Jim Brown Lacrosse



The Style Known as Jim Brown Lacrosse


This style is a tribute to the man whom many have argued is the best lacrosse player to have ever graced the game.

That man is, of course... Jim Brown.

Jim Brown played lacrosse at Syracuse University, and graduated in 1983.

He started his lax career at a high school in New York called Manhasset High School. During his high school playing days, he earned 3 All-Star honors for midfield.

At Syracuse, Jim Brown lettered in four sports including lacrosse and football.

Jim went on to achieve many awards while at college, including: Athlete of the Year in 1956-57, Team All-American Selection in 1956, and earned First Team Honors in 1957.

One of his most memorable lacrosse moments happened when he scored 5 goals, in one half, during the 1957 Collegiate North/South All-Star game.

He went on to play in the National Football League for the Cleveland Browns.

He was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971, and into the Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 1983.

Jim Brown loved lacrosse, and is often quoted as having said, "I'd rather play lacrosse six days a week and football on the seventh."

Whether you know him for playing football or lacrosse, there is no question that Jim Brown was one incredible athlete.

Jim Brown helped evolve the sport, and put lacrosse into the main-stream in the 1950's.
