The weak links just HAD to get high. No thought of their reputation, their team, their families or their future. So pathetic. So long.

Definitely not the kids fault and definitely not the parents fault. That leaves the coach and school.

You walk a fine line these days when you are a coach.

But like in every level of the game. The buck stops with the HC. Always has and always will. The team wins he takes the pat on the back. The team loses he takes the heat. The kids get in trouble on or off the field during his season it is his to deal with good or bad and take the consequences. You can just imaging the speech he gave to the kids before the season " this is my team my rules what I say goes you are mine until the end of this season you will do what I say or else. WELL IT IS TIME OR ELSE


They should have said coach chew out that school's varsity lacrosse team this year. They look like they could use some "motivation."


(Meaning C -- because they suck -- not GC)

The coach should not be fired. Stop blaming other people for the actions of kids. Coach is not their parent. He can only do so much. Yet again we are a society that blames everyone else for the actions of our kids rather than take responsibility ourselves. The kids screwed up and they know it and so do their parents.

As for the performance of the team: How in the world can you blame the coach for everything? He plays the best competition regardless of what players he has, he ducks no one. FYI his teams always perform well. For all you parents who never played a D1 sport please listen to me. The coaches coach their system and what they think will work. If your kid doesnt play the way he tells him he will ride the bench. College coaches dont care if you were an All American in High School. Its his job on the line with wins and losses. Why am I bringing this up. Your coach prepares these kids for college ball better than any coach I have seen. Does he run a slow it down offense that is a bit boring to watch absolutely. If they let him go there will be a huge line of schools wanting his services. This guy places more kids in colleges than any high school coach.

Syosset 3-6 L
Smithtown West 6-8 L
Massapequa 8-10 L
St. Pauls 7-6 W
Bellevue WA 5-4 W
Bridgewater-Raritan 6-9 L

Thats a pretty demanding schedule. They have yet to play a conference game.


Well stated and thanks!

Let's not throw around words like devastating unless your talking about something like death or cancer. This is the perfect time for a life lesson. Hopefully ALL involved learn from it and move on.

Sure.... Why hasn't he left for the lucrative college ranks of coaching yet? there must have been countless offers, right? right?

If they let him go, the only thing huge will be the huge sigh of relief from the entire town

Do you understand or know anything about the game of lacrosse. He plays a big school schedule versus teams that have double to triple your enrollment and versus private schools that recruit. He always challenges the players with a tough schedule. He places more kids than any public school into elite college programs. His body of work is in a league all its own. Ask the parents who he has tirelessly called colleges for. You probably don't know any of this. Your the festering wound of a parent on the sideline brooding over playing time. You are a coaches nightmare. Rather than see all the good you try and knock the coach. He can only do so much. Raising kids is on the parents noto the coach. A coach tries to develop players, make them achieve their full potential on the field and even off.

Maybe 1 or 2 parents dont like the HC..You know why..Because the parents think their little angel is a good lax player when he really suks and sits on the bench...Please stop going after the HC and worry about your own family. Im sure you are one of the parents that say their kid never did anything wrong and put the blame on other people because you are a crappy parent....Maybe if you stop babying your kid he will go to a good college and get a good job one day...You babying him will only lead to him back to his HS bedroom after college living with YOU. I know what you guys can do...you can drink beers together watching lax on TV saying that shouldve been my son on TV but my coach never played my son because he didnt know what he was doing...BLAH BLAH BLAH..Stop the crying and deal that your son stinks...If you dont like HS lax go to a club team..The coach will blow you and your son because he is getting PAID

Kids were missing from team dinner? No one went to look for them. Because they missed team dinner which I am assuming was mandatory would he have sat them out of game or at least for a half. Probably not.



Looks as a moderator we can see who is posting. Your the same person posting all the negative stuff. How is the coach to blame for the kids smoking pot. He didn't force them, he didn't buy it. He in no way condoned it. What the [lacrosse] are you smoking. They were missing after they got caught. They got caught at 4pm.

Just a coward behind a keyboard with their own toxic agenda. Thank you again America's Game for replying with some very positive responses about the HC. We are behind him and his coaching staff 100% and will be there this afternoon to cheer the boys on against Carey!! GO GC!
