Pine Richland Varsity Assistant - Defense
Dave attended Mt. Lebanon High School where he was a 7 time letterman (4 in lacrosse and 3 in football). During his senior year of high school, he was named captain of both the lacrosse and football teams. He went on to play lacrosse at Seton Hill University (2008-2012) where he majored in Mathematics. He then studied at Point Park University (2012-2014) where he earned a degree in Civil Engineering Technology. Dave currently works as a civil engineer for Civil & Environmental Consultants, Inc. (CUC) in Pittsburgh, PA
Dave started playing lacrosse for the Mt. Lebanon Youth Program in 6th grade. He started out as a midfielder but quickly realized his passion for close defense. He went on to be a 4-year letterman and captain at Mt. Lebanon High School. During his tenure, the program won three Division 1 WPSLA titles (2006, 2007, & 2008). During the 2007 campaign, Mt. Lebanon earned its way to the Pennsylvania State Championship where they finished runner-up to Downingtown East. At the end of his senior year, Dave was awarded All-American and WSPLA All-League Defenseman.
Following graduation, Dave took his talents to Seton Hill University from 2008 to 2012. He immediately had a strong impact on the young program and earned a considerable amount of playing time throughout his freshman campaign. He played in every game during his tenure at Seton Hill and was a 3-year starter between close defense and LSM. During his senior year, the program achieved its best record in history with an overall finish of 12-4. This mark remains tied for the best record in program history today.
Dave is in his second year with the Pittsburgh Low and Away U-13 team as the defensive coordinator. Furthermore, he has just begun his first year as an assistant coach on the Pine Richland High School varsity program where he will be focusing his efforts on the Defense.
