"Perspective from a former player:

Coach Cooke has solid knowledge of the game, and the ability to recognize raw athleticism and turn those individuals into talented lacrosse players. In the 4 years that I have played for him - I have seen many players accomplish successful collegiate careers.

Bottom line - and I will emphasize on this- tough skin is a MUST with this coach, along with strong work ethic and coachability.

As a player, I have seen talented recruits walk onto the field without these attributes and in most cases - ran off crying after the first month of pre-season practice because they couldnt hack it. I have also seen players who stuck around but were resistant to coaching or didn't work hard because they felt entitled to play - and this prevented them from reaching their full potential-- a dead weight for the team.

Cooke's coaching philosophy and methods are tough - he will break you down, and then build you into a better, more efficient player. From personal experience - some days he made me feel like I was the worst player on the field - but it was critique with a purpose. If you can not take this in as a challenge to push yourself with mental toughness- you will not go very far.

Before you decide to sign to ANY program, do yourself and the coach a favor - perform a realistic personality check with the coach and existing players. Or else you might find yourself in a bad fit that you may not be able to get out of easily.


I would 200% play for Coach Cooke again." - 2/27/2012
