From Press Release

Maverik Lacrosse is pleased to launch its latest instructional video “On the Crease” starring Maverik Athlete and Penn State All-American Drew Adams.

“Making 1 on 1 saves is one of the hardest, but most rewarding parts of being a goalie. Making just a few of these saves a game can make a big difference in the outcome,” said Adams.

In the video, Adams explains different techniques for playing 1 on 1 shots, which range from a traditional to more aggressive approach.

“Drew has established himself as the premier goalie in the world. His size, athleticism, communication, and the mental edge he encompasses make him a game-changer. Drew not only makes the saves he should, he stops the opposition when he has no business doing so,” said Maverik Sports Marketing Director Paul Carcaterra.

Adams is a 2009 graduate of Penn State, where he was named an All-American 3 times, and ranks first in career saves with 694. Adams now plays in Major League Lacrosse for the New York Lizards, and was awarded the MLL goalie of the Year back to back years in 2011 and 2012.

Gear News: Former Duke All-American signed by Maverik

LaxGearZone.com, Posted 1/10/13
From Press Release

Maverik Lacrosse is proud to announce the signing of Wings rookie CJ Costabile, a three-time All-American at Duke University and the 2012 recipient of the prestigious Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award, to its roster of elite lacrosse representatives.

CJ Costabile

Costabile will be signing autographs and meeting fans this Saturday, January 12th along with Maverik Athletes Billy Bitter, Jovan Miller and Drew Adams at the US Lacrosse National Convention in Philadelphia.

“CJ is a great example of what hard work and determination can lead to on the field and in the classroom,” said John Gagliardi, founder of Maverik Lacrosse. ” CJ’s overtime goal to win the NCAA championship is one of the most memorable goals in Lacrosse history. We are excited to have a player of his skill, leadership and love for the game as part of the Cascade and Maverik team.”

Over his four years at Duke, CJ’s hard work in the classroom earned him an All-Atlantic Coast Conference academic team selection and conference honor roll membership. In addition to his lacrosse and classroom commitments, CJ was an active volunteer in the Durham community. He and his teammates often made and served dinner to families at a local Ronald McDonald house and visited patients at the Duke Children’s Hospital.

“I am thrilled to join a company which is as dedicated to growing the game of lacrosse as it is to creating the most advanced equipment on the market,” said CJ. “It’s is an honor to be working with such an All-Star team of athletes to help advance the Maverik message and contribute to the growth of the game.”

Costabile’s on the field resume is as impressive as his classroom achievements. In 2012, CJ was a First-Team All-American and ACC Co-Defensive Player of the Year and recorded a team-high 137 ground balls. CJ was also named the recipient of the 2012 Lt. Donald McLaughlin, Jr. Award as the nation’s most outstanding midfielder.

In that same year he was also a 2012 Tewaaraton finalist. However, CJ will always be remembered in lacrosse history for his 2011 face-off win and game winning goal in overtime against Notre Dame to lead Duke to their first ever NCAA National Championship.

During his four years at Duke, Costabile posted a .531 career face-off percentage, 368 career ground balls and 65 caused turnovers. CJ grew up in Connecticut and played for New Fairfield H.S., winning a state championship his senior year. He also was named as a “Top 10” recruit by Inside Lacrosse magazine in 2008 and was selected to play for the U-19 U.S. National team.
