Homer on Lacrosse:
“Lacrosse, and the coaches, players, officials, and friends that I have met in my lacrosse journey, are a major part of my life, and have shaped the values that by which I live. We get together and tell the same stories, and they get better as the years pass. Giving back to the game that has been such a big part of my life and that has given so much to me continues to be one of my greatest pleasures.”
Homer led by example. His words are so true about the sport that has given us all so much. Most importantly, the sport gave us Homer whose life we will celebrate on October 18th and every other day of the year.
Homer's love of life and love of others was second to none.
Homer Schwartz was an All-America lacrosse player, North-South All-Star captain, Johns Hopkins University graduate, team captain, Johns Hopkins Hall of Fame Member, USCLA post-collegiate all-star and leader of national championship club team, well-traveled player at Grand Masters level, dedicated career business executive, experienced game official and leader of officials’ association, president of the Potomac Chapter, and pacesetter for the development of lacrosse in the DC metro area.
