New Jersey HS Student Raises Awareness, Gathers Resources for HLL

Lucius DeGregorio- a freshman at Bergen Catholic (NJ) – is the same age as many of the boys walking around Harlem with lacrosse sticks. But his age didn’t stop him from initiating an impressive giving movement. Working alongside his father (Joe DeGregorio), Tri-State Lacrosse Director Ross Turco, and Ridgewood Lacrosse (NJ) parent Eric Bachmann, Lucius collected nearly three truckloads of equipment to benefit HLL Laxers. This dedicated team gathered and delivered helmets, gloves, lacrosse jerseys, shorts, and an array of lacrosse goals directly to Frederick Douglass Academy. Ridgewood Lacrosse donated five lacrosse goals over the span of two months.

Lucius will be helping over the summer as a volunteer at the first annual HLL Summer Leadership Academy, where many of the participants will be using gear donated by him and his peers.
