The title of this post may be confusing, because you might not know what a dap is. I didn’t know either, but LXM buds Kyle Harrison and Sam Bradman knew the word. Here, suited up for the Jack Lingo/Fireball squad at Lake Placid, they celebrated a goal with a dap.
We have received a TON of questions over the last month or so, so I’m going through them and answering them one by one. If my answer doesn’t satisfy you, follow up with me in the comments, and I will try to help you out!
Editor’s Note: Kacy Small saw both the NCAA rules and FIL rules firsthand this year. After reflecting on his experience, he’s sure one of them is doing it right, while the other has some potential areas for improvement. Can you guess which version of lacrosse Kacy prefers before reading the article? And what do you think of his argument?

John Grant Junior, Joe Walters, Brett Queener, and the rest of the 2008 Rochester Rattlers put on an absolute show to win Major League Lacrosse’s title over the Denver Outlaws, 16-6 in Boston. When Casey Powell is barely even in the highlights, you know the action is legit.
Four disappointed teams will be stuck at home on Championship Weekend. What went wrong, and can they turn things around next season?
Can you guess who this goalie is? We’ll give you a hint. He’s a professional field goalie, and this was his very first time trying his hand at box. My honest assessment is that he didn’t flinch, even when coaches were rifling balls at him, and he took to it easily.
There were a couple of body-rocking, jaw-dropping hits in the 2007 Major League Lacrosse Championship Game between the Los Angeles Riptide and the Philadelphia Barrage. Philly came out on top, even if they took the worst of the hits in the video. Kyle Sweeney’s goal at end the short clip is one for the ages, and that’s why we showed it three or four times.
If you believe the announcers on the video, this is the first time the hidden ball trick has ever been successfully pulled off at the World Championships. I can’t imagine that is actually true, as Canada has been playing in that thing forever, but that’s not the point.
Decades ago, Open Tryouts for college lacrosse teams were much more common than they are now. A coach might have known that he was getting a couple of star players each year, but pulling athletes from the general student body was a time honored tradition, and one that yielded some excellent players and, eventually, some excellent coaches. In some cases, it was also required just to round out the roster. The Open Tryout needs to make a comeback!
Today on LAS, we are introducing you to a medley of relaxing, kickback beach music. I’m writing from the beautiful San Juan Islands in Washington, where I’ve been laying back, watching the glassy water, and listening to tunes like this all week.
I’m always looking for high school level highlight tapes where I am convinced that the player in question has a solid future in the college game. The player doesn’t have to be a top 10 D1 lock to get noticed, but they do have to do something special, like show an uncanny ability to finish, a high IQ for their age, a great set of defensive checks, or a goalie who shines.
Another NFL player wearing lacrosse cleats, again from tipster Ty Stauffer! Looks to be red and white Huarache 3s for this Arizona Cardinals player. By the looks of it, it’s cornerback Patrick Peterson, #21 for the Cards.

Each MLL Championship Game, and Championship Weekend presented by Smartlink, is different. Some result in physical brawls where teams trade goals and hits. That’s intense! Other finals have showcased some of the best lacrosse plays we’ve ever seen, and still others feature shooting the likes of which we rarely see. Major League Lacrosse’s 2006 title game was one of the latter.
If Chesapeake wants a shot at the title, Kip Turner will have to be on point his weekend, even when shots go wide. WARNING: There be GIFs ahead!
