College coaches hit the recruiting trail hard over the Summer, especially in June and July. They line the side of fields in their fold out chairs across the country, and scout talent, and look for future players. When the action gets close, they get a great view, but also run the risk of getting trucked.
College rivals meet in Charlotte, Lizards or Cannons start a streak and the Machine look to pull off the upset of the decade.
We’ve always been somewhat jealous of the big goofy mascots running out the field at baseball games, so as soon as we saw this fly into our mailbox, we knew it was worth a caption!
This week, one hot topic has been around one member’s issues with some leathers in his stick. He’s just not quite sure why they are messing up on him. Check out the post and a picture of his dilemma here.
Joe Vitale was a two-time first team All-American in his last two years at Adelphi, and played in two games for the Charlotte Hounds last year. Right now, Vitale is on the New York Lizards’ practice squad, and he can straight up BRING THE HEAT when shooting. He hit 111 at camp this week.
Both Rob and James Pannell have been working Max Seibald’s Maximum Lacrosse Camps in NYC this week, and while the two definitely get along very nicely, the spirit of healthy competition is alive and well in this family!
I was a big fan of Jay Jalbert in his playing days at UVA, and I’ve liked the short videos he has produced in the next leg of his career. His new LXM video for Maverik Films is as legit as any before, and special for a couple of reasons…
Schommy is one of the most knowledgeable, passionate, and competitive people I’ve ever met. He’s also a great friend, proud Australian, and one heck of a face off instructor. CW has known Schommy since 2001, and it’s about time you get to know him too.
Yesterday we brought you Part One of Chasing The Dream, by Malcolm Chase. Today we bring you Part Two of Malcolm’s epic journey, as he strives to make a game roster for the Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse.
This week’s Traditional Thursday post is pretty epic. We have a video interview with Jeremy Thomspson after a recent Nationals game, photos of Jeremy’s stick in action (it’s a traditional variation that is NEW to us!), AND some expert tips from Mr. Thompson himself!
The lower ranked Major League Lacrosse teams win, the top teams lose, and the playoff hunt gets a bit more complicated. It’s the MLL Week 7 Recap, Chris Rosenthall style.
Photo credit: Adrln Blog Last week, our friends at Adrenaline, an LAS partner, hosted the 2013 Black Card Showcase in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. In it’s second year, the Black Card event featured 175 high school boys lacrosse players who are counted amongst the top one percent of uncommitted aspiring collegiate athletes in North America.

Tales of an MLL Rookie’s Quest to get on the Field by Malcolm Chase
Connor Wilson quickly caught up with Rob Pannell, and had to ask him what it was like to see so many kids rocking his #3 Lizards jersey or T-shirt… Rob’s answer is pretty cool!
The Scotland Clydesiders have put together an artistic and inspiring video promoting their team and the sport. It’s a basic promo video, with a cool twist, and it’s well worth a couple minutes of your time.
It’s always fun to compare states and regions within lacrosse using polls. It might not be scientific in any way, but it certainly showcases perceived differences in talent, and makes for an interesting conversation. We’ll take a look at the two biggest Top 25 Polls, and see if we can draw any conclusions!
Shendelle Oliver put together the following report on Western Australia’s national championships win. Much appreciated for the update from Down Under via a traveling girl in Europe! West Australia beats Victoria with a young state lacrosse team.
