  1. I cannot believe none of the original FLC players are included in the nomination. The 1986 Team should be inducted, if it weren’t for us, FLC Lacrosse would not have gotten off the ground. Specifically, Scott Menoher, through his dedication and hard work, FLC Lacrosse was funded as a club by the student body.

    1. I put in a vote for Chris Tilden from late ’80’s team. Powerhouse midfielder. Frank Magden, another strong midfielder of late ’80’s to early 90’s. I will second the Scott Menoher nomination as well.

  2. John,

    That is a great point. This is exactly why we started this page, so we can give credit to the guys who laid the foundation for this program. Thanks for the nominations!

  3. How the F did Pat McGrath make this list before anyone else? I nominate J-Rob for his many years of service. I would also like to spearhead the “keep Stolley out” movement. Thanks for the support B-Do.

  4. I definitely think we should keep Stolley out. Berding should be in on sheer number of games played alone. What was it…. like 7 years?

  5. Bob is long overdue for recognition of his FLC lax contribution, seriously how many guys can talk the RMLC into giving them another year of eligibility just to get him to leave them alone?
