Former Dragon Selected for U.S. Junior Indoor Lacrosse Team

Aug 25, 2015 09:02AM ● Published by Audrey Sellers

U.S. Indoor Lacrosse announced the roster and complete coaching staff for the U.S. Junior Indoor Lacrosse Team, which will compete in the 2015 U19 Indoor Lacrosse Challenge in Six Nations, Ontario, Canada this September. The roster was narrowed down from hundreds of lacrosse players. 

Michael Cox, a 2015 Carroll grad and Southlake native, is the only player selected to play for Team USA outside the Northeast. Cox was a four-year varsity letterman for the Southlake Dragons. Over the past several summers, Cox has played for Blackwolf, a select team based in Washington D.C., and Texas United, a select team from the DFW area. This fall, Cox will be entering Siena College in Albany, New York, as a freshman to play Division 1 lacrosse for the Saints. 

“The chance to represent the USA at this elite level is the ultimate honor in lacrosse,” said USIL President and GM Graham D’Alvia in a press release. “I am honored and look forward to the further development of this team as we represent our great country in this sport, both on and off the turf.”

“We have assembled a talented and passionate group of lacrosse players who all possess several key attributes we were looking for to give us the best opportunity for gold in September. Besides pure lacrosse skills, we were looking for strong character, coach-ability, athleticism, and a team-first attitude that all will best contribute to a family atmosphere and team success. Box lacrosse is a sport that demands a do-anything-for-your-brothers attitude, and we have a group that not only will run and gun, but will get down and dirty for each other when needed,” said Team USA Junior Indoor Head Coach Randy Fraser.

“We are very proud of Michael who will be representing his country, the state of Texas, and Southlake in the upcoming world games. It is evidence that the sport of lacrosse has experienced exponential growth across the country. It is also a tribute to the quality of the play and athletes found in the state of Texas,” said Bart Sullivan, Head Coach and Director for Southlake Carroll Lacrosse Association. 

The U19 World Indoor Lacrosse Challenge takes place at Six Nations, Iroquois Lacrosse Arena, in Ontario, Canada September 11-13, 2015. Iroquois Nationals, Canada, Czech Republic, Nordic and Germany are among the 12 teams that will join the USA in the tournament.
