Morgan Berman’s two brothers wouldn’t show much competitive fire when they’d practice lacrosse after school and on weekends growing up, but she would.
There was friendly smack talk, of course, in their sarcastic style.
“Like, ‘Oh yeah, nice save,’” Berman said. “But it wasn’t; I missed it.”
But if Berman sensed the goals were adding up, the Lambert senior goalie couldn’t help but get agitated. “I’d get a little angry,” she said. That’s fine by Berman now. “They pushed me to work harder,” she said
Men’s lacrosse Head Coach George McCormack first heard about this initiative through softball Head Coach Kris Herman, a co-founder of Team IMPACT. Since then he has been submitting a Team IMPACT application each year with the hopes of recruiting a child. Fortunately, Parker was matched with the men’s lacrosse team after his school physical therapist approached his parents, Melissa and Rob Langenback, about this exciting opportunity.
“When Parker’s school physical therapist contacted me and asked if we might be interested, we thought it sounded like a really good program,” Melissa Langenback said.
To celebrate the arrival of its newest team member, the team held a press conference and drafting ceremony in late February, during which Parker and his family signed a letter of intent. Melissa described the event as “amazing,” and the family was taken aback by the team’s enthusiasm and warmth. Parker would go on to receive his very own locker in the locker room, a lacrosse stick and a white No. 41 jersey with “Parker” emblazoned across the back.
What’s Up, Philly?
When the National Football League held its first players draft in 1936, picks for the league’s then nine teams were made at Philadelphia’s Ritz Carlton hotel.
Seventy-one years on the event will be a bit bigger - about 24 football fields bigger.
With the Benjamin Franklin Parkway set to be transformed into a football festival for an expected 200,000 fans later this month, police and city officials are finalizing the game plan for security and support.
“Everything’s going to be fine,” Mayor Kenney said this week. “There are logistical and convenience issues that we do understand and we don’t dispute. However, in order for us to get the international, national profile the city deserves, these big events are necessary.”
Instead of viewing what transpired on a United plane Sunday evening as a "one-off" incident, now United's shareholders are questioning the competence of management in handling crisis scenarios, Swan said, hence why the stock is starting to drop.
"This is an enormous deal for shareholders," he said.
The apology note issued by CEO Munoz on Monday and then his letter to employees that evening almost "restarted the crisis," Swan added, saying he watched mentions of United skyrocket on social media for a second and a third time.
