A Way of Life

The Lynchburg College men’s lacrosse program is very proud of its alumni. Coach Koudelka reaches out to all of the alumni each Monday with current details inside the program. We have alumni dating back to the program’s inception in 1980 who remain engaged in the college's activities. Throughout the history of the program, alumni have been a valuable asset to not only the growth of the college but to also the men’s lacrosse program.

What does Lynchburg College Lacrosse Mean to You?

Being at student-athlete at Lynchburg College allowed me to grow as an individual by being challenged every day both in the classroom and on the field.  The valuable life lessons that I learned while being apart of the team my four years of college have given me the skills that are needed to be successful in my future.  The friendships and bonds between my teammates and coaches will be something that I will always cherish for the rest of my life.

What does Lynchburg College Lacrosse Means to You?

Lynchburg College has meant more to me than I could have ever imagined as a graduating senior coming out of high school. Not only did I develop into a better student-athlete at Lynchburg but I also gained the confidence and experience I needed for after graduation. All of the guys on the lacrosse team (and alumni), the mentors I had in coaches, the professors in class, as well as, my peers positively refined and guided my direction after school.

When I stepped into the ‘real-world’ I finally saw the whole picture because of my positive influences at LC. I now see the importance of routine and why we practiced so hard and prepared so diligently before games. I understand why we took our hats off inside buildings, and why we sat at the front of the classroom and “stood on the desk”, minutes before the big test. It’s because the unnoticed, compounded, things that are your actions ultimately lead to personal success. At the result of the day, whether it good or bad, depends on the steps and habits that are carried out from the time you wake up until you rest your head at night.. It would be hard for me to imagine that many places could give me that same advice.

I will always treasure the 25 rules we follow as Lynchburg Lacrosse players because they are so much more than text in the locker room. They represent the people, the school and the organization that make Lynchburg College so special and I will never take my experience for granted.

What does Lynchburg College Lacrosse Mean to You?

I have great memories of attending Lynchburg College.  Playing Lacrosse for 4 years at a time when the program was building gives me a sense of pride seeing what it has become.  My college years taught me so much about life.  And, playing Lacrosse instilled in me things that I use each and every day.  Commitment, Drive, Focus and Hard Work are attributes one must possess and these characteristics are enhanced being a college athlete.  I would not have achieved the same level of success in my life without the Lynchburg Lacrosse experience.

My love of the game has not subsided.  I have Coached my two sons and their Lacrosse teams since 1st grade.  Watching the players on my teams develop over the past 7 years has been an incredible experience. As every Coach knows, there is no greater reward than seeing the positive growth and maturity of his players both on and off the field.  The game of Lacrosse is still a major part of our families fabric.

My journey started as a Freshman on the LC Campus.  Growing into a leader/Captain of the Lynchburg Lacrosse team, to Coaching my own boys how to play this great game of Lacrosse and now leading a Sales Organization as the VP of Sales for North America.  I am proud to be an Alumni of Lynchburg College and even prouder to be a part of Lynchburg Lacrosse!

What does Lynchburg College Lacrosse Mean to You?

The Lynchburg lacrosse program means a lot to who I am. The way I carry myself, head held high and proud of who I am goes back to all of the hard work that was put into the program. How I teach my students or coach my players goes back to how I was pushed and how barriers were broken through during my time playing for the program. I think about every run I took, every lift I did, and every practice there ever was and I translate that to how far my students can push themselves in the classroom and have them stand on their desks during test time. I have my players push themselves the way we all have on the field. In all, this program helped shape who I am and how I relay things to those around me and to push others the way I have been pushed throughout my four years playing.

What does Lynchburg College Lacrosse Mean to You?

Lynchburg Men's Lacrosse was the point in my life where I learned how to work hard.  I found out what happens in life when you don't cut corners, you don't give up, and you figure out how to finish no matter what obstacles are in your way.  It is one of the single most important characteristics that translates into the rest of your life.  It is interesting to think about, and it comes to my mind often.  There have been countless moments since graduating from Lynchburg that I realized how much the lacrosse program sets you apart from most people in your life for the reasons above.  

