The revamped Rochester Knighthawks will debut their new team on Saturday, and the team this year is full of new, young guys, including Joel White and Stephen Keogh.
"We're both rookies, so we're both excited for our first year of professional lacrosse," says Keogh. "We've got a lot of young guys on offense, so we're fast and we hope to put a lot of goals in the net."
Unlike a lot of the guys on the team, Stephen and Joel go way back, and now live locally, so playing in Rochester is special.
"We were fortunate enough to go to Syracuse together. So it was up I-81 and now over I-90," explains White. He's from Cortland, so he isn't far from home. "My family is excited. It's nice to be able to have your family come to the games."
Not only will family members be there, so will the United States Marine Corps. They'll be collecting toys for the "Toys for Tots" program.
Sgt. Sean Lindsay, from the USMC, says, " We go out and we collect toys throughout Rochester. We have drop boxes at different locations. The community pretty much gives all the toys."
Bring a new, unwrapped toy to the game on Saturday, and help a child this holiday season.
And Sgt. Lindsay has a goal: "I hope to be able to fill my truck, and I challenge Rochester to fill my truck."
