Drake Arnold

Offensive Coordinator

Coach Arnold will be taking the role as our new Offensive Coordinator, working alongside Coach Koppens and the rest of this years' staff. As a pioneering member of the St. Paul's Lacrosse Program and LSU Lacrosse Alumni, Drake brings a wealth of lacrosse knowledge to the Tigers. 

Coach Arnold comes to us after leading the Wolves' offense to a top-3 ranking and back to back Louisiana State Championship appearances, taking home a ring in one. A few things we know about Drake - his passion runs high and loves the game of lacrosse. We're more than eager to get to work our new Offensive Coordinator!

Chris Condon

Defensive Coordinator

Coach Condon has been a part of the LSU Lacrosse Family since the late 80's when he donned #9 for the purple and gold's defensive unit. As a player and now taking over as a Coach, Condon's love for LSU and the game of lacrosse never faded. 

The defensive aspect of the game is one that comes very familiar to Coach Condon, as he is ready to hit the ground running and begin preparing for the season ahead. Let's give Coach the warm Tiger 'welcome back' he deserves!

Lane Farrar

Face-Off Specialist

Lane Farrar, born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, grew up playing baseball and didn’t know the word lacrosse until Dutchtown High School formed its lacrosse team in 2010.


Inseparable from the community ever since, he started faceoff specific instruction through free clinics and private training while competing collegiately at Louisiana State University, where he served as captain and was selected three times all conference. 


After graduating in 2017, he stayed on at LSU as Assistant Coach, as well as joining For The Kids Lacrosse as 14U Head Coach and Position Coordinator for 10U through High School.
