Dialed In: Your Lacrosse Fix for Friday, Sept. 24


Good morning. Here’s the latest from around the lacrosse world:

1. John Danowski offered stirring remarks at the Long Island Lacrosse 9/11 Memorial in a rededication ceremony held last Saturday at Farmingdale State University. Danowski said it was the first speech he has ever written before delivering it.

“For me, the locker room has always been a sanctuary where everyone is equal,” he said during it. “Everyone matters. Where a common vision trumps all. … It is a place of unity and purpose.”

Go here to read Danowski’s full speech.

2. This Hispanic Heritage Month, USA Lacrosse is excited to showcase the growing lacrosse scene and the diversity within one of its most promising programs — Miami Sol. Throughout the month, we will share first-person stories from members of the Miami Sol program, their proud heritage and the love for lacrosse that binds each together.

Learn more about the blossoming program in this piece from Paul Ohanian.

3. Paul Rabil is still making deals a little more than a week after his retirement. Yesterday, the Premier Lacrosse League co-founder became Therabody’s newest athlete ambassador
