The NFL Network did a horrendous job describing “lax bros.”
Before Chris Hogan, Mike D’Amato was the forefather of playing lacrosse in college before coming to the NFL.

It was a busy day for Salisbury! First, Christmas hit!
Then, the members of last year’s team visited the Maryland State House in honor of their National Championship last season!
Salisbury is ranked #1 in the USILA preseason rankings.
In a smart move, Lax Sports Network will stream Cleveland State’s inaugural game next Saturday (!) against Michigan!
In addition to broadcasting the game, LSN will produce pre-game and halftime content from its studio surrounding the contest. The network will also be involved in promoting the game through its various channels in the week leading up to the event.
Todd Bell, the play-by-play voice of the Ohio Machine of Major League Lacrosse, and Dom Marzano, an assistant coach with the Machine, will have the call of the game.
Niko Tamurian of CNYCentral.com writes about how this year’s Onondaga Community College team is calling themselves the “Redeem Team.”
"I don’t think any of us had a good night’s sleep since May 14th. A lot of regrets. A lot of would’ve, could’ves, but the best thing is you get another season to start and we can but it behind us shortly" [Chuck] Wilbur adds.
“I think it’s going to be a good year for us. We’re hungry. Our motto this year is ‘Unfinished Business, Redeem Team’ and we’re really sticking to that. We’re ready to come out strong this year" F-M alum Erik Badger says.
“I think so far we’re meshing really well. The freshman came in, they’re hungry, they’re ready to get a chance to run at a national championship. Everyone comes here for one goal; we want to win a national championship" the sophomore Lazer adds.

Miles Moscato is a Salisbury commit. Only difference is he has one hand, as Inside Lacrosse’s Matt Kinnear notes.
Football was his No. 1 sport, but he was drawn to the teamwork in lacrosse, as well as the challenge.
“I didn’t score a single goal that first season. I loved that it wasn’t easy. I loved that I wasn’t good at it and had to learn and had to think” he says.
His parents, Tim and Tammy, never let Miles use the handicap as an excuse.
“They’ve always pushed me to be as good as I can be and do everything that’s in the realm of possibility. And the realm of possibility is everything, it’s just a matter of figuring out,” he says. “I’ve wanted to quit at minor tasks. They never let me do that. They never let me ask for help; they had me figure it out for myself. I’m glad they taught me how to be tough from Day 1.”
If you saw the #BellLetsTalk hashtag on Twitter yesterday, it was for a great cause to spread awareness of mental health. Some teams joined in.
The Sixers won again. They won two straight games in as many days. #RAISETHECAT
