It’s finally here. With the NCAA season just a short while away, we bring you our 2015 College Lacrosse Promo. Definitely one of our best works yet, as we drew the best clips from all over the internet to compile to the sound of Ellie Goulding’s “Goodness Gracious.” I’d say its definitely worth it to take 4 minutes out of your day to check this out and get fired up for the season.
Arguably the biggest trade in lacrosse history went down this week, as the Boston Cannons sent Paul Rabil and teammate Mike Stone to the New York Lizards for Max Seibald, two first-round picks, and a second round pick in return. Many Cannons fans have been up in arms about the face of the organization being traded away, even though it will be crucial to rebuilding in coming years. With stars such as Lyle Thompson, Myles Jones, and Kevin Ride coming out of the NCAA in the next few years, the Cannons could easily gain more than they lost.
However, what has been less discussed is the off-field value of Rabil. Lacrosse is still growing rapidly, with many new players being lured through social media. Very few players have the same social presence as Paul Rabil, who leads a short list including players such as Kyle Harrison, Rob Pannell, and Greg Gurenlian. The Lizards have gained a great addition to their already “star” studded roster, which will help create an even larger fan base through Instagram, YouTube, and more. The Cannons, however, are at a loss, and will no longer have the same social boost Rabil has added in the past few years. Again, the trade will play out through the 2016 draft, so the Cannons will most likely look to replace Rabil with one or two more young guns with large followings.
Overall a great video from Tufts University summing up their championship-winning season. Very well put together, directed and edited by Tufts ’04 graduate Drew Innis. Definitely worth the watch, and will get you hyped for the 2015 season. This past year JumbosLaxTV has been putting out great content regularly, and they’re definitely worth the sub.
Wolf Athletics has made headlines this year, and rightfully so. Lacrosse equipment has been pretty standard for a long time, and finally companies are beginning to change it. Plastic heads and alloy shafts seemed to be the only route until a few years back, when True Temper teamed up with companies like Epoch and the carbon revolution began. This year, Wolf took an even different take on the industry with their Ghost shaft. With a whole new material at an affordable price, it is a great new step for the game. From just $85, you can get a clear shaft, to an American themed shaft, or something as unique as their “Glow series” that we were lucky enough to get our hands on. We look forward for more to come from Wolf in 2015. If you’re interested, buy their shafts at their store, or pick up a slightly used “Glow Series” for a discount in ours.
Officially open for business, the CrosseStore is a great place to pick up both rare and advanced lacrosse gear at a discount. I frequently spend time searching through eBay for deals on limited edition and discontinued gear, and usually end up reselling it after it sits in storage for a while. Now, instead of having to scour eBay for OG heads or a colorway you just can’t find, you can check our Store first. We keep our prices affordable, and have free-shipping store wide so the price you see is the price you get. From time to time we also get new items in to check out and review, and figured we’d post them on our store to let our readers get a chance to buy if they really like the review. Although most of our products are slightly used and tested, we are able to offer them at a greater discount and guarantee that it has complete structural integrity, unless otherwise noted. Check out the four items available now, with more coming soon.
