Good Monday to all the Lax All Stars across the globe! With Tom and Peyton grappling for NFL legend status and Kanye and Miley battling for the controversy spotlight, I thought it would be appropriate to stay off the beaten path for another Music Monday.
Lacrosse isn’t just a game, it’s a lifestyle. Catch up on what’s cool here, and live the lax lifestyle everyday.
Welcome back to another Music Monday LAS! A few weeks ago LAS contributor Josh Rottman passed a video along. It’s a cover of Allen Stone’s “Bed I Made” by Jules Houts. Jules played at UC Davis along with Josh. I really enjoyed the cover wanted to share it along with a few other covers. Take a listen!

We’re back with a new Stick Trick Saturday. The first snowfall of the season hit Moscow, Idaho and a problem started arising that is prevalent in cold conditions, cold hands. Cold hands can cause many problems for stick handlers. These drills will work on your hand speed as well as keeping them warm, loose, and ready for the conditions. Welcome, “The Hand Warmer”.
Mike Wardian has what it takes to be a champion – he had it as an attackman in 1992, and still does as ranked ultra marathon runner today.
This week’s Tweet of the Week is brought to you by Coach Peter Tumbas through his club program, American Revolution LC, and it’s a reminder that fundamentals are vital to success.
Welcome to another mobile game review! Over the Summer we took a look at Brine Hotshot, and today we have a similar game: Flick Lacrosse LITE from Crosse Studios. In this game, there is only one level, no extra gear, and no in-game leader boards…but in the end it turns out to be the the more fun game when you just pick up and play. How is that possible you ask? Read on to find out!
Sergey Baklykov has been all over these Huarache spottings in the NFL! Here’s another one for Greg Toler – they’re his second pair of Breast Cancer Awareness Huarache 3s.
To close out your Monday, we’re coming through with a great new reggae-rock album by Georgia’s own Passafire. This band formed back in 2003 when a bunch of college kids got together and started experimenting with their sound, which has evolved into something on the edgier side of that chill alternative beach sound.
Sol (Sol Moravia-Rosenberg) is a hip-hop artist based out of Seattle, Washington. His understated lyrics, exuberant performances, and diverse instrumentation have solidified him among the leaders of the northwest music scene. Last year, he released his first independent album, Yours Truly, which quickly rose to #1 on the iTunes US Hip-Hop Chart. Sol then decided to leave the United States on a ten month globe-trotting hiatus as part of the Bonderman Honors Travel Fellowship he was awarded at the University of Washington. Ten months and ten countries later, Sol returned to the United States, evolved and inspired. Now equipped with a world of perspective, Sol is ready to share his newest project, Eyes Open. If you haven’t caught wind of Sol’s music, you’re in for a treat.
The first two installments of this “Concussions in Lacrosse” series detailed what a concussion really is and why we should care about them. We covered a number of potential consequences of concussions (Post-Concussion Syndrome, Second Impact Syndrome and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) to outline why it is important to pay attention to them and protect ourselves.

Saturday is here and that means it’s time to work on those stick skills. In the past we have had some kind of either stick flips or sidewall stalls. This week is a little of both. Take a peek at the trick this week called the spin cycle! Remember to master the basics of the trick before trying all of it.
It was not easy, but we have chosen the winner for the Epoch Lacrosse breast cancer awareness shaft giveaway contest. The LaxAllStars gang had a hard time selecting a winner, but Parker Nolan is the lucky recipient of a new Dragonfly from Epoch.
