When asked to name a major professional sport a common answer would be football, basketball, or baseball. Lacrosse would probably not be one of those sports named. That could soon change.

Ryan Flanagan plays professional lacrosse for the Charlotte Hounds and has seen a tremendous growth to the sport over the last few years.

"I want to say the sport is growing 50% to 60% a year," said Flanagan.

 The Hounds Defenseman started a program in Charlotte in 2010, Team 24/7 Lacrosse.

"I always wanted to be a part of lacrosse after I graduated school," said Flanagan. "Started this club program back then and it's been growing ever since."
