In college lacrosse I can't imagine any D-1 coach not understanding that face offs are important. Is being a top face off player something that is coached or does it require a specific athletic base to perform at a high level. Do other teams like Denver have an assistant to focus on this? Is it like recruiting a kicker in football and it sometimes doesn't work out? Do we not spend enough time on practice?
I really don't know the answer, but having watched the team over the past five years it would seem face offs is a huge area of weakness.
