Without overdrawn it. It seems to be an intelligent man sport come across. Could you tell me your best teams are Ivy League now I think it's certainly a sport where the F. The the kids who grew up playing and are still feel kids of that you know in stature that wanna go to great schools like that. Yeah I'd say all the Ivy League schools are very serious blow across and really the dynamic of the sport today the kids that are grown up playing. Highly attractive to the Ivy League schools you know fortunately it in two additions and get them in and each each school -- supports their programs it's important. The game has changed a little bit though from ten years ago -- You have to to make it a little more appealing to the average hitter have I guess people in the in the sport tell me if not the same thing was ten years ago your great. I agree you know the -- the sticks the technology are all help the younger kids who started to come into the game help but be a little bit easier start. We certainly had amazing television coverage -- up to. Almost a hundred games a year of college games are being shown throughout the country so I think that's really helped there. It's -- fastest growing youth sport in the country and you know -- the level the level the athlete. Playing the game today is just raise the you know the whole level of the game and you know it certainly it has evolved you know ever since I was going back in the mid ninety's when you are America's I'm curious what you play football because you're always associated.

There aren't there are a number of football lacrosse players out there right now. I think lacrosse combines all sports soccer football basketball hockey so you get a crossover in a number of sports you recruit hard coach and recruit hard. Could -- it's been fun to move out to Denver you know it's only two teams. West of the Mississippi and that's us and an air force academy and play division one lacrosse. Probably easier recruited Denver than it is ideally yeah. She might as it did you could -- -- I don't know I've highlighted now if you're really good you can get in again you can get in our maturity should always right I don't know element Vincent was a little tougher but yeah. -- -- you know with -- a -- out here. -- lacrosse are you -- at northern California absolutely of -- from northern California and that's one of the reasons we're here this weekend at the other good blood that you came out here just He.

Your school Harvard. They are going to be -- -- you know you're going to get whoever you want right now. I'm -- -- -- should be happy with that said if you're -- -- Canadian players right at you you're you're recruiting out he's leaving the country -- it's -- -- -- it certainly means a great job recruiting you know and obviously combine -- with -- excellent coaching -- -- that -- in their final -- last year but you go to Canada that. Really kind of left that everybody you know most teams have Canadian kids -- 300 Canadian kids playing collegiate lacrosse and US.
