This week on an all new X-Treme Threads Lacrosse Classified, Jake & Evan recap week 18 in the NLL and discuss the importance of faceoffs in the NLL. Also Evan continues to expand his lead in Stampede Tack #WhoYaGot.
Our first guest is the head coach and general manager of the Saskatchewan Rush, Derek Keenan. Keenan, who up until recently held the rookie scoring record, has won three NLL championships in the last four years, and has also won general manager of the year and the Les Bartley award for head coach of the year three times each.
Our second guest is Matt Sawyer, head coach of the Toronto and Oakville Rock. Sawyer, who hails from Orangeville, Ontario has won three Minto Cups as a head coach and two as a player. He has been the head coach of the Rock for the past three seasons.
Then to wrap things off it’s another round of Stampede Tack #WhoYaGot with time running out for Jake to make up the seven-game gap between him and Evan, and we discuss the playoff scenarios in the NLL heading into the final two weeks.
