I made it from the “Titan of Industry” party in Denver to the World Series of Lacrosse at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium where the Casey Powell World Lacrosse Foundation fielded an extremely competitive team.
Our program is making strides and we’re happy to be included in this select event but you would be AMAZED at who you can run into at this youth lacrosse extravaganza.
The WSYL is the brainchild of Jake Steinfeld – aka “Body by Jake” and we should all be grateful he brought it to reality. A select group of U13 boys lacrosse teams congregate in Colorado to compete for the Championship.
The level of youth lacrosse is mind boggling. This year’s World Series featured two teams from Long Island where I hear they take their lacrosse very seriously. This time around Tom Zummo’s Legacy beat Tony Alexander’s Igloo team for the trophy.
Don’t miss the highlight reel from the weekend’s Under Armour All-American matchup because the skill level is out of this world.
If you want to know which game holds the bragging rights for the weekend – the U13 Lacrosse World Series had five times as many viewers than the Under Armour All-American high school matchup. No matter who had more viewers – it all speaks to a growth filled future for the game we love.
Speaking of viewers – you haven’t lived until you play a lacrosse game at Mile High Stadium, home of John Elway’s Championship Bronco’s, in front of 28,772 rabid lacrosse fans.
The Florida Launch lost our road game (14-10) but it was a hometown win for every American in the Stadium that night. The combination of a massive lacrosse crowd and “bombs bursting in air” really made this a special Fourth of July weekend and gave proof to the night, that our flag was still there… Sorry, I love that song.
Back to business.
