Quoting from the OLA Press Release
“Jan, as he is better known, was a multi-sport competitor in the Peterborough athletic community. Despite his well-rounded athleticism and talent, lacrosse was his passion and ultimately became his chosen path.
As a Junior-aged player, Jan was best known for the force of his shot; he is routinely described as having the hardest shot of any Junior or Senior player of his time. Jan won two Junior “A” Minto Cups in Peterborough (1972, 1973), a Professional League Championship in Rochester as a rookie player (1974), a Senior “A” Mann Cup with New Westminster (1976) and a Senior “A” Mann Cup with Peterborough (1982), along with a Canadian Field Lacrosse National Championship with Peterborough (1985). Throughout his career Jan played with or against a long list of notable players, including J.J. Johnston, Len Powers, Morley Kells, Paul Evans, and Bob Allan.
