Max Quinzani (born March 20, 1988) of Duxbury, Massachusetts is an MLL professional lacrosse player, formerly of the NCAA Division I college lacrosse team in Duke University. Quinzani played attack at 5'8 and 170 pounds in his collegiate career but has since put on weight and now lists his height at a more accurate 5'2.

Career[edit]

He was an outstanding Attack player during all his five years with Duke. He has the nation’s longest scoring streak at 46 games, ranks sixth on the Duke career list for goals, and received the ACC Academic Honor Roll choice and a two-time Academic All-America selection. On May 31, 2010, Max and the Duke Lacrosse team won their first ever Division I NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship. During his collegiate career, Quinzani scored 131 goals and 154 points. In 2010, Quinzani was chosen third overall by the Boston Cannons in the 2010 MLL Draft. Max played his first professional game on Saturday, June 12, 2010 . He also scored a hat-trick that first game. Former Duxbury High School teammates Chris Ajemian, Chris Nixon and Kevin Gould were also selected by the Boston Cannons in the Draft. Quinzani has since been cut by the Long Island Lizards.

Quinzani's two brothers also play college lacrosse withe Gus Quinzani playing his ball at St. Joes and Wes Quinzani who will be playing at Middlebury College in Vermont. Quinzani also famously scored the go ahead goal for the Cannons with seconds left in the 2011 MLL Semifinal. He was unable to produce points in the Final despite a winning outcome for his team. Quinzani has also devoted much of his time to his support group "Gluten-Free Anonymous," organizing citywide events such as the "Boot'n Rally Gluten Rally."

Quinzani was a four-year letterman at Duxbury under coach Chris Sweet, where his team won state championships in 2004, 2005 and 2006.
