Michelle Tumolo | S3 E7

Michelle Tumolo has become one of the biggest stars in women’s lacrosse with her unique style and flashy skills.

She picked up the game in high school and quickly found role models in Gary Gait, Katrina Dowd and others from the Northwestern dynasty. She wanted to stand out on the lacrosse field and make an impact.

Consider that goal accomplished. The 2017 U.S. national team gold medalist has become one of the biggest role models in the sport, both on and off the field. She’s helped inject a level of fun to the game, not unlike Dowd, and she’s helping girls who, like herself, are gay lacrosse players.

Tumolo spoke with Paul Carcaterra about her beginnings in the game, how she got into coaching at Wagner and why she feels the need to give back to girls who look up to her.

Grant Ament | S3 E6

Grant Ament’s historic career abruptly ended just weeks ago. Just yesterday, he announced that, despite an NCAA announcement that he may be able to pursue an extra year, he was moving on from Penn State.

Ament’s final season may go unremembered, but his legacy in NCAA lacrosse will continue for decades. He’s the NCAA’s single-season leader with 96 assists in 2019, and he’s the Big Ten’s career leader in assists. His ability to find open shooters has set him apart from almost any other player in the history of college lacrosse.

But there’s more to Ament than his on-field abilities. He spoke with Paul Carcaterra about his Penn State upbringing, his feelings on the canceled season and why he’s moving on to pro lacrosse.

Rob Pannell | S3 E4

Rob Pannell made a big decision this month. He decided to join the Premier Lacrosse League, comprised of most of his favorite teammates and friends.

Last summer in the MLL, Pannell felt forgotten en route to a 5-11 record. He wants the lacrosse world to know that he’s back in 2020.

Pannell joined Paul Carcaterra to share his lacrosse journey and what led him to making the move to the PLL.

Kelly Amonte Hiller | S3 E3

Between her illustrious college career at Maryland and her time building a powerhouse at Northwestern, Kelly Amonte Hiller is one of the most successful people in the history of lacrosse.

Hiller won two national championships at Maryland, two gold medals with Team USA and seven NCAA titles as coach at Northwestern. Her resume is one of the best of all-time, but her lacrosse journey is just as unique.

She sat down with Paul Carcaterra for Season 3 Ep. 3 to talk about her lacrosse journey, her life as the girl growing up with active brothers, what went into her decision to accept the Northwestern job and why she thinks the Wildcats are back.

Greg Gurenlian | S3 E2

Greg Gurenlian recently retired from lacrosse, leaving behind a legacy of being one of the most illustrious players of all time. The former Penn State star became a star in the MLL, winning MVP honors in 2015.

He retired once in 2017, but returned to win gold with the U.S. national team and play in the inaugural season of the Premier Lacrosse League.

Now done for good, Gurenlian sat down with Paul Carcaterra to discuss raising a child, what he’d do to change the faceoff and plenty more.

Trevor Baptiste, Matt Rambo, Blaze Riorden | S3 E1

Three of the best lacrosse players on Earth, each living in the same apartment building. Trevor Baptiste, Matt Rambo and Blaze Riorden took the PLL by storm last summer, and then headed to Vancouver with Team USA in the World Indoor Lacrosse Championship.

Through it all, the trio of Philadelphia Wings stars remain some of the most outgoing in our sport. Baptiste, Rambo and Riorden sat down to share their stories with Paul Carcaterra to kick off Season 3 of Overtime.

Katrina Dowd | S2 E9

Katrina Dowd has always been different. Growing up in Yorktown, Dowd idolized creative players like Mikey Powell.

Eventually, she chose to head to Evanston, Ill. to attend Northwestern, a school rising in prominence in the lacrosse world. Four years later, Dowd left at the beginning of a dynasty.

Now back in her second stint with the U.S. national team, Dowd said her skill is what has given her longevity. Dowd talks with fellow Yorktown native Paul Carcaterra about her lacrosse journey.

Joey Sankey | S2 E8

Joey Sankey has been challenged more than most these past few years. Sankey, North Carolina’s all-time leading scorer, missed the better part of two seasons with multiple knee injuries — and a battle with testicular cancer.

But he prevailed. Sankey has been one of the toughest players on the field, and he’s had to be. At 5 feet, 5 inches, he’s had to hold his own in the game of lacrosse.

Now back to lacrosse as a member of the PLL’s Redwoods, Sankey reflects on the past few years with Paul Carcaterra.

Lars Tiffany | S2 E7

Lars Tiffany’s lacrosse journey reached its peak on Memorial Day, when his Virginia team won its first national championship since 2011.

The title was a culmination of three years of building for Tiffany and the Cavaliers, who went from the ACC cellar to the pinnacle of college lacrosse. During his press conference, Tiffany was quick to pay homage to the roots of the game.

And it’s fitting. Tiffany grew up near the Onondaga reservation in Upstate New York, playing with Native Americans and working on his father’s bison farm. His love for lacrosse took him to Brown, where he played and later coached.

Through all of his coaching stops, Tiffany never lost his love for lacrosse. He speaks with Paul Carcaterra about what started it all, the inspiration from his parents, why he left Brown for Virginia and much more.

Kyle Harrison | S2 E6

Kyle Harrison, the son of Morgan State legend Dr. Miles Harrison, had lacrosse in his DNA. He learned the game in the Baltimore suburbs, eventually taking his talents to Johns Hopkins.

He played multiple sports, but fell in love with lacrosse and pursued a career in the sport after an illustrious college career. Since then, he’s changed the sport for the better, raising its awareness on the national stage and advocating for inclusion for all people.

Now he’s taking on a new challenge with the Premier Lacrosse League. Harrison talks with Paul Carcaterra about his life, his remaining lacrosse career and why his advocacy matters for the sport.
