GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here are your links for January 29, 2017.

College Crosse News.

It’s great to finally have some games!! Inside Lacrosse did a great job recapping some of the biggest scrimmages yesterday. Here’s the review of North Carolina’s scrimmage versus Navy, here’s the Johns Hopkins versus Denver scrimmage recap, and here’s the write-up of the Maryland vs. Virginia scrimmage.

Shout out to our reader @Scotthensley for these awesome pics from the Hop vs. Denver scrimmage.

The Daily Tar Heel also did a post on the Heels versus Midshipmen scrimmage.

I didn’t forget about you, Penn State!! Here’s the Daily Collegian’s post on the Army vs. PSU scrimmage yesterday.

Within 16 seconds, Penn State and Army West Point were on pace to have 450 goals. But then defense kicked in, limiting the final score to 15-12 in favor of the Nittany Lions.

“It was odd,” coach Jeff Tambroni said. “I don’t know if I’ve ever been a part of something like that.”

Here’s a great video from Richmond.

Marist and BU played yesterday as well. I couldn’t find a write-up but you can go to BU’s Twitter account and get some notes from the scrimmage.

Marisa is ready to put BU in the Final Four.

Towson had a three-team scrimmage with Bucknell & Hobart.

Shout out to Fly Boys over at Air Force for hooking the people up with some ‘scopes of their scrimmage with Notre Dame.

Here’s a wonderful documentary on Marquette Lacrosse.

No. 1 Lacrosse Prospect Ricky Miezan Pursuing College Football.

Ricky Miezan had offers from nearly every top college lacrosse program as just a freshman in high school. The Virginia native quickly became the top college lacrosse prospect in the country. As a standout at Episcopal High School, Miezan was better than every other kid on the field. His size and athleticism matched with breakaway speed made him the total package.
College football coaches began to take notice. Miezan's plan was working.

"When I talk to coaches, the main thing they see is an athlete with good instinct," Miezan said. "They know it was my first year and are impressed. With any good athlete, they know their coaching staff can grow and mold me into a competitor on their football team."

On Thursday, Miezan received his first FBS football offer from Syracuse. It may be the first of many. Ideally, Miezan would like to hold his commitment to playing lacrosse at UNC, but also suit up for the Tar Heels football squad. He understands those may be lofty expectations and isn't opposed to a collegiate career focused only on football.

Our boy @OrangeLax did a great write-up about the Miezan news as well.

Chris Hogan is getting REALLY close to Disney prince territory right now: HEADstrong to the Super Bowl with New England Patriots wide receiver Chris Hogan.

New England Patriots wide receiver Chris Hogan will be wearing a little bit of Delco when he takes the NRG Stadium field in Houston, Texas, next Sunday for the Super Bowl, all thanks to a big-hearted Ridley lacrosse player whose dying wish was to help others. In what’s almost two-degrees of Delco, Chris Hogan is a friend of a friend of Michael Colleluori, one of Nick Colleluori’s brothers. In April 2005, Nick was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. He was given three months to live. The 21-year-old fought the cancer for 14 months.

Cottle, Moorhead inducted into Chesapeake Chapter shrine.

A who's who of the local lacrosse community turned out for Thursday night's Chesapeake Chapter of US Lacrosse Hall of Fame dinner. Harbor Hills Yacht Club was barely big enough to contain the crowd of more than 100 that came to honor 2017 inductees Dave Cottle and Jim Moorhead.

Shout out to KNWA news for showing Arkansas Lacrosse & lacrosse in general some love.

What’s Up, Philly?

Lights, camera, action!!: The Untouchables, a remake of a French film, shoots in town tonight.

There’s a movie shooting in Center City tonight. I know what you’re thinking: Who chooses to shoot a film in Center City on a Friday night? Won’t the crowds be too much for actors, especially a movie that will star Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston? Those are good questions, hypothetical quizzical reader, but I have an answer for you: The Untouchables will film on Market Street and JFK Boulevard between 15th and 20th streets, which is pretty empty on any night — even Fridays. And neither Hart nor Cranston will be in town tonight to shoot the film. Got it?
