This thread is a mistake. It starts as a PR piece for the kid, his team, school, etc. Predictably then people feel the need to unfairly take the kid apart with bogus criticism. Either way, the result is some degree of distortion.
The thread is not a PR piece, it was posted as a re-print of a Newsday article - It would be great if BOTC does that with every Newsday feature and we can have a discussion on here about the article
Realizing that not everyone is a Cablevision subscriber with access to Newsday on-line, I will make every attempt to reprint with attribution all articles that come to me.
Let me say that I don't have or did have a child play lacrosse, and also state that I have no affiliation or interest with any lacrosse association, club, team, or tournament. BOTC is an independent publication.
