This week’s LaxRecords Weekly Highlight Show on YouTube looks at the 10 Front Runners for LaxRecords Player of the Year. I do a rundown looking at each player and giving their argument for why they should be the No. 1 lacrosse player at the end of the 2019 season.
Cullen Robinette from Durango (Colo.) could surpass his older brother Kyle as the program’s all-time leading scorer this season. Robinette entered the season with 103 goals and 94 assists leaving him 58 points shy of tying Kyle’s record of 255.
Trough two games this season, Robinette already has 15 assists, which leaves him six shy of 100 for his career.
Achievement of the Week
Dylan McFarland from St. Stephens (N.C.) in Hickory (near Charlotte, N.C.) joined the 200 Club this week with a 13-point performance against Asheville (N.C.). The junior now has 202 points on the strength of 119 career goals. He is coming off a 97-point sophomore season and has 23 points through two games.
Impressive Performance of the Week
Torrey Pines (Calif.) rolled through opponents from three states last week. The Falcons started their charge with a 13-8 win over Loyola-Los Angeles (Calif.) on March 9. They followed that up with an 18-4 win over Phillips Andover (Mass.), followed by a 6-4 win over defending Texas state champ The Woodlands (Texas).
The Falcons' good fortune ran out against St. Ignatius Prep (Calif.) in what could be considered the California state championship. St. Ignatius Prep downed Torrey Pines 8-6. But with a 4-1 record on the week, the Falcons proved why they are considered among the best teams in the country.
Upset of the Week
Blake Chami scored three goals to help Benjamin (Fla.) to a 12-10 win over Jupiter (Fla.). The senior scored the first two goals of the game to help the Buccaneers off to a hot start. Jupiter came back and took a 6-2 lead, but the score was 7-6 by halftime. Trevor Natalie scored two goals and an assist and AJ Levitt scored two goals in the win.

You Can Make a Difference
When I founded LaxRecords.com, I could have made it into a for-profit company, but I wanted to create something different - there's plenty of recruiting coverage available. I've worked hard over the last four years to keep all content free and open to everyone. My promise to you is that I will never charge for access to the content on LaxRecords.com.
I believe LaxRecords.com is something special. It is like a library or Wikipedia. A place to discover the history of lacrosse. To my knowledge, I am the only person doing this work in lacrosse.
If everyone reading this donated, my fundraiser work would be done within an hour. But not everyone can or will donate. And that's fine.
This year, please consider making a donation of $5, $20, $50 or whatever you can to protect and sustain LaxRecords.com. Can't afford that amount? How about $2 per month? I created a way to make a monthly, recurring donation. If you donate $2 per month, that's $24 per year. Added up over many of you, that makes a huge difference and helps continue improvements.
