I played for Loftis for one year in Dallas. I have never hated playing lacrosse more in my life. He’s honestly one of the angriest men I’ve met. He berates players when they ask questions. Asked if my Hispanic teammate knew English. Tried to talk to players about their intimate lives. Could never justify his game plans through logic, but by stating that he was an assistant at providence once, and we’re D3 players so we shouldn’t question him. His lifting program was embarrassing. However, his biggest downfall was his demeanor. The team’s energy would be high before practice and once we saw him come to the field, everybody’s energy dropped. Before our first game, we were doing this up passing drill and we were communicating and high energy. He then proceeded to yell at us and screamed “Is this how you guys prepare for a game?” I asked him later what was wrong with the drill to which I was met with no response. Our team consistently held meetings over him and the only reason we stuck together as a team was because we cared for one another. If one of us quit the team, there would no longer be a team (due to lack of numbers). It got to the point to where our team captain had on his notes app upwards of 30 instances just that year in which Loftis acted inappropriately towards players. Regardless of the UD lacrosse program shutting down, 7/9 freshman that were on the team, decided that they will not play lacrosse for him again. He is one of the rudest people I have met and under no circumstances, do I recommend a player to commit to any team or university that has Keith Loftis in the coaching staff.
