Which players have the most boys’ high school lacrosse career assists?
The high school lacrosse players on the list below are some of the whos-who in the history of boys’ lacrosse. From Casey Powell and Mike Powell to Tim and Tom Nelson, the following is a list of high school athletes who tallied a minimum of 200 assists in their career.
Players are added to this list upon completion of the respective spring seasons. This list is expected to be incomplete as not all states and teams report statistics. I am publishing an incomplete list now in hopes of participation from our readers. Records will be added as we receive them.
The minimum for inclusion on this list is 200 career assists. Some states have a lower threshold for inclusion on the state best-known records.
To submit a performance to the national records list, have the head coach or an official team statistician e-mail information to Mike Loveday via one of the submission forms below.

What I Do
LaxRecords.com aims to compile the best-known records in high school lacrosse. Among the lists are the most career wins by a high school lacrosse coach. Also included are most career points, goals, assists and saves by a high school lacrosse player. Team performances for most state-sanctioned championships and consecutive wins are also tracked.
Some records are incomplete. I solicit help from the lacrosse community to fill the missing gaps. If there is a performance or player missing, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a Tweet at @LaxRecords.
According to US Lacrosse, lacrosse is the fastest-growing sport in the nation. Just under 300,000 players competed on varsity, junior varsity, freshman and club teams. According to the National Federation of State High School Associations, from 2009 to 2014, a total of 551 schools added boys’ programs, resulting in a growth rate of 27.8 percent for boys’ lacrosse. US Lacrosse produces a participation report annually since 2001, and over that time span, the number of players has grown 204 percent, from 253,901 to 772,772. This survey counts only play on organized teams and does not count leisure-time play of the sport.
