9 Jake Caputo
2022 U.S. Men's U21 Team|
Lacrosse is in Jake Caputo's blood.
His father, Ron, is a longtime coach at Duke. His brother, Owen, also plays at Duke and his sister, Sam, plays at East Carolina. All of that knowledge has helped make him a key member of this U.S. U21 team.
With three years of experience playing defensive midfield at the NCAA Division I level, Caputo brings key experience to the U.S. team on the international stage. He also has the skills to put the ball in the net and that versatility will be important as the U.S. chases gold.
