FaceOff Club Disclaimer: With a national landscape that has thousands of HS teams and tens of thousands of players, it is impossible to identify every player out there who has top faceoff talent. This list is a compilation of players we have seen play either in spring games, summer tournament, or at our competitive and instructional events. Other players have submitted video and statistical data to us that has merited a ranking.
