Max Seibald was done.
Or, at least, he thought he was done. Nine years in Major League Lacrosse was enough. The five-time MLL All-Star midfielder had aches with each game that lasted well into the following week all last summer. A torn ligament in his foot suffered early in the year meant he couldn’t get out of bed without stepping into sandals. His left arm went numb with every shot attempt due to a shoulder issue.
The Boston Cannons finished in last place. He was starting a new business in Manhattan. The mere thought of another year of intense training for another summer of playing, schedule juggling and pain was a chore.
