Zack Dorn is a regular guy from Chicago who loves to play lacrosse and possesses the ability to shoot a lacrosse ball 116 mph plus. He works at lacrosse retailer The Lax Shop in Chicago, IL, where he fired off a non-official world record of 118 mph using an Epoch Dragonfly Gen.5 C30 shaft and some Otter Mesh that he grabbed off the shelf. It wasn’t long before a video of Zack’s 118 mph hit the Internet and went viral. Word spread quickly and with the encouragement of his friends, Zack set a goal to break the record of 114 mph and have it officially recognized. As fate would have it, an opportunity presented itself and he was off to Boston to attend Major League Lacrosse’s All-Star Weekend with the goal of winning the fast shot contest in the fan zone and earn himself a chance to go against the pros at halftime.
The following is a trailer that gives you a behind the scenes look at Zack’s preparation prior to the contest.
