How Will Fall and Winter Sports Changes Affect High School Lacrosse?
How Will Fall and Winter Sports Changes Affect High School Lacrosse?
Tue Aug 25 2020 | Brian Logue | High School
Most high school lacrosse seasons never got off the ground in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, the 2021 seasons will have altered timelines in many locations around the country.
High school football games were played in some parts of the country this past weekend, while other regions are still working on plans to get fall sports off the ground.
Such is life in 2020.
High school lacrosse is still months away from starting, but how states handle fall sports could have significant impacts on lacrosse — ranging from what time of the year the sport is played, how long the season lasts and what overlaps there are with other sports’ playing seasons.
For instance, in North Carolina, the lacrosse season has been moved up to be a winter sport with the season running from January 11 through March 12. That timeline will directly overlap with a number of other sports’ adjusted schedules, including boys’ and girls’ basketball, football and boys’ soccer.
The North Carolina Lacrosse Coaches Association has reached out to the North Carolina High School Athletic Association asking them to push the season start back to April 12 to avoid those conflicts.
Here’s a look at what’s happening in the 23 states where high school lacrosse is a sponsored sport by the state’s official multi-sport sanctioning body. (Note: States where high school lacrosse is played, but not fully sanctioned by the state, are also subject to impact from fall/winter sports schedule changes. The lacrosse entities in those areas will have greater flexibility to adjust as circumstances dictate.)
California: The California Interscholastic Federation will leave it up to each individual section to determine the playing dates for lacrosse, but with fall sports being pushed to the spring in the state, most sections are expected to delay the start of lacrosse season until late April.
Colorado: The Colorado High School Activities Association placed lacrosse into “Season D” of its modified 2020-21 schedule and the dates for the sport will be April 26 through June 12.
Connecticut: The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference has not announced any updates to the spring sports season, but a shortened fall sports season is expected. Fall sports teams resumed conditioning Monday and can begin non-contact skills activities in small groups beginning Aug. 29. Any fall sports not able to be played this fall will not be played later in the year.
Delaware: The Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association will announce dates following a September board meeting. The current plan is to start spring sports in mid-April.
Florida: The start of fall sports was delayed in the state, with practices beginning Monday, but no adjustment has been announced for spring sports. The original timeline for the school year has spring sports practices beginning on Jan. 25 with regular season games allowed as early as Feb. 15.
Georgia: Fall sports were delayed two weeks by the Georgia High School Activities Association but are scheduled to begin with games in early September in most jurisdictions. Lacrosse practices are set to begin on Jan. 18 with the first games allowed on Feb. 8.
Illinois: The Illinois High School Association has moved lacrosse from a spring to summer sport, with the season dates running from May 3 to June 26.
Maine: The start of fall sports has been delayed by the Maine Principals Association with the possibility of the sports being moved to the spring. No announcement has been made on spring sports, which are slated to begin practices on March 29 with games on April 15.
Maryland: The Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association has postponed the start of the fall and winter sports seasons until after the first semester of classes. No information has been made public on spring sports, but plans for modified competition seasons for all sports during the second semester are expected to be announced soon.
Massachusetts: The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association has pushed back the spring sports season, which is now scheduled to run April 26 through July 3.
Michigan: The Michigan High School Athletic Association has delayed the schedules for several fall sports, including some regional variations due to varying conditions, but the spring schedule is currently set to allow practices beginning March 15. Football will be moved to the spring, which could cause significant overlap with boys’ lacrosse.
Minnesota: The Minnesota State High School League moved football and volleyball from the fall to a condensed spring season, pushing back the start of traditional spring sports, including lacrosse, until May.
New Hampshire: The New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association has delayed the start of fall practices until Sept. 8. No announcement has been made on spring sports.
New Jersey: The New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association released a detailed calendar of dates for fall and winter sports with fall outdoor sports beginning practices on Sept. 14. The dates for spring sports will be announced at a later time.
New York: New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Monday that lower-risk fall sports (cross country, field hockey, soccer swimming and tennis) can begin competition on Sept. 21, but all other fall sports are only permitted to practice at this point. The New York State Public High School Athletic Association is expected to announce its plans this week following the governor’s recent guidance.
North Carolina: Traditional fall sports have been moved to the winter and spring by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, resulting in a major switch for lacrosse. Boys’ and girls’ lacrosse will now have their seasons run early from January 11 through March 12.
