What Is Club Lacrosse's Role In Recruiting?

Mike Loveday from StudentSportsLacrosse.com sat down with four coaches from around the country to discuss the current role of club lacrosse in college recruiting. Has it become more important with players committing at younger ages or has club lacrosse caused the expedited recruiting timetable?

Conceived as part of a larger project with StudentSports.com. The overall project aimed to target topical items within each sport covered by Student Sports. Rather than do a written story, I chose to utilize Google Hangouts and conduct an interview with coaches from across the country to discuss a topic of growing interest within the community.

I started my journalism career in college as an entertainment writer and eventually moved into the Sports Editor position. After graduation I worked as a Stringer for the Wilmington Star-News and covered Track & Field and Lacorsse. After eight months I was hired as a General Assignment Reporter for the Topsail Voice. In 2006, I was hired by Student Sports as a general assignment writer and moved into the role of Editor for MDVarsity.com. Purchased by ESPN in July 2008, Student Sports relaunched as ESPNRISE.com and I was promoted to the Contact Sports Editor in charge of football and lacrosse. In 2009, I took over lacrosse full-time. I am currently the Founder and COO of LaxRecords.com and the Mid-Atlantic reporter for US Lacrosse and where I manage the Nike/US Lacrosse Top 25 voting panel and a staff of four freelance journalists.
