Considered a pioneer in California lacrosse, Enea has been active in the sport for over 25 years. He grew up in Monterey, Calif., playing high school football, baseball and lacrosse at Robert Louis Stevenson School in Pebble Beach. A starter for Drew (N.J.) University, Enea led the Rangers to the NCAA tournament before transferring to Cal-Berkeley. He helped the Bears win a pair of WCLL championships while twice being selected all-conference. Enea was also a two-time captain and voted "Most Inspirational Player" by his teammates.
In February of 1995, Lacrosse Magazine featured a cover of Enea and his Cal classmates with the title "Is Cal the Best in the West?" Enea helped Cal post a 56-5 record during his time in Berkeley.
Enea represented the West in the Division I North-South Senior All-Star game hosted at Johns Hopkins. He was drafted in the third round of the Major Indoor Lacrosse League, where he played one season before launching his coaching career.
Enea's hiring at Oklahoma will mark his 20th season coaching lacrosse. He began his career as an assistant at his high school alma mater. He has also been the head coach at Santa Clara University along with prep head coaching positions at Santa Catalina, Carmel and Palma High Schools. He also helped found numerous programs to introduce thousands of kids to the sport. Enea has developed over 150 high school and college All-Americans and was selected US Lacrosse Coach of the Year in 2013.
Enea founded BraveHeart lacrosse, a training center for players, coaches and officials. BraveHeart lacrosse is based on the principles of honor, integrity and passion.
