It’s Friday and the news is coming in hot and heavy! So heavy that we had to create a Friday News Blast post, and we’re combining it with a Video Explosion. We’ve got new pro teams, big time pro lacrosse players retiring, a lacrosse-only college stadium for a big time D1 program, and much, much more! It’s go time. Let’s get right into this!
On Monday the NLL Draft will take place. Who are some of the top picks for 2014-15? Which teams have big holes to fill? Who is only going to get better with a new draft class? With only nine teams, the average talent level is already high in the NLL, who’s going to take it higher?
If anyone ever asks you if a lacrosse player has left college early to declare for the pros, you can now say, “yes, that has happened, and it was a D3 player from RIT named Casey Jackson, who left school and declared for the NLL Draft.”
Before there was the NLL, there was the MILL! Back in 1994 the New York Saints blew out the Philadelphia Wings and we’ve got the ESPN 2 broadcast!
With the second annual Jr. NLL Tournament set to get underway, excitement is in the air and soon enough 21 youth clubs, representing eight NLL franchises, will hit the floor at Toronto Rock Athletic Centre (TRAC) in Oakville, Ontario this weekend. As the first player in the youth’s program history to ascend to the ranks of a professional team, Law has truly begun to make a name for himself in the box lacrosse world.
Welcome to my new series Red, White and BOX!
Let’s throw this up front, box lacrosse is Canada’s game and I’m not going to deny that. Whether you want to call us renegades, wanna-be’s, or noobs, we don’t care, there is a small, but solid, core group of Americans who have experienced box lacrosse in one way or another and this is where we can band together to share information and successes of box lacrosse entities in the United States.
Inside The MLL made its debut in 2008, and LaxSchool has hooked us up with the second episode ever! They’re talking to Brian “Doc” Dougherty of the Philadelphia Barrage, and Kyle Harrison of the LA Riptide, and they’re also updating us on Week 1 results from 2008.
John Grant Junior just led the Denver Outlaws to their first MLL Championship with a Championship Game MVP performance to top off an outstanding season, and Casey Powell led the Florida Launch in their first year of existence – and the entirety of Major League Lacrosse – in points this year to be named overall season MVP. Have we gone back to the future?
The National Lacrosse League has announced the 2015 NLL regular season schedule. The 29th season of professional indoor lacrosse will open on Friday, Jan. 2 with the Buffalo Bandits visiting the recently-relocated Connecticut-based franchise at Mohegan Sun Arena.
For the newest episode of Connor Versus, I met up with Mitch Belisle nice and early in Brooklyn’s Fort Green Park, and we did 1-on-1 battle for Connor Versus supremacy. Can you guess who won this epic NYC title belt tilt?
Welcome back to our new weekly series, Tuesday Tie Up! Each week, we will have a different lacrosse pro or personality talking about how they string up their head, and each post is brought to you by Epoch Lacrosse. Today we’re tyin’ up with Ryan Benesch!
On August 23, 2014, the Denver Outlaws brought home the franchise’s first Major League Lacrosse championship after 5 title appearances in just 9 seasons. The winningest major league sports franchise in Pat Bowlen’s portfolio of teams, Denver is also the first professional lacrosse organization West of the Mississippi to ever win a championship. Branden Geyer hits us with awesome game photos and a full recap.
The city of Atlanta, aka Hotlanta, fell nowhere short of its reputation when it got its chance to host the 2014 Major League Lacrosse Championship Game.
Chris Rosentall recently tweeted something about this the other day, and he brought up the fact that both Casey Powell and John Grant Jr. both use orange heads. Why don’t more MLL players use orange sticks?
