Shout out to CSU on the great hire. Kyle Berhlohr is an excellent choice and the move demonstrates how committed the school is to the program.

If you didn't already know it, Kyle is a bit of a hometown boy, having grown up in Akron. The Washington Post did a story on Kyle coming home to play OSU back in April; Kyle was very excited about getting to play in front of his friends and family at the Shoe.

To the press release!!

BOSS Dylan Sheridan was very happy to announce the big news:

"Kyle is the most decorated player to ever come out of Northeast Ohio. His knowledge of the game, experience playing at the highest level and ability to provide goalie specific instruction will prove invaluable. More importantly, Kyle is passionate about Cleveland State, the City of Cleveland, and the Cleveland lacrosse community. We share the same vision for Viking Lacrosse and I have no doubt he will bring the same relentless approach to this position that he did while between the pipes at the University of Maryland."

Kyle's stats at Maryland were quite impressive:

Bernlohr emerged as a junior in 2015, starting all 19 games and earning the Kelly Award for the nation's most outstanding goalkeeper. A first team All-America (USILA) and All-Big Team honoree, he led the country in goals against average (6.95) and was sixth in save percentage (.571).

This past season, Bernlohr started all 20 games and ranked ninth in the country in goals against average (8.25), helping Maryland to its second straight national runner-up finish. He was once again named to the first team All-Big Ten and was a second team All-America pick by USILA.

Great move by CSU and congrats to Kyle.
