These days, everyone in box lacrosse is looking for the next Tom Schreiber. Could the Oakville Rock have found him?
Oakville was missing several of its regular players when they opened the 2017 Major Series Lacrosse season by facing the Kodiaks in Cobourg on Sunday afternoon. They wound up flooring an offensive left side of callup Todd Kozak, usual transition player Brandon Slade and someone named Connor Fields.
If you're just a box lacrosse person, there's a good chance you don't know Fields. He is an American field player who has starred with the Albany Great Danes in the NCAA. He puts up tons of points and has been a finalist for the Tewaaraton Award, presented to the top player in US college lacrosse.
