SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Syracuse men's lacrosse coach John Desko has been elected to the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame.
A two-time national coach of the year, Desko has won five national championships since taking over in 1999. He has a record of 258-86-0 (.750) and keeps alive a school streak - all four head coaches in the history of the men's program have been elected to the Hall of Fame. Desko joins Laurie Cox (1916–1930), Roy Simmons Sr. (1931–1970), and Roy Simmons Jr. (1971–1998).
“I’m honored to be inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame,” Desko, a Syracuse-area native, said Thursday in a release. “I’ve been so fortunate in my time at Syracuse to be surrounded by incredible players, coaches and administrators, which made the success of our program possible."
