George Burrows

George Burrows’s lacrosse playing days spanned the field and box eras. Born in 1918, Burrows, a goaltender, played his first lacrosse game in Brampton, Ontario in 1926 and his last game for the Senior Brampton Excelsiors in 1947.

Between the end of WWII, in which he served in the RCAF, and 1965 he helped launch the Lakeshore Minor League and served as a Minor and OLA referee.

A life member of the Brampton Excelsior Lacrosse Club, Burrows has been honoured for his dedication to lacrosse by the City of Brampton, the NLL’s Toronto Rock, the Brampton Sports Hall of Fame and the Ontario Lacrosse Hall of Fame.
