Third-year Volunteer Assistant Coach David Shriver moves into new role
Penn State Lacrosse Will Conduct Free Boys' Clinic at Holuba Hall
Former Georgetown attacker David Shriver enters his third season at Penn State, his first as director of operations. Shriver was elevated to director of operations by head coach Jeff Tambroni on Aug. 29, 2013.
Shriver is instrumental with the team's offense by developing the extra-man unit and offensive personnel. Penn State's offense has improved each of the past two seasons under Shriver's assistance from 8.14 (2011) to 10.47 (2013).
"First off, I want to give a big thank you to Dave Joyner, Jan Bortner, and Coach Tambroni for this phenomenal opportunity," Shriver said. "I am thrilled to have the chance to continue to be at Penn State University with such an outstanding staff and an excellent group of student-athletes. I am very fortunate to be able to keep working with and learning from great mentors in Coach Tambroni, Coach Toner, and Coach Doctor. I can't wait to get to work in the new role as we prepare for the 2014 season."
"Our staff is thrilled with the recent hire of David Shriver as our director of lacrosse operations," Tambroni said. "He has been instrumental in our programs progress over the past two years as a volunteer assistant and he will continue to help our program grow in his newly hired role. We feel very fortunate to have him represent Penn State lacrosse for another year."
Shriver was a four-year letter winner at Georgetown where he was elected captain his senior year.
In high school, the Baltimore native helped lead the Boys' Latin School to the 2006 MIAA "A" Conference title and a national championship with a perfect 21-0 record. He earned the program's Gelston Cup, which was presented for unique contributions to the team.
A three-sport athlete, Shriver also garnered the Kelly Award for Devotion to Boys' Latin Athletics and the Team Spirit Award in basketball.
Shriver also played one season at the Salisbury School, compiling 46 points (36g, 10a) in 2007.
