"Throughout my career, I have so often been amazed by the effort, sacrifice, and ability to overachieve by my players, most recently at Princeton and Denver," Tierney, 62, said. "This honor, however, is above-and-beyond and can only be described as overwhelming and humbling. In my 34 years of coaching college lacrosse, Ed Calkins ranks at the very top of the type of young men with whom I have been blessed. He has led this charge and so many others have jumped on board. Yes, the field will bear my name, but the truth of the matter is that 22 years at Princeton has afforded me the opportunity to meet so many supportive alums, friends and family members who have reached out to make this vision become a reality. From my standpoint, the field will be dedicated to the men who have coached by my side, players who suited up and blessed me with their dedication on my high school teams, RIT, Hopkins, and, of course, Princeton and Denver. No words can suitably thank enough, all who participated in this effort."
