A familiar face will return to Loyola Blakefield, as the Dons hired 2004 graduate Ben Rubeor in late August to take over the as the school’s head lacrosse coach and assistant director of admissions.

Thirteen-year head coach Jack Crawford resigned in August, forcing the school to find a new leader for its lacrosse program. Rubeor has big shoes to fill, with Crawford having won three titles during his tenure at Loyola.

As a student at Loyola, Rubeor earned the Ensign C. Markland Kelly, Jr. Award, given to the state of Maryland’s top high school lacrosse player, and was a two-time Baltimore Sun All-Metro selection. During his senior season, he scored 43 goals and tallied 23 assists.

After graduating from Loyola, Rubeor attended Virginia and was a three-time All-American, helping the team win a national championship in 2006. Rubeor previously worked as the head lacrosse coach at St. Mary’s High School for three years.

While at St. Mary’s, Rubeor compiled a 29-18 overall record, and this past year, he led the Saints to a 12-6 record and their first championship since 1996. He was also named national Coach of the Year by USA Today.

In 2008, the Long Island Lizards drafted Rubeor, where he played for one season. He now plays for the Chesapeake Bayhawks.

“I can’t wait to meet the players, the families, and the coaches and to begin the journey that is the 2016 lacrosse season,” Rubeor said in a release by the school. “I love this school. It has done so much for me. There is a lot of work to do, and it begins now.”
