Fordham Prep Lacrosse for Others





Rivalries in sports have always brought out the best in people, as well the athletes competing. No matter a team's record, rivalries such as the Red Sox/Yankees, Boston College/Notre Dame, Harvard/Yale, Auburn/Alabama and Amherst/Williams always sell out and please the crowds immensely. That said, the Fordham Prep vs Iona Prep lacrosse rivalry follows the same path. The two teams, a mere 12 miles apart, are made up of players, many of which are friends off the field, meet three times a year in nail biting performances each time. Games are more often than not decided by just one goal, and have the crowd on their feet for the majority of the contest.  However, the battles the two teams go through on the field are nothing compared to that of our country's soldiers and veterans. We only need to look at the recent events at the Boston Marathon to know that we continue to live in a dangerous world. 

We have all seen the commercials on television.  Wounded veterans returning from Iraq or Afghanistan having lost a limb or limbs or with severe burns to large parts of their body.  These are young men and women, not much older than players at Fordham Prep and Iona.  They are rebuilding their lives and need our help. 

Part of the mission statement for both Fordham Prep and Iona is service to others.  That is why, for the 2013 Fordham Prep vs Iona Prep JV and Varsity Lacrosse games on May 3rd, the games will act as a fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project. The game can typically draw upwards of three hundred people, many of whom are students who want nothing more than to be able to storm the field after a win. In all, this rivalry brings out the best in both schools, and playing the game for a cause such as the Wounded Warrior Project would be an honor for both teams. We thank you for your generous donation.

Go Rams.
