College Lacrosse Recruiting

This week I did a Phi-Lacrosse-ophy Podcast with Ty Xanders, Director of Recruiting and HS content for Inside Lacrosse and one of the foremost experts on college lacrosse recruiting.

It was an incredibly interesting conversation about how the pristine, unadulterated class of 2021 has become the most under-evaluated class in the history of college lacrosse recruiting.  Why? There are simply SO man players and SO many events, it was not possible for coaches to know all the talent over the course of June and July.  Unlike in years past, coaches really didn't start paying attention to the 21's until last fall (which is .  

Even more challenging is the fact that many programs actually try to see everyone!  Watching first half on this field, 2nd half on that field and check the boxes...

Phi-Lacrosse-ophy Podcast

I had the pleasure of chatting with UMBC Head Coach Ryan Moran this week on my podcast and it was awesome!  He is an amazing guy with incredible experiences, mentors and vision.  Ryan is a classic "Coach's son" (and nephew) and is building the Retrievers into something special!  Listen to Ryan talk about his coaching journey, the ways he teaches decision making, offensive philosophies and much more!  This is an awesome listen!

Coaching Defense

Last week I had an amazing conversations with Ed Glazener and Matt Landis, formerly of Notre Dame Lacrosse and current defenders on the PLL Redwoods.  These guys along with Garret Epple trained under Gerry Byrne, current Harvard Head Coach and are defensive geniuses!  I am a self proclaimed "Disciple" of Gerry Byrne and I was super...

Virtual Lacrosse Summit 

Last week we ran the fourth Virtual Lacrosse Summit of 2019 and it was awesome!  There will be free replays of all summit talks coming up next week, so keep an eye out for the email!

It's impossible to say which talks were the best. but here are a few thoughts!

  • The pro-player breakdowns are INCREDIBLE!  For kids who want to get better, is there a better way than to not only view the skills and decisions but to get game context, thought process, plus hind sight?  
  • The Box Lacrosse breakdowns take the articulation of skill and IQ to another level.  If you've never watched one of these, it will blow your mind!
  • The college coaches from men's and women's lacrosse did fantastic presentations with footage from their practices and games.
  • Plus, there are amazing presentations on...

Fall Tour

My great friend and "Wolfpack" member Mark Blake asked me a few months ago if I wanted to see The Who, front row seats, at Fenway Park on Friday night September 13th.  "Hell yes!" was the obvious reply and from there I got started planning what became an epic trip of visiting college Lacrosse programs.

Boston University

BU was was still in there 8 hour per week practice mode and was doing 1 hour skill sessions.  It was great to catch up with Ryan Polley who has done a marvelous job building this program from scratch.  Coach Polley is fired up for this season and feels lie he has great young talent.

The offense was run by Mike Silipo, one of the brightest young lacrosse coaches (and SICK hoop players) out there.  Mike was working on the passes, the dodges, the shots and movements of his 'Cuse Motion...

Phi-Lacrosse-ophy Podcast with Richmond Head Coach Dan Chemotti

This is a great listen!  Coach Chemotti is a class act, has a history of winning, and when you hear his story and who his mentors are, you will understand why.  A product of West Genee and Duke, Dan had coaching stops at Dartmouth, St Johns and Loyola where he was part of the 2012 National championship team. In six years The Spiders have won the league 3 times and been to three NCAA Tournaments!

Why Coaches Education Doesn't Work

Many coaches are un-coachable.  I hate to say it, but it's true.  Over the years I have spent a ton of time with coaches, talking lacrosse, watching film, drawing up the x's and o's, inviting them to practices.... and they literally never...

 "Free Play" Podcast

This week I posted new Phi-Lacrosse-ophy Podcast with Joy of the People  Artistic Director and Co-Founder, Ted Kroeten.  This is my FAVORITE PODCAST I've ever done because I am so passionate about "Pick up Games," "Sandlot," and "Free Play" and the way Kroeten dives into theories and realities of unstructured play is fascinating and validating.  The concepts of "Under -loading", Second Language Learning Theory where acquisition must come before learning,  the myths about the best soccer academies in the world and much more!

The Coquitlam Jr Adanacs

Last Sunday night was the end of an era as the Coquitlam Jr Adanacs were bounced from the Minto Cup with a loss to the Victoria Shamrocks and my son Colin played his last Jr A game for one of the great organizations in the history of box lacrosse.  Becoming the first US player ever to win a Minto in 2016 and following it up with another national championship last year against the Brampton Excelsiors highlights a five year run in Coquitlam that has been so special.  The friends and families,, the teammates, "Wings and Rings" at the "B", the Shack, the Rookie Parties, the shoot arounds, hanging out at outdoor boxes on summer evenings, and living in a true box lacrosse culture has been so special to our son.  For my wife and me, we are just so thankful that Colin was able to follow his...
