2009051_lbIt’s been a week or so since I checked in not much lacrosse going on since the playoff bye week. Has anyone been watching playoff hockey!? That’s what I have been doing this past week. Every game is end-to-end action. My team the Capitals won game seven in Washington, which was a huge win. The Caps’ next series is against the Penguins who they will dominate.

The NLL playoffs start this weekend.

Today (May 1st) we play the LumberJax in the first round of the NLL playoffs. The team is anxious to get back into action. We arrived in Portland today and in the team film session you could tell everyone is focused and ready to go.

The LumberJax knocked the Stealth out last year for the first round so tomorrow is a pretty big grudge match. Everyone knows that if we lose that there is no tomorrow. Portland always has a huge crowd of 9,000+ so it’s going to be loud and a very exciting environment to play in. This is my first time back in playoff contention since college, but now on a bigger stage.

This has been an up and down season and a long one for us, but I don’t want it to end tomorrow. Only three games stand between us and a NLL Championship. Hopefully after tomorrow there are only two games between the championship and us. Tune in tomorrow on NLL.COM at 7:30p.m Pacific, 10:30p.m Eastern to see us take on the LumberJax!!

Hey All Laxers, I trust that the New Year is treating you all well. It has been an event full past couple of weeks with the holidays, camp, and the first ever professional lacrosse game in Florida.
Between Christmas and New Years I conducted my first ever Florida Camp. I have been running camps for 8 years in Ilinois and New York but I wasn’t sure what to expect since this was my first winter camp, although it was 80 degrees. The camp turned out better than I hoped for with good camper turn out and a great staff.  Guys like Bo Lamon, Kevin Finneran, and Josh Etzion a two time HS All American who currently plays at Dartmouth help round up the staff.

January 3rd at the Bank Atlantic Center was a great night for lacrosse as the NY Titans battled the Toronto Rock in South Florida. The game was great as the Titans were nipped by the Rock. The game seemed to be a success as there was over 5,000 reportedly at the game. Perhaps with a little ground work you could see an expansion team in south florida.

Next up the season, start Jan 20th
