Glen Miles of San Clemente High School
Greg Guy of El Toro High School
Baltimore, MD, March 20, 2008 – Head lacrosse coach of San Clemente High School, Glen Miles and El Toro High School head lacrosse coach Greg Guy have been named to coach the West Regional team in this summer’s adidas National High School Lacrosse Classic.
Coach Miles has an impressive lacrosse background. Recently inducted into the Greater Baltimore Chapter of U.S. Lacrosse Hall of Fame, Glen Miles was a three-time All-American at the U.S. Naval Academy who was named the nation’s top midfielder in 1986 and the only Navy lacrosse player to receive the Lt. J.G Donald MacLaughlin Jr. Award named after the former Navy Lacrosse standout who was killed in 1966.
Upon graduation, Miles was named as an alternate to Team USA in ’86, a rare honor at that time for a college player. Four years later he would earn his way onto Team USA and helped lead it to the world title over Team Canada in Perth, Australia. In addition to coaching at San Clemente High School, Glen Miles is the Director of Victory Lacrosse. Victory lacrosse is 501 c3 Lacrosse organization that focuses on lacrosse skill development as well as the character and leadership development of our youth.
Greg Guy, Orange County Coach of the Year, brings an impressive coaching background with record of 61-6. He directed El Toro High School to the 2007 California State Club Lacrosse Championship. A consistent winner, Coach Guy’s teams have reached the 2007, 2006, 2005 and 2004 Orange County lacrosse semifinals. He was the USA West U-19 Team assistant coach in 2006.
“I’m honored to be selected to coach such a revolutionary team. Being a product of Southern California lacrosse, I’m proud to be an ambassador for the sport. I’m also very excited to showcase Southern California talent on a national level to prove that lacrosse is no longer an “east-coast sport” says Coach Guy.
Greg Guy views the inaugural adidas Lacrosse event as a meaningful for the players. “This event has the potential to benefit hundreds of players nationwide. It will not only help players enhance their level of play through competition with the nation’s best, but will also help the recruiting process. One of the major drawbacks to California lacrosse is the lack of exposure to the best schools. This event gives schools a chance to see players from throughout the country, and potentially give students access to those schools and lacrosse programs.”
