Jesuit High School Tampa
Forming young men in the Tampa Bay area since 1899
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. fine-tuned and adapted lacrosse for French pioneers in Canada. A few centuries later, after several years as a club sport, Jesuit High School's lacrosse team began Florida High School Athletic Association play as a Varsity sport in the spring of 2012. Heading into 2017 under 1st-year head coach Ryan Henry, the Tigers have won three District titles in five years. Jake Lemon '18 (27 goals, 38 assists in 21 games in 2016) and Joe McGonnigal '18 (37 goals, 10 assists) are the leading returning scorers, Seth Cashen '18 (19 takeaways in 2016) and Cade Myers '19 (46 ground balls) are among the top defenders, and Brad Baker '17 signed to play collegiately at Holy Cross.

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.

At Jesuit, we are responding in a dynamic way to the changing needs of education in the 21st century.
It is an exciting era, with the constant infusion of new technology and the increasing emphasis on student engagement in the learning process.
In 2014 Jesuit claimed the FHSAA's highest honor among all Class 5A schools in academics (Academic Team Champion) and athletics (All-Sports Award).
Each and every gift makes a difference to the students of Jesuit High School as they strive to become "Men for Others."
