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."
Maverik Lacrosse announced Tuesday a multi-year partnership with the Notre Dame men's lacrosse team. With this agreement, Maverik is now the official equipment supplier of the Fighting Irish.
Notre Dame will receive custom designed Maverik gloves, shoulder pads and elbow guards. Additionally, they will have a vast arsenal of Maverik equipment to choose from including the new Spider 1 and Flight heads, as well as the Boost, H2 and Wonderboy shafts. Maverik will also provide the Irish with everything needed for on-field play from chest protectors to Maverik game balls.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with Maverik for all our lacrosse equipment needs. Maverik has proven to be smart, innovative and committed to the growth of the game. Most importantly, I believe they are a great fit for us because we share the same values and goals for the sport and for our program. They are committed to helping us provide the best experience for our student-athletes," said Irish head coach Kevin Corrigan.
In recent years, Notre Dame has had tremendous success under the guidance of Corrigan and his staff. Most notably in 2010, the Irish battled their way to an NCAA Division I National Championship Game and fell in the final. In 2011, Notre Dame ascended to the No. 1 ranking for the first time in program history and again returned to the NCAA Championship weekend where its season came to an end in the quarterfinals.
All signs point to the Fighting Irish making an even bigger showing in 2012.
"Notre Dame is the most recognized university in the world because of its top academics and athletic department. Coach Corrigan has done an outstanding job building Notre Dame's program into a title contender," said John Gagliardi, president and founder of Maverik Lacrosse. "We are proud to be partners with an elite program like the Notre Dame lacrosse family."
