College Crosse News.

You remember that big Boston Cannons & New York Lizards trade that sent Will Manny from Beantown to the Big Apple? Well Boston would like a redo.

Well the trade has worked out nicely for NY. Indeed, both Manny and LoCascio have played in two games for the Lizards since leaving Boston, and both have produced on the field for their new team; Manny has seven points (7 Gs), while LoCascio has chipped in with 6 points (4 Gs, one 2pt G, & 1 A). However, the situation isn’t as rosy in Boston. Today (coincidentally on the same day that the Celtics formally signed star free agent Gordon Hayward), the Cannons dropped a bombshell on their fans and announced that neither Lawson, nor LaPierre will play for Boston in 2017 (or probably ever).

Very sad story out of Utah, as a high school lacrosse coach falls to his death while climbing with his friends and girlfriend in the Big Cotton Canyon.

Tragedy struck at a popular climbing spot in Big Cottonwood Canyon, Thursday as a climber fell to his death in front of his girlfriend and friends. Matt Hearn, who happens to be a member of the KUTV family, was climbing when he fell 100. According to investigators his gear somehow failed him.

It happened on Thursday night in the Storm Mountain area in Big Cottonwood Canyon, which is popular with climbers. Some had a difficult time hearing the news ... The news of Hearn’s death especially hit hard to the East High School Lacrosse team where Hearn was the offensive coordinator for the varsity team. “I couldn't believe it,” said head coach Pete Idstrom. “He was fun he was competitive he lifted our entire program just by his presence.” Team members tell 2News that Hearn had an incredible way of connecting with them and making them better players. “I always remember him as a friend more than a great coach,” said player Jack Ritter.

His mother, Debbie, was a registered nurse. Both have retired to Virginia Beach, Va. He attended Pennsylvania State University, playing lacrosse as a defenseman for two years. He quit lacrosse as a junior to study abroad as a participant in the Cornell University hospitality program, going to Australia to travel and study hotel management.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

The Eagles grew in value last year, but fell behind in the most valuable franchises list by Forbes.

With an estimated value of $2.5 billion, the Eagles placed 22nd on Forbes’ annual ranking of the world’s most valuable sports franchises – which also took soccer, NASCAR and Formula 1 racing teams into consideration. They were the only Philly team to crack the magazine’s Top 50.

The worth of the Birds increased 4 percent from 2016, but Jeffrey Lurie’s franchise dropped on the list thanks to the skyrocketing values of several baseball teams. The Eagles came in at number 17 in last year’s ranking, but the jumps made by the Chicago Cubs, Boston Red Sox and San Francisco Giants knocked them out of the top 20 this year.
