For the past decade, Winston Churchill High School in Potomac has had a remarkable boys lacrosse program filled with many college commits and regional titles. This year was no different.

This past year, Churchill’s boys lacrosse program saw five of its seniors commit to playing in college: Brady Altobello, Ryan Leonard, Jack Taylor, Reed Moshyedi, and Jimmy Rubino.

According to head coach Jeff Fritz, they are the most recruits Churchill has had in one season, as no other public Montgomery County school has ever had more than two Division I recruits in a single year.

“These five were great gentlemen both on and off the field and I have no doubt in my mind that they will be successful in life,” Fritz said. “They were great leaders both on and off the field, in the classroom, and in the community!”

These T-shirts could fit me.”

Each of the 258 T-shirts hanging along a fence at the high school depicts one young life that had been cut down so far this year due to gun violence in schools throughout the country.

Williams, a 17-year-old high-school senior, said, “It’s important to demonstrate a point like this. It’s definitely attracting attention.”

The T-shirt exhibit has been making the rounds at the many County high schools and already visited Winston Churchill High School in Potomac and Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School.
