The 2021 high school boys lacrosse season gets underway this week for teams across the state. After last year’s canceled season — in what was supposed to be lacrosse’s first as a sanctioned UHSAA sport — the anticipation for the 2021 season is sky high.

To prepare fans for the upcoming season, the Deseret News has put together capsules for every team in 6A. Every coach was invited to participate and submit information.

The region rankings are based on coaches’ preseason projections.

Here are the 6A teams and players to watch this upcoming season.

Coach comment

“I am just excited to be able to have a season. Last year was a big letdown for the players who had worked so hard for everything to come to a grinding halt. The boys are poised to make a run and the team chemistry is starting to come together nicely. We currently have four commits on the team and hope to add more this summer and come Sept. 1, add a few more 2023 commits to the list. We have great alumni support from players and parents over the last few years and the program is built on their shoulders. It has been great to have guys like Kyle Hartzell, Chase Caruso, Josh Stout, Elias Fairman, Bubba Fairman, Garrett Michaeli, and Zack Franckowiak working with the boys to help them in any way they can.”

“Lone Peak lacrosse has reloaded and is excited to finally be taking the field for the 2021 lacrosse season! We are an extremely solid and well-rounded team. We are anchored on defense with long pole Luke Tucker who is a University of Utah football commit and was an all-state player in 2019. He is joined by long pole Max Ramey who is a formidable defensive workhorse. Max Thomas is our faceoff specialist and midfielder who has years of experience and has proven in past seasons that he can win the ball. Our attack will be led by Garrett Haws who moved to Lone Peak last year with his family from Texas. Garrett makes scoring look easy. He will be an all-state player this year and has committed to play lacrosse for Ohio State University.”