Ohio: The start of the fall sports season was delayed, but the Ohio High School Athletic Association got approval from Governor Mike DeWine last week allowing for “contact” sports in the fall (field hockey, football and soccer) to begin their seasons. No update for the spring has been announced.
Pennsylvania: The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association voted last week to allow fall sports to begin practicing on Monday. Games for most fall sports would start on Sept. 11, and presumably spring sports would start on time if things move as planned.
Rhode Island: The Rhode Island Interscholastic League delayed the start of fall sports about a month until Sept. 14. The start date for spring sports will be contingent upon whether or not some of the fall sports end up shifting their schedules to the spring.
South Carolina: Fall sports were delayed by the South Carolina High School League and seasons will be condensed. No updates have been released for spring sports, which include lacrosse practices scheduled to begin on Feb. 3.
Utah: The Utah High School Athletics Association began the fall season with no delays, so practices for boys’ and girls’ lacrosse are scheduled to start on time on March 1.
Vermont: The Vermont Principals Association announced that no 11-on-11 tackle football would be played this year. It will be replaced by a 7-on-7 touch football version. Also, volleyball matches must be played outdoors and all athletes from every sport must wear a mask while competing. Guidance on winter sports is expected on Oct. 15, so there’s still significant time to see how lacrosse might be impacted.
Virginia: The Virginia High School League delayed the start of all sports until mid-December, resulting in a condensed playing calendar. The lacrosse season will run from April 12 until June 26.

High School | US Lacrosse
Lacrosse is one of the fastest-growing sports at the high school level. Several US Lacrosse chapters also play significant roles in organizing regular season play and running state championships in areas where the sport is not sanctioned.
The National Tournament, held annually in May with its origins dating back to the early 1930s, has been played in New York, Pennsylvania, and Maryland in recent years and continues to be a significant draw for high school-aged players. With nearly 70 teams from across the country competing annually, the National Tournament has become one of the nation’s marquee college recruiting events. The event is open to all high school-aged players, but players must try out for regional teams in order to participate.

US Lacrosse is proud to support the Michael Breschi Scholarship, which is awarded annually to two (2) graduating high school seniors who plan to attend college and are the son or daughter of a coach. The parent or guardian can be either a male or female coach in high school or college and should be a full-time employee of an educational institution. The scholarship is named in memory of Michael, son of UNC head coach Joe Breschi, and established in 2007 to honor his memory following a fatal accident.
In recent years, college recruiters have accelerated the timeline and created recruiting formulas that are unique to them. Distressed by these changes, US Lacrosse endorsed and supported a proposal submitted jointly by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association and the Intercollegiate Men’s Lacrosse Coaches Association to prohibit college lacrosse coaches from communicating with prospective student-athletes until Sept. 1 of their junior year of high school. That proposal was approved by the NCAA Division I Council in 2017 and went into effect immediately. More information about the college recruiting calendar is available from the NCAA, and can be accessed via the buttons below.

State by State High School Season Start Dates, Championship Dates
(Inside Lacrosse Photo: Dave Anderson)
In much of the Sunbelt, lacrosse teams started practicing about two months ago and they’ve got a month of games already completed.
In Maryland, Pennsylvania and Ohio, many teams started practicing at the beginning of the month, and games get underway over the next week or 10 days.
In much of the Northeast, the start of practice is still weeks away.
The staggered start dates are nothing new to high school lacrosse, but they are certainly more pronounced this spring due to a varied approach to states having competed last fall and this winter (take a look at this map of when states are playing football), as well as the presence of in-person learning.

2021 High School Lacrosse Season: April 26th – June 27th
The Washington High School Boys Lacrosse Association (WHSBLA, a Washington State Non-Profit) and the Washington Schoolgirls Lacrosse Association (WSLA, a Washington State Non-Profit) in alignment with the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA, a Washington State Non-Profit) have adjusted their 2021 high school lacrosse seasons to April 26th, 2021 through June 27th, 2021.
