BOSS Marr stopped by 104.5 ESPN to discuss Albany lacrosse, his 150th career win with the Danes, and more.
Ryan Kern is an outstanding student and could have come directly to the Naval Academy. However, the standout goalkeeper realized the Midshipmen would have a returning starter at his position in 2016 and thus elected to attend the Naval Academy Prep School for a year.
"I knew John Connors would be graduating and the job would be open," Kern said. "My mindset was to come in and challenge for the starting spot.
That plan worked to perfection as Kern gained valuable experience at NAPS then showed up in Annapolis and beat out three other candidates to replace Connors in the cage. When Kern took the field against Johns Hopkins in the season opener on Feb. 7, he became just the third freshman to start in goal in Navy men's lacrosse history.
"Here at Navy, you're always a little worried about a plebe playing right away. That concern is even greater when you are talking about a goalie," Navy head coach Rick Sowell said. "Of all the positions on the field, that one is the most difficult to have a freshman. That being said, we felt like Ryan had the mental makeup to handle it."
Longstick midfielders are lacrosse's most versatile athletes. They stand out because they do it all. They are charismatic playmakers carrying a tool box full of skills. What's their job? A better question might be, "What don't they do?"
What’s Up, Philly?
First the coin flipped, then Howie Roseman did. This was after the special gold coin came to rest, the side with the Minnesota Vikings logo facing up. That meant the Eagles, owners of the Vikings' 2017 first-round draft pick, thanks to the Sam Bradford trade, were the winners of Friday's NFL Scouting Combine coin toss against the Indianapolis Colts. They will select 14th overall on April 27 in Philadelphia. The Colts will pick 15th.
Florida golf courses are known all over the world as some of the best. They're also getting a reputation for their wildlife - especially alligators. A Pinellas County woman now has her own "Florida golf course gator" story to tell after one walked by her carrying a huge fish in its jaws.
