Quint Kessenich: Newcomers to watch in college lacrosse
The kids are better than all right.
In college lacrosse, freshmen have the opportunity to step right onto the stage and make an impact.
And across the board they are doing just that, from the best teams in the country (Notre Dame) to the worst (Michigan), from the most established (Johns Hopkins) to the newest (Marquette).
Keep an eye on these guys for the next four years:

The Pioneers have a roster brimming with sharpshooters. "Koerber (13, 1) has a great lacrosse IQ, which when you mix athletes from 20 states and two Canadian provinces, is much appreciated," coach Bill Tierney said. "He works as hard in practice as in games. He has a big body and is slick around the goal."
The Gilman grad can rip it from 12 yards or pump-fake you three times on the doorstep. Koerber has missed a chunk of time because of injury, however.
