COMMERCE CITY, Colo. -- The Warrior 40 brings together 40 of the best high school lacrosse players in the country for two days of competition and camaraderie, but what many people see is the competition that happens on the field.

Here are some news and notes from behind the scenes.

What’s In a Name

If ESPNHS were to do an All-Name team there is no doubt St. Mark’s (Dallas) defender Bear Goldstein would make the list.

But he might have to make the list twice since Bear is not Goldstein’s birth name, but a nickname.

The rising senior’s given name is Sierra Moon. According to Goldstein’s father Robert, it took a few days for them to give their newborn an official name so they took to calling him their little bear and the nickname stuck.

“Even his report cards come home with Bear on them,” Robert said. “Nobody calls him Sierra.”

Sierra is named after the mountain range and keeps with the family theme. Bear’s older sister is Everest Star.

Giving Back

As part of the athletes' Day 1 activities they worked with Special Olympic athletes to show them how to play lacrosse.

Athletes from both camps were jovial as players showed the Olympians how to scoop, throw and shoot.

“It was awesome. I’ve worked with Notre Dame School, which is a school for special needs in Dallas and I love coming out and teaching the kids how to do this stuff,” Dallas Jesuit goalie Daniel Morris said. “When I see them smile it puts a smile on my face.”

Old-timers

A first for the Warrior 40 was the selection of five players that participated in the event last year.

Wilkins Dismuke from Rock Canyon (Lone Tree, Colo.), Nick Fields from Bullis (Potomac, Md.), Danny Fowler from Chaminade (Mineola, N.Y.), Justin Guterding from Garden City (N.Y.) and Mac Pons from Boys’ Latin (Baltimore) are the first two-time selections in Warrior 40 history.

“I feel a little more like I belong this year,” Fowler said. “Last year I was the young kid coming up and I was still getting recruited. This year I can loosen up a little bit and just have fun.”

Being in the group of returnees, the players have been thrust into the role of advisor to the first-year athletes.

“A lot of the guys are asking me questions like ‘what’s next,’” Guterding said. “I just tell them to follow the schedule.”

Rep Your Country

This year marks the first year the Warrior 40 became a multi-national event with the selection of two Canadian players to the roster: Jeremy Bosher from Norkam Senior (Kamloops, British Columbia) and Austin Shanks from Ontario.

Shanks is already committed to Michigan.

Both players realize the opportunity to represent their country and be counted among some of the best high school lacrosse players in North America.

“From where Canada was and where it is now we’re a lot more noticed now,” Shanks said. “Before we didn’t get many looks. Now coaches and scouts weigh it even with the U.S. now. It’s cool how far Canada’s come.”

“We’re not only representing ourselves, but part of Canada,” Bosher added. “It’s a huge honor. I know there’s a ton of guys back home that could be here.”

Shanks is made sure his country was represented during the game by using tape with the Canadian Maple Leaf on his stick.

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. -- The streak is over.

Team Dojo (Blue) defeated Team Burn (Orange) 16-14 to win its first Warrior 40 final competition at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colo., Wednesday.

Wilkins Dismuke from Rock Canyon (Littleton, Colo.) was named the overall MVP for the second-straight year after scoring five goals, including four goals in the fourth quarter for Dojo.

“I was more nervous coming into this year then I was last year,” Dismuke said. “I felt like there was a little more pressure this year so it means a lot to win overall MVP. I didn’t want to come out and not play well this year after earning MVP last year.”

The Johns Hopkins commit scored his second and third goals to put DoJo up 13-11 in the fourth quarter then followed it up with two of the game’s final three goals to seal the victory.

Back and Forth

Three goals was the biggest lead for either team until the final few minutes.

Burn, which had won the previous two Warrior 40 final competitions, jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first quarter, but Dojo roared back with two goals and an assist by Jordan Evans from Jamesville-DeWitt (DeWitt, N.Y.) and the teams ended the first tied at 4-4. The first and second quarters ended with the teams tied.

Coronado (Las Vegas) rising senior Kieran Eissler scored with 2:41 remaining to push DoJo’s lead to 15-12. Dismuke’s fifth goal with 1:47 remaining pushed the lead to 16-12, but goals by Burn's Dylan Maltz and Tim Rotanz capped the final two goals of the contest.

