Taylor Cummings | S1 E3

It’s hard to find a women’s lacrosse player more decorated than Taylor Cummings. She’s a three-time Tewaaraton winner, a two-time NCAA champion and now a two-time gold medalist with Team USA.

Her lacrosse story started with a move from Richmond, Va. to the Baltimore area. Now, years later, she’s one of the faces of women’s lacrosse.

Cummings talks her lacrosse career thus far, and what she hopes the future of women’s lacrosse will be.

Lyle Thompson | S1 E2

Lyle Thompson is one of the greatest players in the history of the game. His dazzling abilities wowed fans while he was on his way to becoming the NCAA’s all-time leading scorer at Albany.

Now a professional lacrosse player, competing with the NLL’s Georgia Swarm and MLL’s Chesapeake Bayhawks, he continues to showcase the same skill that made him a star years ago.

Thompson, who was the target of ignorant remarks about his hairstyle at Wells Fargo Arena in January, reflects on the incident and how it may have advanced the conversation concerning Native American lacrosse players. He also touches on his joy of being a father.

Bill Tierney | S1 E1

Bill Tierney’s name has been intertwined with the game of lacrosse since the 1970s, when he got his start as a player for then-Cortland State. He made his mark during his 21 seasons at Princeton, winning six national championships during his tenure.

Already one of the most legendary coaches in the game’s history, Tierney added to his lore while at Denver in 2015. The Pioneers became the westernmost Division I men’s lacrosse champion by taking down Maryland.

His illustrious career and fascinating lacrosse story were perfect to help launch US Lacrosse Magazine’s new podcast, Overtime. Hosted by ESPN reporter and former Syracuse All-American Paul Carcaterra, Overtime will dive into the best stories the sport has to offer.

Episode 1 of Overtime, which will debuted Feb. 12, features Carcaterra’s conversation with Tierney.
