On April 11th, a lacrosse scrimmage between Spencerport and Pittsford was scheduled. Until during warm-ups, one of the players from Pittsford, Jeff Milano-Johnson, a freshman on the varsity game, was struck behind his head under his helmet. He was immediately caught everybody's attention and was immediately treated with CPR and later was transfered to Strong Memorial Hospital. The next day, Johnson was kept alive by life support hoping to get better. Unfortunately, he lost his life, reported by hospital officials.
No matter who you represent or what team you are from, this can show how even some sports that are looked upon as not life-threatening, like lacrosse, can end in disaster. Anybody, athletes or not, can relate to losing someone in that quick moment just like that.
-"in memory of Jeff Milano-Johnson."
I knew Jeff through my best friend, in the couple times i met him, he always had a smile on his face, and was a very likeable person. He was fun-loving especially in the game of lacrosse. RIP Jeff
