Myth Busted Refs Gordon Corsetti

Busting Rule Myths in NFHS and NCAA Boys Lacrosse

0 - Published November 6, 2013 by in College, High School, Youth

You hear really strange rule interpretations when working as a traveling lacrosse official. I listen to the most incorrect explanations of what the current lacrosse rules are at every level I officiate and every region I do games in. In this post I cover what I consider the Top 10 Rule Myths in NFHS and NCAA Boys Lacrosse and I bust those myths using the 2013 rulebooks for each respective level.

The World Needed Another Gordon Purdie

The World Needed Another Gordon Purdie

Last Thursday, I threw it back to the 80′s, showing the highlights of the Aldephi lacrosse program, specifically when they took down Harvard. It looks like the passion for lacrosse didn’t stop there, we were informed by big Gordon himself that there is another Gordon Purdie on the scene. His son, Gordon, is a 2015 product, tearing up the sport out in New York.

Minnesota is on board, are you? If you read my last article about the Jr. NLL, you probably noticed the guys dressed in the yellow honey comb jerseys. That would be the Junior Swarm and although they haven’t been playing lacrosse indoors for very long, the instruction and commitment they have received from Aime Caines, Ryan Benesch and the rest of the Swarm organization, is what I believe rocketed them to the top.

2016 Non-Hot Bed FoGo

0 - Published October 4, 2013 by in High School

Lacrosse in Missouri is definitely growing, but it has a long way to go before it’s considered a hot bed of recruitable D1 lacrosse talent. At this point in the state’s development, the above is to be expected, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t ANY D1 level talent in the state! To prove you wrong, I’d like you to meet Alex Bean.

Welcome to Throwback Thursday! Corey Robert sent in this great video featuring some high school lacrosse in New Jersey from 1975! Corey’s dad was the goalie for Boonton in the above game where they played Montclair from the State Championship. Montclair won in 1975, and Boonton took the title in 1976, with Mr. Robert still in goal.

Welcome back to Monday Night Memories! Last week, Randy Fraser detailed an insane box lacrosse brawl that he saw up close and personal. This week, Brian Cost joins LAS to detail how he got CRUSHED back in 2004, and how it was so very well worth it!

Hot Pot: National vs. Local Club Teams

0 - Published September 11, 2013 by in High School, Hot Pot

Someone recently posed this question to me: Are there national lacrosse brands? This question was asked in reference to club programs, specifically high school club teams, rather than to “brands” in the sense of gear manufacturers. So, are there “national lacrosse brands,” and if so, are they better than local club teams?

The Addicted Lax Dad: Past, Present, And Future

0 - Published September 10, 2013 by in High School

Lee Southren started the NJ Riot 2016 club team, and it is quickly morphing into something bigger. This growth has put Lee in a new position as the man running a club team. It is a big switch from being the man who is used to questioning club teams! Read about Lee’s experiences as a club administrator, and how it made him think of his own actions as an addicted Lax Dad.

Texas United, StickStar

The Summer with StickStar

0 - Published August 30, 2013 by in High School

This summer, I had the great privilege of being able to coach with the StickStar program based out of Texas. Being a part of this organization gave me a different perspective on the game and ultimately helped me to become a better lacrosse player and coach in the end.

Two-Handed Canadians? Oh No!

0 - Published August 29, 2013 by in High School

I’m not saying that Canadian players are always one-handed players, but more often than not they have a true strong hand, and a weaker hand. With Brent Noseworthy, that might be true as well, but I’m having a hard time telling which one is which! Is he a lefty or a righty? Honestly, I can’t really tell.

Box Lacrosse Player With HUGE Field Upside

0 - Published August 28, 2013 by in High School

Layne Smith is a 2015 attackman who also plays a whole lot of box lacrosse. He’s not the tallest kid in the field, but he’s thick (5’11″ and 195) and uses his strength and balance to his advantage very well. He also has a super stick, and finishes inside with a flurry of fakes.

Meet Mini Tucker Durkin

I love an overtly physical defenseman! Any good team can use a guy who is looking to bring the heat on hits, and when the guy can also play solid one on one defense, use his stick to move the ball, AND has a good lacrosse IQ, you have to think you’ve found a winner.

The Next Brett Queener: 2015 Goalie

0 - Published August 26, 2013 by in High School

When I say a player is the next Brett Queener, one must assume I’m talking about a goalie who makes big saves, but can also run the field, spark transition, and drop the occasional assist, or goal. One has assumed correctly. Hayden Walsh is a 2015 Canadian Keeper who plays for Edge Canada and he LOVES to push the ball upfield… at least that’s what his highlight tape says!

This 2015 Player WILL Be Good In College

0 - Published August 20, 2013 by in High School

I’m always looking for high school level highlight tapes where I am convinced that the player in question has a solid future in the college game. The player doesn’t have to be a top 10 D1 lock to get noticed, but they do have to do something special, like show an uncanny ability to finish, a high IQ for their age, a great set of defensive checks, or a goalie who shines.
