This spring, Northern Review sports editor Grant Pepper will be following the Ohio Northern men's lacrosse team as they enter their third year of competition. After finishing seventh in the OAC in year one and fifth in year two, the Polar Bears are looking to contend for their first conference crown in 2018.

Episode five of this running video series takes a look inside the most geographically diverse locker room on campus. Of the 47 players listed on the men’s lacrosse team’s roster this year, only 16 are from Ohio. 13 different states are represented, with players coming from Colorado, Massachusetts, and everywhere in between.

This episode explains why national recruiting is such a focus for head coach Nat St. Laurent and his staff, why kids from across the country are willing to commit to a school in Ada, OH, and how this phenomenon mirrors the game’s migration toward the Midwest.

Here is episode five of this developing series:
