During the fall, the Ohio State men’s lacrosse program welcomed JJ Snider into the family, and the fourth grader has been on the sidelines both at games and practice for the Buckeyes this season. The team adopted JJ through the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation, a non-profit, charitable organization formed in 2005 that improves the quality of life for children with pediatric brain tumors and their families. JJ and his family – his parents Jodi and Mike, sisters Mary and Joanna and brothers Rudy and Michael – have spent time with the team throughout the year.
