Top 10 Best Lacrosse Players of All Time

This is the list to find out which Lacrosse players are the best.
The Top Ten
1 Paul Rabil

Paul Rabil scores goals at will and makes it look easy. He is definitely the best lax player of all time!

You have the most skills. I have seen your offseason workouts for the Lizards, and I am subscribed to your YouTube channel. You give a lot of tips.

Probably the best lacrosse player of all time. Nobody will ever surpass his skill level.

2 John Grant Jr.

When I met John Grant at a Valor lacrosse tryout, my heart nearly stopped. John Grant isn't just one of the top three of all time. He's the best to ever play the game. You think about his persistence when he injured his knee - it almost ended his life. But he fought through it and became better than he was before at the position of attack.

John Grant has always been my favorite player, even though I play midfield. Now granted, Lyle Thompson will someday be higher on this list than he is, but in my opinion, he is presently the greatest player of all time.

3 Thomas Sears

First goalie I ever saw take over a lacrosse game. At UVA in '81 (I think) - incredible saves, laser clearing passes, and coming out of the goal to deck guys.

4 Conor Gill
5 Paul Gait

Just as good as Gary - GOAT squared. Sick lefty.

6 Mikey Powell

Mikey Powell can do amazing tricks, like doing a front flip then shooting it behind his back! He is an amazing lacrosse player, and his brother isn't too bad either.

Cool how his last name is named after a skateboard brand. He has a great lacrosse brother too.

Amazing player! It is truly incredible!

7 Brian Wood

Played against Brian. All I can say is it was pure poetry. He is and always will be the greatest of all time. Watch his film. You tell me.

8 Mark Millon

Best shooter, quickest moves, innovator, tough, never scared to drive to the cage, '94 World Cup MVP.

9 Kyle Harrison

Love this guy. I've seen him in person on multiple occasions. He is an amazing player as well!

Super cool guy, and the best player out there (even better than Paul Rabil).

10 Jim Brown James Nathaniel Brown was a former professional American football player and actor. He was a running back for the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League from 1957 through 1965.

One thing I have to say: The only reason people think Paul Rabil is the best is because he gets all the endorsements. I watched him play live and he isn't that good. He doesn't play real lacrosse. By that I mean he doesn't pass. This guy, Jim Brown, the football running back for the Browns, actually had mad skills at lacrosse. He should be at least top ten. I don't know if he's better than Rabil or not because he played 50 years ago, but people, please realize that Paul Rabil isn't as good as you think he is.

He is way better than any lacrosse player ever. He was so big and fast that he could run over anyone and was amazing at the game.

The Contenders
11 Gary Gait

For Paul Gait to be higher than his brother is outrageous. Gary Gait changed the game. No one will ever forget the Air Gait. He carried Syracuse on his shoulders and was the one who brought them to the championship title. Now yes, Paul does sometimes get overshadowed by Gary, but Gary is still one of the top three ever.

Should probably be the #1 player. Dominant, spectacular, made those around him better. Changed the game.

Having Gait at 12 gives this list zero credibility. Number 12? Are you kidding me?

12 Matt Ward
13 Casey Powell

Casey Powell not being in the top 5 makes me so mad. You think about how long this man has played and how much he has changed the game, and you realize that he is classified as a legend. Casey Powell truly is a lacrosse legend.

Casey is a legend. He always sets up clinics at my lacrosse fields, and he is a true legend. If you haven't seen him up close, you haven't seen him before.

This man should be in the top 5. MLL MVP and Offensive MVP when he's in his late 30s. Unreal.

14 Max Seibald

Best MLL player by far. Since coming into the league, this guy has proven he's one of the best scoring middies. He is one of the fastest players on his team: The Denver Outlaws.

Did a clinic at a summer camp I was at. Clearly there to help the kids and to show his overall skill.

15 Rob Pannell
16 John Tavares

Hall of Fame Class of 2016. Ranks first in points, goals, and assists.

17 Lyle Thompson

All-time leading points scorer in NCAA: 175 goals, 225 assists, 400 total points.

18 Dave Pietramala

This man redefined lacrosse and the position of defense. I was shocked when I didn't see him in the top 5. Pietramala is a legend.

19 Matt Rambo
20 Roy Colsey
21 Frank Urso

For those of us who first learned with traditional sticks and even remember the advent of plastic heads, Frank Urso cannot be forgotten. Frank and his coach, the great Bud Beardmore, dominated the game at the precise time the game began to evolve into the modern game we now know.

Frank Urso is the greatest player to ever play for Maryland. Urso helped redefine how to play the game, and it's a shame that his legacy has been forgotten by today's younger players.

How could he not be listed? He changed the game at midfield. A 4x All-American at Maryland and a national champion. At the time, he had the best shot in the game.

22 Chazz Woodson
23 Jordan Wolf

Best Rattlers player I have ever seen. I'm your biggest fan.

24 Scott Bacigalupo
25 Tim Nelson
