The UConn Men’s Lacrosse program is proud to announce that Henry Peterson has joined the Husky coaching staff as an assistant coach. Peterson, a 2012 UConn graduate, has been an important member of the Men’s Lacrosse program for the last three years.

“Henry did a great job for us last year as a senior midfielder. I think he will be an asset to our coaching staff and program” said second year Head Coach Paul Scordato. “Because he was part of last years successful season and is familiar with our systems and players he can help us continue to grow as a program” Scordato added.

A three year starter at Hall High School in West Hartford, CT Coach Peterson was Team Captain, Team MVP and an All-Conference member. He also participated in the Connecticut Senior All-Star game. “Lacrosse has been a big part of my life since I was in 4th grade” said Peterson. Coach Peterson matriculated at Eastern Connecticut State University where he played lacrosse for a Warriors program that won the Little East Conference and advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament.

Peterson transferred to UConn his Sophomore year and instantly "took on a leadership role" according to Scordato. Peterson's primary responsibilities will include assisting in offensive game planning as well as practice preparation and travel coordination.
