Players of the Week - Group 4

Player of the Week

Section V Boys Lacrosse Coordinator Mike Simon in conjunction with the Connors and Ferris law firm are, once again, sponsoring recognition of noteworthy performances throughout the season.

For "Group 4" we have four players who had standout performances in since the last set of awards.

Defensive Player of the Week

Logan CallahanEthan Ruller - Webster Thomas

The Titans are 11-1 at this point in the season and one reason is their goalie, Ethan Ruller. The Cornell commit has a 66% save record this year with 92 saves and in big games he comes up with big saves. Out of the cage, he is the quarterback, able to make quick pitches or read the field to break a ride.

His father, and Head Coach for the Titans, Rob Ruller says: "Ethan has been a pillar in our program for four years.  Taking over as a freshmen and leading us since then he is a constant worker.  He is only a few saves away from the all time record even without the season last year.  His commitment to the process, and his consistency in the net is one reason we have been playing well. He has played big in numerous games in the net, but also leading our team in clears and creating offense for our team. "

Defensive Player of the Week

Jackson NiemanJackson Nieman - Canandaigua

With a defensive unit as good as Canandaigua`s it is hard to choose one representative, but Jackson Nieman has made a big impact in some tough games for the Braves in the last few weeks. Playing all over the field, the Stevens recruit disrupts opponent plans, often taking the ball before they can set up their offensive set. 

Head Coach Deven York is a fan: "Jackson Nieman has been a four-year starter for us. His knowledge of our defensive package makes him a coach on the field. His commitment to this program is unmatched. He is a fierce competitor whose motor never stops. Jackson is a menace between the lines. He challenges the opposing teams` best dodgers all over the field. He is a captain of the team and an absolute pleasure to coach."

Offensive Player of the Week

Ayden MowryAyden Mowry - Penn Yan

Penn Yan is undefeated (13-0) at this point and have scored 199 goals. Their strong offensive unit has several times this season posted three players in the top ten on the leader boards. Ayden Mowry is clearly in control when the ball is on the offensive end of the field. He often starts to set up an offensive set before the coaches call for it and he also directs highly affective rides when needed. The Lenoir Rhyne commit has 57g-11a this year and 161 points in his three seasons. 

Head Coach Brian Hobart says: "Ayden’s work ethic has pushed him to have success.  He’s a team leader and loves to compete."

Offensive Player of the Week

Jamie O`Neil

Jamie O`Neil - Bath

Leading the Section in points is Bath junior attackman Jamie O`Neil. He has at this point 49g-51a. His 3g-3a game against Pal-Mac helped the Rams to a 10-9 victory and his 9g-3a helped them win their Geneva game. His shooting percentage of 72% on cage and scoring percentage of 50% goals from shots on make him a threat whenever he had the ball, but with over fifty assists, he is ready and willing to find someone else to score.

Coach Ken DiDomineck says: "Jamie’s game performances have heightened against top teams on our schedule. He had great games versus Geneva and Pal Mac. His hard work in the off season and throughout this season’s practices have paid off on game day. "
