I got a heads up from one of our excellent readers and did a quick check and it’s all true. Legendary laxer, Casey Powell, will take over the reins of the St. Andrew’s Boys’ Lacrosse Team in Boca Raton, FL. He takes over the best program in the South from Jeff Goldberg, who ran the program at the highest levels for almost 2 decades. Powell brings that instant credibility factor where the kids will all respect him immediately. Even the most involved parents will have to stand back and let Casey run the show because for a long time, he was lacrosse.
At only 34 years old, he could keep St. Andrew’s at the top for a long time but that of course begs the question, can he coach? I’ll offer up an emphatic yes right away even though he won’t take over right away. There will be an interim head coach for at least this season as Casey will still be playing for the Boston Blazers in the NLL. Back to what could be… Casey Powell loves lacrosse and he loves building quality relationships with people. Those two character traits combined with a lacrosse IQ that rivals anyone ever and a school with all of the resources in the world will result in more wins and more State Championships. Can’t wait to see these guys play the Hill Academy led by Brodie Merrill… Hey Casey, first act as the Chief Director of Sweet Lax Operations? Let’s get that on the schedule.
