In April, we introduced you to Kelly Curtis, the founder of the Northeast Classic. Today, she stops by to showcase the 2013 Northeast Classic that is set to go down October 12th and 13th.
Welles Crowther was a former Division 1 lacrosse player working in the World Trade Center on September 11th. This ESPN piece from Outside The Lines tells the heroic story of his life, and it’s simply something you have to see and hear to believe.
High quality NCAA Tournaments in the Fall are few and far between. That’s not to say there aren’t any in existence, but when the HEADstrong Foundation announced their new fall collegiate event for this October, it immediately jumped to the front of the pack, especially considering everything that will be going into this tournament.
It is the fall season, one of wonder and excitement. The Mann Cup is going strong, the NLL is still a ways off, and college teams are really starting to get down to business. Let’s take a look in at some of the teams across the country, and how they are prepping for the Spring of 2014!
After reading a recent Lax All Stars blog titled “Who Will Add D1 Lacrosse Next?” and the follow up post “Responding To Criticism From The Growth Blog”, Tony Lowe of Elev8 Sports Institute got to thinking of the reasons why big time sport schools, like Florida State and University of Florida, have not ventured into Men’s Lacrosse, while schools like Boston University, Richmond, Furman, Marquette, and Jacksonville have.
Last week, I published an article by Brian Conlon of LaxKingsTV, where he listed out four NCAA D1 teams that he thought would add D1 men’s lacrosse in the next six years. This is an ambitious project for anyone to take on, and there are a number of different approaches one could take. The Growth Blog took issue with Brian’s approach, and even called our journalistic integrity into question, which quite truthfully, I appreciate.
Who will be the next D1 men’s lacrosse team? It’s a question the entire lacrosse community has asked time and time again. When a new team is added, it tends to fuel the conversation. Brian Conlon, of LaxKingsTV, is back on LAS with his argument on why one of FOUR teams will be the next to go D1!
Kliff Kingsbury is now the youngest coach in the BCS, at only 33 years of age. He was the offensive coordinator at Texas A&M last year, and helped propel Johnny Manziel to a Heisman worthy season, so trusting his knowledge and approach should be a little easier, even if you’re an age-ist.
The World’s fastest lacrosse shot might not be held by Paul Rabil/ Kyle Hartzell anymore, don’t believe me? Watch it for yourself and check out the full story here!
Ever wonder what it’s like to be a D1 lacrosse player over the Summer? We check in with James Pannell, who just finished up his freshman year at Virginia, to see what these guys do, and it’s a lot of work, or just some well deserved pool time!
College coaches hit the recruiting trail hard over the Summer, especially in June and July. They line the side of fields in their fold out chairs across the country, and scout talent, and look for future players. When the action gets close, they get a great view, but also run the risk of getting trucked.
What does a Championship smile look like? Duke knows.
As we look back on the 2013 men’s college lacrosse season, one can see why this year was different from the rest. It was the year of the Underdog, and Lance Antoine loves it!
By now you’ve heard the big news: Denver has is joining the Big East, and Hopkins is joining the Big Ten for lacrosse. It’s huge news for the landscape of D1 lacrosse, and will have a number of impacts outside of the obvious. Let’s look at Conference Re-Alignment a bit closer!
The College All Traditional Team is back for 2013 and better than EVER! More NCAA D1 lacrosse players using traditional means a bigger team. See who made this all-star squad for the 2013 season!
At this point, you probably know that Rob Pannell won the Tewaaraton Award for the 2013 season on the men’s side, and that Katie Schwarzmann has won back to back awards on the women’s side.
A big topic of discussion this Spring has been the relatively low attendance at the NCAA Quarterfinals, and Final Four weekend. The usual outlets are offering the usual banal reasons, but doing little to actually think about what is going wrong here.
This week’s Reader Poll checks out the 2013 Tewaaraton trophy!
Sure, Cornell lost the game, but this shot is simply too remarkable not to watch over and over again. It’s called getting creative kids, and we love seeing stuff like this go down at the highest levels of the game!
Chris Rosenthall has been in Philly all weekend, taking in the games, and providing his thoughts on the weekend. Tommy Gilligan is in Philly shooting the D1 title game, and he got some amazing shots from Le Moyne’s D2, and Stevenson’s D3, title games yesterday.
