     Title: Inside Lacrosse Clam Face-off Notables
The 2010 Inside Lacrosse Face-off Magazine once again displays its share of Clam Alumni

I remember when I was younger, (all the way through college in fact) I always awaited eagerly the publication of the Face-off magazine. When I was a youth player, it was all about reading about the best players, many of whom coached me at camps I went to. In high school, it was to see the names of players I'd played with at the various recruiting camps I attended. In college, it was to see my name.

And now, into my adulthood, I'm still a little like a kid when the new issue comes out. I go through the book from cover to cover and look for names of players I've coached. Perhaps it's me living a little vicariously, but I can't help but take a little pride with each former and current Clam that receives recognition. 

Anyway, I took the time to seek out all former Clams who got a mention. And getting "a mention" means not that you're on that team or that you might play here or there, but that you'll be looked upon to be at least a significant contributor. I was excited, and to be honest a little flattered, to see just how many Clam Alumni are forecast to make their mark this spring at the country's top programs.

While all D1 programs are listed, only the Top 10 D2's and the Top 20 D3's are listed (which in my opinion unnecessarily shortchanges those divisions, but now is not time for me to hop on my soapbox).

Please see below for acknowlegdement of every Clam who got a mention (split by both division, and grade)*:

*apologies to whoever I might have missed - I'm sure there's someone; also some of the info listed below is not in the book but I just know (such as Captains) - again, apologies to those I've shortchanged on credit...
