Favorite Lacrosse Memory: My most favorite lacrosse memory would have to be right around the time when I picked up the game in 7/8th grade. I had always played football and I was playing roller hockey, and was about to start playing goalie for the local youth rec league, but I never had a major interest in them. Then one day my friend Arren brought over a lacrosse stick and ball and told me he was going to start playing in our hometown. I had no idea what lacrosse was and it was probably only the second time I had ever seen a stick in my life, but that day we started playing catch (taking turns switching between a baseball glove and the stick). I was pretty much hooked from the first day and went and got my own stick soon after, and also dropped hockey to join the lacrosse team with my friend. Overall it is my favorite lacrosse memory because I remember how much I loved to play right from the start and it introduced me to something that will always, in some way, be a part of my life.
