Legends Of Lacrosse: Team Canada Lacrosse Goalie Chris Sanderson Dies Of Brain Tumor, Leaving Behind Legacy As “The Best International Goalie In History”
Chris Sanderson is gone but the memory of his gutsy goaltending for Canada at the 2010 world lacrosse championship while coping with brain cancer will endure.
Sanderson, a champion on and off the field, died Thursday. He was 38.
“What Chris Sanderson had to overcome physically and mentally to play one more time for his teammates and for Canada is something I will never forget,” said Dean French, the team’s executive director.
Sanderson not only helped Canada win silver in Manchester, England, he was named best goaltender for the third time in the four quadrennial tournaments in which he took part. He’d been a star on the 2006 team that upset the United States to win the world title for Canada for the first time in 28 years.
“Canada has been represented by some of the greatest players to ever play lacrosse and Chris Sanderson is the greatest national team player of them all,” said 2010 head coach David Huntley. “He has been the leader of our team since 1998 and we will miss him greatly.”
Sanderson is survived in New Jersey by his wife, Brogann, and daughters Stevie, 6, and Clementine, 4, by his parents Phil and Sue Sanderson of Orangeville, Ont., and by the extended Sanderson family that has been so vitally involved in Canada’s national summer sport for many years.

Legends Of Lacrosse: Casey Powell “Has Found Religion” Playing Box Lacrosse “At The Highest Levels” In The National Lacrosse League (NLL)
Powell has found religion playing in the box league. After completing his career at Syracuse, Powell said he struggled with the indoor game. It got to the point that between 2004 and 2007, Powell chose not play box lacrosse at all. He said he was burned out and physically beaten down. He didn’t have the success he envisioned, and the toughness of the game was taking a toll.
Now, Powell says he prefers the indoor box game over the field game, a philosophy that must cause a few shivers in town. When he runs into former Syracuse head coach Roy Simmons Jr., Powell said his old mentor “sort of shakes his head and says, ‘You’re still playing that game?’”
Casey Powell, who still wears jersey No. 22 as he did at Syracuse, is playing at the highest of levels. The National Lacrosse League named Powell its 2010 most valuable player. It marked the first time a U.S.-born player ever won the award. This season, Powell leads the NLL in points with 56 and is second in goals with 25.
The oldest member of the Powell brother dynasty will be back in Central New York today as a starter in the NLL All-Star game at Turning Stone Resort in Verona. Game time is 2 p.m. The contest will be televised by Versus.
Powell plays for the Boston Blazers, who are 6-3 at the All-Star break and a half-game behind the Toronto Rock in the East Division. He’s maintaining homes in Skaneateles and in Boca Raton. His parents live in Cazenovia. The Powell roots here remain deep. The same goes for playing lacrosse.
After the NLL season, Powell said he’s signed on to play outdoors this summer for the Rochester Rattlers of Major League Lacrosse. In between, he’s working as director of lacrosse programs at Saint Andrews School in Boca Raton.
Powell moved his family from California to South Florida six months ago and “loves it.” Saint Andrews has won eight straight boys state titles and produced numerous Ivy League players. In the last few years, Saint Andrews has sent Lee Coppersmith to Johns Hopkins, Jason Coppersmith to Colgate and Mike Shepardson to Notre Dame.
The Lacrosse Mystique: Syracuse Men’s Lacrosse Attacker JoJo Marasco (So., Yorktown Heights, NY) To Wear Legendary #22 Jersey In 2011
If there’s one person on this team that absolutely requires that confidence, it’s whoever dares wear #22. This year, that’s sophomore JoJo Marasco.
“After the season I went right into the coaches’ office and told them that I’ve been wanting to wear it for a couple years now and it would be an honor and I believed I could handle it,” the newest #22 said. While it may sound presumptive to stroll in and ask for the most famous number in lacrosse, that’s exactly what Coach Desko hoped for.
“We kind of like it if they hint to the fact they might want #22,” Desko said. “I think it’s great that they feel that they want the challenge of wearing #22. We’re
happy to give it to him. I think he’ll wear it well.”
Gary Gait didn’t don the famous digits until his sophomore year, but from 1988-2004 spanning Gary, Charlie, Casey, Ryan, and Mikey, the number earned All American honors for 17 straight seasons.
