Making Elite Recruiting Events Truly Elite

0 - Published March 11, 2014 by in High School, Interviews

A decade ago, there were only a handful of truly elite recruiting camps and tournaments. If you wanted to be seen by top level coaches, and play against the best, this small number of events were where you wanted to be. Fast forward to today, and it seems like there are more recruiting events than there are recruits!

Fairfield opened up a 1 goal lead after 1 quarter, and a 2 goal lead going into the half, but Yale just would not go quietly into that good night. Both teams put up 4 goals in the third, and Yale clamped down in the fourth to blank Fairfield, while scoring two goals of their own, to tie it up at 11. OT came and Stags’ senior Eric Warden launched a bomb from about 13 yards to win it for Fairfield.

This Is How Loyola Trounced Duke

0 - Published March 10, 2014 by in College, NCAA

They shot well, came in with a great game plan, and executed to perfection. It’s still early in March, but Loyola is clearly a team on a mission this year. I expect them to drop another game or two and possibly have some off days, but if they are gelling at the end of the year like this, the Hounds are as dangerous as anyone in the country.

They were wrong… it was a GREAT idea! Lax School brings you the full segment on Jim Brown’s days on the lacrosse field for Syracuse University in this MUST SEE video!

LAS Partner, Maverik Lacrosse, was nice enough to hook me up with a couple of their new Metrik heads to string up and I have to be honest… I’m loving how these heads string up! Whether it’s mesh or leathers, it’s an easy head to string and the Universal face shape is definitely a favorite of mine already.

Hot Pot: Creating Your Own Swag

0 - Published March 5, 2014 by in Hot Pot

I’ve come to grips with the fact that swag is going to play a part in our greater society, and therefore lacrosse. Sitting in my brick tower I can easily sit back and decry swag, but this time around I’m going to offer up something a little different, and acknowledge that swag is indeed a part of the game now. Come to think of it, it’s been a part of the game for a long, long time, and I’ve been far from immune.

Learning Lessons From Lacrosse On TV

0 - Published March 3, 2014 by in College

Lacrosse on television is great for people like us (lacrosse people) for many reasons, the most obvious being that we simply get to watch lacrosse, and that in and of itself is fun. But a deeper benefit to watching the game is learning the game, and players, coaches, and even refs can all learn a thing or two by watching a lot of lacrosse on TV.
