LXM PRO Coach, Dante, Talks Strategy

This past weekend “Team Cascade” was led to victory by legendary actor Peter Dante. Dante has played a zany drug dealer with a pet monkey, lion and elephant in Grandma’s Boy. He’s played a gay man named Tommy in Adam Sandler’s movie Big Daddy. You may also remember him as the quarterback Gee Grenouille in The Waterboy as well as Murph in Mr. Deeds.

What many might not know about Dante is that he was a stellar lacrosse player at Hofstra back in the day. He played during the era of the Gait brothers and Coach Petro. Dante’s enthusiasm still carries on til this day coaching his kids in Southern California.

He was very excited to participate in what he termed “the fraternal brotherhood of lacrosse”. Listen to him chat in the locker room before the LXM PRO game.

Lacrosse Playground

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.
