Canisius lacrosse player Jackson Webster (pictured below, left) had the surprise of a lifetime this weekend when he ran into actor and comedian Adam Sandler at the college’s athletic training room. Sandler was in town for his “Adam Sandler Live” event, which is currently touring the country. He visited the KAC to get a quick workout in before the show.

All clothing is free of charge and is a great way to add new clothes to your wardrobe without supporting fast fashion brands.
