From Press Release

Peter Milliman, the Richard M. Moran Head Coach of Men’s Lacrosse, has announced that the Big Red will add 13 newcomers to the roster for the 2019 season. The 13-member class features four US Lacrosse All-Americans, and consists of six defenders, three players that can play attack or midfield, two midfielders, one face-off specialist, and one goalie.

The group hails from five different states, including a class-high five New Yorkers, as well as one player coming from Ontario.

“I think this class is going to bring depth and competition at every spot on the field,” said Milliman. “There are several players who have the ability to impact us right away, but for the first time in a few years, we have very few openings in the lineup right now. There is a battle at every position all of these newcomers are going to have to fight very hard if they want a chance to get on the field this year. This is a defensively heavy class but overall it’s a strong group that we are very excited about.”
