Dylan Sheridan joined the Pioneer men’s lacrosse program as the volunteer assistant for the 2011 season and has since then been promoted to the second assistant under head coach Bill Tierney.
In his three seasons with the Pioneers, Sheridan has been responsible for working with the face-off group as well as managing the substitution box during games.
His work with face-off corps resulted in a No. 15 national ranking with a .563 win percentage at the conclusion of the 2011 season, a significant increase from their No. 36 ranking in 2010. At the end of the 2012 season, Sheridan’s face-off group was ranked No. 5 in the nation with a .591 winning percentage.
Sheridan’s impact on the Pioneers’ face-off group resulted in Chase Carraro being named 2012 Eastern College Athletic Conference Specialist of the Year, six Specialist of the Week honors and a USILA Second Team All-American selection. Sheridan helped Carraro finish the 2012 season ranked No. 8 in the nation with a .604 face-off winning percentage.
Despite an injury plagued face-off corps during the 2013 season, Sheridan’s efforts helped the Pioneers to a No. 23 national ranking for face-off winning percentage (.523) and a No. 14 final ranking for graduating senior Chase Carraro, who finished the 2013 season with a .578 face-off winning percentage.
Sheridan signed as a free agent with the Denver Outlaws in the summer of 2012. He was also recently named the Tournament Director for the Adrenaline Shootout (Elite) and the Adrenaline High Rollers. His work with the Denver Elite program has also led to him to be promoted to Director of College Placement.

Prior to his time at LVC, Sheridan served as an assistant at Pfeiffer University (DII). Sheridan also has a wealth of experience coaching international lacrosse, having served as a director for the USA Starz program.
