Head Coach- Tom O'Leary
The 2020-2021 season will mark Coach Tom O’Leary’s eleventh year at the helm of the Servite Lacrosse program becoming one of the longest tenured lacrosse coaches in Orange County. Following the 2018 season, Coach O'Leary was named US Lacrosse Orange County Coach of the Year. He has lead the Friars to their forth consecutive playoff appearance, despite annually playing one of the toughest schedules in SS-CIF. For a third year in a row the Friars spent the entire season ranked in the Top 10 while breaking Servite school records and experiencing program firsts.
Coach O'Leary grew up back east on Long Island, New York. He is a 2001 graduate from Huntington High School, in which he was a 3-year varsity soccer player and 2-year varsity lacrosse player. He was recruited to play soccer out of high school. Coach O'Leary attended Southern New Hampshire University in the fall of 2001. After one year in the soccer program he aided the school’s cross country program in winning the 2002 New Hampshire Small School State Championship. In the fall of 2003, Coach O'Leary joined the Southern New Hampshire lacrosse program. For two years he consecutively ran cross country and played lacrosse for Southern New Hampshire until 2004 when he dedicated all his time to the lacrosse program.
A two time captain of the lacrosse program at Southern New Hampshire, Coach O'Leary started his first two seasons at midfield before moving to defense. He played in 36 out of 38 games over his first three seasons before being sidelined due to injury his last season in 2006.
After graduating from Southern New Hampshire with a Bachelors of Science and a Masters in Organizational Leadership, he was asked to return to help coach. For two seasons Coach O'Leary ran the defense and the strength and conditioning for the program and aided in the teams NCAA Division II break through into the top 10. In addition to coaching at the collegiate level, Coach O'Leary was invited to two tryouts at the professional level with the opportunity to compete for a position on the Washington Bayhawks and Chicago Machine in 2006.
In 2008, Coach O'Leary made the trip west to join former college teammate and now Assistant Varsity Coach Mike Hutnick at JSerra High School. From 2009-2010 he aided in winning the lacrosse programs first trinity title, a division two championship, and a division one playoff birth.
Coach O'Leary's passion for lacrosse goes beyond currently coaching at Servite. He does personal training for local high school/ collegiate players, and is the director of Angel City Lacrosse. Coach O'Leary looks to make Servite a perennial contender for CIF-SS championship. Since taking over the program in 2010, over seventy percent of Servite’s senior lacrosse players, go on to four years colleges to play lacrosse. With lacrosse finally being recognized as a sanctioned CIF sport, the 2021 season sets to be one of the toughest schedules in program history, but is a direct reflection of the talent within the program.
Coach O’Leary could not be successful at Servite without the loving support of his wife Sandra, young sons Jameson and Jaxson and mentorship from former coach and father Tom Sr.

SOUTHERN NEW HAMPSHIRE UNIVERSITY
Although I am just now beginning my college experience, with one year past since I last stepped on the campus of Servite High School as a student, it has become evident to me in these last few months that many aspects of my life have been significantly impacted by the time I spent on the Servite Lacrosse team. Looking back at the countless hours I have spent on Courage Field, warming up for practice and gearing up for games, I can’t help but feel grateful for the prominent leadership and prevalent encouragement that is indicative of the Servite Lacrosse coaching staff. I can admit that throughout my time at Servite, I have heavily relied on the invaluable experience of Coach O’Leary and that through his leadership I have seen the product of dedication and genuine spirit in the success of the lacrosse program. With the powerful foundation of a faith-based education and the instillment of a brotherhood that will forever be my home, I am proud to reflect on my Servite experience.
This year, I have had the opportunity to play in my first college season of Division II lacrosse at Southern New Hampshire University. In just a few weeks, I have been able to implement the values and work ethics that I have cultivated through my time at Servite High School with confidence. Because of the strong culture that defines Servite Lacrosse, it is guaranteed that every player will leave the team better equipped to face, head on, the challenges that lie before them in higher education. Not only have I been shaped as a student and player by the time I spent as a Friar, but I also now see that I have made considerable steps toward becoming the person I strive to be in life. Thank you to Servite High School for believing in a program that holds such a special place in my heart and to the many people that have turned a passion for the game into an adventure that does good for each player on the field.

