Former Notre Dame goalkeeper Scott Rodgers has joined the Towson Lacrosse staff as a volunteer assistant, Head Coach Shawn Nadelen announced. “I am excited to have Scott join our Towson staff,” said Nadelen. “Scott is an exceptional goalie who possesses the ability and passion to teach the techniques needed to excel in the cage. He has a great rapport with those he has worked with and Scott’s personality, work ethic and attitude will allow him to fit in well with our culture of Towson Lacrosse.”
Rodgers comes to Towson after a season as a volunteer assistant goalkeeping coach at Marquette University, a new Division I program. He played for the Ohio Machine during the 2013 Major League Lacrosse (MLL) season.
