Just hours after graduating with the rest of the University of Denver Class of 2013, Eric Law joined his new Denver Outlaws teammates for the first time and made his professional debut at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
Law tied for a game-high with four goals and earned Player of the Game efforts after helping Denver improve to 6-0 and emerge as the only remaining unbeaten MLL team with the club’s 22-9 win over previously undefeated Hamilton.
On graduating from DU and winning player of the game honors in his MLL debut all in the same day:
“To start off, it’s just awesome to graduate from the University of Denver. It was so much fun being there with all my family, friends, and college teammates. Being with all those guys this morning and being able to transition tonight and these guys take me under their wing I can’t thank them enough for the opportunity that they give me. It was just so much fun.”
On how he felt in his MLL debut:
“It’s fun. I really enjoy the game. It’s really fast-paced, and I love the nonstop up-and-down. As an offensive player, I can’t help but love it.”
On playing for his home team as a Centennial, Colo. native:
“Unbelievable. Coming here to Mile High where the Broncos play—it’s my favorite team, and I was born a fan watching people here all the time—to be able to get the opportunity to play here from GM Tony Seaman and Coach is unbelievable and a lifelong dream come true for sure.”
On the significance of the Outlaws’ win against the Nationals:
I think [this game] was important because it was the next one. Now we’re 6-0, and our next important game is Chesapeake, so we’re going to be focused on that for the next week, and hopefully we can build off this. I thought we played two great halves—our defense played great, and we had a great goalie in place—so hopefully we can build off this and keep it going.”
