STX Rising Fall DIII Showcase Standouts 2017

Vernon Cowell, Midfield, Oregon Episcopal School (Ore.)/3d Oregon, 2019

Cowell is very athletic and a smart lacrosse player with potential to excel at the college level, potentially even the Division I level. His speed makes him dangerous off the dodge. He initiates contact and showed good accuracy and speed when scoring. His vision and game sense makes him even tougher to handle. He dodges with his head up and will hit the roll man when open. Cowell consistently shot the ball well, with power and accuracy and snap, and demonstrated a variety of shots including the leaner style shot famous by John Grant Jr. in which he looked low and snapped one high into the back of the net. There were times he took over the games on the offensive end, using incredible shake to easily get his hands free for a big full windup that had defenses on the back of their heels. He was without question among the most impressive athletes at the camp.

Vernon Cowell, Midfield, Oregon Episcopal (Ore.)/3d Oregon, 2019

Cowell is a workingman’s midfielder – hard working, stamina and a willingness to keep going after the ball and to the cage. He can dodge hard downhill and, though still a bit raw with the stick, can break down a defender with his big strides and strong legs and he has a rumbling sort of approach to dodging when he gets going downhill. He has potential to make a big impact as he develops more skill to go with his athleticism and growing field sense.
