The 10th annual Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Game is gearing up for another event set to take place on July 3 at Towson University’s Johnny Unitas Stadium.
The "best-of-the-best" high school lacrosse players, 88 of them in all, will earn the sport's most prestigious honor as an Under Armour All-American. The University of Maryland will be represented by three men and five women in the two evening games.
Today we begin a series profiling the future Terps competing next month.
Maryland made an epic run to the National Championship game last month, coming up just short against Denver in Philadelphia. With the loss of a couple scorers, Head Coach John Tillman will clearly need to add more offensive firepower to next year’s team. With that said, he may have what he’s looking for in Winston Churchill High School product Louis Dubick.
Dubick was a scoring machine from the attack position for Coach Jeff Fritz, leading the Patriots to a 17-2 record with 55 goals, 77 assists and 58 ground balls. He holds the Maryland State record for career points (496), goals (244) and assists (252). Dubick was twice named Montgomery County Gazette’s ‘Player of the Year’. In addition, he was a four-time All-Gazette, All-Met and All Montgomery County selection.
“I can’t take all of the credit for my scoring numbers,” said Dubick. “I had great teammates and coaches who put me in the right position to make the plays. I do have good vision and can separate myself from the defenders.”
Dubick's niche is his quickness and the ability to get off of his man.
“I do see the field really well and it helps coming from behind the cage to get an open look,” he said.
Strong bloodlines in the game also play a part in Dubick’s success. His father, Marc, was a part-time player for the Terps, graduating in 1983. Plus, his grandfather, Harry, was a defensive end recruited to play football in College Park in 1954 but soon realized he was better suited to wrestle and play lacrosse instead of the gridiron.
“Yeah, I’ve seen pictures of my dad and grandfather, who passed away last year, play and my dad tells me how good he really was,” he said.
Off of the lacrosse field, Dubick helped lead his team to the Maryland State Golf Championship as well.
“Actually I was the captain of the team, but I wasn’t one of the top four to play in the state championship meet,” he said. “I played a lot of golf as a youth and finished second in the state one year. I’m an eight handicap and that’s just okay at this level.”
He has an interest in government and represented his senior class as Vice President. Dubick plans to major in business at Maryland.
“I want to get into marketing or accounting, but I’m not sure right now,” he said.
Dubick picked the Terps over North Carolina and Johns Hopkins.
