We had Kyle Sorenson of the Vancouver Stealth on The Lacrosse Show last night and we grilled him on the new NLL rule changes, what it takes to win in the league, his stick set up, the new Under Armour gear and deal, and a ton of other interesting stuff! We also talked MLL, NCAA, LXM, and FIL Lacrosse…

The production value of the video above doesn’t hurt, but what’s really good about it is the skill on display from attackman Jason Kelly of Salesianum Lacrosse. He’s got a strong left hand, good size, and a nice ability to parlay that size, speed, strength, and skill into tons of solid scoring chances. He also buries the ball pretty well, and finds open teammates nicely.
Some college lacrosse programs have a YouTube page just for the team, and then there is Notre Dame. NDLaxTV takes college lacrosse video to the next level on a pretty regular basis, and The Irish offer up training tools, drills, video from games, short documentaries, and more. But their latest project? It’s another big step up, and in the right direction.
Brown hosted both the Sankofa Lacrosse Alliance “Ambassadors” team, as well as a team of English National squad hopefuls for three one hour scrimmages. See the excellent photos below from Greg, and expect much more on this interesting event early next week.
This past weekend, St. John’s and Harvard traveled to West Point for a little outside scrimmage action. Fall ball is all about getting better, implementing fundamentals, working in new faces, checking out new gear, and most importantly, just playing some lacrosse!
Did you enjoy Hopkins destroying their alumni team, by an ungodly almost 30 to 2? Looking for a slightly more competitive fall video? Hopkins vs Fairfield has you covered! YouTube user huntva is killing it with fall video. Thank you!
Harvard Lacrosse put up some highlights from their Black – White inter-squad scrimmage, and it’s a great primer for their upcoming scrimmage with the English National Team hopefuls. The Harvard – England game will air LIVE on Harvard’s YouTube channel on October 22nd at 7PM, and that will serve as a great primer for the Brown vs England vs The Ambassadors game in Providence on October 25th.
Providence College is currently one of many D1 lacrosse programs working and hoping to make the jump, and we got a great look inside the PC program, to see how they are going about making change and improvements. Tommy Gilligan shot the PC campus and their alumni game (awesome photos below!), and CW got to speak with Head Coach Chris Gabrielli.
Did you miss this video of the recent Johns Hopkins alumni game? If you did, it would be a shame, if we didn’t have it here for you to take in! But we do, so don’t fret.
More excellent fall ball highlights out of Vermont? You know it. First we had UVM vs the Hill Academy, then we got UVM vs Bishop’s (Canada), and now we get Vermont vs Holy Cross. I’ll take it any day of the week.
Johns Hopkins defeated Virginia 9-8 (in overtime) in the 1980 Division 1 Men’s Lacrosse national championship game. The game was played at Cornell University in front of over 10,000 fans. Jeff Harris scored the OT game winner for Hop, and the goal was assisted by Jim Bidne. This was Hopkins’ third straight national title in men’s lacrosse.
Mike Perrino plays lacrosse at Canisius College in Buffalo, NY, and in his spare time, he has started to edit together highlight videos. Mike took some absolutely unreal shots from the last couple of college seasons and threw them together in the above video. I think every goal in the video is at least a 9 out of 10.
Team USA Blue took on Loyola at 2pm on Saturday as part of the Play for Parkinson’s event in Alexandria, VA. Loyola also scrimmaged against Georgetown, and we have photos from that fall game as well. Photo gallery by Craig Chase!
Craig Chase took in the recent Loyola – Georgetown scrimmage, and came away with a ton of great photos of both the Hounds and Hoyas. Loyola took on Gtown at noon this past Saturday at the Play For Parkinson’s Event in Alexandria, VA. Right after this scrimmage, the Hounds took on Team USA Blue.
After reading a recent Lax All Stars blog titled “Who Will Add D1 Lacrosse Next?” and the follow up post “Responding To Criticism From The Growth Blog”, Tony Lowe of Elev8 Sports Institute got to thinking of the reasons why big time sport schools, like Florida State and University of Florida, have not ventured into Men’s Lacrosse, while schools like Boston University, Richmond, Furman, Marquette, and Jacksonville have.
Last week, I published an article by Brian Conlon of LaxKingsTV, where he listed out four NCAA D1 teams that he thought would add D1 men’s lacrosse in the next six years. This is an ambitious project for anyone to take on, and there are a number of different approaches one could take. The Growth Blog took issue with Brian’s approach, and even called our journalistic integrity into question, which quite truthfully, I appreciate.
Kliff Kingsbury is now the youngest coach in the BCS, at only 33 years of age. He was the offensive coordinator at Texas A&M last year, and helped propel Johnny Manziel to a Heisman worthy season, so trusting his knowledge and approach should be a little easier, even if you’re an age-ist.
Ever wonder what it’s like to be a D1 lacrosse player over the Summer? We check in with James Pannell, who just finished up his freshman year at Virginia, to see what these guys do, and it’s a lot of work, or just some well deserved pool time!
College coaches hit the recruiting trail hard over the Summer, especially in June and July. They line the side of fields in their fold out chairs across the country, and scout talent, and look for future players. When the action gets close, they get a great view, but also run the risk of getting trucked.
As we look back on the 2013 men’s college lacrosse season, one can see why this year was different from the rest. It was the year of the Underdog, and Lance Antoine loves it!
