ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) – The local and national lacrosse community is coming together to honor a hero in the sport.

Nearly two weeks ago, Corning’s David Streeten passed away at just 38 in Texas. Streeten, an assistant coach at Allen High School and former D-I player at Binghamton University, impacted many in the sport and beyond. Now, those who knew him best are making sure his legacy of helping others lives on.

The David Streeten Scholarship Fund has been created with the goal of having an annual scholarship for one local player with ambitions of playing at the collegiate level. Already, over $20,000 dollars has been raised in memory of Streeten in just three days. The goal is to make it to $30,000 for the scholarship. The fund was made by both the Streeten and Tammaro families.
