David Higbee: Lacrosse as a Community Bridge

Few people in life fall into their dream jobs by happenstance, but one such person is David Higbee, executive director of Bridge Lacrosse, a youth sports program based in South and West Dallas. Lacrosse is often thought of as a sport for the privileged, due to initial cost to play and lack of access in underserved communities, but Bridge has sought to remove those barriers and develop not only sports skills on the field but also develop the whole child with supplemental academic and after-school programs.
