DENVER — The National Lacrosse League (NLL) has announced 20 nominees for the NLL Hall of Fame Class of 2021.

Among the nominees are four representatives from the Colorado Mammoth: John Grant Jr., Shawn Williams, Casey Powell and Steve Toll.

Grant Jr., Powell and Toll each played for the Mammoth in their storied careers. Williams is the current Mammoth Offensive Coordinator.

The Mammoth and NLL plan to celebrate the individuals selected for enshrinement this fall and during the 2021-22 NLL season.

“This is indeed an impressive selection of candidates whose contributions to lacrosse and the NLL span several eras and the breadth of North America,” said NLL Commissioner Nick Sakiewicz. “We are honored to be continuing the tradition of honoring the greats and we look forward to selecting the next inductees for the most prestigious individual honor in our sport.”
