I got a chance to sit down with my old coach from UVa, Coach Dom Starsia. His name is definitely one all lacrosse fans will recognize immediately. For me, he’s someone I had the privilege to play under and as I mention int he podcast, some of the lessons I’ve learned from him I still use in my every day life.

Ask someone to sit down and interview their old coach, and it will make anyone nervous. It’s kind of an intimidating task for any player, current or former. Now, make that coach one of, if not, the best lacrosse coaches of all time – and the assignment becomes that much harder.
Coach Starsia is a graduate from Brown, so you know he’s got the smarts – but listen to him talk about pretty much anything and you’ll realize why he’s such a savvy and gifted coach. I was honored that he took the time out of his day to talk with me. His answers are perfect and one that any coach, player, or parent will benefit from hearing!
