This morning in our travels of the interwebs, we ran across this great video of some Slovak Lacrosse action. At just over two minutes and thirty seconds, you have no reason NOT to watch how much our sport has grown around the world.
Tucker Durkin’s high school highlight tape quickly became a thing of legend (at least in my mind) because of the sheer ferocity on display. Durkin thinks man first, and makes the opposition pay time and time again. If you haven’t seen it, it’s truly worth a watch or ten. He just knocks over everybody out there.
New York City has now claimed their second straight Empire Cup title, and after years of being the doormat of the Empire Games (the EC’s predecessor), the City’s region team rise is definitely something worth noting. I got to catch up with NYC’s coach, Ben Kaminow (a Syracuse club player in the 80s), to discuss the team, and how the New York City lacrosse landscape is rapidly changing, and improving.
Here at LAS, I’d like to think we’ve been on a roll as of late bringing you some great music that you won’t find on the Billboard charts or iTunes top lists, and we’re keeping the ball rolling on that theme this week.
Rob Pannell has signed a five year deal with Brine, and this lengthy contract should help keep Rob going in lacrosse full-time for the foreseeable future. We spoke with Rob about the deal, what it means to him, and why he chose to go with Brine.
Most lacrosse players know how important cross-sport training can be, whether lacrosse is your primary sport or not. This week’s spotting, sent in by LAS reader Eric Ochoa, supports that claim, in the form of WWE star Mick Foley.
Don’t let the time off between seasons keep you from becoming a better lacrosse player. Here are tips for improving during the offseason.
If the title of this post alone didn’t intrigue you, I’m not sure what will. This past weekend, I suited up with Team TLN of The Lacrosse Network, and Salisbury long pole Knute Kraus made me look really good after I fed him this ball.
Here’s a great shot captured by TLN’s Contest Colin. The player pictured is Southland Laxer Knute Kraus (Salisbury ’15), and not only is he rocking a jammy pack pre-game, but the Orange Balloon is prominently featured in the background.
1) String a stick in the car or subway… …On the way to the beach or to grandma’s house! If it’s a long trip, string the stick two times or more. Practice makes perfect! 2) Introduce the game to a friend… ….Someone who has never played before. Coaching someone else will help YOUR game improve. Guarantee it! 3) Watch some high level lacrosse… …The MLL, LXM, WLA, MSL, Can-Am and more all going on right now. There are games on…
This week’s takes a look at making sure your priorities are in order.
When I say man-child, I mean man-child. Cole Miller is a 6’4″, 215+ pound player out of Ridgewood, NJ, who will be attending Avon Old Farms next year. Nothing too crazy so far, but unlike most guys approaching six and a half feet, Cole doesn’t play defense.
Welcome back to another morning Music Monday. This week I’m bringing you a fresh take on a couple songs and a new sound from another artist. We all know the saying, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” and I ‘d say I usually feel this way about my music. I’m often hesitant to like a remix or when another artists touches anthers song but when things work out its pretty awesome.
Today, at NOON ET, LaxAllStars will be hosting a LIVE Google Hangout on the subject of Recruiting, Elite Teams, and Travel Lacrosse! Our knowledgeable guests will include Trevor Tierney (of Tier Lacrosse), Xander Ritz (of Adrenaline Lacrosse), and Lee Southren (the founder of the NJ Riot).
When a goalie decides to take the ball up the field themselves, you always figure they’re going to pass it. Unless I’m playing against Brett Queener or Marty Dunn, that’s what I would expect, at least. In the clip below, I’d be thinking the same thing… this kid is going to pass it, but he doesn’t.
I took in the New York Lizards – Denver Outlaws game on Sunday evening, and a couple of things really stood out to me. I’ll go through some of the bigger story lines for the game, and provide a couple of Game Photos to support each avenue of discussion.
Week number two of Stick Trick Saturday is upon us. This week Colton was in Coeur D’Alane, Idaho on vacation, but that won’t stop him from fooling around with a lacrosse stick. Plus there’s a new Matt Gibson video out. How is that not exciting?
Colton Raichl with you again to show you his way of stringing up a Maverik Spider 17. Colton had never used a Spider before, and really likes the way it turned out. The shape of the head allows for a very nicely formed mesh pocket. Here is a tutorial.
It’s Week 13 in the MLL, and we’ve got four teams left to battle for two spots: who’s going to Philly and who’s going home? Chris Rosenthall fills you in!
This week, I’ve stumbled upon something originally posted June 1st! Even though it’s a few months old, there have been various replies this week to the post, which itself has a very catchy ring to it. It’s the FOGO Head Thread.
