I wanted to give our readers a 'Heads-Up!' concerning what will be a MAJOR revamping of the FLN Web Site. Right now we are pretty much solely an online newspaper and that will change substantially with the new approach. The new look will incorporate many more content approaches, and we will have dedicated pages/sections for high school and recruiting, college and MCLA, the Launch and MLL, Club and Youth, a new Parent's Corner, an FLN Store and a very different home page. One thing we are looking to do is to make the high school coverage more regional and we have some interesting ways to do it with our loyal readers. We hope to also utilize our YouTube channel more fully and target far more video coverage. Talks are underway with a local college to possibly broadcast mo

Saturday night FAU's stadium served not only as the site of a thrilling Florida Launch come from behind 15-14 win over the The New York Lizards, but also as the host for this year's South Florida Chapter of US Lacrosse awards banquet. As far as I am concerned, every chapter in the state should try to replicate this great way to celebrate its season, whether locally or better yet, coordinated with a trip to Boca Raton for the night when the Launch is in town.
