v13i10_Rodgers.jpg GoMarquette.com - Marquette has announced the addition of volunteer assistant coach Scott Rodgers to its coaching staff.

Rodgers, who will primarily be working with Marquette's goalies as well as helping out with the team's strength and conditioning, played his collegiate career at Notre Dame and is currently a member of the Hamilton Nationals of Major League Lacrosse and the Minnesota Swarm of the National Lacrosse League.

During his time at Notre Dame, Rodgers played in 38 games, including 31 starts and posted a 6.77 goals-against average and a .642 save percentage in his career. In 2010, he was named the Most Outstanding Player of the NCAA Championship game after a 15-save performance in a 6-5 overtime loss to Duke in the national championship.

Rodgers, a two-time All-America honoree for the Fighting Irish, lead the nation in save percentage twice (2009 and 2010) and in goals-against average in 2009. He left Notre Dame with a 24-6 career mark in between the pipes.

In addition to receiving national recognition for his on-field performance, Rodgers was also a finalist for the 2010 Lowe's Senior CLASS Award, which recognizes student-athletes for great achievement during competition and in their community. Rodgers graduated Notre Dame with a degree in Sociology.

Rodgers was selected seventh overall in the 2010 Major League Lacrosse draft by the Hamilton Nationals and 15th overall by the Minnesota Swarm. The Wantagh, N.Y., native played in eight games for the Nationals and helped the team to a championship appearance in his rookie season.

"I am really excited to be working with Marquette University's men's lacrosse team, because it is an up and coming division I team, starting from the ground up," said Rodgers. "To get my career off in strength and conditioning and in the lacrosse coaching world is a great opportunity offered by Coach Amplo, so I just appreciate it."
