When the age the athlete plays for doesn’t match up with the graduating year it can at first create some confusion.  Even at Prep Dig we can’t always assume if an athlete playing on a 17s team is from the Class of 2019. To hopefully clear some confusion here are some top players that might be playing at a different age level that might not necessarily match the year they are graduating.  For example if they have an “older birthday” meaning born before September 1 of the year that they are playing for they have to play a year up. Or if they have a “younger birthday” meaning a birthday that is past September 1 they can play a year down. Depending on the needs at different clubs some athletes may need to play up to fill a void in a line up.  Here are some athletes to know about that might be in a different graduating class their age defines them as.
