2021 Harvey Potter and Ethan Song Coaches Winners

 

As the 2021 spring lacrosse season comes to an end, the Guilford Youth Lacrosse Association celebrates its athletes through two important award programs:

The first program provides for the Harvey L. Potter Memorial Scholarship Award.  Harvey Potter, a longtime Guilford resident, dedicated much of his life to coaching, refereeing, and promoting the sport of lacrosse.  He was an inspiration to thousands of young men and women, both on the athletic field and in the classroom. Harvey was a triple threat athlete at Williams College, excelling in football, wrestling, and lacrosse.  His lacrosse résumé includes head coaching (and teaching) positions at Williams College, Colgate University, and Skidmore College, as well as founding the lacrosse program at Suffield Academy here in Connecticut.

Each year, Guilford Youth Lacrosse presents the Harvey L. Potter Memorial Scholarship Award to one 7th grade player from both the girls and boys programs who best embodies the ideals of sportsmanship and teamwork, as well as a commitment to excellence both on and off the field.  Due to our lacrosse season having been cancelled last year, we will also select one 8th grade player from each program to receive the Potter Award this year.  The names of the recipients shall be inscribed on the Harvey Potter memorial plaque, which is displayed on the first floor of the Nathanael Greene Community Center, and each of this year’s four recipients will receive a replica plaque, together with a check for $500.00 to be applied toward the cost of off-season lacrosse training.

I am excited and honored to announce this year’s recipients.  Please join me in congratulating the 2021 Harvey Potter Award winners, named below:

CLASS OF 2025

  • Cambelle Jacobson
  • Jonah Labbadia-Colón

CLASS OF 2026

  • Ciara Davenport 
  • Brody Root

The second award program provides for the Ethan Song Coaches Award. This award honors the personal qualities that the late Ethan Song brought to all his lacrosse endeavors.  The award is given annually to a 7th Grade player, from both the girls and boys programs, who best demonstrates what a coach wants to see in a player. Due to our lacrosse season having been cancelled last year, we will also award two 8th grade players, one from each program this year.  The qualities that coaches use in their selection of the winners of this award include consideration of the players who always put their team above themselves, make others around them better, and have a fun-loving attitude, qualities that, all taken together, serve to honor the game of lacrosse.  Each recipient of the Ethan Song Coaches Award will receive a certificate, together with a check for $250.00 to be applied toward the cost of off-season lacrosse training. 

I am thrilled and honored to announce this year’s recipients.  Please join me in congratulating the 2021 Ethan Song Coaches Award winners, named below:

CLASS OF 2025

  • Nola Lai
  • Logan Shay

CLASS OF 2026

  • Adelyn Young
  • Aidan Connelly
