Eric Gregg '02 was featured in a August 4 Philadelphia Inquirer article about the program he started to teach kids who live in Philadelphia lacrosse.
From the Inquirer:
The program was launched last year by Eric J. Gregg, a West Philadelphia native and son of the late Eric Gregg, a former umpire in Major League Baseball, and John Christmas, a former player for the Philadelphia Wings professional lacrosse team. Christmas now runs a youth lacrosse program in Southern California, officials said.
Gregg, 33, who coaches boys' lacrosse at St. Joseph's Preparatory School in North Philadelphia, said he was drawn to the sport at an early age, playing in a boys' lacrosse club in Lower Merion.
He later attended Episcopal Academy, playing on a team that won state championships in 1995 and 1996. After high school, Gregg played for Gettysburg College, graduating in 2002. Gregg also played for the now-defunct Philadelphia Barrage of Major League Lacrosse.
Gregg said he got the idea for the nonprofit LEAPS program while training students at St. Joseph's Preparatory School.
