At the X presented by The Faceoff Academy


Face off men play a huge role in lacrosse. They are the ones that start a possession and can literally make or break a game all by themselves. That’s why we’re introducing “At the ‘X’, presented by The Faceoff Academy,” a weekly feature recapping the best face off men in the league. Every Monday we’ll update the rankings, showcasing the top three FOGOs over the course of the season.

1. Greg Gurenlian – New York Lizards (54-for-89)

Individually, Gurenlian has more face off wins this season than any other team in the league. He has consistently given his team a strong edge at midfield this season, as the Lizards have won the face off battle in each of their first three games. Unfortunately, New York hasn’t been able to capitalize on that possession advantage this season, as they are currently 1-2 on the year.

2. Stephen Robarge – Denver Outlaws (3-for-5)

Last weekend, Robarge got his first opportunity at the X this season, and he certainly delivered, going 3-for-5 at midfield. Between the veteran Kelly and third-year face off specialist Robarge, Denver coach B.J. O’Hara clearly has two great FOGO options, which is yet another strength of this Outlaws team. 

3. Anthony Kelly – Denver Outlaws (45-for-72)

The MLL’s all-time leader in face off wins had a dominant 11-for-18 performance last week against the Boston Cannons. Kelly also reached a personal milestone on Saturday, taking the 2500th face off of his career.
