Canadian Lacrosse Foundation




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

The painting represents the Spirit of the Lacrosse Player. The Eagle Spirit represents Couarage and Flight of the Player.

Jim Bishop is considered the greatest coach in the history of Canadian Lacrosse. His career spanned 58 years and touched the game at every level and age group as a coach, organizer, manager and promoter. He respected the First Nation peoples for sharing the game with all North Americans. His many accomplishments include winning seven consecutive Minto Cups and initiating efforts at establishing early pro Lacrosse leagues in 1968 and again in 1974-75. "Bish" touched the lives of thousands of young Canadian athletes in a positive manner.
