If you hadn’t heard, the NLL kicked off its preseason play this past weekend, and one city in particular seems very excited for the return of professional box lacrosse. What city is that?

We’ve got even more GREAT video from GetBenched! Check them out on YouTube and subscribe for more great old school box lacrosse video content!

The year was 1975. The NLL had just started up and the Philadelphia Wings were the most popular team in this brand new professional sports league. Greats like Jim Wasson, John Grant Senior, and the Lloyd brothers played in the league, the helmets didn’t have face masks and the sticks were all made out of wood. The shorts were also truly short.
Brett Manney comes out of nowhere for the Philadelphia Wings to snag a ball off the goal line, making what just might be the save of the year. Not bad for a shot stick defender!
