Kids & deputies stick up for lacrosse

Thanks to L.A. County Sheriff’s deputies in Compton, local kids are getting a taste of an unusual after-school sport: lacrosse. In recent years, the sport has been moving away from its East Coast prep school roots and into more urban areas. Offering exercise, camaraderie and a taste of playground novelty, these students and deputies say lacrosse just might be a game-changer—on and off the field. Watch a recent practice in this video.
