When the clock ticked to zero and the United States had beaten Canada, 12-10, in the 2022 World Lacrosse Men’s U21 Championship, defender Ryan Schriber (Wilton, Conn.), a player on Michigan, hugged Nick Myers (Kennebunk, Maine), the head coach at Ohio State.
Rivals in the college game, Schriber said playing and winning for one’s country trumps any other feelings. Sharing that experience was just another reason Schriber was so thankful for the opportunity.
Schriber heads back to Michigan for his senior season, the place where he received some great advice about making connections from one of his professors.
“You can only say, ‘Hi, I’m a student at the University of Michigan,’ for one more year,” he said. “The power is great, so making those connections now can only benefit you in the future.”
