Former New York Saints player John Salerno is among the missing of the September 11th World Trade Center Attack. Salerno played one season in the League. He was a member of the 1993 New York Saints team that made the playoffs. Before playing as a professional, Salerno played for Nassau Community College, St. Johns University, and the North Hempstead L.C.
Salerno worked for Cantor Fitzgerald Securities who had offices on several floors of the North Tower and was one of the hardest hit firms. Originally from Port Washington, New York, Salerno is survived by his wife, who is pregnant. A memorial service was held for Salerno recently.
"The World Trade Center attack has touched us all," said Commissioner Jim Jennings, "The entire League sends its heartfelt sympathy to the Salerno family."
Philadelphia Wings Co-Owner Russ Cline was President and Co-Owner of the League when Salerno played in 1993. "This tragedy has affected all areas of the sports world, including lacrosse. John will be missed greatly. The lacrosse world also lost several coaches and players from the college and high school levels. Our hearts go out to all of their families."
