Hi Bill,

There's a great NorCal/SoCal story that I am not sure you know. Bryan Cooper, the La Costa Canyon senior goalie, played in Pleasanton Lacrosse program through the seventh grade. I saw a note from his dad, Dave Cooper, today that Bryan was named All American (not sure which one), First Team San Diego area CIF, All League, and MVP of LCC (who finished 22-1). Dave was a big contributor to PLC as a coach. In their last year at PLC before relocating Dave/Bryan's team won the NCJLA U13A championship. That's an incredible string of youth goalies from PLC with Ben Krebs, Patrick Shevelson, and Bryan Cooper back to back to back. You may have seen Bryan in Vail years ago, but I am not sure. Hope all is well with you. Congrats to JW's freshman season!
