Baltimore, MD — The National Interscholastic Lacrosse Coaches Association (NILCA) presented their 2014 Coach of the Year Award to Jeff Brameier, Head Coach of Darien (Conn.), at the IMLCA Convention on Saturday.
Brameier was the Head Coach of Darien’s 2014 undefeated (23-0), Connecticut State Champion and one of the top-ranked teams in America. This was Brameier’s 10th career state lacrosse championship. Entering his 33rd year, Coach Brameier has amassed a record of 506-127.
“NILCA is truly proud to have named Coach Brameier as our Coach of the Year,” said Ren Pettinelli, President of the National Interscholastic Lacrosse Coaches Association. “Brameier is synonymous with Darien, not just because of lacrosse, but because of his passion for all students and the community of Darien as a whole.”
NILCA was formed to provide dedicated service to high school lacrosse coaches throughout the United States. We seek to identify and provide solutions to issues raised by men’s high school lacrosse coaches. NILCA conducts its annual meeting in association with the IMLCA Convention.
