What's Up Thompson Brothers

By now you know and admire the four Thompson brothers. The way they play has significantly changed the way the game is played. Many of us have added, or at least tried to add, one or several of their brilliant moves to our arsenal. The brothers continue to make headlines and bring more to the game. Representing Iroquois Nationals, the brothers led their team to a second place finish in the World Indoor Lacrosse Championship a few weeks ago. I am sure they will be dominating the world stage for years to come!

Lyle was probably pretty happy to keep the chemistry going with his brother Miles, who was drafted to Swarm the year before. Lyle also received his own bobble head in honor of his signing.

They became a part of the famous Huarache series, and have their own color, “Water Pack”, of the Nike Huarache 5 lacrosse cleat. All six colors are now available for preorder.

They went to North Carolina, Texas, Illinois, and finished in Ohio. The Thompson brothers have affected the style of play of every player who picks up a lacrosse stick. They were all pretty much born with a stick in their hand. It is early in their careers and I am excited to see what else they can do for the sport of lacrosse.
