COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Former Maryland men’s lacrosse all-American Bryan Cole has been selected to represent Team Canada during next month’s exhibition games in Denver, as announced by the Canadian Lacrosse Association this week.
A roster of 26 players, including 11 who will represent Canada for the very first time and seven members of the gold medal winning squad from the 2014 FIL Men's World Lacrosse Championship, were selected to take part in matches against the University of Denver and United States Air Force Academy on October 22 and 23, respectively.
The men's field lacrosse national team, led by head coach Randy Mearns (St. Catharines, Ont.), program director Dave Huntley (Toronto, Ont.), and chairman Dean French (Toronto, Ont.), will use this event to help plan for the upcoming 2018 FIL Men's World Lacrosse Championship that will take place in Manchester, England.
Cole had a spectacular career at Maryland, helping Maryland advance to four NCAA Final Fours and three NCAA title games, in addition to earning USILA First Team All-America as a senior in 2016.
Each of the athletes on this roster will look to leave a lasting impression on the coaching staff and hopefully earn an invite to the next senior men's field identification camp, which will likely take place in 2017.
