The MCLA has experienced a large amount of success over the last few seasons. From its appearances on CSTV to the creation of its own magazine, the “virtual-varsity” league has established itself as a legitimate option for lacrosse players coming out of high school.
But what about the teams that aren’t finding their way into any magazines?
What about the guys who are still doing what all MCLA teams used to do: Barely collecting enough money to pay their league dues, driving individual cars to away games and sleeping five to a room in dive motels when they get there. What makes these guys tick?
I recently went to Caldwell, Idaho to see how the College of Idaho Yotes have used their love of the game as the primary means to overcome the obstacles many new programs face.
