I've played lacrosse since I was 5 years old. I always enjoyed box more than field, but that's really a more Canadian style of Lacrosse. We always used to go down to Maryland for field LAX tourneys to beat up on you guys though. I played on a bunch of teams with guys like Zach Greer, who I'm assuming you guys at least know of.

I also went to Brock University, and our team has dominated Canadian University Lacrosse since it was added as a University sport up here. That's field lacrosse, BTW. Here's some history on the school's team.

It's crazy to look at NLL drafts and rosters over the past couple years and see guys I've played with all my life. It kinda pisses me off at the same time though, because there's really no reason I couldn't be there with them. Oh well, you win some you lose some. Maybe it's time to get back in playing shape and make a run at it.

Cdnbaron- I knew there something I liked about you- always great to meet a fellow lacrosse player. Box is an offensive blast to play- I really miss it though I love the field game more. I played for 14+ years and coached many years that cut into my playing. I haven't played in a couple of years but I'm planning on starting my return with summer league this year.

Yes I know who Zach Greer is and a great player- I grew up idolizing the Gait Bros.

Yeah, the Gaits are awesome. For a long time, Gary played for the Brookln Redmen (who actually play in Whitby, but that's besides the point), so I got to spend a lot of time around that team by being on the Whitby rep teams. I still have a Philly Wings jersey on my wall that's autographed by him. Really nice guy, he was always willing to help out the younger teams.
