Here’s a great Syracuse.com podcast with coach Desko.

That topic is discussed on Episode 61 of the Syracuse Sports Podcast along with a conversation with Syracuse lacrosse head coach John Desko.

A standout student-athlete and team captain in football, wrestling, and lacrosse at high school powerhouse The Landon School in Bethesda, Maryland, Mitchell had suddenly found himself sidelined with a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). At the beginning of his senior year. During the first football game of the season.

What’s Up, New PhilaJersey?

The Garden State thanks you: Recycled Christmas trees will fill sand dunes at New Jersey state park.

The Christmas spirit carried on in New Jersey well after the holidays. More than 2,000 Christmas trees were donated to a state park to help restore sand dunes there — a much larger haul than the 200 trees that were called for.
