“Back to school. Back to school, to prove to Dad that I’m not a fool. I got my lunch packed up, my boots tied tight, I hope I don’t get in a fight.” That’s right. Connor Wilson is here to get you caught up on all the lax news going on as fall ball arrives.
On September 3rd, the NCAA announced its intention to experiment with instant replay during televised lacrosse games in the spring of 2010. Is the game of lacrosse conducive to this kind of technology?
Grab a snack and some liquids because our own lax guru Connor Wilson has taken a look at every single category for the 2009 “Laxies” and made his own predictions. There might not be a more comprehensive review of 2009 anywhere. Roll out the red carpet, Lax Nation, because we’re crowning the All Stars from all levels of lacrosse.
Nominate your school as we try to find out the best place to watch a lacrosse game in America. Think you’ve seen the craziest fans? The most ridiculous field? We’ve come up with ideas for our favorite student sections and places to see a game around the country.
A good friend of Lax All Stars’ is moving into the NCAA coaching ranks this upcoming season. His name is John Wright and beginning this week, he is officially on staff as an assistant coach at Pfeiffer University. Lucky for LAS, we get to follow him along as he to takes on this new challenge.
As the great Bob Dylan said, “the times, and the width of lacrosse heads, they are a-changin’. What will the new 2010 NCAA head regulations bring? Connor Wilson gets the conversation started in what is sure to be a hot topic on LAS all year long.
Two years after leading the Oregon Ducks to the MCLA National Championship game, Joe Kerwin has taken the helm once again. This time, he’s in Eugene to stay, he wants to bring the Ducks program back to the top, and he wants to help the MCLA grow.
The MCLA has made some big strides over the past 10 years, and that gap that separates the NCAA and MCLA is steadily diminishing. One example: The Houghton twins just transferred to BYU from the University of Denver, passing up the opportunity to be coached by Bill Tierney.
While perusing the youtubes recently, I stumbled upon this: the last 4 ½ minutes of the 2009 NCAA lacrosse championship between Syracuse and Cornell. This game had me and the rest of the guys at LAS on the edge of their seats, especially the ones at Gillette Stadium.
Beloved lacrosse manager and longtime Middlebury College friend, Myron G. “Peter” Kohn, 77, passed away on Aug. 5 at University of Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia, Pa. Kohn was one of the most beloved and unique figures in the lacrosse world. For more than 50 years he was connected to the sport.
The University of Denver might have scored the biggest coaching hire of the off-season when they signed Bill Tierney as their new head coach earlier this summer, but little did they know they were subscribing to the family package. This Friday the Pioneers added Bill’s son, celebrated goalier Trevor, to their staff. It was a natural move for the western most Division 1 program. Trevor has been living in the Denver area for a number of years now and has…
Lacrosse may be the only sport where one of the tips for success in the summer is “Don’t only play lacrosse because college coaches want multi-sport athletes… don’t burn out on lacrosse…relax and enjoy the summer”. Also, what about the classy duds for these two stallions eh? Great thoughts from Quint on non-hotbed laxers and a stellar suit for both guys. Who’s suit was better, Quint’s bodacious beige bomber or Dixon’s classy MSNBC-esque attire? Even in the boiling summer heat…
For most of my 29 years, lacrosse has been regarded as a fringe sport played by East Coast prep schoolers and Native Americans. Recently, lacrosse has really boomed and is one of the fastest growing sports in all age brackets and across both genders but at times, there is still a lack of mainstream coverage and interest in the sport. When a lacrosse highlight makes it onto Sportscenter’s Top 10, laxers everywhere rejoice. When there is a game on TV we often…
Like many other people passionate about the growth of lacrosse, I’m axiously waiting for the next school to make the jump and add a Men’s Lacrosse program on the NCAA level. The widespread growth of lacrosse up and down the West has become prime recruiting grounds for top East Coast lacrosse programs. The National Championship between Syracuse and Cornell was no different (2 players on Syracuse and 5 on Cornell played HS lacrosse on the West Coast). Because of the…
The summer is usually pretty slow and we manage to fill the time with tournaments, recruiting talk, movie news and funny videos or photos from the past year. One of the other major topics of discussion across the college lax would relates to the comings and going of head coaches. We have talked about Tierney going to Denver to replace Munro, We saw Voelker, formerly of UPenn, head over to nearby Drexel and we saw Bates go from Drexel to…
Jamie Munro left Denver, Bill Tierney left Princeton FOR Denver, Chris Bates then left Drexel for the recently opened Princeton job and now Brian Voelker (who was at UPenn) has moved on to Drexel. Is Munro going to head to UPenn to make the circle complete? Very doubtful.
The 2009 coaching carousel is still going strong as the University of Montana announced they will be losing the services of head coach Ryan Hanavan. Hanavan took over the Griz Lax program after a number of successful years at the University of Idaho, but has chosen to pursue a career opportunity earned by receiving a Ph.D. in environmental sciences.
Princeton has made their selection for their next Head Men’s Lacrosse Coach and I must say they chose (drumroll please)… wisely. Chris Bates is the perfect fit for Princeton. Let me count the ways:
Just a few weeks after the controversial release of long time head coach Jason Lamb, Brigham Young University has found a replacement in former assistant coach Matt Schneck. Two new assistant coaches have also been named: Jordan Harris (Defense) and Josh Austin (Offense).
