Editor’s Note: Welcome to our new weekly series, Tuesday Tie Up! Each week, we will have a different lacrosse pro or personality talking about how they string up their head, and each post is brought to you by Epoch Lacrosse. Some of the pros will be stringing the Hawk head, and others will be stringing up their head of choice with Epoch’s Otter Mesh. Either way, you get to see how the big guns string their heads. You’re sure to learn a thing or two, so pay attention! We’ll let Epoch take it from here…
Casey from Lavin Lacrosse
Casey Mithun from Lavin Lacrosse visited Studio 22 at Epoch HQ to tie up The Hawk using a fresh slice of Otter Mesh.
Casey is well known in the Minnesota lacrosse community and has a reputation for being one of the best and most reliable stringers around. Many players will only go to Casey to tie up their game heads.
This video is of Casey Tying Up a prototype version of The Hawk. Casey was instrumental in helping with The Hawk during the development stages by providing critical feedback to various versions of prototypes.
We love the way Casey keeps all the strings organized around his neck while he is tying up. Casey brings so much creativity and consistency to his pocket designs, it’s exciting just to watch him work.
His pattern is key for a high pocket with just enough slack to still have great control with a one-hand cradle.
At the University of MN-Duluth, Casey was a prolific scorer who led the Bulldogs to multiple UMLL Championships and appearances at the MCLA Championship. Today, Casey coaches at UMD and Prior Lake High School, serving as the offensive coordinator for each team.
