Peet Poillon (born May 21, 1987 in La Jolla, California) is a professional lacrosse player who currently plays for the Chesapeake Bayhawks of Major League Lacrosse a Re-Peet of sorts.

Playing Career Overview[edit]

Poillon was a two-time All-American for Ohio State University and University of Maryland, Baltimore County. In 2009, he was selected a Second Team All-American for UMBC and in 2008 he led Ohio State to a 15 to 7 first-round upset of Cornell.

Poillon attended Seneca Valley High School north of Pittsburgh, where he was an All-American in lacrosse and where Poillon and his father started up lacrosse as a varsity sport. Poillon's father attended school board meetings and Peet collected signatures to make the lacrosse program happen at Seneca Valley. Poillon set the Western Pennsylvania Scholastic Lacrosse Association’s scoring record with 410 career goals. Unfortunately these achievements did not get him much attention and so Poillon attended Howard Community College for two years in hopes of getting noticed by Division I coaches. As a two-time NJCAA All-American, Poillon scored over 140 points as well as finally got the Division I notice he wanted and headed to Ohio State in 2007.[1][2]

Poillon was selected 20th overall in the 2009 Major League Lacrosse Collegiate Draft by the Boston Cannons. He never saw any playing time with the Cannons and was claimed by the Bayhawks in the MLL Player Pool. Poillon was named the MLL most improved player for 2010 as he helped Washington to the 2010 MLL Championship.[3]

Coaching Career Overview[edit]

In 2011, Poillon took over the head coach position at his alma mater, Seneca Valley High, leading to the Western Pennsylvania playoffs in what amounted to a turnaround season for the club. In December 2012, it was announced that Poillon had taken a position with the University of Delaware as volunteer assistant. In 2014, he accepted the role of assistant coach and offensive coordinator at Hobart College.
