The Maple Ridge Burrards are pleased to announce that Chris Gill has been appointed as the new coach for the 2014 season. As a player in the Western Lacrosse Association, Gill accumulated 482 goals and 351 assists in 282 games over 13 seasons. Gill’s teams made the playoffs nine times and he was a Mann Cup Finalist on two occasions. Chris also had a decorated NLL career with stops in Baltimore, Toronto, Vancouver, Colorado, Edmonton and Calgary. Along the way, Chris raised the Champion’s Cup three times and he recorded 557 points in 173 career NLL games, retiring from the NLL in 2010. “Chris’ craftiness around the crease will now transfer in his role as head coach. He interviewed very well and has some very creative plans to address some of our challenges from last season,” said Daren Fridge, Burrards General Manager. “We were looking for a dynamic leader with valuable experience at the highest level of lacrosse and Chris is exactly what we are seeking.”Chavez is an avid lacrosse player in Rochester and a journalist for the Democrat and Chronicle as well as a longtime Inside Lacrosse contributor.
