Recruit Profile
Ten year hardworking athletic lefty defender plays a mature game with advanced stick skills, footwork, off-ball play, strong transition game. Honor roll, coachable,respectful, aggressive, and relentless.Varsity Letters in multiple sports.

I am an ambidextrous (natural lefty) close defender, with advanced stick skills and am aggressive but controlled.

I create turnovers, have quick feet and a high defensive IQ. I'm a workout warrior and physically strong player. Captain at every level.

Percy is a highly skilled defenseman that excels in keeping pressure on his man and his stickhandling both on defense and with the ball. He’s always coachable with a great attitude and has developed a high lacrosse IQ. His footwork and positioning are constantly improving. He consistently gets into passing lanes to create turnovers and transition offense.

I coached Percy as a middle schooler and he is a humble, coachable and joyful athlete. He is able to make plays on and off the ball in the defensive end and possesses the skills to get the ball up off the ground and down the field in transition.

Percy is a very hard worker that wants nothing more than to be the best. He grinds harder than most kids his age and is willing to put in extra effort on a regular basis. He has a great lacrosse IQ and makes the smart plays.

Percy is a strong and hardworking athlete. He's an aggressive defender that makes a lot of plays by pressuring the ball carriers and handles the ball well in the clearing game. He is coachable and has the work ethic to become an elite defender.

Nick Yanora

Percy is one of the hardest working players that I have coached. He puts in the extra work to get better and is very coachable. No matter if it is summer ball or the regular season, Percy always comes ready to play and leaves it all out on the field.
