Growing up in Bend Oregon I found lacrosse to be my passion in the 7th grade. Now I am a junior attackman at the University of Idaho. If I'm not playing lacrosse I'm either watching lacrosse, playing with my dog, or stringing a stick. Follow me on Twitter @ColtonRaichlLAS and Instagram at Colton Raichl. Go Vandals!

Stick Trick Saturday: The Playoff Push

The playoff push is meant for you to incorporate wall ball into your stick trick routine.

Working with the wall, play wall ball only using the sidewall of your stick and see how far back from the wall you can get.
