Certain high school athletes are just playmakers.
It’s in their blood. It’s something that can’t be taught, they just instinctively know how to make plays that help their team win.
Ethan Krauss of Shawnee is one of those guys.
He had a solid career on the gridiron, racking up 766 yards receiving and five touchdowns as a senior last fall, helping the Renegades to a 6-5 record. He had 80-plus yards four times and finished his career with a 216-yard effort in a playoff loss against Hammonton.
But on the lacrosse field is where Krauss really shined. In three varsity seasons he compiled an almost unbelievable 180 goals and also had a school-record 137 assists. He’s the all-time leading scorer at Shawnee with 317 points, and as a senior there was only one game when he didn’t score multiple goals. The second-team All-State selection led Shawnee to an 18-3 record and a Group 3 state championship.
