Florida Kids Playing Men’s D1 Lacrosse This Year

Written on . Posted in , , , , .

My annual ritual of looking through all the D1 rosters to come up with the complete list of all the Florida kids playing in 2023.

As usual, I would be glad to accept help for the Women’s list, since there are far more D1 Women’s programs to find.

This year, I have grouped them by Conference to make it easier to locate a player. There were transfers off last year’s rosters, as well as some players that opted to not play this season.

Summary:

95 players, of which 80 were Florida high school players, 21 total freshmen, of which 2 are not Florida grads.
