Every year that I coach this great game something occurs that shows you how special our sport is.

As you may have heard a young lacrosse player (Jack Enright) was injured a few weeks ago and is rehabbing at the Shepherd Center.  Everyone in the Atlanta Youth Lacrosse community and around the country has rallied around Jack.

One of our Coaches Richard Kopleman started “Ground Balls for Jack” where his team raised money for every ground ball they picked-up during this weeks ...
