Major League Lacrosse (MLL) has named D.J. Driscoll (Malvern Prep) of the Chicago Machine as the Defensive Player of the Week.
Driscoll, a member of the US National team that will compete in the FIL championships next month in Manchester, England, earned the defensive honors this week after doing a little bit of everything aside from his usual longstick role. Driscoll picked up two assists in a dramatic come from behind win over the Toronto Nationals on Saturday.
The two points were Driscoll’s first of the season. He remains a vacuum in the opening field, having scooped up 14 groundballs through four games this season. Chicago scored a buzzer beating two-point goal for the unlikely win, dropping Toronto to 0-4 on the season. Driscoll has the Machine rolling towards the playoffs with a record of 3-1 and tied for first place.
The 6’4″ longpole is in his fourth year in the league after playing his college ball at Notre Dame. Driscoll has been all over the field during his four years, having scooped up 161 ground balls in that time.
