Coach’s comment: “We return most of our offense led by Bryce Reece (39G 16 A), Mason Bregman (25G 37 A), Will Mercado (14 G 16A), and Luke Cole (18G 18A). We will be young on defense but return all conference goalie Rob Pensabene. We expect to be compete in every game but will have to play a different type of game with new pieces on the field at certain spots. We still have several key pieces from last year’s success that will have to lead for younger players as they gain varsity experience.”

High School: Washington Township

Head Coach: Josh Hanlon

2018 Record: 7-12 (Reacher Group IV South Quarterfinals)

Players to watch:
Senior Dante Magliano (Kean), Magliano had 27 goals, 20 assists and 34 ground balls last year to make the all Olympic Conference second team. Junior midfielder GianLuca Lockhart, was second in points on the team with 29 goals, 13 assists, and 81 GBs.
Junior midfielder Zach Grassi returns and in 2018 led the team with 150 ground balls and is the Minutemen’s faceoff specialist.
Senior Albert Tobey
