There’s no denying Koopman’s ridiculous offensive skills with a pole in his hands. He’s a threat to score from anywhere inside the restraining line with a combination of exceptional hands, a hard shot and the dodging ability of a short-stick. You better account for him in the middle of the field when your team has the ball, too, because he’s very aggressive and willing to take a chance to take the ball away. He’s undersized for the position and could stand to polish up his defensive game at times, but he’s a bonafide playmaker and havoc creator.

Koopman has been playing up against 2021s and 2022s for quite some time now, yet that doesn’t seem to have much of an impact on his ability to make an impact all over the field. He can make plays everywhere, whether it’s ripping the ball away from an opponent, outhustling everyone in the transition game or finishing offensively. Every inch of space that you get against Koopman is very well-earned, and he does a terrific job of throwing precise checks to make his man uncomfortable.
.@UNCMensLacrosse continues its recent roll with the addition of @natlaxfed No. 45 ‘23 Brett Koopman (Santa Fe Christian, Calif.).@MadDogLax LSM is a difference-maker in the middle of the field. Great handle and tons of tenacity and aggressiveness.https://t.co/OmvS7kn28k pic.twitter.com/BZFwXOhW2O— Matt Chandik (@MChandik26) October 21, 2021
