Varsity lacrosse Coach Casey O’Neill ’96 (3rd from left) was invited to attend and present at the University of Michigan Lacrosse Program’s coaching clinic on January 21st, in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He addressed youth and high school coaches from that area and the Midwest about building a successful high school program. He was able to see some of his former players in a pre-season exhibition scrimmage.
Pictured above (l-r) are Hunter Golian ’16 (Denison), Thomas Farrell ’13 (Denison), Coach O’Neill ’96, Colin Riehl ’14 (Marquette), Luke Vassos ’15 (Marquette), Avery Myers ’16 (Michigan), and Michael Borda ’15 (Michigan). “Being able to catch up with the guys and their parents on a quick trip like this was incredible,” said O’Neill.
Here are a couple more photos of Coach O’Neill — one of him presenting and one of him on the 50 yard line in Michigan Stadium.
At trip’s end, Coach O’Neill posted this on social media: “Unreal surreal feeling when you are only person standing inside the Big House on an early, very foggy Sunday morning in Ann Arbor. Well, except for Michigan head coach John Paul who kindly took the photo and opened up the gate at 7am. Incredible 24 hours. Top highlight reuniting with some old pals.”
