ALBANY, N.Y. — Last Saturday saw former University at Albany legend Lyle Thompson along with his brothers Jeremy and Jerome “Hiana” Thompson at an “Albany Community Day” as part of their 4 The Future Foundation.
The afternoon began with a CityLax clinic at UAlbany’s Fallon Field for young lacrosse players in the area as part of the foundation’s mission to give back to the community, and foster the aspirations of young athletes. The clinic doubled by showing the participating youth the importance of an active and healthy lifestyle.
After the clinic, the three brothers signed autographs for fans ahead of the UAlbany men’s lacrosse game against NJIT.
After the Great Danes’ 13-7 win against the Highlanders, the Community Day concluded with the three Thompson brothers squaring off at MVP Arena in a National Lacrosse League battle between the Georgia Swarm and the Albany FireWolves.
Lyle, Jeremy and Miles Thompson, who was unable to make the trip to Albany because of an injury, all play for the Swarm, while Jeremy is a member of the FireWolves.
Lyle Thompson’s five points helped lead Georgia to a 15-6 win,.
