Southern California High School Boys Lacrosse Recruiting: San Clemente Boys Lacrosse Middie Bennett Jonas Commits To Play For Ohio State
San Clemente High’s Bennett Jonas is on his way to a big first for the Tritons. A junior this year, he’s a productive member of the varsity football team, and an elite area player when lacrosse season hits come spring. And his talents in lacrosse are taking him where no other local kid has ever gone before—playing the sport on full-ride scholarship for a Division 1 school.
On October 29, Jonas gave a verbal commitment to play lacrosse at Ohio State University under head coach Nick Myers. The Buckeyes were one of several top collegiate programs—including Denver, Syracuse, Stony Brook, Bucknell, Notre Dame, Cornell and Virginia—that had been courting Jonas for the last year.
“It really came down to Ohio State and Syracuse for me,” Jonas said. “I committed early because most lacrosse programs fill their rosters by the end of a player’s junior year, and Ohio State is where I want to be at that next level.
“I’m 100 percent with my commitment to the Buckeyes,” he said. “I don’t think anyone else will sway me from Ohio State.”
Jonas, a midfielder, says he’s not being recruited to play any other sports, save for the occasional letter that taps his interest in playing football in college.
“I have no real interest in playing football at the next level,” he said. “I have every intention of signing my letter of intent to play lacrosse for Ohio State when I’m allowed to do so at the end of my junior year.”
It’s rare for lacrosse programs to look west seeking its next crop of players, as most elite schools are located in the eastern part of the country. For Jonas, this commitment is not only a huge honor, but puts California on the map as a legitimate recruiting pool.
“It’s awesome being the first player to go D1 for lacrosse from San Clemente,” he said. “It’s getting our name out there in the lacrosse world, and it’s awesome that schools are starting to recruit from the west coast. And depending on how I do, it could really open some doors for west coast players, so I’m really excited about that.”
As a sophomore playing for Triton head coach Glen Miles, Jonas totaled 30 goals missing half the season after sustaining a broken humerus.
“I think my strengths are my breakaway speed, my size—coaches love that—and my ability to make plays,” he said. “I know I need to work on my left-hand skills and getting better with the stick overall at the next level.”
He reports a 3.25 GPA and says he’ll take the PSAT for the first time on November 20.

Orange County High School Boys Lacrosse: San Clemente Boys Lacrosse (15-3) Completed Successful Season Capturing 2nd Consecutive South Coast League Championship
The San Clemente boys lacrosse team won its second consecutive South Coast League championship, Saturday, May 1, with a 12-8 victory over Mission Viejo. The Tritons split their regular season games with Tesoro and will share this year’s SCL championship with Tesoro.
In front of the largest lacrosse crowd ever at SCHS, the Tritons established an early two-goal lead in the first few minutes of play. Mission Viejo answered each San Clemente goal in the first half, but the Tritons started to pull away in the third quarter following a 10-yard shot by Trevor Forsyth.
Highlights of the second half included two goals by Robbie Burns after he intercepted two Mission Viejo flip passes on the way to their goalie. Chris Kazimi provided a fitting dramatic finish, with a dive across the crease, coupled with a mid-air, overhanded fake, which he converted to an underhanded goal shot.
Unfortunately, San Clemente’s run at a U.S. Lacrosse Division 1 Southern Section championship came to an end Thursday following a loss to Foothill. Despite the loss, Tritons coach Glen Miles said he was pleased with the season.

We had a great group of seniors this year and I’m happy they were able to bring another SCL Championship back to the school!”

Adidas National High School Classic names West coaches:
Glen Miles of San Clemente High School
Greg Guy of El Toro High School
Baltimore, MD, March 20, 2008 – Head lacrosse coach of San Clemente High School, Glen Miles and El Toro High School head lacrosse coach Greg Guy have been named to coach the West Regional team in this summer’s adidas National High School Lacrosse Classic.
Coach Miles has an impressive lacrosse background. Recently inducted into the Greater Baltimore Chapter of U.S. Lacrosse Hall of Fame, Glen Miles was a three-time All-American at the U.S. Naval Academy who was named the nation’s top midfielder in 1986 and the only Navy lacrosse player to receive the Lt. J.G Donald MacLaughlin Jr. Award named after the former Navy Lacrosse standout who was killed in 1966.
Upon graduation, Miles was named as an alternate to Team USA in ’86, a rare honor at that time for a college player. Four years later he would earn his way onto Team USA and helped lead it to the world title over Team Canada in Perth, Australia. In addition to coaching at San Clemente High School, Glen Miles is the Director of Victory Lacrosse. Victory lacrosse is 501 c3 Lacrosse organization that focuses on lacrosse skill development as well as the character and leadership development of our youth.
Greg Guy, Orange County Coach of the Year, brings an impressive coaching background with record of 61-6. He directed El Toro High School to the 2007 California State Club Lacrosse Championship. A consistent winner, Coach Guy’s teams have reached the 2007, 2006, 2005 and 2004 Orange County lacrosse semifinals. He was the USA West U-19 Team assistant coach in 2006.
“I’m honored to be selected to coach such a revolutionary team. Being a product of Southern California lacrosse, I’m proud to be an ambassador for the sport. I’m also very excited to showcase Southern California talent on a national level to prove that lacrosse is no longer an “east-coast sport” says Coach Guy.
Greg Guy views the inaugural adidas Lacrosse event as a meaningful for the players. “This event has the potential to benefit hundreds of players nationwide. It will not only help players enhance their level of play through competition with the nation’s best, but will also help the recruiting process. One of the major drawbacks to California lacrosse is the lack of exposure to the best schools. This event gives schools a chance to see players from throughout the country, and potentially give students access to those schools and lacrosse programs.”
