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!

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 […]

Better Behind The Back Face Off Video

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 […]

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 […]

Last Thursday, I threw it back to the 80’s, showing the highlights of the Aldephi lacrosse program, specifically when they took down Harvard.