These new dates are also consistent with the Oregon High School Lacrosse Association (OHSLA) and the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA):
This schedule change will keep Boys & Girls Lacrosse in the same high school sports season as Baseball, Fastpitch Softball, Boys Soccer, Tennis, Golf and Track & Field. This decision was made in consultation with high school athletic directors from around the state, as well as WIAA executive staff. By keeping lacrosse in the same season with all of its usual “sports season neighbors” (i.e. Baseball, Boys Soccer, Track & Field, etc.) it makes it easier for athletic departments, athletic directors and city field schedulers to keep a consistent field schedule. It also avoids a direct conflict with boys lacrosse players who also play high school football (WIAA Season 3: March 1st – April 26th) and girls lacrosse players who also play high school soccer (WIAA Season 3: March 1st – April 26th).
Although playing back-to-back seasons for any of these crossover athletes is not ideal (i.e. girls soccer straight into girls lacrosse, or football straight into boys lacrosse), it is the only schedule that would work, with the least amount of impact. The fall season (WIAA Season 1: September 7th – November 1st) was not an option/allowed, the winter season (WIAA Season 2: January 4th – March 1st) is too cold and wet for an outdoor/field sport, most grass fields are closed, and the early spring season (WIAA Season 3: March 1st – April 26th) would put us in direct conflict with football, girls soccer and volleyball. Given the need for all sports organizations to be flexible due to the pandemic, this was the most logistically viable option. The ultimate goal is to give every athlete and each specific sport a season in 2021.
When is Lacrosse Season? Your Lacrosse Questions Answered – LaxWeekly
When is the lacrosse season? That’s one of the most common questions people ask me when I talk about lacrosse. With so many different levels of lacrosse, it can be confusing to know when the actual season starts and ends. Today I want to clarify all of the confusion so you can know exactly when the lacrosse season is.
So, when is lacrosse season? For most non-pro lacrosse players, lacrosse season is during the spring. For pro lacrosse players, lacrosse season is during the summer.
Let’s look at the lacrosse season for each level of lacrosse:
NCAA – Division 1, 2 and 3 Lacrosse Season
For NCAA lacrosse players, the first lacrosse game usually happens on February 1st and ends on Memorial Day Weekend where the NCAA Lacrosse Championships happen. Thus, NCAA lacrosse is a spring sport. Here’s a detailed breakdown of the season:
- Regular Season Games: Feb 1st – End of April
- Conference Championships: Early May
- Playoffs: Early May – Memorial Day Weekend
After teams play a number of regular season games, they play in a conference tournament. For example, Duke and Virginia lacrosse are in the ACC, so they compete in the ACC lacrosse tournament. Winners of the conference tournament have an automatic spot in the playoffs.
Even though lacrosse games are played in the spring, there is a large amount of practice and preparation done in the fall. You’ll hear people call it “fall ball.” Pretty much the moment lacrosse players step foot on campus, they are training for lacrosse. This could be in the form of captains-only practices, lifting sessions or individual shooting sessions. Most college lacrosse teams will also scrimmage other teams in order to prepare for the real season.
There has certainly been backlash from lacrosse coaches and players with such an early start to the lacrosse season. With many lacrosse schools in the Northeastern US, February games are often played in the snow and ice. This is certainly not ideal weather to play lacrosse.
And don’t forget about the summer. Even though lacrosse players aren’t in school, they are almost certainly following some sort of training program given to them by their lacrosse coaches. Many of the fitness tests happen when players get back in the fall, so players must stay in shape in the summer and train.
Premier Lacrosse League (PLL) Lacrosse Season
The Premier Lacrosse League is the sport’s most popular league. It starts at the tail end of the NCAA lacrosse season and ends during September. Thus, PLL lacrosse is a summer sport. Here’s a breakdown of the season in more detail:
- Regular Season: End of May – End of August
- Playoffs: All of September
With the small number of teams in the PLL (7 teams as of now), it wouldn’t make sense to split the teams into conferences, so there isn’t a conference championship.
In addition to the normal lacrosse season, each PLL team hosts a training camp 2 weeks prior to the start of the season. This gives the teams an ample amount of time to develop chemistry and strategy before they start the season
Major League Lacrosse (MLL) Lacrosse Season
The MLL is lacrosse’s other outdoor league. The season starts at the end of May and ends in Mid-August, thus making MLL lacrosse a summer sport.
- Regular Season: End of May – Mid August
- Playoffs: August – September or October
High School Lacrosse Season
With each state having its own set of lacrosse rules, it’s difficult to give one answer for the high school lacrosse season. For most East Coast states, lacrosse season starts late February/Early March and ends by the time school is out. This varies state by state though.
