This section pulls info from Constituent Manager. It is a feed that does not require manual updates on the page.

The above is a Head Coach Element (Andrew) that will only show a head for particular team. We can make this Head Coach Element open in a pop up (or in a page) and then select constituent manager info we want the pop-up to display.
At the moment, Head Coach Element is set to open in a page. This element is called a "shared" element - where by changing display options at the top level we can change/update the way all Head Coach Elements display globally on our web site (so we can either have head coach info open in a pop-up or as a separate page).

What you see underneath, on the other hand, is a list of all coaches. When using this element, we do not have an option to eliminate head coaches from the list. The element will display all coaches or no one.
If we have a way (additional filtering option) of deselecting head coach from this element, the solution could work. We could use Head Coach Element (as you see above) in conjunction with the below. No?
We could ask for a thumb/square size photo to be placed next to each coach's name. View profile would open in a pop-up displaying constituent information we select.

Note - some coaches do not have their constituent profiles properly populated therefore information display is not consistnet yet.

In this section we need to add info manually

The below is the manual approach - copy and paste, plus manual photo input.

Head Coach
Andrew D'Ambrosio was the head coach of the boys varsity lacrosse team at Berkshire School from 2015-17 having served as the assistant coach from 2011-14. Coach D’Ambrosio played high school lacrosse at Loomis Chaffee (’06) where he was a four-year letter winner. He went on to be a four-year starter at Williams College (’10) where he helped win the program’s only NESCAC title in 2008. As a close defenseman at Williams, he was a senior captain, a two-time All-NESCAC selection, an ECAC All-New England selection, and a USILA Scholar All-American.

Assistant Coach Mike Eckert started teaching and coaching at Hotchkiss in 2013 having previously worked at Avon Old Farms (CT), the American Overseas School of Rome (Italy), and Blair Academy (NJ). He grew up in Pittsford, NY where he played football and lacrosse, earning All-America honors as a senior attackman and then matriculating to Harvard University where he was a four year starter. As a senior, Coach Eckert co-captained the 1996 team to the quarter-finals of the NCAA tournament, was named Ivy League Co-Player of the Year (with Jesse Hubbard), First Team All-Ivy, New England Player of the Year and USILA Second Team All-America. He earned All-Ivy accolades all four years (2nd Team in ‘93 and ‘95) and was First Team All-New England in ‘95 and ‘96. He graduated as the program’s all time leader in assists and points and was inducted into the the Harvard Athletic Hall of Fame in 2011. At Hotchkiss, he teaches Humanities Prep History and AP U.S. History and is the Associate Dean of Academic Life. He lives in Redlich Dormitory with his wife Heather, three sons Reece, Cormac, and Mather, and his loyal golden retriever Jambo.

Assistant Coach Steve McKibben played long pole throughout his career at Wesleyan University and coached at Springfield College prior to coming to Hotchkiss. He is a familiar face within the ranks of western New England lacrosse. He teaches in the English department and serves as the dean of summer programs. Coach McKibben also coaches varsity basketball.


The boys' lacrosse program at Hotchkiss consists of a dynamic team experience and an enduring opportunity.

Training on the field is about learning the game, improving one’s skill and speed, and understanding the success that comes with teamwork and collaboration. Nothing prepares one for adult life better than learning to be accountable, patient, and motivated.

Our goals off the field get to the heart of the program: community service. With established relationships both local and distant, Hotchkiss lacrosse players leave their best behind by giving of their time and commitment to helping others.

In these ways, Hotchkiss lacrosse players are teammates for life. The friendships made as members of our teams last forever.

-- Chris Burchfield, Head Coach, Boys Varsity Lacrosse
