U.S. Men’s U-19 lacrosse roster announced

After a three-day tryout that hosted 105 players at Stevenson University in Owings Mills, MD, US Lacrosse announced on Thursday the 50 players who will be invited to training camp with the 2016 U.S. Men’s National U-19 Team.

The player selection committee was comprised of the U.S. U19 coaching staff, five elite high school coaches from around the country and the US Lacrosse Men’s National Team Subcommittee Chair. Additionally, four other top high school coaches were brought in as sideline coaches and assisted in player evaluation.

These 50 players will reconvene for a second training camp August 7-9 at Johns Hopkins University. The weekend will then conclude with a Team USA Blue-White exhibition game at Homewood Field, Sunday, August 9 at 1 p.m.

Ultimately, 23 players will be named to the final roster for the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) U-19 World Championship, July 7-16, 2016, in Coquitlam, British Columbia.

In February, US Lacrosse named Ohio State head coach Nick Myers to the same position with the young squad. Alongside him are assistant coaches, Patrick Myers (UPENN), Chuck Ruebling (Delbarton School) and Peter Toner (Penn State).

“Expectations are high for this team, and the men certainly rose to the occasion over the past three days,” said head coach Nick Myers. “We got an incredible effort from all those involved at camp. We feel strongly that we laid the foundation for our team moving forward. We are grateful for the amazing support we received and excited to get back at it in August.”
