Throwback Thursday: MUST SEE Jim Brown Video

0 - Published March 6, 2014 by in College, NCAA

Way back in 1991 CBS Sports was covering the NCAA D1 Men’s Lacrosse Championship. They thought it would be a good idea to showcase Jim Brown, the lacrosse player, at halftime. They were wrong… it was a GREAT idea! Lax School brings you the full segment on Jim Brown’s days on the lacrosse field for […]

Throwback Thursday: Early Days of England Lacrosse

0 - Published March 6, 2014 by in International, Interviews

As Captain of the Men’s Lacrosse Team at Oxford I receive emails nearly every week from people who have at some point been involved in the Club. Recently I was contacted by Peter Higgins, who had been the Club Treasurer from 1952-1953, and I asked to meet him in person to talk about the game […]

“All-In!”…a NYC-LAX State of Mind.

That was the direct question from the lady on the subway platform of the 4, 5 & 6 trains in Manhattan with my pair of STX Goalmaster sticks resting on my equipment bag. It was 1989. There were only tokens, no MetroCards. Brooklyn wasn’t a “brand”. The Yankees were not known as winners. The Bronx […]

Last week we had UNC vs UVA for the whole enchilada that was 1986. This week, we’re going two days further back in time to see how UNC made it to the finals. How’d they do it? They knocked off legendary Johns Hopkins, that’s how!

Throwback Thursday: 1986 UNC-UVA

0 - Published February 13, 2014 by in College, NCAA

UNC edged Johns Hopkins 10-9 in OT in one semifinal, and Virginia took down Syracuse 12-10 in the other semifinal. This was the first year where semifinal games were played at neutral sites. Coincidence? Probably, but a neat historical note either way. This was also the first time two schools from the same conference faced […]

Throwback Thursday: Cortland vs. Hartwick 1989

At the :30 second mark of the video a Hartwick player stuffs a shot, fights for a GB, and then gets wrestled down to the ground. Today, parents and fans would be up in arms, and screaming for a penalty. There is a little bit of that in the audio, but a solid number of […]

Throwback Thursday: The Legendary Etienne Woodie

0 - Published December 5, 2013 by in Lifestyle

There are a lot of really nice old wooden sticks out there, and there are a number of stick makers who do fantastic work. Alf Jacques and Mitchell Brothers are two men who still make wonderful sticks today, but back in the day an Etienne Martin was another gem, and if you can find one […]

Throwback Thursday: USA – Canada 1990 Video

0 - Published December 5, 2013 by in International

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 […]

Throwback Thursday: 1980s Adelphi Lacrosse

0 - Published October 31, 2013 by in College, NCAA

Gordon Purdie is the Head Coach at NCAA D2 Adelphi, and a YouTube user with the same name uploaded a great video featuring Adelphi Lacrosse from the 1980s. We can only assume it’s the same guy! Either way, the video is awesome, and well worth a watch or two.

Throwback Thursday: The Original No. 22

Jimmy Lewis is, in my humble opinion, the greatest lacrosse player I know of. I had the luck and honor of being coached by his brother, John Lewis (an Adelphi legend himself) back in high school, so I may be perpetually biased when it comes to holding the Lewis family in such high regard.

Back in 1998, Sports Illustrated published an article profiling brothers Casey Powell and Ryan Powell as they led Syracuse University toward another successful lacrosse season. The article, written by Seth Davis and published in the May 5th issue, provides a great insider’s look at how both brothers inevitably came together to play at Syracuse and chase their […]
