There’s a reason why players are selected to be captains in the National Lacrosse League. It’s pretty easy to see the qualities that led to my guests today on Boxla Beat being named captain of their teams when you hear them talking about their teams and the game of lacrosse. Colin Doyle is a consummate veteran who balances mad skills with a strong sense of how the game should be played. You may not like him if he’s on another team, but if he played for your team you’d love him. Either way, he commands respect in the game. Kyle Sorensen is only 26 but has been viewed as a leader for years, both in Peterborough and Washington. Sorensen started wearing an A for the Lakers and Stealth in his early 20s. He’s still a young player but he was a natural for the Stealth’s leadership role when Jasom Bloom retired. Hear Doyle talk about the Rock’s team culture that demands a commitment to excellence and Sorensen talking about how the Stealth have turned it around to sit within a half-game of first in the West Division after missing the playoffs last year. And find out which lacrosse legend was break dancing in the Peterborough Lakers dressing room before Game 6 of the 2012 Mann Cup. All on this week’s episode of Boxla Beat on NLL Radio.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.
