Travis Solomon Award

The Travis Solomon Award

Travis Solomon

Travis was a long-time participant of this tournament and this 
weekend became very special to him.  It was not just about playing lacrosse but  reuniting with  rarely seen friends, teammates  and reminiscing of games played decades or minutes ago.  Memories of Travis abound from Syracuse’s first National Championship in 1983 to playing with the Iroquois Nationals in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics  to winning the President’s Cup in 1997 as Canada’s best Senior B team to finishing with the 2006 Iroquois Nationals in London, Ontario. His career was long and accomplished. Travis’ passion for the game was quite evident – a loud, commanding voice was an ever present boon to encourage and direct his defense.  His reverence for the sport was unparalleled even with his quiet off field demeanor. Travis succumbed to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s disease, in 2010.  The resolve and determination  he showed  on the lacrosse field was ever present as he battled the progression of this disease.  This award is given to an individual who not only plays the game we all love but also appreciates its origins. To play the game hard, fair and with respect is to honor this game as 
did Travis.
