Where Players Get Their Gear
Jax Lax Families,
We are excited to announce that registration is officially open for our 2021 Spring Season in the NFYLL.
Here a couple important things about the upcoming season and registration:
NFYLL Spring Season
Practice will begin the week of February 8th and will be in either Riverside or San Marco. We are shooting for 1 mandatory practice per week per age group and also 1 voluntary all age skills session per week
Games will be at Plantation Park in Julington Creek on the following Saturdays:
2/27, 3/6, 3/13, 3/27, 4/3, 4/10, 4/17 and a full weekend Jamboree on 4/24-25
The fee for the spring season is $150. Because of our generous sponsors this year we do not want to turn anyone away and will be able to offer financial aid for our families. If you are interested in this possibility, do not go to the registration site. Instead please email Jed Davis at [email protected] directly to confidentially inquire about this opportunity.
Another new thing this season is you will see the option to rent equipment from the league for $50 for the season. This will most likely be the equipment that you are already using on loan from Jax Lax for the fall clinics. If you are going to purchase new equipment for your son, whenever possible please buy the color white. It will match our uniforms a little better.
US Lacrosse Membership
At the beginning of the registration process you will be asked what your US Lacrosse Membership # is. There will be links to look it up and also another link on how to get one if you do not have one. It is $30 for the year. The NFYLL requires that every player be a member and we also require it for our players because it is how we can get insurance for our season. With the membership you will get a pretty cool magazine that I think your boys will love.
This year we are stepping our uniform game up a little bit and ordering from a lacrosse specific company called Zima Gear. They make very high quality stuff. The sizing is a little different though as you will see. In the registration process you will see images of their shorts, jerseys, and shooting shirts and their different sizes. The best thing to do is to lay out some shorts and shirts that fit your boys now, measure them, and then compare them to the Zima sizing. For the reversible jersey I had my son’s try on their basketball jersey’s over their shoulder pads and then compared sizes. Below is how we are ordering for our boys for reference.
Cooper 12 yrs old 5’1″ 100lbs Youth Large
Austin 11 yrs old 4″10″ 90 lbs Youth Medium
Smith 7 yrs old 4’2″ 55lbs Youth Small
If your son will be playing another spring sport such as baseball or flag football, please email me separately at [email protected] and please tell me what they are playing and with which organization. It will help us to schedule practices a little better.
I know this was a ton of information. PLEASE don’t hesitate to call Jed Davis at 904-334-1260 or email [email protected] with any questions or problems registering.
When you are ready to register please go to our website www.jaxlax.org and you will see a registration link just below all of our sponsors.
Thanks for your interest in lacrosse and we hope to see you out there this spring!!!

Lax Goalie Rat – Lacrosse Goalie Tips, Drills, and Advice
I wasn’t always the Lax Goalie Rat. I actually started my lacrosse career as a middie.
But in fall ball my freshman year, our starting goalie tore his ACL and MCL in a gruesome injury – I still remember his horrible scream.
Suddenly our team was down to just one goalie.
When our coach asked me to give goalie a try, I thought how hard could be?
Spoiler alert – it’s hard!
I had all the common problems you see in beginner goalies:
- Scared of the ball
- Poor communication with the defense
- Flinching on the shot
- Slow reaction time
- No understanding of angles
- Nervous on the clears
Our team didn’t have a lacrosse goalie coach so I went searching for coaching materials online and at that time, nothing existed!
I finally found a lacrosse goalie coaching book and it had stick figures to demonstrate proper save technique:
Pretty clear, right?
So I attended live goalie camps…
And practiced and trained…
I studied all the top lacrosse goalies…
And practiced and trained some more!
And by my Senior year I was an All-American goalie and a team captain after knowing nothing about the position just 4 years earlier!
I’ve been through the transformation from a nervous beginner to a confident goalie and a leader of team.
And I want the same for you!
Lacrosse is my passion and I love coaching goalies!
I’ve now been coaching lacrosse goalies since 2003, have worked with hundreds of youth goalies at all levels and along side top professional keepers. I know what works!
If you’re serious about becoming a great goalie I’ve got the system that can transform you.

Cheap LAX Airport Parking. QuikPark, WallyPark from $6.95 /day. Lot E
I will park again if price is right, it was quick pick up and go. – Junhyun Song, parked at Hilton LAX Parking
I was surprised at how efficient Wally Park is. Personnel very courteous and helpful.
When it was time for pick-up, I noticed that the shuttles did not always stop at the pick up points. For us, it was difficult to get cell phone reception at the airport so we had difficulty reaching Wally Park to let them know where we were. It says the shuttles stop at all pick up points but that was not our experience. We were able to catch the 4th shuttle going by. They run very frequently, so we lucked out there! – J. HAMMOND, parked at WallyPark Premier Garage
All is good. The only comment I have is it is a bit confusing when you enter the parking lot. Maybe some signs will be helpful. – Ilan Chang, parked at Joe’s Airport Parking
Great job. Coming back again. – Kevin M Tyler, parked at WallyPark Premier Garage
Location is hard to find because signage was inadequate. Personnel helpful & friendly.
