This week's guest is lacrosse legend, Ryan Powell. The second oldest brother in one the most accomplished families in lacrosse history. 

This is a great episode for younger players. As we discuss in the interview, Ryan was never the fastest or the strongest on the field, but he worked hard to find other ways to beat you. We talk about his idols growing up, and how he tried to develop all parts of his game to become a more rounded player. 

And finally, as most players are preparting for the season, we discuss the one wall ball trick he continues to rely on to stay sharp. 

Enjoy today's episode, subscribe on iTunes, and don't forget to set up your team on GameChanger Team Manager this season.
