Brian Logue of US Lacrosse Magazine writes how the US U19 team, led by La Salle’s own Bill Leahy and Syracuse goaltender Willie Klan Nick Myers, won with people.

It started with Skip Lichtfuss, the head coach at Hanover College, who is the US Lacrosse Men's National Team Subcommittee Chair. The National Lacrosse Hall of Famer has a long history in the sport, having played and coached for Team USA, but Myers path had never crossed with him before this journey.

"He was a part of my interview and was one of the first people I met," said Myers. "Skip is someone I will cherish moving forward for the way he allowed me to share the vision for this particular team, and then for the way he supported this particular coaching staff throughout the process."

There were many more. He got to coach with his brother, Pat, and childhood friend Peter Toner, both current Division I assistants at Penn and Penn State, respectively. The staff included John Jez, who has won a pair of national championships at LIU Post., and high school coaches Chuck Ruebling (Delbarton, N.J.) and Bill Leahy [MY HIGH SCHOOL COACH] (La Salle, Pa.), who combined have won more than 900 games in their careers.

"This was the first staff with college coaches, but this really was a blended presence," said Myers, who will be a presenter at the US Lacrosse Convention in Baltimore from Jan. 20-22, 2017.
