Brian Langtry on What it Takes to be the Best
Exaro Sports is proud to announce Brian Langtry as the newest member of our team of expert lacrosse coaches:
“I’ve been around lacrosse all of my life. I grew up on Long Island, played high school lacrosse at St Anthony’s, college ball at Hofstra, and then played for almost a decade in the NLL and MLL professional leagues (here’s some highlights!). Along the way I’ve garnered countless awards and honors, such as All American, Conference Player of the Year, Rookie of the Year, All Star (multiple times) and was a member of Team USA at the World Indoor Championships. I have played at the highest levels, achieved success along the way and know what it takes to be the best.
You know what it takes to be the best? Individual training away from team practice. I’ve played alongside the best players in the world, and those guys were always putting in work to get better, whether it was dialing in stick skills against the wall or shooting on a goal in September when there was no organized lacrosse to be played. Athletic ability can carry you only so far, but at the end of the day the players who do individual training have been the ones who have risen to the top of the lacrosse mountain.
Now, I am a coach and see hundreds if not thousands of players per year. I coach youth up through high school varsity players. The kids who see the most improvement and end up being the best players are the ones that are putting in individual training time outside of my organized team practices. There is absolutely no two ways about it. I’ve lived it as a player and am now seeing it from a coach’s perspective.
I’m ecstatic to be teaming up with Exaro Sports to provide first class individual training lessons to players of all ages and skill levels. The Exaro App is an amazing tool that will allow me to provide personalized individual training to players regardless of geographic location. My expertise and passion for the game coupled with the Exaro technology will be a huge advantage for players who want to get better!”
