Another Accolade to add to Crotty’s 2011 Trophy Case

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.

Will lacrosse ever have a LEBRON JAMES ? ( BTW NJ is my pick)

   Whether you are a lacrosse fan, basketball fan, cricket fan, or even a tiddly-winks fan, you know what’s happening with Lebron James and his decision to go to the New Jersey Nets, New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls, Clippers,Heat and of course to stay in Cleveland with the Cavaliers.   But where Lebron goes is so beaten down now  that no one really cares, but it lead me to think…  Will lacrosse,  the all so sweet sport of lax, ever have an athlete with the power, monies, global reach of a Lebron James ?

       I say  yes.  You can see the power of lacrosse building as we speak, the fact that I’m writing a blog about it is proof alone, but also lacrosse has a lot of the panache that basketball has.   Every coach or player I have ever know have always drawn the comparison of hoops to lax, and I can see at the current growth rate that lax at some point will be a universal sport ( It has already started).   It may take  10, 25, maybe 50 years  but I think lacrosse will have its mega world Super Star and with their own Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc account , maybe Casey Powell’s grandson will be making his announcement on ESPN 43  where he will be playing the next 5 years for 100mill…A year.   BTW  I think Lebron goes to NJ in a surprise move   …But what do I know, I’m only from NJ !

New Face of Lacrosse?

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?
