Respect My Authority!

0 - Published January 6, 2014 by in College, High School, Youth

Coaches, players, and fans often compare sports referees to police officers when explaining the authority that a referee has over a game. While it is an easy comparison to make, everyone who makes it seriously understates the amount of authority that a referee actually possesses.

Beginning with the 2014 lacrosse season, Valley will no longer be the only boys’ high school lacrosse program in Central Iowa. Skyhawks Sports in conjunction with the Ankeny school district will sponsor a second club team in the metro’s northern suburb. Like Valley, the team will compete in the Nebraska High School Lacrosse League.

Peter Tumbas is back on LAS and he’s talking about recruiting events, players who impressed, and a whole lot more down the line. In this post, Tumbas took in the NXT Philly Freshmen and Senior Showcases, and now he names some players who impressed!

412 Report: MVP Lancaster

0 - Published November 25, 2013 by in High School

The inaugural MVP Fall Exposure was held at Manhiem Township in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. It’s an incredibly smart choice for a venue simply because the school had four turf fields. FOUR TURF FIELDS! Despite grey skies all day, the rains held off and teams from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, New York, and Virginia competed in three games each. These are not necessarily the best players at the event, but rather the players that captured our attention in one way or another during the games that we saw.

Registration is now open for the second annual Saratoga Lacrosse Shootout. The 2014 Shootout features youth boys’ competition in grades 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, and High School A and B divisions. We thought it would be a good idea to ask Rhino himself some questions about the 2014 version of the event, and of course, Ryan Powell obliged!

Better Behind The Back Face Off Video

I’m pretty sure this will never become super popular amongst college players or coaches, but for the kids who really hone their F/O craft, it’s impressive, and adds another level of challenge to winning a draw. This time around it’s Kieran Lee, a 2015 player out of Pine River HS in New York. Like Stephen Cuccurullo, Lee is also a FoGolax.net product.

Size, Speed, Skill: Jason Kelly ’14

0 - Published November 18, 2013 by in High School

The production value of the video above doesn’t hurt, but what’s really good about it is the skill on display from attackman Jason Kelly of Salesianum Lacrosse. He’s got a strong left hand, good size, and a nice ability to parlay that size, speed, strength, and skill into tons of solid scoring chances. He also buries the ball pretty well, and finds open teammates nicely.

Club teams from Canada, the West Coast, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and several regions descended upon Annapolis during the second weekend of November for UP Lax. I took in the games, and while the players listed below are not necessarily the best players at the event, each of them captured our attention in one way or another during the games that we saw.

Ever Seen A Behind The Back Face Off?

0 - Published November 16, 2013 by in High School

Stephen Cuccurullo of the Tenacious Turtles wins a face off clamp, pulls the ball out with one hand, and goes behind his back to keep possession. I am pretty sure I couldn’t do that! The ref is in the way, but the video should be slow enough where you can see the action. Pretty insane stuff from a kid who is still quite a few years away from playing in college.