The influence of Servite High School and the lacrosse team have helped form me into the person I am today. Without a doubt, Servite delivered on its promise of preparing me for college and providing a seamless transition to life at the university level. Servite has taught me valuable life skills, like promptness, communication, and leadership techniques. Through Servite High School and the lacrosse team, I have met my best friends and have built connections with those around me. Entering Servite High School as a freshman I was a basketball player, however when I had the opportunity to become a member of the lacrosse team I took it. Joining the lacrosse program at Servite has proved to be one of the best decisions that I have made. This decision has provided me with the opportunity to participate in lacrosse at the NCAA level but more importantly, it has allowed me to attend a college that meets my academics needs and learning style. The academic and athletic experiences that Servite High School has set me up with a bright future and have introduced me to people who have become life-long friends.

I joined the lacrosse team and it changed the course of my life. When I joined during my sophomore year, I had no idea what I was doing. I was a greenhorn on junior varsity and little did I know that in three years I would be starting on a college lacrosse team as a pr-med/finance double major with my tuition paid for. Coach O’Leary definitely had a project on his hands when I joined the team - one thing I knew I brought to the table was my athleticism from football, and that was about it. Thankfully Coach O’Leary was patient and put relentless effort into my skill development and my Lax IQ. Coming from an 11-year football background, I was worried I wouldn’t be able to pick up the game that my teammates have been playing their whole lives, but O’Leary put the time and effort into me, and in doing so changed my future. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and being coached by Tom O’Leary since my sophomore year. He has exponentially helped my growth as a lacrosse player and also as a person. He is always there if you need to talk about anything, and always willing to help you improve your lacrosse game. He taught me the importance of community service, determination, the necessity of the other and how to be a man in complex situations in my life. Throughout the years, I not only gained an extraordinary coach but received a lifetime friend.
At Servite, I was able to fully comprehend what it means to be a competitive athlete. Along with my lacrosse abilities, I learned many life lessons and became a far better and more capable person, both socially and mentally. Through playing for Servite, I have made friendships that will last a lifetime and learned skills that I will use in all aspects of life. I had the opportunity to travel and get exposure as an elite athlete, as well as forge bonds with my teammates that will never be broken. Also, I was awarded all-league my senior year, recruited to play for a college lacrosse team, had my tuition paid for, started my freshman year in college, and became one of the top players in my conference. I undoubtedly would not have been able to accomplish all these things without the help of Tom O’Leary and the Servite Lacrosse Team.

Servite is a one-of-a-kind experience. It is the most challenging, yet most rewarding experiences one could have in high school. I would not be where I am today if it weren't for this school. Servite, and Servite Lacrosse especially, pushed me to be a better leader and a better man. the experience challenged me in every aspect of my life, but the brother's I gained from my time at Servite are brothers for life. I am currently a Junior at the University of San Diego majoring in Environmental and Ocean Studies. I am in the Naval ROTC program and a captain on the USD lacrosse team. None of this would have been possible if it weren't for the phenomenal preparation I received at Servite and while playing lacrosse there.

As a college prep school, Servite could not have prepared me better for the rigors and challenges of college. The level of academics gave me an accurate representation of the difficulty level of collegiate academics, and in some cases, outstripped the difficulty of some of the courses I have taken during my time at Colorado State University. Servite also shaped me as a person, in the sense of instilling in me the values and teachings of the school, which I still carry to this day. I would not be the person I am today without my experience and lessons learned at Servite.
In terms of athletics, Servite was able to provide a high-quality experience of being part of a competitive, serious team; standards that I have put into practice now that I am playing at the next level. Servite also taught me effective time management skills, especially when it came to balancing schoolwork with athletics, and the understanding that I am a student-athlete; student first, athlete second. The structuring of the athletic programs at Servite is modeled after collegiate programs, which gave me valuable insight into how to succeed in such a program.
Servite built me as a man, a student, and an athlete, and gave me the tools and confidence needed to succeed at the next level.
