College: Two documentaries showing the life of college laxers

Here are two terrific videos, both produced by Drew Innis, documenting the lives of college lacrosse players. If you've ever wondered what life would be like playing NCAA lacrosse while attending  a top-tier academic institution,  these videos will give you an inside look at the incredible hours players put in to be successful - both on the field and in the classroom. In season, it's just shy of 40 hours a week for lacrosse and about 50 hours a week in the classroom and studying. Ninety hours a week – each week, every week.  Even in the off-season, lacrosse consumes 30 hours a week in lifting, running, captain's practices, fall ball, etc.

In the Ivies and in the NESCAC, laxers lead lives with no slack, no kicking back, no free time. In combination, these two videos provide a look at the best and the brightest - those who compete agains the best lacrosse players in the country while on the field – AND compete against the best scholars in the country in the classroom. The decision to attend college in one of these conferences is not for the faint of heart!
