Major League Lacrosse: Boston Cannons Middie Paul Rabil Named “2012 Offensive Player Of The Year” For Third Time In Four Years


Major League Lacrosse, the premier professional outdoor lacrosse league, announced Wednesday that midfielder Paul Rabil has been named as the 2012 Warrior MLL Offensive Player of the Year, according to MLL Commissioner David Gross. The award was based on the votes submitted by the head coach and general manager of each of the League’s eight teams. “I’m very honored and humbled to have earned the Offensive Player of the Year award. It’s always rewarding to receive individual achievements from all the hard work I put in each year,” says Rabil. “That said, no matter the amount of work I put into my game, this is a team sport, and without such tremendous players I have the honor to play with each week, I wouldn’t be in this position. Thanks to all the coaches and GM’s in this league that have voted, and I’m eager to continue to compete at the highest level.” It is the third time in four years that Rabil has been named as the Warrior Offensive Player of the Year, including each of the last two seasons. He also becomes the second player in MLL history to earn the award three times, joining attackman John Grant, Jr. Grant earned the award in 2001, 2007 and 2008 as a member of the Rochester Rattlers.
