Chris Kolon – Going Offsides

This week we start the episode by talking about the biggest news in our sport, the PLL/MLL merger. If you didn’t hear about it on Wednesday, Ryan Conwell wrote a great piece that can fill you in on everything we know and makes some educated guesses as to what may be in store moving forward. You can read that article here: A Deep Dive into the PLL & MLL Merger . After discussing the “merger” we immediately pivot and welcome our featured guest, Chris Kolon. Chris is a proud Rutgers alum, former Atlas LC assistant, and currently the head men’s coach for the University of Detroit Mercy (he also gave me my fist job in college lacrosse many years ago). Chris and I talk about building culture, recruiting, Michigan high school lacrosse, and being a part of PLL’s inaugural season.

Last Week:

We welcomed NLL player and all-around good guy Latrell Harris. Latrell talked about his journey from playing high school lacrosse to being drafted at just 18 years old by the Toronto Rock. Now he is entering his 5th year in the league and looks to build on previous success. To learn more about Latrell you can follow him on social media or read more about him through the LAS series of articles:
