Hartford midfielder Carter Bender

On the challenges of playing: "Being a Division I lacrosse player is a big commitment. The skill of time management is most important. When it comes to team lifting, film sessions, extensive practice, extra work, class and homework, it leaves little time for a social life. If you love the game, you find a way to make it work." On being drafted by the Rochester Rattlers of Major League Lacrosse: "Being from Canada, I was born into box lacrosse and adopted field lacrosse later in my life. I grew up a die-hard Toronto Rock fan and just love the intensity of the [National Lacrosse League]. Indoor is a completely different game that is really easy to fall in love with."
