Why I coach Mooselax:
The sport of lacrosse has done so much for me in my life, and to be able to give back and pass on my love for the game to the players in “the Herd” is incredibly rewarding. Mooselax provides it’s athletes the best of both worlds… with coaching that goes beyond the field. I am thankful for the opportunity to coach and be part of a program that always keeps the focus on the kids.
