Cannons Coaching Staff

Scott Conrad

Program director and Vista Ridge HS head coach Scott Conrad is in his 12th season coaching in Central Texas. With a career record of 117-38 (76% win pct.) and three Coach of the Year awards with three different teams, Coach Conrad is one of the most experienced and successful coaches in central Texas lacrosse history. A native of the Washington D.C. area, Coach Conrad was introduced to lacrosse in fifth grade and immediately fell in love with the sport. After a successful youth and high school career, the attention shifted to coaching after suffering a career-ending injury freshman year of college at Virginia Commonwealth University.

Coach Conrad helped oversee the Youth program for years in Georgetown and also helped run camps, clinics, and travel teams across the Austin area with multiple youth organizations in the summer and fall seasons. It is his belief that great high school programs come from great youth feeder systems, and he is excited to help continue to grow the Cannons Lacrosse organization.

Jeff Kunz

Jeff began coaching in 2016 at the 3rd and 4th grade level, and was a founding member of the Cannons board from 2018-2021. He has coached grades K-6 in his tenure and is currently the K-2nd grade coach. It is at this level that Coach strives to focus on the foundation of a successful lacrosse experience. Creating a fun environment, learning the basic fundamentals of the sport, and most importantly, the mantra of attitude and effort.

John Duchouquette

Coach JD has been coaching multiple sports "successfully" for over 20 yrs.  Although he has a healthy competitive spirit, he firmly believes that at the youth level "success" is measured in the quality of the individuals experience in concert with team success.  As a former professional athlete, and a father of four boys, he always promotes a respect for the coaching role and will approach each player at every level with that privilege in mind.
