This week on the OTCBPodcast, we welcome back our good friend Rich Lisk to the show. Fully settled into his new home ON Long Island, Lisk and his staff are working diligently through the pandemic in hopes that the league will indeed be playing come April. An April start means a lot of things for the world of lacrosse- and for the Riptide that may mean a certain college player may be eligible to sign, But it would also mean crossing over the traditional summer time slot so what happens then? And what will all the players do until April?We'll talk about all that and more, on this week's OTCBPodcast.
This week on the #OTCBPodcast we welcome back Rich Lisk from the New York Riptide and GFSports. After making the tough decision to leave The Casino for The Island, Lisk had an even tougher decision in relieving GM/HC Regy Thorpe and his coaching staff of their duties. It won't be easy turning a 1-12 expansion team into a #Premier club in the NLL but with #Passion #Pride and #Promise, Lisk already has a plan in place. Plus, the #NLLAwards nominees will be announced by the end of June with an online award show to take place in July. The Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame announced it's class of 2020 and the Premier Lacrosse League is going to Utah!All that and more on this week's #OTCBPodcast.

SportsJam with Doug Doyle: New York Riptide and GF Sports Executive VP Rich Lisk
Rich Lisk, the Executive VP of of the NLL's New York Riptide and GF Sports , has quite a story of success and survival. Lisk, the latest guest on SportsJam with Doug Doyle, talks about how he beccame a sports marketing guru, his love of the Jersey Shore and now Long Island, and how sports helped him deal with "the nightmare" of growing up in an abusive household. Lisk has more than 25 years experience in the sports industry. Prior to joining GF sports, he was General Manager for the New England Black Wolves (NLL) where he was named GM of the Year in 2016. The Rutgers University graduate was also the GM of the Philadelphia Soul (AFL) and President and GM of the East Coast Hockey League's Trenton Titans, an affiliate of the Philadephia Flyers (NHL). Rich was brought on during the later stages of the New York Riptide's inaugural season in 2020 and has already established a great rapport with business partners and the community. That season was cut short by the coronavirus outbreak.

We talk about the expansion draft losses, the deal to get Jordan Durston and how he will mesh with 1st round pick Andrew Kew, the potential that Jarrod Neumann has in the NLL and how a six game home stand and fewer Sunday home games is going to affect the Black Wolves this season.As always a big thank you to our partners, Pure Vita Labs and Associated Labels and Packaging.

This week on the OTCBPodcast we welcome back the GM of the New England Black Wolves, Rich Lisk. Every time Rich is on the show, it's great; this time was no exception. It's been a busy off season for the Black Wolves and Lisk has been at the centre of it with the NLL Draft and off-season acquisitions. But while he's focused on turning the Black Wolves into a bonafide contender in the newly realigned East division, he's also got a ton of incredible stories to tell about his time working for the WWF. Those experiences have helped him become a more savvy sports business person and in his role as GM in the NLL. So sit back and relax as Rich and I chat life, lax and the squared circle this week on the OTCBPodcast.
The first weekend of NLL Preseason action is in the books and boy was there some intense action. We'll check in with Derek Keenan and Rich Lisk to see how their teams did. The NLL announced the date they'll unveil their new Logo, and NLLTV has a rare gem that I'd rather not remember. All that and more, on this week's OTCBPodcast
