Michael Jaillet is a 2016 attack man out of Round Rock that put together another great season for the Dragons in 2015. He's a strong lefty that can bury the ball with time and room and understands how to shoot around defenders and off of screens. He's a comfortable ball carrier that is not afraid to lean in on his defender. Once he has created contact, he has the ability to free his hands for a shot or distribute the ball making those around him better. Jaillet's ceiling is tall and we look forward to watching him compete in his senior season.
Connor Laird is a 2017 goalie from Bowie in Austin, Texas. He had a tremendous freshman campaign in 2014 and followed it up showing tons of improvement through the 2015 season. Connor is blessed with quick hands and the ability to control rebounds well. He is a high energy keeper that commands the defense in front of him well and makes plays outside of the cage. One of his best attributes is his ability to drop dimes quickly after saves and spark transition. Laird sees the ball well and keeps solid positioning between the pipes making it tough for shooters from low angles. He possesses the intangibles to be an outstanding goalie and is always a joy to watch.
Carson Daspit is a 2018 LSM out of The Woodlands, Texas. Daspit is a spark plug that embodies toughness and tenacity. On ball, he is blessed with the feet to make it tough on any opposing would-be dodgers. Daspit does a great job coupling his footwork with the ability to tie up offensive players' hands and put the ball on the ground. His competitive excellence really shines through in tough g.b.'s between the boxes where he consistently outworks opponents to gobble up loose balls. While not huge in stature, he makes up with it in heart, physicality, and competitive spirit. He's a grinder and we love his game.
Tyler Wilkinson is a 2016 midfielder originally from Lake Travis and now playing in Bradenton, FL for the IMG Academy. Wilkinson is an athletic midfielder with a slick skill set. At first glance, there is no denying his big shot from the outside. Hard, accurate, and from a variety of release points makes him a deceptive shooter from distance that keeps goalies guessing. Wilkinson possesses great instincts and a cleverness that is hard to teach. His game has rounded out well since leaving Austin for IMG too. Tyler has become efficient at finishing inside, he has done a great job in taking pride in his defense, and the weight room has been a huge difference maker in his game.
