USA Lacrosse High School Boys' Players of the Week


Caleb Fyock helped the Cadets to repeat as WCAC champions with his usually steady performance between the pipes.

The USA Lacrosse Players of the Week recognize the most outstanding individual performances in high school boys’ lacrosse in each of the five regions — Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, South, Midwest and West — outlined in our high school coverage.


Will Emsing, Boston College HS (Mass.)

Boston College HS (Mass.) has some big wins this year, knocking off the top-ranked schools all around New England. That trend continued Saturday when the Eagles defeated Fairfield Prep (Conn.) 14-10. Will Emsing played a starring role in this win, and many others in the Eagles sterling season. The senior attackman had four goals and two assists against the Jesuits, which followed five goals and two assists in a 15-9 win over Longmeadow (Mass.) and the Tufts commit had two goals and one assist in an 11-5 victory over St. John’s Shrewsbury (Mass.).

“As a captain and leader, Will Emsing separates himself with his offensive IQ,” Boston College HS coach Marcus Craigwell said. “His ability to break down defenses and attack their weaknesses is impressive. His patience and understanding of the offense brings the best out of his teammates. He is key to the success of our offense.”

Also notable: Rhett Chambers, Mamaroneck (N.Y.); Kyle Colsey, Ridgefield (Conn.); Gavin Creo, Chaminade (N.Y.); Mikey Luce, Bayport-Blue Point (N.Y.); Brendan O’Keefe, Farmingdale (N.Y.)

Caleb Fyock, St. John’s (D.C.)

Paul VI (Va.) had nearly as many shots as St. John’s, but it was the Cadets that jumped out to a 5-1 lead on their way to a 9-5 win in the WCAC tournament championship. Caleb Fyock had a lot to do with the Panthers’ inability to score goals. The St. John’s goalie helped the Cadets to repeat as WCAC champions with his usually steady performance between the pipes. He made 12 saves to bring his season total to 174 in 16 games played. He allowed 5.56 goals per game. The title game was just the second time this season that Paul VI had been held to five or fewer goals this season. Fyock and the Cadets held Paul VI to four goals in their regular-season meeting. Fyock will continue his career at Ohio State next year.

Also notable: Colin Burns, Georgetown (Md.); Shane Elliott, Loyola-Blakefield (Md.); Spencer Ford, Boys’ Latin (Md.); Colin Gray, Broadneck (Md.); Nate Kabiri, Georgetown (Md.)

— Justin Feil


Alex Lobel, Roswell (Ga.)

In his final games before heading to the University of Michigan, Alex Lobel powered his team’s offense to a state championship. In the title game, Lobel scored seven times in a 17-10 win over Allatoona (Ga.). In the semifinal, Lobel fired six shots into the net in a 20-12 over Cambridge (Ga.).

Also notable: James Cardillo, Middle Creek (N.C.); Ayden Turner, Cardinal Gibbons (N.C.); Duncan Zielke, Highland Park (Texas)

— Justin Boggs


Marek Tzagournis, Dublin Jerome (Ohio)

Connor Buczek is a big name in Buckeye State lacrosse, having starred at St. Xavier before becoming a three-time All-American at Cornell. (Following a successful professional career, Buczek now is the head coach of the Big Red.) So for Tzagournis to tie Buczek’s Ohio career points record of 410 is highly impressive. To do so in just three years after losing his freshman year to COVID-19 is even more remarkable. And now Tzagournis enters the postseason one point from having the record all to himself.

Also notable: Jack Caine, Upper Arlington (Ohio); Drew Lockwood, Hartland (Mich.); Brock Narciso, Rockhurst Jesuit (Mo.); Sam Old, Upper Arlington (Ohio); Johnny Steffano, Rockhurst Jesuit (Mo.)

— Jonah Rosenblum


Cohen Krudwig, Foothill-Santa Ana (Calif.)

The senior goalie proved to be a key addition to the Knights’ lineup in the second half of the season, though he was splitting his focus between lacrosse and his true love of ice hockey. His performance during the CIF Southern Section Division 1 final four especially was key for Foothill, which won its first CIF title after finishing as the runner-up each of the past two years. Krudwig, who had been in and out of the program the past couple years, collected 19 saves in a 10-5 win over Corona del Mar (Calif.) in the semifinals and had 14 saves in a 9-8 win over Loyola-Los Angeles (Calif.) in the final.

Also notable: Bode Jellerson, Foothill-Santa Ana (Calif.); Hudson Lee, De La Salle (Calif.)
