Brian’s Vision:
“My main role is the recruitment, training and education of collegiate lacrosse officials and I make it my business to always serve my fellow NILOA officials. I think I have been able to do this best because my focus is trying to get face to face with as many officials as possible and to be available for all officials when they need something practical and tangible, or simply to have a conversation.”
