You notice Lyght right away because he’s 6-3 and close to 200 pounds, and then you watch him play and see footwork and agility that mirror those of a much smaller guy. Because of that, it’s no surprise to hear that he’s a very good basketball player, too. Lyght did a nice job of matching feet with attackmen and keeping his stick on gloves. He can leave guys in his wake pretty quickly when he gets the ball in the open field, too. If he can add a little more snarl to his game, he could be a true No. 1 guy down the road.
Every time you look up, you notice Lyght. Part of that is because he cuts such a huge presence in the defensive half, with his rangy frame. But he’s also constantly attentive to the play, either defending on the ball or sliding. He’s got a heavy stick that is always in the hands and uses his physicality smartly, one tool in a vast arsenal.
.@NDlacrosse continues to load up on the defensive end with its third 4 ⭐️ defenseman this week as NLF No. 39 ‘23 Shawn Lyght (@SHPlacrosse) verbals. @LeadingEDGEHS standout is 6-3, 190 and very rangy. Excellent at Elite 120. Covers a ton of ground. https://t.co/fH6DGVzhIP pic.twitter.com/M1JIJe1r2T— NLF (@natlaxfed) September 30, 2021
