Men For Others


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.

Now, first-year coach Charlie Cummins takes over after the Tigers claimed their second-consecutive District Championship in 2019, making it 5 District titles in 8 years. Jesuit defeated Berkeley Prep 9-3 to capture the District Championship then went on to beat Steinbrenner (17-5) and Newsome (7-6) to advance to the Region Final, where it lost to Orlando Bishop Moore. The Tigers finished the season 14-8, and Casey Fuss '20, Cade Myers '19 and Kenny Lane '19 concluded the year on the All-Region team.

Each season, 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), and Seth Cashen '18 (Bellarmine University).

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 towards the school community and external world.

As members of the Jesuit High School lacrosse program we will understand that enrollment at Jesuit High School 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 5 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 High School 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.
