Shout out to Huntva for the JHU vs. Albany scrimmage video.
Arms extended and a smile on his face, University at Albany men’s lacrosse head coach Scott Marr waited to gain the attention of the Johns Hopkins senior.
And, for more than a few seconds, the head coach waited as his son Kyle Marr first embraced UAlbany assistant coach Merrick Thomson, an idol and past coach for the younger Marr.
“Hey, Merrick’s my guy, too,” a laughing Kyle Marr later explained.
Saturday saw four teams meet at UAlbany for fall ball scrimmages, with Army and Vermont joining UAlbany and Johns Hopkins. In past falls, UAlbany had traveled to Baltimore to take part in scrimmages, but Johns Hopkins head coach Dave Pietramala — a former college teammate of Scott Marr at Johns Hopkins — came up with the idea for UAlbany to host this year’s event so Kyle Marr could get a chance to play at his father’s school.
“He thought this would be nice if we could do it in Albany,” Scott Marr said. “It was really all his idea.”
The Onondaga Community College men’s lacrosse program is once again at the top of the mountain, and Saturday’s event proved it. The Lazers received their 2018 National Championship rings during alumni weekend, as players and coaches gathered on Chuck R. Wilbur Field for the event. Coaches and players were in disbelief with the rings upon receiving them. “They’re pretty spectacular,” former Onondaga C.C. star Austin Staats said. “I’ve got a couple but this one is definitely one of my favorites for sure.” “Just the -- [they’re] shiny -- the lazer blue,” Lazers sophomore midfielder Braeden Elmer explained. “It’s just special.” Chuck Wilbur, the former Onondaga head coach who has since left his post in favor of taking another job within the college, explained the magnitude of the moment.
Rutgers hosted Massachusetts and Navy for a fall scrimmage on October 13, featuring three teams with NCAA tournament aspirations. The event also served as a fundraiser for the Vs. Cancer Foundation in partnership with the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. Photos by Kevin Tucker.
Here’s BOSS Cannella talking about how his lads played in the two scrimmages.

Whether it is practice on Tufts’ residential quad or on Bello Field, the six opposing rings on a basketball court-sized field stick out like a sports team eating at Carmichael Dining Center. As the butt of campus tour guide jokes, Tufts Quidditch is no stranger to ridicule. The Tufflepuffs are well aware of the ubiquitous incredulity they face.
“If we got paid every time a lacrosse or football player asked, ‘Hey, where’s Harry?’ [or] ‘Where’s the Snitch?’ during practice, we’d be rich,” junior co-captain Finn McGarghan said.
The sport spread across small liberal arts schools in the Northeast via word of mouth and email chains, and within a few years of its inception at Middlebury, Carly Boxer (LA ’13) founded Tufts’ team in 2009.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
Mother Nature let down the Belmar Kite Festival on Sunday. The one thing absolutely necessary for kite flying is wind, which even with the arrival of fall weather didn’t get above 3 mph. Only very small, light kites were able to get airborne, but they did not stay aloft for long. A few times those kites were able to stay up for a few minutes but none of the larger kites were able to get airborne. Mike Dallmer, Sr., of South Jersey Kite Flyers, brought a trailer full of kites to fly but couldn’t get any of his large kites up. “When the wind dies it kind of becomes a social situation,” Dallmer said. “You just visit with the other flyers.”
Mike Roman has only eaten pizza for dinner since he was 4 years old. He’s now 41.
The Hackensack-native went on Tom La Vecchia’s podcast “New Theory” to discuss this strange food addiction.
La Vecchia said he met Roman 10 years ago in a pizza shop, where they got to talking about how Roman had only eaten pizza for dinner since adolescence.
On the podcast, Roman said that his mother gave in to his picky eating, allowing him to eat only pizza for dinner. In his grade school days, Roman mixed that up with a peanut butter sandwich every day for lunch. But when he entered the work force he started dining out for lunch — at pizza joints.
