Chris is an incredibly valuable member of the Footscray Lacrosse Club, having coached many junior teams in recent years. His work ethic and discipline provide an excellent role model to all of the junior players at Footscray.
The O. C. Isaachsen Trophy (men) is awarded to the Fairest and Best Player Australia-wide in the most senior men’s State competitions home and away qualifying round matches, based on votes awarded by match umpires.
The trophy was donated by Cedric Isaachsen to the Australian Lacrosse Council (ALC) in 1963. He was a remarkable man who had a distinguished military career, rising to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and earning the honour of Companion of the Distinguished Service Order (DSO), followed by a distinguished legal career. Mr. Isaachsen was President of ALC 1962-65, then Vice-President for 14 years until 1979. He was elected as a Fellow of the ALC in 1994. He lived in South Australia and died in 2009, aged 97 years.
