Head Coach: Dick Rizk
Dick Rizk is a renowned figure in the lacrosse community and a fixture on the Stockton sideline as he enters his 16th year as the Ospreys’ head coach. From his association with his alma mater Rutgers University to his 24 years as head coach at Boonton High School to his current position at Stockton, Rizk is known and respected throughout the state and beyond. He is a member of the New Jersey Lacrosse Hall of Fame and a past president of the New Jersey Lacrosse Foundation. Rizk has built a successful program at Stockton that has made 11 ECAC Tournament appearances in the last 13 seasons and won the ECAC Metro Championship in 2002.

In the last three years, Rizk has sandwiched two 8-8 seasons around an 8-6 campaign. He has led Stockton to the Knickerbocker Conference tournament and the ECAC Metro tourney three consecutive times. Stockton also advanced to the ECAC championship game in 2004. After relinquishing many of his responsibilities due to bypass surgery in 2002, Rizk returned to his active coaching role in 2003 and coached the Ospreys to a 7-5 mark . Despite the health issues, Rizk played a key role in Stockton’s run to the ECAC Metro title and a school-record 12 victories in 2002 by building a solid foundation for the team’s success.

After sub-.500 seasons in his first two years, Rizk guided the Ospreys to their first winning season with an 8-4 mark in 1994. The ’94 campaign also began a string of five consecutive ECAC playoff appearances. As part of the streak, Stockton established a school record with 11 wins in 1997, including its first victory in the ECAC Tournament.

The run of ECAC berths continued as Rizk led the Ospreys to an 8-7 mark in 1998. Stockton missed the postseason in 1999, but Rizk was able to regroup in 2000 with a 9-7 mark. That season also was Stockton’s first in the Knickerbocker Conference. The Ospreys promptly tied for first place at 6-1 but lost out on an NCAA Tournament bid due to tiebreakers. Rizk coached Stockton to an 8-7 overall record and 5-2 Knickerbocker Conference mark in 2001 as the Ospreys again received an invitation to the ECAC Metro Championship.

In addition to his great success at Stockton and Boonton High School, Rizk also spent time coaching lacrosse in California. He served as the head coach at San Diego State University and associate head coach at Whittier College.
