BostonLax All-American game on tap for Monday

6/16/2014

The second annual BostonLax All-American game takes place this evening at Boston University's Nickerson Field at 7 p.m.

Here's more on the event, which benefits the Wounded Warrior Project, from this weekend's press release:

BostonLax and TheLocker are teaming up to host the second annual BostonLax All-American Game on Monday, June 16 at Boston University’s Nickerson Field beginning at 7 p.m.

The top 56 High School lacrosse players from across Massachusetts will be competing to celebrate their accomplishments and to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. Donations can be made via check through Generation Lacrosse (all donors will receive a 501(c) for tax purposes) or directly to the Wounded Warrior Project.

“It’s a great honor to support the Wounded Warrior Project along with BostonLax and to give the state’s top players a chance to showcase their skills under the lights on Monday night,” said TheLocker Founder, Sean Morris. “Many of these players are engaging with one another over TheLocker and strengthening the tight knit community that is Massachusetts lacrosse. With the second annual BostonLax All-American game, we wanted to give these top youth players the opportunity to meet face-to-face on the field while giving back to those who make the ultimate sacrifice in defending our country.”

Players competing in the second annual All-American game represent schools from MIAA East, Central, West as well as private schools throughout the state. The price of admission is $10 at the gate and donations can be made online or at Nickerson Field located at 285 Babcock St in Boston during the game.
