The point people for this year's tournament are junior Bobby Hill, fourth-year Blake Riley and Brian Pomper, a senior wide receiver on the Virginia football team and a younger brother of Max Pomper.
Barrow was considered one of the top defensive midfielders in the country throughout his career and was a member of the Cavaliers' 2006 NCAA champion team. As a fourth-year player in 2008, he was a captain of a team that advanced to the semifinals of the NCAA tournament. During his senior season, he finished with a career-high 28 ground balls, scoring seven goals and adding three assists. After the season he was selected in the second round of the Major League Lacrosse draft by the Chicago Machine and appeared in five games during his rookie year.
Saturday's seven-on-seven tournament costs $250 per team with a roster limit of 10 people per squad. All participants will receive an orange and blue bracelet that reads "Remember Will Barrow," with the hotline number, 434-295-TALK, inscribed on the inside and a barbecue lunch.¿¿
