Hall of Fame Goalie Bob Rule – LGR Podcast #67


My guest this week on the podcast is a goalie legend. A hall of famer, an All-American, a Kelly Award winner and the starting goalie for Team USA in the 1974 World Games.

It’s the great Bob Rule!

In 1971 after losing their season opener, the team pounded out 13 straight victories on the road to a national championship.

In addition to leading Cornell’s lacrosse team to a national championship, he was also a member of their national championship ice hockey team as a goalie making him the only Cornellian to play on 2 national championship team in different sports.

In 1974 he was the starting goaltender for the US in the World Lacrosse games in Australia.

Such a pleasure chatting with this goalie legend. We touch a number of great topics and I guarantee you’ll learn a thing or two about the position.

Also learn how to he used create the goalie sticks back in the 70’s.

A few highlights from the 1974 World Championships:

Bob is also author of goalie training book “Power Goaltending”.

Although his book was written 30 years before I wrote “The Lax Goalie Bible” its amazing how many concepts are shared between the 2 pieces of writing. I guess the fundamentals are the fundamentals.
