Laxmedals.com has teamed up with Inside Lacrosse to create award medals for the champions of the upcoming Recruiting Invitational. “Inside Lacrosse is the media king of lacrosse and we are honored to be a part of this first annual premier recruiting event.” Reports Mike Rogers, President of Laxmedals.com. “We worked closely with the IL event staff and created a medal that we think met their vision. It is a hefty 90mm medal with beautiful 3D art. We think this event will allow us to create a unique medallion for each year the event is held and will become instant collector’s items for the participants. The event seems like the place to be for high school lacrosse players looking to improve their game and get exposure to college scouts.”

The IL Recruiting Invitational is an opportunity for players to get seen, make a name for themselves and leave their mark. Throughout the four-day event the Inside Lacrosse team of reporters, analysts, photographers and videographers will be out in full force to chronicle the entire experience, engaging with and highlighting the top players, programs, and coaches on the summer recruiting circuit to create a first-of-its-kind event for the sport.

The IL Recruiting Invitational will offer more than just high-level competition and exposure, but a well-rounded, professional experience for players looking to improve and acquire skills to better navigate the recruiting process. In addition to a recruiting seminar, players will receive media training, interact directly with the Inside Lacrosse staff to build player profiles and have skill sessions with college coaches in between game times. www.ilinvitational.com

Laxmedals.com is proud to again provide the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association with the 2014 recognition awards to its All-American selections and North South All-Star participants. “When you can present the best college lacrosse players with an award we hope they will cherish for a lifetime, well that is something special.” Says Mike Rogers, President of Laxmedals.com. “I was fortunate to be included in both the USILA All-American team and the North South squad while at Rutgers, and I know I would have appreciated getting an additional token of my achievement in the form of the medals we have designed for the current recipients. The All-American medal embodies the spirit of the Native American origins of the game of Lacrosse with the warrior artwork. On the North South All-Star medal we went with the modern 3D lacrosse art, which we think embodies the current vibe of the game and when placed on the United States outline it ties the national nature of the event together nicely.

The United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) is an organization comprised of member colleges and universities which sponsor intercollegiate lacrosse for men. The Association is entrusted to enhance and develop intercollegiate lacrosse by providing leadership, management, and services to its membership so that student-athletes, coaches, and other constituent groups will realize the maximum benefit from the sport of lacrosse.

Laxmedals.com is thrilled to add a very important medal to its vintage medal collection. (Photo above: The Legion of Merit and the Purple Heart being awarded to Captain Jack Maginnis. Presenting are Vice Admirals Clark and Briscoe in 1953)

This medal was awarded to a member of the 1926 United States Naval Academy lacrosse team, defenseman Jack Maginnis. Maginnis was born in Duluth, MN. in 1904 and hailed from Oakland, CA. when admitted to the USNA class of 1927. Maginnis was a three-time letterman on the footbll squad but lettered only once in lacrosse his senior year. The USNA yearbook, Lucky Bag, records Maginnis’ senior year lacrosse season officially as the 1926 lacrosse season, in which the Navy squad finished with a 7-0 record (N.Y.U 4-0, Lafayette 23-0, Lehigh 8-1, Rutgers 10-2, Cornell 3-0, Onondaga Indians 14-3). The Midshipmen concluded the season at West Point with a 3-2 win over Army. Despite Navy’s undefeated record, the Hopkins squad was recognized as the ’26 national lacrosse champions. After entering the fleet, Maginnis began a thirty-one-year naval career serving initially as a meteorologist aboard the Ship of State USS CONSTITUTION. His later assignments were aboard the destroyer USS PARROTT (DD-218), destroyer USS BLACK (DD-666), destroyer USS IRWIN (DD-794), and later commanded the heavy cruiser USS MINNEAPOLIS (CA-36) and heavy cruiser USS SALEM (CA-139). He served in World War II and the Korean Conflict, during which he was the ranking U.S. naval officer wounded.  On July 8, 1953, Capt. Maginnis was serving on the destroyer USS Irwin when the ship was targeted by an estimated 80 rounds from shore batteries near Songjin, North Korea. The ship took a direct hit to her main-mast seriously wounding Maginnis and several others. After a series of three operations on his wounds, Capt. Maginnis returned to active duty in January 1954 and retired in 1957. Capt. Maginnis died in 1977.  Color silver with blue and gold drape ribbon. Manufacturer not marked, but I will assume the manufacturer was the Johnson Company, New York, NY., because later issues of this style medal bears its mark. Measures 1.5 inches across. Stamped “Sterling.”
