Thanks to all who participated in a great day of lacrosse at UT's Caven Lacrosse Complex. 

Coaching and Teaching Lacrosse in the Community

This week coach Loda worked at Casis Elementary school with third through fifth grade students teaching PE lacrosse. Students learned about all the skills it takes to play lacrosse as well as some of the history of the game. They practiced passing, catching, cradling, and ground balls with fun drills that coach Loda was well versed in after having taught similar curriculum's in schools while he worked in Manchester, England for the English Lacrosse Association.

Head Coach Announcement

Teammates, alumni, family, and friends,

After two long months of reviewing dozens of resumes and interviewing numerous candidates, the selection committee has come to a decision to hire Kyle Loda as the head coach for the 2014-2015 year.

Kyle has served the team as offensive coordinator for two years while balancing his involvement in the Austin lacrosse community as assistant coach at Austin High and a coach with Team Texas select teams. Along with his involvement with our program and the surrounding community, Kyle represents UT Lacrosse as a man of strong moral character with a desire to continually improve as a coachand a leader. Kyle was specifically chosen for his ability to work with the team to accomplish our goals both on the field and off.

Assisting Coach Loda will be Derek Mayer as defensive coordinator and assistant head coach. Christian Kelso will also be returning as defensive assistant coach. Pulling from the resumes and contacts we've made through this process, we will also be hiring an offensive assistant coach and a goalie/specialty coach.

Some of the things you can expect from Kyle and the leaders of the team this year:
- Alumni Weekends in both fall and spring
- Coach and player led clinics for youth and high school lacrosse players
- Monthly team meetings with players and coaches
- Weekly depth charts, practice plans, and scouting reports
- Newsletters with updates on the progress of the team through the year
- Constant communication by coaches and officers to the team
- Texas Lacrosse recruiting combine in the fall
- Academic standards and study hall for at-risk players
- Stricter oversight of spending and greater transparency of financials

Thank you to everyone who provided input and perspective during the selection process. I would like to specifically thank Walter Williams, Bronson Parker, and Sam Jones for their help through all the interviews and discussions.

I am looking forward to a very successful year and I firmly believe that Coach Loda, along with his staff, will lead the team to success on the field, in the classroom, and in the community.

Hook 'em!

Longhorns After their 3rd Consecutive LSA Title

Texas Longhorns 2014 Captains and Outlook

AUSTIN, TX  — The University of Texas Men’s Lacrosse team has announced their team captains for the 2014 season. Senior midfielders Josh Francis and John Jackson along with defensemen Michael Rizzutti, Sr., Turner Kerr, Jr., and goalie Jordan Lee, Sr., will lead the squad.

2014 Texas Captains

#12 Josh Francis
#14 John Jackson
#3 Michael Rizzuti
#17 Turner Kerr
#10 Jordan Lee

Last season Francis and Jackson totaled 53 points together while Lee finished the season with a .669 save percentage which helped the team reach their 3rd consecutive MCLA playoff berth and Lone Star Alliance championship title. 

Senior Josh Francis, the team President, says “There is a lot of buzz going around in regards to this upcoming season. The guys are excited, the students are excited, and really the Texas lacrosse community as a whole is excited. What’s different this year from years past is the fact that we have a strong core of seniors that have stuck with it.  But the most glaring difference to this team is our schedule. It’s one of the toughest, if not the toughest, in the MCLA. Which just goes to show that we believe in us, the University believes in us, and our fans believe in us.”

Jackson says he’s excited for the season to start. “We have a great group of seniors, and a lot of promising young talent,” Jackson said. “It’s been a great off season and we should be ready to make a little noise come spring time.”

This season the Longhorns have a busy schedule with 11 road games including trips to Colorado to play No. 2 CU Boulder and defending national champions Colorado State, and Oregon to take on Simon Fraser from Canada and the University of Oregon Ducks. Texas lost to CU Boulder 11-7 in the MCLA playoffs last year.

Head Coach Andy Garrigan is optimistic about the season despite losing their leading scorer from last season Spencer Price.

“It’s a very challenging out of conference schedule, but one that I absolutely believe we are ready to take on,” Garrigan said. “We have an incredibly talented team that I frankly believe is more talented than the squad we fielded last year. The slate of games we scheduled was done to challenge this gifted group.” 

Additionally, Texas will travel east to take on NCAA Division 1 Mercer University in Macon, Ga.  Texas will kick of their season on February 1 at home against NCAA Division 3 Southwestern University at the Caven Lacrosse and Sports Center.