On another note, my classmates, teammates, and coaches will always be my family, and I am looking forward to having them at, and in my wedding this August. We have a special relationship that will never fade, due to the memories that have been ingrained in us from our time at Lynchburg.

What does Lynchburg College Lacrosse mean to you?

Graduating from Lynchburg was an extremely special experience for me. I was able to attend college with my older brother, Josh Davey, and play on the lacrosse team with him for two years. Overall, Lynchburg and the lacrosse program taught me that there are really two types of people in life. There are people who are content with what they have and are comfortable living in their own box and there are people who want to continually grow, succeed, and improve in both their personal and professional lives. My experience at Lynchburg instilled in me that I should always strive to be the person who is trying to better themselves every day in every aspect of life. My time at Lynchburg was a 4 year period that I will never forget and I consider myself lucky to have gotten to know so many great people along the way.

What did graduating from Lynchburg do for you?
 
Lynchburg taught me what hard work was and the mental commitment you need to have to be successful. Being a graduate of Lynchburg College and specifically the men's lacrosse program, has allowed me to work in the sport I love and excel because of the commitment, hard work, and mental toughness that was instilled in all of us that endured four years of being committed to a common goal. It taught me to jump right into a tough situation or project, rather than dip my toe in. These are lessons that I use and think about everyday at work and in my life.

What Lynchburg College Lacrosse Means to You?
 
When I think about playing lacrosse at Lynchburg College and being an alumni of the school as a whole, the strongest feeling is that of pride. I was fortunate enough to spend four years at Lynchburg as a player and another two as a coach and everyday I am reminded just how much I gained from those experiences. In those six years I grew up, I endured challenges and difficulties, I celebrated unbelievable moments and accomplishments with guys who are still my closest friends, and I learned a lot about myself and what it means to work hard and be a man. I draw on all these experiences in my roles at work, at home, and anywhere else I go. Because of all that Lynchburg College did for me, I couldn't be more proud to tell people where I went to school, where I played lacrosse, and to wear the L as much as I possibly can.

What Lynchburg College Lacrosse Means to You?

Lynchburg College and more importantly Lynchburg Lacrosse was one of the best experiences I've had in my life. I was lucky to play under coach Koudelka and I am so grateful for everything his family and coaching staff did for us while we played there. Lynchburg was 3,000 miles away from home, but once I stepped foot on campus I felt home again.

What does Lynchburg Lacrosse mean to you?

I'm honored to be part of the Lynchburg Lacrosse family. I am proud to say that I played for Lynchburg and am flattered that I'm still included as an alum having only played my freshman and sophomore years. When I look back on my time at L.C., I feel that those two seasons on the Men's Lacrosse team were the most rewarding years I had in Lynchburg Va.

I believe Lynchburg Lacrosse is one of the best Division III programs in the country. And not just because of the successes on the playing field, but rather the cultivation and maturation of the young men who commit to this team. I sincerely believe the National Championship will find its way home to Lynchburg, but more importantly the Lynchburg Lacrosse alum will always be there to support the young men who become part of this family.

Go Burg!

What does Lynchburg College Men's Lacrosse Mean to You?                                 

I think about Lynchburg Lacrosse every single day. I think about Lynchburg Lacrosse when I talk to the guys I use to play with, and when I face a challenge. The program is special on so many levels. One of my favorite Lynchburg Lacrosse phrases is “make the next play.” I reiterate it almost every day. This phrase is great because it emphasizes toughness. I have made countless mistakes since I have graduated from Lynchburg College, whether at work, law school, or life in general. However, I have never let those mistakes turn into larger issues that interfere with my goals. That is what “making the next play “ is all about.  That is what Lynchburg Lacrosse is all about.

What Lynchburg Lacrosse means to me: Playing lacrosse at Lynchburg gave me not only a great education and amazing memories, but the confidence and tools needed to excel off the field in both my career and life. The lessons learned from Coach Koudelka, coaching staff and fellow players still come up everyday and shaped me into the man I am today. I can't fathom thinking about what my life would have been if I didn't play those 4 years and it's awesome to see how the program continues to changes people's lives.

