From Press Release
Senior co-captain Scott McAvoy (Wyomissing, Duke’s LC) of the Lafayette men’s lacrosse team has been moved into the role of Student Assistant Coach, head coach Ed Williams announced recently.
McAvoy, selected as one of four co-captains for the Leopards last summer, suffered his second torn ACL in as many seasons early this year. The most recent tear was of the career-ending variety, shifting McAvoy’s role to the sideline for the spring season.
“This is never something you want to see happen to any player, especially in Scott’s case when he worked so hard to recover from his initial injury last March,” Williams said. “It was no shock to me when he told me he still wanted to do whatever he could to help the team.
“Moving him into the student assistant coaching role was a no-brainer. His attitude, character and work ethic is something we want on our coaching staff and something I want younger players in the program emulating. Even though his impact on this year’s team is not what he had envisioned, he has been an extremely valuable asset to the program and is embracing this new leadership role.”
Prior to his initial injury early in the season a year ago, McAvoy looked to be embarking on a breakout campaign after scoring 11 goals in the team’s first six games. For his career, the Wyomissing native appeared in 31 games for the Maroon and White, scoring 20 goals and adding five assists with 19 ground balls and four caused turnovers.
