This past season, 5 players were honored with post season awards and recognition for their work in LSA conference play. Defenders Kenny Callis (#7) and Ryan Leinenger (#20), and attackmen Alex Edens (#9) and Ayham Duwaji (#25) made the All-Conference 3rd team. Senior goalkeeper Erik Gollhofer lead the entire country with over 300 saves to earn himself All-Conference Honorable Mention.
In 1997, Rick Foerster, a transfer student from Texas A&M, founded the team. The first year of North Texas Lacrosse had only ten players and only five had any experience playing lacrosse. After getting the help of veteran lacrosse coach Karl Lynch, the team has made strides to being a competitive member of the Lone Star Alliance.
In the spring of 2005, the Mean Green made the playoffs for the first time, beginning a string of playoff appearances and shifting the attitude and expectations of each ensuing team. In 2007, North Texas reached the Lone Star Alliance Semifinals for the first time and repeated in 2008. The 2009 season proved to be the Mean Green's most successful as the team clinched the top spot in the LSA-North and reached the league championship game for the first time in their history.
