Editor’s note: Please welcome GameChanger (and Lyle Thompson) 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!

Today on the show we have Lyle Thompson.

Lyle is someone who needs no introduction. He currently plays for the Chesapeake Bayhawks and the Georgia Swarm. He’s the record holder for most career points in NCAA history with 400 and assists with 225. He’s a two-time Tewaaraton Award winner. One of those times he was the co-winner with his brother Miles. He’s a two-time winner of the Turnbull Award for the nation’s top attackman. And this summer, he won a bronze medal with the Iroquois Nationals.

During this conversation, you’ll hear someone who, in his words, fell in love with the game. We got a chance to talk about how he studies defensemen, how he avoided bad habits as a young player, how he plays at different speeds, and much more. Here’s my interview with Lyle Thompson.

The GameChanger Lacrosse Podcast is about talking to people who have dedicated their lives to the game of lacrosse and learning about who they are, how they got to where they are today, and what they do to improve themselves and their teams. Be sure to follow us on twitter, @GCSports. And, if you’re a coach, a parent or you run a travel or club team, check out GameChanger Team Manager in the app store.
