Should we really call this type of traditional the “Miles Thompson Pocket”? He is surely not the first person to use it, and his brother, Jerome, strings it for him. It doesn’t matter. Miles is so hot right this has to be the MT2 Pocket. It just has to be!

The United States Coast Guard Academy, located in New London, CT, will be transitioning from MCLA D2 to NCAA D3 in 2015. The USCGA lacrosse program has a long history of success, but this current group is taking things to the next level, both on the field and off of it. Commander Sean Cross has been helping the team with promotion over the last couple of MCLA seasons, and he has provided us with a great look into the program’s pending transition to the D3 level.
We are inching ever closer to the FIL World Lacrosse Championships in Denver (It’s in July)! Rosters are being trimmed down to a final set of 23, numbers are being assigned, players are working harder than ever to prepare, and many fundraising efforts are nearing their final stages!
Craig Chase has been shooting D1 and MLL games for us, but back in 2007 he was shooting games and producing sweet, sweet photos! One of the events he shot in 2007 was the Crabfest Tournament, and Craig sent over some photos from the event, and they feature a number of guys who just graduated, or are still in college.
It’s that wonderful time of the year where lacrosse video REALLY means something! The games are all one and done, and in each division, there can be only champ. Who’s bringing home the hardware? We shall know quite soon!
I really need to figure out what a “speed dodge” actually is. It can’t be as simple as just running by someone, can it?
Since I have not made any clear decisions on what the grand enigma of playoff success must be, I will defer to people with much more experience and success in this matter. It’s good to have friends who are smarter than you! Let’s take a small sampling of what it means to make a successful playoff push, from some of the best minds in the game.
In the end, I can still understand rewarding the “good” teams with more All-Americans. But here is the thrust of my thought process right now: I simply don’t believe that any one team in the Top 20 of D3 is really 11 or 12 All Americans better than someone only a handful of spots behind them.
Reliving the Notre Dame Albany NCAA D1 lacrosse quarterfinal game is going to be a Summer past time for many people, and this is how they can do it. Simply amazing.
I took in the New York City Public School Athletic League (PSAL) Championship games for both the boys and girls, and for both the Bowl Division and the Championship Divisions. It was a great day of lacrosse in the Big Apple!
We get a lot of good photos from our photographer crew, but our Director of Photography, Tommy Gilligan, really pulled out all the stops this weekend with this shot!
Craig Chase departed the confines of Loyola’s Ridley Athletic Complex after the Hounds got eliminated, and got right back to work. The level of play may not be NCAA D1 anymore, but the photos are still great!
If you didn’t catch Notre Dame’s insane comeback on Saturday to defeat Albany in OT, you need to drop everything, go to ESPN3 right now, and spend two and a half hours watching one of the best NCAA D1 tournament games of all-time. Do you think I’m crazy for saying that? Watch the game, then […]
A decade ago, in 2004, the Navy men’s lacrosse team made an epic run to the Final Four, and then in front of the whole nation, the Midshipmen did the unthinkable, winning their semifinal game, and matching up with Syracuse on Memorial Day.
I got to know Julian Maliszewski at this year’s Ales Hrebesky Memorial, and I asked this dominant face off man why he used a traditional pocket. We got to talking, and I wasn’t shocked to find out that Julian knew a lot about the art of leather and string, so I sent him some questions about his pocket, and face off guys using traditional, and Julian crushed out some awesome answers. He also sent over some photos of the heads and pockets he uses.
