After seeing lacrosse for years on television, Drew first picked up a stick during the summer before 8th grade. He played and coached under Chicago lacrosse legend Rich Martin, making the varsity team at Libertyville High School during his sophomore year. In high school he also had the opportunity to travel and play with the Illinois state team before his senior season, after which he played in the state all-star game.
Drew went on to play in the Centennial Conference, the best in Division III, with the Franklin & Marshall Diplomats. Returning to Chicago, he took up the helm at Lane Tech High School, the first high school team in the city of Chicago. Blessed with young men of talent and dedication, Lane went from being a winless program to a team that scored several upsets of successful suburban programs en route to winning Coach Bogan the Illinois High School Coach of the Year award in 2001. Lane Tech continued to be competitive under Coach Bogan, producing four NCAA lacrosse players and more than a dozen state all-stars during his tenure.
Drew has continued to play lacrosse as well, winning multiple championships in the DILL (a Chicago box lacrosse league) and competing first for Lincoln Park Lacrosse Club and more recently for Windy City Lacrosse Club. He and his wife moved from downtown Chicago to Indianapolis in the summer of 2013, marking the first time in his life Drew has called anywhere but Chicagoland home.
“Lacrosse has blessed me in so many ways. I have made many dear friends in both the playing and the coaching ranks, and I have had the honor and privilege of coaching some fine young men and then watching them grow into adulthood and serve others as coaches, policemen, firemen, soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen, teachers, and more. I have faced obstacles and challenges, enjoyed exhilarating victories and suffered agonizing defeats. I have been inspired by my players, humbled by my competition, and educated by my mentors. Lacrosse has taken me to Chicago’s inner-city alleys, to the mountains of Colorado, to the bayous of Louisiana, and to places all across the country. The opportunities this game has afforded me are too many and too valuable to put into words.”
