Today's lacrosse star, tomorrow's CW character

Posted on

Image Credit: Giovanni Rufino/The CWIt may not be as big as the Oscar nominations (or even the Razzies), but today’s unveiling of Inside Lacrosse Magazine‘s 2011 All-Name Team (which playfully compiles the most blue-blooded names of real-life college lacrosse players) will be closely analyzed by any TV writer who wants to get his pet project on The CW. After all, you can’t just stuff your hip new teen pilot with the same ol’ Liams, Clays, and Stefans. For mentally blocked writers, then, this list of the preppiest lacrosse-ey sounding names is a welcome cheat-sheet: You could fill up the network’s entire fall slate with the likes of Caldwell, Baxter, and oooooo … Brogan! That is the name of a Vampire Diaries recurring character if there ever was one. Check out the entire first-team after the jump:

FIRST TEAM

Caldwell Rohrbach Jr., Attack, St. Lawrence

Westy Hopkins Fr., Attack, Notre Dame

Harrison Archer Fr., Attack, Denver

Carleton Knisely Fr., Attack, Bucknell

Rustin Bryant Fr., Midfield, Maryland

Nils Thompson So., Midfield, Bryant

Braxton Deaver Fr., Midfield, Duke

Cullen Cassidy So., F/O, Hofstra

Draper Donley Fr., Defense, Dickinson

Baxter Lanius IV So., Defense, Lehigh

Brogan O’Connor Jr., Defense, Conn College

Trevel Tally Fr., Defense, Mercer

Brewster Knowlton Jr., Goalie, WNEC

There’s a women’s list as well, folks. Watch your back, Blair Waldorf.
