First of all, Happy Veterans’ Day to all those who have served, or are currently serving, in our Armed Forces… and to the very special family members of them, too. I published a Veterans’ Day-themed RTD article back in 2012. I thought about re-cycling it as this week’s column, but I also had another topic to write about, so we’ll just make this week a special, RTD two-for-one deal. Enjoy – and thanks again to the many who have served, or are serving, our country.

One college coach felt that Burns —who could feed, dodge and finish with poise and consistency— was the best player at the event, and that isn't a stretch.

from the Buffalo Bandits
Rich did a tremendous job for the Bandits organization during his tenure as coach, and we cannot thank him enough for that. He’s truly one of the greats and exemplifies everything this organization stands for. His number hangs in the rafters for a reason. However, after looking back on the season and thinking of areas where we could improve upon, it was evident that this team needed to have one singular voice behind the bench.

I love the celebration, probably one of the ultimate levels of achievement and recognition. Sunday night I attended the 2019 Upstate Lacrosse Foundation’s Hall of Fame induction dinner. No less than ten new members were inducted this year. “Too many!” a cynic would say. “You’ll be there all night.”

Syracuse’s No. 22 jersey has been linked to some of the best players in lacrosse history. After two seasons on the shelf, the Orange are bringing it back for Chase Scanlan.

Scanlan, who scored 43 goals as a second-team All-American midfielder at Loyola as a freshman, transferred to Syracuse over the summer. For our cover story this month, writer KJ Edelman and photographer Gavin Liddell spent some time with new No. 22, who says he finally feels at home.

from Inside Lacrosse
Nick Mellen’s seen plenty of Syracuse’s offenses over the past five years. This year is distinctly different though and there’s one word he prefers to describe it: Fast.

“We're not holding the ball for three or four seconds,” Mellen said as the pace in his phrasing sped up. “Catch it and move it. Catch and move it. Dodge... So it’s quick. Everything’s happening very fast and that’s just harder for a defense to react to.”

Colgate was led by an experienced attack group with seniors Griffin Brown, and Nicky Petkevich, who have both logged a ton of minutes in their careers. With the experience heavy on the attack side, Colgate was poised to run a majority of its offense through them. Almost every time the ball crossed the midfield line Colgate was trying to get to a pass-down pick-down as quickly as possible. It certainly seemed as though the Colgate staff wants to play a bit quicker and try to be attacking for as much of the shot clock as possible.
