What does HEADstrong mean to you? Being a coach for HEADstrong allows me to share my love and passion for the game of lacrosse with the next generation of student-athletes. This sport has given me so much — a college education, friends, a career and even allowed me to meet my wife. I’m grateful the opportunity to pay it forward and help open doors for kids to find those same opportunities I did.
