Morgan State University junior Kobie Johnson thought his dream of playing collegiate lacrosse had ended when he initially made the decision to attend a historically Black university. However, Johnson, an avid lacrosse player from Prince George’s County, Maryland, was surprised to learn Morgan had a club team. Johnson, now team captain, remembers a time when Morgan State’s program struggled to field five consistent players for practice; it now has approximately 30. The Bears participate in the Next Collegiate League (NCL), a club lacrosse league that includes seven historically Black colleges and universities.
