Micheal Cirrone 2014 Patriot Elite Green

A combination of quickness and stick skills makes Mike Cirrone an especially effective defenseman when it comes to a couple of key aspects of the game.

The rising senior at Ward Melville High School (NY) is known for his takeaway checks and his outstanding clearing ability.

It’s those attributes that attracted attention from Division I programs. This past weekend, Cirrone decided on a destination, giving a verbal commitment to the newly launched program at the University of Richmond, a decision first reported by Joe Lombardi on LaxLessons.com’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section.

The 6-foot, 170-pound Cirrone, a lefty, just returned from Maryland where he played on the Long Island team at the Under Armour Underclass Showcase. He was also a member of the Suffolk team at the Long Island Showcase each of the last three years, and was an LI Laxfest all-star in both 2013 and ’14 and Nike Blue Chip all-star in 2013.

Cirrone is also a varsity hockey standout for Ward Melville.

Now, here’s a Q&A with Mike on his commitment.

What were the main factors in your decision?
The coaching staff and the great academics.

When I first stepped on campus, the coaching staff immediately made me feel at home.

The school has so much to offer and has great academic programs in order to set you up for success in life after college.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I was talking to Yale, Towson, Marist and St. Joseph’s.  I only had a chance to visit Richmond.

What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
I would say my strengths as a player are my quickness and my stick skills. I would describe my style of play as aggressive who tries to create a turnover and push the ball down the field.

What area of your game do you need to work on?
Areas of my game I always want to focus on improving are my stick skills and athleticism. The area I want to improve the most right now is my off-ball defense and communication.

How did you get introduced to lacrosse?
I was introduced to lacrosse by my best friend’s dad, Rich Bucaro (father of Georgetown-bound attackman Dan Bucaro) in kindergarten.

What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in?
I play on Patriot Elite Green which is through Ward Melville. This summer I participated in the Long Island Showcase for Team Suffolk, the all-star game at the Long Island Laxfest, and the Under Armour Underclass Games for team Long Island.

Any final thoughts?
I would like to thank my parents and family for always supporting me. I would like to thank my coaches in my younger years: coaches Bucaro, McGinley, McCulloch and Swift.

I would especially like to thank my (Ward Melville) coaches for the last five years Coach (Jay) Negus and Coach (Chris) Muscarella.

They have all made me the lacrosse player I am today.

Kevin Warne's Gtown Hoya's get a Stud!
by posted 10/01/2013
 

Congratulations Daniel Bucaro, Patriot Elite Green
,It was a breakout season for both Ward Melville and Daniel Bucaro.

The Patriots finished 22-0 in winning their New York Class A state championship – their first state crown since 2000 – and finished as the consensus No. 1 team in the various national rankings.

Bucaro, meanwhile, in his first year as a starter, finished his sophomore year with 57 goals and 30 assists, including four goals in the 12-3 Long Island Championship win over Massapequa.

But clearly, the best is yet to come for the 6-foot-3 attackman.
Earlier today, he decided where he would spend his college years following two more varsity seasons with the Patriots.

Bucaro, regarded as one of the leading players nationally in the Class of 2015, verbally committed to Georgetown University, a commitment that was first reported when it was made earlier today by Joe Lombardi on LaxLessons.com’s “Lacrosse Insider” section.

“This is a huge pickup for Hoya program and Kevin Warne, who finished his first season as Gtown coach and who’s been working the summer circuit hard,” Tweeted Joe in breaking the news.
Bucaro has a combination of outstanding size, shooting ability and stick skills. He’s also an excellent dodger and effective feeder.

Now, here’s a Q&A with Daniel on his commitment.

What were the main factors in your decision?
The academics at Georgetown, and the students/players at the school and the coaches are fantastic. I also love the city there.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
Harvard, Duke, Cornell, Virginia, Princeton and Brown.

What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
My dodging, scoring and feeding ability. I’m a team-first kind of guy.

What are your thoughts on this past season at Ward Melville both as a team and for you individually, stepping in and taking on such a big role on the undefeated national champions?
This year was a great learning experience for me. My teammates taught me so much and showed me how to be a great leader. I did what the team needed me to be and that was to be a threat. It was the best year of my life so far.

How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
My dad actually brought me into the game. Coach McCullouch, Coach McGinley and Coach Swift always help me with my game. I play ice hockey in the fall.

What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in?
I play for the Patriot Elite Green team. I went the Philly showcase, blue chip 205, and Long Island showcase.

Any final thoughts?
I want to thank all of my teammates, coaches, and family members for all the support.

Cornell Bound
by posted 08/02/2013
 

Congratulations Jake McCulloch, Patriot Elite Green
The 2013 varsity season was a baptism under fire for Jake McCulloch. And he answered the call.

Jake McCulloch earned a starting spot on a midfield line that included two of the tristate region’s Class of 2013 standouts: Duke-bound Jack Bruckner and Rutgers-bound Christian Mazzone.

Together, the trio were a big reason Ward Melville won its first New York State title since 2000 and finished the season unbeaten, and the consensus No. 1-ranked team in the nation.

Now, McCulloch is the final member of the middie line to decide his college fate, verballing to the admission process at Cornell University, a major commitment first reported when it was made by Joe Lombardi on LaxLessons.com’s “Lacrosse Insider” section.

The Patriots already have a rising junior bound for the Big Red in defenseman Tom Reilly, who was WM’s first 2015 commit when he verballed in late June.

A versatile middie, McCulloch, who also has a nice scoring touch, is also effective at attack. The 5-foot-9, 155-pound lefty has a nose for the net and a high lacrosse IQ.

McCulloch is coming off a strong summer in which he performed well and made the all-star games at several major events, including the Maverik Showtime National Recruiting Spotlight.

Now, here’s a Q&A with Jake on his commitment.

What were the main factors in your decision? Obviously the academics played a huge role in my decision and I know I will be getting a great education. I also really liked the “college town” feel that Ithaca had. The overall success that the program has had was also important to me. Lastly, I felt very comfortable with the coaches and the campus.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit? I was considering Yale, Penn, Harvard, Brown, Colgate, Providence, Villanova and Fairfield. I got a chance to visit all of those schools besides Brown.

What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play? I would describe my style of play is smart but fast-paced. My greatest strength is my overall lacrosse IQ. I am very versatile being able to play middie and attack and can dodge from anywhere on the field.

What area of your game do you need to work on? I need to work on my foot speed and outside shot. I also need to work on being a stronger leader.

How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played? I was introduced to lacrosse through my father, Dave McCulloch, who was an All-American at Hofstra and played professionally for the New York Saints. I have had a stick in my hand for as long as I can remember. I also play football.

What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in? I played for Patriot Elite during the summer and participated in the Long Island Showcase Suffolk vs. Nassau game, LI LaxFest, Gait Cup, Tristate, Long Island Classic and Maverik Showtime, where I was selected to play in the all-star game.

Any final thoughts? I want to thank my high school coaches Jay Negus, Chris Muscarella and Mike Hoppey for helping me improve immensely this year and helping me through the recruiting process. I would like to thank my father for introducing me to the game and teaching me pretty much everything I know. Lastly, I would also like to thank my linemates Jack Bruckner and Christian Mazzone for helping me mature and improve as a player.
