I am a dad but not the kids dad but a dad of another competitor. I posted it because it was well deserved and he is the champion of 2021. Lacrosse has been a tight nit community over the years. And should remain that way. after the competition we all respect each other and usually get along. Don't diminish a 12 year olds achievement because you probably never won anything. It is very clear this young man works hard at his craft and also the competition was very good.
Well said. The true competitors root for the other teams that they have mutual respect for. I'm not sure who the kid is, but one kid from 91 Orange I route for all the time. He is an excellent player, a great kid, and even though he isn't on my son's team, they have become friends through mutual friends. I hope he is the champ. I also pull for teams my son's team has lost to. They are 12 year old kids, and except for the true cheaters, I respect all of the teams out there.
