Congratulations to Brian O’Rorke on being named the 7th Head Coach in the proud, 51 year history of Montclair Lacrosse. Coach O’Rorke was confirmed at the Tuesday Board of Education Meeting and will begin to put together his staff and begin off-season training for lacrosse players throughout Montclair.
Brian brings professional experience to Brotherhood Lacrosse as a former member of the New Jersey Pride. He was the first player ever to be drafted and signed by a Major League Lacrosse (MLL) team from the Providence College Lacrosse Program. O’Rorke’s number 24 is the first and only number to be retired by the Providence College Men’s Lacrosse Program.
Brian began his career at Montclair High School in New Jersey where he was an All-State defenseman in his junior and senior years. He continued his lacrosse career at Providence College where as a four-year starter, he led the Friars to an unprecedented four-straight MAAC Championship Tournament berths. He was named Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Rookie of the Year during his first season with the team (2001) and followed as a MAAC three-time Defensive Player of the Year and three-time All-MAAC First Team selection (2002, 2003, 2004), making him Providence College’s most decorated men’s lacrosse player of all-time. In 2003 and 2004 Face-off Magazine selected Brian as a Division I Pre-Season All-American. In his senior year he was selected to play in the USILA North/South Classic All-Star Game and was honored with the prestigious Mal Brown Award, which is given annually by the Providence College Athletic Program to the male athlete whose career of intercollegiate competition most portrays sportsmanship, courage and honor. Brian was most recently the Co-Head Varsity Lacrosse coach at Northern Highlands High School and the co-founder of Brotherhood Lacrosse.
