What I most enjoy most about coaching lacrosse is ... the opportunity to make a positive impact in the athlete’s enjoyment of the sport; watching how each player improves and motivating them to come together to form a team first attitude.

BBL classes differ from our rivals' classes because ... teaching methods and training exercises are unique. Focus is on creating a positive experience, establishing a strong fundamental base that allows for advanced skill development.

Lacrosse is a great sport because ... it’s a wonderful combination of speed, skill and toughness.

Something interesting or funny you didn't know about me is ... I once owned a Corvette; fast and fun to drive.

When I am not coaching lacrosse, I like to ... enjoy my family and friends; be on an ocean beach.

The proudest moment of my life was ... when my son and daughter were born. Grew up with four brothers, have three nephews, my son was born first - it was very exciting to have a girl!

Did you know that I once ... survived a rough landing while hot air ballooning in California.
