Whats up everyone. I know that it has been a while, but I have been sans computer for the last three weeks. Once school was over, I started my Trilogy camp circut and have spent the last two weeks in Austin and Houston, Texas with weekend stops in San Jose and Denver. I am finally home, even if it is only for a few hours. I got time to throw a load of laundry in spend some QT with Christie and Mason before I head up to NJ for the Dragons/Pride game tomorrow night.
So, the last few weeks of camp have opened my eyes even more to the growth of lacrosse in the non-traditional areas of the country. I have been going to Texas for the last three summer to coach kids at camp and this year I was blown away. The kids in Austin and Houston have really been working to be better players and in two years, I feel that a lot of these kids will be finding their way to DI rosters.
As for the Dragons, we are sitting at 1 and 3 and unfortuently I have not been playing. I wish I could give a reason why, or even knew why, but I am really not sure. I have been traveling and practicing with the team, and have done whatever I can to help the coaches and the younger guys, but it has been tough not getting on that field. Hopefully that will all end soon. Sadly, it wont be this weekend, but hopefully it will be soon…
Sunday starts another stretch of travel with four straight weeks of camp, I will try to check in. Have a good one and enjoy the summer.
