Perhaps the greatest player in the history of lacrosse is Jim Brown.
Brown, who starred in both football and lacrosse, was named by The Sporting News as the best football player ever.
A three-time All-American at Manhasset High School, he was a two-time-time All-American at Syracuse.
But his pro career was spent in the NFL, where he became a Hall-of-Fame after starring with the Cleveland Browns.
Brown’s lacrosse career reached its peak in the early 1950s.
Since then, there have only been a handful of African-American stars in the game.
Will that trend change?
