We’ve come across a few old school lacrosse videos. We’ll be sharing them with you periodically. First up in the spotlight is JHU’s Peter Scott. It’s amazing to watch the ballers of yesteryear. They had skills! Pay attention to their stick skills – last groundball on the video. Pay attention to the uniforms – buckets, Brine, aluminum, daisy dukes, long sleeves, traditional pockets. Pay attention to the names mentioned – Nims, Tucker, Opie, Solomon, Desko, Dressel, Zimmerman. How about Leif Elsmo in the booth? It goes on-and-on.
Peter Scott’s 157 career points, with 99 goals and 58 assists is good for 18th in career points at the school. Scott was a three-time All American for Johns Hopkins. His teams also made it to four straight NCAA Championship finals, winning the title game in 1984. In the 1983 NCAA title game against Brad Kotz and Syracuse, Scott scored 3 goals. In the 1984 title game, again, against Syracuse, he had 2 goals and 3 assists to lead the team. Scott was inducted into the Pennsylvania Lacrosse Hall of Fame and is generally considered to be one of the best lacrosse players to come out of the PA state prep system.
