Bio

2013: The attackman had a career-year, posting personal bests in goals (33) and points (49). Danowski led the Hounds in both those offensive categories and also finished fourth overall in the league for both, despite playing in two less game than the top three scorers. Of Danowski’s 33 goals in 2013, six were 2-point tallies, which ranked second in the league. Another notable improvement for Danowksi last season was increasing his shot-on-goal percentage from a career-low 16.5% in 2012 to a career-high 26.6% in 2013

2012: The Hounds acquired Danowski through a trade with the Lizards in Dec. 2011. The attackman played in 13 games of the franchise's inaugural season and led the team with 43 points. The 43 points ranked him sixth overall in MLL. Danowski scored 19 goals, including a team-best five 2-pointers. He also led the Hounds with 19 assists, a new career-high for the attackman. In Week 9, Danowski was honored as the "MLL Offensive Player of the Week" for a six point performance that included a game-winning 2-point goal.

2011: Danowski led the Lizards in all offensive categories, notching 23 goals (including a league best of seven 2-pointers) and 11 assists for a total of 41 points in 12 games. He was named to both the 2011 MLL All-Star game and All-MLL team.

2010: Danowski was named to his third straight MLL All-Star team after leading the Lizards in goals scored (25), assists (18), and points (47). Those offensive statistics also ranked Danowski second overall in the MLL for all three categories during the regular season. In two postseason games, Danowski tallied one goal and three assists.

2009: In his first season with the Lizards, Danowski tallied a team high 31 points, with 16 goals (one 2-pointer) and 14 assists. He was also second on the team in ground balls, collecting 31 through the regular-season. In the Lizards’ one postseason game Danowski put up two goals and added two assists. The attackman was named to the “Young Guns” All-Star team.

2008:  Danowski was selected 2nd overall by the New Jersey Pride in the 2008 Collegiate Draft.  He played 10 games that season, scoring 19 goals (including three 2-pointers) and tallying 14 assists for 36 points. Danowski was the 2nd leading scorer on the Pride and was selected to his first MLL All-Star team.

Collegiate: Danowski was a four-time USILA All-American at Duke Univ., and ranks second all-time in NCAA Division I for total points in a career, with 353. As a sophomore in 2005, he won the Jack Turnbull Award, given to the nation's top collegiate attackman. In 2007, Danowski won the Tewaaraton Trophy, awarded to the nation's most outstanding collegiate lacrosse player. That same season, he also won the USILA's Lt. Raymond Enners Award as the national player of the year, and his second Jack Turnbull Award. Danowski broke the NCAA career points record in 2008, and was again awarded the Lt. Raymond Enners Award.

Personal: Matt joined the Duke men’s lacrosse staff as an assistant coach in July 2012, and now is working alongside his father, head coach John Danowski. In his free time, Matt enjoys playing golf, going to the beach and cooking.
