Camp Director Keith Euker
Keith Euker returns for his fourth season at the helm after taking over the men’s lacrosse program in 2018.View Keith Euker's Bio ⟩
After a three-win debut campaign, Euker doubled his squad’s win total each of the last two seasons.
He came to McDaniel after spending the two years as the top assistant at Denison. In his two years there, the Big Red compiled a 32-5 record and top-20 rankings in both seasons.
In his first year, Euker was part of the most successful season in Denison lacrosse history, winning the North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) and advancing to the NCAA Div. III quarterfinals. The 2014 squad set program records for wins (19), goals (320) and assists (189) and led the nation in scoring defense, allowing just 5.8 goals per game. The offense (16.0 gpg) and faceoff unit (67.8 win percentage) both ranked fifth nationally.
In 2015, the Big Red finished fifth in Division III in scoring margin (7.7 gpg), 16th in points per game (21.9 ppg) and 19th in scoring defense (6.8 gpg).
In his two seasons in Granville, Euker coached 18 All-NCAC honorees, including the 2014 Rookie of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year, and five USILA All-Americans.
Prior to his arrival at the Division III level, Euker spent two years as the goalie coach at the University of Michigan. As part of the staff for the Wolverines’ inaugural season at the Division I level, he coached the goalies. In 2013, he coached freshman keeper Gerald Logan to a national-best 15.07 saves per game and Eastern College Athletic Conference All-Rookie team honors.
Prior to his time in Ann Arbor, Euker spent two years at Missouri (MCLA) as its head coach. Euker guided the squad to a 21-11 record in two years and was named Great Rivers Lacrosse Coach of the Year in 2011. He coached three Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association All-Americans and produced 17 all-conference honorees, including the 2011 Offensive Player of the Year.
A Baltimore native, Euker returns to his home state. He was a first-team All-Metro selection as a senior at Loyola Blakefield before playing his collegiate career at Loyola under legendary coach Dave Cottle. As a senior, he helped the Greyhounds to a No. 1 national ranking and NCAA semifinal appearance.
Euker graduated from Loyola in 1999 with a bachelor of arts in communication with a concentration in public relations.
