Johns Hopkins Legend Brian Carcaterra on Developing Confidence in the Cage – LGR Episode 159


On today’s episode of the Lax Goalie Rat Podcast Coach Damon sits down to chat with former Johns Hopkins All-American and New York Lizards goalie Brian Carcaterra.

Brian had a legendary career at Hopkins winning the Ensign C. Markland Kelly award in 1998, which is given to the nation’s best goalie and was named a 3x All-American during his time as a Blue Jay.

Known as one of the most exciting goalies in college lacrosse for his fearless ventures from the goal, Carcaterra helped lead the Blue Jays to two Final Four appearances during his time at Homewood Field. 

He is ranked second in school history with 689 career saves.

Brian’s first experience with lacrosse came when he was 7 years old where like many youngest siblings, Brian’s brothers, Paul and Steve, told him to get in the net with an attack stick and no pads to face shot.

Brian credits a lot of his development as a lacrosse play to the lessons he learned from his older brothers, who helped him instill the mental fortitude needed to be an elite goalie.

Growing up in Yorktown, NY, Carcaterra didn’t have to go far to find iconic figures of the game to learn from. Carcaterra spent his childhood years traipsing the sidelines of Charlie Murphy Field learning from legends of the game such as Rick Beardsley, Roy Colsey, Tim Nelson.

After finishing up at Hopkins Brian was drafted by the Long Island Lizards in the inaugural draft in the 6th round. 

He helped lead the Lizards to the MLL Championship Game in the 2002 season.

After taking some time off, Carcaterra returned to the MLL during the 2018 season after being selected in the Supplemental draft by the Lizards at the age of 40. He would go on the make the Lizards starting roster and serve as the primary backup to Drew Adams.

Brian joins the show today to talk about his family, his time at Hopkins, making an MLL comeback at the age of 40, and much more!
