Here’s a nice segment from WETM: Loyola’s Aidan Olmstead reflects on NCAA lacrosse cancellation.
Aidan Olmstead continues to shine, but that shine will have to wait another season. Olmstead, a junior attacker on the Loyola (Md.) men’s lacrosse team, leads the Greyhounds in points this year with 22 (11 goals, 11 assists). The 14th ranked team in the country, unfortunately, received the same fate as all NCAA programs with the coronavirus outbreak.

The Bucs’ four-decade search for a franchise quarterback has led them to Brady, the greatest of all time. Brady chose to play for Bruce Arians over Belichick and pass to Mike Evans and Chris Godwin over Julian Edelman. And, yes, he chose the Glazer family over Kraft.
