Lazurek has equally impressive accomplishments, including coaching the Edmonton Wildcats, the University of Alberta Golden Bears football team and Salisbury High School football team. He also was the head coach for the Salisbury Senior Girls basketball program for 28 years and was apart of the coaching staff for the Grant MacEwan women’s basketball team for eight years.

Manning played for 12 years for the Toronto Rock in the National Lacrosse League (NLL). His team won four league championships Manning was selected as a three-time league all-star and was named Rookie of the Year in 2002.
