Jason Childs Introduced as Shorter's New Head Lacrosse Coach

As a student-athlete, Childs was a four-year starter and two-year team captain as an attackman and midfielder at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Penn. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in American Studies in 2001.

Childs had a stellar playing career for the Red Devils, twice serving as the team's captain and earning the program's "Unsung Hero Award." He set a school and Centennial Conference record for assists in a game with 11, while also posting the second-best single-game scoring performance of 12 points (11 assists/1 goal), on March 22, 2000 versus Susquehanna University.

Childs left Dickinson ranking fourth in career assists (64) and eighth on the school's all-time scoring list with 108 points (44 goals/64 assists).

He prepped at the St. Paul School for Boys in Baltimore, Md., where he was a three-sport athlete, competing in lacrosse, soccer and basketball.

Childs is married to the former Mary Foss of Rome, Ga. The couple has three children, Elizabeth Ann, Jackson and Katy.

Shorter's men's lacrosse program opened its first season of competition in 2011. Under Young, the Hawks went 15-12 in their first two years, including an 8-9 campaign last season.
