Dave Pietramala: His Defensive Scheme, Team Conflict Resolution, Personal Commitment
This week's guest is the former John's Hopkins University Coach Dave Pietramala. This episode was recorded in 2018, but it's still a valuable episode for any player or coach. Coach Pietramala started playing lacrosse as a 7th grader in Hicksville, NY. From there he went on to have one of the most successful playing careers ever. Widely regarded as the best defenseman of all time, Coach Pietramala has also found success on the sideline as the coach of his Alma Mater, John's Hopkins, leading them to National Championships in 2005 and 2007. In this episode, we discuss how he first fell in love with the sport, his struggles as a freshman student-athlete at Hopkins, the importance of playing multiple sports and multiple positions for young athletes, simulating game-like situations in practice, and teaching "winning and losing in life skills" and not just lacrosse skills.
