“Strong Of Heart” Video Profiles Life And Recovery Of Notre Dame Men’s Lacrosse Player Adam Sargent, Severely Injured After Car Accident In 1997
When Adam Sargent arrived at the University of Notre Dame in the fall of 1993 from Brighton High School in Rochester, N.Y., he envisioned not only working with his teammates to achieve success on the lacrosse field but also looking forward to the day when he received his diploma in the shadows of the Golden Dome.
He could not have foreseen how this education would prepare him for the challenges ahead.
Sargent’s life was changed forever 13 years ago. At 8:30 on the morning of May 29, 1997, the 21-year-old senior, who had distinguished himself on a team that qualified for three straight appearances in the NCAA lacrosse tournament, was on his way to nearby Saint Mary’s College to take an exam when he was involved in a two-car accident at the intersection of Notre Dame Avenue and Angela Boulevard. The accident separated Sargent’s neck at the C-7 vertebrae and left him paralyzed from the chest down with somewhat limited use of his arms.
Sargent’s focus soon changed from winning games to learning how to live again. He not only graduated from Notre Dame with a double major in history and anthropology in 1999, but also matriculated to become a valued member of the University’s Academic Services for Student-Athletes, counseling members of the football, ice hockey and women’s golf teams.

St. Margaret’s Boys Lacrosse Head Coach Glen Miles Discusses The Importance Of Recruiting And Supporting Experienced Coaches To Maintain The Growth Of Western High School Lacrosse Programs
In the second part of an interview, Glen Miles, head coach of 2013 CIF-Southern Section Lacrosse Champion St. Margaret’s Episcopal Boys Lacrosse program, talks about the importance of “experienced and dedicated” coaching in Western High School Lacrosse.
LaxBuzz: University of Denver Men’s Lacrosse Head Coach Bill Tierney has stated that it is critical for the continued growth and success of Western Lacrosse to have “high quality, experienced and dedicated coaches” (i.e. East Coast experience) to continue to take up positions with club teams and high school programs. Many top Division I players have been traveling back and landing at Western programs, but they lack the experience in coaching at top collegiate programs.
How do you see experienced “East Coast coaches” being lured to coming out west? Is it possible for top boys coaches to play MCLA or Div II or III college lacrosse at western programs and become top-level coaches?
Glen Miles: “Coach Tierney is 100% correct. He has great interest in the California Lacrosse market. Many of our highly skilled players will be attracted to Denver University for a variety of reasons.”
“First, he is a great coach, leader and mentor and he runs a great program. Second, it is the closest DI program and if our players want to shoot for the highest level, it is a great place to go to school.”
“High quality coaching is very important. Because we live in California and have arguably the most desirable climate on the planet, attracting great young lacrosse guys to California will not be too difficult.”
“What will be difficult is keeping these coaches coaching High School Lacrosse. It will not be difficult to keep them in California, but regrettably they seem to migrate toward club lacrosse and away from High School programs.”
“The reason for this is simple: the average High School coaching stipend is around $3000. The job as it is structured right now is difficult for the little bit of money that they receive. They are doing it for the love of the game and the love of the kids. We can’t add additional stress to the job description.”
“Booster clubs, steering committees and the like must be patient and be willing to accept some mistake as a young coach grows. The guys that want to do this job understand that they must have a “real job” to make ends meet. Sometimes their real job is lacrosse and sometimes it is not.”
“I think there are plenty of great coaching role models currently at MCLA, DII and DIII. The issue of whether a young coach continues to grow is a factor of how committed we are to help him grow.”
