Welles CrowtherBruins to Honor 9/11 Hero
Welles Crowther Tribute at Woodchuck


MARLBORO, MA-This Sunday, on the 10 year anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, the Junior Bruins will honor the memory of one of the many heroes from that day. Welles Crowther, a classmate and friend of Bruinsí coaches Andy Powers and Chris Masters at Boston College, died that day as he was helping save those who were trapped in the South Tower. Welles, now known as the Man in the Red Bandana, played lacrosse at Boston College (class of í99) and was the captain of his high school hockey team (Nyack HS). On September 11, 2001 he showed courage and compassion beyond belief in saving the lives of a dozen people in the South Tower. Here are two links that give you a better idea of the type of man Welles was and the courage he showed ten years ago.
