In the game of lacrosse, we frequently acknowledge the field players, but not very often do we recognize the players in the cage. In other words, the goalie. A high lacrosse IQ is needed to perform very well on the field, but also in the cage. Playing goalie is probably the hardest job because when the opponent has the ball the team is dependent on the goalie to direct the defense and possibly block the ball from touching the cage.
