Former Tiger Chase Carraro has been teaching the fundamentals on how to face-off on in a two-part video series.  It is really intriguing to see the pro’s techniques and how this has taken him to the major league level playing for the Ohio Machine.

“One of my favorite things about teaching the fundamentals of face-offs is that the improvement can happen instantly. Eventually it’s the little things that separate good face-off men from great face-off men.”

Carraro had a great career at St. Xavier where he led the team to state championships in his junior and senior seasons. He was named to the All-State team in 2007 and 2009 and also an All-American in 2008 and 2009.

Carraro attended the University of Denver the past four years where he was a part of two NCAA Final Four Lacrosse teams while playing for the Pioneers. He led the team in face-off wins all four seasons and led the team in ground balls the last three seasons.
