In the first edition of The Little Boxes Project of College Crossecast, I’m joined by former Albany attackman Tom Nuckel. Nuckel played for the Great Danes from 2012-2015, right when the program was rising into a national power under head coach Scott Marr. He also spent a grad school year of eligibility with the D-2 Adelphi Panthers.
In this interview, we cover a range of topics, including
-How his father and brother were big influences in how he got started in lacrosse
-His playing days as a Division Blue Dragon
-How opportunities in summer lacrosse helped get his name out there in the recruiting process
-His decision to join on with Albany
-Tom’s favorite memories as a Great Dane, as well as his experiences with Coach Marr and playing under the wings of the Thompsons
-Some of his personal pop culture favorites
