Show LAS Your Old School: LSU Lacrosse

What are the two BIGGEST signifiers of true Old School lacrosse equipment?  A Bacharach bucket helmet and old Brine gloves have to be up there… but I don’t think you can rule out porthole mesh either.  And this post has two of those three!

The LSU Lacrosse Club started up in 1973 and has been running strong ever since.  I’m not totally sure whenthis gear is from exactly, but based on the helmet, my best guess would put it in the mid 1990s.  Maybe 1994?  The modern helmet via Cascade started popping up in 1995-6, and by the time I graduated high school in 1999, most had made the transition.

  • Facemask and chin strap makes me think is late 80’s – early 90’s Sport Helmet, not Bacharach. Jersey fits into that timeframe also…..

  • I have two similar jerseys, one white and one purple, probably a couple of yeas newer but with the same porthole mesh, from my old school lax days at LSU in the early 90’s. (I have one, even older from UF, before transferring to LSU.) Where can I post pix?

  • of course you’re right… you always are!

    Have we gotten to the point where an old bucket helmet regardless of brand can just be called a Bacharach? YOu know, like a Xerox machine? Bacharach is just such a cool name.
