For the 3rd year in a row, MLL stars will take on Jacksonville in the World’s Largest Outdoor Lacrosse Party.

For the third straight year, some of the brightest stars in Major League Lacrosse will migrate to Jacksonville University on Friday, Oct. 26 and face off with the Dolphin men’s lacrosse team in a charity exhibition game and community celebration of lacrosse unlike any other in northeast Florida – the World’s Largest Outdoor Lacrosse Party.

“This event is unlike like any other fall game in the country. It is rare that college kids have the opportunity to compete against some of the best lacrosse players in the world,” stated Jacksonville head coach John Galloway, now in his third year at the helm of the program. “Our student-athletes will get that chance to do just that, while also raising money for an amazing organization at Nemours Children’s Specialty Care. The atmosphere we have created on the field with our beer garden and sideline access makes this the most enjoyable lacrosse event in Florida. I can’t wait to see the entire North Florida lacrosse community come out in waves to watch world-class lacrosse as we support a world-class organization and great cause.”

Ohio State & UNC came together for a great time at MRB Weekend.

US Lacrosse did a nice article on Bryant’s new head coach, Brianna Roche.

One of the most memorable gifts Brianna Roche ever received was a leadership book written by legendary college basketball coach John Wooden.

Janine Tucker, Roche’s women’s lacrosse coach and mentor from 2007-11 at Johns Hopkins, celebrated Roche’s first head coaching job with that gift. It was a message that the most important thing in coaching isn’t always X’s and O’s.

It’s about leading people.

That sentiment has stuck with Roche in the early stages of her coaching career, and now a new chapter begins as she takes the reins of a Bryant program that was knocking on the door of an NCAA tournament berth last spring.

R.I.P. to former Hopkins All-American Merle Debuskey.

Merle Debuskey, a Baltimore-born New York theatrical press agent and an All-America lacrosse player at the Johns Hopkins University, died of multiple organ failure Sept. 25 at the Actors Home in Englewood, N.J. He was 95. Basil Merle Debuskey was raised on Lakeview Avenue, the son of Robert Debuskey, a salesman for Travelers Insurance, and his wife, Freda Blaustein, who was a niece of American Oil founder Jacob Blaustein.

He was a 1940 graduate of Baltimore City College, where he played footballand lacrosse. He enrolled at the University of Virginia, but his studies were interrupted by service in the Navy in the South Pacific during World War II. After his military service, he returned to Baltimore and obtained a degree in English literature from Johns Hopkins. While there, he was named an All-America lacrosse player on the school’s 1947 team.

This was actually spooky for a second as I didn’t see the string at first.

Had everything but the landing. I give him a 9.7.

Great article from the Baltimore Sun on the 1975 Morgan State Bears.

Once upon a time, Morgan State played men’s lacrosse and scored a fairy-tale win over a legendary foe — a victory that, 43 years later, still resonates with the stick world. On March 8, 1975, the Bears — then the only lacrosse team from a historically black college, and one with a shoestring budget — defeated No. 1 Washington & Lee, 8-7, ending the Generals’ 27-game regular-season winning streak. The win over a Division I opponent who, the year before, had reached the NCAA semifinals, put Morgan State’s young program on the map. The 1975 Bears finished 10-4 and ranked 11th in the Division II poll. They lost in the first round of the NCAA playoffs, 17-8, at Washington College.

On Friday, that squad will be given a “Team of Distinction” Award at the Morgan State Varsity “M” Club Athletic Hall of Fame banquet at the Student Union’s Tyler Ballroom. The affair is sold out.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

This is actually an important list as I will be in the city this weekend: Philly’s top 17 places to eat mac & cheese.

Whether you’re a devotee of crispy-topped, soul food-style baked mac ‘n’ cheese or you love the saucy, creamy stovetop version, Philly makes a mac for you. Here are some of our favorites, from simple, comforting versions to takes tricked out with lobster and fancy cheese.

The creamy, crisp-topped baked mac at this iconic soul food spot — listed on their menu as “Cheesy Cheese Mac ‘n’ Cheese — might just be our favorite in the city. And yeah, the name is accurate.

World/National News

They’re here: Security robots now patrol NYC.

The robotic protectors can see what you’re doing and even talk back to you, but the machines created by a New Yorker have prompted serious privacy concerns, CBS2’s Clark Fouraker reported Tuesday. One of the models, named “Rosie,” uses the same technology as a self-driving car to patrol the sidewalks at the Lefrak City Apartments in Queens. “This is a crazy combination of artificial intelligence, self-driving autonomous technology, robotics, and analytics in something that’s actually useful for society,” said Knightscope CEO William Santana Li.
