September’s Athlete of the Month
October 2, 2019
Were you active before CrossFit?
I was fortunate to have a long career playing lacrosse. I played college lacrosse at the University of Delaware. I then went on to play 11 seasons of professional Indoor (played on a hockey rink with Turf) and Outdoor lacrosse (played on a football field). I played from the Philadelphia Wings, whose home arena is the Wachovia Center, and the New York Titans, whose home arena was Madison Square Garden. I also lived in Vancouver playing for a team for two years. My first pro game was played in the Air Canada Center against the Toronto Rock in front of a sold out 21,000 crazy fans. We had food and drinks thrown on us and fans screaming and cursing at us as we were being announced. It was one of the greatest sports moments of my life! I also played for the USA Indoor National team, winning a bronze metal, which was an experience I can’t put into words!