Printout needs to describe EXACTLY where driver will pick up arrivals (upper level – departures- look for sign that says PARKING LOT SHUTTLES – each terminal has one) otherwise there can be a lengthy delay. – Judith Stephan, parked at LAXParking.com
I was traveling solo, so safety and closeness to LAX was crucial. My return flight arrived at midnight so again the feeling of being safe was excellent. Couldn’t find my “PAID” documents. I had called from my destination to track it down. Vonda said “not to worry,” which I didn’t. Upon return, I mentioned her name, the manager came over and looked me up and showed that I had paid! All this at 1am in the morning. I did pay for Valet which was well worth the money spent! It made the ending to a wonderful trip very pleasant. Can’t wait to go somewhere again. I know where I will park and I will definitely tell family and friends. – J. Beech, parked at QuikPark LAX
Excellent service. Definitely would use this service again. – George, parked at LAX Parking Curb Express
Very convenient and minutes to Terminals. Waited 30 minutes to be picked up at Terminal, but that could have been because of our arrival time (11:30pm). Overall a great experience. Very friendly, we will use Sam’s Park again. – Bradley M Broadhead, parked at Sams Park
#1 Bullis Bulldogs:
The Bulldogs start the year as the top dog in the DMV. Bullis has been one the most consistent programs in the DMV for the last several years, winning multiple IAC Championships as well as a GEICO High School Lacrosse National Championship. During that stretch the Bulldogs have been led by dominant Attackmen such as Kylor Bellestri, Alex Trippi, and Robert Schain who all earned All-American honors during their time at Bullis. Additionally, the Bulldogs have had a pipeline of excellent faceoff men in Joe Stucky (Boston), Joe Stein (Duke) and Brian Wilmans (Colgate), which has allowed them to play a make it take it style of game. But this is not a normal year and without a clear superstar on offense or dominant FOGO, Bullis’s style and approach will be different this spring. Instead they have insane talent and no holes or weaknesses we could find.
In ‘21 it all starts between the pipes for the Bulldogs. Penn State bound senior netminder Jack Fracyon is one of the best goalies in the entire nation and commands a stable of freakishly athletic Ivy League bound defensemen in ‘22 Charlie Muller (Harvard), ‘21 Ethan Till (Penn) and ‘21 Tyler Kuehl (Penn). Adding to that excellent defensive group is SSDM stud Max Rietano, who will join Fracyon at Penn state next year. The biggest addition for the Bulldogs is Harvard bound senior attackmen Lucas Hilsenrath, who will join Senior Bucknell commit Connor Davis and Sophomore Malik Wood at attack, adding even more depth to an already potent offense that features a pair of Ivy League bound midfielders including Spencer Hughes (Brown), Kieran Anzelone (Brown).The player to keep an eye on for this squad is ‘22 Middie Tucker Wade. His explosive dodging and excellent stick work will make him hard to keep off the field.
#2 Georgetown Prep:
The Little Hoyas claim the number two spot in our DMVLAX Preseason Top 20 rankings for a few reasons, but…mainly because they have 11 committed Seniors, the top faceoff specialist in the DMV, and the strongest sophomore class in the DMV. With the extremely talented Sophomore class having less than one year of varsity experience, how do the ‘23 and ‘21 classes mesh? We expect sophomores Colin Burns to start on attack, joining Maryland bound Senior Zach Whittier, and Amherst bound Senior Dylan Hsu. At the midfield, the Little Hoyas are absolutely loaded. Prep’s stable of thoroughbred midfielders runs several lines deep and features Seniors Will Angrick (Notre Dame), Michael RIdgeway (Notre Dame), Hugh Mulane (Penn), and Quinn McBride (Navy) as well as three sophomore studs in Larry Horning, Tommy Aratta and Rafe Bradshaw. Defensively, Prep has tons of talent, but figuring out the right way to piece together the puzzle may take some time. Does Senior Lehigh commit Timmy Kirlin move down low to allow Sophomore sensation Mac Christmas to takeover as the primary LSM? Joining them on the defense end of the field with be Senior Brendan Falatko (NJIT) and Sophomore Isaiah Rose, who is our player to watch in 2021 for the Little Hoyas. The only question this extremely talented team faces is whether or not Junior Peter Flannery or Sophomore Jack Kask can step up and provide a strong presence in net for an IAC conference full of lethal shooters. If the goalie position is secured and plays well the Little Hoyas have a great shot at taking the IAC ‘Ship in 2021.
#3 St. John’s Cadets:
Coming in at the three spot in the DMVLAX Preseason Top 20 is the St. John’s Cadets. On paper, this St. John’s team has as much talent as anyone in the area. The only question that the Cadet’s face is how do you replace two Under-Armour All-Americans in current Georgetown attackmen TJ Haley and Harvard goalie George Alvarez? We expect Caleb Fyock, a wide framed, quick handed sophomore to take reigns as the Cadets starting goaltender. As for replacing Haley on the offensive board, the star studded ‘22 class will have to step up.
