SIX NATIONS – It was only a matter of time for Duane “Dewey” Jacobs, but the Ontario Lacrosse Hall of Fame has announced the induction of the former Six Nations Chief and current Chiefs general manager and coach into the Ontario Lacrosse Hall of Fame.

Although not a big surprise to anyone who has been involved with the upper echelons of lacrosse, the news came as a pleasant surprise to Jacobs himself.
“When I first heard, I was somewhat surprised,” Jacobs told The Expositor. “It took a few days for the news to set in. I’m very happy, very humbled about the induction,” he said.

“I’m joining a long list of great players and builders. To be recognized and honoured like this brings a sense of satisfaction for all the hard work and dedication you put into the game.”

He was inducted into the NLL’s Rochester Knighthawks Hall of Fame earlier this season.

As an assistant captain with the Chiefs, Jacobs helped lead the team to Mann Cups from 1994-96.

He also captured a Presidents Cup with the Kitchener-Waterloo-Kodiaks in 2003.
As a member of the National Lacrosse League’s Rochester Knighthawks from 1995-2002, Jacobs won the Champions Cup in 1997.

Also being inducted this year are GaryCarr – Veteran (St.Catharines), Bob Clevely – Builder (Orangeville), Clinton “Jan” Magee – Player (Peterborough), Dan Teat – Player (Brampton) and Barry Trood – Builder (Caledon/Shelburne).
