Interview with Hopkins Hall of Fame Goalie Larry Quinn – LGR Episode #94

Listen on Apple Podcast

A few weeks ago I interviewed Scott Bacigalupo who is a Hall of Fame goalie. This week it’s another Hall of Fame Goalie – Larry Quinn.

Larry Quinn was inducted into the national Lacrosse Hall of Fame in the year 2000.

While on the Johns Hopkins Blue Jays his team went to the finals every single year of his collegiate career. Not too bad. They took home the trophy 2 of those years – 1984 and 1985.

We discuss those years quite extensively and its interesting to note the expectation of national championships that went with being a Blue Jay in the early 80’s.

Quinn twice won the Enners Award as the nation’s top player and he also won the C. Markland Kelly Award for collegiate goalie of the year twice in 84 and then again in 85.

In both Hopkins championships in 84 and 85 Larry Quinn was the NCAA Tournament MVP, a first team All-American and the Kelly Award winner.

His nickname was the Door and he shut the door on a lot of great shooters.

After graduating from Hopkins, Quinn took his talents to Team USA. He was the wall on the team who won gold in 1986, again in 1990, then again in 1994. Not too bad.

Post playing days Quinn worked with the Hopkins goalies and was a Director for US Lacrosse (now USA Lacrosse).

In this interview I bring up some clips of the 1984 championship and we get some behind the scenes analysis from Quinn. Including what happened on the famous diving save from the 1984 championship game.

Enjoy this conversation with Larry Quinn!
