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:

Thomas Flibotte, midfield, Bucknell( Bucknell Athletics / March 9, 2013 )
Flibotte was a state qualifier in wrestling and played running back for Cohasset (Mass.) High before a postgraduate year at Deerfield (Mass.) Academy. At 6 feet and 200 pounds, he is physically more developed than most other first-year players. Flibotte can rip it on the run and will shoot it off the bus, as evidenced by his six goals against Drexel on March 12, which tied a Bison freshman record.
