The varsity lacrosse team took a break from spring training this week to receive advice from former New England Patriots player Rob Ninkovich. Through a connection at Boston Private Bank, the retired linebacker stopped by campus on March 26 to share his story with the team. Ninkovich played under Coach Bill Belichick from 2009 through the 2016 season, winning two Super Bowls and collecting 46 sacks along the way. A versatile and resilient player, Ninkovich was not handed his professional football career for free; he fought for it and overcame multiple setbacks in order to string together an impressive career. Ninkovich talked about his journey, from high school to the NFL, with the team in the new Video Classroom in the West Campus Center and offered valuable insights about competing, work ethic, and being a leader.
