The coach is terrible. Get him outta there and maybe more kids would go there and it would help the school's finances. Nobody want's to play for him. Nasty guy. By having him there it's actually hurting the school's finances too.


Moronic comment. You think the success or failure of the lacrosse team will actually dictate whether more or less students decide to go to Kellenberg? It is already a huge student body with ~650 per grade. They can't fit any more kids in that place. And pls share your wisdom on how the lacrosse coach actually impacts the schools finances. I can't wait to hear these pearls of wisdom.

Oh my, just checked it out.

Not that I am against or for it but if you thought the "little" forearm from Princeton coach was too much you wont like this. (yes a bit different because opposing team)

Wouldn't call it a punch but would call it good either. If you call it a "love tap"... yeah, like my dad loves me but if I talked back to him he slapped me one. and no coaches don't do that anymore.

If I had a nickel for every time my H.S football coach hit me up side the helmet or grabbed my face mask to make sure I understood him I would have about $2.00. The funny thing is it isn't the boys who complain but the wussy helicopter parents.
It amazes me that we had 19 yr. old platoon leaders during WW 2, guys who never left their town before going overseas. We baby the crap out of these kids, but they can take it if you let them. The problem is the parents, let your boys grow up and be men. They will be fine. The umbilical cord was cut a long time ago.

JV lost 18-11 to Anthony's 7-7 late in the 3rd and then turned into a track meet with advantage to SA, I wouldn't call for the death of Kellenberg lax yet. Bad years happen, let's wait and see only 2 years ago they won the AA intersectional.

And you're crazy if ANYONE in the administration besides the AD is is remotely concerned with the success of the athletic teams. School has a waiting list bigger than some other schools enrollment, the president, principal etc. aren't too concerned with lax scores more with the actual SCHOOL part probably which has gotten the school to where it is.

I agree, a lot of truth to what you say. "real life" will be a challenge for the kids without a trust fund!

Let's hope the kid and his parents give their OK on this, there is more than enough woosification of these kids already. It was nothing extraordinary except it was on TV. No harm/ no foul. A love tap, nothing more.

And yet the Chaminade JV football coach got fired for yelling at his players while he was driving the bus.

That's interesting about the coaching. Didn't know that. Have a 7th grader but live in Suffolk. Maybe have to rethink that commute.


No doubt, definitely rethink the commute if in Suffolk, SJB or St A's.


How about SJB? New coach. Seems connected to college coaches. Just a thought. Aren't we all sick of this pre-determined CHSAA Championship game?




Not a great guy! brow beats the kids same personalty as the Kellenberg coach. Has a bad reputation with his LI Rebels. Took money for tournaments and would not give it back when team folded? Had to chase him to get it back.


LOL. Get over it, your kid wasn't good enough. It happens.

Seriously, someone complains the coaches yells at a kid? I feel bad for any HS lax player that has never been yelled at, gets into a college where a coach rides the s%$t out of them without his parents on the sideline to [lacrosse] and moan and second guess about every little thing that happens to their poor Johnny. I'm sure not one of these parents that are constantly complaining has ever tried to corral and get focused 30 15 and 16 year olds for 2 hours after school. Only thing I have ever said to my kids HS lacrosse coach was "thank you" and he "enjoyed the season". And trust me, that coach used to ride the kids like Doc Dougherty in the good olde days.

I have, I coached and I am passionate and loud. I've called out players, I grabbed at many a cage to get a players attention but never ever smacked them in anger upside their head. Wanted to but never did. I coached back in the 90's (when i was young) to very privileged boys. Their parents didn't care so much about the yelling, if it got to much they would have a conversation with me and we were usually on the same page at the end of the conversation (on my side - and that kid was set straight for at least a few weeks). With me it was not out of anger but tutelage and understanding timing, priorities and respect - life lessons.

I was fortunate (or unfortunately) to be put into an environment where a coach did hit a player upside the head. The dad said one thing to the Ad coach and staff...

"...Yell at him all you want, make him run or take time away... you are the coach, but, and let me make this clear... only I can put my hands on my son. Trust me I will take care of it... if it warrants, but you hit my kid and I will take care of you first pointing at the AD then you pointing at the coach. (All situations are different but all the rest of us could do was shake our head and think, the dad is right).


I am now a dad and been around the block. I have learned you don't always need to stay in a situation, if it is not to your liking or standards, just leave. No one needs to be a martyr. Some of our parents stayed in their jobs many miserable as could be, but they were told stay you don't leave. Why, because that was how things were done. Not anymore, life and things change. I believe their is a fine line of this woosification but I also believe we need to use common sense.


As far as the "thank you", just like everything in life, I too say Thank you to the coach, but only when deserved. Thank you's are not to be thrown around lightly. You can tell when a coach is doing it for the love of the game or the pay check. I have been disgusted by some of the coaching and development ive seen. AD's are no better, their lack of "want" to do the right thing and their lack of "passion" to get better has been eye opening. So "thank you's" are only said when deserved. Just like "Good Job", those seem to be handed out like candy, does a player who didn't play in a game get a "good job", NO!

Now the above is just that a situation lapse in a moment in time. This seemed to be a mistake in a heated moment. I am also for forgiveness since we all have our moments (as long as they are few and far between).