For example, I live in Texas and our lacrosse season started in early February and ended late May. For my friends in other states, the season didn’t start until mid-March and ended in Early June.
Club (Select) Lacrosse Season
More serious lacrosse players tend to play for a select or club team in addition to their high school team. These club teams give players the chance to get recruited by college lacrosse coaches and sharpen their skills outside of school lacrosse.
Most club lacrosse teams play in the summer and fall. During the summer, lacrosse players travel from all across the country to different lacrosse tournaments. I’d say a majority of the “elite” tournaments take place in East Coast states such as Maryland or New York.
When I played club lacrosse, I spent my summers traveling all over the country to Colorado, Virginia, North Carolina, Massachusetts, etc.
During the fall, club teams play in local tournaments since school is in session. Fall lacrosse is more important than ever with early recruiting.
Minnesota high school lacrosse schedules posted
Though some spring sports got their seasons going before April hit, the lacrosse season will wait until April 12 to get things going. Both the boys and girls’ lacrosse seasons will kick off that day with 16 games taking place.
On the boys’ side, none of the 12 teams opening the season that Tuesday made the state tournament in 2017. However, one matchup that does stick out is Tartan traveling to White Bear Lake.
These east side foes will open the season against each other in a Section 4 matchup. In 2017, the Titans ended the Bears’ season 18-7 in the section semifinal. Tartan ultimately lost the section final to Mahtomedi, but the Titans will look to break through this season.
A day to circle on the boys’ schedule is April 28. That Saturday features 14 games, including a pair of matchups between some of the state’s best. Eagan will head to Benilde-St. Margaret’s that day in a rematch of the 2017 state championship, which the Wildcats won 19-12.
That same day, Wayzata and Mahtomedi will face off. Both the Trojans and Zephyrs made the state tourney last season, with both advancing to the semifinals before having their seasons stopped a game short of the title match.
The girls’ season kicks off on April 12 with 10 games. This slate features a matchup between Lakeville South and Owatonna.
Though they are in different conferences, the Cougars and Huskies will clash in a game that will likely have implications on Section 1 seeding, a carrot on a stick for teams looking to get over the section playoff hump and into the state tournament.
Another game to watch will be Prior Lake versus Farmington on May 3. The Tigers will host their South Suburban Conference rival in a rematch of the 2017 state tournament third-place game. The Lakers got the best of Farmington 14-4 last season and will look to build on their success last year.
The game that will likely receive the most attention is Blake versus Eden Prairie. This clash of the titans will take place May 24 at Blake. The Eagles beat the Bears 16-10 in last year’s state championship.
Click here for the full boys’ schedule and here for the complete girls’ schedule. Or go to the “Search” box at the top right corner of the page and type the name of your favorite squad into “Team Finder” for that team’s specific schedule.
If your team’s schedule isn’t posted or needs updating, send the necessary information to [email protected] Also, be aware that with the variable spring weather, these schedules are subject to change.

Inside Lacrosse TV
Inside Lacrosse TV is the name of Inside Lacrosse’s streaming video website and their ESPN TV show.The TV Show is an hour-long special that usually runs twice a year as a “preview” and “summary” of the season before and after the college season.
As of May 2009 [Refresh] , The Lacrosse Forum (TLF) has over 50,000 registered users, making it the largest online lacrosse forum. 
IL Indoor is the National Lacrosse League News blog.Formerly known as “NLL Insider”, it was founded in 2005 as a complementary product to Inside Lacrosse so that Inside Lacrosse can focus on field lacrosse while IL Indoor focuses on box lacrosse. It has its own forums, similar to the lacrosse forums. Some of the authors are former NLL players, including Teddy Jenner, Brian Shanahan, Marty O’Neill, and Tom Ryan. 
IL Indoor Forums
IL Indoor also has its own separate message board forum, IL Indoor Forums, which focuses primarily on National Lacrosse League news and discussion.This bulletin board began in 2000 and was originally known as the National Lacrosse League Bulletin Board until Inside Lacrosse acquired and renamed it. It is the premier NLL fan journalism website and a place where serious NLL fans, staff and players can share news, rumors, opinions, and ideas to improve both Lacrosse Boxing and NLL. It also serves as a living repository of NLL history and a resource for new NLL fans to learn about the league, its rules and history by reviewing past posts or chatting with longtime fans.
