CHESAPEAKE BAYHAWKS (CB): What have you been doing in the off-season to prepare for this summer?
DANNY GLADING (DG):I've just been staying as active as I can. I play a lot of basketball and play in an indoor soccer league. Also, through helping coach a 4th and 5th grade winter lacrosse clinic, I've been able to keep a stick in my hands.
CB: What motivates you to stay in the league and give your all every weekend in the summer?
DG: We have a great group of people within the Bayhawks organization on the field and behind the scenes. We also have a growing fan base with little kids who look forward to watching us play.
CB: How did you first get involved in the sport of lacrosse? Who, if anyone, inspired you to start playing?
DG: My first team was when I was a 3rd grader. Like a lot of kids with older siblings, I looked up to my other brothers Billy and Matt and would have played whichever sports they were playing at the time. Luckily, they both stuck with lacrosse and I tagged along as usual.
CB: Outside of lacrosse, what are you passionate about?
DG: Recently I have become somewhat of an avid reader. My mom was an English teacher for many years and I swear has read almost every book in print...so I normally rely on her suggestions.
CB: What is your favorite weekend activity?
DG: If the weather is going to be nice, I am normally scrambling around on Thursday and Friday afternoons to round-up a foursome for golf. Although very challenging and frustrating at times, golf with a fun group of family or friends is my favorite weekend activity.
