Watch the Boston Cannons Face-Off Men Train

There are a million different face-off techniques: the knife, the jam, the clamp, the reverse clamp, the plunger, the teaspoon, the laser, the finger, the rake, the pinch n’ pop… and it goes on-and-on. One thing’s for certain, if you’re going to learn from the best, then it might as well be from the best. An MLL Champion qualifies as the best. Watch the Boston Cannons’ face-off tandem of Chris Eck and MMA fighter John Ortolani do work during practice.

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.
