It’s been a while since I had to write about a loss in this blog. I guess I should consider that a positive thing, but I’d be lying to myself if I thought it was that easy to find personal closure in the face of defeat. Going forward, the only attainable closure in this type of situation can be found through hard work: by working harder in practice than you did in the previous week. Read More…

Morgan State Men’s Lacrosse Player Blog: Way More Than a Game

morgan state lacrosse


The first year I played at Morgan I had no idea who we had on our schedule, but a large part of the team was upset that we weren’t playing Howard. I didn’t understand at first until it got through my head what a big deal it is to lax at an HBCU. I didn’t know any specifics other than the fact that they usually played Howard but this year we weren’t. Read More…

Detroit Mercy Men’s Lacrosse 2012 Player Blog: We Have No Plans of Stopping

It has been an exciting last three weeks. It began with the win over Quinnipiac, which propelled us into the first game of conference play at Canisius. The one aspect of NCAA athletics that has stood out to me the most is momentum, which happens to currently be on our side and unless the world ends tomorrow, I don’t see it leaving the Detroit Titans.

Colgate Men’s Lacrosse 2012 Player Blog: “Call Me Maybe” Flu Hits the Team

Legacy is a word that has been repeated a lot to us this season by Coach Murphy, mainly to the senior class. He has asked us on multiple occasions, “Seniors, what kind of legacy do you want to leave behind?” Coming off a strong Fairfield win, Navy would be a game that would add to that legacy. We just didn’t know in what way at the time. Read More…

So it’s spring break for us here at Fairfield and while everyone’s away enjoying their trips to Punta Cana, Florida or wherever, we get to stay here (life of a college laxer). Lucky us we even got to see some snow up in Vermont this past sunday, but hey at least we came out with a win. The good thing about Fairfield is that we live on a beach and the temperature’s been in the 70′s and sunny so no complaints. Read More…

Lehigh Men’s Lacrosse 2012 Player Blog: Hype Train Through Bethlehem

ryan snyder lehigh lacrosse


It’s week 7 now, and the hype train continues to run through Bethlehem. With our team coming off a monumental spring break trip, the Yale game on Sunday was an opportunity to keep the momentum going. On the other hand, though, it had the potential to completely derail the buzz surrounding our program with a loss, an outcome a lot of people probably expected for us. Read More…

Colgate Men’s Lacrosse 2012 Player Blog: Better Ingredients, Better Pizza

colgate men's lacrosse


Right after we changed out of our wet clothes, we got into our jackets and ties for the bus ride to Worcester, MA. The movie chosen for the bus was The Departed, which starts with the song, “I’m Shipping Up to Boston.” Another fun fact about it is that it unofficially stars former team member Frank Coughlin as cop/not cop William Costigan. Then, upon arriving at our hotel, we watched film and had some Papa John’s pizza ordered in. Read More…

Sweet sweet sweet lax. Lacrosse is the best sport on this planet on so many levels. It’s like that really hip song Levels by Avicii in that it just goes from one epic level to the next. First off, it’s got the coolest bros, sickest equipment, and the ladies love it. It’s got the open field style of soccer, the hard hits of football, and the offensive and defensive strategies of basketball. It’s no wonder why the sport is growing exponentially huge. Read More…

You wouldn’t know the mood in the locker room just five minutes prior by watching the start of practice. Everyone was loud and excited to be out on the field.
