LAS Presents: We’re San Francisco, and We Grow The Game


This week, we’re excited to release our newest Grow The Game video piece featuring youth lacrosse players from the San Francisco Bay Area. The footage was collected last Fall, on the last day of the Grow The Game Tour, during our time at Kezar Stadium for the San Francisco Fall Classic featuring Ohio State vs. Lehigh.

Our day at Kezar was made possible thanks to the good people of the Bay Area Youth Sports Foundation (BAYS) who run the event, and GTG Tour donor Doug Appleton. Thanks to BAYS, we were supplied with space inside the venue and granted press access during the game.

Meanwhile, Doug introduced us to Lacrosse for LIFE, a non-profit organization that provides year-round lacrosse and education programs in underserved communities of San Francisco. We were able to meet up with a small group from Lacrosse for LIFE before the game started. A few rounds of LAS Cornhole and a couple of impromptu stick trick sessions later, and everyone enjoyed a fun, low key Sunday afternoon.

Special thanks to my sister Cassie, who volunteered to film, and Mark Donahue for editing the footage. Also, a big shout out to all those who volunteered to step in front of the camera that day – Thanks representing your hometown and sharing your passion for the game!

Founder of Lacrosse All Stars. A West Coast native and product of the MCLA, I moved back East after college where I truly fell in love with the game. I've dedicated my career to LaxAllStars since 2010, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I now live in my hometown of Boise, Idaho, with my wife Zoë, two dogs, and a baby girl expected to arrive around Championship Weekend this May. I'm a technologist at heart, I'm not into snow or the month of January, and one time I kind of stole a football from Gary Gait. Life is crazy busy, but it's worth it when you get to immerse yourself in the medicine of lacrosse every day. We are on a mission to Grow The Game® on a global scale by empowering storytelling by players, for players, and bridging the gap between lacrosse and the mainstream.
