He spoke with US Lacrosse Magazine about his journey to the NFL in an interview for the January edition.

INTRODUCING THE NEW USLAXMAGAZINE.COM


US Lacrosse unveiled a new website


(www.uslaxmagazine.com) for its award- winning fl agship publication, US Lacrosse Magazine, in January.


The mobile-friendly magazine site features the latest news, rankings and developments across all levels of the sport while providing a platform for the kind of immersive storytelling that earned US Lacrosse Magazine two Folio awards in 2015.


With a clean and responsive design, uslaxmagazine.com is optimized for quick and uncompromised viewing on mobile devices — from which the website generates nearly two-thirds of its traffi c. In addition to college, high school and pro categories, two new site sections — Fuel and USA Insider — mirror those that can be found in the recently rebranded and redesigned print publication.

And judging from the early returns of this NLL season, American rookie Tom Schreiber could be the future of


Team USA. Schreiber, the MLL MVP, looks perfectly at home playing indoors. The Toronto Rock rookie had 23 points in his fi rst four games, including a three-goal, seven-assist gem Feb. 13 at Buffalo.
