Boston's Pro Lacrosse Team Drafts Danvers Defender
Tim Langmaid of Danvers was selected in the 10th round of the Major League Lacrosse supplemental draft on Wednesday.
A lacrosse player from Danvers was selected 78th overall by the Boston Cannons in Wednesday's Major League Lacrosse supplemental draft.
The Cannons said on its website that defender Tim Langmaid was taken inthe 10th round. Langmaid is from Danvers and played high school lacrosse at Governor's Academy in Byfield - where he was an All-American - and later in college at the University of Delaware.
Langmaid was one of six defenders selected by the Cannon on Wednesday.
“Obviously another priority was adding depth to our defense,” said Coach Steve Duffy in the team's announcement of its draft picks. “Overall, we’re happy with the guys we picked up and hope that a number of them will contribute in 2013; We brought back a few guys who have already proven themselves as contributors, plus a few new guys we’re excited to get a look at in March.”
While at Governor's, Langmaid was also a star running back on the football team, scoring 15 touchdowns and rushing for 1,275 yards in his senior year. He played his freshman and sophomore years - on both the football and lacrosse teams - at Danvers High School.
The Cannons are one of eight Major League Lacrosse teams in the U.S. and Canada and has been part of the league since it started in 2001. The team plays at Harvard Stadium in Allston during the regular season, which runs April to August.
