Lacrosse Magazine on the Keiglers

A feature story in Lacrosse Magazine tells the story of Washington and Lee’s Keigler connection — father Tom ’77 is a National Lacrosse Hall of Famer; son Will ’10 enters his senior season tied for 16th on the all-time scoring list at W&L. See the story here. W&L lacrosse fans of all generations will enjoy reading about the father and son. As the story notes, former Washington and Lee lacrosse coach Jack Emmer called Tom “the best defenseman in the college game . . . one in a million” when he entered his senior season. Interestingly, son Will said that, growing up, he never really knew how good his father had been, telling Lacrosse Magazine: “He never would say that he was an All-American and played on a World Team. It was something I hadn’t seen before and it was pretty amazing.” Will, first-team All-ODAC and honorable mention All-America on the field, was also named to the CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine College Division Academic All-District III At-Large squad. Will and the Generals open their lacrosse season on the road at Birmingham-Southern on Feb. 23.
