Lyle Thompson Quote"I was born into this game. My father put a wooden lacrosse stick in my hands the day I was born, and my stick quickly became my best friend. I would sleep with it and touch it every day regardless of the elements. I was fortunate to grow up surrounded by competitive athletes every time I stepped out the back door. The opportunity to learn from my older brothers on and off the field has been what has made me who I am today. They were my teammates, competitors, and idols. I wanted the strength of Jeremy, to be as smooth as Hiana, and to have the brains of Miles, and I worked to make it happen by watching and listening, playing divisions above and sometimes three advanced levels. Playing at the U19 World Lacrosse Games was my biggest eye-opener, I was fifteen years old going up against nineteen-year-old men who had already played a year of D1 lacrosse. That was when I knew I wanted to play lacrosse at the highest level. Lacrosse has been a vehicle for me and continues to be. I believe I’ve been given the opportunity to make a difference, and I want to be able to impact others’ lives the way my brothers have impacted mine."
