Dylan Wolf has emerged as one of the top playmakers in the Baltimore-metro area. The versatile midfielder is solid at both ends of the field and has been a catalyst in the Fallston Cougars' four straight wins. As a junior and three-year varsity player, Wolf has already shown exceptional leadership skills and was named captain. He is undecided about where he will play lacrosse at the next level.
What areas did you want to improve as a player this season? Are you meeting those goals?
Dylan Wolf: Coming into this season, I wanted to improve on being a leader for my team and being more of a threat with the ball in my stick. I am slowly accomplishing these goals, but I still have some work to do when it comes to being a young leader. I have been more of a threat this season by drawing the long pole in many games and by receiving the quick slide when I am dodging.
As a captain of the team, are you a vocal leader or do you try to lead by example?
DW: As a captain, I see myself as both a person who is leading by example and also a vocal leader. I am a vocal leader by taking a bigger role in controlling the offense while I am in the game. Whenever we are down or someone made a bad play, I try to stay positive and motivate my teammates. I am also a leader by example by simply doing whatever coach tells me to do and by being an unselfish player who is not afraid to make the extra pass to a teammate.
What does Fallston have to do to get back to the state title game?
DW: In order to make it back to the state championship, we need to be more of a team and have trust in each other throughout the rest of the season. We need to listen and focus on what our coaches are teaching us and really take in what they are saying. Lastly, we need to just take one game at a time and only focus on the next game instead of the game a few weeks away.
Have you made any decisions as far as attending college and playing lacrosse?
DW: Currently, I have not made any decisions on where I will attend college. I do intend on playing lacrosse at the next level at a school that not only has a good lacrosse program but is also a good fit for me academically.
How much lacrosse do you play in the offseason, and how do you stay motivated?
DW: I play lacrosse a good amount in the offseason, because I like to make sure I am still improving my stick skills in order to be ready for the upcoming season. Competition helps me stay motivated to continuously improve as a player and as a teammate. Right now, my motivation is to get my team back to the state championship game and to send off the senior class the way that I want to go out.
