Lacrosse is a very fast growing sport and being able to make a living out of lacrosse is a dream. I would love to be able to show up to a lacrosse camp, have kids smile and get excited when they saw me and I would love to be able to give back to a community that has given me so much. I would take lacrosse to corners of the world that no one thought it could go. I would start teams in countries that needed it and give children the opportunity to fall in love with a sport with great roots. Giving a child or teenager something to fall in love with is hard to do these days. With some children not wanting to play football, soccer, rugby, hockey, or any of the other popular sports, lacrosse can quickly grab the position of the favorite. A child that feels like they have nothing to look forward to can have their life changed when something comes into their life such as lacrosse just because it gives them something to look forward to at the end of the day. I feel like if I were to give a child the opportunity to say the saying used by many lacrosse players “Lax is Life” then I have given them something truly special.
