Welcome back to ouTTakes, a podcast that’s here to discuss Maryland sports from an inside perspective. We’ll be doing the show more regularly this year to shine a different light on Terps sport figures and allow you to get to know them as people.
This time, I talked to former Maryland men’s lacrosse standouts Matt Rambo (‘17) and Michael Ehrhardt (‘14), who were named Premiere Lacrosse League All-Stars in the league’s inaugural season. The pair play for the Whipsnakes, who are set to compete in the first ever PLL Championship on Saturday, Sept. 22. Rambo is up for the league’s Jim Brown MVP award and the Eamon McEneaney Attackman of the Year award, while Ehrhardt is a finalist for the Brodie Merrill Long Stick Midfielder of the Year award. The winners will be announced Thursday night.
The trio discuss the groundbreaking new era of pro lacrosse, playing on a team with 20 former Terps and how they expect to win it all. This is an exclusive conversation with two of the best lacrosse players in the world that you don’t want to miss.
Some highlights from this show:
- Rambo and Ehrhardt talk about the experience playing in the first ever season of the Premier Lacrosse League and the success of the Whipsnakes, which features 20 former Terps on the roster.
- Will the Whipsnakes win the PLL Championship? They expect to.
- We discuss the growing popularity of lacrosse and what it’s like to be a part of making that happen.
- Rambo explains where the Chef Rambo persona came from.
- The duo share what makes the Maryland men's lacrosse program so special.
