By now you probably know that the US Lacrosse Convention, better known as #LaxCon, was in Philadelphia last weekend, and anyone who’s anyone in lacrosse was there. But after a grand old time, the inevitable end had to come…

Is there such thing as a “perfect pocket?” That’s the question that has arisen in this week’s Forum Friday. The poster really wants to know what the characteristics of a perfect pocket are, so we would have to assume that they think there is such thing as a perfect pocket. However, instead of a pocket that is perfect in terms of working for everyone, I think the question may be looking for more general qualities.
LXM PRO 858 in San Diego was a thriller last weekend, with Team STX edging out a 16-15 win over Maverik United on a Max Ritz goal with two seconds left. Earlier in the game, Sam Bradman put Team STX on his back with four first half goals, including what was just about the most beautiful low release shot I have ever seen. It was an on the run riser, and Kyle Harrison definitely appreciated the shot as much as I did.
We’ve had a ton of Huarache spotting so far this NFL season, and we aren’t done yet! Although the Buffalo Bills didn’t make the playoffs this year, they did have a few players wearing Nike lacrosse cleats.
Sometimes, you have to do whatever it takes to get your lacrosse in for the day. In this week’s Photo of the Week, we have Liv Lax of Los Angeles driving goals on the highway in a U-Haul bed.
Traditional stringing has always been a big topic here at LAS, and this week’s Forum Friday is a question about the best leathers to use. This matter is clearly based on opinion, but with so many options these days, from Throne to East Coast Dyes to Jimalax and more, hearing testimonials from other players in the LAS Community is a huge blessing!
The NLL kicked off last weekend, and although Colorado dropped their home opener, they were making big waves online. Trendsmap, a website that monitors what’s trending on Twitter in different cities, tweeted that “Mammoth” was trending in Denver during the game against Edmonton.
Yes, Lax-Mas Day was last week, but New Year’s Eve is tonight, so we thought it would be more appropriate to share this spotting with you this week. After all, spotter Rick did see this sign outside a pub!
The NLL is back! But before opening night could officially kick off for Rochester, they had a little banner raising to do…
At the beginning of the month, a LaxAllStars Community member asked for advice to string a dropped top string. He has a Tribe 7 head, which seems to be popular with some face off guys like Greg Gurenlian, and is unsure about which type of dropped top string to use.
Last week we debuted Flip, a documentary about Flip Naumburg. Who is Flip Naumburg? Oh, only the visionary behind offset heads, the architect of the MCLA dynasty that is Colorado State, and the founder of Rock-It-Pocket. A recent CSU grad, Patrick Sullivan, responded to my tweet about the film with these words about Flip.
Merry Christmas Eve! We hope the next few days are full of family and friends. This week’s Photo of the Week was an easy choose, coming from @TheBucketHelmet on Twitter.
Another Huarache spotting…but this one’s different! This is a commercial for the University of Phoenix, and it features Arizona Cardinal Larry Fitzgerald rocking some black and white Huarache 3s.
The holiday season is in full effect, and with it comes relaxing, good food, and time with family. It can be tough to stay in shape during this time of year, but it’s always important to keep training, especially with lacrosse season starting right after the holidays. How do you stay in shape over the holidays? That’s what this week’s poster wants to know!
By now you probably know that Devon Wills has become the first female player on a Major League Lacrosse roster. While she wasn’t picked up in the Supplemental Draft as some may have hoped, the NY Lizards claimed the two-time FIL Women’s World Cup gold medalist out of the Player Pool. While she still has to prove herself to make it from the training camp roster to the game roster, she has the support of many in the lacrosse community, including Connor Martin.
