The gradual escalation to the moment of playing in the first Premier Lacrosse League game always seemed right in front of us. The process has been engaging, collaborative: a feeling that as a player, there is a intrinsic dedication to the formation of our new league, and a new commitment to the players and the fans that we’ve only dreamt of.
The PLL announced Saturday the 44 players that were voted to represent their teams in the 2019 All Star Game.

We’ve got a gritty, competitive group that embraces challenge, for sure. I am also filled with great optimism about the PLL – so let me explain.

In the summer of 2011 I was playing in the Syracuse shootout, and after my final game was approached by a man wearing purple and gold and a straw hat and flip flops.
