Baltimore County Snapshots

April 05, 2006

Matt Higgins, Franklin



STATS -- The senior attackman led his team to season-opening routs of Baltimore County rival Eastern Tech and Harford County power North Harford by a combined score of 29-9. Higgins contributed nine goals and one assist in the two games.

SIDELINES -- Higgins is from a lacrosse family. Sisters Megan and Jenny play at the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins, respectively, and two younger brothers play the sport as well. A three-year varsity player, Higgins runs with Franklin's attack alongside senior Tommy Montanye. The fact that Higgins can walk, let alone run, is remarkable following a cycling accident last fall that resulted in multiple ligament tears and the insertion of steel rods to support bone damage in each leg.
