Coach Porcell has been involved in the game of lacrosse for over 20 years. Josh has played at the highest professional level in the sport and played at the highest level of college at the Division 1 Level. He has over 10 years in college coaching experience at the Division 1 and D3 level. Josh wasn’t introduced to lacrosse until high school. He fell in love with the sport. He found that while he had the aptitude for lacrosse his foundational skills were not on par with those of his teammates. Through practice, perseverance and quality coaching Josh was able to elevate his game to the professional level in a few short years. That is why he takes personal interest in every player he comes in contact with. He wants to give every lacrosse player the opportunity to achieve excellence. He gained an appreciation for the goals you can realize through dedication, vision, hard work and a strong foundational skill development program. Instructional platforms like Rogue were not available for Josh. That is why his goal is sharing the game with young players today.

Head Coach University of Texas
Coaching to me is a way to give back to the game I love so much. The reason I coach is simply to teach kids what I have learned throughout my career and share my experiences. I want to make kids better and hopefully inspire them to play at the next level whether that be high school or in college. Motivating, and coaching is something I enjoy a lot and there’s nothing else more rewarding then seeing young athletes develop into great lacrosse players and men. Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in the country and I don’t see it slowing down. I am honored to be a part of growing this game.
