Cajun’s Corner: Introducing Chris Dill

8 - Published October 14, 2010 by in High School

I’d like to introduce you to some more of Louisiana’s talent.

The other day, a guy I know from New York told me “I know for a fact that there are some lacrosse players in Louisiana that are better than the ones in New York.” Obviously, good Louisiana laxers are like diamonds in the rough, but I’ll help point you in the right direction.

Meet Chris Dill, certified manimal. He plays Defense and LSM for St. Paul’s, and the U19 All Star Team, Quick Stick.

If you’re a college recruiter and have half a bit of sense, you’ll call this kid and recruit his balls off. Easily one of the most talented and aggressive long poles in the South. He’s a lefty, and a multi-sport, freak athlete.

I really debated on what to title this video. It was either “Chris Dill Highlights” or “Chris Dill Murders Everyone.”

You can also find Chris badgering attackmen in my Navy Camp video. He’s in the back at the 1:20 mark, and in the front at the 2:05 mark.

A few of his Stats and Honors:
– 50+ ground balls last year
– 32 take aways
– 3 year varsity & captain.
– Junior year All state, All District
– Invited to play in England for U19 Team USA West
– Plays for Elite team Quick stick.

LAS: When did you start playing lacrosse and why?

Chris Dill: I started playing my sophomore year – the first year St Paul’s started lacrosse. My passion was baseball until I broke my arm playing football. The doctor told me I wouldn’t be able to play baseball due to the injury, so I signed up to play lacrosse. Who knew that I would fall in love with this sport?

What has been your favorite moments playing lacrosse so far?

One of my favorite moments is playing our first year against ocean springs at the battle at the beach, it came down to brave heart. All the other schools were pulling for us since we were so bad……….. We won that game.

My second favorite moment was playing for Quick Stick, when we went to Georgia to play in a tournament. Coach Austin (Speni) said we were going there for experience, and to see where we matched up against other great teams. Well, we finished third out of ten teams in the tournament.

What’s your pregame ritual?
Pregame I lead with a prayer, and then we do some crazy chants and end with our school motto: Wolf Pride.
