Looking for an Easy Way to Make a Lacrosse Crease?

Then you gotta checkout this story. Super excited since this is our first guest post over at Lacrosse Scoop. I came across a cool product the other day for lacrosse goals, and an even cooler story from William Wethington (excellent prep school lax name). The product is called the Eazy Crease. If you are a coach, assistant coach, or just need to line up the lax field every now and then I highly recommend you checking it out.

I love this story because William is a real entrepreneur following his passion. He saw an opportunity, seized it, and now sells the Eazy Crease in retailers like the Lacrosse Ball Store, Epic Sports and LaxLand. Tip of the hat to you William, keep rocking.

Enter William Wethington, Lacrosse Crease King and Founder of Eazy Crease

Have you ever had a dream in the middle of the night of a great idea, and the dream seemed so real, you solve some type of problem, or invented a product that everyone could use. Then all of a sudden you wake that morning and you feel that you had come up with a great idea, but you have no recollection what it was.

The high school where I coached had put in a new turf football field. The turf cost just under a million dollars. I was told it’s the same turf that is used at Dallas Cowboys stadium. I wasn’t sure if the lacrosse team would even be allowed to use it, later we were told the team could use it for games.

I was so worried about making the perfect crease on the field that I bought two portable creases that pop out and you’re ready to play. It didn’t take long to realize this was $250.00 down the drain, not only did it fall apart, but it posed a risk for the players to trip on.

One night while I was sleeping I started dreaming of the perfect tool I could use to make the perfect crease. The dream was so real I knew I needed to write the idea down. Quickly I jumped out of bed and grabbed a piece of paper and started writing everything I saw in the dream. I went back to bed and when I woke up hours later I got dressed and grabbed the piece of paper and headed to the hardware store and bought about $50.00 worth of supplies.

When I got home, I put together the first crease tool made of garage door wires, tent pegs, and pole clamps. I went to the garage and grabbed some field paint and started marking perfect goal circles in my front yard. My wife thought I had lost my mind making circle after circle in the yard. The name came from just how easy it actually is to use. I took it to practice, pulled the rough looking Eazy Crease out of the ball bag and made two perfect creases for practice. It worked great, no more tape measures, screwdriver, string, and trying to hold the paint can. My assistant coaches told me it was a great idea.

I went to the lacrosse convention in Philadelphia and gave out flyers to vendors and customers. Everyone I talked to thought it was a great idea and were excited about the product. One week later, The Lacrosse Ball Store from New Jersey ordered 12 and Eazy Crease was on the market.

Eazy Crease has been sold to just about every state in America and a few places in Canada. Every time I sell one, I think… “If I don’t sell another one, I’ve still done something that most people only dream of.” I created a product for the sport I love to watch, coach, and play. Eazy Crease!

The Fastest Lacrosse Shot Ever Recorded (VIDEO)

This Guy Even Beat Paul Rabil for the Fastest Shot

Zak-Dorn-Fastest-Shot-MLL

Yup This Guy!

Alright so what is the speed of the fastest lacrosse shot in the world? Does anyone know how fast it entered the lacrosse goal? 110 MPH? Nope. 115 MPH? Close. Okay, well who is the record holder? Casey Powell? Wrong. Paul Rabil? Never! Well at least not until some guy named Zak Dorn came around and clocked the fastest lacrosse shot speed ever recorded!

But Zak Dorn, who the heck is that? Well I'd never heard of him either, that is until he rifled a lacrosse ball 116 miles per hour at the MLL All-Star game. When those numbers 1-1-6 came up on the radar gun, the stands were ecstatic. Yes because he had just set a new world record, but most importantly because he didn't even play Major League Lacrosse! Zak Dorn was just a lacrosse fan working at a lacrosse store in Chicago when he qualified to attend the MLL All-Star game and have his chance at making history.

Dragonfly-Lacrosse-Shaft

The EXACT Stick Zak Dorn was Shooting With…..

Discount on Amazon: Epoch Dragonfly Lacrosse Shaft

Now we're not saying just because you own the same lacrosse stick as Zak Dorn, that you will shoot 116 MPH. But we are saying that buying the same stick could help improve your lacrosse shot speed. The FLEX technology from the Epoch Dragonfly shaft gives your shaft a “snap-back” when you rip a shot off. This snap-back increases your lacrosse shot speed. True story. Scoop one up today from Amazon.

Zak Dorn's Interview

The craziest part after watching him shoot the fastest lacrosse shot ever was his interview. Yes he was excited, but he said his fastest lacrosse shot speed wasn't even 116 MPH. He has shot it even faster before–Checkout this video on more of his story!!!

You hear about this phenomena all of the time in athletics and world records, especially around the Olympics. That swimmer who claims they've swam a faster 100 freestyle, or like Usain Bolt saying he's ran faster at his home track in Jamaica than at the world stage. It's too bad those records don't count.

But it only counts when it's actually recorded at an event that's authorized to declare the fastest speed. And in Zak Dorn's case, he could have probably shot the lacrosse ball 125 MPH back in Chicago for all we know. Unfortunately it doesn't matter unless you prove it on a world stage like at the MLL All-Star game. Which he did.

If you're curious what the other world record holders are for the fastest lacrosse shot, we've listed them below for you, with their respective shot speed.

Previous Record Holders for the Fastest Lacrosse Shot

Mike Sawyer, 114 MPH, 2013
Paul Rabil, 111 MPH, 2010
Paul Rabil, 111 MPH, 2009

It's pretty unbelievable to think that Zak Dorn, just an average guy living in Chicago, could smack the back of the net with is hardest lacrosse shot than any professional lacrosse player out there, including one of the greats like Paul Rabil. If you've got any friends who have clocked faster lacrosse shots before, post those speeds in the comments! Also, what are your average lacrosse shot speeds?

Finally, congratulations to you Mr. Dorn. You Came, You Sniped, You Conquered ($1000 and mad laxtitute tail).
