Top 10 Connecticut high school boys lacrosse players
Phil Huffard (Darien), G, Jr.: Huffard, one of the premier goalies in Connecticut, is a big reason why defense is a strength for the Blue Wave. Yale is the lucky college to get his services next season.
Peter Lindley (Darien), A, Jr.: An outstanding scorer, he played only nine games after returning from an injury last season but still ended up with 32 goals. He has committed to play at UMass.
Peter Gesualdi (Darien), M, Sr.: This short-stick defensive middie initiates the transition game with a nose for the ball on the defensive side. He has committed to Hobart.
Jack Harrington (Greenwich), D, Jr.: One of the strongest, tenacious defenders in the state who routinely limits opponents’ shots on goal. He has made an early commitment to play at Duke.
Kevin Brown (Fairfield Prep), A, Sr.: Coming off winning the Division I boys hockey championship with the Jesuits, he had 66 goals and 28 assists last season and should match those numbers this year. He was selected a first-team U.S. Lacrosse All-American last season. He will play at Pennsylvania.
Andrew Hatton (Fairfield Prep), D, Sr.: One of the top defensemen for the Jesuits’ state championships team, his tenacity makes him one of the top lacrosse defenders in the state as well. The U.S. Lacrosse All-American will play lacrosse at Michigan.
Austin Sims (Fairfield Prep), A-M, Jr.: His strength is at midfield, but his quickness and hard shot will have him contribute on the attack as well. Committed to play at Princeton.
Will Bonaparte (Ridgefield), M, Jr.: The versatile midfielder helps on the attack, on defense and is one of the top face-off specialists in the state. Recruited early and often, he made an early commitment in 2012 to take his talents to Maryland.
Erick Persky (New Canaan) D, Sr.: The U.S. Lacrosse All-American is one of the toughest 1-on-1 defenders in the state, using quick footwork and tight coverage to disrupt opponents. He has committed to play at Penn.
