Bishop Ireton High School has hired Patrick Young as the new head coach of the varsity men’s lacrosse team. Patrick executed various tutoring programs for middle school and high school students over the past several years, and developed the first recreational lacrosse league in Prince George’s County.

“There are few times as an Athletic Director that you have the opportunity to hire a coach who plays professionally,” said Bryce Bevill. “His passion for developing young men will help not only our lacrosse program, but our school community as a whole.”
