“Over the 2016 July Fourth weekend I participated in the World Series of Youth Lacrosse.
Traveling across the country to Denver, Colorado I sat in a room with my team and the top 1% of U13 Lacrosse players in the world. Even though we all came from different places all 400 of us shared the same level of anticipation and love of lacrosse. I knew every kid there could imagine bringing home that trophy and we were all defiantly excited about receiving a custom warp, complements of Warrior.
No matter what the score was at the end of each game it was a great opportunity to play against such great teams. Our first game we played Colorado Crush and I remember my first goal when after a successful clear I crossed the midfield line and was fed the ball, dodged to my left, and scored with my off hand. It felt amazing to get the first points on the board. During the tournament we played in three fierce overtime battles. I remember taking a big shot were the ball hit pipe but went in forcing overtime in the last minutes of one of those games. I wouldn’t have been able to have this experience without my amazing parents as well as my coaches, Coach Harris, Coach Geddis, and Coach Lamon. Thank you for a great season. I’d also like to thank Casey Powell and the Word Lacrosse Foundation for supporting our team. Finally I’d like to thank my teammates for working hard and playing hard. Although we didn’t make it to the championship I had the time of my life.”
