Miles Thompson MLL Traditional

0 - Published June 30, 2014 by in Major League Lacrosse, Pro Lacrosse

Many of you noticed that Miles Thompson had stopped using a traditional pocket when he joined Major League Lacrosse’s Rochester Rattlers. Some said he was now a “mesh guy”, but the more likely explanation for the switch is that a traditional pocket takes time to break in, and Miles had used a Nike head in college, which he couldn’t use in the MLL, because of manufacturer deals. But now he’s back with a new Miles Thompson MLL Traditional pocket!

Hot Pot: Pride and Character

0 - Published June 25, 2014 by in Hot Pot

I’ve been working lacrosse camp again this week, and each day, we come up with a word of the day. On day one, Dom DiNapoli (assistant coach at St. John’s University) gave us the word CHARACTER. On day two, Dom’s brother Steve (who plays for the NY Lizards) gave us the word PRIDE. Both words have something to do with one another, but they also have their own nuance.

The Chesapeake Bayhawks got back on the winning track with a big 16-15 win over the visiting Boston Cannons this past weekend, and Craig Chase was there snapping superb photos for our viewing pleasure. Not a bad deal! This is Boston’s 4th loss of the season (they now sit at 3-4), and each of these losses has come by single goal.

Kyle Harrison: Still Shaking People Silly

0 - Published June 13, 2014 by in Major League Lacrosse, Pro Lacrosse

Kyle Harrison has always had a case of the shakes. From playing basketball in high school to lacrosse at Johns Hopkins, K18 struck fear in opponents with his shiftiness and ability to use both hands, if needed. Kyle is a righty, but you have to respect his left, as it is deadly, and when he combines this with a good burst of speed and hard shot, he can be un-guardable.

0 - Published June 12, 2014 by in College, NCAA

Welcome to Throwback Thursday! This week we’re showing off a great full game video from 1989 featuring Cortland State (NCAA D3) and Syracuse, the defending NCAA D1 champions! Back in the 70s, 80s, and even 90s, it was relatively common for D1 teams to play D3 teams, and even club teams, as the number of lacrosse playing colleges was much smaller.
