Where do I start? Most likely, if you are reading this piece, you know me from the lacrosse community or just in general, but I'll give a little background for those who are new here.

This piece will be focused on the lacrosse community but wraps around to all of those around me. The way I got into the lacrosse community was well a little different. I’ll get this out of the way, I didn’t play lacrosse growing up. I grew up in Odenton MD, right smack in the middle of Baltimore and Annapolis MD, with the only connection to…

Stars, Stars, Stars. Not the ones that we look up to in the sky but the ones that we look up to on the field and in our hearts. Lets be real, they control everything in all sports including lacrosse.

That wasn’t more evident than in the announcement on Monday that PLL star and co-founder Paul Rabil has been traded from Atlas LC to newly added and re-branded Cannons LC to finish his career with the team he started with in the MLL. This trade is much different than others in lacrosse in not only the fact that it is…

I, like a lot of you have grown into being a regular fan of the NLL(National Lacrosse League) and am happy to see the expansion of the league. Cities like San Diego, Philadelphia, Halifax and Fort Worth have all gotten franchises in recent years and they have done great so far!

In this piece I will discuss the places I’d love to see the NLL expand to.

  1. Baltimore- Let me just get this out of the way. Yes Baltimore is the closest major city to my hometown and I honestly think Baltimore would be a great market for an NLL…

Will there be a season? How much of a season will it be? Will there be a conference tournament? These are questions we still do not know the answers to. However, if and when there is a season the best players will continue to be the best players and shine above the others. Here I will give you a list of some potentials that could win the coveted Tewaaraton award.

  1. Michael Sowers(Duke)- We know where he stands in the history of the college lacrosse. Princeton’s All time Leading Scorer, over 300 goals, over 120 goals, you know the deal. Now…

What do you think of when you see the word “twitter”? When I see it, I think avenue, opportunity, expression and open dialogue. Having used twitter since I was around 13 years old, I was always aware of what it could do as far as bringing people together and rallying around things but I witnessed it firsthand when I pressed send on one particular tweet.

As a lot of you know already, I am in the pursuit of a career in the lacrosse industry. I live and breathe lacrosse(surprising considering I didn’t play right?). This particular tweet has been something…

If you’re reading this by now you know there was big news in the lacrosse world. If you’re new to the lacrosse world, I’ll give you the dumbed down version of why everyone and their mother is having heart issues according to their twitter accounts and my perspective on said merger.

So there was two lacrosse leagues, one being Major League Lacrosse, started back in 2001 in a city based model and which everyone who was good enough to be a pro played in up until the 2019 season. Then came the Premier Lacrosse League started by former MLL MVP…
