Stephen Cuccurullo of the Tenacious Turtles wins a face off clamp, pulls the ball out with one hand, and goes behind his back to keep possession. I am pretty sure I couldn’t do that! The ref is in the way, but the video should be slow enough where you can see the action. Pretty insane stuff from a kid who is still quite a few years away from playing in college.

Greg Gurenlian drops knowledge on us when it comes to selecting the best head for taking face offs. He’s got no brand bias, and gives you the two KEY characteristics you want in any head, if you want to be dominant at the X…
I caught up with Greg Gurenlian the other week to cover Team USA tryouts and his Face Off Academy camps and clinics. I also asked Greg to demonstrate the perfect pinch’n'pop face off move, and the Beast delivered, so much so that I think I could actually win a face off using this technique now.
I was out in Syosset, Long Island, recently and took in a FoGoLax.net camp. I’ll have more from the camp in the next week, but for now I wanted to share some great video I got from the session.

JP Masaryk is a rising senior (2014) from Fairfield Prep in Fairfield, CT and surprisingly, this Face Off prospect hasn’t committed anywhere yet. Late bloomer in the house? Perhaps! Check out the video of JP below, and tell me this kid doesn’t have some potential!
If you’ve ever wanted to learn the basics of taking a face off in lacrosse, this video should be a huge help. Dom gives you a bunch of things to try as a beginner. Now, to become great, it’s going to take some practice!
