You would think that after watching a full regular season of Lacrosse, attending three tournaments (two of which were road trips), competing in the Provincials two weeks ago, writing a post about Sports and Coaching, I would have had enough of the sport. It’s hard to get away from it with a son who can’t wait for field to start days after Box finished!
I was all alone at home with no kids looking for things to write about and I found myself surfing through YouTube video’s of Paul Rabil. (don’t ask!) If you don’t know who Paul Rabil is he plays for the Washington Stealth, he is an incredible Lacrosse player who has a shot that was clocked at 111 miles an hour, goalies are crazy! He looks like a Greek God!
I found myself engulfed in Lacrosse video’s and came across one that stuck out from all the others, perfect for our Svaha Spirit Series. For some kids Lacrosse is more than a game, it’s how they survive life. Russ Sheppard, a teacher in Kugluktuk, made a difference in these kids lives by giving them a sport which in turn gave them hope!
