AM ET
Each week during the 2012 season, ESPNHS Lacrosse will select a player from each of four regions as Player of the Week.

To submit a player for consideration fill out our submission form here. Please be sure to provide the player’s entire week worth of performances. Athletes can earn Player of the Week honors just once during the 2012 regular season.

The following players are for the week of April 8 through 14.

East
Devin Dwyer, Sr., Garden City (N.Y.), attack
In one of the most anticipated matchups of the year, the Harvard-bound attackman put on a offensive display in Pennsylvania. Dwyer tallied nine points on six assists and three goals in a 12-11 victory over the previous POWERADE FAB 50 No. 1 team Conestoga (Berwyn, Pa.). After the win, Garden City made a big leap in the rankings and Dwyer has made a name for himself outside of Long Island.

Southeast
Joey McMahan, Sr., Bishop Moore (Orlando, Fla.), attack
McMahan was unstoppable in a 15-11 victory over Lake Brantley (Altamonte Springs, Fla.) last week. McMahan was involved in 10 of the Hornets goals on five goals and five assists. Winners of their last five, the Hornets and McMahan are poised to make a deep run in the state tournament.

West
Sam Klingsporn, Jr., Aloha (Beaverton, Ore.), midfield
In a battle of neighboring states it was Oregon’s Aloha who came out victorious over Gig Harbor (Wash.) 15-8. Junior midfielder Sam Klingsporn was the best player on the field in a dominating performance. Klingsporn scored seven goals, had one assist and collected a remarkable 17 ground balls in one the best performances on the West Coast this year.

Midwest
Connor Flynn, Sr., Rockford (Rockford, Mich.), goalie
Last week’s 5-4 victory over East Grand Rapids (Grand Rapids, Mich.) was a monumental victory for the Rockford program. In just their third victory ever against the Pioneers, the Rams were lead by Flynn who stopped 10 shots, many in dramatic fashion to help the Rams secure the one goal victory.

Record Setters

Our 2012 Season Previews have not started yet, but it is not too early to take a look at some coaches who could be reaching milestones this season.

Mike Messere should win his 750th career game this season. The West Genesee (Camillus, N.Y.) coach currently has 740 career wins and has been coaching since 1969.

Boys’ Latin (Baltimore, Md.) coach Bob Shriver looks to win his 450 career game. He is 438-128 in 32 years.

Brad Touma from Charlotte Country Day (Charlotte, N.C.) will try to win his 400th game this season. His current record is 385-109.

St. Thomas Aquinas (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) coach Terry Crowley needs 14 wins to reach 300.

Jay Watts, Westminster (Atlanta, Ga.) girls' coach, is 16 wins away from his 250 career victory.

Ben Mrva, Hutchison (Memphis, Tenn.) girls' coach needs 12 wins to get his 100th career victory.

Steve Finnell from Garden City (Garden City, N.Y.) is 13 wins shy of 100.

Fort Mill (Fort Mill, S.C.) boys coach Jim Van Blarcom looks for his 50th career victory. His current record is 42-14.

ESPNHS will update as we discover more coaching milestones for the upcoming season. To submit coaching information, please have a head coach or assistant coach fill out our 2012 Season Preview form.

News And Notes

The 2012 high school season is just three weeks away from starting, but Florida got interesting this week with the return of the all-time leader in wins returning to the sideline.

ESPN 760 reported that Jeff Goldberg, who won 380 games and 14 state championships with St. Andrew’s (Boca Raton, Fla.) joined the coaching staff at St. Thomas Aquinas (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.). Aquinas head coach Terry Crowley is No. 2 on Florida’s win list with 286.

Last week ESPNHS highlighted the Champion Challenge in which former ESPNHS No. 2 goalie Bridget Bianco was expected to see her first college action.

Bianco recorded nine saves in her college debut, an 18-1 loss to the US Women's National Team. The event was held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Florida, Jan. 27-29, 2012

What You Might Have Missed

Top Story: Having been the first team selected for the 2012 Under Armour Underclass All-Star Lacrosse Tournament, the West team has gained a number of views and is the most viewed story on ESPNHS for the second straight week.

The roster features 15 players from California, five from Colorado, two from Nevada and one each from Arizona and Washington.

The remainder of tryouts will be held starting in June, beginning June 2 with the South. For a complete listing of 2012 tryouts you can visit the Under Armour site here.

Top Boys’ Commitment: One advantage of our 2012 Season Preview form is picking up commitments that we were not aware of before. That is what happened when we received our information for Memphis University School (Memphis, Tenn.) junior Peyton Klawinski, who was selected as the No. 50 junior. The midfielder has chosen North Carolina.

Top Girls’ Commitment: Another Top 50 Junior has chosen her college destination. The No. 14 player in the ESPNHS Top 50 Junior list, Linda Attanasio from Garden City (Garden City, N.Y.), has verbally committed to play women's lacrosse for Dartmouth.

Looking Ahead

As ESPNHS gets ready to launch its 2012 Season Previews on Feb. 7 we spend this week discussing what it takes to get ranked in the POWERADE FAB 50 (Feb. 1) and what to expect during our previews (Feb. 3).

A complete look at what lies ahead can be found on our 2012 Season Preview Central home page.
