Congratulations to Ned Crotty being named the 2010 MLL League Rookie of the Year. Another award to add to his trophy case!
This Saturday with games at 1PM , Boston Cannons vs Chesapeake Bayhawks and then at 3pm Denver Outlaws vs Long Island Lizards , will try once again will try to put lacrosse on the map of the US and World . The Championship Weekend takes place on Sunday at 1:00 PM at NAVY-MARINE CORPS MEMORIAL STADIUM in Annapolis, MD. Who is going to win ? Who are the main studs ?
Is there any other lacrosse player you would rather be right now? After being named a first team All-American for the second straight year Ned Crotty continued to take over the lacrosse world. He continued on to lead his team to the national championship while winning the Tewaaraton award, being drafter #1 in the MLL draft to the Chicago Machine, winning the halftime skills competition of the MLL all-star game, getting sponsored by Brine, scoring the winning goal for team USA in the gold medal game of the world games and now becoming the ACC Male Athlete of the Year. Not bad for a 23 year old from Jersey.
Over the past few years Paul Rabil has become the face of lacrosse media with his Maverick commercials, long hair and now Red Bull sponsorship, but could there be new face taking over? After the NCAA decided to allow Duke Lacrosse members an extra year of eligibility, a number of players decided to take their 5th year to seek a much anticipating including the most recent NCAA star Ned Crotty. Within the past two months Crotty has won a Division 1 National Championship, while gaining First Team All-Americans Honors for the second time in his career along with being name the greatest honor in the story, the Tewaaraton Trophy winner. Years ago that might have been the last award to put in his trophy case at home, however only a short while after Memorial Day weekend he was named the #1 pick in the MLL draft (11 points in his first 4 games) and not to mention he is playing for Team USA this upcoming summer to win the World Games. Oh and he just signed a deal with Brine. Is it Crotty’s time for the lacrosse media limelight?
