On Monday, November 13, at Hampden-Sydney College, Sid Jamieson shared his thoughts in a lecture entitled More Than Just a Game. Jamieson, who is now retired, coached the Division I lacrosse program at Bucknell University for 38 years and was a 25-year veteran of the Bucknell football coaching staff. He was a catalyst for advancing the Native American presence on the international lacrosse scene as the Iroquois National Team coach in the 1980's.
A graduate of SUNY-Cortland, Jamieson is a frequent lecturer to Native American youth on the subjects of education, self-motivation, and self-esteem. For decades he has presented at lacrosse camps and to professional lacrosse organizations across the nation on intercultural and international understanding. He has been inducted into the Pennsylvania Lacrosse Hall of Fame, the Bucknell University Athletics Hall of Fame and, most recently, the SUNY Cortland Athletics Hall of Fame. In 2005 Jamieson was honored with the Iroquois Nationals Award for his lifetime commitment and extraordinary contribution to the "Creator's Game."
Sponsored by the Office of Intercultural Affairs and Hampden-Sydney College Lacrosse Team, Jamieson's presentation was at 7:30 PM in Crawley Forum.
