One Percent Showcase 2024 Evaluations: Teams Green and Navy
The next wave of lacrosse stars is here.
The class of 2024 put everyone on notice at the One Percent Showcase: Tomorrow’s Stars in Davenport, Florida. More than 120 players from more than 20 states and Washington, D.C. made the trip, and there’s no doubt that the ’24s can ball.
Every player at a One Percent Showcase gets an evaluation from our team of evaluators. We started off with the Black and Carolina Blue teams, which you can read about if you CLICK HERE. Red and Royal Blue will round out the evaluations this week. This one is for the Green and Navy teams. Here’s a breakdown of the players on those two teams.

No. 1 Zach Chari, attack, McCallie (Tenn.) / Thunder LB3
All-Star. A talented attackman who possesses the athleticism and skill level to make an immediate impact at the high school level. Chari has really good footwork that allowed him to escape early double teams throughout the day. More importantly, he’s a physical dodger who uses his size – a massive 6-2, 205-pound frame as a high school freshman – to gain an advantage over his opponents. He was able to use his hitch and go to get to the middle of the field all day long, especially in the All Star game. Chari was dynamic and fun to watch throughout the event, and he allowed the game to come to him without he forcing shots and he played unselfishly. Chari and Kaleb Griffith got after it head-to-head in the All-Star Game, and this will be a matchup we hope to see again when both are playing for the most competitive college lacrosse programs in the country. He had a deadly lefty rocket that elicited some oohs and aahs in the All-Star Game.
No. 2 Luca Duva, attack, John Jay (N.Y.) / Prime Time
All-Star. Duva impressed throughout the day with his tenacity and competitive spirit. He challenged his defender in each of his games, and he has a great hockey-stop change of direction move. He plays with his head up when he has the ball in his stick, and more importantly, he was an asset to the Green team in the riding game, where he made a couple of impressive plays. Duva is skilled, smart, and unselfish.
No. 3 Austin Constable, attack, Dutch Fork (S.C.) / Charleston Elite
Constable worked well with his teammates as an off-ball threat. He was active inside and he competed for loose balls in the offensive end. He has the ability to square his shoulders up to the goal and challenge his defender, and his good stick protection and a great change of direction move help him get open.
No. 4 Leo Prosser, attack, Carmel (Ind.) / Cherries
Leo made great strides throughout the day, finishing his last game with two goals. He was very effective in the two-man game all day, smartly moving off the ball to get open, and he’s a deceptive dodger with some shake and change-of-direction skills who can find and exploit a sliver of open space. He’s a smart and well-coached attackman.
No. 5 Luke Bueti, attack, John Jay (N.Y.) / Express North
Bueti handles the ball well with both of his hands and he worked hard to attack the middle of the field. He has good footwork, and more importantly, he plays with his head up. He was a more aggressive dodger as the day wore on, and he made a ton of little plays like putting in great effort chasing out shots and riding.
No. 6 Greg Canning, attack, Worcester Academy (Mass.) / Fighting Clams
All-Star. Canning was arguably the most physical dodger at the event. He was a force to be reckoned with all day long and he was a threat to score whenever he had the ball in his stick. He’s a very good finisher and athlete. When Canning had his hands free, he put his shot on cage and he made the goalie move, and he made it a point to get to the island and use his dangerous inside roll. His hockey background is evident in his handle and ability to make plays inside, and he’s creative with his shots.
No. 7 Brendan Mullahy ‘25, midfield, Eclipse
Mullahy’s desire and ability to play individual and team defense leapt off the page. He was great from box-to-box and it’s clear that he has a high ceiling in the ’25 class. He was one of the few middies who worked to take higher percentage shots from his natural side. There’s plenty to suggest that he’s played some box lacrosse in the past because of his excellent hands and slickness in the paint. Mullahy cuts hard without the ball and he can carry a double team without causing a turnover. He has range on his shot and can stretch the defense.
No. 8 James Frankauski, midfield, IMG (Fla.) / True
A smooth and fluid athlete with a strong dominant hand and an excellent right-to-left split dodge. He worked well with his teammates and played unselfishly. Frankauski was a threat to score on his natural side whenever he had the ball in his stick. He made the game look so easy and his slickness and deception impressed.
No. 9 Sean Crogan, midfield, Lexington (Mass.) / Laxachusetts
All-Star. The younger brother of ’22 Georgetown commit Pat Crogan made positive plays every time he was on the field, much like his brother does. He was a joy to watch because he competed in every facet of the game. He fought to get to the middle of the field using his deceptive hitch-and-go; he has great range on his shot, and more importantly, he has great vision. Crogan is a plus athlete who runs hard from end-to-end and never shortchanged his team in the effort department. He was outstanding all day.
