Lacrosse is still considered a niche professional sport that requires players to earn a living off the field. In parallel with Alrich’s lacrosse career he worked as a sales rep, first working for Reebok Lacrosse and later with a medical device company.

In our audio interview we cover it all, so on your walk to class or in your car to work, hit play and join us as we hear Alrich’s perspective on a career that very few have the ability and privilege to experience.
