Recruit Profile
Two-way Mid with both speed and hustle; tenacious on defense, but also always looking to pass or score - team first/personal stats second!

My family thrives in playing competitive sports starting with my Dad who played at Drexel University and my sister currently is West Point on the Womens basketball team. My cousins are Josh & Jared Reinson who both played D1 lax at Maryland/Hopkins and just this year, another cousin Mikey Rowinski just committed to Susquehanna U. as well.

I have had a stick in my hand at an early age and started travel lacrosse in 6th grade playing both box and travel ball in NJ. I also have had to some of the best coaching and training available to me starting with Coach Carc from United/BBL, Coach Roy from Leading Edge and currently with Coach Cassalia from True/FL Lacrosse Club now that I live in FL.

I am at highly coachable, determined student-athlete with passion for the game looking to continue to play at the collegiate level for a competitive program. I was second highest scorer and points leader last HS season as a transfer sophomore. I am a multi-sport athlete football/basketball/golf, but am laser-focused in playing lacrosse in college.

I have had the Oppurtunity to Coach John for the Past year. As someone who has been in the Club Lacrosse World for the past 15 years and have helped thousands of kids to go on to play college lacrosse I couldn't of asked for a better young man than John when you talk about his integrity and character as a individual. He has been a pleasure to coach. As for on the Field John is a very steady midfielder who has the ability to play at a very High Level. He is Smart, Slippery, and Stronger then he looks. With His IQ John has the ability to play both Attack and Midfield in college based on his ability to make his teammates better. He can operate behind the cage and from up top. He is a match up problem for a Short Stick. His footwork with his dodging and 3 step split to get to his strong hand is also something that should be taken note of when you are evaluating him. He has really Good footwork. Like I said John has the ability to play at a very High Level and I am excited to see where he ends up.

John was new to our Varsity program in '22. John played the attack position for most of the '22 season and was 2nd in scoring on his Varsity team as a Sophomore. He maintains a positive attitude and remains coachable as he learns our culture and system. Should you have additional questions about John, please do not hesitate to contact me.

John, is a high IQ midfielder who can do anything on the field. He is a gritty two way player who is tough on defense, on ground balls and in transition. Offensively he has a great first step, the ability to re dodge and set up the slide. He is effective shooting on the run or in step downs.
