“Casey is a world champion lacrosse player, a dynamic leader and a great ambassador for the sport of lacrosse,” stated Ahern. “He is the all-time leading scorer in Major League Lacrosse history, 2010 National Lacrosse League MVP, and a former member of the US National Team. His resume is extensive and well-respected in the lacrosse world. We are very lucky to have him take the helm.”

Saint Andrew’s School is proud to announce that lacrosse legend Casey Powell has been hired as Director of Lacrosse Programs. In his role, Powell will assist Athletic Director David Ahern in supervision of all upper and middle school boys and girls lacrosse programs. He will also work closely with Interim Head Boys Lacrosse Coach RJ Dawson during the club and varsity seasons.

Upon hearing that Saint Andrew’s was engaging in a search for its nationally ranked lacrosse program, Powell’s agent contacted Headmaster Dr. Ann Marie Krejcarek and Ahern.

Ahern is quite impressed with Powell and what he will bring to Saint Andrew’s.  Powell has coached and taught over 12,000 boys and girls at his summer camps and clinics throughout the United States as well as some International coaching in Japan, Australia, Mexico, England, Scotland, and Wales. Casey has also coached at Cortland State in New York.

“I’m excited about the prospect of coaching at Saint Andrew’s and helping their talented players take it to the next level,” said Casey Powell. “Staying in the Florida area and coaching the team here will allow me to broaden the lacrosse horizon for the students at Saint Andrew’s.”

Ahern said Powell will conclude his obligations with the Boston Blazers through the end of their season while simultaneously conducting his own duties as the Director of Lacrosse Programs for the Scots.

Meanwhile, Krejcarek is pleased to bring Powell’s leadership to the school campus.

“Casey Powell brings us over 20 years of great lacrosse knowledge, wisdom, and experience,” said Krejcarek. “He is one of the biggest names in the game, a true ‘Legend’, and he will be a strong fit for the Saint Andrew’s School community and a match to the Saint Andrew’s School mission.”
