The National Lacrosse League has been in existence for many years. The Philadelphia Wings were the most dominating franchise in league history with no fewer than six Championships.
The franchise shuttled out of Philadelphia and went to Uncasville and were the New England Black Wolves.
A hotbed of lacrosse, the Philadelphia faithful suffered through five seasons without a team they could embrace.
The league is in a major expansion mode and opted to bring the brand back to Philadelphia.
An expansion team that suffered growing pains posted a 4-14 record in its inaugural campaign.
Season two is upon us and the roster has been released. So, let’s see how it breaks down.
Some of the biggest names in the game are on the roster. Starting with Trevor Baptiste.
A New Jersey native who was part of the University of Denver winning the NCAA title. Trevor has played in World Games and is regarded as the best face-off man in several leagues.
A few more local products do the roster. Anthony Joaquim, a St. Joe’s product, Kevin Crowley, a Canadian who lives and runs a business here in Philly.
Matt Rambo, a true Philadelphian, is a polarizing character. Always with a smile, a great ambassador of the “Creator’s Game”
Improvement should be their find… buoyed by what may be the most loyal fan base in any sport, the Wings put on the best show in pro sports.
Do you like basketball? Do you like hockey? Do you like to party? The Wings supply a mix of all those components.
Come to a game, show up for the post-game event, meet Coaches, players and meet the nicest athletes you will ever meet!
