Darryl Delia, Owner

Coach Delia was hired on January 7, 2011 to start the Men's Lacrosse program at Albertus Magnus College.

In 2017, the men's lacrosse team finished the season with an overall mark of 3-12 and finished ninth in the GNAC. Two of the Falcons' wins came at home, including the teams' first season opener win on February 24, 2017 against Daniel Webster, while the third win came on the road at Becker. 

Throughout the spring, Delia's crew set numerous personal bests, including junior Jack Kerner who recorded his 500th career save against Mount Ida. Along with Kerner, Greg Buck also recorded another milestone as he ended his tenure with the Falcons with a program-best 200 points. Senior Justin Bennet, who was named to the All-Conference Second Team, leaves his name all over the record book as he leads the program in ground balls, man-down goals and face-off wins.

It was a record-setting season for the Albertus Magnus College men's lacrosse team in 2016 as the Falcons ended the year a 4-10 overall record and finished eighth in the GNAC. The team set a new school record with four wins as AMC scored victories against Anna Maria, Wheelock, Emerson and Mount St. Vincent.

During the spring of 2016, the Falcons had two different players honored by the league with weekly accolades. Following the campaign, junior attackmen Greg Buck earned All- GNAC distinction. Under Delia's tutelage, Buck also became the first player in program history to score 100 career goals. 

In 2015, the program's second year in existence, Delia led the Falcons to three victories, including wins over Mitchell, Anna Maria and Lyndon State.  He also coached the program's first-ever Academic All-American in Mike Choiniere, who was ranked in the top-five of the country in scoring. Choiniere was also named to the GNAC All-Conference First Team and was named to the Capital One Academic All-District At-Large Team for Division III District 2. Additionally, Choiniere was named to the NEILA East-West Senior All-Star Game.

He led the Falcons in their first varsity season in 2014 as the program picked up three victories on the year.  On March 20, 2014, the program picked up its first-ever win with a 26-13 victory over Lyndon State on its home turf field.  The Falcons' first Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) victory came on March 26, 2014 with a 10-6 win over Anna Maria College, also at home in New Haven. 

All three of the Falcons' wins in 2014 came on their home Celentano Field.

Delia coached sophomore Mike Choiniere (Bethany, Conn.) to receiving the program's first-ever league and regional honors as he was named both the GNAC and ECAC Offensive Player of the Week on multiple occasions before earning GNAC All-Conference Second Team honors.

Twice during Delia’s tenure at Yale, the Bulldogs’ offense was ranked in the top-10, nationally. While at Yale, Delia was one of only a handful of coaches nationally to serve as a selector for the United States World Team in 2000.
