Eric was my coach for 3 years at GW. He fostered an amazing sense of family and was fair in most of his decisions. He truly cared about his athletes off the water which was super refreshing.

He totally sold me (and plenty of othere athletes) during my recruiting process and during my freshman year I thought he was amazing until half way through my freshman year. I even ignored advice from older players on the team at first, but then came to realize everything they said was 100% true. Stay away and don't fall for his sales pitches, promises, and overall BS

I honestly think some of the positive reviews on here are fake, as evidenced by the fact that they didn't write anything. Eric comes across nice when you meet him, but it's a bait and switch. Once you're on his team, he will be manipulative and at times emotionally abusive. Because of him, I wish I never rowed

During recruiting, Eric is such a nice guy. Freshmen year was fine, but it went downhill from there. The team got worse each year, loads of drama, and practices were easier than high school teams. By the end, there was so much team fighting led by Eric that I couldn't wait to graduate. If I could do over, I would stay away from Eric (though GW was great).

Eric is a nice guy. Once you get to know him, though, he's like a used car salesmen. I think he truly believes in his "product" but ultimately he's pretty shady. Also, this program is basically walk-ons only. He can't take decent high schoolers and make them fast. So if you are competitive and want to win, go somewhere else. GW has one of the worst rowing programs in the country and I wish I would have rowed somewhere else
