The America East Conference received a lot of attention in 2014, thanks in large part to the success of the Albany Great Danes and the Thompson Trio. We take a look at what 2015 has in store!

Lacrosse Magazine, the flagship publication of US Lacrosse, has named the University at Albany senior attackman and Iroquois Nationals All-World Team member Lyle Thompson its 2014 Person of the Year.
If this isn’t the most visually appealing, impactful and all around informative documentary focusing on the Iroquois Nationals, then I have no idea what is. U-verse does incredible work when it comes to lacrosse, they did a fantastic job with their piece on John Tavares that they did earlier in the year, I just wish […]
For those that don’t know, the Thompsons play lacrosse together all summer long. Just when you think you couldn’t get enough of Jeremy, Hiana, Miles and Lyle, you get even more! Don’t miss their complete takeover at the 2014 President’s Cup.
I know you know this, but the Thompson Trio changed lacrosse this season. Brothers Lyle and Miles, along with cousin Ty, dominated opponents and highlight reels by being one of the most electrifying offenses in lacrosse history. The two brothers from the Onondaga reservation in Upstate New York changed many people’s views about lacrosse after […]
What is a Thompson Target? You’re about to find out! This isn’t just ANY plywood board, this board has a small HOLE in it, and that makes it a Thompson Target.
With the World Championships just over a month away, it’s high time to start looking at some of the top contenders a lot deeper. While the US and Canada are still the clear cut favorites, and Australia has had a lock on the bronze (or silver) since the WLC inception in 1967, the Iroquois Lacrosse […]
Check out the 2009 New York State Class C Championship video below and watch Lyle’s 23-0 Lafayette Lancers take on the 19-1 (and #3 seed) Manhasset Indians. Manhasset wins the game 16-11, and the Thompsons weren’t the only greats playing in this one!
Welcome to the Tuesday Super Post! I’m rethinking some of my picks, addressing some of the BIG ISSUES in this year’s playoffs, AND hitting you with top notch video! It’s good, it’s so good. It’s playoffs in May good!
The first thing you notice about the young men known as the “Thompson Trio” is their superior skills on the lacrosse field. Brothers Lyle and Miles Thompson and their cousin Ty are all starters at the University of Albany. But that’s not what makes them most proud.
Lyle Thompson is about to add to the new single-season points record in college lacrosse this weekend, and his brother Miles is only a few points behind him. Of course cousin Ty is a shooter on his own, and the Thompson Trio take on Loyola in round one of the NCAA playoffs this weekend. Read […]
Albany goes down 4-0 to Stony Brook, and then the Thompsons start scoring and things change quickly. We go from upset alert to straight up battle, with #1 seed Albany eventually winning out. You want behind the back goals? You want awesome dodges and passing? You want a game that goes to OT where the […]
Ty Thompson is ready to blow your mind with this goal in a clutch win over rival Sienna.
Albany took down Stony Brook 17-7 this week, and the Thompsons were back to their old tricks, scoring at will, and making the rest of us look like average lacrosse players. This win was huge for Albany because it wrapped up an America East tourney bid for the Danes (they are 3-0 in conference).
I’m not going to lie, I am VERY excited for tonight’s Albany vs. Johns Hopkins game on ESPNU (7pm ET). In my rabid fandom I searched for videos of the Thompsons, and while I came across a number of well known classics, I also found a hidden gem that has somehow slipped through the cracks. […]
