As part of our trip to the tournament in Annapolis we arranged a tour of Georgetown.  Travis Comeau, who worked for The Lacrosse Program in the Fall of 2008, is a student at Georgetown.  Travis plays for the Georgetown lacrosse team and is a sophomore at the school.  Last year as a freshman he was second in team in scoring with 25 goals and 5 assists.  That is a huge accomplishment for the young man out of Red Deer.  Travis embodies perseverance.  As a small player he has always had to work hard for everything he gets.  He takes a beating and finds a way to score goals.  Russ Sheppard, a great lacrosse coach and mentor, identified Travis’ talents and suggested he attend The Hill Academy to hone his skills.  After convincing his parents that The Hill Academy was a good opportunity he left home and played under Brodie Merrill.  It was there that he was able to showcase his scoring ability and this led to his recruitment to Georgetown.

We made contact with Travis and he arranged for us to meet at the Georgetown campus.  After a great meal in the Georgetown area he took us on a tour of the campus.  We visited the Hoyas playing field, the John Thompson trophy room, the basketball practice facility and a couple of academic buildings.  It was a great experience for the kids and it hit home for a lot of them.  They saw the possibility of one day going to college and maybe playing college lacrosse.  The Georgetown campus is beautiful and I was thankful that Travis was able to spend some time with the kids and share his time at Georgetown.  It was a one of the highlights of the trip.  Check out the video below of our tour.
