I wanted to write to you in regards to a recent article that was posted in the newspaper. The article is titled “Essex men’s lax rebounding after rare losing season” (4/4/19). It is an amazing coincidence that the players pictured (Jesse Hightower and Mitchell Foard) were published together. They have been friends for almost 15 years and have played football and lacrosse together since they were 5 years old. These two boys have been inseparable since they met many years ago. They are a powerhouse together and they have been working together to improve their skills and potential for so many years. All their hard work has paid off! The article was an amazing coincidence that I had to share with you! Jesse is my brother and Mitchell has been my “adopted” brother since day one.
