Randy Staats

Staats put up impressive numbers in his first two years at OCC, racking up 139 and 156 total points in 2012 and 2013, respectively and subsequently earning first-team All-American honors both years. OCC head coach Chuck Wilbur, who sent the likes of lacrosse stars Jeremy Thompson and Cody Jamieson to Division I programs over the years, was instrumental in helping Staats rehabilitate and gain confidence, ultimately leading to his enrollment at Syracuse University in the spring of 2014. 

Staats graduated from Syracuse in 2015 after a two-year career with the Orange. Playing alongside current Blaze teammates Dylan Donahue and Kevin Rice, Staats appeared in 27 games, and ended his career with 109 points on 62 goals and 47 points. In addition to his impressive scoring numbers, Staats was named a Tewaaraton nominee for the 2014 season and concluded his Syracuse career in 2015 with Honorable Mention All-Honors. 

In addition to his collegiate success, Staats made steady strides to cement himself as a key member of the Iroquois indoor and outdoor national teams. After helping the outdoor team to a 2014 FIL World Championship bronze medal, he was the second leading scorer for the gold medal winning Iroquois team at the 2015 World Indoor Lacrosse Championships.
