Between my junior and senior years of high school, I attended Dave Evan’s attack specialty camp at Dartmouth. After moving on to the finals of their fastest shot competition, two of us were challenged to hit a tiny corner pocket strung to a goal in two shots. If we hit it, we won a $500 shopping spree at what was then Great Atlantic Lacrosse.
After watching my compatriot miss twice, I took a shot to get my bearings, missing inside. Then POW. I hit it dead on…and the flag over the tiny corner pocket grabbed the ball and spit it right back out. I watched the ball land gently on the floor in front of the goal. I did not receive my shopping spree.
The point of my anecdote is to show you a new product that might have helped me get my shopping spree all those years ago, the Timmy Target from Blue Collar Lacrosse. (Click the Timmy Target for a video of this thing in use by some of the NLL’s most accomplished names).
