Saxton Dunlap’s Next Step Is One That Needs A Wide Net To Be Cast

Saxton Dunlap’s Next Step Is One That Needs A Wide Net To Be Cast

Across The LAX World, Featured Posts, Florida Lacrosse News, Lee's Corner
  The lacrosse goal is 6 by 6. The net we need as a lacrosse community is a good deal wider. But the good news is we need to only score one goal in it. And that goal only needs one assist. But it also needs a lot of passes to set it up.   Saxton Dunlap was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoma in May, 2020. He needs to find a matching donor so he can have a stem cell or bone marrow transplant.  The best chance of finding a match is with someone who shares the same genetic heritage. Because Saxton is African American/White, his best chance of a match is with someone who is also multi-racial.  That's the goal.  Let's get to work.  Spread the news to all we know. And put this one in the win column.   Here's the link: SAXTON'S ARMY WHAT YOU CAN DO J...

  We'll start with an update on Saxton Dunlap, as he is searching for a stem cell/bone marrow donor and we will put that article up this weekend. And while his journey is just starting, we have GREAT NEWS on Jacob Webb Jr.!  That is going up today too. On Wednesday and Thursday this week I was up in Vero Beach for the Prospects Games, which due to the CCP's virus, was cut back quite a lot from the original event, which was a major showcase combined with club events for the high schools. The weather was better than the past weekend in the same location and the high school division, although down to 12 teams, was packed with top talent.  Ponte Vedra, Benjamin, Lake Highland, Berkeley Prep, St. Thomas Aquinas, Western, Bishop Moore, Nease, Montverde, etc.  And plenty of top p...
