When it was announced that the LXM PRO and the MLL would partner up, and that players from both camps could now play in both leagues, there was a lot of talk of who could “make the jump” to Major League Lacrosse. A range of opinions were offered as analysts tried to decide who could cut the mustard, and guesses ranged from up to 6 players to as many as 20.

Markbuster Videos! Markbuster Videos, long live Matt Russell… The great Matt Russell, goalie for Team STX and formerly at Navy, has decided to call it quits. I watched the broadcast of Matt’s final game on The Lacrosse Network, but honestly, I don’t remember ever hearing about Matt hanging it up. I had the chance to […]
LXM Pros Erik Krum, Shamel Bratton, Matt Russell, and Peter Baum discuss their own upbringings in the sport, including the experience of getting recruited and turning pro, and the apparent differences in the sport of lacrosse when it comes to East Coast versus West Coast.
The Ohio Machine have gotten an LXM infusion. Kyle Harrison was picked first by the Machine in the special Major League Lacrosse waiver wire process opened to include LXM Pro Tour players after the deal announced Feb. 13 between MLL and Adrenaline that allowed LXM players to play MLL and vice versa.
No more of this either or mess, as the LXM and MLL have finally come together to unify professional field lacrosse. Time to let a player play; if you can cut it, you can take your services to both pro leagues, just the way it should be. Rosie drops his thoughts on the new situation.
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.

With the 2013-2014 LXM PRO season having wrapped up a few weeks ago with a final stop in Los Angeles, the 2014 NCAA lacrosse season now underway, STX becoming an official Major League Lacrosse partner, and now Adrenaline and LXM PRO joining forces with the MLL, I can’t help but wonder who the next LXM star will be.
Tom Garvey gave me an older STX Proton+ from his days at Johns Hopkins and he wanted a pocket thrown in there so he could either use the stick while coaching or put it on display. I decided to up the ante a little bit and throw in a second head, which I dyed to resemble the Hopkins head in style, to commemorate his time playing for Maverik United in the LXM PRO.
A few weekends back, I spent the entire day outside of Los Angeles for the final LXM PRO event of the 2013-2014 season. With the event also came the final Adrenaline tournament of the year. But what is it that keeps bringing teams back to ADRLN tournaments? Here’s what players and coaches have to say.
During halftime of the LXM PRO 858 event in San Diego, I caught a glimpse of a pretty spectacular commercial. ADRLN released their first player spotlight video on Maverik United’s leading goal scorer. Take a deeper look in to the world of Erik Krum.
Well the feeling is bittersweet, the 2013-14 LXM PRO season is now officially behind us. Now it’s time for the boys to go home and train for the next season, and probably do a little coaching in between. We are sure a ton of you tuned in to this weekend’s action in Los Angeles with hopes of winning a brand new LXM PRO replica helmet from LaxAllStar’s parter Cascade!

Tomorrow’s LXM PRO Los Angeles event marks the final game of the season for the LXM PRO. In Connor’s preview of the game, he takes a look at who the league scoring champ might be when all is said and done. One of our LAS Community members was thinking along the same lines, wondering who you’d pick for the LXM PRO season MVP.
LXM PRO 858 in San Diego was a thriller last weekend, with Team STX edging out a 16-15 win over Maverik United on a Max Ritz goal with two seconds left. Earlier in the game, Sam Bradman put Team STX on his back with four first half goals, including what was just about the most beautiful low release shot I have ever seen. It was an on the run riser, and Kyle Harrison definitely appreciated the shot as much as I did.
