Prior to joining the order, his name was Almer Cooney, but to all his lacrosse followers he was known as Brother Damien.
He insisted that lacrosse be part of St. Johns Training School where he operated a house league for '0 years in addition to fielding two or three teams in the Ontario Lacrosse Association.
He will long be remembered for his motto: "It's not the games you win or loose, but how you play the game."
