ROOS LACROSSE HIRES BRADMAN AS WOMEN LAX COACH
SUNY Canton is pleased to announce the hiring of long-time Canton resident Dave Bradman as head women’s lacrosse coach.
Bradman, who retired from his position as the physical education teach at Canton’s Hugh C. Williams High School in 2008, was the school’s athletic director when the girl’s lacrosse program was started. “I had an administrative hand in the process,” he said, “I supported the kids and coaches who wanted to get things going.”
With SUNY Canton, Bradman’s involvement will be much more hands on. The decision was made to add women’s lacrosse in February, and Bradman will be responsible for building the program from the ground up, which should not be difficult given his extensive resume. In addition to holding the athletic director position, he also served as the school’s football and boy’s lacrosse coach for 24 years.
While coaching boy’s lacrosse, Bradman amassed 364 wins, which places him 20th on the list of New York State coaches, according to LaxPower.com.
He graduated from Adelphi University in 1970 with a degree in physical education before obtaining a master’s degree in health. While at Adelphi he was a member of both the football and lacrosse teams.
He was inducted into the Upstate New York Chapter of the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 2008.
His son, Sam, is a senior at Salisbury University in Maryland and a standout for the Sea Gulls lacrosse team.
Bradman will be joined on the bench by assistant coaches Mark Howlett, who coaches the men’s soccer team, and Carol LaMarche, who coaches the women’s volleyball team.
