Jez, Men’s Lacrosse Release 2024 Schedule

2024 Men’s Lacrosse Schedule

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – As the Embry-Riddle men’s lacrosse team gears up for its first season under new skipper John Jez, the Eagles announce a 14-game schedule for the 2024 campaign. Jez, who looks to continue his successful run in Division II lacrosse at ERAU, will guide the Eagles through seven home and seven away contests.

The Eagles kick the campaign off with four of their first five games in the comforts of home, beginning with the season opener versus Flagler on Feb. 10. After a road trip to Anderson on Feb. 17, ERAU will welcome in North Greenville (Feb. 24), followed by Montevallo (Feb. 29) and Chowan (March 6).

Then a two-game stretch on the road awaits, as Embry-Riddle will travel to North Carolina to take on Belmont Abbey (March 9) and then to Alabama to square off with Alabama-Huntsville (March 16). 

Embry-Riddle jumps into conference play on March 23 when Lynn visits Daytona Beach. Then a tough stretch awaits when the Eagles travel to Florida Southern (March 30), before hosting Tampa (April 3), followed by trips to Florida Tech (April 6) and Rollins (April 10). Rollins entered the 2023 postseason as the No. 1 seed in the DII National Tournament, and Tampa at No. 4, but both were upset by Lenoir-Rhyne, which went on to claim the national title at the season’s end.

The Eagles close out the regular season with a visit from Saint Leo on April 13, and a road trip south to take on Palm Beach Atlantic on April 17.

All home games and all road SSC contests can be viewed on the Sunshine State Conference Digital Network.


Jez Adds Curry to Men’s Lacrosse Coaching Staff

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Embry-Riddle head men’s lacrosse coach Jon Jez has announced the addition of Dylan Curry as the Eagles’ assistant coach.
“We are extremely excited to have Dylan join our staff,” Jez said. “His enthusiasm and energy are what we need to elevate the program. He is a tireless worker and recruiter with vast on field knowledge.”
A native of Wilmette, Illinois, Curry was an All-American at New Trier High School. After graduating from New Trier, Curry was recruited by Monmouth University and was a member of the Hawks’ inaugural recruiting class. In his senior season, he helped Monmouth to the program’s first Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference regular season and tournament titles.
Curry began his coaching career at Middletown North High School in New Jersey where he was a defensive coordinator and faceoff coach from 2018-20. He also spent four seasons with United Lacrosse where he coached the United 2023 team and worked with the defensive and faceoff units for the entire United program.
In 2020, Curry was selected as a graduate assistant coach at Castleton University in Vermont. In addition to coaching individual goalie, faceoff and defensive drills, he played a key role in the Spartans’ recruiting efforts.
Curry was then hired as the assistant coach of the men’s lacrosse program at Keene State in June 2022. He was the defensive coordinator and faceoff coach for an Owls program that tied for second in the Little East Conference and advanced to the semifinals of the LEC tournament.
Curry graduated with a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Monmouth and earned his MBA with a concentration in analysis from Castleton.
