1994 Men’s Lacrosse National Championship Highlights

20 years have not passed since 1994, and yet at times, it can seem like a different era completely, especially on the lacrosse field. Bucket helmets were all the rage, titanium poles didn’t exist (EN: at least not in mass quantities, see a comment below for more on that) and offset technology wouldn’t find its way into the game for another couple years.

The above being said, these guys can seriously ball, and many of them would still be wizards with a stick in today’s game. Player of today may be bigger, stronger and faster, but are their skills really better? Remember to take into account the sticks these guys were using! You just know guys like Michael Watson would still be ballers…

The goal at the :50 second mark would still be a highlight reel goal today.

What would be the outcome if Princeton or Virginia of 1994 played Princeton or Virginia of today? I’d pay good money to see that game.

  • Technically, titanium shafts did exist in 1994, as it was the first product from Warrior, which was founded in 1992.  I believe the some of the Princeton team used them in during the 1992 season and on which lead to their popularity.

  • I got my first titanium shaft for my senior year season in high school which was ’92-’93.
    I don’t remember the brand, and it might have even been unbranded, but it definitely wasn’t Warrior.
    All I remember is that coach knew where to get them, asked who wanted one, collected money and put in the order.
    Played with it (STX Viper head) through my short college career until some d-bag stole it out of my dorm room.
    Ahh memories…
    Hey what’re you still doing here? Off my lawn!
