Galloway will be joining LB3 staff members and former Syracuse standouts Liam Banks, Pat Perritt, John Zulberti and Adam Vogl. Galloway will direct Summer Camps for Liam Banks’ LB3 and will also be in charge of developing and organizing off-season Goalie Clinics in the Southeast.
In addition, Galloway, a product of Upstate New York power West Genesee High, will provide advice and create programs for the LB3 North program in Philadelphia and LB3 South Club Lacrosse Teams in Atlanta. In keeping with LB3’s role as a preeminent lacrosse instructional organization, the focus of Galloway’s LB3 Camp initiative will be developing camps in non-traditional areas. He also will consult with all LB3 programs.

“Bringing in John, with all he has done at Syracuse and in Major League Lacrosse, is great,” said Banks. “More importantly, is the way he works with kids. He has learned from (West Genesee) coach Mike Messere and that gives us confidence that he will help LB3 in the Southeast and throughout the country.”
