Back in 2014, the Amity Boys Lacrosse Team was smoking hot, with great names like Choiniere, Uscilla, Burns, Sember, Coassin, King, Cala, Sullivan, Pignataro, DiMauro and Robinson.
Many of these fine athletes are now playing Lacrosse in colleges and universities across the USA.
Sadly, we were informed today that Orange native Damon Robinson (#17), who also wrestled at Amity, is suffering severe brain damage in a Neurological Intensive Care Unit after being assaulted by a group of people over the weekend. (He lives in Orlando, Fla)
Damon has been in and out of consciousness and every day is a struggle as he fights through this challenge.
Former classmate, Hannah Babbitz started a Gofundme page to help the Robinson family with the cost of his hospital care.
“It is times like these we call upon friends for help and support and the Robinson family greatly appreciates both. Thank you for your thoughts, prayers, and contributions to the family during this difficult time,” Babbitz wrote on the page.
