Much has been written about the state of college recruiting on laxallstars and other sites, about how the system is broken. I’m not going to disagree with that. I don’t believe 9th graders should be making verbal commitments or that college coaches should be offering spots to players who have barely made a varsity impact. Instead of writing about how broken the system is I’m going to focus on player development. My biggest question regarding this process is “What are you showcasing?”
One of the greatest lacrosse events I’ve ever been apart of is the Pockets and Sockets Tournament. Its a charity tournament benefitting the Michael Stolzenberg Trust. You might have seen Mikey in Lacrosse Magazine or in a recent Dick’s Sporting Good Ad Campaign. I can’t explain to you how proud I am to have coached Mikey but I’m even more proud to call him my friend. In preparation of the 3rd Annual Pockets and Sockets Tournament, I’d like to take you back to a blog I wrote after the first Pockets and Sockets Tournament
