OUTLAWS ADD FOUR PLAYERS FROM OPEN TRYOUTS


 

 


DENVER The Outlaws signed four players to the roster from the club’s open tryouts held on Sunday, March 30. The team signed midfielder Noah Molnar and faceoff specialist Nick Maggio along with Midfielders Nic Bevacqua and Sam Spallitta. The open tryout was the first in club history and was a part of the Outlaws Academy.
“It's always extra special when you are able to hold a tryout for interested MLL players who are registered in the MLL Player Pool and you identify several that you think have the ability to help your team,” Outlaws General Manager Tony Seaman said.

Maggio played collegiate lacrosse at Merrimack College, where he set school records for faceoff percentage, faceoff wins and ground balls during his senior season. He won 59 percent of his draws that year and picked up 87 ground balls. Outlaws General Manager Tony Seaman stated, “Nick Maggio was more than impressive this past weekend as well with his ability to dominate faceoffs. We look forward to having him go against Anthony Kelly and Steven Robarge at training camp.  That contest will give us a much better idea of his potential as a MLL faceoff midfielder.”

Molnar was selected in the sixth round (45th overall) of the 2013 MLL Collegiate Draft by the Rochester Rattlers. He played collegiate lacrosse at Lehigh University, where he picked up 71 career ground balls in his four-year career with the Mountain Hawks. Molnar was “very impressive in his workouts this past Sunday at the Denver Outlaw tryouts. He is a big, strong and athletic lacrosse player who has the ability to help us as a defensive midfielder. “
Outlaws General Manager Tony Seaman said, “we were impressed with their (Nic and Sam) athletic ability as well as their ability to shoot the ball. Both deserve the opportunity to come into our first training camp and compete for a roster spot.”

Bevacqua earned All-America honors at Stevenson University. He currently works as a volunteer assistant coach at Colorado College.
Spallitta played MCLA lacrosse at Lindenwood University, totaling 105 goals with 28 assists for 133 points in 52 career games. He is a co-director at True Lacrosse.

In other recent roster transactions, the Outlaws waived midfielder Landon Carr and attackman Jeremy Boltus. Denver also claimed midfielder Dylan Sheridan from the league player pool.

Sheridan was a three-time MCLA All-American at Claremont McKenna College. A four-time WCLL first-team selection, Sheridan was named the 2006 West Coast Lacrosse League Player of the Year. He spent time on the Outlaws’ roster last season. Sheridan is currently an assistant coach at the University of Denver.

OUTLAWS ADD TWO FROM OPEN TRYOUT

 

The Outlaws added Noah Molnar and Nick Maggio to the roster

DENVER The Outlaws signed two players to the roster from the club’s open tryouts held on Sunday, March 30.
Midfielder Noah Molnar and faceoff specialist Nick Maggio were both added from the MLL player pool after their performances at the team’s tryouts. The open tryout was the first in club history and was a part of the Outlaws Academy.
“It's always extra special when you are able to hold a tryout for interested MLL players who are registered in the MLL Player Pool and you identify several that you think have the ability to help your team,” Outlaws General Manager Tony Seaman said.
Maggio played collegiate lacrosse at Merrimack College, where he set school records for faceoff percentage, faceoff wins and ground balls during his senior season. He won 59 percent of his draws that year and picked up 87 ground balls. His 410 career ground balls ranked first among active players across all three NCAA divisions at the time of his graduation. A two-time NEILA All New England selection, Maggio has spent time on the Boston Cannons practice squad.
“Nick Maggio was more than impressive this past weekend as well with his ability to dominate faceoffs. We look forward to having him go against Anthony Kelly and Steven Robarge at training camp.  That contest will give us a much better idea of his potential as a MLL faceoff midfielder.”
Molnar was selected in the sixth round (45th overall) of the 2013 MLL Collegiate Draft by the Rochester Rattlers. He played collegiate lacrosse at Lehigh University, where he picked up 71 career ground balls in his four-year career with the Mountain Hawks.
“Noah Molnar was very impressive in his workouts this past Sunday at the Denver Outlaw tryouts. He is a big, strong and athletic lacrosse player who has the ability to help us as a defensive midfielder. We look forward to having him in training camp in two weeks.”

KEN CLAUSEN NAMED HEADSTRONG HUMANITARIAN OF THE MONTH



Clausen’s Lacrosse Mustache Madness helped raise money for the HEADstrong Foundation

DENVER Outlaws defenseman Ken Clausen has been honored as the HEADstrong Humanitarian of the Month for his work with Lacrosse Mustache Madness.
Mustache Madness is an annual fundraising effort that was created as a way to raise funds to support the HEADstrong Foundation. Since its inception, the campaign has helped raise more than $400,000 to support the HEADstrong fight.
"I've always wanted to continue giving back to the community one way or another," Clausen said. "While I was at Virginia, I was helping out doing some student teaching and volunteering in the community. I first heard about this kind of campaign on vacation in Fiji, of all places, and I heard these guys talking about the Movember campaign that was going on over in Australia and it seemed to have been growing internationally. It sounded really cool and it worked well with me because I already had the finger 'stache and had some notoriety with this mustache [tattoo] on my finger and my stick so it plugged into things I was already known for.
"The lacrosse community as a whole is known as just such a special and tight knit community," he continued. "I mean the degrees of separation are everywhere, so I felt like an event [similar to Movember] could work really well within the community and people would hopefully unite around it. The concept of the event is to grow your mustache from October 19th through the end of November."
The HEADstrong Foundation and MLL entered into a partnership in January to help raise awareness about blood cancers to the extended lacrosse community and its fans.
The relationship between Mustache Madness and HEADstrong runs very deep, and just this past week at the 4th Annual HEADstrong Limelight Gala, Clausen was honored as the recipient of the Relentless Spirit Award for his hard work.
"It was the first time they had given this award," Clausen said. "I was incredibly honored to receive it and like I said at the event, I was completely honored to accept the award but it's really been a team effort. It wouldn't be possible without the support of the HEADStrong Foundation and the support of the lacrosse community. I consider it a team fight and everyone's been jumping in and helping out. It was an incredible honor to receive it and an amazing event that they put on and I was really grateful to be honored there."
