HBCU Voice Episode 11: Talking with the Hampton Lacrosse head coach

It started with a phone call from Michael Crawford’s mother to Lloyd Carter. She said her son, a Hampton student, had recently died, and one of his goals was to start a lacrosse team at his school. So she wanted to honor his legacy.

Carter asked her “Do you believe in God.” Mrs. Crawford said “yes.” And Carter told her she had contacted the right person.

Hampton Lacrosse recently became the first ever Division-I Historically Black College University to field a varsity lacrosse program. We talked to Carter about his story and the future for lacrosse in HBCU sports.
