Growth Of Lacrosse: From The Legendary Jim Brown In 1957 To Kyle Harrison, Very Few Black Athletes Choose To Participate In Lacrosse


Jim Brown played for Syracuse in 1957.

Far smaller than football both in participation and popularity, lacrosse has struggled to find its way outside the suburbs and prep schools of the country, where the student-athlete population is mainly white.



“For whatever reason, you hear Jim Brown, and then you hear Kyle Harrison, and there’s a big, big, big gap in between those two players,” Woodson said. “So what we want to kind of do is take that gap and bridge it.”

Jim Brown was one of the greatest football players to ever grace the gridiron. But many say he was better at lacrosse.

Brown helped create possibilities for black athletes by playing football and lacrosse at Syracuse University in the mid-1950s, a time when racial integration in collegiate and professional sports was still very much developing. Since Brown, the most recognizable black lacrosse player has likely been current pro Kyle Harrison. The four-time Major League Lacrosse All-Star was the NCAA player of the year as a senior at Johns Hopkins in 2005, nearly 50 years after Brown’s playing days.

Two black lacrosse stars. Five decades apart. Very few like them in between.

Southern California High School Boys Lacrosse: JSerra Boys Lacrosse Hires Former Johns Hopkins All-American Kyle Harrison To Replace Departing Head Coach Mike Hutnick For 2012 Season

JSerra officials announced today that Kyle Harrison, a three-time All-American in college at John Hopkins University, will coach the boys lacrosse team in 2012.

He is a four-time Major League lacrosse all-star, school officials noted.
“JSerra is a dynamic school that welcomes and encourages vision, and provides just the environment needed to take on this new challenge,” he said in the release.
Harrison added he is looking to bring some assistant coaches from the East Coast. “They are a passionate about the sport, and about working with young men both on and off the field,” he said.
Harrison also said he will work with football coach Jim Hartigan to develop as many two-sport athletes as possible.

I am going to teach lacrosse in Arizona and start youth leagues.’ And that’s what I did.”
