Syracuse Alum And Hall Of Famer Casey Powell
Syracuse Lacrosse Alum and Hall of Famer Casey Powell grew up in Carthage, New York. He shares how lacrosse came to his community, and how he, his brothers, and neighborhood kids created a winning lacrosse culture out of what they observed from upstate New York powerhouse West Genesee High School and attending Syracuse University lacrosse games during the era of the Gait brothers. Powell discusses his decision to attend Syracuse University, his major, his suggested required courses, favorite reads, and the development of his game as a member of US national indoor and outdoor teams. Powell launched a startup called SPEED Lacrosse as way of growing the game based on what he created in his backyard with his brothers Mike and Ryan who also went on to be All Americans at Syracuse University.
