The More Rabils The Better


Give this little mini-doc a spin and tell me you don’t think Paul Rabil is a great ambassador for the sport. In my humble opinion, he has done – and continues to do – a great job presenting himself and the sport to the masses.

We need more of him or other pros like him charging towards the mainstream.

Right now, in order for lacrosse to grow it’s mainstream media coverage, there is still something missing. Is it more players stepping up and pushing their stories to the media OR is it a believer or three behind the scenes at a big time conglomerate? Either one could lead to a lot of exposure for the lacrosse community, the MLL and the industry as a whole. The movement hasn’t happened yet but it will. And when it does, the game will spread like wildfire.

Having said that…

I’m excited to see the All-Star game on ESPN2 tonight. And I hope anticipation of “The Decision” doesn’t divert mainstream sports fans from watching lacrosse in HD. After all, the All-Star Game isn’t just an MLL thing… it’s a USA thing. That in itself is leverage for converting first-time viewers to passionate fans, right?

Got a question, something that deserves to be seen, or a hot tip?

Founder of Lacrosse All Stars. A West Coast native and product of the MCLA, I moved back East after college where I truly fell in love with the game. I've dedicated my career to LaxAllStars since 2010, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I now live in my hometown of Boise, Idaho, with my wife Zoë, two dogs, and a baby girl expected to arrive around Championship Weekend this May. I'm a technologist at heart, I'm not into snow or the month of January, and one time I kind of stole a football from Gary Gait. Life is crazy busy, but it's worth it when you get to immerse yourself in the medicine of lacrosse every day. We are on a mission to Grow The Game® on a global scale by empowering storytelling by players, for players, and bridging the gap between lacrosse and the mainstream.
