The 2012 Texas Heat Elite team has been released!  It is comprised of Texas Heat’s top 10 players for each grade level regardless of position.  Many collegiate coaches come to us for information on talented Texas prospects and this list is the quick-reference guide that we circulate to much of the collegiate coaching community and major news outlets.  If you are on this list, please send your contact information (name, phone number, and email address) to so that we can help connect you with collegiate coaches.

There are a number of extremely talented players in Texas that were not included on the list but are undoubtedly deserving of recognition.   If you are a talented player who would like to be added to our recruiting database of promising Texas talent, please send us your – name, school, grade, position, phone number, and email address – and we will add you to our database.

This list was incredibly difficult to parse down but we ultimately chose those who we believed most consistently demonstrated their talents at a high level this season and show great promise for future success on the lacrosse field.  Heat Elite players are not listed in any particular order.

Congratulations to these players for their fantastic season!  Texas Heat Lacrosse is proud to have you all representing our state for this year and beyond!

    Great Article on the Texas Heat Elite, but what about Div II schools? A lot of good players in Div II. Maybe an article should be written about them.

    Did you forget about the guys that play “D” in the freshman class. How about Conner Mullen who started over half the season as St Marks goalie or Case Carpenter the all district LSM/D freshman at HP and Gage Bradshaw starting at close D for Plano West as a freshman.

    How is John o’grady on?

    My son in Div II (Keller) had 42 goals and 35 assists. In my book that makes him one of the best attack as a 10th grader in Texas.

    why is Shane Winter not on there? 3 All-State selections 1 All-District selection, t99 all star, committed to a d2 school and scored 7 goals for a defense man… goals on georgetown, reagan, and central catholic.

    TPate this is another PR poll – D2 players are ignored. Anyone who thinks this is a definitive list of the top 10 players in the state by grade is mistaken. Compare the D2 North All-State selections from the THSLL site against the names listed above. According to Texas Heat, none -not a single one – of the D2 players is more skilled than the players on their list. Seriously? We both know better…..
