Syracuse Lacrosse Picks Up Commitment From Face-Off Specialist Max Parker

Drew Hallowell

The Syracuse lacrosse program hopefully solved its face-off issues Saturday, as a Class of 2014 recruit, Max Parker, made a commitment to play for the Orange. Unfortunately, SU will need to another full season until he puts on a SU uniform.

Patience is a virtue, or so they say, and for Syracuse Orange lacrosse fans their patience will seemingly be tested one more season as their team's face-off problems will not be solved this upcoming year but the next.

According to the Orlando Sentinel's Brendan Sonnone, face-off specialist Max Parker (Lake Highland Prep) has committed to be a member of Syracuse's 2014 recruiting class. The commitment is a big one considering Parker won 75-percent of his face-offs this Spring for the state champion Highlanders.

As the Daily Orange points out:

SU hasn’t had a player lead the team in faceoff wins and win at least 50 percent of his faceoffs since Danny Brennan won 214 in 2008. Midfielder Chris Daddio led Syracuse with 77 faceoff wins last season. He will likely reprise his role as the Orange’s top faceoff man in 2013, his senior season.

It is expected that soon-to-be senior midfielder Chris Daddio will relinquish his role has SU's face-off man. Unfortunately, Daddio wasn't dependable enough and his performance, along with Cal Paduda's and Brendan Conroy's, was one of the reasons why the Orange missed out on another National Championship.

Mr. Parker (is his middle name Peter? Please, let it be Peter) will have a lot riding on his shoulders when he puts on his Orange uniform for the first time. Until then, SU will need to solve its face-off X issues some other ways.
