Choosing Compassion Over Hatred:  How Gabe Clark Overcame Racial Adversity

Choosing Compassion Over Hatred: How Gabe Clark Overcame Racial Adversity

Across The LAX World, Celebrating The Game, Featured Posts, Florida Lacrosse News, Lee's Corner, Youth/Club
  Lee’s Note:  Gabe Clark is a very impressive young man.  Never mind the fact that he is a top-notch player who is looking at a possible D1 lacrosse future or that he is looking at several terrific academic institutions that are D3.  Or that he is a leader among his peers.  None of that prepares you for the unexpected life event that propels you to prominence; life does not always run on your chosen timetable.  Sometimes life choses you, not the other way around.  I’m confident Gabe understands that, as you will see below. For the few reading this and wondering about what this is about, there was a youth club lacrosse event in Orlando last weekend and during the semifinals of one of the two high school brackets an incident occurred where racial slurs were used by a few members ...

  Well, it's been a pretty intense day.  And as the situation plays out I want to bring the readers up to date as well as make sure a few things are addressed right away. The fact gathering is continuing and Sweetlax Florida has put out a tweet this afternoon: https://twitter.com/Sweetlax_Fla/status/1288200445937299458 This is an acknowledgement and those words were likely carefully chosen to indicate that they are taking full responsibility for what is found out and the fact that a club team is named in this makes it clear where the investigation is pointing to.   And that leads me into an important point that needs emphasizing, because I didn't mention it in my last post: There is no reason whatsoever to attach any blame on the event itself, or the organizers o...
My Turn to Apologize

My Turn to Apologize

Across The LAX World, Featured Posts, Florida Lacrosse News, Lee's Corner
  Late yesterday, after the Orlando Faceoff event ended I was informed that racial slurs were sent at 3 players from another team and that one of the families would reach out to me to give me details.  I have not heard from that family yet as I write this. The story has been sent through social media to Kyle Harrison, who published the following on his Twitter:     I clicked on the tweet and started to read the comments and came across a comment by Jeff Katz, which I assumed was the details of what happened. This is what I read: One of my U11 players was called the N-word. He told me. I called a TO and told the opposing coach. He talked to his player. The player walked over & apologized. Then he was sent home from the tourney. He was the their best...
