Former TYL player Avery Collins recognized with national award from US Lacrosse
Recognized for her hard work in the classroom and as a volunteer on the lacrosse field, Trumbull resident Avery Collins was awarded the "All for One" award from US Lacrosse. Collins, a junior at Trumbull High School, was presented with the prestigious honor during the US Lacrosse National Convention, held January 10-12, 2014, in Philadelphia, PA.
The "All for One" award is presented annually to a young adult (boy or girl) who has unselfishly volunteered his or her time and talent to help grow and build lacrosse awareness, and who thoroughly embodies the mission and vision of US Lacrosse. The recipient is typically an individual who has volunteered time, while balancing a busy schedule, to mentor others and give back to the sport. US Lacrosse is the national governing body for youth, high school and intercollegiate lacrosse.
"It's such an honor to be recognized for simply doing something that I love,” Collins said when she learned she had won the award. “Lacrosse will always be a part of my life and it is a joy to share what I know with the next generation of awesome lacrosse players. I want to thank Coaches Ted Chase, Peter Tinnesz, and Mike Spinner for giving me the opportunity to be so involved at the youth level."
Spinner, former Trumbull High School girls lacrosse coach and current Pace University Head Women's Lacrosse, said, "There are hundreds of young women in Trumbull who were not only introduced to the great game of lacrosse, but learned to love the game because of Avery's passion and dedication to Trumbull Youth Lacrosse (TYL). The fact that Avery is a student of the highest caliber, an outstanding lacrosse player, and such an amazing kid has made her a great role model for the young women in our program and our community as a whole. I am very proud of Avery for being recognized nationally for her commitment to the young lacrosse players in our town."
Collins, a passionate student-athlete who plays both varsity lacrosse and field hockey at Trumbull High, boasts a 4.33 GPA while taking AP and honors coursework. In addition to her efforts in the classroom, Collins has served as a volunteer coach for Trumbull Youth Lacrosse (TYL) with multiple age groups over the last three years. She has also served as a student-assistant coach for the girls’ under-13 team and the head coach of the U-7 Little Eagles girls program.
In his recommendation letter to US Lacrosse, Ted Chase, TYL president and director of the girls’ program noted, “For the past two years, I have found Avery to be incredibly selfless with her time, extremely dedicated to the sport, a positive role model and mentor to our young players, a strong leader amongst her peers, and an excellent and committed student.”