The company was founded in 1996 by Robert Carpenter, Duke of Lacrosse and Vestal, a New York High School graduate. Knowing that fans can’t truly invest in sports if they don’t have access to the news and the personalities around them, Inside Lacrosse was born. A ham and egg operation was launched in Carpenter’s spare bedroom in Towson, Maryland, which involved printing and mailing weekly newsletters of the results of lacrosse addicts across the country in top-notch envelopes to keep everything out of date.The first issue was a 16-page black and white newspaper, consisting mainly of boxes and statistics. Among the stories were news that the states of Michigan and New Hampshire are abandoning their university programs for men, as well as the epic victory of Syracuse 22-21 over Virginia. American City Business Magazines acquired the magazine in 2007

90,000 Guided Tour of the American High School | Fresher
It was a long-standing desire to be in an American school and see what is happening behind the impregnable school walls.Below are photographs of a high school in a small American town in the hinterland.
The school doors are closed. To enter the building, you need to call the video intercom. Many schools have a metal detector at the entrance.
A secretary sits at the entrance, she asks clarifying questions, checks her lists, gives a visitor to fill out a questionnaire, signs a badge and asks to wait.
The change begins. A few minutes later, the teacher comes up and we go to the class.
The American school is a very difficult place to get to.All this was possible thanks to a good friend in the international department in Notre Dame, without her help nothing would have happened. The coordination took place in several stages. The first question on my part was the question of photography, to which the answer was given – you cannot take pictures at school. After several letters, we agreed that you shouldn’t take pictures of children in the corridors, but you can take pictures of the class.
Each classroom is equipped with a projector. The presentation consisted of a large number of photographs of places in Russia and Moscow.In pictures and in words, I compared two completely different peoples, two cultures, two ways of thinking. He talked about historical nuances, differences in urban planning, and approaches to the same problems. Children twelve years old listened attentively and asked a huge number of questions.
Some lessons such as “Sex education” are taught separately to boys and girls. In this school, this practice extends to many other subjects, so there are only boys in the class and for some reason one girl.
Graduation of schools
First, the child goes to elementary school – Elementary school – and studies there from the first to the fifth grade. Primary schools are small, and there may be several in one district.
From the sixth to the eighth grade, the student studies in the middle school – Middle school. The secondary school is larger than the primary school, and in most cases there is one per district. From all primary schools, children move to a secondary school in their area and continue their education there together for three years – grades 6-7-8.
A person cannot go to school from another area.In disadvantaged areas, with low living standards and low rental costs, the quality of schools is also poor. In order for your child to go to a good school, you need to move to a more expensive area.
In the ninth grade, schoolchildren go to high school – High school. In most cases, there are only a few high school schools in the city, if the city is small, then there may be one large school altogether.
In the city of South Bend, one hundred thousand, there are about thirty elementary schools, fifteen high schools and five high schools.Lockers.
The names of the students are embroidered on the backs.
Children are driven to school by a school bus or by their parents / nannies by car. The bus driver has a precisely laid route, he knows who to pick up where and at what time. The bus stops at your home or at the nearest intersection.
From a story about Quebec:
When a school bus stops, a mini-barrier is pulled out in front to prevent schoolchildren from crossing the road in front of the bus. And on the driver’s side, a plate with a Stop sign is pushed back so that the drivers driving behind would stop and let the children pass.Immediately after the presentation, the children went to lunch, many of them had bags from home.
Dining room. There was a huge line of hungry screaming children behind.
Issuance of children
Children whose parents prefer to pick up their children on their own, after the end of the lessons, line up near the exit from the school. At the exit, a line of cars with parents lined up along the road. The transfer of children takes place under the direction of one or more teachers to make sure that the child recognizes the people in the car.Library. On the left is an open computer lab where the lesson was also held. Wireless internet throughout the school.
Painted glass in the corridors.
Difficulty levels of class
The public approach to personality in the states is very simple – everyone should feel comfortable. This can be traced at all levels, and originates in school. If a child does not master the program of a certain subject, he is transferred to a class with a reduced level of difficulty. At the same time, this class is not called a class for lagging behind, in the certificate next to the name of the subject there will be a number 1, 2 or 3.A child can get an A in the same way, but this A cannot be compared with that received in the class with the highest level of difficulty. The level of difficulty passed will be important when entering the university.

