    Sean Quirk, Boston Cannons, Endicott College, Peak Pro - Going Offsides

    Episode 19 already? Well it's here and we have a great one for you. Nick and Ryan sit down with 2020 MLL Championship Coach Sean Quirk of the Boston Cannons. Coach Quirk was an absolute pleasure to have and we're sure he’ll end up on the show again in the future.
    The first part of the show addresses college athletics and since Coach Quirk is an assistant AD and former coach at Endicott College, he's able to provide some valuable insight into what the future of college sports may have, and how things are changing quickly.
    Going Offsides with Sean QuirkOur conversation then transitions into pro lacrosse. We talk about the Cannons organization, how the team was built for the bubble season, and what ultimately helped them win the 2020 MLL Championship.
    Lastly, we talk about Coach about his newest project, Peak Pro Sport, a company he helped start to address what he thinks are important needs in the lacrosse market. Affordable equipment and apparel that doesn’t sacrifice quality. Be sure to check out our contest on Instagram that includes following @peakpro! Thanks to the generosity of Coach Quirk for hooking it up.
    Last WeekIn Episode 18 we spoke about how fall ball looks differently this year thanks to the BIG C, COVID. We also spoke with Penn College’s head coach Jordan Williams, who has the unenviable task of building a first year NCAA program and starting his recruiting from ground zero in a year where in person recruiting has been severely limited.
    Next WeekEpisode 20 and 21 combine for a two-parter based in Florida. Episode 20 chats with Marty Ward, who has built a tremendous program and an emerging D2 power at Florida Southern. Episode 21connects with Dan Soviero, founder and face of Signature lacrosse.

    Jordan Williams, Penn College - Going Offsides

    Jordan Williams, Penn College - Going Offsides

    Episode 18 is here, and the guys are discussing fall ball and recruiting. As everyone knows we’ve been dealing with what seems to be the most unique time we will hopefully ever see. With Covid affecting every part of our lives, its also had an affect on the college lacrosse fall season and continues to affect the recruiting landscape.
    After a brief discussion between Nick and Ryan, they speak with Jordan Williams the newly appointed head coach at the Pennsylvania College of Technology. Coach Williams speaks about having his first ever season at a brand new NCAA D3 program during a pandemic. He speaks about the uniqueness of recruiting, transitioning a club program to D3, and gives a fantastic plug for why anyone should consider attending Penn College.
    Coach Williams has a rich history in lacrosse. Aside from a summer rooming with Nick coaching summer travel ball, he was an outstanding player at Aurora University. His coaching career started as a graduate assistant at Lourdes University, followed by a one year stop at Chatham before moving to Delaware, OH and helping D3 power Ohio Wesleyan. This will be Jordan’s first chance to run his own program and I for one know he is up for the challenge.
    Last Week:
     In episode 17 we spoke with Rachel Vallarelli about her career as a field goal and her more recent transition to being an NLL prospect. She is carrying the flag for female box players. Listen to that episode here: Ep.17 Rachel Vallarelli

    Rachel Vallarelli, Women in Box Lacrosse - Going Offsides

    Rachel Vallarelli, Women in Box Lacrosse - Going Offsides

    We’re back, even though we never left we did take a break from our normal episode format during lacrosse’s down time to shed light on some promising international programs.
    This week we sit down with stud goalie Rachel Vallarelli. Who is Rachel and why should you care? Rachel was a three year starter at UMASS where she had a ridiculous 48 victories with an astonishing 6.77 GAA and in 2015 she was the Atlantic 10 defensive player of the year. That’s what she did, but what is she doing now? She recently became one of the more promising goalie prospects in the box lacrosse world, securing a trip to the NLL combine and competing at a New York Riptide tryout. Rachel is proving herself to not only be an adequate box goalie, but one to look out for.
    In addition to her career aspirations in the NLL, Rachel is the driving force behind RV Lax, a company she runs that provides camps, clinics, and lessons for younger lacrosse players. If you’re interested in working with Rachel and her fantastic guest clinicians please visit http://rachelvallarellilacrosse.leagueapps.com/ for more information, you wont regret it. When not giving lessons, working clinics, or playing Rachel is the womens director of Team 91 Tristate and an assistant coach at Purchase College.
    In this weeks episode we look deeper at Rachel’s path from stud basketball player to the lacrosse field, from a phenomenal field career, to an unrelenting desire to play professional box. We find out what drives Rachel in her pursuits, along with some light hearted things like her favorite cartoons, food spots, and how she used a goalie stick with traditional stringing….
    Next week on the show we sit down and discuss what fall ball looks like, and bring in Jordan Williams (Head Men’s Coach at Pennsylvania College of Technology) to see what its been like to have your programs inaugural year during Covid.
