Ben Bonafede (2021, Midfield, Chaminade)- Bucknell – A midfielder who gets up and down the field with the best of ’em, Bonafede – who made Chaminade’s stacked varsity team as a sophomore – projects as a standout two-way midfielder at the next level. -NLF National Championship AA Preview
AJ Volkmann (2021, Defense, Mount Sinai)- LIU Post – Volkmann is a tenacious, Suffolk County defenseman who plays the game angry. Get near his crease and he will take it very, very personally. Volkmann will be a key cog in Mt. Sinai’s 2020 defensive unit. Good pick-up for the future Sharks defensive unit.
Connor McCormick (2021, Defense, Bay Shore)- Quinnipiac, Connor is a tall, wiry, athletic Suffolk County defender. McCormick’s best defensive attributes might be his off -ball play. Tall, long, and a huge weapon for getting in passing lanes. Head always on a swivel, Connor likes to time up slides, force double teams, get the ball on the ground, and push transition. QU got another good one from the island.
Conor Julich (2021, Midfield, Islip)- Wagner, Coach McCutcheon at Wagner is building a program up and he is turning to Long Island to do so. Conor Julich will be a big piece to that puzzle. Julich is a downhill dude who isn’t afraid to drop his should, run you over, and stick one in the back of the cage. This tough son of a gunslinger has the grit to take Wagner from bottom, to middle, to hopefully top of NCAA D1.
Derek Takacs (2021, Attack, Mount Sinai)- Stony Brook Great teammate. Strong, Fast lefty with a high IQ for the game. Multi-sport high academic student/athlete. -Derek’s ConnectLax Profile
Amanda Dowler (2021, Attack, Mount Sinai)- LIU Post: A hardworking player who has sacrificed in the off season to better her game, we are expecting a break out year from her in 2020.