What Lynchburg Lacrosse Means to me:
 
My time at Lynchburg was surrounded by so many people that cared about me and supported me in all my endeavors. I always knew that all my teammates had my back. To me the Lacrosse team was and continues to be my family!
Part of the family was having guys around me to always push me to be my best! My teammates were a great group of guys and we always pushed each other to be the best. To me Lynchburg Lacrosse was my family while I was at college and I am forever grateful for how they helped me grow.
The coaching staff, especially Coach Koudelka, helped me become a man and I am forever thankful for my experiences on faculty drive where Coach was always pushing me! To this day I reflect on my experience on the Lacrosse field and it is my belief that Coach Koudelka not only influenced me in becoming a teacher and a coach, but also helping me become a great husband and good father.

What Lynchburg College Lacrosse Means to You?

Lynchburg college provided me with an opportunity to excel academically and athletically. From mandatory study hall with the lacrosse team to voluntary peer-assisted study sessions in the school of sciences, I received individual support and motivation that allowed me to succeed in the classroom.

Athletically, I was surrounded with top-level coaches, teammates, and trainers that guaranteed that our team was consistently able to compete at the highest level nationally. The work ethic that was instilled in me at Lynchburg College has never left and has been a driving force in my post-collegiate career.

What Lynchburg College Lacrosse Means to You? 

Lynchburg College to me was some of the best four years of my life.  The friendships made, the life lessons learned, and the self confidence that is formed from being a part of the lacrosse team.  Knowing now eight years removed: the hardest brick to understand on the road to success is the sacrifice it takes to earn whats at the end.  The extra hour of shooting after practice, completing every rep in the weight room, running to the practice field; it's all part of the end goal.  And if understood in the beginning, makes for an awesome ending.  The mentality learned from being on the Lynchburg College Men's Lacrosse Team, and being coached by Coach Koudelka is a mindset that you will not find anywhere else.  It's the competitive mental edge that wins.    

One of the things I'm most proud of post college is the state championship the Arcadia Titans just won.  I started this high school lacrosse program 3 years ago in Arizona and instilled early on, a lot of lessons learned from Couch Koudelka.

What Lynchburg College Lacrosse Means to You?

I played every sport under the sun as a kid: basketball, baseball, soccer, football, golf, you name it. I loved it. Nothing made me happier. And of those sports, lacrosse was the one I specifically remember parents and coaches saying how much FUN was to be had playing. From the jump, I emphatically agreed. It's fast, extremely physical, and has a unique finesse to it. Playing at Lynchburg provided the platform to carry out my childhood dreams: to play lacrosse everyday. So remember when you're training during the summer, pulling two-a-days in the fall, or waking up at 6 a.m. for mile tests ... you're doing what you love. You're playing lacrosse at the highest level.

What Lynchburg College Lacrosse Means to You?

Although I just graduated, I already know that the days of me playing at Lynchburg College were the best days of my life. In college, the days and practices that were the most challenging were also the most rewarding. The best thing about our college, and especially our team, is that you get what you put into it. I have made life long friends with teammates that I respect and love.

I love our program because it is not easy; it is a long, hard road, with many challenges along the way. I did not play lacrosse for personal gain, benefits or any of that nonsense. I played for Lynchburg because I loved the sport, and the people within the program loved it just as much. My 2016 class walked away with three ODAC championship appearances, two ODAC championships, four NCAA tournament appearances, and one National Championship game.

I am proud of our program because it was built upon the framework of hardworking individuals. In 1999, we took our first step in being a real contender in our Division III world. Now, we are a powerhouse contender, hungry for that National Championship. It is not a flashy or individual type of program. It is a humble, hungry, and determined group of young men, backed by the best alumni in the world. Even though my years of playing are over, I cannot wait to cheer on past teammates and friends through every game. The Lynchburg lacrosse program truly has a large part of my heart, perhaps the largest behind the Almighty God. Best of luck to the class of 2017, let's keep taking this program in the right direction towards another ODAC championship, and closer to that national championship.

P.S. Coolest thing ever scoring that goal...the reaction from the guys on the field, the sideline, and bleachers is something I'll never forget.
