Which High School Lacrosse Goal Is Crazier?

0 - Published April 11, 2014 by in High School

We got two kind of crazy high school lacrosse goals via the LAS Tipline last night, so we figured why not pit these two bizarre markers against one another, and see which one the people think is crazier! Both goals are pretty rare things to see, so we’re curious if one is weirder than the other!

With the proliferation of tournaments and showcase camps, elite level instructional opportunities have become more and more rare.

I’m not going to lie, I am VERY excited for tonight’s Albany vs. Johns Hopkins game on ESPNU (7pm ET). In my rabid fandom I searched for videos of the Thompsons, and while I came across a number of well known classics, I also found a hidden gem that has somehow slipped through the cracks. How does this video of Lyle Thompson (playing for Lafayette HS) only have 771 views?

Superb High School Lacrosse Video

0 - Published April 3, 2014 by in High School

A three minute highlight tape is better than nothing. Everyone gets to see some big goals and their attention span is not tested to any serious degree. When an 11:00 minute plus highlight comes out, it had better be good, and it had better feature two very good teams.

A decade ago, there were only a handful of truly elite recruiting camps and tournaments.
