Tom Schreiber - Archers LC / Toronto Rock

Season 2, Ep. 10
Current Toronto Rock and Archers LC lacrosse player Tom Schreiber joins us today for a deep dive into:-Being one of the best in the world-Playing professional lacrosse full time and what that means-Attending St.Anthonys and how that prepared him for Princeton-Why he chose Princeton and his relationship with coach Bates-His players academy course and online training in general-Who Tom is off the field and his thoughts on Long Island Deli spotshttps://player.acast.com/5c6dce2547d66b5d77eaee95/episodes/tom-schreiber-archers-lc-toronto-rock?theme=default&cover=1&latest=1Our conversation with Tom left us with a much deeper understanding on the commitment today's pro players are making to push the game forward. Tom is the perfect example of how professional players are pushing together to make the game better.Last WeekWe had Anish Shroff on the show. His voice is immediately recognizable to anyone who has watched championship weekend over the past decade or so, but that’s not what defines him. Anish Shroff is much more than a broadcaster: he’s a father, a friend, a husband, and a proud Syracuse grad. Based on his story, it’s completely reasonable to say he didn’t choose lacrosse, lacrosse chose him.Our conversation with Anish was insightful, educational, and just an overall treat. Lacrosse fans can rest easy knowing that he, among others (Paul Carcaterra and Quint Kessenich), are the voices of lacrosse.Our GuestTake the time and give Tom a follow onIGorTwitter.While you’re at it give us a follow here:IGorTwitter

The future of PLL teams, Ideas for Hybrid touring model, Tom from Flex-Force

Season 2, Ep. 6
This week continue our PLL Merger fantasies and talk about what the league might look like moving forward, including some interesting ideas about a possible hybrid tour model. Then we talk to Tom Herbert, the brain behind the Flex Force. What is a flex force?Tom describes it best, "for years, lacrosse players were forced to come up with their own methods of wideningtheir lacrosse stick heads.While rudimentary tools such as: tuna cans, hockey pucks, and softballs were most commonly used, none of these provided reassurance that the head was being properly expanded.Not only was the distance of expansion unknown, but the item used to put pressure against the inner walls of the head may not have been sturdy enough or been able to provide uniform pressure.In short, there simply wasn’t a proper tool for the job………until now.FlexForce has been specifically designed, tested and manufactured to correctly and uniformly widen a lacrosse head back to a game-legal, desired distance.No more shots in the dark.FlexForce gives you the edge you need."https://player.acast.com/5c6dce2547d66b5d77eaee95/episodes/the-future-of-pll-teams-ideas-for-hybrid-touring-model-tom-f?theme=default&cover=1&latest=1Last Week:We started the episode by talking about the biggest news in our sport, the PLL/MLL merger. If you didn't hear about it on Wednesday, Ryan Conwell wrote a great piece that can fill you in on everything we know and makes some educated guesses as to what may be in store moving forward. You can read that article here: A Deep Dive into the PLL & MLL Merger . After discussing the "merger" we immediately pivoted and welcomeed our featured guest, Chris Kolon. Chris is a proud Rutgers alum, former Atlas LC assistant, and currently the head men's coach for the University of Detroit Mercy (he also gave me my fist job in college lacrosse many years ago). Chris and I talked about building culture, recruiting, Michigan high school lacrosse, and being a part of PLL's inaugural season.Next Week:Next week we welcome a special guest to the show, Mark Glicini of PLL/NLL.
