“We were thrilled by the turnout in Baltimore,” commented Harris. “We saw a lot of great lacrosse players, but had to trim the call-back list to the best 24. It was no small task! We’re expecting equally strong showings in the Tri-State area, and next month in Boston. Every region takes great pride in its lacrosse talent. And there are a lot of people who think that this area produces the best lacrosse players in the world. ”
Added Peck, “Reebok has been an amazing partner in this first ever lacrosse movie. We all know that there’s a passionate, loyal and enormous audience who’s hungry for a great lacrosse movie right now.”
The film has received support from many major lacrosse organizations, including US Lacrosse, the NLL, the MLL, Metrolacrosse and the Tewaaraton Committee. In addition, the movie has been endorsed by dozens of lacrosse’s best-known coaches and players at every level.
