Rochester Rattlers head coach B.J. O’Hara and midfielder Andrew Spack will be participating in the Rochester Knighthawks’ Legends Night on Saturday April 9, 2011 at the Blue Cross Arena. Both will be available to sign autographs near the Knighthawks ticket booth from 6:15 PM to 7:00PM. The Knighthawks will host the Buffalo Bandits at 7:35 PM.
B.J. O’Hara returns to the Rochester Rattlers as head coach in 2011. This will be his seventh season as a head coach in Major League Lacrosse. In 2004, O’Hara took over the reins of the Rattlers and led the team to the MLL playoffs. The Rattlers made the playoffs again in 2005, 2007, and 2008, bringing the 2008 MLL Championship Trophy to Rochester with hard fought wins over then-defending champion Philadelphia in the semi-finals and Denver in the Championship Game. O’Hara’s five year coaching record in the MLL is 38 wins and 24 losses.
Midfielder Andrew Spack is one of four players from the 2008 Rochester Rattlers Major League Lacrosse Championship team returning to the roster in 2011. Spack played two seasons with the Rattlers before he joined the Rochester Knighthawks in the National Lacrosse League. Spack was a four-year starter in midfield for the Loyola Greyhounds before coming to Rochester to begin his professional career.
