Connor Buczek Discusses Transitioning To Box Lacrosse

The transition from field to box lacrosse is not an easy one, but if anyone is up for the challenge it is the newest member of the Toronto Rock, Connor Buczek. According to Cornell head coach Matthew Kerwicz, his work ethic will shine on any field, “He is one of the toughest, fieriest players I have worked with. He loves to compete every day.”

The Cornell graduate had quite the impressive collegiate resume including being named Ivy League All First Team three years in a row. He finished at Cornell with 106 goals, 49 assists for 155 points before being drafted by the Florida Launch in the Major Lacrosse League.

Buczek is the first to admit that it won’t be an easy transition to field lacrosse, saying that he only played briefly growing up, “I honestly am still trying to figure out how to transition. I coach at Cornell and I know we have a couple of box lacrosse players on our roster, so hopefully they can help me out. I am going to have to rely on some friends and hopefully gets some good advice when I get there and figure it out on the fly.”

Kerwick is one of the former box lacrosse players that is ready to step up and help out. He says he will definitely help Buczek out when it comes to being around the cage, but believes Buczek physical ability will help make for an easy transition, “He has the physical side for sure. He is big and strong and that will help make the transition smooth. He is also a fast learner and ready to put in the work.”

Buczek says he is excited for the work ahead, “It’s a great game. The National Lacrosse League does a great job and they pack up the arenas. It’s a fun game to play, so the opportunity to play more lacrosse was the reason I wanted to join the NLL. “

As for joining the Rock, Buczek says he has been to Toronto once before and loved the city. He says he can’t wait to be back and playing the sport that he loves.
