Coach Teddy Hicks begins his sixth season as head coach for the Cal State San Marcos Cougars in 2018. Coach Hicks has over fifteen years of experience in playing and coaching lacrosse at an elite level. He was a multi-year captain and all conference selectee for the Boise State University Broncos where he still holds a number of team records. Upon graduating from Boise State, Coach Hicks was invited to play with team Gatorade and received an invite to tryout for the now disbanded Los Angeles Riptide.
His coaching career began at Borah and Timberline High Schools in Boise Idaho, as part of a staff that took the Timberline Wolves to a State Championship. He was the head coach at Laguna Hills High school where he turned a losing program into the Sea View League champions in only his second year. At Laguna Hills Coach Hicks compiled a 29-11 record in two years and was voted “Coach of the Year” after his championship 2012 season in which he compiled a 21-2 record.
Coach Hicks states “ I really look forward to leading the Cal State San Marcos lacrosse program and taking it to the next level. San Diego County is undoubtedly the hot bed of lacrosse west of the Mississippi. We’re looking forward to tapping into that talent and turning San Marcos into a contender year in and year out. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of the program here.” Under Coach Hicks in 2015, San Marcos had the 3rd ranked offense in the country, made their second trip to the playoffs, and achieved a program-high mark for wins with 13.
