Shop4Teams.com Looks Back at Revolutionaries of ‘Lacrosse’

155

Paul and Gary Gait are widely known as the two best athletes to ever don a lacrosse uniform. Twin brothers who played NCAA lacrosse at Syracuse University, Paul and Gary were midfielders who set so many records from 1987 to 1990 that it’s impossible to list them all. The Gait brothers, however, were the men wearing the lacrosse uniforms that are now legendary, being as that the Gait brothers were the ones who popularized innovative lacrosse ‘moves’ such as behind-the-back passing and scoring.

Shop4Teams.com is right there with all of you lacrosse fans when speaking about the fabulous Gait twins. Every one of us holds supreme admiration for their truly outstanding abilities. The Gait brothers’ incredible moves made fans go silent, as if they were witnessing the most awesome spectacle in the world playing out right before their eyes. Lacrosse is a very popular sport in the United States nowadays, and Shop4Teams.com offers lacrosse uniforms and lacrosse jerseys that are as awesome and spectacular as watching those incredible Gait brothers in action.

Gait Lacrosse is an actual phrase used for when the Gait brothers put on their lacrosse uniforms and dominated the game. Paul and Gary have both been stars at all levels of professional lacrosse, including the National Lacrosse League, the Western Lacrosse Association, Major League Lacrosse, and at the international level for the Canadian National Team. The Gait brothers twists and turns were breathtaking to watch over the years; their lacrosse uniforms seemed to disappear and reappear in front of their opponent’s goal as if they were somehow related to Houdini.

The accolades for these men go on and on. As a team, the twins were named Co-MVP’s of the “Mann Cup” in 1999, when they played for the “Victoria Shamrocks.” In 2005, the brothers were inducted into the United States Lacrosse National Hall of Fame, and the following year, both were among the five charter members to be voted into the National Lacrosse League Hall of Fame. Frankly, if not for the Gait brothers, perhaps the sport of lacrosse would not be as popular as it is today. They proved time and time again that they were the ‘best of the best’ when it came to the sport, just as one company has proven time and time again that they are the ‘best of the best’ when it comes to sports uniforms, sports accessories, sports equipment, lacrosse jerseys, lacrosse uniforms…and the list goes on.

While wearing a Shop4Teams.com lacrosse jersey, YOU and YOUR lacrosse team uniform will leave such a lasting impression on your foes, that they’ll feel like the Gait brothers have just knocked them to the field.

Gary Gait is still widely regarded as the best lacrosse player of all time – just a smidge above his twin. Beginning as a true star at the NCAA level at Syracuse with his brother and receiving all the accolades we spoke about, Gait also started playing in the *Major Indoor Lacrosse League* in 1991, where he won the “Rookie of the Year Award.” Gary, as well as sharing and/or receiving all the outstanding lacrosse awards, also set the league record in the NLL for career points with 1,091. Can you believe that?! Upon announcing his retirement from lacrosse on December 30, 2005 at the “Pepsi Center” in Denver, the “Colorado Mammoth” lacrosse team raised Gary’s *lacrosse jersey #22 to the rafters, making him only the second player in NLL history to have his number retired. Gary was also honored in the opening game of the 2006 NLL season. Oddly enough, after having his lacrosse jersey go down in history, Gary shocked everyone by stepping back into a lacrosse uniform and returning to NLL play in January 2009 with the “Rochester Knighthawks.” This ‘move’ was like a twist of fate, considering his brother Paul had been named head coach of the “Knighthawks” in 2008, reuniting the brothers in the world of lacrosse once again. During the 2009 NLL season, Gary was named a reserve to the “All-Star Game,” and is currently serving as an assistant coach in the MLL, as well as being the head coach of the Syracuse University women’s lacrosse team.

Let’s face it, with even one Gait brother on your lacrosse team you were guaranteed to take home the win, the cup, the championship…absolutely anything and everything a *lacrosse team could win!

Paul Gait is also regarded as one of the best lacrosse players of all time. Along with his twin, Paul had a stellar career wearing university lacrosse uniforms – to playing in the *National Lacrosse League*, and beyond. Being one of the best NCAA players of all time, Paul helped lead Syracuse to three national championships and was selected as a *First Team All America by the USILA three times in 1988, 1989, and 1990. Not to mention, Paul was also named the “Most Outstanding Player” of the 1989 “NCAA Division I Lacrosse Championship Tournament.”

Paul initially retired from lacrosse following the 2002 NLL season but – being half of the family unit who ‘plays together stays together’ – Paul returned during the 2005 NLL season to play for the “Colorado Mammoth” right beside his brother. Paul retired once again after the 2005 season had come to an end.
