What I enjoy most about coaching lacrosse is ... developing players’ individual skills and understanding of the game, then bringing players together and creating a team of these individuals.

BBL classes differ from our rivals’ classes because ... they are structured to take a player from his or her current level and advancing them to the next level and beyond. Players can improve in the system as far they want to take their games.

Lacrosse is a great sport because ... there is room for all types of players – big, small and in between, as long as you love it and want to work. Also, more than any other team sport, lacrosse is a community.

Something interesting or funny you didn’t know about me is ... I was a seventh-grade science teacher in Maplewood for several years when I got out of college.

When I am not coaching lacrosse, I like to ... hang with my kids, go to the beach with my wife, play golf.

Did you know that I once ... was rescued by the Coast Guard when my buddy’s boat capsized off the Florida coast.
