Major Indoor Lacrosse League
Brad was one of the major early draws for indoor lacrosse, playing professionally from 1987 to 1991 with the Major Indoor Lacrosse League Washington Wave and with the Philadelphia Wings, and winning two championships with the Wings. He led the league in scoring in 1989 and was named first team All-Pro in 1990. In 1987 Kotz teamed with Frank Urso in leading the Washington Wave to a 20-15 win over the Wings in the semi-finals, and a close one-goal loss to the Baltimore Thunder in the finals. Kotz attended the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School while playing for Philadelphia. During this time, he was also an assistant coach at the University of Pennsylvania under Tony Seaman, helping guide the Quakers to the 1988 Ivy League title and NCAA tournament appearance.
Kotz played lacrosse at West Genesee High School, one of the premier high school teams in the country, along with notable Syracuse players, Tom Korrie and Jeff McCormick. Over more than forty years, West Genesee lacrosse teams have captured a total of 25 New York Section 3 titles and 15 New York State championships. Kotz' team went 24 and 0 while winning the New York high school state title in his senior season of 1981. For his effort, Kotz was named High School All American that year.
