2007 Presidents Cup

The Edmonton Outlaws Senior B Lacrosse Club is preparing to start a new season.  The Outlaws have a great lacrosse history in Alberta lacrosse winning several provincial championships and two National Championships.  As a player and coach for the team I enjoyed a lot of success with the team.  We were not always the most gracious winners and created many enemies in Alberta lacrosse, but our swagger enabled us to finally win the big one after experiencing numerous setbacks in previous championships.  I will always treasure those years with that core group of guys.  The team has changed dramatically over the past few years, but there are still some players from the glory years.  One of them, Stu Sterparn, has provided us with an outlook for this year’s season.

Another lacrosse season is upon us and The Edmonton Outlaws are finally ready to climb out of the basement and go back to the promised land.  Spending the last 2 seasons near the bottom of the pile was quite humbling for the one time unstoppable force.  With the changing of the guard complete and the team youthful again, look out for the Alberta lacrosse dynasty to be back on top where they had been so comfortable for the 10 previous years.  Adding 7 top end Jr A players is always a good start. The team added Kevin Wallin (1st overall pick) AJ Pellis, Patrick William, all from the Miners. We also got DJ Giacobbo, Josh Burge from the Eclipse.  Adding Mark Lawerence(Victoria Jr Shamrocks) and Simon Giourmetakis (Minto Cup winning Coquitlam Adanacs) will also be a huge boost to the team. Four very good Junior B players; Spencer Stobbe, Jordan Renaud (Edm Warriors), Cale Allen (Crude) and Shawn Gallant (Ft Sask) will bring more youth.  The ‘laws have also added a new bench boss with Dave Pym the head coach of the Calgary Roughnecks (NLL) taking the wheel.  A new youthful team, a new dynamic coach, look out Canada as the Alberta rep for the Presidents Cup this year should look very familiar.
