1983 NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship

We’ve come across a few old school lacrosse videos. We’ll be sharing them with you periodically. First up was a highlight reel of Hopkins legend, Peter Scott. Today, we bring you the highlights from the '83 championship.

The 1983 NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship was played at Rutgers University in front of 15,672 fans. Syracuse capped off a 14-1 season with its first "official" NCAA championship as they defeated Johns Hopkins 17 - 16. The Orange led by All-Americans Brad Kotz and Tim Nelson, scored eight straight goals in less than nine minutes late in the game to clinch the title, after Hopkins had gone up 12 - 5 midway through the third quarter. Kotz was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player.
