Mike Stone, professional lacrosse player in the MLL and NALL, was at the Boston Marathon on Monday, and he was in an area located between the two bombs that went off. While Mike emerged from the scene physically unharmed, as did everyone he was with, the event has left him understandably shaken, but also with the desire to help the people of his hometown, Boston.

On Monday I head over to the Czech Republic (Radotin to be specific!) for the 20th annual Ales Hrebesky Memorial box lacrosse tournament. I will be playing with the 2011 champs, Love You To Death, and I’m quite excited to get on board Scotty Komer’s squad.
The US Lacrosse High School Top 25 was released earlier this week, and while we don’t put too much stock in national high school rankings (it’s almost impossible to be truly accurate as there is still so little overlap), they are fun to see, and provide for great chatter.
I don’t know about you guys, but this gives me chills in a major way…
Hobart made the trip over to the Dome in Syracuse and knocked off the Orange, who are widely considered to be a Top 5 team. This is a huge win for Hobart, who now sits at 6-6 on the season. They won the game 13-12 despite losing in a number of statistical areas.
We’ve started the playoff push in the NJCAA ranks. Conference champions are being determined, Regional playoffs will go down, and six teams will be selected to play for the title of the best in JuCo!
I don’t know what it is about the year 2013 for me, but something is different. Maybe it’s just that I’m older now, or that I’m coaching and writing more than ever. Perhaps I’ve just been exposed to “enough” lacrosse at this point in my life. The point is, I can’t help but look at the game a little differently now, and this becomes more true day by day.
Right now, my lacrosse loving cat, Albie, is in the box. What was in the box before he took it over? TONS OF LACROSSE STUFF!
This song is definitely helping me get by today, and I sincerely hope it helps you if you’re feeling pain, or missing the Hub.
This past weekend offered up more excellent college lacrosse action than I’ve seen in a long time. From D1 to D2 to D3, and in the MCLA, we saw upsets and tough games. In this post we showcase some of the best D1 action from the last couple of days…
The USILA and Nike/IL Polls for NCAA D1 Men’s Lacrosse have been released. Quint Kessenich has dropped his Top 20. Let’s break down the Polls and rankings, and see if they are serious! CW will add in his ranking of the Top 20 to provide an alternative view on the situation.
The 2013 Ales Hrebesky Memorial kicks off in only 10 days, and this 20th Anniversary video is nothing short of pure magic.
Welcome back to Pick Your Poison! The Lacrosse Network has two excellent plays to offer up, and in this week’s Pick Your Poison, we’re pitting Joel White of the MLL vs Erik Krum of the LXM PRO, and we want to know which “Catch and Shoot” effort you prefer!
The Eagle Academy Lacrosse Team is off to a good start in its first year as a Developmental Program within New York City’s PSAL (Public School Athletic League). The team has had lower numbers than either of its opponents (usually about half as many: 30 vs 15), but has played very competitively so far.
Welcome to another Lacrosse Video Explosion. It’s Friday, it’s pouring in NYC, and lacrosse season is in full swing. What more could you ask for? Here’s to hoping that the weather is better in your neck of the woods!
Bill Schick hits us up with his second lacrosse video and the highlights are excellent. Just a little post-collegiate NYC ULAX lacrosse balling video. Enjoy!
Any time that McDonogh and Boy’s Latin get together for a High School lacrosse game, you just know it’s going to be killer. iLacrosse provides highlights from the Boys’ Latin 15-10 win over McDonogh.

Doug Runs SONofaHON down in Maryland, and he is the creator of the EverPocket, which is a removable/replaceable traditional pocket. Now Doug is back with a beaded traditional string, and while it’s one of the weirdest things I’ve seen in a while, it’s also one of the cooler things I’ve seen… Love the creativity!
