The 6th annual Boston Lax All-American game is fast approaching, and is scheduled for this Monday, July 9, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. at Xaverian Brothers High School in Westwood, Massachusetts.
The game features top talent in the MIAA and ISL, together on one field, participating in a fun and exciting exhibition All-Star game.
Proceeds from the game will go to benefit the Bruce Lerch Memorial Scholarship Fund.
The Bruce Lerch Fund and our Bruce Lerch Player of the Year award are named after our former Editor-In-Chief and dear friend, Bruce Lerch, who was so instrumental in growing and covering the game of lacrosse in Massachusetts.
The players who were chosen for the game were selected from the All-American game selection process by the BostonLax staff. All first-team Eastern Massachusetts Lacrosse Coaches Association and ISL Super Team Members were the first two waves of players named and all received automatic invitations. The remaining players were selected by our BostonLax staff, with recommendations from Massachusetts coaches, scouts, and media.
Team Hammer will wear their white uniform (please bring your school jersey and shorts)
Team Shield will wear their dark uniform (please bring your school jersey and shorts)
*Goalies bring throat guards as well.
The game will faceoff at 6:30 p.m. and players should arrive at 4:30 p.m. on Monday, prior to the game at the Xaverian Brothers football/lacrosse field at the Hawk Bowl.
Players will receive new donated STX Helmets.
Each player under MIAA and NCAA rules must make a donation to Boston Lax for the gear or else eligibility can be subject to suspension. Proceeds will go to the Bruce Lerch Fund.
This year we will be announcing our two major awards winners at halftime of the event:
2017 Bruce Lerch Player of the Year – John Piatelli ’17 – St. Sebastian’s
2017 Tony Manzelli Coach of the Year – Andrew Lavalle – Wakefield
We look forward to seeing the lacrosse community come out in full force on Monday night!