In that 22 class is TJ’s younger brother, Mac Haley, and Paul Garza, who are both committed to play at Navy. Garza will be joined at the midfield by a pair of junior Syracuse commits Vinny Trujillo, a lockdown two-way mid who is lethal in transition, and Luke Rhoa, who we expect to be one of the top midfielders in the area. Gavin Kelly will QB the attack, a Robert Morris commit. At the X, Air Force bound junior Blake Boyd should keep the Cadets competitive in a conference full of talented faceoff men. Defensively, St. John’s will be led by a pair of stud Junior defensemen who are committed to play collegiately at Lehigh and Rutgers respectfully in Richard Checko and Riley Figueras. Attack and overall depth might be an issue for the Cadets, but we expect St. John’s to make a strong run at the WCAC title and could finish #1 if they run the table in 2021.
#4 Gonzaga Purple Eagles:
The Purple Eagles of Eye Street have been the dominant force in the WCAC for well over a decade, and come in at number four in our preseason DMVLAX power rankings. With WCAC rivals like St. John’s, Paul VI, and DeMatha evening out the competition, what will it take for Gonzaga to get back on top? Gonzaga, like always, has a huge roster that is tremendously deep and full of talent, but questions remain at the specialty positions. There will be serious competition at the goalie position, as Gonzaga has two senior commits in Jack Twomey and Sean McCarthy and the best sophomore goalie in DMV in Declan Monahan. The faceoff dot will be the biggest question for the Purple Eagles in ‘21 as they lost Harvard faceoff man Andrew O’Berry to graduation. Does head coach Casey O’Neil have his defensive star, Michael Bath (Princeton), arguably the top defender in the nation in his class, take the draws, or does he have one of his middie athletic workhorses: Justin Ennis ‘21 (Michigan), Jack Norton ‘21 (Navy), Lief Hagerup (North Carolina) or Jack Leland, sophomore, take the responsibilities? If those two problems are solved, Gonzaga can play with anyone as their attack trio of Senior Luke Raymond (Villanova), Senior Johnny Stanton (UMASS), and Junior James Matan (North Carolina) might be the top attack in the DMV. Down low, watch out for Senior Finn Scanlon (Penn State) and Junior LSM Ryan Splain (Rutgers) to be takeaway machines and push the ball offensively for Gonzaga. A player to keep an eye out for is sophomore midfielder Jack Leland, an excellent 2-handed downhill dodger who is primed for a breakout season.
#5 Landon Bears:
The Bears have absolute studs at all key positions led by a quality senior class, enough to finish #1 in the DMV if they can score enough goals. The big question is whether or not they have the depth on offense to compete for an IAC title. The offense will revolve around both massive lefty attack starters and DMV stars in senior Graham Hertzberg (Michigan) and Junior Zak Ohlerking (Dartmouth), both top attackmen in their respective classes. Expect freshman phenom, Kevin Miller, to start on attack and become an instant contributor. Hertzberg is considered one of the top attackmen in the country by Inside Lacrosse and will be a nightmare matchup for opposing defenses. At the midfield, watch out for UPenn commit Stephen Bou, insta-star frosh Anthony Panetti, and the huge junior Cam Brown, to light things up. On the defensive side of the ball where Landon is loaded, watch for Jake Cohen, a freak athlete senior defensemen bound for Yale, who can match up with any attackmen in the DMV. Cullen Brown (Ohio State) could emerge as one of the very best poles in the DMV by season end. Other guys to keep an eye out for on the defensive end for the Bears are Jake’s younger brother, Will, a sophomore LSM with tremendous speed and one of the very best SSDM’s in the DMV, Chantz Harley, a senior who will play football at Villanova in the fall. He’s also a dominant force on faceoff wings where senior FOSO Nick Kopp (Amherst), has adapted quickly to the new SNG Faceoff rules and will be a major factor in the Bears success. Finally, one of Landon’s biggest strengths this year comes in the cage in Hunter Taylor, a Michigan bound Junior, who could be the top goalie in the 22 class in the DMV.
Overall, the Landon Bears elite senior class and leadership with a very deep defense gives them a chance to win every game this spring 2021!
It’s been close to twenty years since the great Paul Rabil donned the Stags uniform, leading DeMatha to three consecutive WCAC titles. Since then, the program has remained solid, but the WCAC has since been dominated by Gonzaga, and in recent years St. John’s and PVI have improved noticeably. 2021 might be the year that DeMatha returns to glory, as they have a squad that is stacked with Division 1 commits. The two players to watch any time DeMatha takes the field are Lehigh bound Senior midfielder Dakota Eirman and fellow Senior Jordan Galloway, a dominant LSM who will play collegiately at Rutgers. Adding to this strong Senior class is faceoff man Diego Markie, and three Stags who will all play collegiately together at UMBC in defensemen Dylan Hendrix, defensemen Ryan Morrison, and attackmen Jordan Galloway. An underclassmen who we expect to have a big year in 2021 is Myles Lancaster, a sophomore goalie, who has impressed every time we have seen play. This team is full of hard-nosed scrappers who will fight for every loose ball, and should give DeMatha a shot at making a run for a WCAC.
