More than any other sport, professional lacrosse players play a pivotal role in the health of their game by passing on their knowledge through coaching. MLL Press Box will highlight the current players in MLL who are carrying on that coaching legacy at the collegiate and high school levels in the Coaches Corner.
Lehigh - Kevin Massa, Assistant Coach
The Mountain Hawks toppled No. 13 Princeton, 15-10, on Tuesday after scoring 10 of the first 11 goals of the game. Massa (Charlotte Hounds) and his Lehigh club improved to 6-5 on the season and 4-1 at home. They face Cornell this Saturday before closing out the regular season against Bucknell next week.
Skidmore - John Maloney, Assistant Coach
The Skidmore men (6-5) surrendered an overtime goal to Union in a 10-9 loss on Wednesday. It was the second straight loss for John Maloney (Chesapeake Bayhawks) and the Thoroughbreds after reeling off five straight wins prior. They'll look to rebound on Saturday against RPI.
Duke - Matt Danowski, Assistant Coach
After back-to-back wins against North Carolina and No. 3 Notre Dame, the No. 8 Blue Devils will host ACC foe Virginia this Saturday in their regular season finale. They are 9-3 overall and have won seven of their last eight games.
Hofstra - Kevin Unterstein, Associate Head Coach
The last unbeaten team in Division I, Hofstra (10-0) beat Delaware last weekend by a score of 11-9. They will have to get past Drexel, UMass and Towson if they want to finish the regular season with a perfect record. The Pride and Unterstein (New York Lizards) will look to pass on their positive mojo at James M. Shuart Stadium to the Lizards, who open at home on Apr. 29.
