Editor’s note: Please welcome GameChanger (and Chris Rotelli) to LaxAllStars! GameChanger has developed an amazing new app called Team Manager, which we encourage every lacrosse team administrator to try. The folks at GC love lacrosse, and we’re pumped to have them on board as our partner. We hope you enjoy their podcast!
Chris Rotelli is from Rumford, Rhode Island. He played high school lacrosse at Moses Brown School where he was a three-time high school All-American and four-time All-State Selection. He graduated from the University of Virginia in 2003 as the most decorated midfielder is Virginia Lacrosse history.
Chis was a co-captain of the 2003 National Championship team. He also received the Tewaaraton trophy, the McLaughlin Award (the nations best midfielder), ACC Player of the Year, and a first team All-America accolades that season. He became the first lacrosse player in history to win the ACC Male Athlete of the Year, and was the first overall pick of the Major League Lacrosse draft.
Chris and Joe talked about how he made a name for himself while playing in an area of the country that’s not typically a hotbed for lacrosse, how he was able to make the transition from playing in Rhode Island to playing at UVa, and what it takes to become a great midfielder.