7: Paul VI
The Panthers are a team that could make some serious noise in 2021. Paul VI has the studs at all key positions, the athleticism, and the depth to win a first ever WCAC title. The two problems this team faces are lack of experience, as well as replacing 5 Star recruit and current Duke midfielder Charlie O’Connor. While their roster is loaded with ballers, PVI’s strongest classes are their sophomores and juniors, so missing the 2020 season may have a bigger impact on the Panthers than other teams in the area. The ‘22 class has a bevy of division commits in midfielders Zach Walsh (Rutgers) & Marco Signorelli (Maryland), defensemen Gavin Levay (Merrimack) and faceoff specialist Johnny Kidd (Lehigh). Their sophomore class is led by an absolute offensive weapon in Matt Han, and two stud defensemen in Parker Love and Nathan Murphy. Standing between the pipes for the Panthers is one of the best netminders in the area in Will Barnes who will play at Boston University next year. The player to watch for PVI this year is Junior attackmen and Vermont commit Carson Boyle, who recently transferred in and should make an immediate impact.
8: St. Stephen’s
The Saints are one of the more intriguing teams in the area to watch in the upcoming season. As always, St. Stephen’s touts a roster full of talent that will allow them to compete for a VA State Title as well as the IAC throne. The star of this team is lefty attackmen Will McCulloch, a 4-Star Loyola commit who operates as the quarterback and is a lights out shooter. Joining McCulloch at attack will be fellow Junior Witt Crawford, one of the top uncommitted players in the entire country, and a player we expect to have a breakout season in ‘21. Another guy who we expect to fill the stat sheet is Kris Huber, a Senior midfielder bound for Lafayette. The Saints’ other strength is their tremendously talented goalie, Jasper Simon. The defensive group for the Saints is excellent. Made up of a trio of senior defensemen in Will Matia (W &L), John Fontham (Middlebury), and recent transfer Baylor Hunt. Joining them will be another transfer in Junior LSM Wolfi Gottshalk, as well as a trio studs in junior midfielders Grayson Schmidt, a lock down SSDM, Will Aiken, a throwback swiss army knife, and Calum Wayer. The biggest question mark in ‘21 for St. Stephen’s is at the faceoff X and offensive scoring midfielders.
A month or two ago, Episcopal would have been ranked much higher in the DMVLAX Top 20; however, due to transfers and injuries, there are a few unknowns for the Maroon heading into the season. Caulley Deringer, 2023 stud lefty attack and Tyler Conklin, midfield, 2021 Loyola commit are both out for the season due to injury. After receiving news that star 2023 attackmen Nate Kabiri will be transferring after the year, questions were raised about eligibility; however, it now looks like the Maroon will have the lethal offensive weapon for the ’21 spring. One thing that won’t be in question, is their very strong senior class. The biggest strength for this squad will be their potent 1st midfield line, made up of senior Division 1 commits in Barrett White (Syracuse) and James Greene (Hobart) all of whom we expect to have excellent seasons and lead the way offensively for Episcopal. Look for Denison bound Senior Jack Hines to produce points for the team at attack. Adding to that strong senior class is bruising defensemen Lawson Laverty, an Amherst commit, who plays with a ton of grit. Another strength for Episcopal, will be at the X, as they have a workhorse in Junior faceoff-specialist Victor Salcedo, who is extremely athletic, plays excellent defense, and can create instant offense for the Maroon. Our biggest question for Episcopal heading into ‘21, is whether or not they have the strength at the goalie position in an IAC filled with powerful offenses.
While the program is still in its early years, Riverside has quickly become a powerhouse in the Virginia Public scene, winning a number of 4A State Titles, and producing one of the best attackmen in the college game today in current Maryland Terrapin Danny Maltz. They are once again the favorite to win the 4A State Title, as the Rams have a roster filled with studs on both sides of the ball. Defensively, 5-Star defender John Schroter might be the top pole in the entire state. Massive, athletic, and aggressive, Schroter is an elite takeaway defender who can match up with anyone in the state. On the other side of the ball, look for Seniors Carter Ash (Navy) and Nick Callis (Utah) to make up most of the offensive firepower. Additionally, Callis is one of the most dominant faceoff specialists in the area, allowing Riverside to play face paced and push transition opportunities. What we don’t know about this team; however, is just how good they truly are, as they have little competition at the 4A level.
11: St. Albans
St. Alban’s has always been one of the stronger programs in the DMV; however, playing in one of the toughest leagues in the country filled with national powerhouses has been a challenge for the Bulldogs. We except ‘21 to be a turning point for St. Albans’s, as this is the most talented and deep team that they have rostered in years. The most impactful player for the Bulldogs is sophomore LSM Pasha Hakimi, a rangey takeaway specialist who is lethal in transition. Fellow sophomore, Faceoff specialist Will Robert’s is one of the top ‘23 fogos in the DMV and should be able to hold his own for Bulldogs against the excellent group of Faceoff men in the IAC. Offensively, look for St. Alban’s to lean on Attackmen Junior Bob Gross and Senior Jason Lach (Bowdoin) to carry the load. The biggest question for the Bulldogs entering 2021, could this be the year they finally turn the corner and begin to compete for IAC Titles?
