National Lacrosse League: Denver Men’s Lacrosse Graduates Cameron Flint And Eric Law Selected 4th And 28th Overall In 2013 NLL Entry Draft


Denver Men's Lacrosse Flint and Law NLL Draft

Former University of Denver standouts Cameron Flint and Eric Law were selected in the 2013 National Lacrosse League’s Entry Draft, held at the Toronto Rock Athletic Center (TRAC) in Oakville, Ontario this week.
Flint was chosen as the fourth overall pick in the first round by the Minnesota Swarm, while Law was drafted by the Toronto Rock as the 28th overall pick in the third round.
Minnesota came into the draft with the fifth overall pick, but packaged it along with defenseman Nik Bilic to the Edmonton Rush in exchange for the fourth overall pick. The Swarm used that selection on Flint, who is an athletic midfielder. As team co-captain of the Pioneers in 2013, Flint notched a team-high 37 goals and was a USILA First Team All-American. Flint, who is 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds, spent the 2013 summer season playing for the Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse (MLL).
A co-captain and three-year starter, Law led the Pioneers with 75 points off 40 goals and 35 assists. He led all DU active players with 146 career points off 83 goals and 66 assists. He was named to the 2013 All-ECAC Second Team. This summer, Law played outdoor lacrosse for the Denver Outlaws, enjoying a phenomenal rookie season including a 9-goal game in their MLL semifinal loss.

“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.”

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.

Major League Lacrosse: Denver Outlaws Rookie Attacker Eric Law In Contention For “MLL Rookie Of The Year Award”; Selected 29th In Draft And Now Starting On League’s Top Attack Line With 20 Goals


Denver Outlaws Rookie Eric Law

Denver Outlaws rookie attackman Eric Law entered MLL as a relative unknown to most lacrosse fans, but his incredible offensive skills have made him a household name in a matter of weeks. Just eight games into his professional career, Law has managed to put himself into contention for Major League Lacrosse’s Cascade Rookie of the Year Award.
In his collegiate career Law was extremely productive, but never seemed to be in the national spotlight for his accomplishments. A transfer from DIII Salisbury, Law was the anchor for the University of Denver’s 2012-13 Final Four team. The Denver native was able to catch the attention of lacrosse fans with his magnificent performance in the last NCAA tournament. After being eliminated from the national championship hunt, Law, who was drafted 29th overall, joined the Outlaws and Major League Lacrosse, a decision that would show the world exactly how talented of a player he truly is.
When Law stepped onto the field for his first MLL game nobody, not even he, could have anticipated the show he would put on for fans during the following two weeks. During his first pair of appearances the rookie went nine-for-nine shooting, a performance that won him Cascade Rookie of the Week honors. Despite being inserted into a lineup with some of the best shooters in the game, Law made his presence felt on the Outlaws’ roster immediately, earning a starting spot on the number one attack line immediately.
On a team where touches are hard to come by, Law has been able to make the most of his shooting chances more often than not. Through his first eight games as a professional, Law has been able to rack up 27 points, 20 of which are goals. His shooting percentage has been well above average; Law is currently scoring on almost 59 percent of his shots.
While some rookies that were highlighted in this feature aren’t contributing to team successes, Law has become an important part of the Outlaw’s unbeaten season. With much of opposing defensive attention dedicated to Brendan Mundorf and Chris Bocklet, Law has been able to sneak in relatively unnoticed and put up some impressive numbers. It could have been easy for Law to get lost in the shuffle of this very deep and talented roster, but he has shone through becoming a valuable offensive weapon.

Major League Lacrosse: University Of Denver Men’s Lacrosse Graduates Mark Matthews, Cam Flint, Chase Carraro And Eric Law Have Entered League And Made Immediate Impacts For Their MLL Teams


University of Denver Lacrosse Players in MLL

A relative unknown in lacrosse until recent successes, the University of Denver has produced MLL’s newest and most talented athletes: Mark Matthews (New York Lizards), Cam Flint (Boston Cannons), Chase Carraro (Ohio Machine), and most notably Denver Outlaws attacker Eric Law, have all entered the league and have made immediate impacts for their respective teams.

Despite Law’s successes early on in his professional career, he is not the first Denver graduate that made an immediate impact. In 2012 the Denver Outlaws selected Mark Matthews, a shifty Canadian lefty who made a name for himself with his highlight reel goals. During his time in college, Matthews became Denver’s workhorse leading his team to a pair of NCAA tournament appearances. Now a member of the New York Lizards, Matthews continues to score goals, but maintains that growing the game is the most important goal of all.

The Western part of the United States is historically known for its legendary gold rush, outlaw cowboys, and sharp shooters who became famous for their incredible aim and accuracy. Now, in 2013, there is a new breed of sharpshooters emerging from the Wild West, only now they’re suiting up in MLL uniforms.

Traditionally in the lacrosse community, the schools that produce the majority of MLL talent lie on the east coast of the US. Schools like Syracuse, Johns Hopkins, and Cornell are known for molding their athletes into Major League Lacrosse’s stars of the future, but as the game continues to grow at an exponential rate there is a new lacrosse program churning out some of MLL’s brightest young stars, the University of Denver.

The story for Denver started in 2009 with the arrival of legendary coach, and father of MLL champion goaltender Trevor, Bill Tierney. Despite some serious doubt by lacrosse experts across the country, Tierney left his well-established Princeton program to join the Pioneers, a decision that has grown the game in Colorado, and has ultimately produced some of the professional game’s finest young players.

“So many things drew me to Denver after 22 wonderful years at Princeton,” said Tierney. “A chance to coach with my son, Trevor, a chance to help get a relatively new program, albeit a program that was left in very good shape by Coach [Jamie] Munro, get to the next level in an area where it hadn’t been done before. A chance to be an ambassador for the game as it grows in so many different areas, and a new beginning to recharge my personal ‘professional batteries’.”
