Nate played at Dickinson University. While there he earned awards for Warrior/USILA DIII All-American, Co-National Long Stick Midfielder of the year, Centennial Conference Defensive Player of the Year, and consistently leading the league in takeaways and ground balls. Nate used a TMT 6 diamond classic pocket throughout his career at Dickinson University. Nate currently plays for the Atlanta Blaze.
Nate on why he chose TMT : “When I switched to traditional, I saw my game change for the better. I got more ground balls, threw better passes, and enjoyed carrying the ball. It was a huge party of my success in college and it will continue to put me ahead at the next level. For long sticks and defensemen, a TMT pocket can be an absolute vacuum and you will start getting gbs you thought were impossible.”
Nate’s pocket of choice: 6 diamond Classic Pocket with Brown Leathers and LaxRoom Platinum Crosslace.

James is from Boxford, Massachustts and went to St. John’s Prep in Danvers, MA. He played at UMass Amherst College until he graduated in 2014 . James played in the USILA North-South All-Star Game as well as the NEILA East-West Senior Game. He was ranked first in the CAA and 29th nationally in caused turnovers per game. James walked onto the Boston Cannons in 2016 through an open try-out. Later that season, he was awarded the 11th Man of the Year for the Cannons. Jame was recently voted as an MLL All Star in 2019.
James on why he chose TMT: “(I) used a traditional pita pocket in college for two years. Loved the feel of using leathers over mesh. The ball doesn’t move around nearly as much once the leathers finally break in. Over all, playing with a traditional pocket makes the stick feel lighter while paying homage to the pockets that were used in the games inception. I used to string my own pockets up-till I learned about TMT and how easy and convenient installing these pockets can be. I send in my specifications of the pocket I want and what colors should be incorporated and all I have to worry about is using a top string and two sidewalls to complete the head. In the MLL, it’s difficult to maintain any stick due to the constant traveling and intense play. But, with TMT pockets, they are strung just tight enough where everything can break in smoothly. “
James pocket of choice: 7 diamond Pita Pocket with White Leathers and Red Crosslace.
