NOTES FROM THE LEGENDS SOUTHWEST SPOTLIGHT

by Ty Xanders  (10/27/17)

Ajax Zappitello ’20, D, Sunset (Ore.)

The Portland native has already put together a strong few summers, making his way into Maverik Showtime, Adrenaline Black Card and the UA Underclass Games with the West. While undersized, he makes up for that deficiency by being an absolute pest around the ball, putting his stick in the passing lanes or attacking ball carrier’s hands. In addition, I loved what he was able to do in the clearing game, sending passes to teammates to start fast break situations or legging it up himself.
