Off topic: If I were naming my all-time favorite Johns Hopkins player, then it would have to be AJ Haugen.

BTB City! Did the Gaits influence the team?

Statistically speaking, some of these players aren’t the best in UVA Lacrosse history, but they’ve had an effect on us over the years. Remember, our vision of the perfect UVA player is skewed because we were unable to watch players prior to the mid-90s. If you’re trolling, then yea, we left off A LOT of notables like Rubeor, Rotelli, Stanwick, Stanwick, Stanwick, Stanwick (we know), and so forth. No hard feelings.

Further, it was far harder to become an All-American in the 90s. Then, middies who scored at or around 20 goals were viewed as the cream of the crop. Today, that’s not the case. Lacrosse has changed – more games, better technology, playing conditions (fields and venues), and etc. Scoring is more prevalent today. Enter Devil’s Advocate: players were allowed to dive back in the day, but is that your only case?

Here’s the ACC’s 50th Anniversary Men’s Lacrosse team. And, here’s UVA’s 2013 season preview. Who did we forget to mention? Who’s your favorite?

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.
