Press Release

And here we thought the lights were on and no one was home in the Riptide’s office. Its going to be interesting to see how much US field flavor if any the Riptide will have. 


Brian Hobart joins the Riptide as Director of Scouting and Jake Henhawk was named Director of Player Development for the National Lacrosse League (NLL) franchise. Hobart and Henhawk will report to Lance Basler, Assistant General Manager and Director of Lacrosse Operations for the Riptide.

As Director of Scouting, Hobart will manage the team’s regional scouts and be responsible for draft preparation, free agency and trade recommendations, as well as opponent scouting and analysis. He joins the Riptide with more than a decade of lacrosse front office experience, most recently serving as a scout for the Philadelphia Wings and Assistant General Manager for the U.S. Indoor Lacrosse National Team. Hobart previously worked alongside Thorpe during his nearly 10 years as the Head Scout for the Rochester Knighthawks.

Henhawk will support Hobart and all additional team scouts with player evaluation and planning and serve as a key liaison between the players and team management in his role as Director of Player Development. He joins the Riptide from the Knighthawks where he was President of Lacrosse Operations. Prior to the Knighthawks, Henhawk was the Head Scout for the Vancouver Stealth.
