Matt Abbott: Game Changer

Matt was a former teammate of mine at Syracuse. It was great to catch up with him. We got a chance to talk about how he thought about choosing the right school, controlling what you can, overcoming an off year and much more.

The GameChanger Lacrosse Podcast is about talking to people who have dedicated their life 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.
