Doug Shanahan was a do-it-all midfielder for the ages. The inaugural Tewaaraton Award winner in 2001, he led Hostra to the NCAA tournament twice and became a legend on Long Island. A two sport athlete, Shanahan was one of the final cuts from the New York Jets in 2002 as a defensive back and you could see his talent on the gridiron translate to how he played lacrosse. A 3x All-American, 2002 World Games MVP with Team USA, and MLL All-Star, he was a difference maker in between the lines that you wanted on your team. He could play lockdown defense, score in transition, and then line back up for the faceoff to spark a fast break. A true competitor whose change of direction and 100+ MPH shot made him a threat all the way from the 2pt line. One of the last players to use a Rock-It-Pocket in pro lacrosse, Shanahan played an old-school style that is rare in today's game. Powell Lacrosse gives a big salute to Doug Shanahan!
