The Bandits have assembled a solid and stable core of long-term members, who have played a key role in leading the team to a total of four National Lacrosse League titles and nine Eastern Division trophies. Nine of the team’s players and personnel, including two of its head coaches and a general manager, have been inducted into the National Lacrosse League Hall of Fame over the years.
