Look Who’s Playing

DeMatha (Hyattsville, Md.) could have one of the better-kept secrets in the nation waiting to get his shot in goal.

Sophomore goalie Nick Ramsey was a member of the Stags junior varsity team last season, but over the summer he participated in the Brine Shootout and put on a show for the college coaches in attendance.

“For a kid who just finished his freshman year and to go out there and play goalie, he had incredible poise and ability to position his defense,” Ramsey’s club coach Greg Speed said. “He didn’t care that he was a rising sophomore. He just took control.”

The 5-foot-10, 155-pound sophomore separates himself from other goalies in his class with his ability to read the opposing offense and put his teammates in the best possible position.

“He is a kid who could play at a high level,” Speed said. “I’ve already spoken to several college coaches about Nick.”

News & Notes

ESPNHS learned over the weekend that Kanatiio Adams from Salmon River (Fort Covington, N.Y.) passed away on Jan. 2.

Adams was ESPNHS's No. 14 long stick midfielder and had been accepted to play men’s lacrosse at Cornell.

Adams had transferred to Salisbury School (Salisbury, Conn.) for his senior year and was recently selected to play for the U19 Iroquois Nationals Lacrosse Team.

No details were given surrounding Adams passing.

What You Might Have Missed

Top Story: The Friday before Christmas, ESPNHS reported on the story of Tommy Mallon who broke his neck during his final high school lacrosse game and has used that event to help athletes recognize the signs of concussions and other head and neck injuries.

For the second-straight week the Mallon story has been the most popular story on the site.

The story and video can be seen here.

Top Girls’ Commit: New Trier (Winnetka, Ill.) junior attacker Kelsey Murray is the No. 19 player in the ESPNHS Top 50 Junior list and is the latest player to announce her verbal commitment to play women’s lacrosse for Stanford.

Top Boys’ Commit: Conor Whipple’s verbal commitment to Georgetown was announced over the weekend and picked up enough views to be our top boys story for the week.

The St. Andrew’s (Boca Raton, Fla.) junior has been a starter since his freshman year and has 134 career points.
