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.

AM ET
Matthew Killian, DelbartonClaudia Sorenson/ESPNHSDelbarton (Morristown, N.J.) junior Matthew Killian works away from a defender at the 2012 Prep School Lacrosse Showcase.
GREENWICH, Conn. – More than 260 athletes who have yet to give commitments to colleges gathered at Brunswick School (Greenwich, Conn.) at the Prep School Lacrosse Showcase on Sunday to display their talents in front of college coaches.

ESPNHS spoke with team coaches throughout the day to get their take on the players that impressed them in the classes of 2013, 2014 and 2015.

Class of 2013

Michael Allen, 2013, Berkshire School (Sheffield, Mass.), midfield
The 6-foot-4, 180-pound Allen has good size and speed and uses it to his advantage on both the offensive and defensive ends of the field.

Charlie Better, 2013, Brunswick School, defense
Better proved to be great on ground balls in addition to causing a lot of turnovers. The 6-foot, 175-pound defender also pushes the transition well.

Brandon Bowman, 2013, Roxbury Latin School (Boston, Mass.), LSM
Bowman is a great long stick midfielder who excels on takeaways. The 5-foot-11, 180-pound rising senior uses his body well to maneuver for ground balls.

Jackson Cabot, 2013, Noble & Greenough (Dedham, Mass.), defense
Cabot showed lots of range at the showcase. The 6-foot-4, 185-pounder is an aggressive defender with a long reach who is able to recover quickly if his opponent is able to shake him.

Matt Cunningham, 2013, Deerfield (Mass.), attack
An excellent finisher, Cunningham displayed a high lacrosse IQ with his decision-making.

Jamie DeNicola, 2013, Hamden Hall Country Day (Hamden, Conn.), attack
The 5-foot-9, 150-pound attacker is shifty on offense, easily dodging defenders to get open for a shot. The 2013 graduate sees the field well and is able to make the pass to an open teammate.

Shane Hurley, 2013, Salisbury School (Salisbury, Conn.), LSM
Hurley has good size at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds. The defender displayed his agility and is a solid cover defender who is able to transition quickly to be an offensive threat as well.

Max Krieg, 2013, St. Paul’s School (Concord, N.H.), midfield
Krieg had the most impressive day on Sunday. The 5-foot-11, 180-pound midfielder is fast and smooth with the ball in his stick. The 2013 graduate was not rattled when in traffic and displayed a good shot and the ability to create space. One coach said Krieg is a "stud" and should be a big-time Division I recruit.

Other Players Who Impressed

Sean Donnelly, 2013 PG, Salisbury School, attack
Chris Dowd, 2013, Hotchkiss School (Lakeville, Conn.), midfield
Alex Fernandez, 2013, Trinity Pawling (Pawling, N.Y.), midfield
Walt Gahagan, 2013, Deerfield, LSM
Jack Margiotta, 2013, Trinity Pawling, defense
Pearce McEneaney, 2013, Avon Old Farms (Avon, Conn.), midfield

Michael Shanahan, 2013, Choate Rosemary Hall (Wallingford, Conn.), defense
Mark Snellman, 2013, Salisbury School, attack
Chas South, 2013, Taft School (Watertown, Conn.), defense

Class of 2014

Nolan Callahan, 2014, Avon Old Farms, goalie
Callahan was described as a legitimate Division I goalie who is athletic and sees the field well. The 2014 graduate has good size at 6-foot-3, 220 pounds.

Tommy Connelly, 2014, Brooks School (North Andover, Mass.), goalie
Connelly made several good positional saves and was an excellent communicator. The 6-foot-3, 255-pound goalie talks through positioning with his defense well.

Scott Hooper, 2014, Hotchkiss School, defense
Hooper has great speed, is agile and displayed good stick skills. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Hooper is a solid cover defender.

Jake Miller, 2014, Taft School, LSM
The 6-foot-2, 175-pound Miller is athletic and gets up and down the field well. Listed as a long stick midfielder, Miller could easily play either close defense or long stick.

Patrick Roarty, 2014, Ward Melville (East Setauket, N.Y.), attack
Roarty is a hard-nosed player who runs well with ball in his stick. The 5-foot-9, 170-pound attacker impressed coaches with his composure under pressure by larger defenders and his quickness to create separation.

Aaron Son, 2014, The Rivers School (Weston, Mass.), defense/LSM
Son was great on ground balls and running on the break. The 5-foot-8, 150-pounder was getting the ball out of midfielder’s sticks consistently throughout the day.

Other Players Who Impressed

Michael DeLuca, 2014, St. Anthony’s, LSM
Dean DiSimone, 2014, St. Augustine Prep (Richland, N.J.), attack

Will Sjodin, 2014, Avon Old Farms, defense
Cameron Stafford, 2014, Brunswick School, attack

Class of 2015

Charlie Cobb, 2015, Brunswick School, midfield
Cobb was good in transition, using his speed to create separation.

John Tierney, 2015, Wilbraham Monson Academy (Wilbraham, Mass.), midfield
Strong and athletic, the 5-foot-10, 180-pound Tierney was big on ground balls throughout the day. The middie is able to get out of a dodge, get his hands free and quickly get off a shot in traffic.

Prep school showcase features uncommitted players

AM ET
The Prep School Lacrosse Showcase enters its second year and features 260 of the top uncommitted prep lacrosse players from the Northeast area on June 3 at Brunswick School (Greenwich, Conn.).

It is the only lacrosse showcase that features only uncommitted players and all proceeds from the event go to local youth lacrosse organizations.

“This is something that is currently not available for most of these players,” organizer Tim McDonnell said. “We have a small group of players who will absolutely be seen by college coaches.”

Last year’s event saw several players gain interest and eventually commit to Division I programs, including ESPN Top 50 junior Austin Shanks (Michigan) along with Austin Rocco (Yale) and A.J. Rocco (Yale).

Giving Back

In addition to giving underclassmen a chance to showcase their talents in front of college coaches, participating players will donate new or used lacrosse equipment to CityLax which is dedicated to developing lacrosse programs in New York City public schools and underserved communities in New York City high schools and middle schools.

“The New York City schools and communities we serve are part of the recent expansion of lacrosse, especially in urban areas,” said CityLax CEO and president Mat Levine. “Those fortunate to play in private and boarding schools will be providing needed equipment to help the game grow in the less traditional areas of New York City’s five boroughs.”

Power Players

Among the programs being represented at the showcase are New England prep school powers Deerfield (Mass.), Salisbury School (Salisbury, Conn.) and Brunswich School (Greenwich, Conn.). Additionally, players from POWERADE FAB 50 programs St. Anthony’s (South Huntington, N.Y.) and Georgetown Prep (North Bethesda, Md.) will be in attendance.

Players will be split up into teams and play in 50 minute games beginning at 10 a.m.
