Screen Shot 2018-03-06 at 11.42.16 AMJacksonville University landed a lacrosse icon to lead its men’s program when John Galloway was named head coach in June of 2016. This was my first interview with Coach Galloway amazing philosophies, I loved it!

Galloway, one of the young legends in the sport, joined the Dolphins after a four-year stint at Providence College.

“John Galloway is exactly the right person to be the next head coach of our men’s lacrosse program,” Ricker-Gilbert said. “After an exhaustive search, there was no doubt in my mind that he is who we need to lead our young men forward. John has had success at every level both playing and coaching and his passion for student-athletes and the game was evident from our first conversation. He is a person of the highest character and that trait carries more weight than any other. I am thrilled to welcome John to the JU family.”

From Syracuse, N.Y., Galloway played goalkeeper for Syracuse University and ended his college career with an NCAA-record 59 wins while playing a record 3,776 minutes. He was a two-time First Team All-American at the position, and the only goalie in Orange history to earn the honor twice. He was also the only goalie in NCAA history to win national championships in his freshman and sophomore years.

In addition to his on-field presence, Galloway was a two-time national Academic All-American and was twice named Big East All-Academic.

While at Providence, Galloway helped coach Peter Badgley to Big East Goalkeeper of the Year and All-Big East First Team honors. It was the first time in program history that a Friar had earned the accolade. He also mentored Jarrod Neumann to an All-Big East First Team selection.

In his first season as a professional with the Rochester Rattlers (Major League Lacrosse), he was named Rookie of the Year, and in his fourth season, he was crowned the 2014 Warrior Goalie of the Year.

Galloway helped lead the Rattlers to the MLL championship game and was selected to play in the MLL All-Star Game in 2015. In addition to playing professionally, he was a member of the U.S. Men’s National Team in 2014.
