Jerome Hiana Thompson

ONONDAGA COMMUNITY COLLEGE | NIKE ATHLETE | N7 AMBASSADOR | PROFESSIONAL LACROSSE PLAYER

" I walked into Lafayette public school in the fourth grade not knowing how to read or write English, it wasn't easy. It wasn't until the seventh grade I was introduced to field lacrosse within the schooling system. This helped me find a way to look forward to school and I learned that schooling had to be done in order to get on the field. Jeremy and I knew nothing about College lacrosse until after we won our first State title in Ninth grade. Fifteen years old and we were receiving letters in the mail from some of the top Division 1 Lacrosse programs in the country, it was a big deal for our family. The pressure was on, I needed to conquer school in order to play this game and although school didn't work out, I never let that stop me from playing professional lacrosse. I've been cut, I've been benched, and I will always stick around. I want to show our youth that even when the odds are against you, all it takes is a goal and a dream."
