The Warrior 40 is a three-day competition that features the nation’s top underclass high school lacrosse players. Players will receive coaching from Major League Lacrosse stars and participate in skills competitions and a final competition.
This year’s competition takes place Aug. 13-15 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colo.
Final 12 additions to roster:
Brian Balkam, 2013, Smithtown East (St. James, N.Y.), goalie, North Carolina
Having a father who was a goalie helped Balkam develop from an early age. His overall leadership from inside the crease is his advantage over his peers. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound junior was an All-Star at the Battle of the Hotbeds recruiting camp over the summer and followed that up with a junior year in which he recorded 209 saves.
Tim Rotanz, 2013, Shoreham-Wading River (Shoreham, N.Y.), attack, Maryland
Rotanz has been a name on Long Island since his sophomore season in which he totaled 110 points on 68 goals and 42 assists. Rotanz was the only sophomore selected to New York Newsday’s All-Long Island team last season. This season in helping Shoreham-Wading River win the Class C state championship, Rotanz scored over 42 goals and 40 assists. Rotanz is committed to Maryland.
