Casey Powell made his return to the NLL last weekend, and a Mammoth return it was. Pun fully intended.
After missing the first seven games of the 2014 NLL season, Colorado Mammoth forward Casey Powell is set to return to the team this weekend. With the team looking to get back on track, Powell will make his season-debut against the Minnesota Swarm at Pepsi Center on Saturday at 9 p.m. ET.
The biggest news out of Florida so far has been the Casey Powell – Joe Walters swap that went down yesterday. Powell was a leader for the Bayhawks last year, and helped them win their second straight title. It’s a little surprising to see Powell leave such a monster team, but when you consider all the promotion work he did for the last MLL All-Star game (held in Florida), it starts to make a lot of sense…
While at the Saratoga Springs Lacrosse Shootout in July, I got the opportunity to witness all three Powell brothers reunited and ready to put on a show. For the first time in nearly 6 years, Casey, Ryan, and Mike hosted “The Powell Hour” in front of a few hundred of Upstate New York’s most passionate lacrosse players and fans.
Back in 1998, Sports Illustrated published an article profiling brothers Casey Powell and Ryan Powell as they led Syracuse University toward another successful lacrosse season. The article, written by Seth Davis and published in the May 5th issue, provides a great insider’s look at how both brothers inevitably came together to play at Syracuse and chase their […]
The 10,000 hour rule is an interesting concept. Malcolm Gladwell raised the idea a number of times in the book Outliers, and the theory basically states than any “master” of a particular discipline has put in at least 10,000 hours of dedicated work to learn and perfect their skill set within that discipline. While the exact number of hours is still up for debate, and further statistical analysis is needed, I am confident that the overall point stands: The truly great put in the hours and the effort in order to be truly great.
It’s pretty common knowledge that Matt Gibson is one of the best tweeters in the lacrosse world, if not the entire world. This week he just had too many good ones to pick only one Tweet of the Week, so here are three. With cameos from Casey Powell and Connor Martin, this is a Gibby Trifecta.
Casey Powell shares a little something Gary Gait taught him with youth and high school lacrosse players at the first annual Saratoga Springs Lacrosse Shootout in Upstate New York.
Since it was just MLL Championship Weekend, and my favorite team, the Chesapeake Bayhawks, were crowned champs for the second consecutive season and fifth overall (some would call that a dynasty), I’m allowing two tweets for this week’s Tweet of the Week. And what do they teach us? No one passes like the Hawks, and heroes are remembered, but old man legends never die.
Lacrosse legend Casey Powell shares advice with high school players at the Saratoga Springs Lacrosse Shootout.
It’s not scientific, and just for fun. No reason is really needed other than that! We respect both of these legends immensely, and we’re just interested to hear which assist you like more… Millon’s dodge and dump from X? Or Powell’s quick stick feed to a cutter? We thought they were both great, but which was BETTER?
We’re counting down the days to Major League Lacrosse’s Championship Weekend present by Smartlink, and we’re kicking it off in video style with this week’s Throwback Thursday! We’ve got a great short clip of Casey Powell chasing someone down from behind, and then scoring a goal off the dodge, against the Bayhawks.
When Casey Powell tweets about Paul Rabil tweeting about John Grant, Jr. … there’s just too much talent in one tweet thread to be ignored. It turns out Junior made an awesome menu item, the Legendary Mammoth Burger, named of course for his NLL team, at the Hard Rock Cafe in Denver.
Much ado was made by many in the lacrosse world concerning the return of Casey Powell to Major League Lacrosse last night, and for good reason. The 37 year old superstar has been a force in pro lacrosse (both indoor and outdoor) for years, and Casey showed no signs of slowing down in his 2013 MLL debut, and return to the league, after a brief retirement.
Note: Rhino Lacrosse is a proud partner of LaxAllStars.com As I pulled into the Saratoga Polo Association grounds in Saratoga Springs, New York, I couldn’t help but notice the incredibly green, never ending fields that surrounded the club house. Lacrosse players of all ages, parents, siblings, and coaches were scattered across the fields as far as […]
Powell Hour took over Saratoga Springs this past weekend as Casey, Ryan, and Mike put on a show for the crowd in this week’s Photos of the Week.
After nearly three years as the Director of Lacrosse at St. Andrew’s School in Boca Raton, Florida, Casey Powell is moving on. A story in the Palm Beach Post outlines the departure, and mentions that RJ Dawson will stay on as the boys’ coach at the private school.
