Seton Hill is sending another lacrosse player to the pros.

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

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

He scored 15 goals and had 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).