Robinson was the face of the sport in the Northern Virginia Public scene for the past decade or so, winning multiple state titles and producing a ton of D1 talent including Premier Lacrosse League superstar Jack Rowlett. The Rams come into the season facing two key losses to graduation in current Robert Morris Freshman attackmen Eric Swagerty, and freshman CNU Faceoff man Zach Sands. Despite the loss of Swagerty, the offensive unit of this Robinson squad will be their biggest strength, led by two stud Attackmen in Charlie Reynolds and Brett Jackson. Reynolds, a Junior Marquette commit, is a shifty, athletic righty with a strong dodging presence at X, while Jackson, who will join Sands at Christopher Newport next season, is a massive lefty sniper who can stretch the defense with his absolute cannon. Defensively, the guy to keep an eye on is ‘22 defensemen Will Maag, a well sized pole with excellent takeaway ability.
13: St. Andrews
St. Andrew’s has been a program on the rise in recent years, producing several elite Division 1 players, as well as winning a few MAC titles. As they seek to add another MAC title to the hardware collection, the biggest question for the Lions will be depth. Despite the questions at depth, this St. Andrew’s team is incredibly well balanced and has strong players at all key positions. Offensively, the Lions will be led by Denison bound Senior Liam Savage, a crafty right handed Attackmen with an excellent shot, as well as fellow Senior, Nykos Kyranos, an athletic midfielder who should contribute a lot of offense. St. Andrew’s biggest strengths are at the specialty positions, as they have two Senior studs at the goalie position and Faceoff X in netminder Jordan Ohpdal (Trinity) and Michael Crawford (Dickinson). Crawford has adapted quickly to the SNG rules and should be a huge factor for the Lions in ‘21.
For Chantilly, it all starts between the pipes, as they have best goalie in Northern Virginia in Senior Cameron Goodloe. Goodloe, a Michigan commit, was named MVP at both the MDLX Events VSLC and Nike Nationals, leading his team to a championship at both events. A goalie that talented has the ability to keep Chantilly in almost any game. That being said, you need a lot more than just one player to win a VHSL 6A state title. That being said, Goodloe isn’t the only stud on this squad. Defensively, the guy to keep an eye on is Junior Aidan Gobeira, a freakishly athletic 6’3 defensemen who plays with an uncanny motor. On the offensive end, watch out for Junior Ben Nyberg to be the biggest difference maker. Nyberg is an excellent dodger sweeping to his left and uses his incredible speed to push transition with ease. Chantilly’s biggest questions will primarily be at the Faceoff dot.
15: West Potomac
West Potomac is another program on the rise in recent years, dominating their District and becoming a contender for a VHSL 6A State Title. This Wolverines squad is as talented as they have ever had. The most impactful player for West Potomac is easily Junior George Stamos. No, not the actor. A physical, lockdown defender with incredible footwork who can match up with anyone in the state and will play collegiately for the Maryland Terrapins. The biggest question for West Potomac is replacing their offensive star in George’s brother, AJ, a freshman attackmen at VMI. Look for Junior Aidan Maclanahan, also bound for the VMI to fill the elder Stamos brother’s shoes on the offensive end. The attackmen who transferred this fall from Bishop Ireton, played with West Potomac at the MDLX events VSLC and was very impressive, showing off a variety of finishing abilities, and was one of the catalysts of the Wolverines run to the championship.
The Bulldogs are our top Maryland public primarily due to the fact they have a game changing attackmen in Junior Eliot Dubick, who will follow in his brother’s footsteps and play his college ball at Maryland. Dubick has a variety of ways of putting to hurt you, as he is an excellent dodger, outside shooter, and feeder. Look for fellow Junior attackmen Gavin Gummucio, as well as Junior midfielder Sam Bunten to carry the load on the offensive end of the field. On the other side of the ball, the guy to keep an eye on in ‘21 is Junior goalie Evan Shure who will be a major impact player for the Bulldogs. They also should be strong at the faceoff X as Junior Alex Chow has proven to be a potential breakout star for Churchill. While they have some studs, the question for Churchill is whether or not they have enough depth to make a run at a Maryland state Title.
While these rankings aren’t reflective of season’s past, it is duly noted that the Falcons are the reigning VHSL 6A State Champions. Entering the ‘21 season Madison’s biggest question is how do they replace a massive senior class that helped lead the way to the State Championship in 2019 including Joey Jorgensen, a freshmen defensemen at Merrimack. While replacing the senior class may lead to some bumps in the road at first, Madison is led by one of the best coaches in the Virginia Public scene in Aaron Solomon, who will surely have them in form come playoff time. The guy we’d recommend keeping an eye on is Senior Captain and two-way midfielder Brendan Wyka, who will join Jorgensen at Merrimack in the fall. Wyka is a throwback midfielder who can strap you up, take your cookies, and score easily in transition. The Warhawks are filled with studs in the ‘22 and ‘23 classes, primarily on the defensive end of the ball, who Coach Solomon will have to lean on heavily if Madison looks to repeat as 6A State Champs.
