I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to do, but I wanted to add on another color of cross lace, and do something a little weird and wacky, for no other reason than to have fun. I ended up producing the first ever (as far as I know) ‘S’ Flair Pocket!

Superb High School Lacrosse Video

A three minute highlight tape is better than nothing. Everyone gets to see some big goals and their attention span is not tested to any serious degree. When an 11:00 minute plus highlight comes out, it had better be good, and it had better feature two very good teams.

- Published April 3, 2014 by in College, NCAA

Welcome back to another crazy installment of the D3 Report! This season has been chock full of upsets, surprise teams, and quick Top 20 risers.

0 - Published April 3, 2014 by in Box, Featured, International

The year was 1985, and the Philadelphia Spectrum was playing host to the IBLA Exhibition Series between the US and Canada. This series pitted the best US box players against the best that Canada had to offer and the guys on both rosters served as a who’s who of lacrosse in the mid 80s. This event was also called the North American Cup, and was a very cool concept.

Hot Pot: Does Technology Make Sports Better?

0 - Published April 2, 2014 by in Technology

Any time you ask a broad question, like the one posed in the title of the post, you are bound to get answers that run from one end of the spectrum to the other. Certain situations merit an easy ‘yes’ or a hard ‘no’, while others are seemingly stuck in a grey area of limbo. Where does the technology in sport debate fall on this spectrum? Is this a question we can even answer?

Killer Tufts Highlight Videos

Tufts Lacrosse has been crushing it on the field, and at 7-1 the Jumbos are definitely top 10 material for 2014. Tufts lost 15-9 to Stevenson, and only beat Keene State by 1 goal (17-16), but other than that, they have been crushing opponents. To go along with that, Tufts Lacrosse is crushing the video department as well.

We are absolutely loving Garrett Thul right now. The man was a beast at Army, and when he played in the Salt Shakerz tourney a couple years back he was unstoppable. Now, he’s one of 30 guys vying for 23 spots on Team USA, and he’s ripping it up as a rookie in the National Lacrosse League.

College Sports: Is Complete Change Coming?

0 - Published March 31, 2014 by in College, NCAA, Pro Lacrosse

Sportscasters, College Presidents, and the even the average man on the street, typically dismissed the idea that college athletes should get paid. A select few saw a new potential reality, but now that Northwestern’s Football Team has been granted the right to unionize, people are starting to approach the topic with more nuance (well, sometimes…) and some deserved gravitas.

I strung up a standard 8 diamond traditional pocket in this Maverik Metrik and used Paracord. Then I went to play some wall ball with it. How was it different from a regular traditional pocket? Would I recommend trying Paracord in your next pocket?
