Rumor Mill: Con Bro Chill May be Making his NH Debut

Sorry, it's been a while since the last post. I've been busy with academics and the like.

That being said, last night I had the fortune/blessing of receiving a Facebook message from the THE Con Bro Chill!


For the uninformed few who don't already know of Con's exploits inside and outside of the lacrosse community – his name is Connor Martin and he is an MCLA hero. Graduating from Chapman University in 2010 as the MCLA Player of the Year, the Oregon native has moved on to be a marquee personality in the both the indoor and outdoor professional lacrosse leagues.

Like they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. I think this speak volumes.

Outside of lacrosse Martin is known for making ridiculous fake news telecasts and equally as absurd music videos. More recently Con has started his own band, Con Bro Chill – this brings me to the point of the message. Con Bro Chill (the band) will be touring/performing/chilling in the Boston Area in mid-March. The band would like to meet up with some east coast club brethren and wants to make a stop in Durham. In terms of scheduling and logistics it is yet to be determined if this going to work out.

Here is what we could be in for:

Looks/sounds pretty righteous.

As far as I know, it is still up in the air as to whether or not this legend of club lax will be making a Durham pit stop on his conquest of the east coast, hopefully we'll find out in the near future.

Stay tuned for next time, I've got another post in the making.

Back in Action...Again

Apologies for the winter hiatus but... Looks like it's that time of year again! The 'Cats are back in Durham after a well deserved winter break and ready for a fresh season of lax, academics and consistent blog posts. The boys haven’t been entirely idle over the past month or so – under the direction of our new strength and conditioning Coach Ryan George the team has been getting fit and lean for coming beach season (Learn more about his work here..).

Blogmaster John Kerrigan is looking pleased with his results!

The 'Cats have also hosted their 3rd annual youth lacrosse clinic with over 100 Seacoast Area youth lacrosse players in attendance. At the clinic we were fortunate enough to have Boston Cannons mid-fielder Mike Stone with us. He put on a great shooting demo and helped out with some of the drills as well.

Mike Stone doing his thing.

The most feared defensemen in the PCLL breaking it down for the young ones.

That being said, this week marks the beginning of the spring season and we'll be in the lovely field house for a couple of late night practices. The boys better be sure to bring their A-Game's and some Neosporin® for that track burn.
