It’s always a beautiful thing when stereotypes perpetuate themselves. That’s a quote, and I’m going to leave it at that because I don’t want to lose my job. But I think we can all agree that college lacrosse players have a pretttttttty pretty defined image when it comes to the general public’s view of them. You know the type — white, affluent, preppy, 1%, whatever. I don’t know, take 2009 legend Brantford Winstonworth, for instance.
Or Bert Breakfast, who consistently expects to win national championships despite consistently blacking out on Jager Bombs at upstairs Rhino.
Pickin’ up what I’m puttin’ down? Alright, good.
Well, Inside Lacrosse put out their 9th edition of their Lacrosse All-Name Team, and it safe to say that didn’t disappoint. And that’s coming from a dude named William Fritz deFries II.

This sounds like a “Who’s Who?” of a secret society at Yale where you have to kill a peasant in order to get in. Except for Sky Dupree, who just sounds like he would be the most dynamic athlete in a high school football movie.

Bear? Tripp? Griffin Wiidfinlevine? Are you kidding me? It’s almost like their parents read Town & Country’s Preppiest Nicknames, put them on a dart board, and used whatever name their scotch-soaked toss landed on.

The most upsetting thing about this entire list is that there are only three of these dudes with roman numerals. But I guess you’ve gotta imagine that their kids (and their kid’s kids) will make it on the list come 2056 and beyond. .
