1999 Roger Buck Smith 473

Hall of Famer Ross Powless (1969) called Roger OBuck¹ Smith 'among the four best lacrosse players I ever saw', and his achievements back up that phrase. He was an outstanding team player and leader who excelled at both offence and defense and, while still a member of the Peterborough Junior A team, was called up by the Senior A club and won Mann Cups in Both 195' and O5'. His Senior A career included stops in St. Catherine¹s and Hamilton and he also played Senior B with Brantford and O¹shweken. In 1967 he led the Brantford Supertests to the President¹s Cup and was named the team¹s M.V.P. that year. He played with or against such Hall of Famers as Ross Powless, Moon Wooten (Charter), Bobby Allan (1974) and Rusty Slater (1998).
