Tim Lazorko is named Devon Prep soccer coach

Tredyffrin >> Devon Prep recently announced the hiring of Tim Lazorko as the Tides’ new soccer head coach. Lazorko is replacing Brian McKinney, who stepped down from the position to spend more time with his family.
The Tide is coming off winning the District 12 Championship and advancing to the PIAA state tournament for the first time in 20 years.
Lazorko said, “I am looking forward to building off of the successful season that Coach McKinney and the team accomplished last year. My main goal is to build a culture for the program that involves a positive, but competitive experience, both on and off the field, as well as an understanding of everyone working together towards one common goal.”
Lazorko played soccer collegiately at Saint Joseph’s University, where he was 2015 Southeastern Pennsylvania Coaches Association College Player of the Year. Lazorko played his high school soccer at Holy Ghost Prep. In high school he was a 2011 Regional All-American, as well as a two-time All-State, All-Area, and league MVP selection.
“Through my playing and coaching experiences, it is a priority of mine to use those to teach and guide these young men on how to become better soccer players, but also to enjoy and love the game,” said Lazorko. “This was an opportunity that I could not pass up and I cannot wait to get started.”
After college, Lazorko was an assistant coach at Cabrini, where the team won the CSAC regular season and the post season tournament. The team then went on to upset Rowan College for the first ever NCAA tournament win for Cabrini.
“I am very excited for this opportunity to be the head coach at Devon Prep,” said Lazorko. “Growing up in Northeast Philadelphia, I have been around and watched Catholic League soccer since I can remember. It is a privilege to now be the head of a soccer program in one of the best leagues in the country for high school sports.”
