Brock Armour joins men's lacrosse coaching staff
Former Towson standout midfielder Brock Armour has joined the JU men’s lacrosse staff as an assistant coach. Armour will work with JU head coach Guy Van Arsdale in recruitment and development and joins a staff that includes assistants Jacob Baxter and Adam Silva.
"We are excited to have Brock as an addition to our staff, as he brings a great deal of enthusiasm and knowledge to our program,” Van Arsdale said. “He will be a great asset in helping our players develop their game at this level and his connections in recruiting will continue to help us draw top student-athletes to the program.”
Armour spent last season as an assistant coach at Bridgton Academy in Bridgton, Maine. He also worked as an admissions assistant and a history teacher at the school.
Armour played four seasons for Towson, appearing in 52 games from 2007-10. As a senior, he served as a team captain and scored four goals in 15 games, helping the Tigers to a 4-1 conference record.
“Brock’s knowledge of the game, especially at the offensive end, gives him the ability to be a coach on the field for us,” Towson head coach Tony Seaman said at the time.
Following a stellar college career, Armour was drafted by the Boston Blazers in the fourth round of the 2010 National Lacrosse League Entry Draft. He was the 36th overall pick and the 14th player in Towson history to be selected in the NLL Entry Draft.
Off the field, Armour was part of the Proud Athletes Who Serve organization. The student-athlete initiative focused on community outreach, primarily with inner-city programs. Armour also participated in fundraising for youth groups and organizing aspects of the Special Olympics.
Besides playing for the Tigers, Armour captained the summer-league Burnaby Lakers of the Western Lacrosse Association from 2006-08.
Born on May 9, 1987 in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, Armour graduated from Towson with a bachelor’s degree in history.
