SIMCOE – Cole Jamieson, the brother of Rochester Knighthawks star Cody Jamieson, earned another championship for his Six Nations’ family. Cole captured the Simcoe Ontario Provincial Championship Monday night with his dad in the Pit Crew and his lacrosse-playing brother in his cheering section.
“It feels great to see him win. I see the hard work and late hours he puts in building these cars, and the time away from his family all night,” said Cody. “I probably feel as good as when he does seeing me win. We are close brothers, and we love seeing each other happy.”
Cole’s victory capped off an incredible year for the Jamieson family. In September, Cody Jamieson became the second player in team history to win the National Lacrosse League’s Most Valuable Player Award. Jamieson, who was also named a First Team All-Pro, also won the 2014 NLL scoring title with 108 points.
The fourth-year pro helped lead the Knighthawks to the top of the East Division and second in the NLL with a 14-4 overall record. The Rochester assistant captain also captured the second Team MVP Award of his career.
For the third straight postseason, Jamieson led the Knighthawks in playoff points, finishing second in the league with 22. In the NLL Champion’s Cup series, he scored four goals and added five assists in three games as Rochester became the first team to three-peat in NLL history. Jamieson, 27, also won his second straight Mann Cup with the Six Nations Chiefs in early September, leading all players with 26 points (12+14) in six games.
On Monday, Cole joined his younger brother by raising a championship Cup. Cole held off Simcoe’s Soren Coulson and Ottawa’s Ron Boyer to capture the 2014 Williams Cup. Jamieson advanced to the finals after finishing second in his heat at the event held at the Norfolk County Fair.
