Hey everybody! Thanks for tuning in to the season finale of Season I of the Texas Lacrosse News Podcast.

This week’s guest is Cleveland State Assistant Coach, Andy German. The story of how I met Andy will give you just a small glimpse of the kind of person he is. When I was coaching at York, I went over to McDaniel College for the King of The Hill Tournament. I was the only coach watching a game on some far off field and Andy pulled up a chair right next to me. We started talking and when the game was over he said he was going to get some chipotle and asked if I wanted some on his tab. I obviously said yes and we kept in touch ever since.

Andy has an awesome perspective on the game of lacrosse and as a coach due to his diverse coaching resume:

He’s coached at the High School Level, the Division III level, Internationally, and at the Division I level at Villanova and now Cleveland State. My conversation with Andy is a great way to wrap up season I and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

In this episode we will discuss coach Dawson’s involvement with T99 and the growth of lacrosse in Texas. What earmarks a player as a “Haverford Guy” and how players have to navigate the recruiting process at an Academic school like Haverford.

Lastly, the Philly Cheesesteak Debate will be put to rest as Coach Dawson gives us his favorite cheesesteak stop and his order.
