Brayden Edgar Maniax Lacrosse Memorial Scholarship
Maniax Lacrosse will be awarding a $250.00 scholarship in remembrance of #7 Brayden Edgar.
Brayden Edgar was a genuine awesome kid. He was that player that every coach wanted on their team. He was the ultimate teammate and an awesome friend to so many. On August 24th 2016 Brayden was tragically killed in a ‘joy-ride’ car accident just two days after he tried out and made our freshman fall travel team. Brayden was days shy of starting his freshman year at Emerald Ridge High School in Puyallup.
The #7 Maniax jersey has been retired, to honor and remember Brayden Edgar. Each player wears the #7 on their front, right collar of their Maniax jersey.
The reason for Brayden’s death is difficult to process. His mom, Jaime, wrote a pledge titled “I Choose. . . “ to be read at Brayden’s memorial service and to share as a powerful message for kids to live by choice not excuses. Maniax Lacrosse/Total Sports has created a scholarship that will be awarded to a high school senior lacrosse player (boy or girl) who lives by choice.
to live by choice, not by chance; to make changes, not excuses; to be motivated, not manipulated; to be useful, not used; to excel, not to compete. I choose self-esteem, not self-pity. I choose to listen to my inner voice, not the random opinion of others.” --Jaime Edgar
