Latrell Harris Player Profile – From High School Straight to NLL

Latrell Harris was selected No. 12 overall by the Toronto Rock in the second round of the 2016 NLL Draft at the age of 18. He took his talents directly from public school to the professional stage. Now 22, Harris has been among the professional ranks for multiple years and established himself within the NLL. This is his player profile.

Latrell Harris Player Profile

Born in St. Catharines, Ontario, Latrell Harris played his junior lacrosse with the St. Catharines Athletics, playing with the program for four years, racking up 13 goals and 29 assists for 42 points. He didn’t spend his entire high school career in his hometown, though.

For his junior year, Harris left Canada and moved to Colorado for the year, attending Mountain Vista High School in Highlands Ranch to help get looks for a college lacrosse career. He stayed with a friend’s family and built his recruiting profile, aiming for a scholarship.

Harris originally committed to High Point, but it didn’t end up working out. Without a scholarship and fearing his lacrosse dream had come to an end as a result, the player searched for another path. He found Everest Academy, a lacrosse prep school in Vaughn, Ontario, and began his rebirth as a lacrosse player.

He entered his name into the 2016 NLL Draft to see what would happen, and the Rock gave him a shot. From there, Latrell Harris was named to the 2017 NLL All-Rookie Team with seven goals and six assists for 13 points in 18 games. He followed up his breakthrough rookie campaign with a positive sophomore showing, posting six goals and seven assists for 13 points in 18 games again in 2018. In his NLL career, the player has scored 16 goals and put up 36 points in 55 appearances, plus two assists in five postseason games to add to the Latrell Harris player profile.
