Michael Britt posted this video on our facebook wall and I’m going to pretty much let it stand on its own. I argued that US Youth Box Lacrosse is improving, and Jeff Matheson gave the old counterpoint, and said things were still the same. Then SwankLax and I got into a serious discussion on Twitter and all hell broke loose. Now we have 40 Minutes of MABLL action from the Mid-Atlantic area.
The MABLL has been around for years and is a training ground for a number of NLL hopefuls each year. The quality of American talent is relatively high lacrosse-wise, and the box action seems to get better year over year. It’s far from the NLL or MSL, but it’s not bad and getting better. So I still think US Box Lacrosse is making huge strides. They might not be perfect strides, but they are in the right direction!
