What an amazing story the lacrosse life of Len Powers from Peterborough truly is. At age 16, he picked up a lacrosse stick for the first time. And that happened only because the local baseball team he planned to play for was not operating that year. Len is known for his hard work as a player and a builder. He is the type of player/builder every lacrosse club would welcome aboard. Although capable of scoring goals-throughout his entire lacrosse career, Len Powers was best known for his stellar play as a defensive specialist. Winning team championships requires great team defense and Len always contributed significantly. He was a key component of teams he played on-winning, six championships (1 Minto Cup; 3 Mann Cups; 1 Nations Cup; and 1 OLA Minor provincial title). In addition, he is known for his work ethic and is acknowledged as being a team leader at every level he played, both on the floor and in the dressing room. He was team captain of the Peterborough PCOs Junior "A" team in 1972, when they won the Minto Cup with Len winning the Top Defensive Player in the Minto Cup. During his lengthy playing career, Len Powers played with and against many of the greatest players of his generation, where he more than competed - he excelled.
