Today on the show we have the associate head coach of Denver Lacrosse, Matt Brown.
Coach Brown graduated from Denver University where he was a four-year starter for the Pioneers. During his time at DU he accumulated 137 points – that’s the sixth-best in Pioneer history. He’s also fourth all-time for goals.
Coach Brown started as a volunteer assistant coach in 2007. After three seasons under the former coaching staff he was asked to join on as an assistant coach when Coach Tierney arrived. During his time at DU the Pioneers have reached Championship weekend five times and won the national championship in 2015, the first ever in the history of the program. In eight seasons his offense has been consistently ranked in the top 10 in the nation, ranking as high as No. 3.
He was an assistant coach for the Canadian National team and the offensive coordinator for the Under-19 Canadian Men’s Field team. He’s also the director of the Denver Elite Box Lacrosse program and a founding member of USBoxLA.
Matt Brown: GameChanger
Coach Brown and I got a chance to talk about a lot of different things, like how he ended up at Denver, learning from other sports, viewing sports as a puzzle, read progressions, making decisions while playing fast, and much more.
