作者介紹 Jack B. Kaley is the all-time leader in winning percentage (84%) for Division I and II universities and has been the head coach for the German national lacrosse team since 2002. His record of 185-33 at the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) occurred at an academic institution that had discontinued men's lacrosse in 1978. His efforts in recruiting student-athletes to a commuter school as a part-time coach with limited resources showed positive results in the 1993 inaugural season with a No. 5 national ranking followed by an undefeated regular season in 1994, which culminated in the first of six National Championship appearances. This launched a 17-year run of excellence, which included four National Championships, a record four-time recognition as National Coach of the Year, and 75 All-American selections. Kaley amassed a 507-176 record while coaching Lynbrook High School, East Meadow High School, Long Island Lacrosse Club, Hampstead Lacrosse Club, and the German National Team. He lives in Westbury, New York. Rich Donovan is an assistant coach for the German National Lacrosse Team; the boys' lacrosse coach at The Wheatley School in Long Island, New York; and an official with the Nassau County Lacrosse Officials Association.
