CH will keep winning until someone catches up with them. BL boarding is BL saying, we are coming. That its for international students is a joke. McD has boarders and will start using it more in future to get out of state talent. Right now, its limited boarding isnt.

Us Lacrosse Magazine has a good article on CH lacrosse in the March and digital issue:

https://www.uslaxmagazine.com/high-...rt-hall-set-a-new-standard-of-excellence

There are good insights into the programs character, leadership, values, and discipline-

“The thing we do better than anywhere I’ve seen is our seniors run the show,” Cardinals assistant Joel Tinney says. “Some places, freshmen carry the balls, but not here. Our seniors are the last ones getting the balls, and they’re making sure everyone is in line. Rarely at a Calvert Hall practice do you see a coach get upset or call out a player because a senior is doing it before that.”

“It starts with leadership,” said Team USA coach Nick Myers, who has established a similar pipeline of Calvert Hall products to Ohio State, where he’s in his 12th season as the coach. “You have to start with Bryan and what he’s done.”

“What stands out about their team has always been their toughness,” says Brodie Merrill, the director of lacrosse at The Hill Academy. “They play a blue collar, ultra aggressive and physical style, not just compared to the MIAA, but all the teams that we play.”

Calvert Hall never discusses its past championships. After every practice, Kelly also tells his players that lacrosse is what you do. It’s not who you are.

Kelly got involved with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. At an Athletes in Action meeting, he heard evangelist Billy Graham say a coach can have more of an influence than a parent.

“I realized that’s what I wanted to do,” Kelly says. “I want to have an impact on these kids. I look at Calvert Hall coaching as my ministry.”

“He cares a lot about lacrosse, and it’s a big part of his life, but he is focused on much more than that,” says Syracuse midfielder Brendan Curry (CHC ’17). “That’s a way he gains trust in us. We know he has our best interests first, even before lacrosse.”





Good Lord we get it already... Not only did you share this a million times on your facebook feeds we now have to see it here.... US lacrosse will write a great article about you as well if you donate tons of money to them like the Calvert Hall Kelly's..... Go Away you blowhards



I can't wait for you to see next month Inside Lacrosse Magazine issue...

While all that sounds great, and parts may be true. Have you ever seen one article critical of anyone that carries any weight in US lax mag. It is generally is a slobber-feast .

Hard hitting stories they arent. My take is that they are doing a great job at CH making it a winning program. But it sure isnt Mother Teresa leading lacrosse players there. No one stays at the top of anything if you act like a choir boy.

You better get them this year because Catonsville will make a deep run this year and then 2 straight State Championships. 2022 Class is the best in Maryland Public or Private.

I've talked to many parents who have been involved with Kelly and FCA. If you are "his guy" he is great. He will call and check up on the kid, help with medical referrals, etc.

But, once he decides you aren't "his guy" he will find someone else and lie about it as needed. He has built an incredible powerhouse at CHC, but the holier than though persona is bull.

They ran through the rest of the teams at the fall event judging by tourney machine.


Does beating Catonsville by one goal qualify as "running through" that team?


Yes, Does that clear things up with you ? Anything else I can help you with ?

Catonsville fan here. Quoted post smacks of trolling. Too many superlatives. Always best to save the crowing 'til after the achievement.

Poor guy, It is tough to take, Give your senior a Pom Pom and have him cheer his teammates on. That will get him some playing time in blowouts.
