Tillman Johnson is the Goalie GOAT at UVA

UVA legend Tillman Johnson made a strong case for greatest lacrosse goalie of all-time during his four years in the crease. As a freshman, Johnson was named ACC Rookie of the Year and wrapped his career in the NCAA as a 4x All-American and 2003 National Champion.

Tillman started all 59 games in his career from 2001-2004 and finished his career third in ACC history with a school-record 700 saves. Known for being incredibly responsive and an acrobat between the irons, Tillman has helped revolutionize the position.

Enjoy footage from Virginia’s 12-7 win over Georgetown in the 2003 NCAA Quarterfinals. The Hoos would go on to win the title with Johnson named the MVP.

Philadelphia took Tillman third-overall in the 2004 MLL Draft, only behind Mikey Powell and Ryan Boyle.

This is the stuff legends are made of.
