Who is Kevin Leveille? According to Quint, Carc, and Eamon, he’s the best American inside finisher ever, and Connor Wilson agrees. I agree too, and I think University of Michigan Assistant Coach Ryan Danehy feels the same way.

After a month off, TLS is back with a vengeance. Connor talks to two prime time guests in Kyle Sweeney and Drew Adams, and they talk about NLL, MLL, the upcoming college season, Tewaaraton favorites, US team tryouts, and more. Future versions of The Lacrosse Show will be airing on Wednesdays now, so keep an eye peeled to our YouTube channel!
This is a open letter from Morgan Crutchfield, editor of The Source e-magazine, to the US Men’s National Team. She originally authored this post on DVCCentral.com.
Lacrosse people are opinionated, and this is true when it comes to fans, writers, and yes, even TV announcers. Quint Kessenich (I’m a big fan!), Paul Carcaterra, and Eamon McAnaney do a great job with broadcasts, but they also say some rather interesting things from time to time, and here is where we sift through it all to find the hidden gems, and potentially missed points!
After watching the Team USA Blue-White scrimmage a couple of times now, I’m starting to overanalyze the 23-man selections I made before the weekend, so here is my updated team, based SOLELY on the action we saw on Sunday. It’s definitely a different list than what I came up with on Thursday!
The rosters have been set for the USA Blue and White squads at the ninth annual Champion Challenge, January 26th at the ESPN Wide World of Sports.
The lacrosse world championships traveled down under to Perth, Australia in 1990 but playing in the Southern Hemisphere didn’t do much to change the pecking order for national teams. Canada and the US obviously matched up for a great game and the video picks up the play with the US up 5-2 early in the second quarter.
The Iroquois are 2-1 agains the US in Bowhunter Cup games, and 3-0 against the US at the WILC. The Iroquois won last year’s Bowhunter Cup 12-10. The Nationals are sending out a relatively seasoned group of players, and they will have plenty of offensive fire power. The US is sending out a younger team, with good box pedigrees.
Craig Chase shot some great photos at the USA – Loyola scrimmage last weekend in Alexandria, VA, but some of them are even better in sets! A couple of great images from a big hit makes for a great GIF, and in this case, the hit is VERY clean, and from what we can tell, completely legal.
Do you have any guesses as to who is going to make the next cut for Team USA, and who will represent the red, white, and blue in Denver in 2014? We’ve heard some rumblings and rumors, but we want to hear YOUR opinion first!
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!
Chris Rosenthall went down to Alexandria, VA after my weekend box game to check out the Team USA fall scrimmages at the Play for Parkinson’s event, and got to catch up with Kevin Cassese, a Team USA assistant, and Kyle Hartzell, a Team USA hopeful! Check out what the insiders had to say about the recent try out scrimmages!
Welcome back to Monday Night Memories! Randy Fraser Remembered the Rough Stuff, and Brian Cost Got Rocked in our first two stellar editions of this series. This time around we’ve got a story from Anthony Kelly. John Grant Junior stole his helmet! It’s 2007, the US is playing Canada in the World Indoor Lacrosse Championships, and Anthony Kelly is about to learn a valuable lesson.
On October 5th, Team USA hopefuls will once again face a grueling day of lacrosse to decide who makes the team, and who gets cut. The 52 man roster has been split into 26 man “White” and “Blue” teams, and before taking on each other in an inter-squad scrimmage, the White squad will take on Loyola, while the Blue squad will face Towson. The games will be played as part of the Play for Parkinson’s Showcase on October 5th in Alexandria, VA.
You might not be one of the best 95 lacrosse players in the US (I’m certainly not), but Greg Gurenlian is, and he’s sharing an in-depth perspective on the US National Team tryouts, held in Late August.
