The Rochester Press-Radio Club will honor Rochester Knighthawks' Cody Jamieson on Monday night.

Jamieson has led the Knighthawks to a NLL record three straight Champion’s Cup victories, while also teaching kids throughout the United States, Canada and First Nations communities about the game of lacrosse.

Jamieson will receive the Elliott Cushing Award for promoting his sport on a national level. The award is named after the Press-Radio Club's first president, who founded the annual charity dinner in 1950. 

Jamieson becomes the second straight Knighthawks player to win the award, joining Rochester native Joe Walters, who earned one of Press-Radio Club’s prestigious honors in 2013.
