- Manager, Lacrosse Operations
Don Sunblade, in his tenth year with the team, was named Manager, Lacrosse Operations in the summer of 2012. He has significant team responsibilities including salary-cap management and player personnel coordination and scheduling. Sunblade attended Metropolitan State College of Denver where he majored in sports industry operations and minored in marketing. Before graduating in 2005, he interned for the perennially-powerful Metro State men’s basketball team, helping design and implement a marketing plan as well as assisting in game entertainment.
While attending college, Sunblade saw the Mammoth’s first open tryout and immediately became a lacrosse fan. He interned with the Mammoth during the 2005 season before being hired later that year to assist the general manager and handle many of the team’s day-to-day operations. Sunblade is a Colorado native and lives in Lakewood with his wife, Rachel, and their sons, Jackson, Ryan and Casen.
