On Saturday, June 7, future national champions, All-Americans and scholar-athletes will descend upon Capistrano Valley High School for the annual Adrenaline North vs. South All-American Game. Game time is 5:30 p.m.
The All-American game will allow lacrosse enthusiasts to watch the top 50 seniors west of the Mississippi play a competitive North vs. South All-Star game. This game is the only chance for fans to truly see the pride of the entire West compete in one location.
The stacked Adrenaline All-American rosters are comprised of 55 NCAA D1, D2 & D3 players. Aside from the OC representation, this game has players hailing from as far north as Canada, east as Minnesota and Colorado, and Southeast as Texas.
It’s no surprise that the OC has six graduating seniors competing in this year’s event. Throughout this high school season and past off-season club success, the county has earned a reputation for having created talented squads and impact players that see plenty of success at the next level.
Playing in the All-American Game is an honor and this event is a can’t miss for any fan. Be there to root on our players or watch the game live on The Lacrosse Network (TLN).
2014 Orange County representatives (South Team)
Hunter Edington – St. Margaret’s (Manhattan College, #7): The SMES midfielder will be one of the smartest players on the field. He can score on command but look for him to create offense by turning defense into fast breaks and drawing slides at the top of the box. Edington is a pure athlete and will likely show up in the majority of goals scored by the South on Saturday.
Peyton Garrett – San Clemente (High Point, #9): One of the deadliest shooters OC has ever seen, Garrett will be easy to spot; he will have size over most other middies on the field. D-middies who have never seen him play will be unpleasantly surprised by just how quick he is. Unfortunately hedging a few steps to the inside to keep up with him will give him the space to rip top shelf from the perimeter or fire a pinpoint pass to a teammate.
Tucker Guyot – JSerra (Jacksonville, #10): If size is Guyot’s advantage then his agility is his secret weapon. Practicing against some of the quickest attackman every day at JSerra and marking some of the best in the West every game has upped Guyot’s game and should lead to success against whoever he is assigned to mark this weekend.
Mitch Kingsley – JSerra (Hofstra, #13): One of the county’s best leaders, Kingsley will surely take charge of whatever attack unit he plays with. He is one of those rare talents that is completely balanced offensively. Quickness only matched by physical grit makes him a dynamic attackman that will command attention on center stage on Saturday.
Hayden Ruiz – Santa Margarita (Boston University, #20): Boston U. struck gold by landing Ruiz back in 2012. The uber talented middie has since blossomed into an unguardable young phenom. Ruiz has produced highlight after highlight this year scoring from everywhere on the field imaginable. Shorties and LSM’s alike will likely fail to contain his creativity and be victim to more plays of the week caliber goals.
Austin Streeter – San Clemente (Bellarmine, #23): The crowd will be in for a treat when Streeter steps on the field. In the crowd of college destined talent Streeter will stand out as one of the most polished and college-ready players. Solid on offense and defense it will be clear that his talent will immediately translate at the next level. The opportunity that a free form game like this presents will serve as a perfect showcase for his athleticism and ability to break entire defenses by himself.
