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 the electrifying year that was 2014.

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 program seems to be putting forth a really competitive team for 2014, and we’re all curious to see if they can do better than a 4th place finish, which is their best finish ever at a world field lacrosse championship.

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 Danes win 17-16 and need a last second goal just to make it to OT?

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. How does this video of Lyle Thompson (playing for Lafayette HS) only have 771 views?

Lyle Thompson casually throws a split dodge behind his back, makes another quick move, and then feeds the crease, where he finds his brother, Miles, who finished with a casual behind the back goal. When your stick is an extension of your body, and you play a ton of backyard lacrosse, these kind of plays become routine. For the rest of us, it’s simply amazing, but for the Thompsons? It’s just another day at the office.
