ABOUT THE TEAM
The boys’ lacrosse program at SCH Academy was started in 2005. Since that time, it has quickly developed into a highly competitive varsity program that competes in the Inter-Ac, which is arguably one of the top three lacrosse leagues in the country.
The Blue Devils are led by lacrosse icon Coach Brian Dougherty who took over as head coach in 2018. “Doc” has an impressive lacrosse resume. He was a two-time All American at the University of Maryland, including two-time goalie of the year and NCAA Tournament MVP.
After college, “Doc” won two International gold medals with Team USA and played professionally for 9 years with the Rochester Rattlers, Long island Lizards, and Philadelphia Barrage again taking home goalie-of-the-year honors three times. In the ultimate sign of respect, Dougherty was inducted into the US Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 2012.
Coach Dougherty has coached at the NCAA level at UPenn, Haverford College, and Chestnut Hill College. He will be an assistant coach for the MLL Philadelphia Barrage this season.
Coach Matt Rambo, the 2017 Tewaaraton and Enners Award winner, is an assistant for the Blue Devils.