18: Good Counsel
The Falcons enter the season with one of the better squads they’ve had in years, and look to be one of the top teams in the DMV: they do compete in the WCAC, which is stacked with some of the top squads in the country. The guy you need to watch in ‘21 for Good Counsel is Junior St. Joe’s Commit Danny Gallagas, a speedy pole who is a groundball vacuum and excellent in transition. Joining him on the defensive end of the ball are a trio of Senior Division III commits in Shane Kirwan (Washington College), Gavin Gerard (Oberlin), and Mason Volley (Clarkson). Offensively, look for load of the scoring to fall onto the hands of a pair of Senior attackmen, Joshua Berry and Miles Pollack, who will play their college ball at Wesleyan and Rhodes respectfully. While the Falcons are well balance and have some talent across the board, the question entering the 2021 season is whether or not Good Counsel has the firepower to compete in a loaded WCAC.
19: Potomac School
We expect Potomac to fight for a MAC title and compete well in D1 private school Virginia state championships. Entering the ‘21 season, new Head Coach Matt Marriot inherits an incredibly deep roster filled with a few stars. With any coaching change, we expect there might be some bumps in the road early on as the style of play transitions, but watch out for the Panthers at the end of the season. The guy everyone will have their eyes on when watching this Potomac squad is Senior attackmen Alex Holmes, who will play his college ball at Cornell. Holmes was relatively unknown before 2020, but burst onto the scene as one of the best players in the area. 6’2 with excellent dodges, vision and quick feet, Holmes has the potential to take over games and be a superstar for the Panthers in the MAC. One of the biggest questions this upcoming season is who will make up for the rest of the scoring on the offensive end? We predict fellow Senior Attackmen Jay Gollob (RPI) to be the number two threat and fill up the net all spring.
20: Richard Montgomery
Rounding out the DMVLAX Preseason Top 20 is Maryland Public Richard Montgomery. While the Rockets are raw, they are full of athletes on both sides of the ball that we scouted throughout the summer and fall. That, coupled with the fact that Harvard bound attackmen Lucas Hilsenrath transferred out of Whitman, leaves Richard Montgomery in a prime position to compete with Churchill as the top MD public in the area and make a run at a state title. Replacing lockdown defensemen Harrison Oehler, who is a current freshman at Utah, will be the biggest challenge for the Rockets, but we expect Senior Vassar commit Kieran Chai-Onn to step in as the #1 cover guy. Offensively, expect Senior OWU commit Malik Sillah, younger brother of Towson star Mo Sillah, to lead the way. Joining Sillah as offensive leaders will be Senior Jared Scheinberg, a talented lefty attackmen, and Marcus Pedone, a shifty Junior midfielder with an excellent first step who is one of the better uncommitted juniors in the DMV.

Weak signal, loss of signal, or unstable signal on the wireless LAN.
Interference from radio telephones operating in the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz band may cause problems when using an 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, or 802.11n (WLAN) wireless network. These wireless standards use the same frequencies. Other wireless devices such as Bluetooth® devices, baby monitors, garage door openers, microwave ovens, or toys can cause interference. In addition, power lines and metal surfaces of doors or walls can also interfere.In these cases, connection problems such as pauses, interruptions, or other signs of an unstable wireless network connection may occur.
Some of the solutions for these problems are listed below:
- Move the wireless router or cordless telephone base station to a different location.
- Select a different Wi-Fi channel of the wireless router.
- Use a telephone with a reduced antenna length if available.
- Use a cordless telephone with a frequency other than 2.4 GHz.
- Limit the use of Bluetooth devices or turn off the Bluetooth adapter on your computer.
These problems can also occur if you are connected to an unsecured wireless network, or a guest network. When using a wireless connection, make sure you are connected to a secured Wi-Fi® network (indicated by a lock icon) in Wi-Fi settings.
- For information on changing the channel of your wireless router or access point, seeInstruction manual supplied with the device, or contact the manufacturer.
- Many 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz cordless phones use frequency hopping technology to operate. This technology uses the entire frequency range also used by wireless devices according to the standards 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n. Therefore, changing the channel of a wireless router does not always eliminate interference.
Set up a secure Wi-Fi network in 7 steps
We have repeatedly written about the dangers that await users of open wireless networks, but today I would like to talk about the threats specific to home Wi-Fi networks.Many wireless router owners do not consider these threats to be serious, but we will try to dispel this misconception. This guide is by no means exhaustive, but following a few simple steps can significantly improve your network’s security.
Tip 1. Change the administrator password
One of the most common mistakes is using the manufacturer’s default administrator password (most often something like “admin: admin” and the like “1234”).Combined with some non-critical remote vulnerability or open wireless network connection, this can give attackers complete control over the router. We highly recommend setting a secure password if you haven’t already.
Change administrator password
As illustrations, we provide screenshots of the TP-Link router configuration. Of course, in routers from other manufacturers, the menu looks different, but the general logic should be similar.
Tip 2. Prohibit remote control
The second problem is open access to the router control interface. Usually, manufacturers by default only allow the device to be administered from the local network, but this is not always the case. Be sure to check if the web interface is accessible from the Internet.
