dorm because they could never afford it. It’s probably too politically incorrect nowadays to say that the school should stop accepting these poor students, but there’s no other way around it: by being too poor to live on or near campus, you are killing the atmosphere of the school.

Residents who go home on the weekend: you people are just losers. You don’t even have the excuse of being poor because you already pay for a dorm room. You are just a legal 18-22 year old adult who is too weak to live on your own that you need to go home to mommy and daddy on the weekend. You’re just a child. You can’t go 4 measly months away from your parents? You need to ditch every weekend to go home and see them? Loser. What ever happened to independence? Going to college to escape their grasp? How mentally weak are you? This behavior is despicable.

Other things: the lack of a traditional college town for students to retreat to that is easily walkable from campus. Until you find a way to physically move Port Jefferson, count that out. This is where I rant about the Stony Brook townspeople. Whining about your property values. IDGAF about your property values! The fact that it’s been 60 years since this university was created and there’s no “Main Street” or bar row or giant gala of businesses catered to the college makes me sick! Radical revolution needs to happen. The school needs to tell the townies to F off and take the initiative to build this on its own.

Malatras can also eat a fat one. He is a bad, bad man, and he is a graduate of “SUNY Empire State”, whatever the hell that is. Doesn’t Sound like he will have our interests in his mind. Again this school is restricted by “SUNY”. A cursed four letter word that solely oppressed SBU by restricting its full potential. Cuomo has not done a single good thing for SBU since he arrived. He is evil and must be defeated.

Can't forget to mention the huge number of STEM kids as well. They're "smart", great, well they have the social skills of a brick and an aversion to anything related to sex or drugs. And their virgin asses probably add little to no social value to the school as well.

while i dont necessarily agree/disagree with this, i do think if we get the look and feel of a junior college, we are in danger of becoming just that- a junior college.  image is not everything, but it's a lot.

it's the issue i keep talking about- and no, we weren't even on his radar (LC, UVa, UNC, SU, MD).

i know i'm a broken record but kids look at colleges today based on social media reviews- and here are some of the latest:


(if you can get past the atrocious language) everyone has the same conclusion- there’s nothing to do on campus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtkQb-9W4CU

and the same thing, hard to make friends (give a few minutes only): https://youtu.be/9hTEVkifNlg?t=111

social life again (give this 2 minutes): https://youtu.be/YR-RvjbuDN8?t=390

lacking in campus life, no one around, no events: https://youtu.be/nY_X3ZDlHZk?t=561


and yes, it is now worse with a global pandemic.

25. ALBANY
2020 record: 2-3

Last seen: Scaring the daylights out of Maryland, scoring five of the last six goals in a 14-13 loss to the Terrapins in College Park.

Initial forecast: Let’s start with a bit of a curveball, OK? One of the more entertaining under-the-radar questions left unanswered in the 2020 season was whether the Great Danes would eventually win just enough faceoffs or stop just enough shots to get by and climb back to the top of the America East after a one-year hiatus. Albany had some of its classic mojo working (tied for fourth nationally in assists per game, 14th in shooting percentage), but it was also 65th in scoring defense and 68th in faceoff percentage. The big names on offense (Tehoka Nanticoke, Jakob Patterson, Corey Yunker, Graydon Hogg and Ron John) all appear set to return. College lacrosse is a little more fun when the Dane Train is rolling, and it may very well be in an America East that has some other interesting teams to take note of (Stony Brook and UMBC among them).

2020 NLL Draft: Stamper's Top 50 Prospects — 11-20

**15 Harrison Matsuoka LT, Okotoks Raiders Jr A & Stony Brook
Blazing speed and good stick skills (he had double-digit goal totals in each of his last two Jr A seasons) prepare Harrison Matsuoka to make the transition to the pro game smoothly. As with so many other players, a year of senior lacrosse would have been huge for him; he'll get it after he completes his extra year at Stony Brook and before he heads to an NLL camp, but it would have been nice for teams to get a look at him playing against men before having to decide at what point they're comfortable taking him.
