Mackenzie Rope '20
Pitt Meadows, BC / Pitt Meadows Secondary
Midfield
6'1'' 165lbs
#17

Wow, 6'1'' and he's probably around 15?

Mackenzie was the most valuable player on offense, defense, as well as the faceoff x this weekend for BC. Starting at the x, his skills were immediately made apparent. Mackenzie’s hand speed and physical dominance allowed for him to go hot out the front and create his own fast breaks. When he wasn’t able to push the ball forward, he was still usually able to get the clamp and draw it back to his wings. While most faceoff guys take off once possession is gained, Mackenzie usually stayed on for a shift on the offensive end and contributed a number of goals and assists over the weekend. When things did happen to go the other way, his size and speed were pivotal in killing the odd man rushes and preventing transition goals from the other team.

“Mackenzie makes an impact in all areas of the game,” said Hoskins. “He played a key role for us in transition as one of our top face-off specialists and was one of our main contributors offensively.” sky is the limit as far as Rope’s future goes in field lacrosse, as long as he continues to put forth the tremendous work effort he’s shown so far. Selected as a U-13 tournament all-star at the Denver team camp last summer, this is the second straight year that Mackenzie has been named to the tournament all-star team after moving up an age division in 2012,” said Hoskins. “Mackenzie is a great athlete and looks to have a very bright future in outdoor lacrosse.”


Looks like he can be used to faceoff, play offense, play defense, etc.  And some time to grow!

After learning that yet another one of his players has decided on Stony Brook University, Sachem North coach Jay Mauro took a moment to reflect.

“It’s kind of crazy how it’s working out,” Mauro said.

Indeed, four current Flaming Arrows have now verballed to the Seawolves. And three former Sachem North players are current on the SBU roster.

Does any other high school from sea to shining sea have more players attending or en route to a D-I lax program? We think not. Stony Brook is located just eight miles north of Sachem North’s Lake Ronkonkoma campus.

The latest verbal came on Tuesday when 2016 attackman Tom Haun decided on SBU, a commitment first reported when it was made by Joe Lombardi on LaxLessons.com’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section.

“He is tough, quick and has a great stick,” Mauro said of the 5-foot-8, 140-pound Haun, a lefty. “He’s an extremely diligent worker with a great attitude. It’s team-first and all he cares about is winning.”

Now, here’s a Q&A with Tom on his commitment.

What were the main factors in your decision?
Stony Brook has a great academic reputation and is a university-teaching hospital. I have an interest in a career in the medical field. I enjoyed meeting (Stony Brook Head) Coach (Jim) Nagle and (Assistant) Coach (Craig) Gibson.I appreciated Coach Nagle’s great advice and no-pressure approach.

It will also be  great to play again at the college level with my teammates at Sachem North: Joe Caridi Mike Calvagna and Anthony Ross.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I also considered Maryland, Towson and Rutgers and visited all three schools.

What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
I think I have strong stick skills, very good change of direction and great vision on the field.

What area of your game do you need to work on?
I am working on getting stronger and faster and getting more velocity on my shot.

How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
I started playing in second grade and was lucky enough to have Dave Shanahan as my first coach. He made the game fun for second-graders and really gave us all a strong foundation of the game over the next couple of years.

I played a ton of hockey locally and for the Tour Roadrunners, a travel roller hockey team coached by Anthony Violante. Our team was a two-time North Roller hockey champion. I also played ice hockey, basketball, volleyball and football.

What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in?
Sachem stays together as a team over the summer and we play against all the elite travel teams and do very well.

I played for Suffolk in the Nassau/Suffolk Long Island Showcase at St. Joseph’s College.

Any final thoughts?
I want to thank Coach Mauro, (Assistant/Offensive Coordinator) Coach (Paul) Benway, (Assistant/Defensive Coordinator) Coach (John) Lang and the rest of the (Sachem North) coaching staff for the guidance and the endless hours they put in developing Sachem lacrosse players. Special thanks to Coach Mauro for all the help in the recruiting process.

Yea baby,,,Sachem always has a reputation of creating outstanding Athletes in Lacrosse a Football. Even back in the 80's, baseball. I graduated from Sachem back in the mid 80's, showing my age, and Football was our thing with the Flaming Arrows. Stars such as Jumbo Elliot, who went to Michigan I do believe, and then the NFL.. In 1983/84 they were state champs....   Coach Fred fusaro was the man back then

I just love to see our local athletes want to play for SB and wanting to stay closer to home. This is the reason why year after year our fan base is growing larger. Sachem is a HUGE school and that alone can ad thousands of additional fans to lavalle stadium.  Love it. Love it !!!!!!!

This article says Blake Carrera, a sophomore LSM from Riverhead is committed to Stony Brook. (I also think I've heard that Dan Czelatka is coming to play for Nagle, but don't quote me on it.)

They just had Zach Barrett from Lynbrook in for a visit. 

Starting LSM since his freshman year on a 14-1 squad.   I believe he also visited Ohio State and Bingo so far.  Big strong kid.  He's actually my neighbors nephew so no real scoop here.

A lefty... very fast footwork... looks like a feed first, shoot second, dodge third type.  He does a lot of different things and could be a good utility man.  He uses both hands which you see less and less these days.  And this is his freshman video.  He showed some defense, some riding, open field speed, toughness, ground balls, outside shot, i like it.  He can play behind or up top. 

John Glenn has pulled off some really nice wins this year: http://www.laxpower.com/update14/binboy/XJGLNY.PHP

He's got time to grow (he's already 6'1''!) and one thing id like to see is when he plays defense- to come out a little more under control.  He likes to press the hands, which, for a short stick, is even more rare these days.  I wonder where we are thinking of using him, it seems he could be a two way mid, an X attackman, a wing middie on offense, etc.  Good find.
