On Tuesday June 16, 2015, we lost one of the greatest human beings in and out of Lacrosse.
Kyle Kirst, 47 and father of 5 sons, passed away of an apparent heart attack. His resume is vast as a coach, teacher and mentor. A former Rutgers lacrosse player, many know him as the very well-regarded defensive coach of the Summit HS lacrosse team. He has also presided over numerous clinics and camps that many of our sons have attended in the past.
Coach Kirst was a big man with a HUGE smile and gave his time to any player that would ask. If you Google him, you will see what I am talking about and why he is getting these props all over NJ.
NJ Riot Lacrosse has dedicated he rest of our summer season to his memory. If you tweet, please use hashtag: #weRKirst
Kyle’s dear friend and former teammate, Rich Burton, has set up a Kyle Kirst Memorial Fund. To donate click on this link:
