Lake Placid Field of Dreams

By Dan Witmer, 08/12/18, 2:45PM EDT


Dan Fuller was a good long-stick midfielder on a very good Baldwinsville High School team. He played two years of varsity lacrosse as the Bees had some of their most successful seasons in recent history. He earned Honorable Mention All-League honors this past May, and graduated in June.

In a few weeks, he’ll be heading down to Long Island to attend Long Island University – Post, an NCAA Division II college, and hopefully earn a spot on the Pioneers’ roster.

All very typical – nothing unusual or unique here… just another recruitable, blue-collar kid out of Upstate New York, from a league that includes some of the top programs in the state…

But for two days in Lake Placid last week, Dan experienced something pretty special. He got to play four games in the Men’s 18+ Gold division with the Burning Orange team, playing alongside a number of former Syracuse University alums whom he had idolized growing up.
