Behind the Lens: One for All, All for One

The Nyack Boys Varsity Lacrosse team huddle up in front of Welles Crowther's name on the memorial.

When the Nyack Boys Varsity Lacrosse team visited the 9/11 Memorial & Museum to learn more about Welles Crowther, a Nyack alum and lacrosse player who became known as the “Man in the Red Bandana" for his bravery on 9/11, they concluded their visit with a team cheer.

The heroism of Welles Crowther remains an inspiration to the team who wear his No. 19 on their back and incorporated the bandana design on their jerseys. After a tour of the Museum and quiet reflection at the Memorial, the Nyack students shared this moment of unity with Welles's mother, Alison Crowther, before heading home.