The best students get the opportunity to study for free at the best universities in the state. My neighbor Rob was born in Berkeley, California and was ranked in the top 1% of graduates in his area at school, leaving the state paying his full tuition at UC Berkeley – about $ 30.000 per year.

The adjective “great” refers to words that resemble an empty glass, waiting for someone to fill it with any content. Dignitaries worthy of their calling will turn to Mr. Webster’s impressive dictionary to find the exact definition of the word. But to give you a precise and reliable definition, we introduce Jim Brown to you.
Jim Brown can be called the greatest running back in the history of professional football. However, in exactly the same way, Babe Rath could be called the greatest left-handed hitter in baseball history. They were both great. No, much more. And Brown had so many virtues that he could sell them off at a discount.
This modern-day superman set foot on a sparsely populated island of greatness while still in high school in Manhasset, Long Island, where his athletic achievements spanned baseball, football, basketball, track running and lacrosse. Having won fifteen school awards in five sports, he chose to limit himself to football, basketball and running. Brown not only averaged 14.9 yards per run in football and 38 points per game in basketball, but one of those stories that “grow” like Pinocchio’s nose claims that Casey Stengel tried to persuade Brown to play baseball in the Yankee pharmaceutical club system.
However, despite so many talents, the University of Syracuse remained the only consumer of his services – and then only in partial lacrosse classes.But before he left the university, his achievements became as impressive as the institution itself.
Brown averaged “only” 13.1 points per basketball game in Syracuse; he became one of the greatest players in lacrosse history. And if you listen to the old people, then the best, he averaged 5.7 yards per run, totaling 2091 yards and 187 points, and 37 of them were obtained after drifts; in addition, he excelled on the treadmill, and especially in the high jump.
Those who remember him from Syracuse days can still imagine this 100-kilogram, perfectly sculpted Greek statue, endowed with excellent, powerful musculature, worthy of the closest attention, ranging from wide shoulders like a door to a thirty-two-inch aspen waist, with whose pants almost fell off. On the playing field, these heavy muscles and mighty shoulders merged together as he carried the ball or lacrosse club in his left hand, resting it like a newborn, and the right, as if by its own will, repulsed and scattered all who tried to get in his way, scattering defenders are like pins.
Syracuse still recalls one game that vividly demonstrated his greatness at the college level: the match for the Cotton Bowl , held in 1957. While the selection committee pondered sourly whether or not to invite him to Syracuse after several setbacks, the most recent being a 61-6 defeat from Alabama in the 1953 Orange Bowl, Brown took matters into his own. hands scoring 43 points in the season final against Colgate’s team with six drifts and seven extra points when the Orange win 67-6 to win the right to face Southwest Conference representative Texas Christian University (TCU).
Everyone expected the game to turn into a duel between Brown and the famous THU runner Jim Pig. But in reality the match turned into a duel between THU and Brown. What was the scenario of the game? He was not there, just Brown was running, throwing, responding to punches, hitting and scoring. He brought the Syracuse team 21 points of all points, although his teammates lost 27:28. After the game, THU coach Abe Martin expressed his general impression with the following words: “Only an ignoramus or a blind man can not call Jim Brown a great player.”
That spring, Paul Brown of Cleveland’s side-by-side team was looking in the annual NFL draft for a quarterback to replace Otto Graham and bring the Brown back to their former heights. However, when the Steelers picked Len Dawson, the number one pick in 1957, and the other two teams found quarterbacks as well, Brown had to go back to the board and take Jim Brown.
And when, in his very first exhibition game, J.Brown broke through the defensive lines and landed the ball in the playing field, P. Brown took his rookie aside and patted his shin-protected shoulders: “Now you are my fullback.” Then he laid the entire attack of Cleveland on his massive shoulders. P. Brown used J. Brown in the middle and at the edges of the field, so to speak, combining defense and attack in a single person. In addition, at times he even used J. Brown’s services as a host, just like if you had money sent from home when you did not ask for it.
– If you already have a thoroughbred horse, – P. Brown explained his idea, – you have to ride it.
