Awhile back I was breaking down some lacrosse goalie clips of a Loyola goalie Jack Runkel for the Lax Goalie Rat Academy (members find that training here).
After doing that analysis I wanted to get him on the podcast immediately to ask some questions and pick his brain on what made him such a great lacrosse goalie during him time at Loyola University. I was so impressed with his presence in the cage and his communication style.
Jack is now the assistant coach at the D1 program at LIU.
In this episode we touch on:
His start in goalie
How he learned the position
His style of goalie play
How his game changed over the years
What he does to get out of a slump
How he approaches communication as a lacrosse goalie
His favorite goalie drills
What he looks for when reviewing tape of young goalies
Plus much more…
Great guy and great conversation. Hope you enjoy this one!
Lacrosse is my passion! The game has given me so much and this blog is my way of giving back to the lax community. Specifically the most bad a$$ part of that community - the goalies! After learning to play goalie from scratch, I wanted to create a site where I could share what I learned with others so they too can become champions in the crease and in life.
