Lacrosse Lounge Episode 10 - Matt Smalley
In Episode 10 of the Lacrosse Lounge, Matt Smalley of the Boston Cannons talks about being a defensive midfield specialist, what it takes to be good at picking up ground balls and facial hair.
"You have to play tough and you can't be intimidated by the big names. You just gotta' do your job and keep them from getting a good quality shot or possession. But other than being in shape you have to play with a chip on your shoulder. Everyone is good at that level but what are you going to do to set yourself apart? For me it wasn't going to be scoring goals from 15 yards out or making a spectacular play on the crease. It's about getting dirty and getting over the ball and doing a lot of the things a lot of people aren't very fond of."
Episode 10 of Lacrosse Lounge aired live on March 12, 2012.
