Beacon How: Balls, gotta catch #039;em all

by Beacon Staff • February 18, 2009

Emerson students take pride in their ability to juggle many activities at once. Senior Emil Lamprecht takes this skill to new heights. Lamprecht literally juggles in the staircase that leads to the Student Campus Center in Piano Row. Balls, beanbags, rings and clubs are his specialty and he considers himself a local expert of the craft.

Lamprecht started his juggling career performing three-ball tricks accompanied by slapstick and stage comedy at age 14 and has since mastered a number of props and tricks from juggling nine objects to seven or eight rings at a time.
