Justin Pugal and Ryland Rees: Turning Dreams into Reality

However, Rees and Joe Spallina– the current New York Lizards General Manager and No.14-ranked Stony Brook Women’s Lacrosse head coach– assisted Pugal with scoring a tryout under Cannons head coach Sean Quirk. Pugal entered the tryout with the same mindset that he used on the Seawolves to prove his doubters wrong.

“I just keep my head down and work my butt off so if you notice me, you notice me– if you don’t, you don’t,” Pugal said. “I’m just a worker and go balls to the wall every time out there.”

Kevin Crowley: Far from Finished
https://kenferminsbu.wordpress.com/2019/08/02/kevin-crowley-far-from-finished/

Quote
The veteran chose the Lizards and returned to Long Island, playing just an hour away from Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium. Crowley also has another connection to Stony Brook– Lizards General Manager and No.14-ranked Stony Brook Women’s Lacrosse head coach– Joe Spallina. While he may no longer be on the sidelines, Spallina has advised Crowley on maintaining success in New York. 

“We talk quite often and even though he is no longer on the coaching staff,” Crowley said. “He still provides feedback and wants to help however he can beyond the administrative side of the operation. He is such a well respected guy so when he says something to you, you listen.”

NLL mock draft: https://www.insidelacrosse.com/article/stamper-s-musings-first-round-nll-mock-draft/55229

Quote
2 Rochester Knighthawks
Ryland Rees, RT, Burnaby Lakers & Stony Brook
The Knighthawks loaded up on forwards in the expansion draft and subsequent trades, setting them up already with a possibly above-average NLL offence. While they added some solid defenders in the draft and free agency, it's on that side of the ball where could really use a boost. They would get one from Rees. I've heard him compared to Graeme Hossack as a prospect. I'm not sure I'm prepared to go that far, but Rees has shown elite talent both in the box game and as an All-World selection at the 2018 world field lacrosse championships in Israel. While field lacrosse performance doesn't accurately predict box success, being selected as one of the very best in the world the summer after you finished your junior box career is a good sign that you have some serious athleticism.

STAMPER’S TOP 50: THE LEADING PROSPECTS FOR THE 2019 NLL DRAFT
https://www.nll.com/news/2019_top_50/

1. Ryland Rees

RT, Burnaby Lakers & Stony Brook

Rees is a special athlete with a chance to be a player around whom you can build the core of your franchise. Just look at the difference Graeme Hossack makes and how teams have to prepare when they play against him. I don’t see Rees as being at the level of Hossack as a shutdown defender, but few players are, given that Hossack is the best defender to come into the NLL since Kyle Rubisch. Rees is, however, a very good defender with size, strength, speed and the stick skills to contribute in transition.

2019 NLL MOCK DRAFT – ROUNDS 1 & 2

2. Rochester Knighthawks

Ryland Rees, RT | Burnaby Lakers & Stony Brook

No change from my Round 1 Mock here, either (that will be a theme for a good chunk of the first round). Rees is the clear choice for a Rochester team that built a pretty solid NLL offense through the expansion draft, trades and free agency. They got some good defenders, too, but have nowhere near the depth in that end of the floor that they do up front. Rees will be a big addition to address that balance.
