What Are We Thankful For This Year?
Glad You Asked!
Mitch Belisle, VP of Marketing: I am thankful for the amazing support of our friends and family, especially as we look towards our January due date for our addition to the Belisle family. I am also thankful that the addition is going to be a boy!
Chris Benza, Sales Manager: I am thankful for my friends, family and the technology that allows me to stay in communication with everyone all over the globe! I am also thankful for the $1 slice pizza shop right outside of my apartment.
Ryan Boyle, CEO: I am incredibly appreciative of the love and the many forms it takes – humor, honesty, unconditional support, criticism – that I get from my family and friends. Also Gregg Popovich. More specifically the fact that Pop empowered Tim Duncan to be the “Coach of Whatever He Wants To Be” instead of retiring alongside his PIC.
Chris Jurgens, Operations Analyst: I am thankful for many things this year. Chief among them being the health of my family, as well as the continued opportunity to impact lives through the sport of lacrosse. (Also headphones on the subway)
Robert Lindsey, Chairmain: I’m thankful to have meaningful work and relationships that inspire a purposeful life and sense of community.
Dave Madeira, Director of Events: I am thankful for the great weather we had at our Veterans Day Tournament earlier this month. Old Man Winter stayed away and allowed Mother Nature to give us a beautiful day for lacrosse.
Bill McGlone, Account Manager: I am grateful for so many things this year and I try to remind myself every day. First, I am grateful for my loving family and all my altruistic friends that were so supportive to me during some serious and scary health issues I experienced last year. So, no surprise that I have immense gratitude for my health which is amazing right now. I love being able to positively influence young men and helping them on their journeys through the lacrosse landscape. Lastly, I am grateful for the new career I am embarking on to work with some great people that I respect tremendously, and have the opportunity to provide educational services in a sport I love with Trilogy Lacrosse.
Nikki Orlowski, Marketing Manager: I’m thankful for my parents for their unwavering support and for my younger brother who is my best friend.
Tom Phillips, Controller: This holiday season, I’m thankful for the continued health and happiness of my family, the opportunities that I’ve had to further myself professionally, and that the Yankees will finally duck under the luxury tax threshold in 2017 (knock on wood).
Mike Terry, Club Program Manager: Thanksgiving was never a very important holiday to me until about 4 years ago when I tore my Achilles on Thanksgiving Eve. I had to spend my Thanksgiving in the hospital post-surgery. Ever since then, Thanksgiving has meant so much more to me. I am thankful for the few people that I call friends, my Mom and Dad who have molded me into the person I am today. My fiancée Alex, who has been there for me through thick and thin, all of the ups and downs and the good and bad. Last but not definitely not least, our son Jaxon, who has been the biggest blessing to us and we are so proud to be his parents.
Amanda Trendell, Girls Programs Manager: I am grateful for the new chapter of my life that I recently began at Trilogy Lacrosse as the Girls Programs Manager. Every day I get to do what I love with the support of amazing people!
Jimmy Vlahakis, President: I am thankful for the ability to enjoy life with a great family that is 1 little man large this Holiday season. I am also thankful that I get to spend my working days in the sport that I grew up loving and that shaped so much of my life.
