"To be able to bring a guy like John Keysor to our program as volunteer assistant coach, especially at this point in the season, is just tremendous," Towers said. "He has obviously dominated this sport at every level as a player, but it's his knowledge of the game and his ability to communicate it that makes him a natural as a coach."
Keysor was a four-year letterwinner at Hofstra, playing midfielder from 2003-06. In his four years there, he tallied 69 goals and 55 assists for 124 points. He was featured as an NCAA player of the week, was named a second team All-American and first team all-conference in his final season with the Pride. Keysor went on to play two seasons in Major League Lacrosse (MLL), one with the Baltimore Bayhawks and the other with the San Francisco Dragons.
