Too early to look at next year's roster?

Attack
Garnsey, Willets

I think Gleason (primarily a dodger) and Jackoboice (pass first lefty) fit better here, but may again be needed at the offensive midfield. Chase and Morin are other options for the third guy. Will miss Wynne's ground balls and finishing touch.

Midfield
Costabile, Drake, Gleason
Jackoboice, Stinn, McNamara

I suspect Gleason will stay on the field at attack while the second midfield plays. Will miss Byrne and Collins here, but hope some of the depth we saw in the Army game will step up. Komatz, Fay, Gayhardt, Menke are options.

FOGO
Leonard, Hyland, Frane

Will miss Travisano. Hopefully Hyland will be healthy. I expect the double pole trend to continue.

SSDM
Schantz, Phillips

Millikan was under appreciated by whoever votes on all-americans. Will miss him. Looking for depth from Cassidy and Mirer.

LSM
Restic, Trense

Can't understate what Sexton did here. Restic played some as a freshman. Not sure if he was hurt this year or fell out of favor. Hoping for a bounce back season. Depth from Cochran.

Defense
Crance, Kielty, Cohen

When's the last time we've had a close unit come back intact? This group should be one of the best in the country. Littlefield, Farnish, Blommer, Olinger will provide depth. Any bagpipers in this group?

Goalie
Schmidt
Zullo

Expect a jump here in year two.

Thoughts?


Slide Drake to attack. *

Drake seems to have a better outside shot. I'd rather see him stay at midfield in favor of Gleason sliding to attack. Maybe we'll see them both play both.


Am I wrong. We'ren't we playing him at attack this year?

He's listed at attack on the roster.


He is listed on the roster as attack, but...

that's not too reliable. Willets is listed as a midfielder for example. Drake subbed in through the box as part of the top group of offensive midfielders in the middle of the year. He displayed prowess both shooting from up top and dodging from X. He started a couple games at midfield when Costabile and Gleason were hurt, and spent some time on the top EMO unit. Seemed to disappear, presumably injured, from the UNC game on. He was dressed for the tournament game against Denver, but did not play.

I expect he'll be an important cog in the offense next year at attack and/or midfield.


Mikey Drake?
