    How embarassing for everyone involved.

    Marano “may have inflated his experience,” Durham allowed. “But we don’t think he lied.”

    Hilarious. How exactly is that not lying? For a guy that’s been somewhat of a bully, and thrown his experience in everyone’s face, Marano sure is getting his due.

    Sounds to me like the kid was not good enough to play and his dad was upset enough to sue. This kid will continue to be a bust if his family continues to enable his mediocrity. It is ok to play sports and be average as long as you learn team work and commitment. This kid will never understand that concept. FYI…most of the students who beat him out for a varsity spot play D1 and continue to dominate. His current coach needs to learn from this and play this kid the entire game if he doesn’t want to get sued by his lawyer dad.

    Why do comments keep disappearing from this feed?

    John Marano lied about his going to college and playing college lacrosse. He has made a business of running other programs out of town by calling them liars. I know for a fact that he banned a 10 year old boy from playing c2c because that boy played for another smaller team. He threatened 2 other boys that caved and played for c2c. I can’t comment on the merit of this lawsuit but I’m happy that it is bringing to light the other unfair and unsportsmanlike behavior of c2c and John Marano.

  • We also published this story in Preston Hollow People. The following comments were left on that paper’s website, in a spot where they will be hard for anyone to see. So here they are:

    What kind of a publication is this? It is common knowledge that the Munck Family is known their repetitive harrassment tactics until they get what they want. Check the facts before printing this garbage.

    You should be ashamed of yourselves for publishing a completely one-sided story on the Munck-Barnicle lawsuit. Did you even attempt to understand the story or get any facts from the other side? You simply took the word of a plaintiff whose primary objective seems to be to smear the reputation of one of the truly exceptional high school coaches in the area. Get the facts before publishing such rubish.

    Not surprised that C2C’s pattern of questionable integrity and not delivering what they promise has caught them up in a lawsuit. Lacrosse is a great sport but character has to be part of any program.

  • Avid Reader

    Seems like it would be pretty easy to track down whether this coach lied about his credentials.

  • Miley W.

    A portion of the comments moved from PHP blog are still showing up on that blog’s “Recent Comments” section with a dead link.

  • LaxLover

    Someone should ask Steven Kravit, Plano West Boys Lacrosse Coach & Board member, C2C participant and candidate for PISD school board, what he knows about this . . , and whether his interest in being on the PISD School Board is All The Kids or only the kids who play for Plano West Lacrosse and C2C?

  • EVERYONE NEEDS TO READ: Newest Suit Filed and Includes HP Coaches


    HP parents, better wise up and get informed. Bad things happening here too and you parents have the right to step in and clean up the mess by clearing out the Board of Directors and insisting on better leadership of coaches. Parents had better do it before the incoming president for the HP league takes office. Contact US Lacrosse with your concerns. Take charge of your players future. Another comment above question John Marano’s bio he had lied on, someone should check a member of the HP board of directors bio as well, don’t think he truly attended the college he has told many many he did and he is coaching the youth/younger of HP also.

    Is the attorney, Durham, listed in the article above this comment the same Durham who has a son on D1 and is he representing one or two of the HP D1 coaches listed in this new suit filed March 25th?

    These rich kids play lacrosse because they aren’t good enough to play the other more common sports. It’s a waste of time anyway. Go study. Adult Careers aren’t based on playing boys games

  • Tony

    Mr. Turner you are way off. My sons high school team is made up of 95% football players from the high school. Just another way to stay in shape and keep the competitive juices flowing. Just because you do not understand something it doesn’t make it a waste of time. Most of the lacrosse players i know have great grades and are at the top of their class. I wish some of the basketball team would be like that.
