Legend senior Caden Meis is a football player who excels on the lacrosse field.
He averaged 5.6 points, 3.6 ground balls and was the leading scorer among Class 5A lacrosse midfielders this season with 57 goals. In Douglas County League games he had a hat trick or better against every opponent and had a 4.6 average of goals per game.
Meis is the 2019 Colorado Community Media Boys Lacrosse Player of the Year.
“This year I went into not worrying about anything or putting anything on my shoulders,” said Meis. “I just went in having fun and giving it everything I got. I had a lot of fun. I feel I improved on a lot of things I worked on and I really think my confidence grew over time.
“A lot of goal scoring is your mental stability, your confidence and not worrying about missing the cage. You just have to take a chance and trust yourself.”
Legend coach Scott Quattromani watched as defenses attempted to contain Meis.
“He had a dominating season,” said Quattromani. “He’s a big, strong player. He always drew the opponents’ best defensive players. Despite these efforts, Caden completed the season as the leader among all 5A plays at any position in points. He is a genuine two-way midfielder, always electing to stay on the field for defensive runs and line up on the wings for face-offs.
“Although Caden had several offers from NCAA Division I lacrosse programs, he chose to attend Drake University on full scholarship for football (NCAA Division I FCS) as a running back in order to help his family with the financial burden of college.”