Disable remote administration
As a rule, to disable remote administration, you need to uncheck the corresponding box (in our case with a TP-Link router, enter address 0.0.0.0). It also makes sense to block access to the router from the global network via Telnet or SSH, if it supports these protocols. Experienced users can also restrict the control capabilities in the local network – by the hardware addresses of the devices (the so-called MAC addresses).
Tip 3. Disable Broadcast SSID
Typically, a wireless router tells everyone your Wi-Fi network identifier (SSID). If desired, this behavior can be changed by unchecking the corresponding checkbox in the settings.In this case, it will be more difficult for attackers to compromise the network, but when setting up a wireless connection, you will have to enter its name manually on each device. This step is optional.
Disable Broadcast SSID
Tip 4. We use strong encryption
Is it necessary to let everyone in the wireless network if you have unlimited Internet access at home? We categorically do not recommend doing this – among the “respectable freebie lovers” there may be one young hacker, and here there are threats typical for public hotspots: theft of account data of mail services and social networks, theft of bank card data, infecting home machines with viruses, and so on. Further.
Turn on WPA2 encryption
In addition, cybercriminals can use your network to commit fraudulent actions (the police will come to you). So your best bet is to turn on WPA2 encryption (WEP is not strong enough) and set a secure password for your Wi-Fi connection.
Tip 5: UPnP and All-All-All
Modern wireless routers can not only distribute Wi-Fi and provide local network nodes with Internet access – as a rule, they support a variety of protocols that automatically configure and interconnect connected smart devices.
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP), DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) support and the like are better off if you don’t use them – this way you are less likely to fall victim to another vulnerability found in software that uses these functions. In general, this is a universal rule: everything that is superfluous should be turned off. If you need something from the disabled, just turn it back on, it’s easy.
Tip 6. Update the firmware
Very often, the owners of routers do not monitor the release of fresh firmware for their devices.We recommend that you install the latest firmware versions downloaded from the manufacturers’ official websites – they fix errors and close various vulnerabilities that could allow attackers to compromise your network.
Updating the firmware
Instructions for updating the software are usually available on the corresponding tab of the router’s web interface. You will need to download the firmware image, make a backup copy of the configuration (sometimes the old file cannot be used with the new firmware, and then you will have to configure the router again), start the update process and restore the configuration after rebooting.
Updating the router’s firmware is the simplest and at the same time the most necessary step
You can use third-party firmware made by enthusiasts for your device (for example, OpenWRT), but this should be done with caution – there is no guarantee that the router will start normally after the update. In addition, software written by third-party developers should also be downloaded only from the official sites of well-known projects – in any case, do not trust products from incomprehensible sources.
Tip 7. Not just a
Absolutely reliable protection does not exist – this thesis has been proven by many years of practice. Proper configuration of the router, the use of strong passwords and encryption algorithms, as well as timely firmware updates significantly increase the security level of the wireless network, but do not provide a 100% guarantee against hacking.

– Eugene Kaspersky (@e_kaspersky_ru) September 4, 2014
You can protect yourself only in a comprehensive manner, so we recommend using modern firewalls and anti-virus programs with up-to-date databases of malware signatures on computers and mobile devices.For example, Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 allows you to check the security level of a wireless network and gives recommendations on how to change its settings.
90,000 Windows 7 or 10 for weak PCs?
Owners of computers of five years ago and older models are wondering what is better – to prefer the new “ten” or Windows 7 for weak PCs and work with a standard set of programs. Each option has its own characteristics, and the online store of licensed software SoftMonster offers to understand their advantages and disadvantages and choose the best option for personal requirements when buying.
Windows 7 or 10 – which modern users prefer
While some are thinking about buying a license for Windows 10, the owners of old, but still vigorous PCs remain loyal to the “Seven”. According to statistics collected by the StatCounter service, 39.4% of respondents are still working on Windows 7. Only 22% of respondents rated the top ten. Why is this happening:
- “Seven” is less demanding on the hardware. That is why if you are looking for a good operating system for a weak PC, Windows 7 is a good fit.Although there are drawbacks in such a time-tested system: it does not support modern drivers, which means that it will be difficult to upgrade the computer and select “worthy” peripherals for it.
- Windows 7 is not being updated. The advantage of this is that most users who work on older machines use lower versions of the licensed OS. For these editions, the standard current branch protocol is used, which automatically installs all released updates. This means that the user cannot refuse or postpone their installation, he has to adapt to work on the operating system, even if it starts to glitch.In fact, the manufacturer tests updates on the lower versions, and leaves for the higher versions what has shown itself from the best side. So, if you are not the owner of the “Professional” edition and above, the lack of an update is more a plus than a minus.
- Another factor is human psychology. Some users just like the “Seven”, some are already used to it and simply do not want to change to something else. Price matters a lot. Not everyone is chasing innovations, because their acquisition means replacing many elements in the usual work.Together with the “Ten” will have to get used to the new interface, and perhaps even change the hardware.
However, it is better to make a choice after familiarizing yourself with all the nuances. Let’s take a closer look at what people are guided by when choosing Windows 7 or 10 for weak PCs.
Benefits of Windows 7 for weak computers
- Stability . The first is the mentioned lack of updates. And secondly, the operating system is many times more resistant to problems caused by software incompatibility than the same Windows XP.
