Rob grew up in Mountain Lakes New Jersey, a small town hotbed of lacrosse, where the sport’s popularity is unrivaled even by a successful football program.  He was a 4 sport varsity athlete but always loved lacrosse most.  Coached by Tim Flynn (Head Coach of the 2012 U19 American Team – World Champions), Rob forever learned the fundamentals of lacrosse and multi-sport defensive principles.

Rob developed into a two-year letter winner and one-year starter at Mountain Lakes, playing long stick defense.  Deciding to pursue an undergraduate business degree, Rob came to Indiana University.  At IU, Rob moved to the Short Stick Midfield position and earned a starting role his freshman year as the team’s face-off specialist.

Coaching Philosophy
Lacrosse is a game where kids of diverse talent, ability, speed, & size can compete and even excel.  As America is the “Land of Opportunity”, Lacrosse is the “Sport of Opportunity”.  I want to help our players recognize this potential and exceed their ambitions.
