OTCBPodcast

This week on the #OTCBPodcast we go full EastCoast Lifestyle talking with Halifax's own Alex Pace and Halifax Thunderbirds' Coach Mike Accursi.But first, we send our condolences to the family of Dean Hill, who suddenly passed away earlier this week. Deaner was beloved by everyone and had a smile that lit up the room. He will be greatly missed and forever remembered.Alex Pace grew up playing lacrosse in Halifax but there were greener pastures in Ontario for his junior career to bloom. Now, entering his second year in the NLL, he's working with Northern Torch to help mould the next wave of Maritime lacrosse players.Mike Accursi has seen the interest in the game of lacrosse grow from the moment the Thunderbirds landed in Halifax. Their first season ended way too soon but the locals were already hooked, and he can't wait to get back to The Nest and finish what they started.Plus, the Roughnecks get a new look, the ALL in headed west, signing season continues and 8 players drafted are ruled ineligible. All that and more on this week's OTCBPodcast
