Whether justified or not, he has definitely rubbed some people the wrong way. Obviously, there are two sides to each LE story, but you have to imagine that some of the negative comments are legitimate, and some just sour grapes. The real question is whether he can succeed without the ability to recruit the players that he wants. The player pool is limited to the borders of Chatham, unlike LE, or schools like Delbarton and SHP, that pull in top players consistently.. That is not meant to be a knock on the Chatham program, just the reality of the situation. Perhaps if he can convince those kids that leave Chatham to go to private schools for lacrosse to stay, that may be a positive.
