Canadian lacrosse legend Gaylord Powless passes away at his home in the Six Nations reserve. One of the great playmakers of all time, Powless had 824 career assists, eighth-best in the combined Ontario Lacrosse Association Major/Senior and professional box lacrosse history.
His Junior career, 1964 to 1967, was spent as the centerpiece of the almost unbeatable Oshawa Green Gaels, coached by legendary Jim Bishop, where he twice was awarded the Ken Ross Trophy for ability and sportsmanship, twice awarded the Jim McConaghy Memorial Cup as the most valuable player of the Minto Cup finals, and four times won the points in the OLA Junior A, Senior A and Major; Western Lacrosse Association; National Lacrosse League action.
Gaylord was 54, his accomplishments on the floor will live forever as a testament to his family, the game, the sport and his people
