As a continuation of my most recent post, here is a look at a top division one lacrosse team, today’s is the University of Virginia:
Steele Stanwick ’12
Inside Lacrosse has UVA ranked #9 on their preseason poll and are projected to come in third in the ACC. However, I don’t see them having that great of a season. They will be in a similar situation that Syracuse found itself in last year. UVA graduated their three of their top scorers: Steele Stanwick (Loyola Blakefield), Chris Bocklett, and Colin Briggs (Bishop Hendricken). For the most part this will be a rebuilding year for the program. Hopefully, their new recruits can help restore them to the top of the loaded ACC conference.
This Spring, two of UVA’s top players come from New England Prep Schools. Junior middie Blake Riley attended the Governor’s Academy. The program has consistently won ISL championships and produced D1 players for the past decade. Senior attackman Charlie Streep also played his high school lacrosse at Loomis Chaffee.
To many prep school laxers in the Mid-Atlantic, Booker Corrigan has become a household name. He is well known for inputing rap lyrics into his play-by-play announcements at Pennsylvania and Maryland lax games. This guy is too classic!
This video speaks for itself to the hard work, determination, and drive found within each man on the Harvard lacrosse team… A team ripe with preps I might add!
A new website entitled, Boston LAX, has recently launched covering all things Massachusetts lacrosse. The website includes rankings by division, player rankings, game calenders and commit lists (with the ability to sort by school in order to track your favorite ISL powerhouse). From the looks of the site it has just gotten off the ground, but already it is shaping up to be pretty a neat website for Bay State laxers. BBN’s own Chris Coady `12 stands atop the Top 25 Poles, while Gov’s Sam Davis `12 and Seb’s Jack Connolly `12 hold #1 and #2 respectively for Top 30 Middies. Check out Boston LAX here.
Traditional Strings just released their Traditional Circle Bar Hat! As you should know, the fall is where the flow begins for lacrosse players. The clean cut men you saw on campus for fall yearbook photos must transition into athletes. In most cases, flow comes in four stages: 1. The wings 2. Lettuce 3. Flow 4. Overflow. Metal slider adjustable hats are perfect for the early stages of flow before you must whip out the snapbacks, fitted, and occasional beanies.
The TS Traditional Circle Bar Hat is perfect for steps 1 and 2 of the stages of flow, so get yours going today.
