Think Shaw is a real sleeper in this class...
Stay golden, Ponyboy.
Indeed! That championship drive transfers to whatever sport you're playing!

Maybe could help with our lacrosse team a bit too with some playmaking. What a great athlete.
The last time we had an elite lacrosse player that played football was Matt Keller from Moeller. He didn't play lacrosse at osu because of the injury risk.
High and tight boo boo
Sam Hubbard was a pretty good lacrosse player too. Had an ND offer for lacrosse, IIRC.
Forgive gumtape. It is hard to remember his Lax skills when they were so far ourshined by his dodgeball prowess
That's the stuff I like to see. Competitor and winner!
Congrats to him. Seems like a fierce competitor. We shall see about the sleeper. It concerns that he didn't have an offer from Maryland.
He was committed to Wisconsin. That means much more than what Maryland did to didn’t do IMO.
Fair enough, though it's not exactly like Whisky has been setting the recruiting trail ablaze of late. I watched Bryson's senior highlights on 247. He has a long, fluid stride and my guess is that he'll have the speed to play safety on this level after a couple of years in the weight program. But his athleticism, physicality, tackling, and overall playmaking ability on defense leave something to be desired. So we'll have to wait and see how he develops. I wouldn't expect this kid to make a splash straight out of high school.
my breeding being what it was... [a nod to Mom & Dad's 'entirely natural' behavior]...
my ...every thing... "leaves something to be desired"...
by... every one.... Especially me.
BUT... in what has been called and sung as "Amazing Grace"... is ...Hope....
So... IF there is hope even for me, surely there is "much, much more" for "this kid" who has, evidently according to reports, already left much that we say we "desire"... on several fields... several times.
And isn't it wonderful that no person "has to wait and see" the future... be cause none of us can 'see' the future? But who cannot see 'now'?
[just 'saw' a 'vision' of a little kid... 'splashing' in the kiddie pool ...looks like he's having fun....]

Q: are 'my expectations'... worth expectorations?
That many are discounting or belittling a young man who just won a National Championship in another sport and is being recruited as well as signed by D1 schools in two sports for lack of athleticism makes me wonder what the heel they were recruited in THE DECATHLON!
Welcome aboard Mr. Shaw, thank you for choosing our program!

Why not both?? Buckeye lax needs some middie help
I don't follow college lacrosse, let alone high school lacrosse, but I have been following the Bryson Shaw stories the past few days. Well, it sounds to me like The Bullis School's most difficult hurdle was winning its own local/regional conference tournament in lacrosse-rich Maryland, whereas this GEICO national tournament was mostly a walk in the park.
Lacrosse fans: am I reading that correctly?
I watched a little bit of the game last night and I thought I heard the announcer say that Bullis's opponent had 20 players on their roster with D1 scholarship offers.
Salisbury is mostly PG kids that either want to earn better offers from higher level D1 programs, or want to go Ivy. For example the twins from British Columbia are 19, almost 20 and going to Yale next year as freshmen.
This is a "national" tournament in name only... I can assure you that no Minnesota schools participate in any of this because we just started our own Sectional tournaments for the state competition. This is probably true of lots of areas that aren't the mid-atlantic.
Cause I couldn't go for three
This year this was only a 4 team tournament. In the past 2 years it was 8 teams. They really only invite teams that they think can compete and I can assure you that no Minnesota team could come within 15 of the 4 that were in this field. They are all private schools the heavily recruit. That being said, this is not a "National Championship" because the two best teams in the country did not participate this year. Calvert Hall from the MIAA and Culver Military from IN are the top two teams in the country and have probably 45 D1 commits combined with many more underclassmen on the way.
Bullis winning was really impressive though. Hill Academy, who they beat in the semifinals, is a lacrosse factory coached by one of the top 5-10 players in the history of the game. They also play year around indoor and outdoor with very little regulations. Then to beat a Salisbury School team that is majority PG kids who pay 40k+ a year to get ready for Ivy League educations is incredible. I have been to Salisbury and it makes most colleges look dumpy. They have 3 turf fields, indoor tennis courts, massive basketball facility, a college level weight room, pool, oh and a state of the art hockey rink. It is big time. Congrats Bryson and Bullis on an impressive 2 game run. They did have one massive advantage though, as I heard Booker and Schriver mention that Salisbury kids took 2 exams prior to the game...
I'm aware of the talent level here... I grew up and played in Maryland. I officiate through the college level and have seen just about every level except full D1 (there's just no D1s out here to ref...) I'm just adding context that this is a nice tournament and all, but I take the "national champion" moniker with a GIANT grain of salt.
What does 'PG Kids' mean?
Congratulations to Bryson Shaw and the Bullis Bulldogs.
Hindsight is, and in, 2020
