Players go through training camp for the National Lacrosse League and it’s no different for the suits. Except that George Daniel’s training lasted longer than a month or so, and his intent as a young lawyer never harbored dreams of running a professional lacrosse league. Yet here he is, in his sixth season as commissioner of the NLL, a league poised for growth thanks to a new Collective Bargaining Agreement he helped negotiate. “It is only a matter of time before we start to see the league expand,” Daniel said in a profile at The Legal Blitz. “With expansion we’ll be able to grow on the television and sponsorship front too.” There’s much more to the boss man, though, and if you want to read about his start in the legal profession, his start in pro sports (basketball) and what he sees for the future of the NLL, make the time to check out this profile.Chavez is an avid lacrosse player in Rochester and a journalist for the Democrat and Chronicle as well as a longtime Inside Lacrosse contributor.
