DENVER -- In 2014, Denver will have a strong group of midfielders return from last season, and it will welcome back some new additions.
Drew Snider was the Outlaws’ most dominant midfielder last year and is set to return for his third season with Denver. Snider was named the Most Improved Player of the Year last season after finishing sixth in the league with 31 goals. The University of Maryland product also dished for 14 assists and collected 30 groundballs.
Complementing Snider at midfield is another former Terrapin in Jeremy Sieverts. Sieverts tied for tenth in the league last year with 27 goals. He also has the ability to score from far out — he had six 2-points goals last season. His season was good enough to earn him his first All-MLL honors and second-straight All-Star game appearance.
Cameron Flint enters his second year in the league and first with the Outlaws. The Canadian midfielder netted eight goals and dished for nine assists last season with the Boston Cannons. A University of Denver graduate, he was a three-time All American in college and scooped up 110 groundballs during his collegiate career.
Also getting playing time at midfield will be Terry Kimener. Kimener enters his eighth year in the league and fourth with Denver. He ranks fourth on the Outlaws’ all-time assist leaderboard with 38. Last season, he posted 32 points on 17 goals and 15 assists, and two of his goals were game winners.
Rounding out Denver’s veteran midfielders is Justin Pennington. Pennington, who played college lacrosse at Rutgers, returns for his third season in Denver. In 2013 he set career highs with 10 goals, four assists and 39 groundballs.
Noah Molnar, who was signed after coming to Denver’s open tryouts, Dan Groot, Sam Snow, Domenic Sebastiani and Michael Simon will also be listed as midfielders on the Outlaws roster.
Simon was acquired via offseason trade with Chesapeake.
