Favorite Moment in the Game:
My favorite moment in lacrosse both as a player and a coach is when everything clicks. To be on the field and to have everyone understand what’s happening and to have that translate into a play in the game is such a great feeling! As a coach, when the players finally understand what you have been coaching them up to do, and they do it without you asking, is an amazing opportunity as well. To see them get so excited about an accomplish is rewarding!
I currently live in Nashua NH and when I am not coaching or playing lacrosse, I love spending my free time out on the boat at our lake house in Maine!
