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.
Miles Thompson was named Coke Player of the Game for the Rochester Rattlers this past weekend, and he did so on the back of a 5 goal, 1 assist effort. One Miles Thompson Goal was particularly amazing. When asked about why that night was special, Miles said his new traditional stick was starting to get […]
Many of you noticed that Miles Thompson had stopped using a traditional pocket when he joined Major League Lacrosse’s Rochester Rattlers.

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.

Miles Thompson made his Major League Lacrosse debut for the Rochester Rattlers this past weekend, and the 2014 Tewaaraton winner (along with his younger brother, Lyle) got going right away in MLL play, with a hockey assist on the first goal of his first game.

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!
After each year of NCAA Lacrosse rolls to a stop, we go through and find all the D1 players we can, who use traditionally strung lacrosse sticks. It can be a regular six or eight diamond pocket, a pita pocket, or something crazier… as long as it uses leather and string, it’s eligible!
