Syracuse, NY – Tim “The Monster” Goettelmann, the three-time all-star with the MLL’s Long Island Lizards, and two-time NCAA All-American from Loyola College of Maryland, has signed with LAXFU, Inc., a lacrosse-influenced clothing company.
Goettelmann was approached by LAXFU for his lacrosse presence – both on and off the field. “We were looking for players that not only made statements on the field, but ones who carried a great presence off of it as well – since that is truly what our brand is about,” said Mike Dolan, co-founder of LAXFU. “Tim has just about done it all in lacrosse – he holds some of the more impressive records in the game today. We’re thrilled to have a player of his caliber on board with us as we continue to grow our team of professional players.”
Brett Strait, LAXFU co-founder added “I am very excited to have Tim involved with our company. His experience will be very valuable in promoting and developing our brand. Tim is the consummate lacrosse veteran whose career speaks for itself.”
Goettelmann is involved in coaching at the youth level through camps and clinics, and is considered by many to be a fan favorite that younger players can look up to – both figuratively, and literally (after all, he is 6’4). He was also voted 2009 Sportsman of the Year by the MLL and New Balance for his work on “Monster’s Kids”, a charitable foundation dedicated to supporting children’s hospitals.
“I was very excited when I first heard about LAXFU and their concepts,” said Goettelmann, “After I was introduced to them and what they were working on, I knew right away that this was something I wanted to be involved with. Their clothing line-up is second to none, and I’m amazed at the amount of work they put into ensuring that their brand is truly a step above the rest. I love the idea of a grass-roots company that is run by lacrosse-minded individuals. They have some of the best lacrosse clothing styles I’ve come across, and I’m proud to wear them.”
Tim Goettelmann has been simply unstoppable in his lacrosse career. Nicknamed “Monster”, the big attackman can often be intimidating to opponents. Goettelmann holds the MLL record for most goals scored in a game, scoring nine goals (on only ten shots) against New Jersey. He averaged 26 goals per year with one of the best shot percentages in the league, and was a human highlight film in 2008, exciting fans with his diving goals. Tim set a school record scoring 77 goals in a single season while at Loyola College of Maryland, where he was a two-time All-American.
LAXFU is a premium clothing company that has decided to infuse the sport of lacrosse into its styles. They offer stylish shirts, hats, hoodies, uniforms, and more. It was founded by Syracuse natives and lacrosse veterans Mike Dolan and Brett Strait. Both played at perennial powerhouse West Genesee High School, and went on to have impressive NCAA lacrosse careers.
