Peet Poillon

MLL Lacrosse

                      

   

What is your career highlight so far?

My career highlight has to be winning the MLL Championship this past summer.  We were on a 5 game losing streak before the final regular season game and going into playoffs, but we played well at the right time and won it all as the 4th seed.

 

What advice do you have for an aspiring pro athlete?

Set goals for yourself, and break them down into daily goals, weekly goals, monthly goals, yearly goals, and dreams.  This way you have a system that will ensure you are accomplishing the things that you need to in order to reach your ultimate goal.  Not everyone is going to be able to play a professional sport, but if you set realistic goals for yourself you are accomplishing something all the time, if you work hard.

 

Why lacrosse?

Perfect mix of a lot of sports, hitting of football, offensive/defensive principles from basketball, footwork/agility of soccer, hand eye coordination of hockey.  It is so much fun, anyone I have ever seen that has picked up a stick has loved it.

 

What do you think it will take to get lacrosse into the same category as MLB, NBA, NFL & NHL?

Time.  I think over the next 50 years lacrosse will be a big time sport, it is the fastest growing team sport in the country and it is only a matter of time until all the colleges have it and the professional league starts to thrive.

 

When did you first know you had the talent to be a pro?

After my junior year at Ohio State I think I knew that if I continue to progress I had a chance.  It was the first time I had played Division 1 and earned Honorable Mention All-American.  I think it gave me a feeling that I could really be a great player if I kept working hard.

 

What was your favorite subject in school?

I enjoyed all of my business courses in college, It was a lot of fun learning things that you could actually apply to your life

 

What is your favorite quote and why?

"You miss 100% of the shots you don't take." - Wayne Gretzky.  You have to take risks in order to succeed, if you just sit back and let things happen instead of making them happen, great things will never come.
