Notes: Excerpt from www.usalacrosse.org: Jack Turnbull has been called the "Babe Ruth" of lacrosse, and few, if any, could equal his playing ability. On April 19, 1937, in the press, Kid Norris stated, "Jack Turnbull is the finest player I've ever seen or played with." Billy Shriver, radio commentator, said in 1947, "Jack Turnbull is what I call the complete athlete. By that I mean when he played a game, he gave it everything he had - spiritually, mentally, physically. Although he was an individual standout, he was always the team player, always playing for the best interests of the sport." He was a four-time captain of lacrosse teams - Poly, 1926; Hopkins, 1932; U.S. Olympic Team, 1932 and Mt. Washington Club, 1934. He earned his Bachelor's Degree in Engineering at Hopkins in three years and was three times "All American."
