More than 50 Philly boys’ and girls’ lacrosse standouts will be honored when the LXM PRO 610 recognizes its “Future Stars” during its Oct. 9 tour stop at Radnor High.
The event begins at 2 p.m. with live music, followed by an LXM PRO game featuring such stars as Mikey Powell, Kyle Harrison, Zack Greer and Shamel & Rhamel Bratton and locally Max Ritz (Radnor) and Brett Moyer (Ridley).
After the game, all youth and high school players are invited to attend a number of free clinics run by the pro players. Skills will include shooting and stick skills, defense and goalie instruction and many other aspects of the game.
During the event the LXM PRO 610 “Futures” boys’ and girls’ high school stars from Philly will be honored based on their accomplishments in high school and tournament games.
Ritz, along with brother Xander Ritz and as well as fellow Maryland alums Scott and Craig Hochstadt and Johns Hopkins grad Harrison, initially created LXM PRO to help promote lacrosse in non-traditional hotbeds. They have expanded some of the tours to Eastern hotbeds; they held an event July 4 weekend at the Under Armour All-American Games.
The LXM PRO events feature a mixture of pro lacrosse, live music, top-notch clinics on many skills, the Fan Zone and interaction between lacrosse fans in a carnival-type atmosphere. There also will be numerous vendors. Last year’s event at Radnor drew over 3,400 people.
