Priskey Named Assistant Lacrosse Coach at Thiel

GREENVILLE, Pa. Tim Priskey will join the Thiel men's lacrosse program as an assistant coach, first-year head coach Jeff Arneson announced Thursday.

Priskey will assist in the recruitment of new student-athletes and retention of current players, aid in the implementation of practice and game plans, work with video editing software, and oversee the development of the Tomcat goalkeepers while running the defensive unit.

A 2010 graduate of Wheeling Jesuit University, Priskey was a four-year member of the Cardinals lacrosse program. He comes to Thiel after serving as the goalkeeper coach at his alma mater, De La Salle Collegiate High School (Warren, Mich.), during the 2011 season.

"We're excited to have Tim join us as a member of the coaching staff. I played with Tim at Wheeling throughout my collegiate career and he was always one of the hardest working players on our team. He will do a great job here and I look forward to building a strong athletic and academic program with him," said Arneson.

The men's lacrosse squad opens its 2012 season on Feb. 17 when they play host to Albion College (7:00 p.m.).
