Editor’s note: Please welcome GameChanger (and coach Ryan Moran) to LaxAllStars!

The folks at GC love lacrosse, and we’re pumped to have them on board as our partner. We hope you enjoy their podcast!
Coach Ryan Moran is in his second season as head coach of the UMBC men’s lacrosse team. He started off his coaching career at Navy Prep. From there he moved back to his alma-mater as the offensive coordinator at Maryland to get NCAA experience.
His offense averaged 11 goals / game over his 6 year period. His next move was to Loyola where in 2016 his offense average 12 goals / game. In June of 2016 he took over at UMBC for Coach Zimmerman after 23 years.
Joe Yevoli spoke with Coach Moran two days before their victory over an undefeated and no. 1 ranked, Albany. During the call they talked about how he handled coaching the Navy Prep team by himself. What he learned his first few years at Maryland. And how he’s approaching his new challenge at UMBC.
Here’s Joe’s interview with Coach Ryan Moran!
