Wittig Wins 2019 Mammoth Fan Choice Award


Colorado Mammoth fans voted, and Jeff Wittig won the 2019 Fan Choice Award.

The Mammoth rookie made his mark on the turf in the 2018-19 regular season as a fearless, physical and, yes, sometimes downright "dirty" scorer.

The Mammoth signed the 21-year-old as a free agent in September 2018. After Mammoth training camp, Wittig joined the team as a practice player, at first. His debut on the active roster finally came on March 9: Colorado Night. In his first career game, Wittig tallied two goals against the San Diego Seals and added two helpers for a total of four points.

In eight games played in 2018-19, the left-handed forward scored eight goals, most of them highlight-reel worthy, and added 13 assists for a total of 21 points.

“His energy was relentless and never ending,” said Mammoth play-by-play analyst Teddy Jenner. “He came in like a meteor. His pure passion for the game made him an instant Mammoth fan-favorite.” 

Before Wittig became a professional box lacrosse player, the St. Catharines, ON native spent five seasons starring on the St. Catharines Athletics Junior A club. Two of Wittig’s Mammoth teammates, Dan Coates and Ian Llord, are also former A’s.

This summer season, Wittig is a forward for the Brooklin Redmen, a Major Series Lacrosse club.
