As the Polish Lacrosse Leagues 1 & 2 pick up speed, it’s starting to become clear who has the upper hand. We’ll also take a look at the distances our teams are traveling to play lacrosse. Talk about sacrifice to Grow The Game! Watch out for the game MVP’s to make an impact in Denver next year.
Scotty Komer is a professional box lacrosse goalie, which means he is from Canada. Being from Canada, it is likely that he played quite a bit of hockey in addition to all that lacrosse. Seeing as Komer looks nothing but natural as the goalie in the above Coke Zero commercial (aside from all the goals he let in), we’d say he definitely played some puck as a kid.
Last year was a very exciting year in Division 3 men’s lacrosse, with Stevenson winning their first ever championship. Aurora College in Colorado made their first NCAA tournament, and won a game. RIT beat Cortland with a hidden ball trick, and Salisbury was finally dethroned as the most dominant team in the South, if only for a season. As fall ball and training continues to roll, here’s a look at some of the top teams from last year, as well as a couple potential dark horses for 2014.
Harvard hosted England Lacrosse last night in an exhibition scrimmage, and already has video highlights up. They also played against St. John’s and Army this past weekend, and there is a quick highlight video from that day as well.
There is something to be said for basic, get-down-to-business apparel, both athletic and otherwise. I don’t mind that there are so many manufacturers of apparel out there, but I am slightly concerned that the focus isn’t where it needs to be most of the time. In fact, I’m pretty sure we’re starting to get to leather jogging pants levels in some cases.
If you’re a dedicated lacrosse player, odds are you’re putting in a decent amount of time on the wall. You’ll probably be scooping the occasional groundball off the pavement or hard packed dirt. These rough surfaces will eventually take a toll on your scoop and topstring. In order to keep your topstring from completely fraying and giving out on you, we have a great little Lax Hack from Justin at Stylin Strings.
Our friends at Stylin Strings posted this awesome photo on Instagram, and it was too good not to share. I’m not sure where the Stylin guys are traveling to, but you can’t go wrong with your favorite lacrosse stick and a Batman backpack.

Today we’re checking in with two well-known “college rap” rappers that have been maturing over the last couple years… and moving away from the party rap scene into their own deeper genres.
4onetwolax had us racking our brains for a good nominee for a lacrosse themed Burger King “the King” commercial. He came up with three great examples himself and asked others to propose their potential top videos. We have to go with the King starring as Brett Queener with this full field goalie goal.
This past weekend the Denver University Pioneers’ men’s lacrosse team faced off against the Denver Outlaws in a fall exhibition know as the Colorado Lacrosse Showcase. The current NCAA D1 powerhouse of the west squared off against their more experienced city mates from the MLL and came out on top 10-5.
Nike has been slowly getting their foot in the door for a few years now. Their explosion in popularity in the Lakota head is what helped Nike really get some exposure. Now with the Ceo U, they are looking to build on that growth. Let’s get down to brass tax with an LAS Gear Review!
The final stages of the English National Team selection process for Denver 2014 is nearing completion. To truly test the squad, and see who will make the final cuts, the team has come to the States to take on some top-notch collegiate, and club, competition.
This week’s Music Monday brings us yet another gem from the Pacific Northwest. Seattle lyricists Tiglo and Cole better known as Brothers From Another or BFA for short are a young duo hailing from Seattle. The Seattle Hip-Hop scene is quite impressive and BFA brings an “easy going flavor of the mid 90′s while maintaining a new school attitude in their lyrics.” The two have managed to put out 6 EP’s to date and only have a bright future ahead of them.
Mark Donahue recaps the past week inside and outside the sport of lacrosse.
