Weekend Warriors, First Ever Book About Pro Lacrosse Players, Officially Launches

    Ideal Book for Young Lacrosse Players and Fans Now on Sale

    WASHINGTON, March 19 /CNW/ -- New Chapter Press
(http://www.newchapterpressonline.com ) today announced the launch of Weekend
Warriors, The Men of Professional Lacrosse, the first-ever book about
professional lacrosse players. Written by Jack McDermott of Tallahassee, Fla.,
Warriors is a compilation of short life stories of 15 pro players who star in
the indoor National Lacrosse League and the outdoor league, Major League
    "Weekend Warriors is an ideal book for the massive growing numbers of
young people across North America now playing lacrosse in camps and in
school," said New Chapter Press Publisher Ewing Walker. "It's a fun and
fascinating read for those who want to learn more about the heroes of North
America's oldest and fastest-growing sport."
    "There's a charm with professional lacrosse in that the stars on the
field are also heroes and role models off the field as school teachers,
firemen, businessmen and community leaders," said McDermott. "Lacrosse players
are ordinary people with ordinary jobs who just happen to have extra-ordinary
abilities as lacrosse players."

after high speed car chases, protect nuclear facilities from terrorists and
