There’s a familiar name involved with the Peterborough Minor Lacrosse Association these days, and it’s John Grant. The father of the current NLL (Colorado Mammoth) and MSL (Peterborough Lakers) scoring star is back in Peterborough as an executive vice president with the organization he helped start more than 30 years ago. He’s in charge of running the house league, where emphasis will be on fun and fundamentals for about 700 boys and girls aged 3 and up. “House league is a great thing and it’s where you build your base,” Grant told The Peterborough Examiner. “It’s where you start. We want kids to come out, learn, have fun and get a love for the game. We can walk them through everything and teach them all the skills. They don’t have to be all-stars but you never know where it could lead.”Chavez is an avid lacrosse player in Rochester and a journalist for the Democrat and Chronicle as well as a longtime Inside Lacrosse contributor.
