It says a lot when a young man is named captain of his lacrosse team. It says he’s a leader, he sets an example, and he goes about it all the right way. So what then, does it say when a young man is named captain of his college lacrosse team all 4 seasons? Whatever words you come up with, apply them to Cameron Mann because that’s where he was during his 4 seasons at Jacksonville University. A first-team All-MAAC midfielder for 3 straight seasons, Mann is no stranger to the world of box lacrosse, either, and the right-hander out of Hamilton is hoping the National Lacrosse League is his next stop after a Junior A career at Burlington and 3 Major Series seasons under his belt with Kitchener-Waterloo. Field, box at top levels, and a leader of teammates? What more could he possibly want? A shot at the National Lacrosse League and hearing his name called at the Sept. 16 draft.
