Bio

Tom attended Walt Whitman HS, where he was a 4 yr. Varsity lacrosse player and a First Team All-County selection as an Attackman. After High School, Tom attended C.W. Post, where he was a four-year starter. In his Senior Year, Tom was selected as a First Team All-American, and was the winner of the Jack Turnbull Award, for Top Attackman in the Country. 

Why I coach Mooselax:

I enjoy growing the game that has given me so much, and sharing and teaching it to the younger generation of athletes. I think I have a good balance of stressing the importance of fair play and competition while remembering that the team is comprised of impressionable young men, and the focus should ultimately remain on having a fun, positive experience. Mooselax is less about making great lacrosse players, and more about shaping fine young men.
