Quote: “Lacrosse is just a great combination of all the great sports. You have the contact of football, the finesse of soccer and the hand-eye [coordination] of hockey. It attracts athletes from all ends of the spectrum. Lacrosse teams will only have a handful of ‘die-hard’ lax guys who play year round, but usually it’s the raw athletes that make up the team. It’s great to be able to have such a strong bond with your teammates when you’re always on the same page and can trust one another.”
