“Doxie is another 3d Rising Hard Hat Award at this event. The small but gritty, relentless and skilled Silver Warriors product was one of the most consistently impactful of any midfielder we watched over the course of the weekend. He’s a magnet to ground balls, playing very low by nature but smart once he gets the ball to protect it and runs to safe paths as he clears. He can get through a pack of riding middies to get to safety. He is quick and played tough on-ball defense and very quickly capitalized on miscues like a bad exchange leading to a groundball. He can beat people to it and explode up the field. He is much more of an offensive threat than he’s let on the last year or so with SweetLax. He showed that at FLG in 3d, scoring on a hard alley dodge against the powerful IMG Academy squad. Doxie has tremendous upside as he will continue to play high level scholastic ball for the next two years at Niskayuna.”
