Hero’s is dedicated to developing top lacrosse players and providing personalized guidance with the collegiate recruitment process.
HTLC is an outgrowth of Hero’s of Howard County, an organization founded by PJ Kesmodel. Hero’s of Howard County runs a summer lacrosse league for high school aged girls. During the late 1990’s, Hero’s sponsored one or more girls’ Hero’s All-Star teams that played in summer lacrosse tournaments. With the recent explosion in growth of women’s lacrosse, the number of tournaments began to increase, as did their importance in the process of college recruitment. In December of 2001, a group of interested volunteers met with the officers of Hero’s of Howard County and decided to use HTLC as the organization to select and sponsor the Hero’s All-Stars tournament teams. Although HTLC is a separate organization, we retain a close connection with Hero’s of Howard County, as evidenced by PJ’s emeritus status on our board. HTLC is organized as a not-for-profit corporation incorporated in the state of Maryland.
