BIO

A veteran of the U.S. Men’s National Team and a Pan American Cup connoisseur, Scally has been able to light a tremendous spark by driving the team to World Leagues in 2012 and 2013. For Scally, field hockey is an heirloom passed down from generation to generation. His father and grandfather played in the Olympic Games and his aunt competed in several World Cups. At every level of play, Scally remains true to core reason him and his family played and still play field hockey – because they simply enjoy it.
