By Coach Damon on July 25, 2019
At the age of 54, Rodney Rullman tried out the Bayhawks! Proving goalie knows no age limit. Although tell that to my old 39 year old body.
Back in his prime he won a national championship with Virginia in the 70’s and had a marvelous goalie career. A three time All-American, a Kelly Award (nation’s top goaltender) winner and tons of years of experience playing and coaching kids in net.
Many have called him one of the best goalie coaches in the world and in this conversation we get to tap his brain to see what goalie knowledge we can absorb.
In this podcast episode Roddy Rullman says his history of the position and was it was like to play goalie in the 70’s.
Gotta say there was some interesting goalie philosophies taught back in Roddy’s time.
Rodney Weapon of Choice
Get a load of this beauty! Rodney mentions in the episode he wasn’t very good at clears. Make more sense after looking this setup.
The exact wand used to win the 1972 championship with the University of Virginia. Only later at Virginia did Rullman switch over to using the 1st generation of plastic heads.
