Kevin Reisman

Kevin Reisman has returned home to Limestone University as the assistant men’s lacrosse coach.

Reisman, who most recently served as an assistant coach at the University of Tampa, returns to a Limestone program that he helped lead to three NCAA Division II National Championships. He wrapped up his stellar career in the Blue and Gold as arguably one of the best players in Division II history before winning two Major League Lacrosse Championships with the Ohio Machine and the Boston Cannons.

During his time with the Spartans, Reisman coached the faceoff specialists while working with the defensive unit. Tampa won over 80-percent of its faceoff attempts (167-of-206) and held opponents to a 5.98 goals against average before a promising 8-0 start was abruptly ended by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Prior to his time with the rival Spartans, Reisman was a volunteer assistant coach for two seasons at Division I Cornell University. In his two years with the Big Red, he worked with the faceoff unit and helped mentor specialist Paul Rasimowicz to an honorable mention All-Ivy League selection in 2018. Rasimowicz moved into fifth place in Cornell history for career faceoff wins during Reisman’s tenure in Ithaca, N.Y.

Twice named to the Tewarraton Award Watch List, Reisman was drafted by the Ohio Machine in 2017 shortly before guiding the Saints to a third NCAA Division II National Championship if four years. He went 50-of-119 during his rookie season to help guide the Machine to the 2017 MLL Championship.

He was traded to the Florida Launch in 2018 before being selected by the Cannons in the 2019 Supplemental Draft. Reisman appeared in 13 games that year, leading the team with 109 groundballs. During a COVID-shortened campaign in 2020, he went 56-of-90 (.622) from the faceoff circle over the course of a week, including a 5-for-7 showing in the Championship Game against the Denver Outlaws.

During his career with the Saints, he posted a career .735 faceoff winning percentage to go with an astonishing 926 career groundballs. He is the all-time career leader in NCAA Division II history in groundballs (926), groundballs per game (10.88), faceoff wins (1,323), and faceoffs taken (1,801). Reisman also holds the NCAA DII record for fastest goal to start a game – five seconds.

The four-time All-American holds four of the top six spots in NCAA Division II history for most groundballs in a season and is featured in the top-10 three times for best single-season faceoff winning percentage.
