Eli Gobrecht: D1 or Bust, Life as a Pro
Eli Gobrecht is the product of D3 Ithaca College, and he’s damn proud of it. His time at Ithaca prepared him, although be it through an untraditional path, for life as a pro lacrosse player. In this week’s episode, he sits down with the guys from Going Offsides to discuss what it’s like being a “full-time” professional player and what exactly that means.
Later in the show, Eli talks about the D1 or bust mentality that a lot of recruits have and if that attitude is good for lacrosse. We also hear his opinions on the PLL/MLL merger, having been one of the first MLL guys to transition after the first PLL season. Eli Gobrecht is incredibly grateful for his time playing in Denver but was attracted to the aggressiveness and progressiveness of the PLL.
