When people talk about all the American NCAA stars currently populating the NLL and the U.S. Indoor Lacrosse Team that heads to Prague next month for the FIL World Championships, it’s important to remember Kevin Finneran helped pave the way when he broke into the pro ranks in 1991. Finn went on to play 13 seasons in the NLL, winning four Champion’s Cups with Philadelphia and one more with Toronto before retiring in 2003 with more than 500 career points. His absurd streak of 138 straight NLL games was recently broken by Steve Toll in 2008.
Finneran’s currently involved with the U.S. Indoor Team as Director of Player Personnel, so we got the legend on the horn this week to talk about the team’s fundraising efforts, how the team has come together, how much stronger and more experienced this team is than past American squads, expectations for Prague, his memories from his days with the Wings and a host of other topics.
