Here's something that no one saw coming in January: The top goal scorer in American high school lacrosse plays in Texas.

Hillcrest lacrosse attackman Trevor Atkins

Wait, the nation's most prolific attackman is a Texan? Believe it or not, according to the Dallas Morning News, he is.

In fact, Hillcrest (Texas) star Trevor Atkins proved to be a one-man wrecking crew for his school's first-ever state-title-winning lacrosse squad. Across 17 games (including his team's postseason run), Atkins scored an astounding 86 goals. Eighty-six. That's not to mention 22 assists, putting him far and away in the driver's seat to finish as the top-scoring lacrosse player in the country when all states conclude their playoff slate by early June.

Consider those stats again: 86 goals in 17 games. That's an average of more than five goals per game, a year after he scored 82 goals.

Perhaps most tellingly, he exploded when his team was under the most pressure. In the state-title game against Houston (Texas) Clear Lake High, Atkins scored seven goals en route to being named the tournament MVP.
