The now lacrosse-world famous @Lacrosseman is a hot name in the Stringing Community, and it is with good reason! Below, Lacrosseman hits up all Season 2 hopefuls with some String League Advice!
In Season 1 of String League Chris Wilson (aka the @LacrosseMan on pretty much all social media) brought a noticeably unique ability to meld creativity and functionality. His pockets were both beautiful, creative, and functional. It set him apart enough to beat the Final Five Contestants, and win the inaugural league title.
He was up against some serious competition. @Oldratlax and @Mclaxstrings provided ample competition for Lacrosseman week after week. Furthermore, there were 100’s of original entries to compete with just to get into the league! Through all of this, Chris Wilson continued to reign in the natural urge to make the craziest pocket ever seen, and instead he rode the thin line between aesthetic value, and functional purpose.
Due to the considerable difference in the overall popularity of Lacrosse outside of North America, I can say that there was not a judge on the panel who would have believed that a European would be the victor of Season 1… and we were all wrong. For each of us, it was great to see the game grow, and that is exactly what String League is about. Lacrosseman opened our minds to new ideas, and was a true champion of the game.
We caught up with last year’s winner to ask him how life as the reigning String League Champion was treating him. We asked him what helped him get to the top of the leader boards last year, and what his advice is for the Season 2 contestants.
