It’s almost here! The 2020 season begins in less than two weeks and everyone at the site is really excited to get this party started. To kick off the new season, Jake, Ryan, Adam, & I got together over the weekend to tape our 2020 College Crosse Preseason Top 20 podcast.
Michael Kelly of The Daily Gazette with a nice article on Albany’s Jakob Patterson.

Oh boy. This is not optimal news for Hop fans.

Lehigh took some time away from the field to practice dealing with the media.
US Lacrosse Magazine previewed North Carolina.
This fall, one of North Carolina’s top attackmen started his days with football practice. It was easier last year for Nicky Solomon, when football was in the afternoon. He’d go to morning lacrosse practice, knock out his two classes for the day then head over to football.
Back to work!

Shout out to Andy Reid: The Chiefs will meet the Forty-Niners in Super Bowl LIV.
The inside of a typical N.F.L. stadium is inundated with pennants and banners celebrating landmark championships of all kinds.
