Editor’s note: Please welcome GameChanger (and Tom Palasek) 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 Tom Palasek. Tom is from Rocky Point High School where he holds the record for points and assists. He’s graduate from Syracuse University. He played at both Johns Hopkins and Syracuse. Today, he plays in the MLL for the Atlanta Blaze.
He’s an MLL All-Star and he was part of the 2015 New York Lizards MLL Championship team.
I played with Tom for a few games on the Long Island Lizards. Tom is not only a great teammate, he’s also a great guy to be around as you’ll hear in this interview.
Today we got a chance to talk about how he made a huge jump in his playing ability. How other sports have translated into his lacrosse game, how he developing mental and physical toughness, how kids should think about finding the right college, and much much more.
