West Coast and National Girls Director


My name is Sam Farrell. I grew up in Severna Park, Maryland. I played lacrosse at the University of Florida where I was part of the inaugural program.. While at Florida, I was a four year starter,  2x All American, won three conference championships and attended 1 NCAA final four. I graduated in 2013 and continued my education at Notre Dame of Maryland University where I got my masters in Elementary and Special Education. I moved to San Diego in 2014 with my best friend, Kitty Cullen, and we started the girls side of Mad Dog on the West Coast. We started with one team and have built it into what it is today.
