@UMassMLacrosse Alum Will Manny On @MLL_Lacrosse Most Improved Player Watch List

University of Massachusetts men's lacrosse alumnus Will Manny (2010-13) is among five current Major League Lacrosse competitors named to the MLL's 2014 Most Improved Player Watch List. Manny, in his second professional season, ranks among the most successful attackman in MLL this year. Read more on Manny's successes courtesy of Major League Lacrosse's release below:

The sophomore attackman is a powerhouse on offense and a consistent goal scorer for the Boston Cannons. He falls right behind teammate Paul Rabil in team points (51) and ranks among the top five in the MLL for points, goals and assists (51pts, 32g, 19a). During his rookie season with the Cannons, he proved his ability to be a threat on offense, scoring 18 goals and tallying 12 assists in just 10 games. With one season under his belt, he's built upon his rookie success and continues to exceed expectations. He will have to step up to the plate this weekend against the Rattlers to give Boston a chance to nail a spot in the playoffs.
