- How the Unpredictable Casey Powell Landed Among Legends
By msilva - Tuesday Sep 12, 2017
They all saw first what the entire lacrosse world was privileged to witness in the 30 years hence (and, if you’re lucky, can still catch a glimpse of on fields across the country at camps and clinics): Casey Powell, a first-ballot Hall of Famer, as great as they come.
“It’s really emotional for me. It’s such an honor,” the 41-year-old Powell said recently during a break from teaching one such youth camp in Florida, where he now lives. “It brings back so many memories. As soon as I found out about it, I couldn’t help but think about how I started, and my parents, coaches and my brothers — all the effort we put into the sport and how much fun we had with it.”
Powell won a national title as a freshman at Syracuse in 1995, is the only college player to win national midfielder and attackman of the year awards, in 1996 and 1998, respectively, and was a four-time All-American and All-NCAA tournament pick. He’s the only American-born player to be named National Lacrosse League and Major League Lacrosse MVP, the latter of which he won in 2015 at age 38. He captained Team USA’s field and indoor teams too. And, in the even bigger picture, he was the first of Larry and Sue’s three eldest sons to make the Powell name synonymous with the game.
He’s never far from a field, anyway. While an assistant coaching career at Jacksonville — under former Syracuse goalie John Galloway (who was in the Carrier Dome stands as a young fan for that 22-21 game) — ended after one season, Powell finds his way between the lines in myriad other ways.
Sometimes, it’s through the non-profit World Lacrosse Foundation he runs with his fiancée, Heather Chase O’Neill, a former Syracuse field hockey player, or creating his own games of Speed Lacrosse, small-sided affairs modeled after the games he and his brothers played in the backyard all those years ago. And other times, you can find Casey Powell in more traditional settings, like the annual Vail Shootout club tournament in Colorado. (His team, the appropriately named Magic Wands, won this summer.)
“It’s been an unbelievable 30 years around the game,” he said. “I’ve been heavily involved in all aspects of it, and it’s become my way of life. I’m extremely thankful for it, and to be honored by the National Hall of Fame is the ultimate honor. I’m very excited for the induction and to be amongst the best players to ever play.”
Doug Knight, Leslie Blankin Lane, Jim McDonald, Laurette Payette, Casey Powell, Jill Johnson Redfern, Brooks Sweet, Robyn Nye Wood and Don Zimmerman will be inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame in a black tie-optional ceremony Sept. 28 at The Grand Lodge in Hunt Valley, Md. The event is nearly sold out. For more information, visit uslacrosse.org/hof.
