Recruiting at Fusion
Fusion’s staff is one of the most well connected anywhere, based on having either been teammates at the D1 level, coached under at the D1 level, or have been professional teammates with so many current head and assistant coaches in college lacrosse. Fusion is dedicated to seeing our athletes reach their goals and our job is not done until we’ve gotten our kids the looks and connections they have earned.

Some are D1 Heavy i.e.: Quakerfest, Terrapin Classic, 3D Delaware, Adrenaline Delaware while others serve Division 3 coaching staffs i.e.; Gettysburg Invitational, and Victory Summer Slam.
- Social Media and Video: We understand that a part of getting noticed today requires some promotion and Fusion is well equipped with the tools to market our deserving players.

WATCH Fusion Uncommitted Players of the WEEK!
Ryan Raftery 2018 Midfielder, Cherokee HS NJ…. Ryan is one of the more complete players in our program. His well rounded game allows him to benefit any team and any style of play. Ryan’s best assets are his creativity and versatility. Ryan is very proficient with both hands, can shoot from the outside, dodge hard to the middle, and he is a very good feeder. He also gives a very good look as an attackman in the invert set. Ryan has had a lot of success in the box game and runs the 2-man very well.
Andrew Albertson 2018 F/O midfielder, Parkland HS….. Andrew is a natural athlete at the F/O X that when he isn’t winning clean he can rely on just out-athleting his opponent and win the loose ball. Andrew’s best asset unquestionably is his ability to be an offensive force from the midfield despite being a teams top face-off man. Andrew has a beautiful split dodge and a deadly shot on the run making him a jump off the page prospect with this rare combination skill set.
Jack Daly 2018 Attackman, Haverford High School…. Jack is a big body at 6’2 and he has an extremely smooth stick that has been enhanced by his box lacrosse commitment. He has a deadly accurate and hard midrange shot, and is very crafty with soft hands inside. Johns best asset is his ability to use his size to post up his defenseman while surveying the field. His equal ability to feed or shoot around a screen puts a lot of pressure on opposing defenses and he is a handful to game-plan for.
Stephen Blue 2020 Attack, Souderton HS…. Stephen possesses above average size and strength. His best assets are his decision making and versatility. He manages the game like a young Ryan Boyle, a true quarterback of the offense that can dodge. He likes to make the extra pass but is always willing to put the team on his shoulders and score a game winner when needed.
TJ Sims 2019 Attack/Mid, Penncrest…. TJ has good size 6’0 and speed, especially for an attackman. His best assets are his lightning quick first step, his determination and ability to fight to the front of the net, and his ability to catch and finish consistently from inside. TJ can score a variety of different ways from any spot on the field making him a great asset on a college roster.
Rowan Cabahug-Almonte 2020 F/O Specialist, Malvern Prep…. Rowan is lightning quick at the X and finished 3rd in Greg Guerenlien’s National Face-off Showcase for 2020s beating many D-1 commits along the way. Rowan’s best assets are his determination work ethic and scrappiness, combined with a very sound and creative stick developed from his box lacrosse training. Rowan is always on an upward trend and is a tremendous prospect.
Nick Benoit 2018 Defenseman, West Chester Rustin….. Nick is a highly competitive athlete with a constant motor. Nicks best asset is he is always hunting the ball and looking to make a play along with his very strong speed and athleticism. Nick likes to make big plays and he makes them often especially with a big caused turnover or a goal in transition. Nick’s skills are still improving and combined with his athleticism, he is very much trending upward for recruiters.
Kevin Connor O’Niel 2018 Defenseman, Germantown Academy….. Connor was a late bloomer athletically and he has grown physically and is now one of the bigger and stronger defenseman around. Connors best assets are that he plays nasty and gritty and has a great stick. Connor does not go unnoticed out on the field and he is always making an impact on the game whether shutting down his attackman, laying a big hit, getting a bog loose ball or picking off a pass.
