John Grant Junior just led the Denver Outlaws to their first MLL Championship with a Championship Game MVP performance to top off an outstanding season, and Casey Powell led the Florida Launch in their first year of existence – and the entirety of Major League Lacrosse – in points this year to be named overall season MVP. Have we gone back to the future?

The lax world is talking about a new John Grant Jr MLL Record, and it has to do with him passing Kevin Leveille as the all-time leading goal scorer in Major League Lacrosse. Junior entered the game with 276 goals, and needed just one to tie Leveille at 277. Instead, John Grant Jr dropped four goals (and four assists!) to move to 280 total goals, and set a new MLL record.

Floridafication of Launch Continues: Powell & Fullerton

0 - Published December 4, 2013 by in Major League Lacrosse

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.

TBT: The Best One-Two Punch In College Lacrosse

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.

Hot Pot: How To Spend 10,000 Hours

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.

Tweet of the Week: MLL Championship Edition

0 - Published August 29, 2013 by in Major League Lacrosse

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.
