Synowiez’s Thoughts

Born in Upstate New York. Graduated from Owego Free Academy and am ranked on the New York State Record’s list for career goals as well as single season goals twice. After high school I attended Onondga C.C. where we won a national championship and was fortunate enough to be named Academic All American along with all conference. After OCC I transferred to Manhattan College and as a junior was named MAAC conference player of the year, 2009 MVP as well as first team all conference junior and senior year while leading my team and the conference in points.

I am very blessed and thankful to have the opportunity to play in a league such as the NALL. I am a firm believer that the sky is the limit with this league and it is an excellent opportunity for American players to make the jump to professional indoor lacrosse. I believe Hunter Francis will do a superb job preparing us for each game this season. I am looking forward to getting back on the floor this winter.
