This game could also be known as the John Fisher vs. Graham Stevens duel.
Both goalies, who led our 2024 standouts story, were flat-out amazing for their teams in the 2022 NLF Futures at IMG championship game. Fisher led Team 4 to the win and collected tournament MVP honors. If Team 7 had pulled it out, Stevens would have been the runaway pick for MVP. It was a battle of two of the class’ best goalies and neither disappointed.
They weren’t the only stars, though. Check out the highlights from the title game, courtesy of Mike Flanagan.
