The 2020 season is months away, but it’s not too early to list a few of the players expected to make an impact on the upcoming Illinois high school lacrosse season in the Class of 2021.
I have compiled a list of some of the players to watch for the upcoming season and breaking it down to the Classes of 2020, 2021 and 2022.
This list is not a ranking of the best players in the state. Instead, it is meant to shine a light on players who earned post-season accolades or anticipated to make an impact in future seasons as recommended by coaches.
The players on this list were selected based on the following criteria: US Lacrosse All-American, Under Armour All-American, All-State honors, All-League honors, Head Coach submission.
