Four Denver East Angels were named to Nike’s National All-Star teams for 2020. Andrew Tan (’21), Scott Bovard (’23), Evan Stockton (’23), and Robert Grawemeyer (’23) were selected as one of 23 players for the Mid-America 2021 (Commit) and 2023 (Next-Gen) teams via “blind tryouts” to compete in the inaugural National ALL STAR Games in Aberdeen, Maryland.
The National All-Star Games is a three-day boys lacrosse experience where the nation’s elite gather to compete. Teams represent 14 regions where each region fields one team in three age groups based on high school graduating class: The Commit Division (Class of 2021), Recruit Division (2022) and NextGen Division (2023).
“We are looking to reach across club and competition boundaries to attract the best high school players in the country,” said Ryan McClernan, founder and CEO of B’More Lax Co. “The National All-Star Games will provide an opportunity for even more players to experience national competition at its highest level. One of the best things about club lacrosse is that it’s a chance to play with the best players from different schools and conferences in your area. The National All-Star Games takes that to another level, playing with the elite of the elite players from your state and beyond. It’s a chance for the locally grown players to be nationally known.”
