Game of Inches

Posted: March 31, 2015 by Paul Rai in Alberta Lacrosse, College Lacrosse, Vimy Lacrosse

Vimy_logo_BigGreat video showing that the fine line of winning and losing is determined by inches.

Some very good points about the college recruiting process with respect to Canadians.  I agree the recruiting process has accelerated too fast and the timeline needs to be pushed back.  That is up to the college coaches to change.  Kids from Ontario can drive 6 or 7  hours to recruiting events.  For Western Canadians the travel can be be prohibitive to get to events where there are college coaches.  What do you think?

 

Vimy alum, Dallas Smith and his Binghamton Bearcats, took on Syracuse in recent Fall Ball action.  Dallas, coming off an injury last season, has been working hard to get back into the lineup.  He missed the entire season last year and it is great to see him back on the field.  See below for highlights from the game.  You can catch Dallas (#26) in a couple of the clips and late in the video he sets up a great goal.  Hope to see more of those this Spring.

Watch below for great college fall ball action.  Make sure to look for Erik Turner, a Vimy alum,  in the Cornell game. Erik is making a strong case for a starting attack position at Cornell this season.

watch this guy and play like he plays.  Jordan Wolf is fast, tough and incredibly skilled.  All 5’9″ of him.

Holden Cattoni, a sophomore at Johns Hopkins University, is making large contributions to the offensive production of his team.  The Blue Jays currently sit with a 5-0 record and are near the top of all rankings.  Holden, a leader for the Okotoks Raiders Junior A team, has scored 6 goals and 4 assists for the Blue Jays.  Another great Alberta boy doing some amazing things in the NCAA.  Watch here are Holden scores 1 goal and gets 4 assists in a recent game against UMBC.

 

Watch the video below to see Alberta boy Dan Taylor lead his Lehigh team on to the field for their game against Loyola.  Lehigh lost the game to a very good Loyola team, but it was great to see Dan run the flag to center.  Lehigh is 4-1 on the season with some tough games ahead.  Dan is a starting attackman on the team scoring 9 points on the season.  He will be relied on heavily as the team gets into the heart of their season.  Another great Alberta lacrosse player doing some great things in the NCAA.
