“212 continues to play for two former teammates of mine at North Carolina, Neill Redfern (battling cancer) and Eric Seremet (recently widowed). Our kids break every huddle with “S14”. The acronym stands for Eric’s last name and Neill’s number at Carolina. The message for the kids to play for someone other than themselves is unifying and they all continue to play very hard for Eric and Neill. I’m extremely proud of all the 212 kids. As always, a big thank you to the entire 212 Lacrosse community. The support the parents show myself and our staff continues to be tremendous. I’d also like to thank all of our coaches; Brian Bilzi (D1- Manhattan College), Court Durling (D1- Virginia), Chantz Hower, Christian Pompoco, Alec Meyer, Michael Burbank, Craig Cordial, Bryan Davis, Pete Iacobelli, and Adam Procino. We’d also like to thank Hall of Fame coach Fred Acee for coming to Utah the week before the tournament to coach all of our teams. Also, thank you to the Utah Lacrosse Association for putting on a great event.”
