Stony Brook's new men's lacrosse coach sits down for a chat

Andrew Watkins was named an assistant coach at Stony Brook on August 2011.  He's in his fifth season as an assistant coach with the Seawolves.

His defense emerged in 2015, allowing a little more than 10 goals per game.  Three Seawolves earned first team All-America East honors, including close defenseman Lucas Rock.

Watkins, a two-time team captain for Colgate under Jim Nagle, broke into coaching in 2011, working with the defense. The Raiders allowed only 8.13 goals last year, which ranked 13th nationally.

A Baltimore County native who started his final 31 games at close defense, Watkins was instrumental in leading Colgate to the Patriot League title and an NCAA Tournament berth in 2008. He led all defensemen with 33 ground balls and was the leader of a unit that allowed 8.74 goals and just eight man-up goals.
