Lars Tiffany’s lacrosse journey reached its peak on Memorial Day, when his Virginia team won its first national championship since 2011.
The title was a culmination of three years of building for Tiffany and the Cavaliers, who went from the ACC cellar to the pinnacle of college lacrosse. During his press conference, Tiffany was quick to pay homage to the roots of the game.
And it’s fitting. Tiffany grew up near the Onondaga reservation in Upstate New York, playing with Native Americans and working on his father’s bison farm. His love for lacrosse took him to Brown, where he played and later coached.
Through all of his coaching stops, Tiffany never lost his love for lacrosse. He speaks with Paul Carcaterra about what started it all, the inspiration from his parents, why he left Brown for Virginia and much more.
