United States Coast Guard Academy Lacrosse 2013 Player Blog: The Freshman Can Flat Out Play


It was a challenge for everyone to wake up an hour earlier than the rest of the Corps and condition, especially after coming back from leave. But with roughly a month to go before we hit the road and head down to Georgia to face Kennesaw State and SCAD I think everyone was feeling the urgency to get going. Read More…

When “Danza Kuduro” came on in the locker room yesterday around 4 pm, it was one of the best feelings any of us have had so far this season. We had just knocked off the #7 team in the country, and taken down the #1 defense. It didn’t stem from just showing up on Saturday, but from all the hard work we put in during the week leading up to it. Read More…

Our team’s character is exactly what would be tested this week coming into Army. How would we respond to a Patriot League loss? We’d come ready to play in each day’s practice. Read More…

So, I was kind of MIA last week with my blog and sorry about that, but wasn’t really in the blogging mood after a loss. So yeah, we lost our first game of the year vs. Colgate two weeks ago, and a loss is never good but it’s something we kind of needed.

And wouldn’t you know it we came out firing this past Saturday vs. Hobart in our first conference game of the year. Read More…

Occidental College Men’s Lacrosse 2012 Player Blog, Making it Count

Arriving on campus that fall, I had already made a few connections with members of the lacrosse program. Duncan helped me move into my room and get settled in on campus. That first weekend here, he took me out with him to meet and hang out with all his friends on the team. From there I hit the ground running and started training with and developing strong friendships with my new teammates. The strong chemistry we were building off the field began to directly correlate with our budding chemistry on the field. Read More…

The first page of the packet (usually an overview of the game and inspiration) had a quote from Vince Lombardi, “Once a man has made a commitment to a way of life, he puts the greatest strength in the world behind him. It’s something we call heart power. Once a man has made this commitment, 
nothing will stop him short of success.” This game would be about our heart power and not letting anything get in our way from winning the game. Read More…

Sunday’s game was quite the experience. A lot of hard work behind the scenes was put into it and I would like to thank coach Kolon for his contributions. It was quite the turn around after a tough loss to Ohio State, having to play one of the most hyped games of our season two days later. Read More…
