2020 Rockhurst High School (MO)/Legends West – 2020 attackman Mason Vasta has committed to Air Force. Vasta committed to Air Force over Army, Marquette, Georgetown, and DIII power Salisbury. 

In going to play for the Falcons Vasta is following in his fathers footsteps. Mason Vasta’s father Joe played lacrosse for Air Force from 1983 to 1986 and set the NCAA all-time points record with 343 points (173G,170A). That record stood until Matt Danowski broke it in 2008 when he tallied 353 points (170G,180A) during his career at Duke. Joe Vasta is currently the 7th all-time leading points scorer in NCAA history. 

Mason Vasta is  great shooter and can put the ball in the back of the net from multiple spots on the field. He is good at getting himself open off-ball to create those catch and shoot opportunities from the outside. Vasta is also good at dodging and finishing either in traffic or on the crease. He can go to work in transition and can make those crisp passes as well. Vasta looks very similar to the prototypical Air Force attackman that we have seen in the past. 

With Vasta committed the Falcons now have 16 players committed in the 2020 recruiting class. Vasta joins a recruiting class at Air Force that is headlined by five 4-star caliber players, including attackman Tommy Marcoon.
