Zack Greer (born February 12, 1986 in Whitby, Ontario) is a Canadian professional lacrosse player who plays for the Denver Outlaws in Major League Lacrosse and the Colorado Mammoth of the National Lacrosse League. Greer attended high school at All Saints Catholic Secondary School in Whitby, and grew up playing box lacrosse. Greer's brother, Bill, plays for the Toronto Rock in the National Lacrosse League. Greer's cousin Shawn Thornton plays for the Florida Panthers in the National Hockey League.
Greer played junior box lacrosse with the Whitby Warriors of the OLA Junior A Lacrosse League. In 2003, he was awarded the "Joey Nieuwendyk Award" for Rookie of the Year. He was also awarded the "Dean McLeod Award" for Playoffs M.V.P in 2004.
In 2006, Zack Greer and his teammate Matt Danowski led the Duke Blue Devils high powered attack to the 2007 NCAA Final Four. Duke faced Johns Hopkins University in the final, only to lose after mounting a strong comeback at the end of the game. In 2008, Greer led Division I in goals scored, helping to lead Duke to the Final Four once again. However, Duke fell short, losing to Johns Hopkins in the semi-finals.
Greer was a four-time All-American including two times on the first team at Duke, who holds the all-time Duke  and NCAA lacrosse goals record. Following the 2008 season, Greer was awarded the Jack Turnbull Award given to the USILA Attackman of the year.
Resulting from "unusual circumstance," the NCAA granted 33 Duke Lacrosse players, including Greer, a rare fifth year of eligibility. which was granted to many players of the Duke lacrosse team in return for their season being cancelled in 2006 because of the Duke University lacrosse team scandal
Greer used his fifth year of eligibility to pursue a graduate business degree at Bryant University in the fall of 2008 where he played under former Duke head coach, Mike Pressler. In 2009, Bryant University, a former Division II school, played Division I college lacrosse for the first time. At the end of Bryant's 2009 NCAA Division 1 Season, Greer netted 42 Goals and 26 Assists combining for 68 points. Since Bryant was transitioning to Division I that season, Greer's statistics for 2009 do not count toward official NCAA Division I records. 
The Long Island Lizards traded Greer in the 2012-2013 offseason to the Denver Outlaws in exchange for Midfielder Collin Briggs.
