Lacrosse fans in Maryland may have heard of Olympian Jamie Allen and Long Island Express Lacrosse LLC. In Jan. 2005, Allen and four other people formed the limited liability company in order to coach pre-college lacrosse players, provide them with advice regarding recruiting and offer players and their families opportunities in the sport.
