Watch: Lacrosse player pulls off ‘ridiculous’ behind the back assist
Paul Rabil’s ‘around the world pass’ was scored in an all-star game in Los Angeles.
Lacrosse star Paul Rabil pulled off a “ridiculous” assist in an all-star game in Los Angeles.
Rabil, 33, used a move described by commentators as an “around the world pass” by flicking his stick behind his head to confuse the opposition and gift it to a teammate in space – who promptly finished the move.
Sunday’s Premier Lacrosse League all-star game saw two sides lead by Trevor Baptiste and Matt Rambo face off in a thrilling match which finished 17-16 in favour of the former at the Banc of California Stadium.
The pass from Rabil, playing for Team Baptiste, is what had fans excited on Twitter however.
