Inside the December Edition of US Lacrosse Magazine

Digital Edition

On June 22, former Army player Capt. Ben Harrow strapped on his prosthetic legs to play lacrosse for the first time since losing both of his lower limbs in an IED explosion in Afghanistan. It was not a big media event, though Shootout for Soldiers went on to raise $465,000 in eight cities. But in his journey from the lacrosse field to the battlefield and back, Harrow represented the best of lacrosse. We are honored to tell his story ("All the Way," page 32) and feature him on the cover of our annual Best of Lacrosse edition that reaches US Lacrosse members this week.
