2023 Boys High School Season Is Here, Watchlists Drop and Coaches Poll
Thank you as always for subscribing and reading the Utah Lacrosse Report newsletter, we are brought to you by our sponsors Tribal West Lacrosse (website) & MinersTown Strength and Conditioning (website), who make the great coverage here at ULR possible!
Before we get into the fun stuff, I wanted to give Kenzie Christiansen a huge thank you for the help with the newsletter. With so much growth, and so much to share in and around the world of lacrosse, we felt like this would be a better option to provide more coverage, in a focused manner so that we don’t leave out the many deserving programs and stories out there. We always appreciate feedback and with the season starting, should be able to keep a regular schedule of releasing newsletters, weather permitting. I also appreciate all those helping to keep me informed of the happenings locally, it has been a learning curve! I am looking forward to the grind of the season where I can finally get eyes on games and be back in my natural habitat, the broadcast booth with Dane Stewart.
Utah Boys Lacrosse Report Media Packages
One aspect of our coverage that has grown significantly thanks to the hard work and effort of Patrick Sanger is our ability to offer media packages for local teams and athletes. Patrick has assembled various packages that include picture carousels and highlight videos in a more focused, sideline-oriented style to give a different perspective from the birds-eye view that Rewind provides. Packages range from one game to the entire season and have been a popular option for teams that are looking to add a professional look and feel to their social media and player highlight options. You can reach out to Patrick directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Patrick has also been heavily involved in our Instagram profile, which has become a great resource to pass along any announcements that may not make it into the newsletter. You can see some examples of what is available here:
With the season upon us, whether Mother Nature wants to cooperate or not, I wanted to pass along the calendar for the High School season for Boys Lacrosse. Feel free to shoot us an email if you have any questions and we’ll do our best to provide you with whatever information we can unearth.

Additionally, if you are a coach and have not been in touch with Jeff Brzoska regarding reporting scores to Deseret News, uploading stats to MaxPreps, information regarding postponed games, and everything else that comes with this time of year, please reach out and we can connect you with Jeff. As the local UHSAA Coaches Rep and USA Lacrosse Utah Rep, you won’t find a better source of information when it comes to lacrosse. On that note…
2023 Pre-Season AA Boys Lacrosse Watchlist
What exactly is the Pre-Season AA Boys Lacrosse Watchlist? I can hardly improve on the description that Tim provided last year, so with credit to the founder, the Watchlist is as follows;
“The 2023 Preseason Boys All-American Watchlist is a list of players, nominated by their coaches and a handpicked committee comprised of college coaches, club coaches and trusted lacrosse observers. As the season progresses, the committee will continue to monitor players across the Wasatch Front and create a mid-season list in mid-April. Hopefully, there will be many additions to this list as the season goes on and players show their hard work paying off on the field. This list does not guarantee or even suggest anything when it comes to All-American voting, it is merely a way for coaches and fans to gather the same information and evaluate players as the season goes on, rather than trying to remember a certain game that happened weeks prior. The coaches will have the ultimate say at the end of the season as to who the 10 All-Americans will be.”
Good luck to everyone on the watchlist!!!
