OJALL WELCOMES CODY JAMIESON AS NEW GOVERNOR FOR SIX NATIONS
February 6, 2021
TORONTO, ONTARIO—The Ontario Junior A Lacrosse League (OJALL) Board of Governors met this morning to welcome Cody Jamieson as the new Governor of the league’s Six Nations franchise.
The captain of the Halifax Thunderbirds has spent his entire 10-year career in the National Lacrosse League (NLL) with the same organization after signing the longest contract in league history as a rookie. The four-time OJALL Iroquois Trophy winner won the Minto Cup with the Six Nations Arrows in 2007. That same year, he was selected as the playoff MVP, Minto Cup MVP and the league’s most outstanding player.
In the 2009 NCAA National Championship, Jamieson scored the game-winning goal in sudden death overtime to give Syracuse their second national championship in a row. The backbone of three-straight NLL championships with the Rochester Knighthawks and three Mann Cup championships with the Six Nations Chiefs—Jamieson’s list of lacrosse accomplishments are staggering.
Halifax Thunderbirds Head Coach Mike Accursi has described Jamieson as “a guy we can always count on when the game is at stake,” something the OJALL has experienced first hand. Prior to stepping up for Six Nations, Jamieson joined a distinguished group of well-known lacrosse leaders on the OJALL’s Advisory Board to provide counsel on lacrosse related matters and the league’s return to play plan.
“Cody’s commitment to ensuring Six Nations will continue to play in the OJALL and compete for the Minto Cup speaks volumes to his ability to show up in big moments,” said league co-chair Jeff Williamson. “He is one of the greatest in the game today and we are really excited to have him join the league’s Board of Governors.”
The league is set to make a number of announcements in the coming weeks. For the latest news and updates follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
