Meet our Box Coach, Mark Burnett

Coach Burnett signing autographs while with the Charlotte Copperheads

 

PSL is proud to introduce our Box Head Coach, Mark Burnett, who will be running our PGHBOXLAX leagues and new PSL Travel Box teams and leading our Box Skills clinics.  There is no one more qualified to teach the game of box lacrosse to our local players than Coach Burnett.  With Mark's depth of expertise there is no need for us to “import” professional box players to teach local players for one session at a time - we know the box game!  Mark is a proud Pittsburgh resident and is very passionate about growing the game of box lacrosse in our area.

Read about Mark’s box lacrosse experience below:

Coach Burnett grew up just outside of Toronto, Ontario and began playing lacrosse at the age of five. Mark won four Provincial box lacrosse championships with the Whitby Warriors.   He played three years in “Jr. B” for the Clarington Green Gaels, winning the OLA (Ontario Lacrosse Association) Jr. B Most Valuable Defensive Player award in 2007.  Mark continued to play for two more years in “Jr. A” for the Whitby Warriors. More recently, Coach Burnett played four years in the Major Series Lacrosse (Sr. A) in Ontario for the Ajax Rock and Oakville Rock.

In 2011, he was drafted by the Toronto Rock of the National Lacrosse League and in 2012 played for the Charlotte Copperheads in the Professional Lacrosse League. Mark has also been a player coach for the Pittsburgh Octane in the CILL.
