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).
