Michigan lacrosse signs 14-year-old with intractable epilepsy

Tuesday November 25th, 2014

The Michigan lacrosse team announced Monday it has signed Brendan Randolph to a national letter of intent as a member of the Class of 2023. 

Randolph was born with a blood clot in his brain which caused permanent damage. As a result, he suffers from intractable epilepsy and developmental delays. Intractable epilepsy is a condition which does not respond to treatment, and Randolph has between 35 and 40 seizures per month.

Randolph was given a practice pinnie, helmet, stick and cleats at his introductory press conference. 

The event was organized by Team IMPACT, a Boston-based nonprofit which connects children with serious illnesses to local college teams. Since it launched in 2011, Team IMPACT has paired over 570 children with teams from 270 schools.
