In his first three years at the helm of the men's lacrosse program, Levine has led the squad to consecutive double-digit win seasons in which the Mavericks have been ranked in the national poll. In 2015, the Mavericks reached the ECC playoffs for the first time in program history as a No. 3 seed and were ranked as high as No. 10 nationally, ending the season 10-7. Under the leadership of Levine, Mercy received a program-best six All-Conference honorees and had two student-athletes named to the ECAC Division II All-Star Second Team.
The 2014 squad set a number of program records, including goals scored and ground balls, while attackman Jesse Wood led the nation in points and points per game. Levine's three-year tenure as an assistant coach, which began in the program's inaugural season, saw the team attain a No. 6 national ranking in 2011 with multiple players receiving All-Conference and All-America honors.
Prior to beginning his professional career, Levine was a standout at the University of Albany, where he was a three-time America East All-Conference First Team member. He helped his team earn a bid to the NCAA Division I Tournament in 2005 and 2007, where the Great Danes upended perennial power Loyola (Md.) in the first round. Levine was named to the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) All-America Second Team as a junior and capped his collegiate career by earning USILA All-America Honorable Mention accolades as a senior.
Levine went on to compete in Major League Lacrosse for five seasons as a first-round draft pick by the New Jersey Pride in 2008. Levine was a member of the 2009 World Champion Toronto Nationals and was selected to the MLL All-Star Game in 2009 and 2011.
