Thumbs Up Game


Each year in the fall, FCA Lacrosse has the opportunity to help sponsor the annual “Thumbs Up” game between Ohio State and North Carolina in Baltimore, Maryland.  This game is played to honor the memory of Michael R Breschi. Michael Breschi, the son of UNC Head Lacrosse Coach Joe Breschi, tragically lost his life in 2004, while Breschi was the head coach of the Ohio State lacrosse team. Over the past several years, Breschi and current OSU head coach Nick Myers have come together each fall to host a youth clinic in Baltimore followed by the special game, highlighted at the beginning where both teams join together and give the “Thumbs Up”  to help keep Michaels memory alive. The Michael R. Breschi Scholarship is also awarded each fall to a member of the Ohio State Lacrosse team, who “exemplifies the spirit of Michael.”
