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-19 affecting every part of our lives, it’s 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 shed lights on the uniqueness of recruiting, transitioning a club program to D3, and gives a fantastic plug for why any student-athlete should consider attending Penn College.
Going Offsides with Jordan Williams
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.
In Episode 17 we spoke with Rachel Vallarelli about her career as a field goalie and her more recent transition to being an NLL prospect. She is carrying the flag for female box players.
What do you want to hear about next week? We have a lot of guests lined up, but that doesn’t matter if we’re not talking about what you want to hear.
Join us this fall as we take a deep dive into international lacrosse and what lacrosse looks like in countries all over the world. Later this fall we will look at domestic box teams and educate ourselves about the opportunities that exist in the game.
