Get To Know Jacksonville University


E-Lacrosse recently ran a video spot on Jacksonville University’s new Division 1 lacrosse program, and I’ve gotta tell ya, they might have a slight recruiting advantage over schools in the Northeast.

About 10 years ago Pepperdine University ran an add in Lacrosse Magazine regarding their MCLA program (Then USLIA), that featured a shot of their beach-side campus.  Suddenly their coach was fielding inquiries from across the nation.  If a club team can get that kind of response based on weather and access to the ocean, imagine what a school with a similar location and the ability to offer scholarships might be able to do.

Could they end being the Miami U of lacrosse?
