As the only lacrosse goalie to ever win an NCAA national championship (with Princeton), FIL World Championship (with Team USA), and an MLL championship (Baltimore Bayhawks), there’s no question Trevor Tierney is one of the greatest goalies to ever lace ’em up.
Trevor was a two-time All-American, Academic All-American and 2001 NCAA Goalie of the Year at Princeton University, where he won two Division I National Championships.
Trevor then went on to be named All-World Goalie in the 2002 ILF World Championships in Perth, Australia. He also played for Team USA in 2006, when the team won a silver medal in the ILF Championships.
In 2009, Trevor joined his father Bill Tierney at the University of Denver and coached there for four seasons. He was instrumental in helping lead the Pioneers to two NCAA Final Fours as he worked with the defense and goalies.
In 2012, he was inducted into the New Jersey Lacrosse Hall of Fame.
In this conversation we explore how Trevor developed his unique style of goalie play and how he approaches the mental side of the lacrosse goalie position.

Lacrosse is my passion! The game has given me so much and this blog is my way of giving back to the lax community. Specifically the most bad a$$ part of that community - the goalies! After learning to play goalie from scratch, I wanted to create a site where I could share what I learned with others so they too can become champions in the crease and in life.
