Curtis is a ten-year-old dual-sport athlete who plays lacrosse and football. Although he is only in the 5th grade, Curtis is a starting forward on the 7th/8th grade Blackhorse box lacrosse team.
Curtis “is an amazing athlete, great student and perennial over-achiever in both football and lacrosse,” Eric Bassett, coach of the Blackhorse box lacrosse team, said by email. “Davonte’s ability and lacrosse IQ are off the charts, he is 2-3 years younger than the rest of my team and is always a go-to player.”
This fall Curtis was faced with making weight for football and instead of quitting, he buckled down and lost over 20 pounds in four weeks making himself eligible. The weight loss and hard work also improved his lacrosse game by making him faster.
“Attitude, drive and heart, Devonte is the ultimate workhorse,” coach Eric Bassett said.
