With today being the 16th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, the lacrosse community paid its respects via social media. This past weekend was also the start of the NFL season and a lot of players were wearing their team colors proudly. It's all in another offseason edition of the Social Media Roundup on MLL Press Box.
Today is a day to honor the memory of heroes from September 11 and Paul Rabil paid tribute to a very special person with ties to lacrosse. Welles Crowther was a former lacrosse player at Boston College who was working in the World Trade Center and helped rescue at least 10 people from the building's wreckage. He was wearing a red bandanna, which was the signature item he wore underneath his lacrosse helmet and kept with him at all times. Other players also posted pictures and inspiring messages to remember that tragic day.
"No greater love hath one than to lay down his life for his fellow man." On this day, each year, I watch the heroic story of Welles Crowther. He is a beacon of courage, hope, and sacrifice. We remember Welles and all who lost their lives during the attacks on 9/11. Link in bio.
