Super Bowl Exposure for Lacrosse

Tim Clark, secretary of the US Lacrosse Board of Directors and president of the Indiana Chapter of US Lacrosse, used his role as a volunteer with this weekend’s Super Bowl in Indianapolis to help shine the spotlight on lacrosse.

Clark, a former NCAA staff member who now works for the Indiana Youth Institute and is the boys' lacrosse coach at Park Tudor School, coordinated the Super Bowl Host Committee’s football and cheerleading clinic for area youth. He shared his lacrosse story on the host committee’s website - XLVI Faces. Clark recounted his high school days at Henninger High School, where the school came from nowhere to win a New York state championship.

Clark moved on to Hobart, helping the Statesmen win four consecutive NCAA Division III championships during their magical run of 12 consecutive titles. Clark eventually became the head coach at the College of Wooster in Ohio before going to work for the NCAA.

“Lacrosse is my volunteer work and my passion to give back as well because of my playing days and coaching career,” said Clark in the video. Check out the interview at http://www.xlvifaces.com/profile/22/Tim-Clark/
