  • In this week's episode, Peyton Smith and Greg Puskuljdjian join Greg at the Stripe, the two newest faceoff specialists in the PLL. Being the only faceoff specialist selected in this year's college draft, Peyton Smith feels primed and ready for the Championship Series. Although he will be facing off with some of the best players in the world, he’s used to being an underdog and relishes in proving people wrong. Hailing from Raleigh North Carolina, Peyton has always played with a chip on his shoulder after being overlooked by Division 1 schools simply because he was from the south. To counter that, Smith has sent his offseason training into overdrive and packed on healthy weight knowing he will need incredible strength facing off with the Redwoods first four opponents in group play, especially with a condensed training camp. 

    No stranger to professional lacrosse, Greg Puskuljdjian is looking forward to not only being reunited with so many of his friends and former teammates but also his college coach, Nat St. Laurent. Greg says playing with the PLL faceoff rules will be an adjustment but it’s nothing he can't handle. All eyes will be on these two PLL rookies heading into the championship series as the Redwoods are the only PLL team to have fresh faces at the stripe. Gruenlian is coining them the underdogs with all the talent in the world and he’s excited to watch them shock some people during the Championship Series. 

    Greg Gurenlian, widely considered the greatest faceoff man of all time, has traded in his pads for a mic this summer. Leveraging his experience on the field, coaching expertise and media savvy, Gurenlian will bring a new era of coverage to the position that he’s helped pioneer. In The Stripe, Greg will chat with the top faceoff athletes in the sport, breakdown matchups, and analyze game performances.

  • In this week's episode, the Archers dynamic faceoff duo of Stephen “Bones” Kelly and Brendan Fowler meet Greg at the Stripe. Kicking things off with Bones Kelly, the two reminisce on Kelly’s epic Week 1 performance that saw him pick up the first ever PLL goal all within the first 10 seconds of the game. What Kelly lacks in size at the faceoff position (he is roughly 20+ pounds lighter than all of his opponents), he makes up for in speed and agility being one of the fastest players in the league. Stephen Kelly was the only player to go 100% on clamps last season, and discusses his offseason training in preparation to go against Trevor Baptiste in Utah. 

    Meanwhile, Brendan Fowler praised his fellow faceoff teammate Kelly and said the two know how to check egos at the door and when to share the faceoff position as each guy gets hot. Fowler says he goes into games not thinking about stats but each draw and how he is contributing to the team. As a natural all around athlete, Fowler says it’s his competitive nature that drives him and when he’s on the field you will always get his all. Greg calls the guys a two headed monster that people are really going to enjoy watching this Championship Series.

  • In this Episode of The Stripe, Greg talks with Chrome faceoff specialists Connor Farrell and Hunter Forbes. After dropping 30lbs in the offseason, Connor was thrilled when the PLL announced the 2020 Championship Series and can't wait to see more faceoff action this summer in #Chromeback2020. Farrell says his weight loss will have a huge impact in bouncing back quickly for each game, making recovery a top priority in Utah. Talking with Hunter, Gurenlian describes the rookie as “underrated” and praises his collegiate stats as being “off the charts.” Forbes is coming in holding every single ground ball and faceoff record in the Southern Conference. The two have already had multiple meetings with the Chrome coaching staff in plotting their plan of attack for the Championship Series.

  • Before diving into the state of PLL faceoffs, Greg gives us a detailed history of the position, how the PLL redesigned the faceoff and the latest controversial rule changes in college lacrosse. Gurenlian explains the origin of the “stripe” instead of the standard “X” and how he and other faceoff athletes worked with the PLL Rules Committee and Tom Schreiber to redesign the draw. Amongst many things, the central goal was to eliminate cheating - a pervasive behavior that Greg reveals was even being taught by some top tier coaches.

    Greg proceeds to break down the latest controversy in college lacrosse, explaining the nuance of the rule changes and how they impact the game. In this explainer episode, Gurenlian tees up the audience to understand why the faceoff position is so important, how the rule changes sparked a quicker transition game and what to expect in the coming PLL Championship Series.
