These young men's accomplishments on the field and for their charitable cause are impressive (and I think lacrosse is a wonderful sport), but I hope they aren't shortchanging their academic opportunities just to play "scholarship" lacrosse. Lots of better schools have highly competitive club teams and they might end up with a much better resume. Mesa State College? Really?

At Reasonable, you have no right saying that they could achieve more than mesa state. Not too many students these days get offered scholarships for playing sports. What if these families can't afford to send their children to a top notch CSU or UC? Mesa State is a wonderful college and you are very disrespectful. You should have no involvement whatsoever with sports. Short changing their academic opportunities...who the hell do you think you are? YOU ARE THE REASON WHY TEANS HATE PLEASANTON. People like you piss teens off. Whenever they achieve something, it is somehow not good enough.
