Editor's note: This story appeared in the March issue of New England Lacrosse Journal. On March 12, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Northeast-10 Conference made the decision to suspend spring sports until at least April 13, and later cancelled them.
In a way, Connor Baughan was meant to play lacrosse.
The Bentley University junior grew up in a competitive household alongside his two brothers, Christopher and Charlie. Their father, Mark, played football at Cornell University and coached the three Baughan boys in football and lacrosse. On top of that, their grandfather, Maxie, was a nine-time NFL Pro Bowl linebacker.
Couple the physical genes with three energetic boys, and the result was constant chaos at their home in Foxboro, Mass.
