The saying goes, "Those who can, do - those who can't, teach." Well, that is not the case in lacrosse. The majority of the league's players not only play at the professional level, but also spend their free time coaching. The players are sharing their knowledge about the sport to all ages, ranging anywhere from youth lacrosse all the way up to collegiate lacrosse. Check out their social media posts to see what these players have been up to in the lacrosse community in the latest Social Media Roundup on MLL Press Box.
Midfielder Kevin Buchanan spends most of his time playing for the Boston Cannons, raising his two kids, and also coaching lacrosse within his community. He shared some group photos with Brockton High School's first ever boys' and girls' lacrosse team. Great to see MLL players help grow the game at all levels.

Greg Gurenlian is a master of the faceoff so it only makes sense for him to create a #FOArmy in the next generation. Coaching for Faceoff Academy at local gyms, the Lizards star posted this video from the weekend showcasing some drills he had the kids run through.

Kyle Harrison stopped by Spring Valley High in Las Vegas this past week to hang out with the lacrosse team for a bit. STX covered behind-the-scenes footage of the midfielder runnning through some plays with the boys, coaching from the sidelines, and giving some pointers to the team. Harrison tweeted out the link to the STX blog post and emphasized how great the Spring Valley Grizzlies are!
Ohio Machine goalie, Scott Rodgers is a huge fan of hard work and we can tell in this motivational pep-talk. He first posted this video months before the 2017 season began, but recently shared it again to remind everyone of what hard work can do. Great footage featuring Rodgers talk to a young lacrosse team about the most important aspects of the sport.
