Chazz Woodson and the Hampton Pirates landed a commitment in the 2022 class on Saturday, as Archbishop Curley, Md., attackman Caleb Haire.
Haire is the third commitment in the class for the Pirates and second from the state of Maryland, alongside McDonogh defenseman Myles Johnson.
Hampton being and HBCU and the future that could be with Chazz Woodson now at the helm of the Pirates’ were big factors into Haire’s decision. “As a young Black man, I am honored to attend a HBCU. I also share Coach Woodson’s vision.”
On film, Haire shows to be a versatile playmaker on the offensive end. He can operate from both the traditional attack and traditional midfield spots, making an impact as a dodger, feeder, and shooter. Additionally, Haire shows a good lacrosse IQ, knowing when to make the right cut or that extra pass that will lead to a goal.
Haire said that there isn’t really one area of his game that he wants to focus on improving, rather he really just wants to improve every aspect of his game, as well as improving his body. “I’d like to get stronger and work on my crease game, moves from X, and midfield concepts,” Haire said. “I want to be able to contribute anywhere on the offensive end.”
Coming into his junior season, Haire said that a personal goal of his is to tally 25 goals and 25 assists and make All-MIAA. Team-wise, he has one goal in mind: win an MIAA B Conference championship, which would be the Friars’ second in as many full seasons.
