Other comments: “I would first like to thank the Ridley Youth lacrosse program where I played from 2nd through 8th grade. Secondly, I would like to thank the Ridley High School coaching staff, headed by Coach Kevin Ellers and his father Doug. I’d especially like to thank the HEADstrong Lacrosse Club along with the coaches, Mike Colleluori, Brett Moyer, and Billy McGlone for giving me the opportunity to play in front of college coaches, where I was noticed and recruited. Lastly I want to thank my father for inventing The Wall which he constructed in my backyard, enabling me to practice everyday to better my stick and shooting skills all the way through high school. The Wall can be viewed at www.thesportswall.com.”

    I have had the pleasure to play with this kid and he is very talented. A hard worker, dynamic athlete, who absolutely snipes corners. Great job Kevin and never stop hitting the “wall” because it has made you the player that you are today.
