Lacrosse is quickly becoming a part of the Southeast sports scene and competing with established pastimes like baseball and football. No one in the state of Georgia has put his influence on the scene like Milton’s Will Stax. The Junior has committed to continue his career at the Air Force Academy and clearly has the work ethic to handle the rigorous environment a military academy presents. Stax has maintained a stellar 4.0 GPA while taking challenging courses.
In addition to his impressive exploits in the classroom, Stax has been making waves on the field. An impressive run in 2018, including wining the 2018 Naptown Challenge against the #1 ranked team in the country, led to Inside Lacrosse naming him as one of the Southeast’s best prospects. Stax’s speed has stood out to recruiters and opponents both and he believes it is a skill that makes him unique among his peers. His ability to combine pure speed with a high lacrosse IQ makes him virtually unstoppable. His background playing football, he is a 2018 state champion, gives him an added element of toughness that some do not possess.
Like any good athlete from Atlanta, his favorite professional athlete is the Falcons’ Julio Jones who he admires for his humble approach on the field. Stax also understands the importance of giving back to the community as he is the co-head coach of a middle school lacrosse team where he aims to continue the development of the sport he loves in the area he grew up in. After he completes his lacrosse career at Air Force, he dreams about becoming a pilot for a major airline so that he can travel across the world with his family. Will’s dedication in the classroom, community, and on the field give every indication that he will succeed in anything he does.
