WELCOME TO HARRITON COACH DESKO!!
The Harriton lacrosse community is excited to announce its new head boys lacrosse coach, Jeff Desko. Coach Desko assumes the role starting with the 2020 season.
Jeff Desko has an extensive background in lacrosse, not only as a player and coach, but also as part of a Syracuse lacrosse family (his father, uncle and cousin all played and/or coached there).
Jeff played lacrosse at Syracuse University, where he was an NCAA Championship Runner-up in 2013, Big East Champs in 2013, and ACC Champs in 2015 and 2016. Prior to playing for the Orange, Jeff played for Central Mass powerhouse St. John’s Shrewsbury where he was a 4 year Varsity player, team captain and All American.
More recently, Jeff has coached with the Laxachusetts Club program, Concord-Carlisle Youth Lacrosse and Red Tail Lacrosse. He has also coached at both Marlborough High School and Framingham High School, as well as Division 3 Becker College.
In addition, Jeff holds a Personal Training certification and has trained many athletes that are playing or committed to play college lacrosse at the Division 1 level.
"As a member of one of the more competitive leagues in the country, Harriton provides a new and exciting opportunity for me to continue building upon a rising program. We have a nice mix of solid senior leadership and young potential that could lead to not only a successful season but a promising future. The program will have a slightly different look and some new faces, but the energy and eagerness to improve that surround this program will help us take the next step as a complete Lacrosse Program."
