Adam was a gifted athlete who excelled in each sport he played, but his true passion from an early age was lacrosse. His natural talents were nurtured and developed in his own backyard, practicing with his father, brothers or by himself, shooting until the sun went down. Adam continued to develop on the fields of Huntington, St. Anthony’s and Loyola University. He was happy to be a lacrosse player and part of the game’s brotherhood.
Since Adam’s death, the Pomper family has been overwhelmed by the kindness of so many people who have held them up as they gradually regain their footing. The lacrosse community’s unwavering support, both far and wide, has been enormous and a great source of strength.
To honor Adam’s love of the game and to acknowledge the lacrosse community’s tight bond – a bond that goes beyond the game – we are hosting the 1st Annual St. Anthony’s Adam Pomper Memorial Alumni Lacrosse Game. This is to be the first ever St. Anthony’s alumni lacrosse game.
The game will be played by St. Anthony lacrosse alumni, so many of the top college programs will be represented. All friends of Adam and lacrosse fans alike are welcome and encouraged to come and show their support.
Prior to the game, there will be a lacrosse demonstration in the field house given by UVA All-American and Tewaarton Trophy winner, Steele Stanwick, among other noteworthy players. Q & A and autograph session to follow. It will be a fun-filled day of lacrosse for the whole family.
We hope that young lacrosse fans will come and learn from these amazing players. It is also our hope that the event will provide an opportunity for lacrosse players, young and old, to meet, reconnect and network.
All proceeds from the lacrosse event to benefit the St. Anthony’s Adam Pomper Memorial Scholarship Fund, which will award a qualified student in need a fully funded four year St. Anthony’s education
