It is up to Drexel, how good they want to be next year.

They don’t loose many people: Baker and some midfielders are the only players that received quality PT.

They return almost everyone, and they have an additional year of play under their belt. The young coaching staff has another year to work with the kids.

Tthey bring in arguably Bates’s best recruiting class.

It is up to the Dragons how good they want to be

Incoming freshman class for '09-10 --->
Martin Goldfarb, Springfield, Midfield
Nick Trizano, Iona Prep NY, Attack
Stephen Chant, Bayport-Blue Point NY, Midfield
Brendan Glynn, St Joseph's Prep, Attack

Goldfarb & Trizano are top 100 recruits.

However, Hofstra, PSU, UMass & maybe even Delaware have good to very good recruits coming in 2010.

I think Bates should take a page out of the Syracuse playbook [with the transfer Cody Jamieson]
and pursue some high-grade Junior college or other transfer for next year in order to take a step up
with the other schools who are joining the CAA next year.

I have a hard time believing Coach Bates would be on the list for the top job at Denver, but not at Dartmouth.
If he'd ever make the move to his Alma Mater, now would be the time. Openings on Ivy League teams don't come around
often. Plus, unfortunately, one of Bates' big backers at DU - the school president, Dr. Papadakis - passed on this year.
Lastly he's put in over 10 years at DU, and faces an uphill challenge in the new CAA.

Attack
Brendan Glynn – Captain of the Dukes club team class of ’09. Scoring attackmen. Shooter. Attends St Joe’s Prep. Putting up big numbers this year. Leads St Joe’s.
Nick Trizano – Attackmen. Lead the country in scoring last year. Iona Prep. Bad league, but put up a lot of points. Can feed and score, but likes to put the ball in the back of the net.
Robert Church – Canadian Attackmen. Righty. Big time scorer. Impressed a lot of people while playing for the Westminister team at the Tournament of Champions.

Midfield
Martin Goldfarb – Very athletic midfielder. Scoring threat. Fast and strong. Leads Springfield this year. Played for All-State lacrosse.
Mike Roe – Midfielder. Attended Jake Reed’s Blue Chip. Played for Baltimore Crabs, FCA National team, and MD Freestate team. FO midfielder and big time scorer.
Devon Thomas – Midfielder. Strong kid. Can face-off play offense and defense. Doesn’t play in the best league but puts up good numbers.
Another middy from NY

Defense
Sean Cunningham – Highly recruited football player. Very athletic. Defenseman. Physically imposing. Strong and fast. Played for team twist. Can play long stick midfielder and close but mostly LSM.
A recruit from PA and Upstate NY

I might be missing some but I'm not sure.

-----------------------

I can't see him going to Denver. Plain and simple
I could see him going to Dartmouth, but at this point in time, he would be better off staying at Drexel. Dartmouth's future is looking pretty pathetic.

Rumor has it that Drexel's lacrosse team recently picked up Joe Ciavarelli -- a close-in defender from West Point. According to West Point's web site, Joe played high school lacrosse at Springfield (delco) class of 2005 and attended the Army prep school before being admitted to West Point. Joe was listed as a soph on Army's 2009 roster and, therefore, would appear to have 2 years of lacrosse eligibility remaining. Hopefully, Joe will be able to help Drexel shore up its defense.

One more comment on Coach Bates and the head coach openings at Denver and Dartmouth.
Bates roots in the Phila. area go back to 1992 when he was coach at Archbishop Ryan, then moved on to be an assistant under
Randy Voight in 1994, at the same time he was playing for the Wings.

Drexel has been successful with transfers and freshman starters in the last 3 season starting with their marquee win at Virginia in 2007-
-McWilliams and Chapman transferred in that year while Casey and McCormick were impact freshman
-This past year Bergman,Tueber, Manos, Collins all stepped into big roles.

This next incoming freshman class will hopefully far outpace the loss of the senior class-

The Dragons will return all of there starting Attack next year.. It could be a battle with Trizano coming in.. Possibly switching some attack to mid-field. Bates has done that with Casey and Stockel who both played attack in high school.

The Mid-field Next year will be have the biggest drop-off. Van-houten and Neary were both two way midfielders who could clear the ball and run in transition. Dart Will be a huge loss at shortstick D mid but I think Dennis Murray and Andrew Collins are going to be able to step in and take control at D-mid and also help with clearing. Kevin Stockel, Kyle Bergman, Adam Dennis are returning. There are big question marks surrounding Layfield, who has been injured. Hopefully the Incoming freshman and red shirt freshman can fill some of these holes. Goldfarb could come in and have an immediate impact.

At D Munoz and Baker are the big losses- Munoz got alot of time and played well in his senior season. Returning at close D are McCormick and Tueber. The third pole will be up for grabs, possible red shirts Chris Walsh or James Whalen. At long stick Dana Wilbur was impressive as a freshman.

Manos played great as a freshman this past year, hopefully he will return quicker and more agile to improve Drexel's stopping ability. Hopefully competition for the starting spot will keep him sharp also.

Of course, its tough just relying on freshman. Its a big step up from even MIAA or IAC, to name a couple prep conferences. So let's see how things develop on the transfer front. I think they'll need to bring in a Soph or Junior or two where they have needs, say at midfield, as well as providing some experience -- such as Chapman provided a couple years ago.

Andy Towers Tabbed as New Head Coach at Dartmouth

Good news for DU. With this and Tierney settling in at Denver -- looks like Bates is sticking around.

Anyone know what Drexel's schedule will look like next year? I know we will be playing UMass, PSU, Hofstra, Towson, and Delaware, but who else?

Anyone think Coach Bates could get the job at Princeton? What about Coach Raymond returning to take over Coach Metz's position?

this weekend, rising senior goalie AJ Froehlich out of indian hill high school in cincinnati ohio committed to Drexel. He was getting heavily recruited by Ualbany, Delaware, and Vermont.

Well, Manos is definitely a big kid, and intimidating in goal. He cuts down the angles well, partially because he takes up alot of the goal... but he is not the most athletic kid.

I saw Mark manos play in several high school football games and can assure you that he has all of the athletic skills needed to be a very good D-1 goalie.

Did you see him play vs. Villanova ? He can not come out of the cage to cover anyone. He is very slow.

Why would anyone want a goalie to come out of the cage? Everytime that I've seen that trick tried in the last 5 years it has backfired on the team that was trying to get the ball, including the Dragons in last year's game with Robert Morris. Even super fast goalies like Albany's Brett Queener get in trouble when they leave the cage.
