Please join me in congratulating Dylan Keenan, Class of 2019 Emmaus High School, for being the first Stars & Stripes Lacrosse Alumni to officially commit to play lacrosse in college. Dylan will be playing for the Alfred University Saxons in the Division III Empire 8 Conference in upstate New York. While Dylan started playing lacrosse a few years later than his younger brother, Jack (who was already a Stars & Stripes player), he knew he had to work harder to catch up. Dylan’s work ethic and positive attitude allowed him to overcome his late start and positions him for success in both college and life. When we created the purpose statement for Stars & Stripes Lacrosse, “teaching boys how to become men by playing with a ball and a stick”, Dylan was the type of man we envisioned as the end game. We know Tom, Krista, and Jack are very proud of Dylan’s accomplishments to date and we look forward to joining them keep tabs on his collegiate success as well. Go “storm the hill”, Dylan! The world awaits.
