Tim Nelson (born c. 1963) was a three-time first-team All-American NCAA lacrosse player at Syracuse University from 1983 to 1985.

Lacrosse Career

Nelson teamed with Brad Kotz to lead the Orange to the NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship in 1983, as well as two additional appearances in the finals in 1984 and 1985.

Nelson is fourth in all-time NCAA Division I total points, with 99 goals and 221 assists for 320 total points in 57 games. He was awarded the Jack Turnbull Award as National Attackman of the Year in 1983, 1984, and 1985.

Nelson began his college career at North Carolina State in 1982, but transferred to Syracuse after the North Carolina State program was cancelled. Nelson played his high school lacrosse at Yorktown High School. He also coached for 15 years at the collegiate level, heading the men's lacrosse programs at Dartmouth from 1989 to 1998 and Utica College from 1999 to 2005.

Nelson is currently the Assistant Vice President of Advancement at Utica College.

Nelson was inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 2012. He was one of four Orange lacrosse players selected by a panel of lacrosse coaches, including Kotz as well as Paul and Gary Gait, to the NCAA Lacrosse Committee's 25th Anniversary Lacrosse Team.
