Author’s Note: Our longtime friend and lacrosse ambassador, Kyle Harrison, has been pulled away from playing for the first part of 2017 to take care of a nagging injury. Luckily STX was there to show us how Kyle travels ‘The Road Back’.
A persistent ankle injury has been a thorn in Kyle Harrison’s lacrosse career off and on since 2014. Thinking it was normal wear and tear, Kyle put off the injury until after the 2016 MLL season. Unable to get the performance out of his ankle he was used to, and under intense pain, he made motions to get himself fixed up. This means stepping away from the field for the first part of 2017.
STX followed Kyle’s journey through surgery, rehabilitation, and The Road Back to MLL playing time. The first two episodes dropped over the past month, giving us a first-hand look at what a professional lacrosse player has to go through to compete at the highest level.

The Road Back: Episode 2
Not letting the process keep him from contributing to his team, Kyle’s been all over the Ohio Machine sideline, providing wisdom and meshing with his team. Look for the next episode of The Road Back and Kyle returning to the field in the coming weeks.
