“Wednesday’s Child” Filmed With University Of Denver’s Men’s Lacrosse Staff


“Wednesday’s Child” is a program, sponsored by CBS Channel 4 that allows young wednesdaychilddenverlacrossepeople, who are registered with the “Adoption Exchange” (a non-profit agency), an opportunity to express themselves to a potential adoptive family, while performing an act which they find true to their heart.

The University of Denver men’s lacrosse coaching staff, along with Colorado Mammoth players Nenad Gajic and Andrew Porter, teamed up with Denver’s CBS4 for this week’s taping of Wednesday’s Child. Filming took place last Wednesday at the Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium and aired this afternoon, featuring 11-year old Dillon, an aspiring lacrosse athlete.

Upon arriving to the DU campus, Dillon was greeted by Denver head coach Jamie Munro, associate head coach Jon Torpey, assistant coach Matt Brown and the president of the Denver Lacrosse Club, Rob Gormley. After brief introductions, Dillon was taken onto the field and shown lacrosse techniques, such as passing while traveling up and down the field and shooting on goal, by Gajic and Porter.

After completing his lesson, Dillon was presented with the necessary lacrosse gear needed to play from Phil McCarthy of Break Away Sports.

Once taping was completed, the Denver coaching staff took Dillon on a tour of the men’s lacrosse locker room and training facilities.
