Tweet of the Week: Athlete First, Face-Off Man Third

Tweet of the Week

Welcome back to Tweet of the Week. See an awesome picture of gear or a hilarious comment on Twitter? Let us know by tweeting at us @LaxAllStars with #TweetOfTheWeek send us a link to the tweet on our contribute page!

While Twitter is usually a place for sharing news and links, it can also facilitate great conversations, 140 characters at a time. Such a conversation occurred surrounding one of Connor’s recent Hot Pot articles, which discussed the “Specialization Problem” and a possible rule to fix it. Faceoff Academy cofounder Jerry Ragonese was part of the conversation, and had this particularly standout tweet:

Players that take face-offs are being trained in this manner by many nowadays, and I think it’s definitely improving the game. While we might always have some pure face-off specialists, all lacrosse players should be athletes first, lacrosse players second, and enter position here third.
