Florida Launch Select Dylan Molloy with First Overall Pick in 2017 MLL Collegiate Draft

May 28, 2017


BOSTON (May 28, 2017)
– The Florida Launch kicked off the 2017 MLL Collegiate Draft presented by Cascade on Sunday by selecting 2016 Tewaaraton Award winner Dylan Molloy with the first overall selection. The attackman became the 12th player from Brown ever selected in the MLL Draft and the first ever Bear taken in the first round. 

“It’s a pretty great feeling,” Molloy said. “I couldn’t be more excited to be helping out the Florida Launch now. I’m moving forward in lacrosse and just excited to play more lacrosse now.” 

The Launch made four selections in the first 10 picks of the draft, coming away with Molloy, Syracuse stars Nick Mariano and Sergio Salcido, and Maryland defender Tim Muller, who will suit up for the Terps in tomorrow’s NCAA National Championship Game. Mariano is the younger brother of Launch coach Tom Mariano. 

Another Terrapin, Matt Rambo, went No. 3 overall to the Charlotte Hounds. The attackman is a 2017 Tewaaraton finalist and the 2017 Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year. 

The Boston Cannons took Notre Dame midfielder Sergio Perkovic with the second overall selection. The Bloomfield Hills, Mich. native is a three-time All-ACC selection.
