Today we're talking about how to select the US Box Lacrosse Team for the 2015 World Indoor Lacrosse Championships (2015 WILC)! Some have speculated that the team is already decided, but with a year to go before the 2015 games, I find it doubtful. The time to select a team though, is now, so what's going to happen for the 2015 US Box Lacrosse team?

There are a lot of really nice old wooden sticks out there, and there are a number of stick makers who do fantastic work. Alf Jacques and Mitchell Brothers are two men who still make wonderful sticks today, but back in the day an Etienne Martin was another gem, and if you can find one of these oldies, scoop it up!

I spoke about the USCLA a couple of weeks ago, and I'm not sure that the true excellence of the game got through in my post. Thankfully, the fine fellas over at LaxSchool loaded up a video from 1999 featuring Duke Tobay LC and the Commonwealth/Brine Outlaws. Duke played in the Empire Division, and Brine was usually the top dog in the Yankee Division.

The Iroquois are 2-1 agains the US in Bowhunter Cup games, and 3-0 against the US at the WILC. The Iroquois won last year's Bowhunter Cup 12-10. The Nationals are sending out a relatively seasoned group of players, and they will have plenty of offensive fire power. The US is sending out a younger team, with good box pedigrees.

Randy Fraser was playing for the Boston Blazers in the 1990s, and when I found the above footage of a CRAZY MILL box lacrosse brawl, I knew I needed to get Randy's take on the video. It turns out he uploaded it to YouTube, and played in the game, so there really is no one better suited to regale us with a quality story!
