Rick Brocato, Ron Klausner and Mac Kennedy continue to serve up the hottest new show in high school lacrosse


The 2nd episode of the 2019 Kooper’s Tavern VSN LaxCast is here with special guest Dave Cottle, the head coach of the Chesapeake Bayhawks of Major League Lacrosse. He follows Johns Hopkins’ men’s lacrosse coach Dave Pietramala, who joined our crew last week, as we kicked off our second season.

Cottle, a Baltimore native who played at Northern High School and Salisbury University, made his mark in the coaching world at Loyola University in Maryland (then Loyola College) and the University of Maryland before moving into the professional ranks with the Bayhawks.

Hosts Mac Kennedy, Rick Brocato and Ron Klausner bring Coach Cottle into their lively weekly discussions on high school lacrosse. This week’s show, as always, features several great segments, including:

  • The O’Connor, Mooney Fitzgerald Hot Seat Segment where the guys discuss all of the new rules for 2019.
  • TruLacrosse Players to Watch segment in which some of the top local high school players to watch are discussed.
