I do remember Manhasset having 6 loses before making a run to the state championship last year. Same idiots were calling out the town's coaches, players, parents, blah, blah, blah.

The coach is extremely negative and not a "builder" of men. Played various sports my whole life (including D1 lax) and have been coached by all kinds. it is not an easy job but the bottom line is the best coaches bring out the best in their teams. GC HC is verbally abusive at times and his players are scared to make a mistake. the team plays tight because of this. We all know you play better when you are allowed to take chances. How many transition goals have they scored this year?Not many. The vast majority of his ex players are not fans. I think that says something - they cant all be wrong. He also runs the youth program which is a conflict of interest since he is lining his pockets with a sub par product. Fro those that live in town- you know what i am talking about. for those that dont you will be critical- bottom line is that he is not a "good guy" , a person you want developing your child.

Played for G.C. In the late seventies and I can't believe that the current Coach could be half as abusive as Doc was. Abusive both physically and mentally. He did whatever he wanted including having his son " adopted " by a family so he can attend the High School and play for his Dad. I think the difference was that the players that I played with were tougher mentally and our parents were not involved at all. There was no nonsense as far as playing time, the better players played. To the poster who commented about his 2M dollar home , you should take a ride up to the North Shore and look at some of the neighborhoods you might realize that G.C. Isn't all that. FYI not much pot smoking in my day but we drank ours asses off ! At the time it was a great place to grow up. Nothing but great memories.

If you dont like the program go play on a travel team where they take your money and dont care who you are. All your comments are telling me is that your son is not a very good lax player. HC is a great guy,I played with him in HS and he is a great teacher, coach and family man in my opinion.

Does the AD and administration know that GC head coach runs the youth program and how much money he is making on that?

This goes on in most varsity sports in GC. It's rampant in football baseball and lax on the boys side for just the reasons said here. On the girls side it exists too but Instead of the father/son thing it's the sister and field hockey favorites thing. Its out of control.

Like everything else in life, it's not what you know, it's who you know. Why would it be any different here or at any other high school for that matter. Wake up and accept it for what it is. It's never going to change.

Thay are deluded into loving their land locked measured in feet plots in GC (East Queens). Granted there are a few very nice streets that give GC its rep as a "rich town" and after that the overwhelming majority is like any other cookie cutter nassau town.

The last 30 pages of this thread are nothing more than a classic example of
Schadenfreude: revelling n the GC program's misfortune.

And, as for "cookie cutter" -- well, you Suffolk folks forget that GC is the rare combination of superior athletics AND academics, not one or the other. And, I'll take my cookie cutter if it means I don't need to look at someone's boat or commercial vehicle parked next to my driveway all day. And, that 37 minute commute to Penn isn't bad either.
