    This is my daughter Harper who’s 17 months old. As you can see, she’s already a lacrosse player. Her left hand is a little weak, but she’s putting in extra time on the wall right now. I have to save for college for her and her little brother which by then will be $1,000,000 a year or so. I can’t justify buying new gear for my old men’s rec league. A new pair of free gloves would be much appreciated.

    because my team goes hard in the paint, and theres nothing like a goalie running the length of the field to celebrate a big goal by a teammate

    Because I took this picture after Duke won the 2010 Men’s NCAA Lacrosse Championship. Oh, and it’s my birthday today:)

    Mr. Helfrich (and the esteemed gentlemen of the IU Lax program),
    I feel that I deserve the gloves for three reasons:
    1) I have followed your blog from the beginning (and your team since 412 took over the head coaching job), seen the dedication and hard work that you have put in amidst learning a new coaching system, overjoyed at every win, crushed at every loss. I may live in CA, but I am loving the Hoosiers.
    2) Below, you will see a picture. It is of me coaching my 7th/8th graders. I post this picture to show you gentlemen of the great wealth of influence I coach. Out here on the west coast, we have the ability to play lacrosse all year long, and the talent will soon be rising. Taking into account that I already am IU Lax’s Biggest West Coast Fan (self-proclaimed), how many of these kids will I push towards IU when they ask me “Who has a great lacrosse program?” My answer, all of them.
    3) It is embarrassing to pull out my ragged Harrow Torrents from 2008 and have every player that I coach laugh at me for not having the latest gear since I am an adult (which apparently means that I have unlimited $$$, oh how I wish it were true). These gloves would remedy that situation, and also further accomplish point #2.

    Thanks!
    Keep up the good work showing insight to the program!

    I need these gloves because I read 412 everyday while I’m chillin with my spoon down in texas (or up in new hampshire
    ) and I wanna rep IU

    I’ll transfer to Indiana and play for you. You talk about how much you love Connecticut lacrosse and i was first team all-conference in the SCC. I think its a fair trade.

    Because back in my day (@mcdermottkevinp), this was the best you could do for custom-ed up gloves. Notice the sincere lack of leather left in the palms, fingers, even some added back in (get yourself a Speedy Stitcher sewing awl… it’s your best friend), and won’t call the zip-strips to anyone’s attention. I’m trying to get back on the field for the first time in 15 years, you guys can’t let me go back in these things… can you?

    I have attached my photo which that clearly shows why I deserve the
    gloves. I am wearing a pair of 10″ k18’s for the past 2 years and have
    hit a huge growth spurt. My dad was laid off and I am lucky enough to
    be able to afford to play but haven’t been able to get new equipment in
    quite a while.

    Thanks for having the contest. I hope my picture helps tell the story…
