The Spanish Fork Warriors are excited to enter their second year in Division I with a new coaching staff. Phil Dunn, 2013 Division I Coach of the Year, has decided to take a break from coaching to complete his degree in accounting and play for the Utah Valley University Wolverines, who are returning to the MCLA in 2014. We wish him great success.
Starting in the fall 2013 season, the Warriors are led by new head coach Wes Goar. Wes hails from Littleton, Colorado, where he grew up playing lacrosse. At BYU, he was the starting goalie for the 2011 MCLA National Championship team. In recent years, Wes has been training the Warriors goalies, and also coaches the Patriot Starz (formerly Jolly Rogers) club team. He is currently finishing his degree in Molecular Biology at BYU. Wes is emphasizing the team “Family,” and will be working closely with the defense and goalies.
Coach Goar will be assisted by Raul “Fuzzy” Braun, a native of Fallston Maryland who played face-off specialist and midfield for BYU. Fuzzy will primarily work with face-offs and offense. Parent-assistant coaches who will helping on the field and with the JV and freshman/sophomore teams include Jeff Dunn, Bill James, Scott Folsom, and Brandon Plewe. Phil Dunn will continue to work closely with the Warriors board as director of operations.
Club President Jeff Dunn is excited to have Coach Goar aboard. “The advanced playing experience that Wes and Fuzzy bring to our team will really help us move to the next level.”
As he was introduced to the parents Tuesday night, Coach Goar said his primary goal was “to help the boys become honorable men.” He continually stresses the idea of Warrior Nation being a family. “Growing up in Colorado, I really appreciated how my team felt like a family, because a lot of teams were not like that. The Warriors are already a family and we will play better the closer we are. The great support I feel from the parents and the community down here make that even stronger.”
