Box lacrosse players have to be some of the toughest S.O.B.’s in sports. I’ve had the opportunity to watch a few games live and after seeing the abuse those guys take from each other, I’ll stick to the field game thank you. That said, we’ve all probably had the same thoughts as these SportsCenter anchors at least once.
I’ve often been a critic of the production quality offered by ESPN during their MLL coverage. Past blunders such as the cameraman losing the ball, or the booth cutting to a close up of the sideline while a goal is being scored, have left me more than a little frustrated at times.
Just a few weeks after the controversial release of long time head coach Jason Lamb, Brigham Young University has found a replacement in former assistant coach Matt Schneck. Two new assistant coaches have also been named: Jordan Harris (Defense) and Josh Austin (Offense).
Laxpower recently named their 2009 de facto high school national champion, giving Gilman of Baltimore the honor for a second straight year. The Greyhounds earned the title by putting together a 15-1 record in the brutal Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association and defeating Calvert Hall (Laxpower #15) in the state title game.
Sometimes it’s hard enough just dealin with real life

While Spring is the officially recognized season of lacrosse, many of us have reached a time in our lives where our early-year participation is limited to coaching or living vicariously through those we watch on the field. So what does a washed up college player (see: the entire LAS staff) living outside of a large metropolitan area (see: Rusty) have to look forward to?
Lacrosse has always been more to me than just a sport. Struggling to find a place as a public school kid at a Catholic High School, lacrosse gave me (amongst hundreds of other things) access to a great group of friends, friends that I’ve stayed close with for years.
I’ve been in a number of heated discussions with baseball players regarding which spring sport is more legitimate (whatever that means), but I think the following video makes that argument obsolete. Baseball players, you have officially lost.
Question: When will lacrosse stop being new? I can’t count the number of times I’ve run in to “Check out the new thing all the kids are doing” style article about the oldest sport in the country.
Hey LaxNation, looking for a the stick trick version of a platonic ideal? Here it is, in the form of Clay Martin out of Ohio University. (Music NSFW)
One of the things that all of us in the lacrosse community seem to take pride in is the growth of the game’s popularity. New high school leagues, obscure college participation in the MCLA, and youth programs that rival optimist football can only mean a higher quality game in the future. That is, of course, if we can find quality coaching.
I’ve always known that some of life’s most valuable lessons could be learned on the athletic field, but I never thought that fiscal responsibility was one of them. Now, thanks to Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank, that has changed.
