Hello LaxAllStars nation! My name is Colton Raichl and I’m from Bend, Oregon. I started playing lacrosse in the seventh grade when the first Rhino camp came to town. That was the first time I ever held a stick, and I held it upside down.
Now, 7 years later, I play attack and am the team president for the University of Idaho Vandals Division One MCLA team. I have played every sport you could possibly think of growing up; from team sports like basketball, soccer, and baseball (pre-lacrosse era), to individual sports: tennis, golf, snowboarding, wakeboarding, and surfing. But none of them quite caught my interest like lacrosse did back in 2006.
Outside of lacrosse I like to just kind of lay low, hang with a few friends and play some video games. Some of the music I like right now is KiD Ink, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Mac Miller, Macklemore, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and some Jimmy Buffet. Wings by Macklemore is constantly playing on my iPod.
I’m a junior in the Greek system at University of Idaho studying Sports Psychology and Sports Media. Give me a follow on twitter (@ColtonRaichlLAS) and Instagram (Colton_Raichl3). I’m extremely excited to be a part of the LaxAllStars family and look forward to bringing you helpful and interesting content in the near future. Take a look at my video to see what I’ll be bringing to the LaxAllStars community.
