Hey D-Pole, What’s The Worst Thing That Can Happen?


You’re a D-pole and you’re trying to make things happen out there on the field. You’re holding it down. Offense is pumped. Your goalie is having a game. But then…

This is the worst thing that can possibly happen to a D-pole.

Founder of Lacrosse All Stars. A West Coast native and product of the MCLA, I moved back East after college where I truly fell in love with the game. I've dedicated my career to LaxAllStars since 2010, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I now live in my hometown of Boise, Idaho, with my wife Zoë, two dogs, and a baby girl expected to arrive around Championship Weekend this May. I'm a technologist at heart, I'm not into snow or the month of January, and one time I kind of stole a football from Gary Gait. Life is crazy busy, but it's worth it when you get to immerse yourself in the medicine of lacrosse every day. We are on a mission to Grow The Game® on a global scale by empowering storytelling by players, for players, and bridging the gap between lacrosse and the mainstream.


  1. this is my life friggin story. I remember my first year in basketball I lit it up every game but every once in a while I would shoot on the wrong basket (never scoring). I was about 10 but I swear I averaged 20 points a game. The only time I’ve been dolphin ed is when I’m shooting on my own net, alone, or with my lacrosse neighbor. it’s embarrassing regardless of having a friend there.

  2. oh wow this also reminds me of the age/texture of a ball. if it’s brand new, my stick throws it straight down. if it’s old, I’m fine with it. I have to get used to new balls if I’m to use one.

  3. Unfortunately I’ve dolphined myself. It was freshman year in the MCLA and we were in a tough nosed game with the #10 team and on a flip back to the goalie, I went off stick side and put one up for the other team. We ended up losing by two. Woof.

  4. What is the goalie doing out of the net there anyway? That defender is picking up a GB and trying to run a clear through the keeper. the keeper is out of position. To his defense slightly, the defender needs to look where he’s throwing the ball. you never should throw the ball away just to get rid of it.
