There’s nothing fancy about Greg Harnett and that’s pretty much just the way he wants it. In Harnett’s eyes, fancy doesn’t cut it. He just wants to win lacrosse games, no matter where he’s playing, and the easiest way to do that is by working hard.

So yes, it’s a bit ironic in that working hard is the easiest way to get there, but if you’ve seen this left-handed defenseman play in Calgary with the NLL or Victoria with the WLA, you understand quite well what Harnett is all about. You also understand why he’s on our Top 50 list for the first time.

Before Calgary and before Victoria, there was Orangeville. One of the game’s hotbeds, for sure, and Harnett was a big part of Minto Cup winning teams in 2008 and 2009. Hard-nosed and gritty, Harnett also brings a versatile game. He’ll mix it up, he’ll get the transition game going, he’ll lead by example or he’ll jaw back and forth with any forward who feels like running his mouth.

With 4 full National Lacrosse League seasons under his belt, all with the Calgary Roughnecks, along with 4 full Western Lacrosse Association seasons with the Victoria Shamrocks, Harnett’s more than shown he can hold his own with whatever the game brings.
