Show LAS Your Old School: 1998 Texas GTG Video

This week we have a glimpse of the infancy of the game in Texas as TV newscasters were still getting used to this whole lacrosse thing. Plus a special call for more Old School submissions to keep the series alive.

Editor’s note: The Old School submissions have dried up and this series needs YOU to keep it going. Got something to share? Email with “OLD SCHOOL” in the subject to keep the memories alive.

There’s nothing we love more than having a true Grow The Game moment to share with the masses.

To that point, Here is some 1998 video showing how new lacrosse was to Texas and especially the sportscasters who had trouble describing it to the masses.

As great as the bucket helmets and football practice jerseys were back in the day, the sportscasters in this clip did their best to take the shine off.

Did he just say "LACLOSS"?
"The subject is to carry the ball and put it in the net more than the other guys."

Now, I’m not trying to be mean-spirited but seriously? These sportscasters looked and sounded like they went to the “Boom goes the dynamite” school of sports journalism.

Thankfully, we know the game in Texas has been booming since 1998. Keep that Grow Texas Lacrosse train rolling, fellas.
