Former University of Denver men’s lacrosse stand-outs Eric Law and Dillon Roy were among 52 players named to the United States Men’s National Team training roster that was unveiled this week. The announcement came following a three-day tryout that saw 94 of America’s premier professional and collegiate players in Baltimore.
“We are very proud of both Eric and Dillon for making the 52-man US Men’s Lacrosse Roster,” said DU men’s lacrosse head coach Bill Tierney. “Just being one of 94 invitees to the World Team Try-Out is an honor for these two amazing young men. To make it to the final round, which determines who will represent the United States in the 2014 World Games, here in Denver, is a proud moment for Eric, Dillon and all of us at the University of Denver. These two former Pioneers have led our team to many victories over the last four years and are of a special breed of people both on and off the field. They will continue to represent us and their families as the process of selecting the final team moves on throughout the year.”
These players will train with Team USA at a series of fall and winter events, culminating with Champion Challenge, a US Lacrosse event, where players will vie for 23 spots on the final world championships roster. The annual event will once again be hosted Jan. 24-26 at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
The reigning world champion U.S. Men’s National Team will compete for a record 10th world title at the 2014 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Championships, hosted by US Lacrosse on July 10-19, 2014, in Denver, Colo.
