Greenwich Youth Lacrosse dedicated the 2019 season to our dear friend Ed McGuinn who passed away in October 2018. Ed was a giant in the lacrosse world on so many levels. He was a respected coach and was a long-time referee at the youth, high school, and collegiate levels.
Ed was a founding board member of GYL and helped launch the program that serves as a role model for many other towns. He was instrumental helping our close friends at CityLax (NYC Docs) take their program to the next level.
Every player across GYL’s house league and travel program wore a memorial decal on their uniform or helmet. On Sunday May 12th GYL hosted 9 boys and girls travel teams from NYC Docs. We always look forward to our friendly annual games but this year was extra special as we remembered Ed. He made a difference in the growth of lacrosse and the growth of young people in our programs.
Ed honored the game every time he stepped on the field. Now we are honoring Ed and his amazing legacy. Rest in peace – we miss you.
