Cornell’s Rob Pannell at the ESPY’s

Cornell rising-senior Rob Pannell was nominated for a 2011 ESPY in the category of Best Male College Athlete, while Virginia coach Dom Starsia was one of five nominees for an ESPY award in the category of Best Coach/Manager. Pannell fell short to basketball phenom Jimmer Fredette and Starsia was outdone by Dallas Maverick’s coach Rick Carlisle. All-in-all, it was great for lacrosse to even be mentioned in the same crowd as the other attendees. Pannell tweeted throughout the ESPY’s sharing his experience. The best tweet was his final one.

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
