Coach Recruiting Interview

The Florida State Seminoles lacrosse program made history this year, being the first team in school history to have an undefeated regular season (11-0) under first year head coach and former Syracuse All-American Matt Doyle. Coach Doyle’s first freshman class had a huge impact on the team’s success this year, including the 2014 SELC Rookie of the Year Cole Lindquist (Lake Mary, FL). It should be a very exciting 2nd year under the Cuse’ alum with all 10 starters returning, which includes five SELC All-Conference selections.

What positive surprises did you see from your team this season?

The freshmen stepping up, we had 6 starting freshmen, and sometimes we had 8 on the field at one time. they are a wonderful group to coach, and they will be scary going forward.

How did your season stack up against your expectations going into the season?

We stacked up perfect, we went 11-0 in the reg season. I thought we could do that, so there weren’t any surprises. I have high hopes for this program.

Where did your team improve the most during the season and which player’s took a step forward in their game?

Our defense improved every week, they learned how to play team defense, which ultimately led us to an unbeaten record. They were the heart and soul. Will Pilkington became a true leader as the season wore on. Will has an important 2015 coming up.

Where can next year’s team improve in order to reach your ultimate goal for the season?

We can improve all over the field, but we must improve on our 6 on 6 offense. I will stress our motion offense this fall. The guys will fully understand this scheme in year 2 of it. Putting in new packages in Jan, hurt our perpetration a little bit. But this is the year where I think our offense takes off.

Which incoming players are you most excited about and how do they fit with the type of team you are building?

I’m excited by all our freshmen coming in, you know why??? Because we have 10 out of 10 starters returning from 2014. All these freshman will have to compete or playing time. It’s going to be fun to see the guys fight for a position.
