Re: Lax



new lacrosse blog.

In my day job I have to be "fair and balanced" as a lacrosse journalist, but at times in this gig, I'll be the total Baltimoron homer I was raised to be. After all, Maryland teams play the very best lacrosse in the world and I have made a living exporting it to the world for over a decade. I shoot lacrosse video wherever I go, so we'll include clips of the action with some of my blog posts and I'll post a video of the week for open discussion every Friday.

I have many friends in the lacrosse world who send me news, notes, rumors, pictures, etc., and I will share them with you here.

We'll discuss the industry, the pros, college lax, Maryland high school boys and girls, as well as youth ball, strategy, pockets, anything stick tech, lax history and culture.

I'll share my opinion on all things lacrosse here but want to start a dialog, so feel free to respond to anything you read or send me questions. Just keep it clean or it can't be posted.

I'll also be keeping a calendar of events, youth start-up dates and other lacrosse happenings, so please send any announcements to me here and I will gladly include them.
