. . . Well, here we are, almost three years and a pandemic later, and today I’m proud to announce the publication of my third book, which just happens to be another “Best of RTD” collection. The Best of RTD – A Lacrosse Coach’s Handbook is 410 pages consisting of 58 blogs posted at JustLacrosse.com between 2012 and 2020, and its target audience is any and all lacrosse coaches near and far, young and old, from the youth level to college (maybe pro?).

Abbie McHerron grew up with a lacrosse stick in her hand. Even as a baby, she was in the cradle of a lacrosse stick, and she has the pictures to prove it. Growing up the daughter of a former lacrosse player and women's lacrosse head coach is all that she has ever known.

She remembers when her father was the head women's lacrosse coach at Siena. She said she was on campus any chance she could, whether it was swim lessons, in the athletic office, practices, cheering the Saints on the field, or in the stands. Growing up in lacrosse is something that she embraces.

While the 2021 version of the exercise carries with it the unique elements of this year (excited that games will occur, confused about when, where and featuring which teams those games will be, disappointment that it's not promoting a Face-Off Yearbook), we defy you to read this and not feel a sense of hopefulness for spring.

from Inside Lacrosse
No other players entered the Transfer Portal and sources tell IL that that disciplinary process has ended in the players’ favor and, while they have avoided the most significant negative outcome, some steps remain in order to ensure their ability to play this spring; those are also expected to end in a favorable outcome. As a result, Rehfuss has not yet withdrawn from the Portal, but it is expected that he will once the situation is fully resolved.

TD Ierlan tried to play whistles on his phone during drills for his faceoff lessons last night. However, he soon realized it wouldn’t be a normal lesson — because Wednesday was no normal day for the NCAA’s all-time leading faceoff man.

If there is one team that has the firepower to dominate the Division II scene, it’s Tampa, led by coach Rory Whipple. The Spartans boast the top faceoff man in the country in Ross Dickerson in addition to two All-American middies in Jake Mosher McGraw and Bryan McGraw. Add in two Division I transfers, and Tampa could be the team to beat.

This week we have an absolute treat for you. His voice is immediately recognizable to anyone who has watched championship weekend over the past decade or so, but that’s not what defines him. Anish Shroff is much more than a broadcaster, he’s a father, a friend, a husband, and a proud Syracuse grad. Based on his story, it’s completely reasonable to say he didn’t choose lacrosse, lacrosse chose him.
