Everybody will find a home. HS kids will graduate and move on or age out and 95% in college already are not going to pay another year of tuition for 0530 lifts and no social life just so they can continue to ride pine and wear swag.

Informal poll of several D1 players who are seniors at different universities (about 10 of them), 8 are moving on to their professional careers, 1 is still thinking about it and 1 is coming back for grad school and will play. Not meant to be scientific but not sure most seniors are going to be taking NCAA up on additional year.

To me, it’s less about which seniors stay on and more about all of the underclassmen who get extra years. My son will now be a member of a 25-man freshman class this fall.

Why do the lacrosse vendors keep sending us advertisements for summer camps when they won't happen? I would rather paid vendors sending out emails regarding what their refund policies are if the virus ends up cancelling their camps. Talk about shoddy business practices.

No, he won't. John Tillman was on Scott Van Pelt's show this morning saying all recruits and classes are being reconsidered and touch decisions will be made.

Yes they will.

Conclusion: Do well in high school and on your SATs: get an academic scholarship and play D3 and have more fun. No coach can hold $$ over your head. If you're a D1 level player, you won't have to kill yourself to get PT in D3. Maybe you join a D3 program that let's you take a semester abroad? Enjoy college and life. If I had a dollar for every kid (many of whom were starters on national championship teams) who told me if they had to do it all over again they would have gone a different route, I would be a millionaire. Study hard and take a serious major for a great career. Don't let a college coach hijack what is supposed to be the best time in your life! D1 lacrosse in the 70s and 80s was more fun (no semesters abroad) before it got too serious. If you're bright enough and ambitious, there is not a pro league that pays you enough for the fun you forgo in college.

Life doesn't come in a one-size-fits-all. There is tremendous challenge with being a D1 athlete and that challenge, when met, is rewarded with great self esteem and foundational fortitude. A young man has only one chance to test himself athletically in his college experience. There are no do-overs with athletics.

If being a D1 athlete means taking a crappy major, no is the answer, if being a D1 athlete means sacrificing career goals, no thank you. College is not about sacrificing your career options and education at the alter of athletics. Its about the balance between the body and the mind the Greeks heralded. If you want real foundational fortitude, make a Seal, Marine Recon or SF team. Sorry, too many Lax Programs have strayed away from the Greek ideal.

Im 100% certain Coaches Pietramala, Desko, Danowski, Tierney, Tillman, Tiffany, Myers, Tambroni, Corrigan, and many others would take exception with your comment. So would the 100s of firms that hire their graduated athletes. Its a network that often is unrivaled. You hire the athlete not the degree.

Summer Events are starting to postpone and/or rethink their timing. Should the NCAA amend the lacrosse recruiting calendar for the 2021 and 2022 players? Should high schools be allowed to conduct summer practices and games? Interstate travel may still be restricted and local intrastate games may only be possible. Coaches may want want more time to evaluate and push their offers and recruiting back a year as their rosters may be more complete as they could have 5 classes to work with this year (and beyond). Perhaps there should be a condensed fall high school season for spring sports.

Your living in the past. This advantage only applies to the lacrosse players from the best schools with great majors and a GPA above 3.5. That's a small subset of this larger group. HR folks at Companies run the process now and you don't get interviewed unless you meet all three of these criteria. The sports grit advantage only applies to once you're on board.

This applies only in instances where an applicant is sending their resume directly to a company. The reality that with resources like Linkedin current and former players are able to align with former alumni, teammates or former competitors to find inroads into companies they are targeting. So yes, there is still an advantage to playing ANY sport in college and building your network.
