DLF & Lacrosse

Geneseo lax
Litzelman Memorial

After graduating from Geneseo, Don served as a volunteer assistant coach at Division I Colgate University and years later, coached his sons Donnie and Dalton’s travel teams. Shortly before passing, he expressed regret that he hadn’t become a teacher and coached high school lacrosse.

Because of Don, Geneseo lacrosse became a love of ours also. We not only truly enjoyed watching him put up amazing numbers, but those times on the hill also played a huge part in the forming of life-long relationships.

We annually present the Don Litzelman Award to the Attackman of the Year at both West Genesee and Geneseo. We also award a scholarship to a graduating West Genesee player. NCAA rules prohibit us from awarding one to a Geneseo player.

Please provide us feedback on your experience here. We’d love to hear successes that we can share and we need to know what we can improve. Please either click on the Contact Us button at the bottom of this page or email us at…. [email protected]. Thank you!!
