Since I have not made any clear decisions on what the grand enigma of playoff success must be, I will defer to people with much more experience and success in this matter. It’s good to have friends who are smarter than you! Let’s take a small sampling of what it means to make a successful playoff push, from some of the best minds in the game.

There are a lot of camps and clinics for lacrosse nowadays, not to mention a ton of recruiting camps. If you’re interested in a new event that looks to be a truly elite one, make sure to read Connor’s interview with Adrenaline about their Black Card Showcase and Platinum Cup. But if you just want to know how to teach the game the right way in general, then look no further than the Beast for wisdom:
Of course the big news last week was that Adrenaline and LXM PRO had reached an agreement with Major League Lacrosse. There was a wide range of reactions to this, though the majority of people seem excited about the potential this deal has for impacting the growth of the game. Greg “Beast” Gurenlian, one of MLL’s best face-off men, had this hilarious comment about the MLL and LXM deal, and the possibility of Kyle Harrison’s return to the MLL.
Face offs have taken a couple of quantum leaps over the last number of years. There were always good face off guys out there, but the craft has never been practiced and studied as much as it is currently. Greg Gurenlian answered the call, and after we got through a little Faceoff Academy National Showcase recap, we got into some of the details on how the world of the face off man is rapidly changing.
We caught up with Greg Gurnelian and crew earlier this Summer at one of his Face Off Academy clinics in New Jersey, and later asked him some questions about the art of facing off, why he started the FOA, and what he thinks about the future of specialization at the collegiate level.
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.
You might not be one of the best 95 lacrosse players in the US (I’m certainly not), but Greg Gurenlian is, and he’s sharing an in-depth perspective on the US National Team tryouts, held in Late August.
