Following are statements from Loyola Assistant Vice President/Director of Athletics Jim Paquette and Head Men’s Lacrosse Coach Charley Toomey.

Jim Paquette:

“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Adam. On behalf of our administration, coaches and student-athletes, I would like to extend my condolences to Adam’s parents, brothers, friends and relatives. We realize this is a difficult time for all who knew Adam, and Loyola is committed to providing compassionate spiritual and emotional support for members of our community.”

Charley Toomey:

“As a coach and father, my heart goes out to Adam’s family and friends, as we are deeply saddened to learn of his passing. I don’t know that there are words adequate to describe the feelings of loss and grief wefeel in the Loyola Lacrosse family. We will continue to look to each other for strength as we keep Adam’s family in our prayers.”

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
