Last year was a tough one for the Washington Stealth. They missed the playoffs after two straight trips to the Champions Cup including one title. They had more than their share of injuries that contributed to the surprising downturn. Perhaps the most significant, though, was the loss of coach Chris Hall for much of the season while he battled throat cancer. He returned for part of the year, but now he’s got his strength back and he’s excited for the start of the 2013 season, one that he and the Stealth hope and expect to be a better one. ”Truthfully, I probably feel the best I’ve felt in over 20 years,” Hall told the Everett Herald. “I feel great. I feel better than before I was sick, like considerably better. I think in large part that is due to I’ve got a little bit of a different view on life these days, and I probably take a lot better care of myself these days than I used to.”Stamp is a TV sports announcer and lacrosse lover whose skill set made him a defender but who always dreamed of being a goal-scorer.
