Tribute to Michael Hughes

Tribute to Michael Hughes

By Jennifer Buckley

The spring lacrosse season may just be getting underway in Bedford, but one thing is already certain – the spirit and memory of Mike Hughes, a beloved pioneer of Bedford youth lacrosse, devoted coach, father and husband, has a strong presence on the field and beyond.

Many remember, most of all his wife Diane, the beautiful spring day last year, when Mike was so proud to join his oldest son Max, then senior and BHS lacrosse player, at the senior night ceremony. He stood on the field with his family as they enjoyed the culmination of Max’s BHS lacrosse career and the recognition of Mike’s longtime involvement in the Bedford Youth Lacrosse League (BYLL).
