Warrior has signed Princeton All American and the number one player chosen in the Major League Lacrosse (MLL) draft by the Ohio Machine, Tom Schreiber, to its roster of sponsored players.

“Tom Schreiber has an unrivaled passion for the sport both on and off the field,” said Dave Dixon, CMO at Warrior. “Tom is a hard-nosed, pure athlete that dominates for four quarters every time he takes the field, but that’s really just the tip of the iceberg with him. Tom’s work ethic and dedication to the game are what really make the partnership with Warrior such a great fit. We are extremely excited to have Tom join the Warrior team and look forward to growing the game together.”
“After meeting with the Warrior team, it became immediately clear that we share a true passion for the sport and this was the place for me,” said Tom Schreiber. “I could see they put as much time and dedication into their game as I put into mine and that really sold me. We have already discussed some ideas to help grow the sport including a clinic tour in emerging lacrosse regions. I’m thrilled to be a part of the Warrior family and I can’t wait for the next steps in our partnership together.”
