Reader’s Choice: Adrenaline Performance Of The Week (Winner Picked)

Jakimo was on point on Saturday against Midd.


Congrats to Patrick Vaughan for his nomination of Ryan Young.  Young led Maryland to an ACC Championship, put up points when they were needed most, and did it all one week after losing his mother to cancer.  Great nomination, PV and an inspired weekend of lacrosse from Young.

Send an email to with your mailing address and we’ll get the socks out to you shortly!  Congrats, thanks for playing, and start thinking about next week!


Think back about all the performances you witnessed over the weekend – a team winning a big game, an individual player having a HUGE day, or a coach winning an historic game – and nominate them in the comments section as your Adrenaline Performance Of The Week. Make sure to tell us WHY you picked them! It can be a HS, college or even Pro player, team or coach.  Or mascot.

The LAS Reader with the winning comment gets a free pair of GREY Adrenaline Rasta Socks that you can’t buy in stores. You have to know people to get these… and you know us!

Here’s an example of what a nomination might look like:

I’m nominating Sam Jakimo of Amherst COllege (NCAA Div 3)  for his performance against Wesleyan.  Jakimo made 18 saves in a 4-2 win to secure Amherst’s first win over Wesleyan since 1999.  He held Wesleyan scoreless for the final 55 minutes of the game and the win also secured Amherst’s first outright Little Three Championship in over a decade.

These could be yours!


  1. MountIda Collge (DIII) Goalie James MacAllistar shutting down a point blank game tier in the fourth quarter against becker. kid stood on his head all game to hold mount idas home field advantage and #1 seed in the innagural season of the GNAC.

  2. I nominate Ryan Young of the Maryland Terrapins for the performance of the week. Playing away at Duke, and battling from behind until the 3rd quarter, Ryan Young scored the go ahead goal late in the game to give the Terps the strength they needed to put Duke down 11-9. As a side note, Young’s brother plays for Duke, and they both lost their mom to cancer last week. Both of these players showed tremendous strength by being out on the field supporting their teammates when it was needed, and now their teams will be supporting them when they need it. And that’s how its supposed to be folks.

  3. I nominate Mike Huffner, of the Bucknell Bison for his game against Colgate in Hamilton, N.Y on Saturday night. Huffner, a sophomore defenseman, drew the assignment of marking 31-goal scorer Peter Baum, the nation’s fifth-leading goal-scorer, and Huffner had two caused turnovers while holding the Tewaaraton Trophy finalist without a goal. The 12-7 win gives them a first place seed and right to host the Patriot League Tournament this week.

    My vote does go to the Young Brothers for their game on Sunday though.

  4. While Ryan Young definitely deserves some praise for his great play in the midst of tragedy, my vote this week goes to Dean Gibbons, a senior attackman at Harvard. Gibbons’ 3 goals and 3 assists led Harvad to a big Ivy League win over Princeton and kept Harvard’s playoff hopes alive as the Crimson can make the Ivy League tournament with a win in their final game against Yale. Gibbons has quietly been leading Harvard all year, scoring 25 goals and passing 23 assists for a team best 48 points.

  5. I am nominateing jay card the tewaaraton award nominie of hofstra pride, card led pride in goals this game with 4 goals and 1 assist tallying up 5 points for hofstras win card also boosted His consecutive Game point and goal streaks to 41 and 14 thats why i nominated jay card GO PRIDE

  6. i nominate coach dave and coach nick of the seahawks for leading our team to our first win. we practiced hard all week and they taught us new plays that definatley contributed to our victory. they took time out of their schedule to make us better, and i thank them.

  7. I’d like to nominate our U13 Coach Greg Hanak. We are a fairly new and growing organization and he and his wife give a 110% of their time and energy to helping our program grow through coaching, being members of our board, and working with the kids even in their free time. He is everything a coach should be and more to our kids!
