Kendal Rogers had a big day Saturday – he helped Patriot 2017 (N.J.) finish 3-0 in pool play at the Philly Summer Invitational and then followed that up with two goals to help the Black Team win the 2017 All-Star Game at United Sports.

“We were moving the ball and I had a lot of goals dodging from up top; and that’s basically what we do with Patriot,” said the midfielder from Morristown High. “It (the All-Star Game) was really good; a lot of fast and athletic kids. The talent was definitely higher; it’s just you have to hustle even more to keep up.”

Why is his Patriot team off to a fast start? “I think we have been moving the ball and hustling,” Rogers said.

What did he learn from the All-Star Game? “Keep your head up! If you make a bad play it’s what you do next that’s the important thing.”

What type of college is he interested in? “I am interested in neuroscience or pre-med, so I am basically finding (the school with the right) education and looking for the the lacrosse go along with it.”

Other that shined:

Brock Anderson, 2017 ATT, HEADstrong L.C., Ridley (PA)

What goals did you have for the All-Star Game and how did you perform?
Anderson:
“After today, because we (HEADstrong) struggled, I wanted to pick myself up in this game. I wanted to get myself noticed and hustle and make the good play, the team play. I didn’t want to be selfish and I just wanted to work and work.”

How did you adjust to the competition?
Anderson:
“The competition was great. Early in the day it’s great, but coming out here it’s the best of the best. You have to step up your game. Every kids is as good as you if not better.”

What you learn from the event?
Anderson:
“You have to keep your feet moving and hustle. If you take one second off that one second will cost you. If you make mistakes you just keep your head up and make the next play.”

What type of college are you looking for?
Anderson:
“I am in the process of looking at a couple schools. I have narrowed down my choices. I want a school with a good education and of course, good lacrosse. But lacrosse is second.”

I learned you have to dig deep. You have to put everything into it. It doesn’t come easy; you have to work hard. It was great fun and I definitely feel like I got better playing against these kids.”

What type of college are you looking for?
