Boston Cannons Add Seven Players in MLL Supplemental Draft
BOSTON, MA - Wednesday, December 5, 2007 - The Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse (MLL) drafted five players - three midfielders and two attackmen - in the 2008 MLL Supplemental Draft, Cannons Vice President and General Manager Mark Kastrud announced today. The Cannons also selected two offensive players from the League Player Pool.
"We were looking to gain some depth at midfield," said Cannons Head Coach Bill Daye. "I think we got some great athletes today that will battle for a couple of very tough roster spots. I really like the make-up of our team right now. We're excited for 2008."
With the 16th overall selection in the second-round of the Supplemental Draft, the Cannons picked midfielder Brian Myers. The 6-2, 215-pound native of Towson, Maryland, has spent parts of the past two seasons with MLL's Denver Outlaws and 2007 Champion Philadelphia Barrage. The 2004 graduate of Towson University played in 62 games for the Tigers, a Towson school record, and averaged just under a goal per game. As a starting freshman, Myers tallied 17 goals and helped his team advance to the Final Four that season.
The Cannons selected University of Maryland midfielder Chris Feifs with their third-round pick (26th overall). The 2007 graduate was the recipient of the Dan Snyder Award during his senior season, given to the team's Most Improved Player. The 6-4, 235-pound native of Durham, North Carolina, appeared in 15 games for the Terps where he was ranked fifth in scoring during his senior campaign with 15 goals and four assists for 19 points.
The Cannons selected midfielder Joshua Porcell, a 2007 graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, with their fifth-round pick (46th overall). The 6-0, 190-pound native of Gansevoort, New York, appeared in 17 games for the Retrievers during his senior season and collected nine points (6-3=9) and 25 groundballs.
With their sixth-round selection (56th overall), the Cannons picked attackman Brian Boyle. A 2007 graduate and four-year letterman at Penn State, Boyle finished his collegiate career as Penn State's leading scorer. The 5-8, 160-pound native of Derry, New Hampshire, was honored as a Second-Team All-ECAC selection after his junior season in 2006 and also named an Academic All-Big Ten honoree for his hard work in the classroom.
With their final pick in the seventh-round (66th overall), the Cannons selected attackman Peter Milliman. The 5-10, 195-pound native of Albany, New York, spent the past two seasons with MLL's Rochester Rattlers where he appeared in seven games and registered four goals, four assists, and seven groundballs. A 2002 graduate of Gettysburg College, Milliman was a three-time All-American and helped lead the Bullets to four straight NCAA tournament berths.
In addition, the Cannons added attackman/midfielder Adam LoGiudice and midfielder/face-off Nolan Godfrey from the League Player Pool. LoGiudice, a 5-9, 190-pound native of Massapequa, New York, attended RPI. Godfrey, a 5-11, 215-pound native of Haverhill, Massachusetts, is a 2006 graduate of Merrimack College.