This alchemy brought immediate results as the Cleveland Browns rose again to the heights of the Eastern Conference – in full accordance with the Providence of God and the plans of Paul Brown. And Jim Brown, straining his heart of a purebred horse, skidded the ball 202 times, thereby earning the title of champion, and in one of the games with the Los Angeles Sheep he showed the then record result of 237 yards.
Over the next four seasons, Jim Brown became the greatest carrier after the bacillus carrier Typhoid Mary  and earned the permanent title of carry champion, averaging 5.1 yards per carry and 1,380 yards total per season. His style in practice was not a style, but, as he himself said, “the use of the most varied abilities.” Lacking an established reputation as a runner, he was able to turn, slip, cut off an opponent, retreat, twist, step over, stick out his shoulder, push, brush off his forearm, and so on.It’s not hard to imagine Brown turning, dodging, pushing away disappointed defenders, holding out his hand and tearing the front line to shreds with a loud crash, and then, as if he saw the light of day, rushing forward like lightning. Accelerating at ease, he could break away from his pursuers, leaving them far behind.
However, Brown’s habit of slowly and confidently returning to the fight after each transfer is especially memorable.Slowly lifting his body off the ground, he seemed to be cautiously returning to the fight, as if his legs were hurting, with all his movements pretending that it would take him at least two weeks to get back in line for the next game, while in fact In fact, his inertia was partly due to the desire to consider the enemy’s defensive formations or to hide the received bruises, as well as, when he kicked off the ground with his knuckles, the unwillingness to touch the cold ground with his palms, which, in his opinion, could provoke a fight.And then suddenly, suddenly and imperceptibly, as if hearing somewhere in the distance the echoes of the trumpet of the Archangel Gabriel, Brown dug his hands into the ball, like a mechanical toy, and rushed at the opposing linemen.
But the main thing is how other players remember the 32nd number. Asking some is like asking a lamppost about his relationship to canine marauders. Chuck Bednarik, the ubiquitous Philadelphia Eagles player, called him superhuman. Alex Karras, the great defensive midfielder who played for the Detroit Lions, said: “To stop him, you had to give every player in the defensive lines an ax.”Dick Modzelewski, one of the widest-shouldered defenders in the New York Giants’ broad defense, argued that “God just didn’t create the best fullback. If the NFL lasts another two thousand years, there will be no second fullback as good. To knock Brown down, I needed the help of our entire defense and Sam Huff. ” Well, Huff himself, who made a career on the fight with Brown, once wearily said: “Jim Brown can be stopped only by shooting him at the exit from the locker room.”
However, in 1962 his victories came to an end.In the most literal sense of the word. After injuring his left wrist early in the season, he was forced to carry the ball in his destructive hand. And now Brown has become, at least in his own eyes, an ordinary mortal, his run was “only” 996 yards, his run dropped to 4.3, and the championship in drifts passed to Jim Taylor – the Packer from Green Bay.
The whole 1962 season turned into a complete disappointment, and not only for J. Brown, but also for P. Brown and the Cleveland Browns.Paul Brown traded Bobby Mitchell for the draft rights for Ernie Davis, who was supposed to strengthen the Brown’s attack. However, the winner of the “Heisman Prize”  was struck by leukemia before he could become a professional player, and Jim Brown was left without support, without a brother to distract the enemy. After the lackluster company, in which Paul Brown gradually began to move further and further away from the team – so much so that one could already feel confident that the team and coach would not be engaged in re-dealing at Christmas – Paul Brown was removed from the team by its owner. Art Modell after a short riot of the player himself.
Freeing himself from Paul Brown’s limitations of constantly changing guardians and signals, J. Brown regained form in 1963, racing across the green field of 1,863 yards and earning another championship title. The following year, he became champion again, and the Cleveland Browns won the NFL championship ahead of the Baltimore Foals, with J. Brown playing thirty games on a 151 yard pass. And then, having won his eighth league title in nine years, in 1965, Jim Brown left football at the age of twenty-nine, leaving the football field long before his role could be played.
Explaining the reasons for such an early end of his career, Brown said: “I left the game even before I became like many of my acquaintances – sitting on a bench with scars and bruises and looking suspiciously at all the young guys, believing that another alien might take their place. ”
But although he had to change the football stadium to the Hollywood stage, no one has yet managed to take the place of Jim Brown, the athlete who so accurately defines the word “great”.
