Jack Walshe Pronunciation

2024– “Jack is Back! The last few weeks of fall ball found Jack training without limitations. What a thrill to see him gliding up and down the field, playing this great game again. Jack has an extremely astute comprehension of both offense and defense, a by-product of his extensive basketball and lacrosse background. Jack puts himself in the right place within our team defense, takes care of the ball to ensure a successful clear and if a transition opportunity presents itself, he is a lethal decision-maker.” 2023 – “What a joy to see Jack return to the field with a full stride and no limitations with practice:  it has been a long road.  Jack plays the game with a conscientiousness for the one-more pass and executing the offensive gameplan as coached.  He is one of our best feeders, a combination of quick hands and anticipatory vision.  There is also a nurturing side of Jack that is exceptional:  often, Jack will step into our team huddle and remind the rest of us of tending to others and ourselves.” 2022 – “Emerging late this Fall from injury, Jack is showing us his trademark vision off the dodge… Brings heat shooting with both hands… Superior stick work… Good decision-maker… The rest of us are all excited for Jack to be back on the field, making his statement.” 2021 – “What a testament to high-quality skill development … has been well-coached on Long Island, and obviously was open to learning and implementing … very qualified to survey the field as a dodger and make great decisions.”
