Testimonial

I am 13 years old, and I have been playing girl's basketball, in different leagues, for many years now. After breaking my nose more than once during games, I was thinking about the possibility of not having the sport I absolutely love, in my life. It really was a distressing time for me. Then I heard about this custom made "mask" being worn by the pros. I did some research on the internet and found the man that makes these masks; Jeremy Murray from the Michigan Hand and Sports Rehab center. My prayers were answered and I am back in the game!

The mask has become part of me; part of my uniform. During games, my face really takes a beating and with the mask on, I do not even blink. I no longer realize the pummeling my face takes because of the protection that the mask gives me.

The great part is that I did not have to fly to Michigan to have the mask made. I had my orthopedist, Dr. Douglas Avella, make a mold of my upper face and I shipped it off to Mr. Murray. That was it! Done! The mask came back a perfect fit, and I feel alive again! As corny as it sounds, having this protective face mask that fits "like a glove" has truly been a gift from above! Thanks Jeremy Murray!!

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Freshman defender Elizabeth Jacobson of the Harvard field hockey team was tabbed Ivy League Co-Rookie of the Week, the league announced Tuesday. The newcomer tallied the first assist and goal of her career over the last seven days. Jacobson shared the award with Brown's Alexis Miller, who also had a goal and an assist.

Jacobson started the week with an assist in Harvard's 4-1 win over Bryant Sept. 24. She sent a pass into the middle of the circle where Noel Painter redirected it into the goal to seal the Crimson's victory in the second half.

After contributing to Harvard's first Ivy League victory of the season, a 1-0 shutout of Brown Sept. 29, Jacobson scored her first career goal versus Quinnipiac Sept. 30. With Harvard trailing 1-0 in the first half, the Branchburg, N.J., native took a pass from Bridget McGillivray and sent it to the back of the cage to even the score. Jacobson wrapped her stick around the back side of a Quinnipiac defender on the right side of the cage, as McGillivray crossed the ball from the left to pull the Bobcat's goalie out of position and allow Jacobson to put the ball across the line.

The award is the first of Jacobson's career and Harvard's first Ivy League honor of the season. The last time a Crimson player had won a Rookie of the Week award was Oct. 25 of last season, when Noel Painter was chosen.
