One man can accomplish a good deal on his own. With hard work and dedication, almost anything is possible, but it rarely comes easy. A team, or large group can accomplish much more, but that’s not always an option… Sometimes it’s just you and a friend. Let’s talk about The Power Of Two!
Wake up on Wednesdays to the Hot Pot of Lax. An interesting take on a current lacrosse topic coupled with news and links to top stories and the lax video of the week.
Decades ago, Open Tryouts for college lacrosse teams were much more common than they are now. A coach might have known that he was getting a couple of star players each year, but pulling athletes from the general student body was a time honored tradition, and one that yielded some excellent players and, eventually, some […]
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Fighting alone isn’t the biggest problem in box lacrosse. In my opinion, fighting is much more a symptom of a rough, and often under-referreed game, where players can take unseen liberties, and possibly inflict serious bodily harm through the pace of play. As it stands now, […]
Tucker Durkin’s high school highlight tape quickly became a thing of legend (at least in my mind) because of the sheer ferocity on display. Durkin thinks man first, and makes the opposition pay time and time again. If you haven’t seen it, it’s truly worth a watch or ten. He just knocks over everybody out […]
Lacrosse standouts at younger ages are often the bigger kids, or the best natural athletes, but that isn’t always the case… in fact, sometimes you see a kid who lacks BOTH size AND speed, and yet he STILL manages to impress. This is one of those cases…
With performance enhancing drugs running rampant in so many sports that we KNOW about, we have to ask ourselves, are PEDs here to stay? Performance enhancing drugs are ever evolving, changing, and improving.
Through CityLax, the volunteer coaches and players of NYC have created something truly special in Rooftop Lacrosse. They have given birth to a very real thing, that will live on for years. Rooftop was started on a whim, when an opportunity presented itself, and it has grown into something much bigger. What will you give […]
You know Con Bro Chill. But who is Connor Martin? In this week’s Hot Pot we take a look at the rise of Connor Martin.
A couple weeks ago, Connor talked about his least favorite word. Now why I might not agree that it’s my least favorite word, I definitely agree with all the points he makes, and wanted to expand on it from my own perspective in this week’s Hot Pot.
I have worked a lot of different lacrosse camps in my day. Big time instructional camps, team camps, and recruiting camps, I’ve seen them all. But nothing gets me more excited than a small lacrosse camp, with a high counselor to camper ratio.
It is the embodiment of consumerism, misguided priorities, and our cultural fixation on expensive toys instead of tested values. It is the ethos behind “look good to play good” instead of work hard to play well. It is, quite simply, all that is wrong with our society, and all that is wrong with the greater […]
The big news on ESPN, CNN, Fox, Deadspin, and a number of other sources today is the brewing performance enhancing drug scandal in Major Leagues Baseball. What makes me laugh in all this is that people are acting like this is some kind of big surprise… AGAIN.
Race is still an issue in lacrosse, and it always has been. But then again, race is still an issue in the US (and the world), so how could it NOT still be an issue in lacrosse?
This week’s Hot Pot tries to shed some light on how RIT Lacrosse got to be so tricky on the field. Maybe it was this crazy staircase on the Rochester Institute of Technology’s campus?
Lacrosse All Stars is putting the call out there to new programs from across the country, and around the world, to submit stories about their first year (or their first years) out on the field.
