Tomorrow, Saturday June 7th, we will kick off the 2014 ADRLN All-American Game down in Mission Viejo, CA.
ADRLN is hosting what is called the The Stars and Stripes Festival, a youth through high school event, which has each team playing a total of three games leading up to the Adrenaline All-American game. Fans from will have the opportunity to watch the top 60 seniors from the western United States, and one from Canada, compete before their eyes in a full length North vs. South all-star game. The game can be watched steaming on YouTube, and here, during and after the event.
Each of these players has committed to play NCAA lacrosse next year with many of the athletes going to top Division I programs.
Combined, the two rosters are composed of 53 NCAA D1 players and 4 NCAA D2 & D3 players.
We are very proud of this event. It feels great to be able to provide a setting that combines the best players in the game at the professional and high school level for fans to enjoy. For the western United States this is the most significant event of the year and a true tribute to Western lacrosse and the players and coaches that make it so great. We are very thankful for all the sponsors who have rallied around and shared our vision for this type of event” says Alex Cade, President and CMO of Adrenaline.
The Adrenaline All-American game has etched itself as the pinnacle in the careers of the best western High School lacrosse players. The game is the perfect celebration of the illustrious success of these young men, who are all heading off to play at the collegiate level.