No. 10 Bryce Griffith, midfield, Sidwell Friends (D.C.) / VLC
Bryce put forth a tremendous amount of effort getting from the offensive to defensive end throughout the day and did well between the boxes. His athleticism and speed allowed him to be a one-man clear at times. He was aggressive in attacking his matchup on offense and he has velocity and accuracy on his shot.
No. 11 Jack Balzi, midfield, New Milford (Conn.) / Eclipse
Jack was a game changer on the wings for the Green team at the One Percent Showcase, always willing to stick his nose in the middle of everything to come away with a ground ball. He’s great at picking up ground balls and was dangerous in the open field. He used his athleticism to gain separation from his defender throughout the day, and his intelligence and skill were on display all day.
No. 12 Cannon Ridinger, faceoff, Charlotte Country Day (N.C.) / Team 24/7
Cannon had several good counters, but his best move was his clamp-plunger. He made several adjustments in his game against the Black team’s FOA in order to engage his wing players. He’s another skilled faceoff midfielder who’s been well-coached in his exits and moves.
No. 13 Madden Murphy, faceoff, Ward Melville (N.Y.) / Legacy
All-Star. Murphy’s offensive exits made him a threat to score, or put pressure on the defense, all day long. When he didn’t win a clamp, he knew how to position himself to prevent his opponent from gaining an advantage. However, he didn’t lose many faceoffs at the event. His defensive exits were clean and he has the skills to get himself out of trouble and away from the pressure of the defensive wing players. He fought for loose balls around the stripe, and I liked how quickly he was able to get off the field for an offensive or defensive middie. He had a particularly impressive win in the All-Star Game where he lost the clamp, but dove to get to a loose ball to swipe it over to a teammate.
No. 14 Tyler Eye, LSM, St. Anthony’s (N.Y.) / Legacy
Eye’s strengths are across the board: he can cover athletic midfielders and quick attackmen, pick up contested ground balls, and he demonstrated the ability to play effective off-ball defense by keeping his stick in the passing lane and stealing space from his opponent’s when adjacent to the ball. Moreover, Eye was one of the more athletic long stick middies at the event. He can run from box-to-box with the ball in his stick without being caught from behind by a riding attackman. Nobody took the ball away more, either. Eye has a penchant for timing his checks perfectly, including a ridiculous strip early in the All-Star Game.
No. 16 Quinlan Coryat, defense, Maclay School (Fla.) / Florida Crabs
An athletic defenseman with a great deal of potential. He used his speed to stay in front of some of the faster attackmen throughout the event. Coryat was able to put pressure on his man’s hands and didn’t get beat by speed. He has a great approach and he gets his stick in passing lanes. Simply put, he’s a disruptor on defense. He is physical and uses his hands well to gain an advantage on his opponents. He has all of the physical tools and skills to be a very good long stick midfielder or close defenseman.
No. 17 Kyle Eggebraten, defense, St. Viator (Ill.) / Team Illinois
All-Star. Eggebraten product made a name for himself at the event, jumping off the page with a clean, ruthlessly effective slap check that caused a turnover early in the day. He was excellent at covering the ball, he collapsed quickly to support his teammates, and he’s a good stick handler. He uses timely and appropriate checks on defense, and he doesn’t shy away from contact. He kept his head on a swivel and used non-verbal communication on defense in the All-Star Game that made it hard for the opposing team to score against the Black defense. He is a well-coached and disciplined defenseman. He is certainly going to make an impact at St. Viator this spring.
No. 18 Logan Missett, defense, La Salle (Pa.) / NXT
Missett doesn’t shy away from contact and he can cover attackmen outside of the box with his excellent footwork and speed. He uses his stick to stay on an offensive player’s hands and he can collect ground balls under duress. He was outstanding in the clearing game for the Green team throughout the day. Missett is an impressive defender whose game will take great strides playing for one of the best high school programs in the country.
No. 19 Colten Yates ‘25, defense, Rebels
Colten was one of the few 25’s who attended the event, and he more than held his own against some many talented attackmen. He did a good job of clogging up passing lanes by having his stick in the air and collapsing off of the ball. He demonstrated some really good footwork as the hot man when he kept his feet moving and his head was on a swivel. He worked hard to get upfield in the clearing game and he has a good handle. Yates approached the ball with discipline and he kept his stick off of his hip.
No. 20 Henry Weller, defense, Georgetown Prep (Md.) / Next Level
All-Star. Weller has great posture when playing on ball and off ball defense. He has a very good handle and can pick up contested ground balls in the defensive end of the field. He has an active stick on defense, but he didn’t take unnecessary risks on the ball and was at his best as a quiet shutdown option. He’s very well coached and quite talented, and he has the potential to ascend to being one of the most highly sought-after ’24s in September of 2022.
