Tournament of Champions Coaches Receive Glory Hound Balls

Austin, TX – Coaches participating in the Dick’s Sporting Goods 2011 Tournament of Champions, December 31-January 2, were presented with custom engraved Glory Hound balls at a special coaches reception. NDP Lacrosse, event coordinator for Dick’s Sporting Goods tournaments, purchased over fifty hand-colored balls with cases as a thank you gift for these dedicated coaches from across the country.

“We were extremely happy with the product and the coaches absolutely loved them!”, said Brian Tatum of NDP Lacrosse. “ The balls make a very nice and affordable gift.”

Derek Craig, of Glory Hound Lacrosse, stated that “Being part of a national event like the T.O.C. has been a dream for us and it’s great to know the balls are going to such a great group of people who give so much of themselves.”

“The ability to color the engraving is a new thing”, he added. “We’ve been working on a way to add color for several months and are pleased with the results; they really stand out in a case and a gold or silver, like we used for the T.O.C. balls, adds some class.”

Glory Hound Lacrosse offers custom engraved balls and display cases, along with their exclusive engraved display shafts handcrafted of solid cherry. For more information, visit or email
