Michigan, Mental Toughness, Making Saves with Shane Carr – LGR Episode 152

Playing for Severna Park high school, goalie Shane Carr went undefeated. They never lost a game in which he started, 47-0 and 4 state championships.

Not bad. You would think that type of goalie play might cement your confidence for life.

But then you wouldn’t understand the fragility of the position that is lacrosse goalie.

As Shane Carr starts in goal for the first time for the Michigan Wolverines he joins the podcast to discuss his goalie career and how he’s had to dig himself out of a mental slump on multiple occasions.

The lessons he learned from Michigan’s sports psychologist are pure gold!

Shane Carr just finished his sophomore season with the Blue and he shares lessons he has learned in the net up to this point.

The season was certainly not without challenge. The Wolverines started an impressive 7-0 including a win over Delaware and the narrative that Shane Carr is still undefeated started to grow.

On Feb. 19, the Wolverines completed a blasting of Holy Cross which saw Carr give up the fewest goals in a single game for a starting goaltender in program history: three. Carr was a rock in the bout, posting a shutout in the first half and logging eight total saves.

Then the season took a huge down turn. After starting 7-0, the Wolverines would not win again, finishing the season 7-8. We discuss the ups and downs of the season (to that point, we recorded this right before the Maryland game) and what Shane takes away and learns from in this moments.

Going to be great to watch Shane out there next year, and the year after!

Great conversation with this young man!
