TREVOR TIERNEY BIO
Trevor Tierney was born with leadership and athletics in his blood. With a Hall of Fame lacrosse coach, Bill Tierney, as his father, Trevor was constantly involved in the game of lacrosse and other sports from a young age. At five years old, he started playing youth lacrosse and quickly learned that he wanted to be a goalie. Every day after school, he would go to his father's team practices to watch and play the game he loved. His athletic dream as a child was to play for his father at Princeton University, win a NCAA National Championship and be a great lacrosse player, himself.
Those dreams ended up panning out for Trevor with a lot of hard work and determination. He is the only goalie in the history of the game to have won an NCAA Championship, an ILF World Championship, and an MLL Championship. Trevor was a two-time All-American at Princeton University, where he won two NCAA Div I National Championships. Trevor then went on to be named All-World Goalie in the 2002 ILF World Championships in Perth, Australia. In 2005, Trevor also won a MLL Championship with the Baltimore Bayhawks. Trevor finished his playing career in 2007 after playing two seasons with the Denver Outlaws and being named to his fourth MLL All-Star game. In 2012, he was inducted into the New Jersey Lacrosse Hall of Fame.
However, these accomplishments are only a small part of Trevor's story. Trevor has always been interested in psychology and personal development and received his B.A. from Princeton in Psychology in 2001. His senior thesis at Princeton was entitled, "Playing In The Zone : The Psychological Aspects Of Peak Performance In Sports". He is currently completing his master's degree in Psychology through the Harvard University Extension School and working on his thesis on, "Adult Development and Resilience in Collegiate Athletes". Through these studies, Trevor has developed a mission around utilizing athletics as a developmental and transformational environment to cultivate young men and women into mature, strong, and caring leaders for their community.
Currently, Trevor is involved in a number of projects that he is passionate about. He recently has founded a developmental consulting firm called Delta Developmental that works with elite level collegiate athletic teams, coaches and departments, and executive leadership teams. He also runs LXTC Lacrosse Training Center, a Denver-based company that organizes camps, clinics, teams and tournaments for youth through high school lacrosse players.
Trevor is also a talented artist, who loves graphic design (a talent that he developed at a small advertising firm in his mid-twenties) and writing. Finally, Trevor enjoys nature and the wilderness of Colorado and spends much of his free time hunting, hiking or camping and is an avid snowboarder in the winter. Trevor's career as a professional lacrosse player is long over, but his athletic practices and pursuits still continue on through Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Trevor lives in Boulder, CO with his long-time girlfriend, April, and their French Bulldog, Canon.
