The news that Albany would be getting a new indoor lacrosse team is hitting even better than I thought it would. The area is primed perfectly for a new team right now. The success of the Great Danes of the Unversity of Albany has more and more Capital Region residents paying attention to lacrosse. It's only fitting that the team who will call Albany home would have a UA alum on it. Joe Resetarits played for head coach Scott Marr and the Great Danes from 2009 to 2012 and now he's coming back with the Albany NLL team(name currently being decided).

One of the great things that Resetarits bring to the new team besides a clear love of the Albany Area is YEARS and YEARS of experience in "Box Lacrosse". Box lacrosse AKA indoor or Arena lacrosse is very different than the outdoor version of the game. As you can see above and below the goalie for the Box version of the game forces "Attack" players like Resetarits to get pretty creative to get the ball in the goal. Joe explained the differences and challenges Box lacrosse provides when he joined Leavck and Charlie, listen below.

Just hearing Resetarits and seeing these shots of Joe doing his thing for the New England Blackwolves(soon to be the Albany Attack, Black Arrows, or Firewolves) gets me excited for the opening weekend of the 2021-2022 NLL season at the Times Union Center in December.
