Is it a bird, is it a plane? No, it’s Tom Schreiber. This week Captain America swoops in for 5 Questions.
Q1: What’s the full story behind the nickname Captain America?
A. Captain America originated from (Rock B/R Live Play by Play Announcer) Andy McNamara during my rookie season in Toronto. I’m certainly appreciative of it, but I’ve been slow to embrace it. I think there have been plenty of American players that have been successful in the NLL that are more deserving.
Q2: If you could have one superpower, what would it be??
A: The power to heal. I saw it in a lacrosse article and I remember thinking that would be the perfect power.
Q3: Why do you wear number 26??
It’s a tribute to my Dad. He wore #26 during his career. He’s been a huge part of my life and lacrosse career.
Q4: Favourite thing about East Meadow, New York?
A: My favourite thing about my hometown is the proximity to the beach. I grew up around the ocean and I love it.
Q5: Who is the best-dressed guy on the team??
A: Rob Hellyer. I’ve asked him for some tips for the last few years. Id like to think he’s helped me step up my wardrobe game.
