“That stick carries respect, unity, equity, purpose, and love. And when you hear “more than a game” Zeddy is showing you what that means. And I hope one day everyone can understand that this is the medicine game in its purest form.” -Lyle Thompson

“I hope people understand why Zed Is holding his stick thru the ceremony. He could care less about that trophy, it was never about that. He understands the spiritual dimension of lacrosse. He personifies his stick,it treated him good today. And he appreciates/loves it for that.” -Lyle Thompson
