All Brendan Bomberry needs is a few inches. Give him a split-second to pick up a loose ball in a scrum or get his stick — any part of it, for any duration — on the ball and it’s too late. The room near the 18-foot diameter circle around the net is his safe haven, the fertile ground in which he completes both nonchalant darts and acrobatic maneuvers in traffic.

At least two members of Team USA think the current state of recruiting in lacrosse is broken. Their logic is simple. It missed them.

Rob Pannell, who set the NCAA Division I scoring record at Cornell, could barely attract a single scholarship offer prior to his senior year. Marcus Holman, who did not even make his high school varsity team until his sophomore year, now uses his experience playing recruiting catch-up as an assistant at Utah, which currently competes in the MCLA.

Founded in 1963, Stanford is home to one of the senior college lacrosse clubs in the country. But as many know, age doesn’t necessarily mean stability in the MCLA. Due to location, resources, and various other circumstances, coaching staff turnover can be a common trend. At Stanford, they seemed to have stability through the recent decade, but after the 2016 season, it was time to make a change.
