It will be interesting to see what Pressler has been up to out there on the Recruiting Path.
I believe McMahon, the attack from Wilton Ct is the Wilton High all time leading scorer.
Very good player. He now holds the Wilton scoring record that Pressler held once he graduated from Wilton in the 70s. He’s a very good athlete, with tremendous quickness, amazing vision (80+ assists his Senior year), and tremendous stick skills/shooting. Most importantly, he’s highly focused and very tough. I could easily see him being an impact player even as a Freshman. This is exactly the kind of player Bryant needs to get to the next level. Bryant University head coach Mike Pressler is pleased to announce the addition of 14 student athletes to the 2010 Bryant University men’s lacrosse team. The group of newcomers includes a 13 member Class of 2013 and one junior college transfer.
Also joining to the Bulldogs in 2010 are High School All Americans Peter McMahon and Mason Poli, as well as highly touted freshmen JK Poirier, Ian Correia, John Wallace and Teddy Mason.
“Without question, these 14 young men are true student athletes,” said Pressler. “With the NEC playing as a conference for the first time in the spring of 2011, this group of young men will certainly help the Bulldog lacrosse program achieve its goals and reach the level of success we are striving for.”
The new class of Bulldogs also brings to Smithfield the addition of a trio of offensive weapons, five defensemen, five midfielders and a rookie goalie. The Bryant men’s lacrosse program enters its second season of Division I competition in 2010 after a highly successful inaugural campaign that saw the Bulldogs go 10 5, facing off against five nationally ranked opponents and receiving votes in both national polls.
“We are pleased again with our balance at each position, and each of our newcomers has something to contribute to the success of the Bryant lacrosse program,” Pressler said. “In just four short days of fall practice, each of them has demonstrated that, without question, they belong here, and we expect many of our newcomers to compete for playing time early on in their freshman campaigns.”
