9780801884108: Lacrosse: Technique and Tradition, The Second Edition of the Bob Scott Classic

For thirty years Bob Scott's Lacrosse has been the ultimate guide to the "fastest game on two feet," explaining the men's game at its highest level and promoting the Johns Hopkins philosophy, which has become synonymous with lacrosse excellence.

In this long-awaited updated edition, Coach Dave Pietramala, whose Blue Jays won the 2007 and 2005 NCAA men's lacrosse championships, and Neil Grauer, a Hopkins graduate and veteran writer on lacrosse, among other subjects, have reworked every chapter, modernizing sections on rules, equipment, preparation, and tactics. They revisit topics such as drills and skills for specific positions, game strategy, clearing tactics, and the history of the game itself―including a section on the Johns Hopkins contributions to lacrosse. New diagrams and images help to clarify concepts and instructions in the text. Action and instructional photos by Hopkins photographer James Van Rensselaer capture some of the drama from the 2005 championship year and accompany the teaching chapters.

Like the Bob Scott book on which it builds, this edition will soon become familiar to every serious student of the sport.

About the Author:

David Pietramala is head coach of the Johns Hopkins University's men's lacrosse team. A 1990 graduate of Hopkins, he is the only person to win the NCAA Division I lacrosse championship as both a player (1987) and head coach (2005 and 2007). Twice winner of the William C. Schmeisser Award as the nation's top defenseman, the 1989 winner of the Lt. Raymond J. Enners Award as the nation's top player, and a three-time first-team All-American, he is regarded as having been one of the finest defensemen of all time. Neil A. Grauer is an award-winning author, freelance journalist, and caricaturist. A third generation graduate of the Johns Hopkins University, he is the author of six books, including Wits & Sages(Johns Hopkins University Press, 1984), a series of profiles and caricatures of leading syndicated columnists, and Remember Laughter: A Life of James Thurber (University of Nebraska Press, 1994).

Review:

"You can consider this book a message to the outside world from the cosmic center of the sport... There have been lacrosse books before, but this is easily the best."

(Maryland Magazine)

"The ultimate how-to guide."

(Baltimore Sun)
