Kip Turner

Lacrosse
 

                      

   

Who were your heroes growing up?

My hero's were my dad (he is the one who had to put up with me every day) and my mom (she had to take me everywhere). 
 

Know In Lacrosse I loved watching Mickey Jarboe play along with Tillman Johnson (who was the goalie at UVA my freshman year).  In other sports I loved Michael Jordan's work ethic,  Cal Ripken's humble attitude, and John Elway's determination.  Those would be my 3 favorite Pro athletes.
 

What advice do you have for an aspiring athlete?

Stick to your dream.  Set goals.  Set goals for the next accomplishment. For me it was to start at UVA, then  be an All american, then to get drafted in the MLL.  You have to keep aspiring to new hights.
 

What is your career highlight so far?

In 2006 winning a national championship.

 

Why Lacrosse?

It is huge in Annapolis where I grew up.  My brother was a lacrosse player, and I wanted to do the same.

 

What will it take to get Lacrosse to the same level as MLB, NBA, NHL and NFL?

Yes, because it is that entertaining. People can really get into it.  To see where the MLL is headed makes me a believer.

 

What was your favorite subject in school? And why?

I liked History because of the cool stuff you would learn about how others used to live, and how less complicated things were...but at the same time it makes me realize how good we have it now.
