Former University of Delaware standout Brett Manney (Holy Ghost Prep) was cited by Inside Lacrosse as one of nine Major League Lacrosse Supplemental Draft picks with “staying power.”
Manney – a defensive midfielder – was picked Tuesday in the second round (No. 12 overall) by the defending MLL champion Chesapeake Bayhawks.
Manney, who also plays for the Philadelphia Wings in the National Lacrosse League, is a 6-foot-3, 225-pounder who helped lead Delaware to the Final Four in 2007. He played last year for the NLL champion Washington Stealth.
Manney was a four-year standout for the Blue Hens, appearing in 50 games with four starts and contributing five goals and five assists. Defensively, he collected 87 groundballs and caused 25 turnovers during his career.
Manney received the UD Student Service for Athletes Outstanding Contributor Award for his community service efforts.
Manney was originally picked by the Bayhawks – then the Washington Bayhawks – in the 2008 Collegiate Draft.
