Men’s Lacrosse Adds Tony Gray to Staff
Arlington, Va. – Marymount University’s men’s lacrosse program added Tony Gray as an assistant coach for the 2012 season, announced head coach Jon Reynolds this week. Gray, a former two-time Division III All-American, brings over 17 years of coaching experience and an established coaching resume from the local prep ranks to the Saints sidelines.
“Tony is a tremendous addition to our coaching staff here at Marymount,” Reynolds said. “He has one of the best offensive minds in the game and gives us a new dynamic on that side of the ball.”
Gray spent eight seasons as the head varsity coach at nearby Oakton High School while overseeing all aspects of the varsity, junior varsity and freshman programs from 2001-08.
Under his tutelage, the Cougars won three consecutive State and Region titles from 2003-05 and five-straight District titles from 2001-05. Putting together a 109-35 record, Gray won more games than any other Virginia High School League AAA Northern Region program over that span and was tabbed Concorde District Coach of the Year in 2005.
While at Oakton, Gray also spent two years as the head coach of the Iroquois Nationals Under-19 team. The squad went on to finish third and earn a bronze medal at the 2008 Under-19 World Lacrosse Championships.
Prior to his time at Oakton, Gray coached on the youth level and served as an assistant coach at Marshall High School before starting the varsity program at nearby Wakefield High school for the 2000 season. With the Warriors, he went 5-8 with a team that had only four players with prior lacrosse experience. Gray collected National District Coach of the Year honors for his efforts.
A two-time All-American midfielder in 1993 and 1994, Gray earned his Bachelor of Arts in Economics with a minor in American Studies from Hobart College in 1995. He also played on the Iroquois National team from 1990-98, serving as a team captain for the 1998 squad.
