One of our best works of all time for sure. So many plays to choose from when it comes to the MLL, as there’s an incredible amount of coverage and skill. We have some quicker cuts in this video than we usually do, enabling us to fit more clips in the video. ‘The Journey’ covers the entire MLL season, including the Lizards’ championship run. Enjoy!
Big thanks to Julien Berndt from TLN and Kevin Murphy from the MLL for making this happen. I was able to get a press pass to the Cannons’ last home game at Gillette, and it was really a great atmosphere to shoot in. Check out the highlights above, and let us know what we should film next!
Our first video in a while, we bring you a promo for the 2015 Major League Lacrosse season. The games kick off Sunday April 12th, with the Rattlers taking on the Hounds at 1pm EST. Be sure to check out the video, and subscribe to our channel if you haven’t already.
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 Rice 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.
This season concluded with a miracle comeback victory by the Denver Outlaws. Our latest video captures the absolute best plays leading up to Snider’s gamewinning goal. We hope you enjoy, and please be sure to share with your friends!
Down early, things did not look good for Denver. Their typical “give it to Junior and see what happens” was getting shut down, and Rochester was having a day on offense. The Outlaws managed to turn things around towards the middle, closing in on a 5-1 difference but ultimately heading into the fourth still down 10-6. They came into the final quarter strong, and ended up outscoring the Ratz 6-1. Two key goals came from both Jeremy Sieverts, a two-pointer from beyond the arc to tie it up, and Drew Snider, who let loose the game-winner with 56 seconds left in the game. 39 year-old John Grant Jr. was awarded MVP of the game with four points on the day. Overall an exciting day in Atlanta as the Denver Outlaws pulled out a 12-11 victory for their first ever MLL Championship in 9 years of existence.
