The Canadian Lacrosse Foundation is finishing up 2020 by re-issuing the Lacrosse Talks that have been compiled over the last two years. Lacrosse Talks videos generally provide additional information and take a more conversational approach with the interviewee than the Legends of Lacrosse interviews. Historians and other lacrosse individuals also provide their unique perspectives in these episodes.
This is the third in our series.
