GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here are your links for January 4, 2017.

College Crosse News.

We have a special 2017 Men’s Tewaaraton Award preview coming up later this morning by our boy Adam. It’s a really great post and we think you’ll all enjoy it.

Lacrosse is a global game. Check out this great video from Colombia of American coaches teaching the game and working to select the BALLERS who’ll represent Colombia in the World Cup in England later this year.

R.I.P. to former UVA men’s lacrosse hall of famer Robert G. Proutt.

This new Ryan Brown highlight video brought back all the feels.

Rhode Island Public Radio posts an apology after it forgets about Brown Lacrosse in their Top Stories of 2016 post.

Nice Q&A post from Our Sports Central with MLL baller Scott Ratliff.

Scott Ratliff is a Georgia native, a rarity in the professional lacrosse world where most players hail from lacrosse hotbeds in the Northeast and Canada. However Scott attributes always having a stick in his hands to his dad, who in his heyday was an All-American defenseman at the University of Maryland. Scott graduated from George Walton Comprehensive High School in Marietta in 2009 and went on to become the first Georgia native to play at Loyola University Maryland. At Loyola, Scott was voted co-captain of both his junior and senior season and led the Greyhounds to a national championship in 2012.

SHOOT YOUR SHOT, KID!!! (20 second mark)

Rutgers women’s lacrosse assistant coach Nicole Graziano was named the Best Women’s Lacrosse Player of 2016.

The Chester, New Jersey, native collected 57 percent of the fan vote to earn the distinction by a convincing margin. A team captain, Graziano led the Gators to their best start in school history before earning the No. 2 seed for the NCAA Tournament.

Graziano, a former U.S. Women’s Lacrosse National Team member, posted 44 goals and 17 assists (61 points), 31 ground balls, 22 caused turnovers, and 45 draw controls during her standout senior campaign, also collecting BIG EAST Midfielder of the Year plaudits.

Now .... I don’t support fighting in lacrosse. HOWEVER! .... My man did come out of nowhere.
