Unsung Heroes

YRL Unsung Hero Award


The Yeardley Reynolds Love ("YRL") Unsung Hero Award recognizes the accomplishments of a student-athlete who helps their team achieve success in ways that may not be measured in goals, saves or ground balls. This honor is meaningful because it places value on characteristics that are often undervalued in the competitively charged environment of college lacrosse. The YRL Unsung Hero Award recognizes the athlete who makes a significant contribution to the team while also bringing joy to teammates.

Hard-working, humble, honest, kind, and enthusiastic; this individual serves as an inspiration to her/his team both on the field and off. The award recipient should exhibit leadership as a positive role model and also be involved in community service.

The One Love Foundation will honor the lacrosse player that shares the qualities that Yeardley Love so humbly displayed. The recipient will also be awarded a sum of money from the One Love Foundation to be given to their favorite charity.
