Meet the Team
Paolo Diaz- Club Director
Paolo grew up in Aurora, Colorado after his family moved from the Philippines when he was just five. As a chubby boy with cowlick, Paolo didn't even know what lacrosse was and only became involved after going to some professional games and more so when his son started playing for the Commerce City Tigers, which played through CARA. Even before Bison Lacrosse Club was formed, Paolo's love for the game grew where his goal was to grow the sport in Commerce City, as there were no clubs in the northeast metro area. Paolo's goal is to provide kids and the community at-large with the opportunity to learn, play, and love the game of lacrosse.
Mindy Diaz- Club Director
Mindy has been a fan of lacrosse since her kids began playing 7 years ago. As a game day chauffer, cheerleader and snack mom for several years, she has added some lacrosse knowledge to her background. Mindy has been involved with Bison Lacrosse through volunteering in the past and has now taken on a bigger role as one of the club directors. Bison Lacrosse can benefit from her background in education and business.
Bryon Guyer- Coach
Bryon has been coaching youth sports in the Commerce City area for the last 10 years and lacrosse for the last 6 years.

He grew up playing sports at the Commerce City Recreation himself, usually on a team his father coached, and later working for the city as an official. Teaching character development and accountability through youth athletics has become a family tradition for the Guyers, one that Bryon has been proud to carry on as a member of the Bison Lacrosse family! He also enjoys serving his community as director and coach for local CCYA Girls Softball.

Brett is very passionate about coaching and he feels truly blessed to have been involved with some wonderful programs. Through coaching Brett hopes to pass along the knowledge he gained from his involvement as a student, player and a coach. Brett enjoys seeing young athletes carry out something positive that he has taught them whether it is on or off the field. “It truly leaves me amazed and awestruck when these moments happen”.
Brandon Davis- Coach
