Jason Lange was named the Pfeiffer University Head Men’s Lacrosse coach on June 21, 2013 after previously serving as the assistant coach at Mars Hill College for four seasons.
In his first season at Pfeiffer, Lange guided the Falcons to a 9-5 record despite playing one of the most difficult schedules in the nation. Lange coached Hayden Kirk and Steven Tilmon to Third Team USILA All-American honors and placed eight players on the First and Second Team All-Conference.
As a member of the Mars Hill coaching staff, Lange served as the defensive coordinator where he guided the defense to the unparalleled success. His 2010 unit allowed only 6.43 goals per game, which ranked in the top-10 nationally and was the best mark in program history. Also in 2010, the Lions man down unit ranked number one in the country, killing off 89.3% of opponent’s man up opportunities. Last season, Lange helped Mars Hill to an 11-3 record, also a school record, and has helped take the team to three consecutive Deep South Conference regular season championships.
In total, Lange has coached five All-Americans, 22 All-Conference standouts, three Conference Players of the Year, and one Conference Freshman of the Year. He also coached three players that were drafted into the National Lacrosse League, and one player that signed with a Major League Lacrosse team.
Prior to joining the Lions’ coaching staff, Lange was a standout on the field for Mars Hill. He served as a defenseman from 2004-09 where he helped lead the team to a Deep South Conference tournament championship in 2008 and a regular season title in 2009. Following the 2009 season, Lange represented the USA at the Berlin Open in Germany and helped lead the team to the championship game.
Lange holds a bachelor’s degree in physical education with a minor in coaching.
