Screen Shot 2018-04-11 at 9.05.07 AM I am very thankful, Coach Seaman helped me with an early podcast to launch laxcoachmike.com back in 2009. During a coaching career that spanned 30 years Tony Seaman became one of college lacrosse’s most successful, decorated and recognizable coaches of his era. He amassed a 263-166 record, which currently ranks him 22nd among college lacrosse coaches all-time. His record included 19 trips to the NCAA Tournament and nine conference titles. Coach Seaman began his career at C.W. Post (13-3) in 1982, the Pioneers’ first season of Division I competition. He was then hired as the University of Pennsylvania’s 19th head coach, enjoying success almost immediately while compiling a 74-37 record. In 1991 he began an eight-year stint at Johns Hopkins where he accumulated a 77-33 record including eight straight NCAA berths advancing to the semifinals four times. His 1995 team was a perfect 12-0 in the regular season. Towson was his final stop where he led the Tigers from 1999-2011 with a 99-93 record. He steered the Tigers into the NCAA post-season five times, winning four conference titles and as many league coach of the year awards along the way.

Now he is the Head Lacrosse Coach at St. Andrews in Boca Raton Florida.

General Manager, Assistant Coach, Denver Outlaws

In his three years as the team’s general manager, the Outlaws have amassed a league-best 34-8 (.810 pct.) record that represents a league mark for most wins in a three-year span and delivered Denver its first MLL Championship.

And an awesome Honor, Named to the IMLCA Hall of Fame, 2016

This full podcast for the Premium Members, was as much an interesting dialog between lacrosse coaches as it was about a specific practice plan, and a ton of great ideas and drill, Coach reviews his love of the “Nubbies” for reasons you might not expect, shooting ideas for practice, a long dialogs on slides, positioning, angles and footwork, and as you would expect a lot of talk about transition. He was a Transition Guy long before it was popular in today’s lacrosse, his love of 4V4 and a mix of traditional techniques for coaching as well as some that might surprise you,
