Lacrosse

The early history of the Jesuits in North America is intertwined with the development of lacrosse. Originated by native North Americans, in 1636 the Jesuit missionary Jean de Brebeuf, S.J. adapted lacrosse for French pioneers in Canada. A few centuries later in the spring of 2012, after several years as a club team, Jesuit High School lacrosse began FHSAA play as a Varsity sport.

Charlie Cummins enters his fourth year as head coach in 2023. In 2022, the Tigers claimed their first ever Region Championship and their fourth consecutive District Championship, making it seven District titles in 10 seasons of FHSAA play. Jesuit defeated Community School of Naples 9-6 in the 2022 Region Final, advancing to the State Semifinal where they fell to eventual champion Saint Andrew's. Defenseman Antonin Hoppman-Salario '22 earned 1A All-State Team honors. The Tigers were also led by Dylan Causey '22 (62% save percentage and 14 wins), Lleyton Hall '24 (35 goals and 27 assists), Colin Kruger '23 (32 goals and 23 assists), Chase Minacci '22 (28 goals and 17 assists), and SK Moore '23 (84% of faceoffs won).

Each year, several Tigers sign to play in college, including the school's first Division I lacrosse signee, Stephano Mastro '15 (Mt. St. Mary's), national recruit Brad Baker '17 (Holy Cross), Jake Lemon '18 (Canisius College), Seth Cashen '18 (Bellarmine University), and Hoppman-Salario (Haverford College). The top returning Tigers in 2023 include Kruger, Nate Martino '24, Moore, Gavin Paglieri '24, and Peter Pesansky '24

Mission statement and program vision


Mission Statement

The Jesuit High School lacrosse program strives to develop student-athletes of sound moral character and integrity who will contribute positively toward the school community and external world.

As members of the Jesuit lacrosse program we will understand that enrollment at Jesuit and participation in this lacrosse program is a privilege and a gift from God. In order to bring this mission to life we will focus on the following five objectives:

  1. We will always positively support each other on and off the field - in and out of season - knowing that being a member of this program means you are a part of the Jesuit lacrosse family.
  2. We will hold each other and ourselves accountable for our actions knowing that we represent ourselves, our families, and Jesuit High School.
  3. We will always put academics first and understand that we are responsible for completing all academic work to the best of our ability.
  4. We will be “Men for Others” and serve the greater community by showing respect to all and practicing leadership in every aspect of our lives.
  5. We will understand that each day is a gift from God and will lead our lives dedicating all that we do to the glory of God.

 

Program Vision

The Jesuit High School lacrosse program will be a leader in Florida for developing student-athletes of high character and integrity. We will provide a collegiate-like lacrosse experience through weekly film and scout study; fast-paced, structured practice; regular meetings; playing in one of the top venues in the greater Tampa area; and individual ongoing dialogues between each player and the coaching staff. The Jesuit lacrosse program will support the mission of Jesuit High School and strive to develop young men dedicated to serving God through teamwork, dedication, and commitment to a cause greater than any single individual.
