Tanner talks about growing up playing in the lacrosse-hotbed of Orangeville, ON, winning a Junior B Founders Cup, World Junior Gold, and Junior A Minto Cup back-to-back-to-back, the possibility of Junior players being granted an additional year because of the pandemic, and what's next heading into the upcoming National Lacrosse League (NLL) entry draft.
