Matt Abbott (Syracuse)

Postby UKLaxfan Mon Jun 30, 2008 7:12 am

If you play midfield and you want to watch a player to model your game on....

Look no further, get a copy of any of Matt Abbott's (Syracuse) games in 2008 but especially the Final Four.

He plays wing on the face-offs

He picks up GBs in traffic

He plays SSDM as well as being a one man clear

He can dodge down alley or from behind and can shoot or feed with either hand.

Oh and by the way he can run all day & he's fast :shock:

Good job he plays for Cuse otherwise I'd hate him :evil:

Coach Desko refers to him as "The Ditch Digger" because he does everything for his team apart from drive the Bus.

Rumour has it, he's taking his public service license this summer.

If you want to see how the position of midfield should be played get a DVD of Syracuse 2008 and watch #3.

Just do what he does and you'll be winning games in no time.

Great Article on Strength & Conditioning for Lacrosse.

The first time the SU Squad did the Gasser Test only one player was able to complete it :shock:

Matt Abbott was that man

Try the test and see how you do?

Was watching this years final again yesterday and you have to admire his one man clearing. It's really positive to see a middie that can do it all in the world of Div I specialized players.

Out of interest, where do you obtain game tapes UKLaxFan? I've only managed to get a hold of sketchy copies of this years final and the last world championship final so far and watching low quality youtube vids gets old fast.
