Unterstein Added to Hofstra Coaching Staff
from press release
HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - Hofstra alumnus Kevin Unterstein, who has spent the past two seasons serving as an assistant coach under Bill Tierney at both Princeton and Denver, has been named to the Pride coaching staff, Hofstra Head Men's Lacrosse Coach Seth Tierney announced today.
A 2008 graduate of Hofstra with a degree in sociology, Unterstein enjoyed a stellar playing career as a short-stick defensive middie from 2005 through 2008. As a senior he recorded a team-leading 70 ground balls while helping to guide the Pride to the Colonial Athletic Association title and the NCAA Tournament. For his efforts, he was an All-CAA first team selection, and was named the CAA Defensive Player of the Year, and the CAA Championship Tournament Most Valuable Player.
In 2007 as a junior, Unterstein earned USILA All-American honorable mention honors, and was named to the All-CAA second team as well as the All-CAA Tournament team. As a sophomore in 2006, Kevin, his twin brother Mike, and their older brother Chris combined to help lead Hofstra to a 17-2 record, a No. 2 national ranking and a No. 3 seed in the NCAA tournament. He was also named to the All-CAA Rookie Team as a freshman.
Following graduation in 2008, he became an assistant under Bill Tierney at Princeton, working with the defense and face-off specialists. He would follow Tierney to Denver to help coordinate the Pioneers' man-down unit and work specifically with the defensive midfielders and work with assistant coach Trevor Tierney with the defense and the overall face-off game.
A native of Shoreham, N.Y., he was a high school All-American at Shoreham-Wading River High, where he was part of four Suffolk County championships and one state championship.
Unterstein replaces Matt Rewkowski, who accepted an assistant coaching position at Cornell in June.
