Utah Lacrosse News: What are you looking forward to the most while in Utah for LXM 801 both on and off the field?
Max Ritz: I enjoy the entire experience of LXM events: Traveling with friends, seeing new scenery, meeting unique fans of the sport, sampling some local culture, being outside all weekend, etc… I always enjoy playing the actual game more than anything else, but that’s a given!
ULN: Have you ever been to Utah? If so, what are you excited to do/see again? If not, what have you heard about the state?
MR: Been to Utah many times! I am a big fan. Every time there has been really nice, and I look forward to going back this winter to hit the slopes. Good people, good weather, Delta hub – What’s not to like?!
ULN: Why did you choose to play in the LXM Pro Tour?
MR: Geography and purpose were more important to me.

ULN: Why is your team going to win in Utah?
MR: The team coming off a loss is always dangerous. I think our group is hungrier now than before any other game. Plus, a handful of our guys (Harrison, Baum, Bradman, Erwin) have tried out for the US Team and played a bunch of high-level lacrosse. That always helps conditioning and gameplay…
ULN: What is your favorite stadium/field to play on and why?
MR: In college, playing in Final Fours at Lincoln Financial, and playing at rivals like Navy and Johns Hopkins, were always great. I don’t have a favorite venue, I have favorite atmospheres.
ULN: What advice would you give to young players who are looking to improve their game?
MR: There’s unfortunately no shortcut. If the game itself doesn’t motivate you enough to be around it all the time, then pick a new game 🙂
