End Caps – Final Push

End Caps 11/24

Unfortunately the LXM game, and tournament, that was supposed to be played today in Arizona was cancelled due to terrible weather. It’s really unfortunate, but they found a place to hold indoor clinics for the kids, and that seemed pretty cool. Hopefully the weather cooperates the next couple stops, my bet is Vegas will be bright and sunny.

One last time, you can make a donation to HEADstrong in my poor, poor mustache’s honor. Here we go!

High School lacrosse player in the NFL

Apparently I played lacrosse in high school against a current NFL wide receiver. I knew about quite a few guys that I played with or against that went on to play D1 football at respectable schools, most of them dropped lacrosse toward the end of high school. Griff Whalen of the Indianapolis Colts didn’t quit in high school, he was a stud midfielder. Griff was a year older than me in school but his team, Sylvania, would always face my team, Pickerington, usually once in the regular season and typically we would meet again in the playoffs.

I’m not not going to lie, we got smashed. At that time both teams played in the club division in Ohio because they were made up of multiple schools playing together.

Griff decided to go to Stanford with hopes of walking on the football team. That he did, but he also played for the Cardinals lacrosse team during his freshman year before starting to really excel at football. Griff was a star receiver at Stanford and eventually found his way to the Colts. It’s pretty cool to find out you got stomped on the lax field by a guy playing in the NFL.
