Welcome to Forum Friday! Everyday there are great conversations taking place in the LAS Community. If you haven’t signed up yet, make sure you do! And while you’re at it, you might as well watch this silly video update we created too. We hope it provides you with an easy way to connect with other lacrosse fans all over the world. This week we have another edition of Community Content! Don’t remember what that means? Rather than posting a question that has been asked in the LAS Community,…
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…
Ben DeLuca was dismissed as the Head Men’s Lacrosse Coach at Cornell University today. The school issued an ambiguous statement thanking DeLuca for his work (he was there for over ten years as a player and coach), and stating that the program needed new leadership. They then promoted assistant coach Matt Kerwick.
Since the fall ball season is wrapping up, I figured it would be a good time to reach out to see how the boys at Brown University are doing. Brown hosted some pretty unique scrimmages this fall, let’s see what’s going on with the Bears.
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.
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.
It’s only fall ball, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited for some excellent fall ball video! BHSVideoDad is back at it, and covers the big boys from D1 as they play a fall event in Kezar Stadium at the 2013 Fall Classic in San Francisco, CA.
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.
Last year was a very exciting year in Division 3 men’s lacrosse, with Stevenson winning their first ever championship. Aurora College in Colorado made their first NCAA tournament, and won a game. RIT beat Cortland with a hidden ball trick, and Salisbury was finally dethroned as the most dominant team in the South, if only for a season. As fall ball and training continues to roll, here’s a look at some of the top teams from last year, as well as a couple potential dark horses for 2014.
Follow Team England through the lens of English Filmmaker Guy Ellis as they travel the Northeast playing some of the nations best college teams! The English took on Dartmouth earlier this week, played UMass (above), take on Harvard tonight (7pm ET game is on gocrimson.com), and then play Brown and The Ambassadors on Friday in Rhode Island.
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!
This past weekend the Denver University Pioneers’ men’s lacrosse team faced off against the Denver Outlaws in a fall exhibition know as the Colorado Lacrosse Showcase. The current NCAA D1 powerhouse of the west squared off against their more experienced city mates from the MLL and came out on top 10-5.
The final stages of the English National Team selection process for Denver 2014 is nearing completion. To truly test the squad, and see who will make the final cuts, the team has come to the States to take on some top-notch collegiate, and club, competition.
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 dreams. Below you’ll find a brief excerpt of the article, followed by a link to the full thing in the SI Vault, plus a couple…
For this week’s tweet, Paul Carcaterra drops some knowledge on leadership, specifically on how to be a good senior leader.
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.
