A few months back we had a chance to photograph Johns Hopkins Blue Jays and Team USA U-19 defenseman Patrick Foley for a special feature on the Team USA U-19 stars for Lacrosse Magazine. In an age of sport specialization here in the US, Foley is a late-bloomer picking up a lacrosse stick for the first time as a freshman in high school. He’s also not your prototypical defender standing in at just 6 feet, 175lbs; small for your top-level long-sticks. Foley shined this year at Hopkins, won a Gold Medal with Team USA and recently was named to the All-World Team for his performance at the U19 World Championships in Coquitlam, British Columbia.
It was fun to photograph this smart, confident, blue-collar kid. Here’s a few of my favorites from the shoot.
