The Big12 Fall Lacrosse Invitational, founded by Kevin Mayer, Director of Rock Lacrosse, was established to provide 2020, 2019 and 2018 teams with a highly competitive fall tournament where teams can compete at the highest level while receiving recruiting exposure to NCAA Division I, II, III programs.
Now in its second year, the Big12 Fall Lacrosse Invitational will again support the Brigance Brigade Foundation and work to bring much needed awareness to ALS, a devastating disease that affected Mayer’s family.
Mayer hopes to utilize the growth of lacrosse to develop a fundraising outlet for ALS. Mayer’s father, Frank “Lynn” Mayer, lost his battle with the disease in 2001. Frank, who had been a driving force in the family’s involvement in lacrosse, had spent the last 5 years of his life in a wheelchair and greatly valued his support network which allowed him to live with the disease in a dignified manner.
