What I most enjoy most about coaching lacrosse is ... Teaching to the life lessons associated with any sport, commitment, hard work, leadership. That and teaching kids how to throw back brain slaps and butt digs.

BBL classes differ from our rivals’ classes because ... As a veteran coach, I think the most exciting thing about BBL is the non traditional approach to the game. I think the coaching pedagogy at these clinics is cutting edge, and I’m excited to be a part of it.

Lacrosse is a great sport because ... There is no single type of lacrosse player, or single way to play the game. Players who are built like gazelles can excel at lacrosse as well as all body types. Teams can slow it down and play keep away, or they can put the pedal to the metal and run all game.

Something interesting or funny you didn’t know about me is ... I imagine anyone reading this does not know a lot about me, so most of it should be pretty new.

When I am not coaching lacrosse, I like to ... Cook and eat.

The proudest moment of my life was ... The birth of my son, Owen.

Did you know that I once ... Read all 21 volumes of the Aubrey Matturin novels in a year.
