Quote: St. John's Coach Jason Miller - "Coaches love this type of athlete. First here, last to leave. Always shooting extra. Does everything right. Very reliable. Rarely makes mistakes. Quality kid.” This game is a gift from the Creator,"says Leo Nolin, who played lacrosse for Syracuse from 1968-70, but grew up playing the game as a member of the Onondaga Nation in upstate New York."For us, it's a medicine game, a healing game, a community game and a spiritual game. It's really our national sport. But it's not just a sport for us, it's a way of life."
