Lane Tech honored heroic alum Fritz Pollard by renaming the field at Lane Stadium in his memory on Saturday. A 1912 graduate of Lane, Fritz went on to be the first Black quarterback in the NFL as well as the first Black coach. The event was organized by the Alumni Association, Lane Athletic Department and CPS Office of Sports Administration. Representatives from these organizations were present on the field during the ceremony, in addition to Pollard’s grandson Dr. Stephen Townes, Pollard Committee members, Cook County Commissioner Donna Miller and the alderman of the 47th ward, Matt Martin. Proclamations were read, alumni reconnected and all gathered collectively appreciated the accomplishments of Fritz Pollard. Editor-In-Chief Saskia McDonogh Mooney has more on the events of the day.

Arts and Entertainment


“With Sumeru releasing the anticipated and last element in the game – Dendro – things revolving around gameplay and team compositions will become more flexible as it welcomes new ideas. Rather than the new element of Dendro being pure confusion, it genuinely felt refreshing to play and fun to try out. I believe the developers will continue to exceed expectations as the journey in ‘Genshin Impact’ continues. Although the game has its own shortcomings, the changes and complex lore displayed throughout each update promise a bright future for the game,” News Editor Mariah Shaikh writes in her review of the mobile game “Genshin Impact Version 3.0: Sumeru and Rainforest.”
