Former Seton Hill standout Craig picked in pro lacrosse draft

Bill Beckner

With his name called in another high-end lacrosse draft, Brett Craig is set to take his skills to the next level.

Craig, the former Seton Hill defensive stalwart, was selected by the Colorado Mammoth Tuesday night in the second round of the National Lacrosse League Draft.

He was the 26th player picked.

The Calgary, Alberta native was the Great Midwest Athletic Conference Specialist of the Year last season. He is a two-time United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Third Team All-American.

Craig had been with the Atlanta Blaze, a Major League Lacrosse team that drafted him in March. But he was on the team’s collegiate inactive roster.

The 6-foot-6, 245-pound Craig joins a strong list of Seton Hill alums to be selected by pro teams. Others include: Zack Rusch (Dallas Rattlers, 2019 Major League Lacrosse Supplemental Draft), Matt Delmonico (Vancouver Warriors, 2014, National Lacrosse League Draft), Jimmy Delaney (Philadelphia Wings, 2013, NLL Draft), and Joel Zalesky (Toronto Nationals, 2010, MLL Supplemental Draft).

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
