Utah Lacrosse News: Describe your favorite lacrosse memory.
Christian Pompoco: My favorite lacrosse memory is when I attended the sandstorm shootout in Indio, California with Brady’s Bunch. It wasn’t my first tournament with Bunch, and it wasn’t the sick camo or the high level of play that made it such a great experience. It was my teammates and coaches that I played with, and the good vibes that I felt on and off the field. Everyone always says that Brady’s Bunch is more then a team, we’re a family. And that was exactly how I felt.
ULN: When/Where/Why did you first start playing lacrosse?
CP: I first started playing lacrosse in 8th grade in my hometown of Huntington Beach, California. The only reason I started playing lacrosse was because all my friends started to pick up the sport and I didn’t want to be left out. I guess the sport just grew on me.