No. 21 Daniel Dorszewski, goalie, Palatine (Ill.) / Team One
Dorszewski has quick hands and really good footwork. He made several big saves for the Green team in the paint after his defense broke down. He thoroughly impressed with his ability to steal surefire goals from his opponents throughout the day. He did a really good job on his clearing progressions that resulted in early offense for his team.
No. 22 Alex Rolfe, goalie, Deerfield (Mass.) / Eclipse
Playing against Eclipse has to be a nightmare for an attackman because you either have to shoot on Carter Hagen or Rolfe. Neither option strikes us as particularly pleasant. Rolfe tracked the ball well and he has a good stance. He’s a high-effort goalie, consistently chasing out shots in order to regain possession for his team. He has a good stick and was an asset to the Green team in the clearing game: he can throw the ball on a rope, or loft it to one of his teammates on the run. Rolfe never appeared to be rattled when his team had defensive breakdowns.
No. 1 Doster Crowell, attack, New Canaan (Conn.) / Eclipse
Crowell was a no-brainer pick for best name at the event, but he’s also got some game to go with it. He put forth tremendous effort in riding and attacking loose balls throughout the day. He moves well without the ball, he has his stick in the right place most, if not all, of the time, and he fights to get to the middle of the field. Crowell uses his really good footwork to get his hands free, and he made the correct decisions when he drew double teams. He cuts hard off ball and can finish, and he’s is comfortable using his off hand.
No. 2 Luke Macaluso, attack, Culver (Ind.) / True
All-Star. Another highly skilled attackman who has tremendous vision. Of his many talents, Macaluso’s consistency throughout the day stood out. Macaluso had the best goal of the event – you could make a case that he had two or three of the very best, actually – on a hard cut through the defense when he received a feed and shot it around-the-world. He also has the versatility to play a prominent role as a midfielder for Culver this season because of his ability to gain separation as a dodger and then make the correct reads in an offense. Macaluso was a threat from just about anywhere on the field, whether it was at X, dodging up top as a middie or doing damage on the wings.

No. 3 Michael Quinn, attack, St. Sebastian’s (Mass.) / Laxachusetts
Quinn played with great effort all day at the event. He practiced hard, dodged harder, and he used his size to his advantage. He has excellent stick protection and he used his footwork to escape double teams. He felt his defender and looked through the defense for his open teammates. Very few attackmen have the ability to do this at this stage of their careers, and not only is he a skilled player, but he was tremendous using verbal and non-verbal cues to get his teammates on the same page on offense. He shoots the ball hard and he’s a threat to score when he has the ball in his stick.
No. 4 Patrick Kenah, attack, Princeton (N.J.) / Tri-State
Kenah has awesome hands and he moves well without the ball. He is skilled, smart, and well coached. He rode to the midline and generated several turnovers for his team. He unselfishly looked to make the extra pass to an open player, and he’s
No. 5 Grant Mathieson, attack, Mamaroneck (N.Y.) / Team 91 Tristate
A good off-ball player who keeps his feet moving on offense. He knows how to occupy his defender and cut to the appropriate places on offense. While he may be a natural lefty, he has the ability to catch, shoot, and score with his right hand.

No. 6 Hudson Hausmann, midfield, Brunswick (Conn.) / Eclipse
All-Star MVP. Absolutely dominant all day and has to be in the mix as one of the best players in the country for the ’24 class. Hausmann can beat his man and score. Second, he shoots the ball hard lefty or righty from a few different release points. Third, he took great pride in playing individual and team defense. Lastly, he is a very skilled lacrosse player who passes the ball with accuracy. Hudson is athletic, great off the ground, and he played hard all day long. When he decided that he wanted to score a goal, he pretty much got whatever he wanted, and he was lights-out in the All-Star Game, collecting MVP honors.
No. 7 Andrew Jimenez, midfield, Oak Hall (Fla.) / SweetLax Florida
Jimenez is a very good athlete and a talented lacrosse player. He didn’t settle for low percentage shots down the alley; when he had the opportunity to do so, he fought to get back to the middle of the field and increase his shooting angle. He was able to carry double teams and make the right decision after drawing the attention of the defense. He was very good on defense throughout the day: intelligent and aggressive defense on the ball, and he supported the on ball defender by collapsing in the crease. He was an asset to the Navy team in the clearing game because of his keen understanding of spacing and movement.
No. 8 Andrew Weissman, midfield, Yorktown (N.Y.) / Prime Time
Weissman was very good on the wing and defense for his team at the event. He does a lot of things quite well: individual and team defense, picking up contested ground balls, and he worked to get back to the goalie when his team cleared it. He’s well coached, in addition to being a dangerous dodger on the wing, and made strides as a player throughout the day.

