Seton Hill’s Craig drafted by MLL team

Bill Beckner

Seton Hill is sending another lacrosse player to the pros.

Senior long-stick midfielder Brett Craig was picked by the Atlanta Blaze in the fifth round of the Major League Lacrosse Collegiate Draft.

He was the 39th overall pick but the first chosen from a Division II program.

The reining Great Midwest Athletic Conference Specialist of the Year, Craig is a two-time United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Third Team All-American.

The 6-foot-6, 245-pound Calgary, Alberta native scored 15 goals and passed around eight assists over his first three seasons, to go with 190 ground balls and 71 caused turnovers.

Four other players from Seton Hill have been drafted by pro teams: 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).

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
