PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
Providence College assistant lacrosse coach, John Galloway, will be tracking the progress of his experience in Major League Lacrosse (MLL) over the course of the summer.
Galloway was the 20th overall pick in the 2011 MLL draft by the Rochester Rattlers. This Summer (2013) will mark his third season with the Rattlers. In his first two seasons with Rochester, Galloway logged over 1,312 minutes between the pipes, posting an 8-13 record and 318 saves. In 2011, Galloway was named the Rochester Rattlers Rookie of the Year.
Galloway graduated from Syracuse University, in 2011, where he was a four year starter for the Orange. He finished his career as Syracuse's all-time leader in wins (59), minutes played by a goalie (3,776), goals against average (7.33) and holds the record in NCAA Tournament career goals-against average (7.20).
Galloway is the only starting goalie in NCAA history to win two national championships (2008 and 2009). He was the first goalie in Syracuse's history to be named First-Team All-American, twice, and the programs first two-time recipient of the national academic All-American accolades.
Blog #1: Battle Back from Adversity!
Good morning Friar Nation! This will be the first of many blogs this summer that will give you all a deeper insight on playing in the Major League Lacrosse while also getting to recruit the future of the Providence Lacrosse program! I am on the flight back from Denver after one of the most difficult games I have ever played. It has been a long time since we have taken such a bad loss, but I do think there are a lot of positives we can take from the tough loss to the Outlaws this weekend. We were both humbled and made aware of our weaknesses.
A bye week couldn't come soon enough. Memorial Day weekend will allow us allow to step back and re-evaluate what we need to do to be successful the remainder of the summer. The best part about playing this sport is if you take a deep look in the mirror, you can make the changes needed to be successful pretty quickly. The challenge is being willing to admit your faults and adapt. I can't wait to get back out on the field in a few weeks, but for now, back to recruiting! With high school playoffs around the corner, the coaching staff will hit the road looking for the future FRIARS! Please continue to tune in, as I got a good feeling the future is bright for the RRRRRRRattlers!
