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.

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).
The Thompson Trio is certainly well-known in the lacrosse world at this point. But are they the most exciting players since Mike Powell donned #22 at Syracuse? Kyle Harrison seems to think so!
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 […]
College Lacrosse Upended by Albany’s Native American Stars.
Welcome to another College Lacrosse Video Explosion! We’ve got some SUPERB video from the D3 world (including a Wesleyan OT game winner), but that can be found over on the Cac to the Cac’s D3 Report! For all the rest of the college lacrosse video, stick around, we’ve got you covered!
StylinStrings caught up with three of the Thompson brothers up in Syracuse at the Wooden Stick Expo last month. The guys talk about their wooden sticks, the history of the game, and what it was like to see the documentary, The Medicine Game, unfold before their eyes.
Seeing as it’s Friday, everyone should be feeling good. Hopefully this video compilation of the Thompson Family’s ridiculous stick skills don’t make you feel too bad about yourself. If it does, get out there and practice. These guys are simply ridiculous.
The College All Traditional Team is back for 2013 and better than EVER! More NCAA D1 lacrosse players using traditional means a bigger team. See who made this all-star squad for the 2013 season!
Miles Thompson’s recent goal against Stony Brook is insane. He takes a look at the net, turns his back, pivots, and then just wails the ball at the net without looking, sticking it inside the pipe. If this were anyone else, we’d say they got lucky, but since it’s a Thompson, we want to know […]
Miles Thompson returns from injury and drops nine goals on Bryant in a win for Albany lacrosse. The Thompsons combined for 22 points in the game.
Miles, Lyle, and Ty Thompson displayed an uncanny ability to play with each other in Albany’s upset win over Syracuse. See their lacrosse IQ in action, and why it makes Albany instantly dangerous.
