Casey Powell

Casey Powell grew up in a paper mill town in the middle of nowhere, a small town boy with big dreams. His dad, Larry sold a shotgun to buy him and his brothers their first lacrosse sticks. The backyard became their sanctuary, their blank canvas. After only five years of organized lacrosse, Casey Powell set the national high school scoring record. The Orange came knocking on his door and Syracuse, legendary coach Roy Simmons Jr. found his next generational talent and he gave him the number 22, 2 digits suited only for the great ones. From the moment he stepped on campus Casey was spectacular. A four time, all American, a national champion, two time national player of the year and the school's all time leading point scorer. Just 1 of 10 players named to the all century team. That was just his first act. For the next 18 years, Casey would go on to have one of the most illustrious professional lacrosse careers, both in the MLL and the NLL. He wore the stars and stripes and he captained team USA, but he is so much more than just a player. He has taught and inspired thousands of lacrosse players. With an emphasis on a creative and innovative style with a flare for the dramatic; one that has the next generation wanting so much more. Today, he's the lead instructor of the Casey Powell Lacrosse Academy and he founded the CP world lacrosse foundation with a mission to share support and inspire lacrosse worldwide. Along with his brothers, Ryan and Mike, Casey runs Powell lacrosse company, and he founded three on three version of the game called Speed Lacrosse. His impact on the game has been and continues to be beyond profound is a player, a coach, an ambassador and a friend of the game of lacrosse. I've seen all of this unfold before my own eyes. I'm his college roommate, ESPN Paul Carcaterra, and I can't wait to hear what CP and his vast network of lacrosse friends have to share with the world of lacrosse.

Ep. 8: The Takeover with Powell LacrosseEp 7: Oh, CanadaEp. 6: The Attack Line of My NightmaresEp. 5: Mama Says Knock You Out
In this episode of 22 Easy I, Casey Powell, speak to someone who has been there through it all, and I mean ALL. Susan Powell is the matriarch of the Powell family and continues to be a role model and mentor to my siblings and me. Mom and I talk about what it was like having 3 boys growing up with what she calls "healthy competition" in the backyard and everything else. I mean we all out scored each other at Syracuse University on the lacrosse field..that tells you something! Mom shares stories about being on the road for years with teams and families, and I get a little choked up - even emotional- when my mom tells what she thought the first time she saw me coach my first college lacrosse team. I just can't get enough. My mom doesn't just remember these stories, but she is someone who has kept road journals through the years with tales from on and off the field. I guess it's no surprise that she recently wrote a book, "A Knock At My Heart: A Story of Life, Love, and Lacrosse" This book is an answer to the angels she has knocking on her heart. Thank you for sharing our stories as seen through your eyes. I love you, Mom!  How did you do last week against me in Powell's Picks? I made some picks that may surprise you this week. Did you like meeting Hometown last week?
