A former SU lacrosse player and West Genesee graduate has opened up a lacrosse camp that will teach dozens of Central New York kids the proper technique, and attitude, to play the game.
Dylan Donahue says the best way to get playing time in a game is to score goals, but it’s not as easy as it sounds, he says.
“If you can score, you’re going to be on the field and that’s kind of where I had to start too,” Donahue said.
That’s what he wants to instill in kids during his new camp, Lacrosse Sniper School. Next January, he’s hoping to teach the nearly two dozen kids of all ages proper techniques, and of course, the right attitude.
“There’s never enough time to get shooting reps and the little techniques that you need in each practice. There’s certain things you can control and certain things you can’t control, you can control your work ethic, you know, how you practice and the thing about shooting is it has to be practiced the right way,” Donahue said.
It might be hard to believe, but lacrosse wasn’t always simple for former SU lacrosse player.
“I was never the biggest, the fastest, or the strongest kid, so it was hard, you know. Lacrosse didn’t always come easy,” he said.
Donahue scored 50 goals his junior year at SU and was the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s Major League Lacrosse draft.