Most Valuable

Rotanz from Shoreham-Wading River (Shoreham, N.Y.) finished the game with four goals and one assist for Burn and was named Offensive MVP.

“I didn’t expect it at all. I finished eating my sandwich during the (team) picture so I was obviously unprepared,” Rotanz said.

Daniel Morris from Dallas Jesuit (Dallas) earned the Defensive MVP award after recording nine saves in the first half for Burn.

“It means a lot to me. It really shows the growth of lacrosse across the U.S. and in Texas,” Morris said of two players from non-traditional hotbeds earning MVP honors. “It nice to show that we have some skills.”

Paul RabilVaughn WinchellPaul Rabil discusses what his life was like as a student at DeMatha Catholic (Md.) from 2003-2005 in the second part of a six-part series.
Paul Rabil plays Major League Lacrosse with the Boston Cannons, but eight years ago he was a high school senior preparing for graduation.

During his three years at DeMatha (Hyattsville, Md.), Rabil led the lacrosse team to three Washington Catholic Athletic Conference Championships and totaled 288 career points.

The two-time lacrosse All-American spoke with ESPNHS about his days at DeMatha in the second of a six-part series leading up to the 2012 Warrior 40. Read the first installment here.

The Warrior 40, which takes place Aug. 13-15 at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colo., is a three-day competition that features the nation's top underclass high school lacrosse players.

Q&A with Paul Rabil from W40 athletes

July, 5, 2012

AM ET
Paul RabilVaughn WinchellPaul Rabil answers some questions from the Warrior 40 athletes in the first of a six part series.
Paul Rabil of Major League Lacrosse's Boston Cannons is asked a lot of questions on a daily basis. Maybe the most asked is “can I have your autograph,” which the MLL MVP is more than happy to provide.

But as the first in a six part series featuring Rabil, the two-time NCAA champion answers questions that participants in the 2012 Warrior 40 want to know about the star.

Over the next six weeks ESPNHS will showcase Rabil as a lead in to the Warrior 40, which takes place Aug. 13-15 at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colo.

ESPNHS: In a recent article, you stated that you're never satisfied. How do you keep all things in perspective if you're never satisfied?
Paul Rabil: “When I say I’m never satisfied it means I want to continue to win. You hate losing and losing sets a fire in you to go out, play better and win. For me when I win the next thing is to win again. When you win a championship after you’re done celebrating it feels so good you want to do it again.

ESPNHS: How did the excitement and pressure of playing in the final four or the national championship affect you and how did you stay focused while you were there?
PR: “That’s a difficult questions because I think it’s something that comes sort of natural or I attribute it to coach Dave Pietramala [Rabil’s coach at Johns Hopkins] and our practice and preparation before that game. You get so excited, but once you walk on the field you tone everything out. When you’re in the game it felt no different than playing on Homewood Field or right down the street on the park.”

ESPNHS: What advice or words of wisdom would you give to future D-I lacrosse players before they leave for college?
PR: “Focus on yourself and set goals for what you want to do at the school you’re going to. Watch film on guys that you want to play like or aspire to be. That’s what I did when I was in high school -- I watched a lot of the college All-Americans and pro players and tried to adapt to their game.”

ESPNHS: What type of work did you put in as a kid that got you to where you are today?
PR: “Tons of wall ball, tons of shooting. I get on the wall five hundred times a day and I shoot 100 to 200 shots a day.”

ESPNHS: What is the biggest transition from high school to college?
PR: “The speed of the game and the way it’s played. In high school you can get away with sheer athleticism and pace and endurance. In the college game when you’re tired you don’t have room to be tired. Everyone that’s on the field and in practice is always going 110 percent.”

ESPNHS: Who is the toughest defenseman you have ever gone against and why?
PR: “There’s been several for different reasons, but the best all-around defenseman I’ve gone against is Brodie Merrill. He can defend well, but he’s also such a threat when the balls on the ground and on the clear. He gets up the field as a long pole, right after a shot on the clear that makes me go back and defend. He’s forcing the offensive players do things that we’re not used to in different situations. That’s what makes him great.”
