Joe comes to us after coaching 9 years in club lacrosse. Working with numerous high school and youth programs Joe has his footprint in a lot of different areas in Minnesota. Joe played at Saint Thomas Academy and then went out to the University of Colorado Boulder where he studied Mechanical Engineering and Finance. Joe now works and helps run JAWCO, a family owned and operated commercial real estate company. When asked why he likes to coach he usually smiles and replies: "I like to change lives. That is my purpose with lacrosse being my tool. Pete Carrol puts it in perspective by saying: "When you believe in someone more than they believe in themselves, you become more than a coach or a mentor, you become a life changer". That is my goal, to give young men the tools to succeed in all facets of life."
