Towson, Md. — Ben Rubeor ‘04 has been named Loyola Blakefield’s new Assistant Director of Admissions and Head Coach of the varsity lacrosse team, filling vacancies in both areas.
Most recently, Ben served as Assistant Athletic Director and head lacrosse coach at St. Mary’s (Md.) in Annapolis, where he helped guide the Saints to the 2015 MIAA A Conference championship. In his administrative role, Ben was instrumental in recruitment, admissions, and fundraising efforts. In addition to leading St. Mary’s to an MIAA ‘A’ Conference title in 2015, he was named National Coach of the Year by USA Today. His previous coaching experience also includes one season as a Graduate Assistant Coach for the UVA men’s team. Additionally, he is an accomplished professional lacrosse player, garnering many team and individual honors as a member of the Chesapeake Bayhawks for the past eight years.
“I’m excited to return to Loyola Blakefield, my alma mater, to assist in admissions and lead the lacrosse program. I can’t wait to meet the players, the families, and the coaches and to begin the journey that is the 2016 lacrosse season. I love this school. It has done so much for me. There is a lot of work to do, and it begins now. Thank you to Anthony Day, John Marinacci, Michael Keeney, John Feeley, and the rest of the Loyola Blakefield community for giving me this opportunity. I will give it my all.”
After graduating from Loyola, Rubeor attended the University of Virginia, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in English and a master’s in finance. He was also a three-time All-American and key member of the men’s lacrosse team that captured the 2006 NCAA Championship.
John Marinacci, Principal at Loyola, sees Rubeor as a dynamic addition to the staff — one that will have a positive impact on and off the field.
“We are thrilled to have Ben as our Assistant Director of Admissions and the head of our lacrosse program. Having an alumnus that brings a passion for Loyola’s success in key positions like these is a winning combination. We are excited about having him make his mark as an ambassador of the school. His prior experiences and roots at Loyola have the ingredients for success. He is the right person to continue where Jack Crawford, Joe McFadden and all the coaches who are part of our great tradition have left off.”
Rubeor previously worked as a Venture Capital Analyst with Greenspring Associates in Owings Mills. As a student at Loyola, he was the 2004 recipient of the C. Markland Kelly Award as Maryland’s top high school lacrosse player. His collegiate career was marked with accolades that include: All-ACC selections (2006, ‘07, and ‘08), All-ACC Tournament team selections (2006, ‘07, ‘08), ACC Lacrosse Scholar Athlete of the Year (2008), and finalist for Tewaaraton Trophy (‘07, ‘08).