No. 9 Luca Petruccelli, midfield, Manhasset (N.Y.) / Team 91
Petruccelli has excellent footwork and he’s a very hard dodger. He has a quick release and a tremendous shot on the run. He is quite skilled and well coached: he knew when to fade, get through, and cut for his teammates. He knows how to play the game, and he plays it well. Petruccelli was active defensively and caused problems for offenses with his in-your-face, bully-ball defense.
No. 10 Nicholas Markowski, midfield, Harborfields (N.Y.) / LI Express
A physical on ball defender who competed hard throughout the day. He can pick up a ground ball in his defensive end, run down the field without getting caught, and put pressure on the defense with a shot on the run. He demonstrated tremendous toughness throughout the day.
No. 11 Will Schmitz, midfield, Brunswick (Conn.) / 2Way
Schmitz is a very effective dodger and a threat to score whenever he has the ball in his stick. He has good stick protection and he sees the field well. Schmitz uncorks a powerful and deceptive overhand shot, and he moves well without the ball on offense. He’s a two way middie who demonstrated a commitment and desire to play individual and team defense.
No. 12 Christian Tapia, faceoff, Iona Prep (N.Y.) / Express North
Tapia is a skilled faceoff man with quick hands and great technique. He knows how to play the ball to his wing men, and he has really good offensive and defensive exits. He was a threat to score when the ball was in his stick on fast breaks, and he hustled off the field after gaining possession. He had an outstanding day at the event.
No. 13 Conner Kunce, faceoff, Nease (Fla.) / Georgia Tigers
Standing neutral grip faceoffs are like a chess match; really good faceoff guys have to have a variety of moves, and know when to use them, in order to win consistently. Kunce was really effective with his top sidewall moves, flashing a great quick clamp and a clamp plunger. Moreover, when he has the ball in his stick, he can handle pressure from the defense.
No. 15 Evan Gordon, LSM, Salesianum (Del.) / Rising Sons
Gordon utilized his athletic ability and footwork to defend some of the most dangerous dodgers at the event. He’s a physical player with an active stick. He collapsed well when not defending the ball, and he helped his team clear the ball efficiently. Gordon did well off the ground and he competed hard for ground balls.
No. 16 Cooper Callahan, defense, Fairfield Prep (Conn.) / Eclipse
Callahan plays aggressively and absolutely loves to mix it up, and he has all the makings of a guy that will be a pain for attackmen to go up against for years to come. He made it hard for his opponent to get the ball. He’s physical, good off of the ground, and he’s got solid footwork. His motor never stops and he’s got toughness for days.
No. 17 Michael Michaelis, defense, Gonzaga (D.C.) / Next Level
Another beast out of Gonzaga, Michaelis has great size, stick work, and he’s a physical defender. He took control of the defense early with his desire to communicate with his new teammates. He’s well coached, disciplined, and a competitor. He made a point to match up against the best attackmen from the opposing teams in every game, and you love to see the mentality of trying to get better by playing the best every game.
No. 18 Grant Ramsey, defense, Carmel (Ind.) / Cherries
An imposing figure on the back end, Ramsey isn’t afraid to use his size to his advantage. He makes contact at the point of attack, he moves his feet well, and Ramsey has long strides and is a good athlete. His stick work is solid and he steals space as a defender by keeping his stick in passing lanes.
No. 19 Bryce Rothwell, defense, Lucy Beckham (S.C.) / Charleston Elite
Rothwell was another defenseman who used his size and strength to take control of his opponent. He worked hard on the ball and supported his teammates by sloughing in off the ball. He elevated his level of play throughout the day as the competition became stiffer.

No. 20 Alex Fontecchio, defense, Deerfield (Mass.) / NJ Riot
Fontecchio played with an incredible amount of energy and effort all day. He simply doesn’t stop going. When he wasn’t playing close defense, he was on the wing. He moved his feet well and made positive plays all day. He’s especially good at creating havoc on the ball as a defender, but his greatest attribute is his selflessness as a player. He chased out a number of shots on the endline at the event. Those little plays make a big difference in games and are the invisible plays that help teams achieve success.
No. 21 Hayden Leslie, goalie, Providence (N.C.) / Team 24/7
Leslie has a very good stance and he’s patient in the cage. He gets set, sees the ball well, and he makes saves. He exploded to the ball on shots inside the paint and he made a few big saves in places where goalies shouldn’t be expected to get a piece of the ball. He knows when to come out of the cage to take away space, and when to stay on his arc.
No. 22 Tucker Williams, goalie, Brunswick (Conn.) / 2Way
A potential heir to the Brunswick goalie throne, Williams is vocal, has excellent technique, and he moved well from pipe-to-pipe. He made several big saves on shots inside and impressed us all day with his consistency. Williams moves across the crease really well, something he accentuated with a ridiculous 1v1 save on the back door against the Red team.
