Jake Seau, a midfielder out of the Bishop’s School in California has verbally committed to Duke, and is the son of former NFL linebacker Junior Seau. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jake and his entire family, as several news outlets are reporting that Junior Seau has died, apparently as a result of suicide.
We know this is an incredibly difficult time for the Seau family, and we just want to offer our support, and the support of the entire lacrosse community to everyone affected by this sad news. We hope the local California lacrosse community can rally around the Seau family and the Bishop’s School as the facts continue to be released.
If you know someone who is contemplating suicide or you are thinking of suicide yourself, PLEASE reach out for help immediately. A good place to start is the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