- Low resource intensity . Compared to previous Windows, the “Seven” is better tailored to work with weak computers. Manufacturers have made some of the background processes less resource-intensive, reduced the number of system services and thought over a lightweight interface.
- Working with old games and peripherals . If you are a fan of vintage gameplay, then Ten will disappoint you: even in compatibility mode, not everything will start. The same applies to old video cards, TV tuners, etc.
A nice bonus is that the “Seven” is more user-friendly than its predecessors. In it, you can configure not only the display style of panels, folders, desktop, but also the system welcome sound. The “ten” can only “greet” with the default sound greeting.
The desire to buy a licensed Windows 7 for an old PC seems obvious. This operating system was released earlier than the “Dozens” and is a contemporary of most computers, which, although they do not meet high technical requirements, are still on the move.Another way is to stick with a more recent version of Windows. This makes sense if your machine pulls its hardware installation, and you do not mind becoming the owner of a faster and safer system.
Windows 10 benefits for weak PCs
- Windows 10 has technical support. Since 2020, the “Seven” is not serviced free of charge by the manufacturer. If you have any problems with installation or use, you will have to look for an answer on the Internet or contact specialized services.
- “Ten” works with a variety of equipment. You can find “firewood” for it both for old processors and for new models, and this applies not only to components. Moreover, if you use common models of computer “equipment”, then the system will install drivers on them itself. In Windows 7, you will have to search for “firewood” for each item manually.
- Startup time has been reduced in Win10. It turns on faster and wakes up from sleep mode faster.
- Computers with a Ten are easier to upgrade.If you work correctly with the system, you can even replace the motherboard without reinstalling the OS. No earlier operating system from Microsoft can do this.
- Windows 10 supports multitasking. You can simultaneously work with documents, listen to music and surf the Internet without significant brakes, even on a weak PC. In “Seven” this is more difficult. The OS throws all resources on one task and connecting a new one causes great difficulties.
Whatever the fans of the “Seven” say, Windows 10 is also good for weak PCs.If you doubt that your device will be able to install it, please contact SoftMonster managers. Our experts will advise you on the best option, and if necessary, they will remotely help you with setting up the system.

How to adjust sound on LG TV – LG MAGAZINE Russia
Modern TVs of the LG brand have a very wide range of options and allow each user to customize the equipment “for himself”: to choose the optimal settings for sound, picture, channels, etc. And first and foremost, this applies specifically to sound, since depending on the preferences and tastes of the viewer, you can adapt the sound for watching movies, sports programs, listening to music or, conversely, news programs.
All LG TVs are equipped with Web OS, which makes operating options intuitive and straightforward. All you need to do to optimally adjust the sound on your TV is to activate the Smart Sound function. Here’s what you need to do for this:
- Press the Home button on the remote control (the “Home” icon).
- Select the menu item “Settings” (icon “Gear”, and then click on the icon of three vertical dots in the upper right corner of the monitor.
- Find the item “Sound”, and in it select “Sound Mode” – “Smart”. When this mode is activated, the TV will itself analyze the frequency indicators of the content being played and set the optimal soundtrack settings.
Please note that in this mode, all settings are set automatically, and while it is active, you will not be able to change the sound settings manually.
How to adjust the sound on the TV LG manually
You can change the automatic sound settings on the TV yourself.Manufacturers have provided several popular modes.
- Press the Home button on the remote control (Home icon).
- Select the “Settings” item in the menu (the “Gear” icon, and then click on the icon of three vertical dots in the right upper corner of the monitor.
- Find the “Sound” item, select “Sound Mode” in it and select one of the proposed in the mode menu to your liking:
- “Standard”: Suitable for all genres of programs and all types of soundtracks.
- “Cinema”: intended for films and series with special effects.
- “Sports / Football / Cricket” (the name of this item changes depending on the country): intended for viewing sports content of all kinds.
- Music: In this mode, you can listen to music of all genres, from classical concerts to modern music video channels and electronic music.
- Gaming: A mode specially designed for gaming, also suitable when using the TV as a monitor.
In addition to basic sound settings, you can also customize sound effects on modern LG TVs. They are also found in the Sound menu section.
- Select the Sound Effects item in the Sound menu (how to find it, see above).
- The Clear Voice II option will help to make your voice more intelligible.
- The Clear Surround option, as its name suggests, is capable of creating a multi-channel sound effect. It is only active in 2D mode.
When your LG TV is in 3D mode, you need the 3D Zoom option with the same features as Virtual Environment.
- The Equalizer option helps you manually adjust the sound by adjusting the frequencies.
- The Balance option is used to adjust the left and right TV speakers.
- The Reset option will reset all sound settings to factory defaults.
The presence of sound effects may differ depending on the LG TV.
Another convenient function is the audio volume adjustment. It’s no secret that on different digital channels the sound volume settings may differ. In order not to adjust the sound with the remote control each time, you can activate the “Auto volume” option. This can be done in the “Sound” menu (how to find it, see above).
It is also worth paying attention to the “Amount of volume increase” function. You can select the gradation “low”, “medium” or “high” and set the range in which you can turn up the TV volume as much as possible.
