They’re both among the most astute observers of the game of lacrosse. Teddy Jenner was on the inside as a player in the National Lacrosse League and now he brings an insider’s perspective to his coverage of the game as a writer and announcer, including his always insightful Off the Crosse-Bar show. Now Jenner is a guest on Boxla Beat and we talk about all things NLL. Get his take on the Stealth’s meltdown against Edmonton, how things are going around the league this year and who the leading early candidates are for rookie of the year. Teddy also gives us a sneak peak at the upcoming Western Lacrosse Association draft’s top prospects. Then I’m joined by the man behind the bench of the Edmonton Rush, Head Coach and GM Derek Keenan. He’s very open and direct about what he’s liked so far–and there’s plenty to like with the Rush off to a 4-0 start–as well as the complacency he saw creeping in last weekend that he intends to nip in the bud. Keenan is also the head coach of the Whitby Warriors, defending Minto Cup champions. He shares an interesting perspective on the approach his coaching group has taken. It’s not about winning, it’s about developing lacrosse players to make the most of their talent and play the game the right way. Two great guests who make for one great 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.
