Matt Rewkowski enters his second season as an assistant coach, working primarily with the offense for the Georgetown University men's lacrosse program.
In 2013, Rewkowski's offense averaged 10.13 goals per game, scoring 10 or more goals seven times, including 17 goals against Marquette, the most by a GU team since 2002.
Under Rewkowski's guidance, sophomore attack Reilly O'Connor emerged with the BIG EAST's second-highest points/game average (3.73). O'Connor's 56 points was the most by a GU player since Steve Dusseau in 2002. Sophomore midfielder Charlie McCormick also broke out, with 27 points (19 goals, 8 assists). O'Connor and McCormick were both selected Second Team All-BIG EAST.
A Johns Hopkins graduate and Bethpage, N.Y. native, Rewkowski came to Georgetown after spending his last two seasons as the Associate Head Coach at Cornell, where he was in charge of the team's offense. Despite losing Rob Pannell, the 2011 USILA Player of the Year in the second game, Rewkowski's offense was still among the nation's best, ranking ninth in scoring offense (12.0 gpg), 13th overall in man-up offense (.422) and 16th in points per game (17.62).
In Rewkowski's first season at Cornell, the Big Red offense flourished, posting the nation's second best scoring offense (12.71 gpg) in 2011, while leading the squad to a 14-3 record and a trip to the NCAA quarterfinals, while also winning its first-ever Ivy League tournament title.
Prior to Cornell, Rewkowski spent four seasons at Hofstra, helping the Pride to 36 victories, a Colonial Athletic Association championship (2008), a CAA regular season title (2009), and three berths to the NCAA tournament (2008, '09, '10). He also had a hand in coaching eight All-Americans, 27 All-CAA selections and six North-South All-Stars. His 2010 offense was ranked in the top 10 in the nation in five offensive categories, including scoring (fifth, 12.93), scoring margin (fourth, 3.93), points per game (fourth, 20.5), assists per game (sixth, 7.57) and shot percentage (fourth, .352).
Rewkowski spent one season as an assistant coach on the scholastic level in Denver while he was a member of the Denver Outlaws of Major League Lacrosse. He played his collegiate lacrosse at both Johns Hopkins and Duke, winning the 2005 NCAA Championship as a senior captain with the Blue Jays.
Rewkowski and his wife, Julie currently reside in Silver Spring, Md. with their newborn son, Ryan.
