Dave Mintzer

50 years ago in 1969 Dave Mintzer began three important aspects of his life:

First, he married the most patient and beautiful Kathy Laur Mintzer, who has given him 3 wonderful children and 6 talented grand children and allowed him coach this great game of lacrosse. Second, he began a 37 year tenure in the Baltimore City Public Schools teaching chemistry, biology, and health. Thirdly, he began coaching, starting at the University of Maryland freshmen team at a time when no freshman were eligible to participate at the NCAA level. 

Coaching continued at Edmondson HS in Baltimore City until 1982 where he won over 100 games and the MSA C conference championship.

In 1982 he began a 25 year career at CCBC Catonsville, winning over 200 games and attending the Junior College Final Four , four times. 

His Greatest accomplishment, however, was the number of student athletes who moved on to four year schools and ultimately became contributing members of society and husbands and fathers. It has always been Coach Mintzer’s philosophy to use lacrosse as a vehicle to teach life’s lessons about the importance of teamwork and perseverance.
